$12 for 90.

I dont know how they get Glucosamine from non-GMO veggies. I'd think if it were soy, it would say so.

Now is a trust-able brand. Good Amazon reviews on it.

I was going to try Glucosamine by itself while staying away from Asian farmed shell fish.

None of the shell fish containing brands tell you the source.

It was big in the 90's - for arthritis and often combined with Chondroitin.
Wasn't Chondroitin sourced from pig Cartlidge?

Glucosamine has been big since mid 80's, but it was always shell fish based. For its price, it didnt do much for me, but some swear by it.

Veggie Glucosamine I never seen before until tonight.

Chondroitin is supposedly less effective than Glucosamine. Combining the two just t costs more.

MSM is another combo with this that, alone, does nothing for me. Funny 'cause its related to the liquid DMSO.
