In brief: Explanation

Glucosamine sulfate has one "active" ingredient-glucosamine.
Glucosamine chondroitin has two-glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate. There is much controversy over whether either does anything. Studies have focused on the knee joint where study guidelines are strict and exclude many not fitting them.Most rheumatologists think they Don,t work.
