Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/22/2015 -- Natural supplements are extremely popular right now. As a matter of fact, many individuals who are suffering from a wide variety of conditions are relying on some form of natural alternative. However, experts suggest that consumers should take precautions when choosing a supplement.
A study revealed that some arthritis supplements such as glucosamine could help, but many do not. Consumers should be aware of this since there are quite a number of brands available today and choosing the right product can be challenging.
"Individuals who suffer from medical conditions such as arthritis use glucosamine supplements. These supplements are widely believed to be effective in providing pain relief and improving mobility for patients," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
A new British report has revealed that some popular supplements can work for fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Researchers evaluated about 31 complementary medicines and rated them based on their effects on the pain, disability or quality of life of the subjects. Some supplements were given a "5" rating, which suggested that there was consistent evidence that the supplements helped.
The supplements that obtained the "5" rating are capsaicin and fish oil. Glucosamine is very popular in many areas around the world, especially in the United States. There has been some evidence that demonstrates glucosamine's ability to reduce pain and provide positive changes in the joint. Interestingly, the sulfate form of glucosamine received a better score than the hydrochloride form.
According to North Dakota State University Professor and Chair of Pharmacy Practice Donald Miller, there may be a shortage of evidence that support the efficacy of supplements, but many people are still using them.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that half of all adults in the United States are using supplements such as minerals, herbs and multivitamins. According to researchers, individuals who are suffering from arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions are often interested in trying alternative medicines just to manage their pain.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is not regulating supplements in the same way as they do with drugs. This is why it is extremely important for patients to choose the right herbal company from which to get their supplements.
Glucosamine supplements are widely popular these days. Experts suggest that patients should not only look for a safe and effective product, but also one that contains other natural ingredients in addition to glucosamine. Among these ingredients are chondroitin, MSM and turmeric (http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/ie=UTF8?m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=glucosamine).
