Why are glucosamine Supplements Under Investigation?
Attorneys suspect that these products may be mislabeled. Specifically, they believe that what companies are selling as glucosamine sulfate is actually glucosamine hydrochloride, a cheaper and inferior product. In fact, test results from independent labs indicate some of these manufacturers' supplements contain absolutely no glucosamine sulfate at all.
Glucosamine Sulfate vs. Glucosamine Hydrochloride: What’s the Difference?
Glucosamine hydrochloride is cheaper to produce and has a different molecular structure than its similar chemical counterpart. Secondly, studies have shown that almost all positive health effects that glucosamine can have on joint health comes from glucosamine sulfate, and not glucosamine hydrochloride.
How can a Class Action Lawsuit Help?
With manufacturers allegedly labeling products that are really glucosamine hydrochloride as glucosamine sulfate, consumers are getting ripped off and paying for a product that isn’t what it claims to be. A class action lawsuit can help these individuals get their money back for the supplements they had purchased. A class action lawsuit could also help hold these companies accountable and make sure proper labels are used in the future.
If you purchased a glucosamine supplement, contact us and let us know which product you bought. After you get in touch, an attorney may follow up with you. They can explain how you may be able to participate in a potential class action lawsuit to get your money back.
