Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM for Your Joints:
- Doctor’s Best Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM provides three important nutrients which help support healthy joints and connective tissues: glucosamine, chondroitin, and Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM, from OptiMSM**).
- Glucosamine sulfate helps joint health for joint lubrication, better joint movement and flexibility.*
- Cartilage, composed of proteoglycans, is mainly located on bones, near the joints and consists primarily of collagen protein with side chains called chondroitin sulfate.
Glucosamine Chondroitin MSM Benefits:
- Those with osteoarthritis, muscle damage caused by exercise, and other inflammatory joint disorders commonly use to help support their joints.
- Glucosamine is a naturally occurring substance that is believed to help develop and renew cartilage (the hard connective tissue mainly located on bones near joints in the body), and keep it lubricated for better joint movement and flexibility.
- MSM supplies bioavailable sulfur which is needed to support joint health, hair, skin, and nails.
- OptiMSM** is purified via distillation for highest purity and consistency and is an excellent source of bioavailable sulfur.
FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is MSM used for?
MSM is used for muscle pain. It has shown some clinical evidence that it can be helpful for arthritis-related joint discomfort due to joint pain, but it is usually used in combination with other, more effective joint supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin. MSM, like omega 3 and niacinamide are synergistic ingredients for arthritis-related joint discomfort due to joint pain, meaning it helps the glucosamine do its job more effectively.
What is MSM?
The key issue with MSM is what kind of effect it has on the body and why you would take it. Unlike Glucosamine, you already get some MSM from your diet. Strictly speaking, MSM is the biologically available (organic) form of sulfur. Sulfur is one of the major components of food and one of the most prevalent materials in the body. Most likely due to its chemical similarity to sulfur, MSM has shown to be effective at relieving inflammation and some would argue that MSM is far better than some of the other COX2 drugs or NSAIDS out there.

Wheres the Proof?
Extensive joint health research over the past few decades has investigated the effects of glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, or a combination of the two.
A 2009 meta-analysis summarized results from 6 well-designed studies involving a total of 1,502 research participants. Some of the conclusions about the apparent effectiveness of long-term oral supplementation with CS or GS.
Glucosamine sulfate at 1,500 mg daily over a period of at least 3 years and chondroitin sulfate at 800 mg daily over a period of at least 2 years both helped subjects maintain healthy knee cartilage structure.3
Glucosamine sulfate is one of the most important—and thoroughly researched—dietary supplements for joint health ever developed.
In addition to its potential to influence joint structure and function, research also backs the ability of GS to influence joint comfort.4,5
In a randomized, double-blind study of 252 subjects, joint comfort in the knee was found to be higher in the glucosamine sulfate group than the placebo group.
Similar studies of equal magnitude found that GS enhanced joint comfort.
