Mr. Bergman,
Thank you for your query.
These supplements have glucosamine and chondroitin as the touted ingredient for cartilage regeneration. There have been a number of studies that have shown this is not the case. In other words these two ingredients do not work any better at regenerating cartilage than wishing. These supplements are expensive and useless, don't waste your money.

If you have further questions, please feel free to ask.

You should always consult with your physician for the proper diagnosis and treatment.
