Osteoarthritis & Glucosamine, Crystalline

“Dona”is the brand of crystalline glucosamine sulfate sold in the US.  The crystalline form is actually patented and sold to Dona by a French pharma co.  I scanned many studies that reported significant benefits of 1500mg daily.  Reportedly, it’s the most effective form of glucosamine supplementation for osteoarthritis.

Update 10Mar2016:  My MRI shows some lumbar arthritis.  So started daily dose of 1500mg, powder form.  Hoping for less lumbar pain in the future.

RESOURCES: Various papers on PubMed.
