    So I had a co-worker tell me only to use Glucosamine sulfate, I have heard the opposite form other people, and it seems like the "strength" of the pills are somewhat all equal and dosage is BS. Some say 2 tablets per day but then their extra strength one a day looks to have the same amount per pill as the regular.

    so whihc kind of glucosamine shoudl I take and how much active ingredient should I be taking in?

    'Joint Smoother' Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM

    each serving:
    Glucosamine (1500mg)
    Chondroitin (1200mg)

    Got 3 bottles of it for free when Puritan's Pride had that $10 off $10 purchase thing.

    Get it from a good source. Glucosamine is glucosamine, negligible difference in "quality"; however, if you get it cheap, chances are the content of glucosamine as stated on the nutrition label may be inaccurate (remember supplements are not controlled by the FDA, yet). You get what you pay for.

    This stuff is excellent.

    Some studies indicate that but I take it just in case. I don't have great joints now and I don't want to find out 30 years down the road that glucosamine would have helped all along.
