I have taken glucosamin on a daily basis at the maxium dosage recommended by a local orthopedic.
It has helped me through the severe gut pain by allowing me to reduce the amount of pain killers I took. Also, helped relieve some of the intense joint pain caused by too fast a prednisone taper. Don't ask me why I stopped taking it...just got tired of all the pills. I found it helpful, however, some people do not. I had not heard about the relationship of proteins and mucus in this particular therapy, however, it makes common sense to me!
