Supplements for Arthritis Joint Pain
(See supplements below text)

The word "arthritis" is an umbrella term that describes over 100 separate diseases that damage the joints. The most common type is osteoarthritis, a condition caused by wear and tear on the cartilage within the joints.

Rheumatoid arthritis, the second most common type, is an inflammatory autoimmune disorder. Joint supplements may help ease arthritis symptoms. Use them under the supervision of a qualified health care professional.

Many people with arthritis -- especially osteoarthritis -- use supplements in their diet to ease the pain of arthritis. Glucosamine and chondroitin are the most well-known and best-tested. Methyl sulfonylmethane (MSM) is another supplement used to ease the pain of arthritis, but it has not been through as much rigorous scientific testing.

Essential Fatty Acids

Both omega-3 fatty acids and an omega-6 fatty acid known as GLA or gamma-linolenic acid show promise in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. People who eat large amounts of foods abundant in omega-3 fatty acids have lower rates of inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, according to the Center. Omega-3 fatty acids are plentiful in fish, but non-fish eaters can get omega-3s by taking fish oil supplements. GLA may help alleviate rheumatoid arthritis symptoms including pain, stiffness, and tenderness. However, the use of these supplements is not an adequate substitute for conventional medical advice and treatment.

Glucosamine and Chondroitin

Glucosamine and chondroitin are often combined into a single supplement for arthritis. Both are substances that are found naturally in the human body. The 2006 Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial, a large study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, concluded that glucosamine and chondroitin were no better than an inactive placebo in relieving pain or slowing down the deterioration of cartilage in the knee in most participants. However, a small group of study participants with moderate-to-severe pain experienced significant pain relief with the glucosamine and chondroitin combination. Ask a qualified health care practitioner if this supplement is right for you.

What Are Glucosamine and Chondroitin?

Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are components of normal cartilage. In the body, they are the building blocks for cartilage and appear to stimulate the body to make more cartilage.

Who Should Not Take These Arthritis Supplements?

People with diabetes should use caution when taking glucosamine because it may raise blood sugar. People taking blood-thinning medication (anticoagulants) should check with their doctors before taking glucosamine and chondroitin.

These arthritis supplements may also have a blood-thinning effect so people taking these supplements in addition to an anticoagulant may have to have their blood tested more often. People who are allergic to shellfish also should consult their doctors before using glucosamine and chondroitin. Glucosamine is extracted from a substance in shellfish.

The effects of these supplements on a growing child or developing baby are not yet known. For that reason, glucosamine and chondroitin are not recommended for children, women who are pregnant and women who could become pregnant.
