Nutritional Supplements

The most commonly used dietary supplements for arthritis are fish oil, glucosamine and turmeric. The basic science behind these supplements are their anti-inflammatory and metabolic properties on cartilage. Numerous studies have been published regarding these supplements and the general consensus is that they have a positive effect on pain and function. Associated costs of nutritional supplements are low and the chance of harmful/adverse effects are small. For these reasons we recommend that patients try a combination of all three supplements.
