2 doctors agree

In brief: Neither

The position of the american academy of orthopedic surgeons on glucosamine and chondroitan sulfate that it has showed no statistically significant benefit in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee and they do not recommend using this product.

My orthopoedic associates have told me that there's no real data to support the regular use of the supplements glucosamine/chondroitin.
They recommend saving your money, and use Ibuprofen or Naproxen on an as needed basis. That's what i do. Good luck.
