Cosamin DS Overall Review: 3 out of 5.

Cosamin DS is a dietary supplement for those who suffer from joint pain. It claims to work better than many other formulas, as well as last longer. They say that there should be no dramatic side effects or medicinal interactions while using their product.

Other things that this product claim is that it is the only brand that has been clinically proven in controlled trials in the United States to help with joint pain. They say that laboratory tests have shown that it can protect the cells of cartilage from breaking down.

Their two main ingredients, as with plenty of other formulas for joint pain, are glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate.  When these two ingredients work together, it has been said that they can reverse the breakdown of cartilage. Separately, glucosamine is actually an amino sugar that is needed when connective tissues are forming – as well as providing support for healthy cartilage.  It is what makes up proteoglycans that form the tissues that protect the joints. Proteoglycans are molecules of protein that have sponge-like qualities to retain water that will give connective tissues cushioning effects and adequate elasticity.

Chondroitin sulfate, surprising to some, is a derivative of chondroitin which is found in human tissues, cartilage, and bones. The surprising part is that chondroitin sulfate is actually made from cow throats or products from pork. What is interesting is that even though it is from other animals, it is widely accepted that taking supplements of chondroitin sulfate can reduce the pain associated with arthritis; some even suggest that it can slow down osteoarthritis’s progression.

Users are directed to take one to two pills each day after the initial 1 to 2 months.  During the initial 1 to 2 months, it is suggested that users take three pills throughout the day, preferably with food and with full glasses of water.
