Were you looking for information about Glucosamine? Glucosmine is a common misspelling of glucosamine.
 
Glucosamine is a dietary supplement most often taken as an arthritis treatment. Although early studies showed the supplement to have anti-arthritis properties, it is no longer entirely clear whether it is indeed effective for treating arthritis. Some people may be more likely to experience problems due to supplements, so you should talk with your healthcare provider before taking any glucosamine products if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, high cholesterol, or any allergies.
