I've used Glucosamine Sulfate for ~15 years with excellent results until about 2 years ago (I'm older now :-)). I tried different brands to see if that would help...didn't. I read about the two types, Glucosamine Sulfate and Glucosamine HCl (hydrochloride) and learned that the HCl type puts more available Glucosamine into the joint cartilage. I switched to the Jarrow brand of Glucosamine HCl and my joint pain improved significantly again within 2-3 weeks. Great stuff!

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 1991 and had allergic reactions to the various medicines used to treat the disease, except for Prednisone. However, Prednisone has significant side effects with long term use and it was only partially effective for my symptoms. After much online research, I learned that high doses of a particular balance of EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids had a modest benefit in controlling Ulcerative Colitis. Natural Factors RxOmega-3 has that balance. I added it to my treatment regimen in 2004, and since then have been off of the Prednisone and symptom free. I continue taking the RxOmega-3 at a lower amount and have been back doing great!
