Can hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin or MSM help in rheumatism?

We can be short about this: the answer is no.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease. To treat this type of disease one must first treat the inflammation. Especially relevant, these compounds do not fight inflammation.

Ingesting hyaluronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM can only have a purpose when the cause of the joint problems is due to a shortage of building materials for cartilage and/or lubrication molecules. Consequently this is almost never the case in rheumatism.

A better alternative in rheumatoid arthritis might be the liquid combination of the natural inflammatory inhibitors Green-lipped mussel, Bio-Curcumin and Blackcurrant leaf. However, in a lot of cases you may have to use the pharmaceutic anti-rheumatic drugs.
