Chondroitin is a substance that occurs naturally in the connective tissues. As a supplement in higher doses than is found naturally, chondroitin is a popular choice for arthritis. Chondroitin is often paired with Glucosamine and/or MSM. The evidence seems to be mixed. Researchers have found that chondroitin appears to reduce pain, increase joint mobility, and decrease the need for painkillers.

Boswellia is a tree native to India, Africa, and Arabia. The resin from the bark is considered to be a potent anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, and analgesic agent that may be helpful with managing arthritis. Some research shows that taking certain extracts of boswellia can reduce pain and improve mobility in people with osteoarthritis in joints. Other research shows that taking combination products containing boswellia and other herbal ingredients can also reduce pain and improve function in people with osteoarthritis.

Glucosamine is a natural amino sugar produced by your body. The highest natural concentration of glucosamine is in joints and
cartilage, where it makes up the structure of glycosaminoglycans, compounds essential for joint health. This supplement is normally processed from crustacean shells or produced by the bacterial fermentation of grains. The way glucosamine affects arthritis isn't completely understood. Researchers believe that naturally occurring glucosamine helps protect the cartilage inside your joints. Additionally, several studies suggest that taking glucosamine supplements may reduce collagen breakdown and inflammation, which are the main causes for joint cartilage breakdown.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring mucopolysaccharide. Hyaluronic acid acts primarily as a cushioning and hydrating agent, with a high water absorption capacity. This gel-like molecule is found naturally within the cartilage and synovial fluid of the joints, HA helps with lubrication. However, as the availability of HA decreases with age, so too does the lubrication. There has been a lot of research investigating the effect of HA on patients suffering from osteoarthritis. Due to the important joint cushioning characteristics of HA, it's been theorized that increasing the availability of this molecule may help to minimize joint pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis.
