Question: What is the best age to start take joint supplements, such as HA or Cosamin ASU? Are there any negative effects to taking it in your 40s or early 50s?

Brief Answer:
No evidence to support the use of supplements

Detailed Answer:
Hi thanks for your question.

There is no orthodox scientific evidence that any of the supplements that you describe have any positive effects of the musculoskeletal system including your bone health.

I hope this answers your question.

Best wishes
