Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate Slow Deterioration in Knee Arthritis

Glucosamine (400 milligrams per day) and chondroitin sulfate (500 milligrams per day; GC) decreases knee joint pain and prevents joint deterioration linked to osteoarthritis— according to a six-year long study led by Jean-Pierre Raynauld from the Montreal Hospital Research Center in Montreal, Canada. GC effectively delayed the progression of the disease, while improving functional capacity and decreasing pain. GC reduced cartilage loss and was effective for long-term management of arthritis progress. Nearly 1,600 subjects participated, but the study did not include a control group.
