Glucosamine and Chondroitin Supplements

If you have arthritis, you may be interested in taking a glucosamine and chondroitin supplement. This product contains an amino sugar (glucosamine) and a molecule (chondroitin) naturally found in the human body. It is believed to work for arthritis in several ways, such as by decreasing inflammation.
 
Although this dietary supplement is probably safe for most people, some people may be more likely to experience problems, so talk to your healthcare provider before taking it if you have diabetes, asthma, or prostate cancer. Nausea, heartburn, and diarrhea are some of the most common side effects.
