Daily supplements of chondroitin sulfate may be superior to celecoxib, a potent anti-inflammatory drug, for supporting knew joint health and delaying the progression of osteoarthritis, says a new study.
Not only are chondroitin sulfate supplements superior to celecoxib in the control of osteoarthritis, they are also completely safe.
The known side-effects of celecoxib, on the other hand, are numerous and include serious liver problems; bleeding in the stomach or intestines; increased risk of heart attack or stroke; allergic reactions; breathing problems; skin problems; bloody or black, tarry stools; urinary problems; chest pain; shortness of breath; coughing up blood; heart rhythm problems; nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, stomach pain; numbness or weakness in arms, legs or on one side of the body; calf pain; sudden or severe headache; dizziness; problems with vision, speech, or walking; swelling in hands, ankles, or feet; rapid weight gain; and tiredness or weakness.
