Pop a pill?

Runner's World (UK) - - BODY+MIND -

Many peo­ple swear by glu­cosamine sup­ple­ments, but study re­sults are mixed. For a 2015 study pub­lished in the An­nals of the Rheumatic Dis­eases, re­searchers gave 605 sub­jects with knee pain ei­ther glu­cosamine­chon­droitin or a placebo. After two years, both groups re­ported re­duc­tions in knee pain in equal lev­els – the glu­cosamine had worked no bet­ter than a sugar pill. A few stud­ies have found that glu­cosamine could pos­si­bly slow arthritic changes.
