Whats the difference between glucosamine sulfate and n-acetyl glucosamine?

Absorption.: The n-acetyl variant is more quickly absorbed. I would not pay the higher cost, though, since the sulfate variant is also well absorbed, albeit not as quickly. Also, glcnac is the monomeric unit of the polymer chitin, which forms the outer coverings of insects and crustaceans. It is the main component of the cell walls of fungi, therefore, sourced difference. ...Read more

Safe to take lorazepam w/ nature made magnesium supplement(mag ox, cellulose gel, croscarmellose sodium, mag stearate, silicon dioxide, stearic acid)?

Safe but not best Mg: It is totally safe but magnesium oxide is a very poorly-absorbed form of magnesium- it may work as a laxative but won't raise your magnesium levels! you would be far better off taking magnesium glycinate, taurate or citrate! see http://drcarolyndean.Com/magnesium_miracle/. ...Read more

Can glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate relieve symptoms of osteoarthritis?

Variable: Some people report considerable relief with this combination, others report no help at all. Interestingly, in dogs, relief is much more common. The only way to find out is to try it for 3 months as it may take that long. Consider adding msm to the regimen as that acts as an anti-inflamatory and can also help. As always, check with your primary care physician first. ...Read more

Is sodium coco sulfate safer than sodium lauryl sulfate?

Not sure: Not sure about all those ingredients in our shampoos, conditioners, soaps, and creams. I presume they all end up in our waters when we shower. The site, http://chemicaloftheday.Squarespace.Com/qa/2011/9/26/sodium-coco-sulfate.Html, has a well-written answer. If the answer is correct, it sounds like the 2 chemicals are similar and equally good or equally bad, depending on one's view. ...Read more

An article says, jarrow n acetyl glucosamine 750mg, jarrow glucosamine hci mega 1000mg, jarrow niainamide cure fructose malabsorption. Is it possible

An article says, jarrow n acetyl glucosamine 750mg, jarrow glucosamine hci mega 1000mg, jarrow niainamide cure fructose malabsorption. Is it possible

Might help, not cure: Fructose malabsorption may be caused by deficiency of glut5 (http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/glut5). I found a report of someone having relief taking the 1st 2 supps you mention (http://glutenfreesoyfree.Wordpress.Com/2012/03/05/potential-cure-for-fructose-malabsorption/) they said these heal cells that produce glut5. There's no research on this but it seems possible. However, on stopping it recurred. ...Read more
