A study just released at midnight finds two popular supplements - glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate - are no better at relieving arthritis symptoms, than a placebo.

Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate did not appear to help in slowing loss of cartilage in osteoarthritis of the knee. Those in the study took the supplements for two years. Researchers say there was no significant improvement in the joint problems or progression of osteoarthritis.

The research was done by the University Of Utah.
