New study shows glucosamine and chondroitin have no effect

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A new study published in the British Medical Journal shows two popular health supplements have no beneficial effects on osteoarthritis.

A study of glucosamine and chondroitin involving 10 trials and nearly 4,000 subjects showed no beneficial effects for either supplement in combination or separately.

The study also showed there was no harm in taking the supplements, yet neither offers any relief from or improvements to the symptoms and conditions associated with arthritis.
