Is Liquid Glucosamine
the Most Effective Form?
Glucosamine comes in three forms. The injection form would
be most effective. However there are no commercially available products of
the sort today. The other forms are solid (found in solid pills and capsules),
and the liquid form. Ingesting a high quality liquid form of glucosamine will
provide very much the same benefits as found in the injection form.
the problems with absorption, the solid forms found in pills and capsules
are not recommended. For humans, another great advantage in using liquid
glucosamine is the simplicity of administration. Simply drink the product
plain or mix it with a favorite drink. We take ours in our morning
drink of orange juice along with our multi-vitamin, Vitaplen
In pets, the liquid is of course much preferred by dog and
cat owners. Although we can give our dogs pills with no problem, it is much
easier to simply grab a bottle of liquid glucosamine, squeeze to fill the
measure spout, and pour it over their food. And of course they prefer that

Finding the Best
Some of the criteria to be considered when choosing a
glucosamine product should be:
• The effective dose size
• Is the form solid or liquid
• The type of Glucosamine
• The other ingredients in the product
• The overall quality
• The cost per dose
The effective dose size is important. In pills the glucosamine is bound to
fillers which bind the tablet or capsule together. It could take numerous
pills to equal the 1500 mg dose size found in most liquid glucosamine products.
The pure glucosamine found in the liquid form is not bound to stabilizers
or fillers. This provides much greater absorption, better results, and far
less waste. Note that most glucosamine in the pill form only provides between
300 and 700 mg per dose. With liquid glucosamine it is much easier to get
your daily dose. Although some manufacturers suggest splitting the liquid
dose into two daily parts, this is still preferred over taking glucosamine
in the pill form. The absorption rate of liquid glucosamine is far better.
found in the Glucosamine Products are Important Too
and MSM are compounds often found in glucosamine
products. These substances have been shown in many studies to enhance
the effectiveness of glucosamine in the body. These two compounds and glucosamine
form a “buddy” system which is highly effective in building and
repairing joint cartilage. Other helpful ingredients found in most liquid
glucosamine products are Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Niacinamide, Aloe Vera, Bromelaine,
Boswellia Serrata (Boswellin), Manganese Ascorbate, Vitamin A, Vitamin E,
Vitamin C, and Yucca. These ingredients are known as “synergistic”
in how they work with each other and glucosamine. Basically, this means their
benefit when combined is greater than their sum total benefit when used individually.
(I hope that made sense!) In other words, they work better as a team than
when used alone.
Glucosamine products can often fetch a very high price.
However, if they are quality products which produce very positive results,
the cost compared to
prescription type drugs can be quite low. And you do not want to skimp
on supplement products. Many supplement manufacturers have been known to use
inferior ingredients in order to offer a low price. Beware of products using
KCL and NaCl forms of glucosamine. It is important to note the cost of both
of our glucosamine products, Synflex
starts at only $19.48 per bottle. Volume discounts are available for a significant
discount with low and free shipping offers. Be sure to compare this 32 day
supply of 1500 mg doses with the solid form of pills. A bottle of glucosamine
tablets selling for $8.99 may be very high priced when the cost per month/dose
The Ease of Administration
Liquid glucosamine is just plain easy to take. Both of
our products come with an easy pour spout. No spoons or other measuring utensils
are required. Simply unscrew the cap from the measuring reservoir, squeeze
the bottle to fill the reservoir with the proper dose, and pour it out. We
pour ours into orange juice. Some people do take it “straight”,
but we find both products a little hard to take plain.
for Dogs and Cats…and Horse
We can’t say enough about the positive benefits
of using liquid glucosamine for dog
arthritis as well as in cats and horses. It seems dogs have more issues
with arthritis in old age than cats. Therefore, we sell far more glucosamine
for dogs than for other pets. We have so many returning customers for the
product, there is no doubt of the great results dogs are having with it. In
fact, several years ago, our old dog Storm is who showed us the benefits of
Liquid Glucosamine! We have been believers and users of it ever since.
Methods of Use
For people (and pets) who have not been taking glucosamine,
it is suggested that the dose be doubled for the first seven to ten days.
We include a dosage chart with each purchase. For very large dogs and average
sized people, one bottle will last 32 days. For smaller dogs, a bottle can
last several to many months. As I said above, we mix ours in our morning drink
of orange juice. Although some suggest splitting the daily dose into two,
we have always taken the full dose once per day. This works well for us, but
you may want to experiment with it. For dogs, simply pour it over their food
at mealtime. 99.9% of dogs don’t mind it at all. However, cats can be
a different story. The majority of cats will not appreciate anything different
on their food. It may take some trickery on the owner’s part to sneak
it into the food.
Liquid glucosamine is a tried and proven product. Thousands
of people use the product every day and enjoy its benefits of easing joint
soreness. Both human
arthritis and pets with arthritis benefit greatly from glucosamine. It
is definitely worth trying as a first line of defense against arthritis.
