Chondroitin is a nutritional supplement that is often used in combination with glucosamine and msm as a nutritional treatment for arthritis and inflammatory conditions.

Is taking supplements such as omga-3, fish oil, glucosamine and vitamin C sufficient enough to ease the pain of rheumatoid arthritis?
Absolutely not!: The omega-3s (flax seed oil and fish oil) will help ra. Vitamin c over the mdr has no benefit. Results are mixed with glucosamine. Anti-oxidants such as green tea extraqct, grapeseed extract may also help, but if you truly have ra, you will sustainm progressive joint damage with time, if you are not taking remitting agents! see someone in rheumatology! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No best brand: There is not one brand of glucosamine that has been shown to be more effective. Glucosamine has not been shown to rebuild cartilage in any quality scientific study. It may relieve arthritis patients in some patients. Doses used that seemed to help were 1500mg daily. If no change after a month it likely won't help so stop and save that money. ...Read more
Is there any good evidence for taking nutritonal supplements of collagen hydrolysate for joint pain ?
Not great evidence: There is only moderate evidence by our academy that recommends 1500mg glucosamine with 1200mg chondroitin taken twice daily that may help with joint pain. I would take it for one month to see if you feel it is efficacious. If you feel it's helping, keep taking it. If you feel it doesn't help you, stop taking it because its just a waste of your money. I'm not aware of any other dietary supplements. ...Read more
Are there any interactions between nutritional supplements like a good multivitamin, fish oils, calcium/magnesium, or joint support like glucosamine?
Of course, complex &: controls are internal but only partially understood. As Soul?Mind?Brain?Body creatures, not invented by MDs, issues only partially understood. Thus people promote importance of simple external things they can sell, often without consideration of individual situation or any relevant double-blind, prospective placebo controlled clinical trial data. Why? Because trials are expensive & might backfire? ...Read more
Which is better for joints: piascledine 300 or glucosamine?
or taking both of them will give me a good result? :)
Glucosoamine possibl: All studies of glucosamine sulfate (natural form in our bodies) for the last 15 years have had a maximum dose of 1500 mg/day. The national Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates it "Likely Effective" for osteoarthritis, NO ONE has studied higher doses. I have seen success at 2 to 3 gm/day by 30days.Studies on athletes with knee injuries found no decrease in pain but increase in mobility. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is taking joint supplements containing glucosamine, MSM, chondroitin harmful or has any side effects in any way, especially on the kidney or liver?
No way to tell : Unfortunately, dietary supplements are regulated as foods (as opposed to drugs). As such, they are not required to undergo the same testing (or prove their claims to be true). Also, since no third party testing of their product is required - the ingredients listed don't even have to match what is in the bottle. Wish I had a better answer ... Good luck! ...Read more

Do not use: Avoid it. It has no value in jia. ...Read more
Nothing that's: Hugely beneficial. Probably the most studied and controversial are glucosamine and chondroitin. Unfortunately, it seems like overall, the benefit of these supplements in osteoarthritis management appears marginal. They may help with pain for some and at least have limited risk profiles(as long as you aren't shellfish allergic). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
