Supplements for Knee Pain

October 9, 2010

Joint deterioration is a major concern as we grow older. While exercise and a healthy diet can help prolong their health, its often necessary to take supplements for knee pain and other joint problems. With the surfeit of products now being peddled online and in retail outlets, it can be difficult to obtain objective information on which supplements are the best. Here are some recommendations from Jonathon Cluett, M.D., of About.com:

~Glucosamine: an amino acid found naturally in the body. It may promote the creation of new cartilage.

~Chondroitin: often used in conjunction with glucosamine, it helps to build and preserve cartilage.

~MSM: also known as methylsulfonylmethane, it is believed to promote healthy ligaments.
