In brief: Glucosamine
Glucosamine and chondroitin, two components of cartilage, are commonly used as supplements to help with bone and joint health.
Although it has received a lot of popular acclaim, there has been little rigorous testing to see if it is effective. At best, it seems to be not harmful and might be helpful. Webmd has a pretty good article on the topic. http://tinyurl.com/htujoint.
