In brief: Perhaps ...

Glucosamine may help but it doesn't help as much as keeping your weight within a normal range and walking (as tolerated due to knee pain).
Most supplements are completely unproven remedies.

In brief: None

Unfortunately, there are no supplements that have been proven to help prevent arthritis.
The best preventative treatment is weight loss and exercise.
