Re: [at-l] Glucosamine



Yes, this is the problem with the "diet supplements".
The FDA only requires a lack of danger, but no
controls over efficacy or even that the strength is
correct. The 500 mg on the bottle may apply to 500mg
of saccharine, but very little glucosamine actually in
the pill.

I hope CR is also looking at differences between
Glucosamine and the combo products with Chondroitin. I
doubt there will be differences to suggest the price
difference is worthwhile.
