Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis have a high societal impact and are characterized by joint inflammation and degradation of the cartilage. Conventional medicine often causes severe side effects and therefore patients are willing to use dietary supplements as an alternative. We examined the available literature to assess the effectiveness and safety of widely used dietary supplements by arthritis patients. The gathered evidence shows variable results and not all supplements are as effective. Since limited evidence is available, more research is needed to refute or support the use of these supplements.
