    I usually take about 1500mg a day of Glucosamine Sulfate. It'll take sometime before you actually feel any improvement. I started taking it about a year and half ago after a knee scope. My joints don't pop as much as they did but still will occasionally after sitting for extended periods. ;) And you're right, a long day of trolling can be very tiring...!

  3. Glucosamine HC1 1500 mg + MSM 1500 mg
    The msm is a sulfur that helps the clucosamine make collagen, an important component of healthy joints.

    I have been taking this for about three years, it works for me. But it does nothing for my wife. So I guess it works for some people and not others.

    And it does take about 6 weeks before you notice any improvement in flexibility and range of motion.

    Glucosamine is derived from shellfish. If you are allergic to shellfish you my want to give the doctor a call before taking this.

    The best deal I have found is at Sam’s Club -- Member’s Mark , less than $15.00 for 250 tabs, 2 tabs a day, 125 days worth.

    I've been taking the same stuff as Blue Pike and have had similar results. It might of been in my head, but I swore it started working about an hour after I started taking it. 6 months so far and I'm a believer!
  5. I took it for about 2 months did not do anything for me. But I know people who swear by it, it won't hurt to try. I think it depends on your body whether it does anything or not.

    I take Glucosamine ( 2 tabs =1500 mg per day). It works.

  7. I tried them about 6 years ago and all I remember is that my joints were worse after taking them. Everybody is different, I guess.

    An hour after taking it? Are you sure you were taking the same stuff as Blue Pike?:D Maybe I should start taking it because after the workout that I had last Saturday, I was kinda sore:p:D
