In a recent medical journal article which reviewed the findings of two published, randomized clinical trials of glucosamine HCl and chondroitin sulfate or chondroitin sulfate alone, renowned orthopedic surgeon, Nicholas DiNubile, MD, commented that “patient safety and a significant degree of efficacy are excellent reasons to recommend glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate in combination, to patients”. In the medical practice article, he mentioned Cosamin®DS by name, pointing out to physician and surgeon readers, that if they want to reproduce the results of the clinical trials in their practice, “brand does matter”. * *DiNubile NA.

Wouldn't go without by Cowboy'smom from Bryn Mawr, PA07/25/2012
Have used CosaminDS for 10+ years now at suggestion of an orthopedic surgeon. Have no knee/joint pain as long as I take 2 capsules daily. Once in a while I run out and forget to buy more for a month or so, and I start to get knee pains when walking and on stairs. Then I remember I've not been on my Cosamin, buy it, use it, and pain is gone in a matter of weeks. I use the pet version of Cosamin daily for my senior dogs, too. Buy the name brand for this, it makes a difference.
Feel the difference by Chubs from Vancouver, Washington12/08/2012

Great product to help people by jude from Deerfield, IL02/12/2014
Both my husband and I use Cosamin DS for Humans daily and would not be without it - we both suffer from arthritis and Cosamin DS has helped the pain in my hands significantly. I have used Cosequin for my horse for 13 years which has helped her enormously into her late twenties. Thank you Nutramax for a guaranteed assay in a great product.
Best Glucosamine product! by pocoloco15 from Washington state05/30/2012
I began taking a glucosamine supplement after I witnessed my old dog's improvement. She had gotten so sore and stiff from arthritis, she could no longer climb the stairs. After about a month on a glucosamine supplement she was up and down the stairs without any problems! This was enough to convince me to give it a try. I have tried several brands of glucosamine, but the Cosamin ASU is the best I have found! When taken as directed, I find that I have very little pain in my knees from the arthritis, and a noticeable increase in my discomfort level if I forget to take it.
When my Vet recommended the Cosamin brand for my current dog, I was delighted to find that it also came in a human form, because I wasn't entirely happy with the brand I had been using. This is one product I do not ever want to run out of!
