Multi-Nutrient Supplement Shown to Relieve Joint Pain

A recent study found that a dietary supplement containing glucosamine sulfite, methylsufonlymethane, hyaluronic acid and several botanical extracts was effective in treating joint pain, safe to use, and had no adverse side effects.

Participants in the study included 100 people between the ages of 50 and 75 who had experienced more than three months of joint pain. They were assigned to take either the supplement or a placebo three times daily over the course of eight weeks.

The researchers measured joint pain severity, stiffness, joint function, systemic inflammation, and physical function before the study and after the study. At the conclusion of the study, the supplement group had a 37% reduction in joint pain severity compared to a 16% reduction in the placebo group.

For the 74% of participants suffering from knee pain, physical function improved by 39% in the supplement group and by only 14% in the placebo group. Additionally, the supplement group had a 30% reduction in stiffness compared to a 12% reduction in the placebo group.

The ingredients in joint pain supplement used in the study were glucosamine sulfite, methylsufonlymethane, white willow bark extract, ginger root concentrate, hyaluronic acid, turmeric root extract, boswella serrate extract and cayenne.

Researchers from Appalachian State University conducted the study. It was published online ahead of print on November 25, 2013, in Nutrition Journal.
