Body glucosamine can be supplemented or boosted by just consuming glucosamine pills orally. Many independent clinical trials have shown that orally consumed Glucosamine and Chondroitin do not work.

This is because Glucosamine is easily broken down by the gastric enzymes which are present in the saliva, the stomach and the liver, resulting in only a minute quantity having the chance to be absorbed into your body.
Eating certain food can increase glucosamine level in your body There is no food sources of glucosamine. Glucosamine is produced naturally in our body through natural biological process. And the body uses glucosamine to make the soft tissues around the joints.
You can get more Collagen by eating collagens and collagen is more beneficial than glucosamine. Collagen is a huge biological molecule made in the body from a group of naturally occurring proteins. Just as you cannot get more brains by eating brains, you cannot get collagens by eating collagens. Glucosamine is the building block for some of the proteins that make up the collagens.
Oral glucosamine is always safe Oral glucosamine is not always safe due to the acidic nature of glucosamine compounds. The acid may cause gastric toxicity, nausea, vomiting and constipation.
All glucosamine creams are effective Most glucosamine creams are not effective because they lack the technology to penetrate the skin. And most Glucosamine creams do not contain sufficient amount of Glucosamine, because high concentration of Glucosamine causes the cream to breakdown into layers of oil and water.
Calcium supplements can relief joint pains Calcium strengthens the bones but not the soft tissues like cartilage. Glucosamine helps to strengthen the soft tissues (e.g. cartilage & ligaments) around the bones in the same way that calcium helps to strengthen the bones.
Osteoporosis is the main cause of joint pains Osteoporosis is due to "weak bones" while Osteoarthritis is due to "worn out" soft tissues around the joints.

Osteoporosis may lead to fracture of the bones. In this case, patient feels the pain after bone fracture has occurred. But joint pains are the common symptoms of osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is caused by weak bones. Osteoarthritis is caused by the degeneration (worn out) of the soft tissues around the bones. This leads to pains mostly at the joints.
