Study: Chondroitin Slows Progression, Relieves Symptoms of Knee Osteoarthritis
Brought to you from the NEEDS Wellness Team

Osteoarthritis is a common affliction involving damage to a joint (especially knees and hips) due to excessive wear and tear. This progressive condition usually involves cartilage degradation which permits more contact between the bones, causing inflammation and pain. According to a recent study, chondroitin may be a natural remedy that can improve cartilage loss and relieve joint pain.

A two-year study published in the February 2009 issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism supported the efficacy of using chondroitin to prevent cartilage loss, as compared to placebo. The study evaluated both the loss of joint space width, a means of measuring cartilage degradation, and joint pain. After two years, the group taking chondroitin had significantly less joint cartilage degradation than the placebo group. The chondroitin group also had greater reduction in joint pain as compared to placebo in the first year of the study.

NutriNeeds' Glucosamine Chondroitin is an excellent formula to support joint function and slow degradation. It contains glucosamine, another proven remedy to support and rebuild joint cartilage, and chondroitin, in therapeutic doses. It can be taken preventatively to slow damage caused by age and overuse and used to lessen the symptoms of osteoarthritis.
