Equate: Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM W/Joint Lubricant Dietary Supplement is very effective for my osteoarthritis. And the relief was surprising quick (within weeks). Though the caplet is a little larger than a basic Glucosamine Chondroitin caplet, it is smaller and easier to take than the large MSM capsule; and it combines the Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and MSM with the highly effective joint lubricant (Boswellia Sarata) into one well balanced caplet. I'm very pleased with this product.
My Chiropractor recommended I start taking a Glucosamine product due to my arthritic knee, back and neck. I started taking this product about 3 weeks ago and my knee is no longer binding up. My neck is a bit more flexible and so is my back. As for appearance-I personally do not care-I only want the product to work. As for the taste, since I take 9 other meds for breakfast, all in one gulp and do not chew any of them, there is no distinguishing flavor. Just a good product.
I have been using Equate Glucosamine-Chondroitin for a few years, and it makes a huge difference in my knees. (I have osteoarthritis in almost every joint, and my knees used to hurt all the time.) Unfortunately, my local Wal-Mart seems to have stopped carrying the Equate Glucosamine-Chondroitin caplets, which were coated to make them easier to swallow, so now I'm trying other similar products. Most recently, I bought this product, but I won't buy it again. It is NOT coated, so the pills are hard to swallow. Plus, the addition of MSM gives it an absolutely AWFUL taste, so that I have an involuntary wretching response every time I take a pill. I take two pills daily, so this is extremely unpleasant. But it DOES work. it's just very unpleasant. Next time, I'll be looking for a brand with NO MSM, and with easier-to-swallow pills.
Tried to take this for a couple weeks.
Broke in half, trying not to gag due to size of pill.
Gagged and, sorry, threw up medication most times Would buy again if in gelcap form. As is, I buy another brand that is chewable. Prefer gelcaps though.
