Question by imsoverygood: What would cause and allergic reaction to Glucosamine Condroitin? Dye free?
I received a sample of move free. I had an allergic reaction to it (hives). My pharmacists suggested it might be the dye they use in the casule and suggested a dye free sample so I tried it. The rash was worse.
I am not allergic to anything I know of. I was trying it because my joints have been bothering me and Ithought it might help.

You might be allergic to the glucosamine itself, which is usually made from the shells of shrimp or other shellfish, or to the chondroitin, which is made from pig, cow, or shark cartilage.
An allergy to sulfur is unlikely. Sulfur is found in almost all protein-containing foods, such as eggs and beans.
