    Dear Sirs,
    I understand that for commercial reasons you pretend to ignore that the Dona glucosamine sulfate supplement is so popular because it is the original glucosamine formulation approved as a prescription product in Europe and elsewhere. This is thanks to the pivotal, high-quality clinical trials performed with it by my group and by several independent scientists: unfortunately, no other glucosamine preparation has been shown effective in high-quality clinical trials and glucosamine hydrochloride was not effective in the US GAIT trial.
    I also understand that for commercial reasons you will not publish this clarification.
    Best regards

    I tried it and liked it – worth every penny!
    I asked my son for some stuff to lubricate my joints and, as a pre-med summa cum laude with distinction graduate from the University of Illinois – Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO and a fellowship from the University of Wisconsin (Muskoskelital Radiology) and DONA was recommended because it works with efficient expediency for me and countless others.

    You can beg to differ that it does not work for me and volumnous others all you want. Hopefully it will give others the impetus to try it. My son is a radiologist at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.

    I don’t know what this review is talking about. I have been taking this product for years and I have nothing but good things to say about it.
