Cosamin does not come with the offer of a customer satisfaction guarantee unless you purchase it from a third-party seller. Customer reviews are all very praising.
Cosamin is NSF-certified, which means it is completely safe for use. However, users are to beware that the formula contains fish products, which affects dietary restrictions and allergies. Although some positive reviews exist, though, it is still tough to bring yourself to trust this product given that there is no customer satisfaction guarantee available.
