NPS MedicineWise has published a guide to glucosamine taken for osteoarthritis. The publication follows a recent study regarding the use of glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate in combination, looking at their effect on joint space narrowing in knees of osteoarthritis sufferers, which indicated that daily doses of the combination showed a decrease of joint space narrowing.
(Glucosamine & Chondroitin Benefical for Knee Osteoarthritis, iTherapeutics article 21 February 2014).
NPS MedicineWise said some studies had shown that it could protect the cartilage in joints, while others had shown no significant benefit. The guide includes the best way to take glucosamine, side effects and other ways to help osteoarthritis.
