Simplest way to phrase the interaction of supplemental glucosamine on knee/hip osteoarthritis is:
"We're pretty damn sure it does something, we're not so sure on how much it does; regardless of how much it does, taking glucosamine for a longer period of time and using sulfate is better than short periods of time and taking hydrochloride"
It is a way to phrase the consistently present statistical significance, but seemingly unreliable and possibly industry influenced clinical significance.
Glucosamine is better than nothing, but it by itself probably isn't going to be magically effective for reducing osteoarthritic symptoms. It would need to be paired with other protective factors (exercise, a low inflammatory diet, perhaps other supplements, etc.)

If you increase a car's efficiency from 40mpg to 42mpg, you can accurately say that its efficiency has improved. But is it really notable?
That is the crux of glucosamine - it helps with osteoarthritis, but not by much. So if you go in knowing that, you should be okay.

I do not take Vitamin E (No specific reason. I am just not blown away by studies on that vitamin)

Examine.com summarizes dose information:

The RDA (need to avoid deficiency for 97% of a population) for vitamin E is 15mg (or 22.5 IU) daily for both males and females above the age of 14.[1] This requirement goes to 19mg (28.4 IU) in lactating individuals. The TUL (Tolerable Upper Intake) levels are 1,000mg (1,500IU) for both male and female adults and 800mg (1,200IU) for those between the ages of 14-18. No changes in the TUL occur for pregnancy or lactation.[1]
It should be noted that some studies note side effects in the ranges of 400-800IU daily, and that consuming below the TUL may not be indicative of safety.

What about pesticides on fruits and vegetables? I would really like to streamline my diet to add more of each. However, I'm concerned about ingesting larger amounts of pesticides while doing so. Are organics the way to or even necessary?
