[RC] Glucosamine - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: ti tivers@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Tom and Bruce
I was taking Cosequin for my own back and neck pain-- how does this rate on the
Hyaluronic Acid, Glucosamine HCL and Chrondroitin? I remember it contained all
three. Been awhile and I no longer have any container to check the ingredients.

At this point, I am no longer up on the newest joint products, save for my 
own--and I have somebody else design them because it's not my area of 
expertise. All I know about Cosequin is that it was very expensive when it 
first came out,and, according to some of my people, unjustifiably so. Adding 
powdered HA is relatively new, but the science says that all three ingredients 
(in sulfate form) are effective. I've not read any science on HCL-specific 

Since cartilage has little to no blood circulation, the goal is to supply 
nutrients via the synovial membrane/synovial fluid. This requires keeping the 
synovial membrane quiet (no inflammation) and also requires some exercise. 
Still, joint cartilage is "plastic" (changeable) and can be put into an 
anabolic or catabolic state depending on the state of its environment.
