A new study suggests that taking chondroitin sulfate with glucosamine hydrochloride is as effective as taking the commonly used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug celecoxib for knee osteoarthritis.  ” The researchers found that pain was reduced by 50% in clinically and statistically relevant measures for both the chondroitin and celecoxib groups. Furthermore, both groups also experienced 50% less joint swelling. The authors noted that there were few reported side effects in both treatment groups.”
