Glucosamine/Chondroitin /MSM type Joint Supplements do work, however they take a long time to kick in and take effect, you'll likely have to go through an entire container before you feel any benefit at all.

I'd actually recommend looking into cissus quadrangularis. I highly recommend it. Not only does it work faster but I've found it to work better.

My joints are put under quite a bit of stress being that I train with a lot of heavy weights and do a lot of heavy pressing movements. I used to get HORRIBLE pain in my elbows and it's virtually gone when I take this ****. It's a little on the expensive side, but it's well worth it.

Recently there was a trial done with glucosamine and there was no scientific evidence at all that it actually helped building cartlidge back up in your joints.

It was said to be a complete waste of money.

But on the other hand a lot of people swear by it.

I used to take all sorts of supplements, includin glucosamine/chondroitin and have come to the conclusion about the only worthwhile supplement is protein for post workout to prevent catabolism when running lean on body fat...to not lose muscle. Most of the rest are seriously pointless. I was talking to a pharmacist about 1 1/2 years ago and had an armful of stuff ready to buy, again, and he item for item laughed off (with reasons) the waste of money I was about to purchase. And it was HIS pharmacy. lol
