Regular exercise is essential to preserving your health—and it’s even more important if you suffer from arthritis, since losing excess weight and increasing your strength can help to lighten the load on your joints in the long run. The key is to find supplements that can minimize your exercise routine’s more damaging effects—while still allowing you to reap the many benefits of physical activity.

Glucosamine is one of the most popular and effective answers to this common paradox, with research showing that this cartilage-supporting molecule can significantly relieve inflammation, while improving your joint function and combating degeneration.
Additional joint-protective compounds can work in tandem with glucosamine to enhance its effects—most notably chondroitin sulfate and methylsulfonylmethane/MSM, which can reduce pain and swelling, slow your joints’ breakdown, plus increase flexibility and mobility.
In a prospective, cohort study involving 77,719 residents of Washington state, between the ages of 50 and 76 years, who were followed for an average of 5 years, during which 3,577 deaths occurred over the course of 387,801 person-years of follow up, supplementation with glucosamine and chondroitin were each associated with reductions in total mortality (HR=0.83 and HR=0.83, comparing high intake, defined as > or = 4 d/wk for > or = 3 years to low intake). In addition, high intake of fish oil was associated with a reduced risk of total mortality as well (HR=0.83), however the test for trend was not significantly significant. These results suggest that regular long-term supplementation with glucosamine and/or chondroitin may reduce the risk of total mortality.
