MicroLactin Double Strength
I read all the material in Swanson's catalog and on their website about how good MicroLactin is, and how it has been proven to be 60% more effective than Glucosamine in controlled tests. However, nothing was said about how MicroLactin compares to a good, potent combination formula of Glucosamine, Chondroitin, & MSM. I take that combination in the form of Swanson's excellent liquid formula, which is the best I have found anywhere, AND as usual with Swanson, the best priced formula of its type.
After reading the MicroLactin fluff pieces, I thought it sounded like it was worth a try. So I substituted MicroLactin for my much-liked and appreciated Gluc., Chond., & MSM liquid product. I was not as pleased. Then I realized that the claims were that MicroLactin has been shown to be 60% more effective than Glucosamine. Just Glucosamine. Nothing was said / written about comparative effectiveness with respect to a good Gluc., Chond., & MSM Formula, as Swanson's liquid formula is.
I didn't need to add MicroLactin to my daily dose of liquid Gluc., Chond., & MSM, because my results were just fine with that product on its own. Also, I already take more than enough 'pills' daily, so I didn't want to just add more big tablets to my daily supplement regimen just because MicroLactin is a good product, which I'm sure it is. Frankly, I should have paid more attention to the 60% more effective than Glucosamine claim when I first read it.
Therefore, I cannot recommend MicroLactin. It might be an effective addition to a less good, less complete / potent formula than I already take. Also, it is bound to be better than taking nothing - - - no joint formula(s) at all. So it boils down to an individual's own personal scenario.

We wouldn't be without it!!
Both my husband and I take this very effective supplement.
We have recommended it to many friends who have had great results with increased joint mobility.

Our favorite supplement
My wife and I have tried many other joint supplements with little to no success.
We recommend this product highly and absolutely
never want to run out.

Wish this came in a Capsule because these are very large pills that are hard to swallow and I can swallow a lot of pills at one time. Also they are hard to digest

Best Purchase Ever
I love this product, I am so glad I can buy it from Swanson, I used to pay more for it at another source. It sure seems to help me in so many ways without any side effects. Thanks Annie

I have used MicroLactin Double Strength now for over 10 years. I added it to my daily supplements and feel fantastic. My back and legs are in better shape than 12 years ago. I feel more fluid in the motion of my neck and lower back. I tell everyone to try it!

Good Results So Far
My sister-in- law got me onto this. I have taken it a month now with good results. My wife is also taking it for joint strength. I will continue to take it and recommend it to other.

I have used this product in the past, with good results. On this particular occasion, I have not had the same beneficial results. Can't tell for certain if the problem is a different underlying issue or not.

I absolutely LOVE this STUFF. It has done me much better than the glucosamine and at a lower price. I have already recommended it to others who were having some joint issues, and it helped them as well.

I wanted to add a joint support product to my supplements since I run at least 25 miles a week. I have noticed more comfort in my knees while taking this supplement. I am very pleased with the results.

I added Swanson Ultra Microlactin to my daily joint supplements three years ago and it really has helped, (I also take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, hyaluronic acid and celadrin). I am approaching my mid 50s and my joints are in great shape. Thanks Swanson!

This stuff works
I tried Glucosamine but the effect seemed to wear off with time. Microlactin's benefits seem to last, even if I stop taking it for a while.

1st unfavorable Swanson product, for me
Swanson's products are my favorites except MicroLactin SWU241. This one exception did not dissolve and was found floating after a b.m. I thought it might be just me, but my wife experienced the same result. I certainly will continue buying many of your other fine products.

I replaced my glucosamine 6 months ago
I replaced my Glucosamine, Condroitin & MSM tabs over six months ago and have found that the hard times of the New England winter has had no bad effects on my knees and hips the way they used to. MicroLactin is part of my daily maintenance from now on. I think it even helped my golf game a little!
