Most Common Name: Joint supplements Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM
Also Known As (other names): Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM

Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM are combined to address joint problems particularly in the case of worn joints where arthritic symptoms are present. Glucosamine and Chondroitin is used extensively in veterinary medicine for treatment of degenerative joint diseases.

Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM are all naturally found in the human body. Glucosamine and Chondroitin are sulfate supplements used to slow the progression of osteoarthritis and MSM is included to help with control of the pain associated with osteoarthritis.

A recent study conducted on over 1,000 people suffering from osteoarthritis has concluded that Glucosamine Hydrochloride and Chondroitin Sulfate has no better effect than a placebo. There was some evidence that it may help in very extreme cases but this requires further investigation to be confirmed. There is also a possibility that Glucosamine Sulfate may give differing results but it appears that this is unlikely.

The current thinking is that, although there is some evidence that these substances may be beneficial in the joints, both substances are broken down in the digestive process and the little that manages to get into the blood stream is filtered out by the liver and other organs before it can reach the arthritic sites to ease pain and discomfort.

Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM have also been combined with SAMe.
