A health source of mine says N-acetyl glucosamine and glucosamine hydrochloride have not been proven effective. N-acetyl is said to bind to dietary substances in the intestinal tract, and is then excreted with the body's waste materials. Studies claim that glucosamine sulfate is best aborbed by the body.
Also, Chondroitin sulfate molecules are said to be too large to be absorbed. It seems the only product to use is 100% Glucosamine Sulfate.
Anyone else have similar findings?
