Glucosamine Can Slow Osteoarthritis
19 November 2002
by Wyn Snow, Managing Editor

Supplementation with glucosamine sulfate over a three-year period can retard progression of osteoarthritis in the knee, according to new research from Charles University in Prague. The October issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine (162, 18:2113-23, 2002) reports on a randomized double blind study of 202 patients who took either placebo or 1500 mg/day of glucosamine sulfate.

After three years, those patients taking glucosamine showed no narrowing of the space between bones in the joint, whereas the knee joints of those taking placebo had narrowed an average of 0.19 mm.
