Glucosamine works for me. I had a hip replaced 6 years ago...starting to get indications from the other side...I try going without the glucosamine periodically to see if I am wasting my money, but it is never long before I am back on the stuff. I thought the fish oil was for cholesterol control??
In this age of information; IGNORANCE IS A CHOICE!!
i believe that glucosamine (without chondroitin) is very helpful with inflammation - i have RA and started taking it about 15 years ago - and it is very effective. Fish oil (omega 3's) are slightly different - but it does help some what with inflammation. i believe it is more for brain health- and other functions of the body. it won't do you any harm to take both -

I have read quite a bit on the benefits of fish oil and/or glucosamine for improved joint comfort. I have recently started jogging again and am having some soreness in my knees. I am just wondering if anyone else has any experience with one or both of these supplements.
