Ingredients & Description
This supplement trio is designed to rebuild, strengthen and lubricate tired and worn cartilage and joints. Doctor’s Best Glucosamine-Chondroitin-MSM delivers safe and effective science based nutritional supplements for the benefit of your joints and to maintain healthy movement, free from aches and pain.
Glucosamine sulfate is one of the most important nutritional supplements for joint health ever developed. Glucosamine sulfate provides significant benefits for both the structure and function of joints. Many years of research have produced unequivocal evidence that glucosamine sulfate normalizes cartilage metabolism, slows breakdown of cartilage, and improves joint function.
Controlled studies have demonstrated the benefits and effectiveness of Chondroitin Sulfate. Substantial increases in joint cartilage thickness and improved joint function have been documented in a 1996 clinical trial published in the Journal of Rheumatology,
U.C.L.A. School of Medicine conducted a small trial to test the effects of MSM on joints Sixteen subjects demonstrating need for joint support took either MSM or a placebo daily for six weeks. As measured by a Visual Analog Scale, those taking MSM registered an 82 percent improvement compared to 20 percent with placebo. Though preliminary due to the small number of subjects, these results suggest MSM is a major component of healthy joint support. Widespread in nature, MSM is found in a variety of foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, raw milk, raw meat and raw fish. However, MSM is a volatile substance easily lost during cooking, pasteurization, food processing and storage. The average American diet thus supplies at best a marginal MSM intake, which may be inadequate to maintain the optimum MSM concentration in the body.

Asked on: September 7, 2013
Question: This product have any side effect. And if I feel better and leave medicine after 3 month then pain will again start or permanent benefit of this product.
A: According to the PDR for Nutritional Supplements, there are no known contraindications for MSM, except that it should not be used by pregnant and nursing mothers. (This is a general precaution that is applied because MSM has not been proven safe in pregnancy, not because it is known to be unsafe.) If taking blood-thinning medications or aspirin on a regular basis, consulting your physician to determine if a lower starting dose of MSM is recommended. Some people may experience mild gastrointestinal bloating, constipation or indigestion (Kim et al. 2006).
We cannot say for sure whether or not the pain will completely go away after stopping use. Most people take the recommended dosage continually as needed to support the condition they are using it for however your physician may be able to provide you more insight on the use of this supplement.
