One common question: Can persons allergic to sulfa drugs or sulfite take glucosamine? Michael Murray, ND responds: "When people say they are allergic to sulphur, what they really mean is they are allergic to the so-called sulfa drugs or sulfite-containing food additives. It is impossible to be allergic to sulphur because sulphur is an essential mineral. The sulfate form of sulphur is present in relatively high concentrations in human blood. In short, glucosamine sulfate is extremely well-tolerated, and no allergic reactions have been reported."
