Class Actions Filed Over Glucosamine Products

A latest wave of class action lawsuits have been filed accusing retailers and distributors of supplements containing glucosamine-chondroitin. These lawsuits allege that consumers purchase these supplements afer being exposed to promotional literature touting the product’s ability to shield damaged cartilage, but in fact experienced no health benefits. According to recent allegations, various studies have found that glucosamine does nothing to assist in protecting your damaged cartilage. Plaintiffs’ attorneys further maintain that no scientific medical study has shown that glucosamine-chondroitin has a structure-modifying effect that will regenerate cartilage that has broken down or worn away. If you purchased a supplement containing glucosamine-chondroitin, you may be allegible to participate in a class action lawsuit.
