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”. *

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.
