Glucosamine supplements may cut heart risk: Study

No icon Pharmaceuticals

Health Desk-15 May, 2019: A new research has suggested that Glucosamine supplements known as a remedy for joint pain may lower a person's risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

The findings have come from nearly half a million people in the UK.

Almost one in five of the 466,039 participants said they took glucosamine.

Users were less likely to develop heart and artery diseases or stroke, or die from these conditions.

The results suggest a possible benefit, but more and longer studies are needed.

It could be that users are generally more healthy, rather than glucosamine having a direct effect, experts caution.

The findings were published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ).
