    How much do you take? Im doing 1500mg a day and its doing some amazing stuff for my knee. I have been on it for a week and the pain Ive had for 8 months nearly gone.

    I take 5-10g after workouts but not at any other time.

    I may get more through the foods I eat but I'm not 100% sure about that.

    glucosamine & chondroitin is everywhere... easier to get that than whey for most people. Not sure about the hy- acid

    You see my gripe is this, and for this I will use damage of articular cartliage as my example, caused by osteoarthitis or some kind of injury. Articular cartliage when damaged has very limited self repair mechanisms, why is this? Because simply they dont have veins, they are avascular, so I'm interested how the glucosamine goes to repair the cartliage

    No doubt, natural chondroiton at its finest; and instead of potato chips, he just munches on oyster shells for the glucosamine. That's a man among men, I tell you.

    Just picked up some tonight. Glucosamine/Chondroitin. Hopefully it'll help.
