glucosamine cream - does it work?

Does it work? I can't find literature about its effectiveness, or reviews. I currently supplement with natural Carlson's fish oil with enhanced DHA and EPA (15 grams daily), megadose vitamin E, and megadose glucosamine+chondroitin+MSM daily for anti inflammatory effects for my joint and tendon problems. I am looking to treat trauma of the brachial tendon to treat pain during bicep workouts by using a glucosamine cream. I have heard anecdotally that the cream format increases bio-availability by a staggering amount and that the oral supplement is essentially a snake oil product. But I have also heard that there is no evidence to suggest the cream works any better. Thoughts?

I just tried VPX's Glucosa Cream. FYI it had significant palliative effects, within minutes after application ...

Hi,
So you are happy with the Glucosamine cream application.
I think you need to follow the prescription of the doctor as when to apply or you can go through the literature supplied with the cream pouch for further reference.
Keep me informed if you have any queries.
