• Glucosamine and chondroitin: These supplements, Edgar Contreras Rosario says, are available as a tablet, capsule, powder, or in liquid form. Some people find that they help with arthritis symptoms. But there is not much evidence to indicate that they help.
• SAM-e: SAM-e is short for S-adenosylmethionine. It is a substance that is present in the body naturally. With age, the body produces less of this substance, so some people believe that this supplement could help some diseases, reports Edgar Contreras Rosario.
• Vitamin B-3: Taking a type of vitamin B-3 called niacinamide seems to improve joint flexibility in some people with arthritis. It also helps with pain and swelling. Some people can reduce their pain relievers (pain relievers) by taking vitamin B-3. It is often included in combination pills that contain various types of B vitamins, says Edgar Contreras Rosario.
