This is because the most frequently available products contain glucosamine sulfate and accompanying salts.

Ultimate Glucosamine® has no accompanying salts and thus contains 100% pure N-acetyl-D-glucosamine.

Traumeel ® is an inflammation regulating product. The inflammation process is really a complex cascade of different steps. Traumeel does not just stop pain but it acts on the first stages of the inflammation cascade and thus optimizes the whole process towards recovery. Contrarily, NSAIDS block the cascade at one of its essential steps at the end which results masking the injury and pain. The blockade of this central pathway is also the reason for the common side effects of NSAIDs.
