Natural Knee Supplements

March 2, 2010

There is a litany of prescription medications on the market today, many of which have the risk of unpleasant side effects. Thanks to advancements in medicine, however, there are natural supplements that can be taken for many ailments that have comparable effects to their prescription counterparts. For those suffering for osteoarthritis, particularly in the knee, glucosamine has been proven to provide relief.

Glucosamine is found naturally in cartilage, and research shows that when taken as a supplement, glucosamine can strengthen cartilage and aid in synthesis of glycosaminoglycan. Although glucosamine has been proven to promote knee health, it is typically used most effectively with chondroitin sulfate.
