Have there been studies comparing Glucosamine Sulphate to NSAIDs?
Yes. In these head-to-head double-blind studies Glucosamine Sulphate was shown to produce better results than NSAIDs in relieving the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis despite the fact that Glucosamine Sulphate exhibits very little direct anti inflammatory effect and no direct analgesic or pain relieving effects. While NSAIDs offer purely symptomatic relief and may actually promote the disease osteoarthritis. By treating the root of the problem through actually building joint cartilage, Glucosamine Sulphate not only improves the symptoms, including pain, it also helps the body repair damaged joints. The clinical effect is impressive especially when Glucosamine Sulphate’s safety and lack of side effects is considered.
