Is it safe to take glucosamine plus chondroitin if you are under 18?

In brief: Safe, but why?

I guess it would be safe, but I don't see the need.
The studies have shown treatment benefit, but not preventive benefit. I wouldn't think someone under the age of 18 would have joint damage for which this would be helpful.

In brief: Why???

Why would you possibly want to do that? It has absolutely no value for an 18 year old.
