Wellness Innovations Cosamin DS Review

Manufacturer’s Claim

Cosamin DS might be what you need to help relieve the pain in your joints. The formula of this supplement works by blocking the enzymes that eat away at cartilage over time. By doing this, the cartilage stays sturdy, and the joint pain is relieved. Cosamin DS has been around for years, and likely for a good reason. Read our review below to see if Cosamin DS is the joint pain alleviating supplement you should use.



  • Vitamin C (as Manganese Ascorbate) – 6 mg
  • Manganese (as Manganese Ascorbate) – 1 mg
  • Glucosamine HCI – 1.5 g
  • Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate – 1.2 g

Other Ingredients:

  • Gelatin
  • Contains less than 2% of Magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide (capsule color), red 3 and blue 1.

The ingredients Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate together are what the Cosamin DS manufacturers claim to be the main helpful ingredient in their product. This combination of elements work together to keep the cartilage of the joint from disintegrating. The Glucosamine is derived from crab and shrimp.


One serving of Cosamin DS is three tablets. It is suggested that one take three tablets daily until they have stabilized their discomfort. After that, one may decrease the amount of tablets they take as long as they are still feeling the relief. One can take all the tablets in one sitting, or spread it out throughout the day according to your meals.


A single bottle of Cosamin DS containing 108 capsules and can be purchased online for $46.95, not including shipping and handling.

The Cosamin DS website offers a $3.00 coupon that can be printed and used in the stores where Cosamin DS can be purchased.

There are many nationwide stores that stock this product, so it should not be hard to find. Many of these chains also have websites and sell Cosamin DS through their website.

Possible Side Effects

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation,
  • Stomach pain
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Hair loss
  • Puffy eyelids


The Nutramax website, where you can buy this product from through the manufacturer, is not clear about what can be returned and refunded. They state that if it is within 10 days of purchase, with proof of purchase, and confirmation from a customer service representative that it qualifies as a return, they will accept it. It will then have to be evaluated once they receive the shipment. If it is over 10 days, but under 30 days, they will accept returns for evaluation, but they do not offer to help with shipping and handling costs.

The best thing to do in that situation is call the customer service line and see what they can do to help.

Wellness Innovations Cosamin DS Review – The Bottom Line

The active ingredient Glucosamine, which is contained in Cosamin DS, has been known to help the body rebuild cartilage, which can help those suffering from joint pain. Those suffering from such pain can easily find Cosamin DS at a drugstore nearby, or online, for it is widely distributed.

The return policy/guarantee of their product is unclear, which raises the question of how much they stand behind their product. Also, this product contains fish elements, which is not suitable for many people. The website of Cosamin DS claims to be a reliable supplement using the point that they have been around for over 20 years as proof. That is not necessarily a good enough reason to continue making a product. Before using Cosamin DS for joint relief, it would be best to see if there are other options.
