Glucosamine Chondroitin complex

Its supposed to help with joints. My 54 year old shoulders and knees could use some help. Has anyone tried this and what effect on BG does it have?

After 10+ years using various supplements on an arthritic horse, I SWEAR by glucosomine + chondroitin sulfate.    I truly believe the combination is far more effective that either individually.

 

As for raising glucose levels...  I take it, and don't see a negative impact.

In fact, I have an article bookmarked on my other computer that has a pretty interesting research study that indicates glucosomine HELPS with blood sugar regulation in diabetics...

(I'll try to post the link tonight, unless someone finds it first....)

It has helped my arthritis quite a bit as does Black Cohash.  Neither has affected my blood sugar although I have seen cautions that glucosamine can. Just monitor carefully when you start so you can take corrective action or discontinue. It does take several weeks to see much improvement in my experience.
