Is Glucosamine a hoax?

First off, Active Again is not glucosamine.

Glucosamine is a sugar protein molecule, as the name implies- glucos (sugar) amine (protein)
Whereas Active Again is made using natural oils.

Based on clinical trial results, we strongly believe that Active Again is far more effective.
Please see the British Medical Journal meta-analysis of glucosamine and chondroitin clinical trials below, that show they are no better than placebo.

These results make us question:
If glucosamine and chondroitin are no better than placebo, then why are they so popular?

We continually hear or read that many joint health products “Contain Clinically Proven Ingredients”. These are very misleading words. First, it often means that the actual product was never even tested. Some of the ingredients may have been tested, however not the finished product itself. Second, the words “clinically proven” in this case are also often misleading. Most would assume the advertisers mean the product was proven effective. In reality, in the case of glucosamine and or chondroitin, the truth is that they were proven safe, not proven effective.

Published and or presented Active Again oil clinical trials have demonstrated outstanding results. Clinical trial results were published in leading peer-reviewed medical journals, such as The Journal of Rheumatology, The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research and The Journal of Periodontology.
