NOW Vegetarian Glucosamine & MSM combines two well-known joint support ingredients in a vegetarian/vegan friendly formula that does not include shellfish-derived Glucosamine. Glucosamine is an essential building block for the formation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans, the main components of cartilage tissue. These compounds attract water to form a joint cushion, providing lubrication and shock absorption. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic form of sulfur, a mineral necessary for the production of GAGs and proteoglycans.
Now Foods developed the glucosamine test method chosen as the official AOACI industry standard method.
Take 2 capsules 1 to 2 times daily.
Cellulose (capsule), stearic acid (vegetable source), magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silica.
Not manufactured with wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, fish, shellfish or tree nut ingredients. Produced in a GMP facility that processes other ingredients containing these allergens.
The glucosamine used in this product is derived from a non-GMO corn source.
Natural color variation may occur in this product.
Caution: For adults only. Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition (especially glaucoma). Keep out of reach of children.

The Now Glucosamine and MSM does seem to help my back quite a bit, without any side effects. I've tried MSM by itself, and it doesn't seem to maintain quite the same level of relief. I'm using it to help with a thin disc and a bit of arthritis in the lower back, at the base of the spine. I would say that the anti-inflammatory effects are also keeping the muscles from spasming when the area gets a little tweaked, which is something I was having a real problem with. From the info I've found on this topic, condroitin is not nearly as easily absorbed by the digestive system, so it's better to go with MSM and glucosamine, which are precursors of condroitin, and are much more readily absorbed.
This is the best form of glucosamine I've ever used. I've managed osteoarthritis for 25+ years (yes, it hit me at an early age) and no product has helped like this. I appreciate the high dosage also which cuts down on the number of "pills" to ingest daily. Thank you iherb!!!

As I am an athlete the product is very important to keep my joints in good condition and also the benefit of not using animals sacrificed for their production.
