Dietary Supplements for Osteoarthritis Pain

Many people also take the dietary supplements glucosamine and chondroitin for osteoarthritis relief, but it's unclear how effective these supplements are at easing pain. Research indicates that the supplements may help some people with moderate to severe pain. However, the supplements also pose little risk; the most common side effect is a mild upset stomach. So people with osteoarthritis often give them a try.
