glucosamine sulfate for arthritis
We're getting lots of calls and faxes asking about glucosamine sulfate for arthritis. It's been in the news and on TV shows.
Glucosamine is naturally produced in the body. It's important for the repair and maintenance of cartilage.
It's been tried experimentally for osteoarthritis. Short-term studies show some improvement in symptoms...pain relief and improved articular movement...but there's no evidence of a long-term benefit.
