Knee Osteoarthritis Supplement Treatment Better Than Drug

From eMaxHealth.com

In this latest study, investigators compared the effectiveness of celecoxib with a natural supplement, chondroitin sulfate, in 194 individuals with knee osteoarthritis characterized by inflammation and moderate pain. The multicenter, randomized, double-blind, controlled, comparative study took place over a two-year period.

During that time, the participants took either 1,200 mg per day of chondroitin sulfate or 200 mg of celecoxib. Three magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans were performed during the study as well.  At the end of the intervention period, here’s what the researchers found:

• Progression of knee osteoarthritis was slower among patients who took chondroitin sulfate, based on MRI results

• Both chondroitin and celecoxib were equally effective (about 50%) in improving pain, function, stiffness, and joint swelling
