Notes
The reduction observed with salai for pain and other symptoms of osteoarthritis are more profound than other supplements including that of glucosamine (reference), but study robustness is restricted by industry influence.
Limited research suggests a discount in pain, but the studies available don't provide evidence for an improvement within the other symptoms.
Curcumin supplementation has resulted during a remarkable and consistent reduction of osteoarthritis symptoms in many studies. Of the osteoarthritis symptoms, it appears to be better for pain and physical function, while it is less clear whether it reduces stiffness. Caution should be maintained because of the evidence from the studies.
Supplementation with curcumin resulted during a notable, consistent reduction in osteoarthritis symptoms across many studies. Of the osteoarthritis symptoms, it seems to be best for pain and physical function, while it's less clear if it reduces stiffness. Caution should be taken because of many of the studies not being high quality.
A decrease in osteoarthritis symptoms has been noted and appears to be a low level comparable in potency to glucosamine sulfate.
The preliminary evidence at now in time (promising and independent, but limited) support the usage of pycnogenol in reducing all symptoms of osteoarthritis, reaching up to a halving of symptoms but requiring 90 days for effects to occur.
