saw an ads in the star by Live-Well, the number to call is 03-6142 6570. For knee pain, the contain is Glucosamine + Chondroitin.
As compare to the nowfoods, they got extra MSM. Now at least 2 manufacture also have both the Glucosamine + Chondroitin. What it is?
Glucosamine - from wiki, it said it is a amino sugar actually. it naturally present in the shells of shellfish, animal bones and bone marrow.
Supplemental glucosamine may help to prevent cartilage degeneration and treat arthritis.
I think it apply to anything, as long as it is within the limit, it is fine. Hence overdoeses of Glucosamine could impact the pancrease and could lead to dieabetes, of course it is amino sugar.
Now what is this Chondoitin? it is also a sugar and it is an important element for Carliage - the soft tissue connecting the bones.
