The Latest on Glucosamine and Chondroitin

The New York Times has an article that refers to a new study put out by the New England Journal of Medicine in regards to Glucosamine and Chondroitin when used for stopping arthritis pain.

I know many of us take these supplements daily and are convinced it does something for us. I've converted the article into a pdf so it will be easier to access. Click here to read it.

I'll probably continue to take it. The type I take has chondroitin sulfate which is different than the chondroitin hydrochloride used in the study. The article mentions that some industry studies have found the sulfate form more effective.
