Glucosamine sulfate is the ideal supplement for joints. For joint pain, many take aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen. While they're effective at suppressing symptoms, they do nothing for cartilage repair. They may even inhibit it.
Glucosamine gets to the root of the problem and can help support and repair joints. One study showed it took 4 weeks for glucosamine to surpass ibuprofen with respect to joint comfort, demonstrating it takes longer to work but ultimately produced better results.
Chondroitin sulfate works synergistically with glucosamine. Experts say it is best taken with glucosamine in a 5:4 ratio, glucosamine sulfate (1,500 mg): chondroitin sulfate (1,200 mg) for a 120-200 pound person.
Researchers from the Arthritis Center, Boston University School of Medicine, reviewed 15 human studies on the use of glucosamine and chondroitin for joints. The results showed significant improvement in all patients with joint problems using either material. All of the studies showed them to be extremely safe with almost no side effects. The range of doses was 500 mg to 1,500 mg of glucosamine and 800 mg to 1,200 mg of chondroitin daily in the sulfate form. Reliable benefits were found to take 4 to 8 weeks to occur. The most popular daily dose is 1,500 mg glucosamine and 1,200 mg chondroitin.X-ray evidence shows glucosamine sulfate works better than placebo
Another study of glucosamine sulfate from the British journal Lancet again confirmed its benefits for joint health. Over 3 years, 212 patients were given a placebo or 1,500 mg of glucosamine sulfate daily. Instead of just measuring the patient's subjective reports of pain or stiffness, the researchers demonstrated measurable, objective evidence of glucosamine's joint benefits. X-rays of the knees in the glucosamine group were taken at various intervals during the study and showed significant benefits. X-rays from those taking a placebo showed continued degeneration of the knee joint. There were no side effects or complications noted in the glucosamine group.
Note: this study used the sulfate form of glucosamine used in Lindberg products. Lindberg uses a potassium stabilized form (2KCl) of glucosamine sulfate, not sodium, to reduce unwanted salt.
What is MSM?
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a source of sulfur, one of the most abundant minerals in the human body. Sulfur is essential in many body functions. It's critical to the production of healthy collagen -- the building block of nails, skin, hair, joints and other connective tissues.*82% improvement in those taking MSM
Several studies have measured the effects of MSM in athletes and patients with joint problems.
Injured athletes taking MSM, in addition to their usual physical therapy, reported improved recovery (58%) versus a placebo group (33%). In addition, athletes using MSM had 40% fewer office visits during treatment.
Then, a double-blind study showed patients with joint comfort issues who took 2,250 mg of MSM daily for 6 weeks reported an average 82% improvement, compared to 18% for those taking a placebo.

Don't pay more at the drugstore!
A big store doesn't always mean big savings! A recent survey showed a national brand of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate sold at a large drugstore chain was substantially more expensive than our comparable Lindberg product.
Despite the drugstore product being 30% off retail, Lindberg was still about 35% less expensive. You would save about $8.00 in just one month by taking the Lindberg brand.
Survey based on Lindberg brand with 500 mg glucosamine sulfate (preferred form) and 400 mg chondroitin sulfate in capsule form. Comparison national drugstore brand product contained 500 mg glucosamine HCl and 400 mg chondroitin sulfate in tablet form and was priced at 30% off retail. Survey product available at Walgreens.com. Survey date Feb. 25, 2013.
