This is quite good, but not was effective as Cosamin DS (Nutramax). And too many capsules to take per day.

just as advertised
this has made me very happy. this Swanson product has done what it said it would! I have recommended it to sooo many people. It is reasonably priced, effective, and easy to get. The only downfall, is that you have to take 2 large capsules, but the results far outweigh that little problem. I am 100% satisfied. thank you.

YAAAY!!! IT'S NOT MADE FROM SHELLFISH!!!
For years I have really needed to take something for my joint health. People kept telling me that I should try glucosamine, but I didn't dare, because it's made from shellfish, which I am DEATHLY ALLERGIC to. I was actually feeling sorry for myself, because it was like I had a double whammy... I seriously NEEDED something for my joint health, but was extremely ALLERGIC to the solution!
Somebody upstairs must have taken pity on poor pitiful me, because now there is MicroLactin, NOT made from shellfish, and possibly even more beneficial for overall joint health, than glucosamine. I've been taking this twice daily for a little over a month now. Its too early for me to say whether this is helping, although it does SEEM to be... meanwhile, I'm going to keep taking it. I'm just so grateful that I CAN!

Used it to no effect
When I bougth the product I noticed someone comented the the pills did not digest well so I ground them in a mortar and drank that with water.
I took 3 grams a day until they were gone (I weigh 185 LBS).
I take Glucosamine already so perhaps my condition is already as improved as it's going to be.

Comparable to glucosamine
This product is a "must have" for me. I believe its effectiveness is comparable to glucosamine. If I increased my intake I would probably notice even better results. I really like the fact that there is no risk of developing a shellfish allergy and also that there are no preservatives/fillers listed in the ingredients.

I've never been able to feel that I got any good noticeable result from any supplement before, but about a week into using microlactin at the loading dose I noticed that my discomfort was not as noticeable. The capsules are giant, drink lots of water with them.
