Glucosamine Overview

Glucosamine (C6H13NO5) is an amino sugar and a prominent precursor in the biochemical synthesis of glycosylated proteins and lipids. Glucosamine is part of the structure of the polysaccharides, chitosan, and chitin.

Artridol from Mexico.

I take one about every week, can I safely increase the frequency? It seems to be less effective fthan when I started using it. ## Artridol contains the active ingredient Glucosamine, which is a supplement claimed to help with joint health. As such, it is not a medication and is not actually proven to help with anything. That said, most of these supplements are taken daily, rather than weekly. So, if it was helping you, there is no reason you cannot take it more often. Just don't overdo it, because everything can be dangerous if you take too much. Are there any questions or comments? ## I need artridol 250 mg. How i can buy it? ## Does artridol worsen osteoporrosis, my doctor here in Cancun say's it does ## this is incorrect. it contains betamethasone, indomethacin and methacarbo...

Large oblong purple pill

The pill is cut in half so the only marking I can find is 00 or 000 on it, which is probably the last few digits of the id number. It's huge like the size of a glucosamine. Wish I had more info to provide. I'm thinking it may be something for arthritis pain (which I have).

plain white oblong pill no imprint

I just happened to buy a bottle of cheap vitamins. Glucosamine to be exact. It is an oblong pill with no markings or scoring. Hope this helps. ## Hi how big is it? Can you measure it please, Thank you ## Hello Nick, Thank you for sharing the information with the community. Just for your information vitamins and supplements do not have to be marked with an imprint like controlled medications do and thus there are bound to be many brands and types of supplements and vitamins that are white oblong pills with no imprint. In fact I have seen certain brands that use one color and shape for all of their vitamins and I can remember myself thinking, but how do they know if they accidentally switched the pills? Once again, thank you for taking the time out of your day to share this information.
