Other supplements: Consider other supplements that are natural anti-inflammatories. Ginger, green tea, turmeric, rosemary and omega-3-fatty acids are some examples. A popular brand name containing many of these supplements is zyflamend. Some also recommend msm, although there is little scientific evidence of a benefit with osteoarthritis.
