Probably.
The effect on joints has not been demonstrated, however, a lot of old folks I know use these long term and they felt more mobile after the first two months of taking them.
Perhaps a placebo effect, but if you think that glucosamine and chondroitin are present in joints, it would make sense to think that when there is more the body may use them to repair the everyday wear and tear.
I let you know if my chronic back pain improves in a couple of months.
If i have a placebo effects and no more pain I will be happy to spend £7.96 every 3 months for life!:-D

My doctor told me that there is evidence that they work for the joints but really only the knees!
Don't ask me why only knees
Worth it just for that if you have bad knees

After recent surgery on one of my knees, the surgeon suggested that a daily dose of 1500 mg of Glucosamine might help prevent further arthritis. However, it does not "cure" areas already affected by arthritis.
He said that the way to find out whether it is working, is to take it regularly for two months, then stop - to see if the aches and pains recur.
