    That's right on. 1500mg gluc and 1200-1500mg chon per day. If you want, you can take 2x that amount for the first 2-3 weeks.

    Some people don't get anything from it but I'm a believer in gluc/chon.

      Don't expect the results to be immediate..Sometimes it may take weeks or months depending on how quickly your body can absorb it to notice a difference. I would also recommend you consider throwing in some MSM as well. It will really address problems related to joint pain as well...

        thanks for the reply guys...ever since i've been 'off' these last 2 months my elbows and knees have been killing me..when i lift i feel like my knees and elbows are about to snap off, so i have to slow it down and i hate doing that for obvious reasons...

          pudge...just remember whether you are on or off, continue to give your body what it needs, ie, vitamins, minerals and any other herb specific supps and your body will perform miracles for you. I never get joint pain and I very, very rarely ever catch a cold!

                  Pudge, I’m in the same boat as you. My left elbow is hurting so much. I have to take some Alive before training. A good friend (tall and huge, you know who I’m talking about) of mine even takes shots of morphine before training. I think thats crazy.

                    Sounds to me like the definition of the word insanity!

                      I'd throw in 200 mg of ibuprofen a day as well.
