A common misconception is that all glucosamine and chondroitin supplements are the same. The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) sets the standards for all drugs and dietary supplements. Many of the glucosamine and chondroitin products sold on and off the web do not meet these standards. This supplement is not as strictly regulated in the United States as it is in Europe and the products that have been proven effective, are not required to be used in supplements. We recommend two products, one liquid and one capsule.

Supple Bodies
Supple Bodies is the clear leader in the liquid supplement area. Supple is a premade drink containing 1500mg of Glucosamine and 1200mg of Chondroitin per serve. Supple is the only supplement that has the right to use the same Chondroitin that was used in the GAIT study mentioned in the research section. It's Glucosamine is completely shellfish free (the only product of its kind), which leaves it very safe to use for people with allergies. It needs to be taken once a day.

Supple Bodies recognizes and addresses the problem of obesity in society, and how it leads to joint problems. The more weight you carry, the more strain on your joints. Supple is a liquid supplement, it is also marketed as a diet supplement. It is rich and full in flavor, has only 30 calories, and leaves a feeling of satiety. If you suffer from joint discomfort because you are overweight, this can be a bonus in aiding your weight loss and achieving better joint health.

Both are quality products, with the reccommended values. Supple Bodies is a liquid supplement and is likely to produce better results. However, given the significant price difference, if budget is a problem, you will get good results from Joint Advance.
