Everything here is anecdotal information. My orthopedist shared some articles with me about using glucosamine/condroitin which stated that there have not been definitive studies that confirm their effectiveness for joint discomfort. However, they can't hurt.

I've been taking this stuff for a year now. Has it helped? Maybe. Not sure. Hasn't hurt.

Some brands do not deliver the stated dosage. There are articles available online (sorry, you'll have to search) that rate the quality of different brands of this OTC supplement.

People have reported giving it to their old dogs, mixing in their food, and watching them walk years younger. Still anecdotal but it would suggest it's not the placebo effect.

My Roti and Dobi were on Glucosamine 1000mg and Cartrophin injections to help with their joint pain in their later years. As said, studies have proved inconclusive, but the cartrophin seemed to help them, they were noticeably more mobile after those injections and the glucosamine can't hurt.

The only natural remedy that I've actually noticed a lessening in pain from is turmeric, 95% curcumin extract with bioperine. Coming from someone with two arthritic shoulders, 3 surgeries on my right shoulder to fix soft tissue injuries, two arthritic knees, an arthritic lumbar area, and a surgery on each elbow, one to reattach one of my tricep heads and the other to remove calcium. It takes a healthy dose, even so.
