People may have chronic joint pain and inflammation, you may think about some supplements. It can help a lot. Sometime my thumb pain, or my wife ankle old injury , we will eat some after meal, pain gone in a week.
But people feel lot of bloating after that. I graduated from Tianjin Medical university in Pharmacy,we learned half west medicine, and half chinese herb medicine, I give you some idea how to choose the smooth one for your stomach.
The key is Sulfate or Hydrochioride, very simple:
Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondroitin Sulfate will be better
Glucosamine Hydrochioride, Chondroitin Hydrochlorid , are more bloating.
FYI: In TCM, Sulphur is "Fire in the Fire", is a very warm chemical in herb as well. It is like you cook something bitter vegetable(in TCM is cold) put Ginger to balance. Maybe that's the reason.
