According to a report from ConsumerReports.org, several products on the market that intend to support healthy joints failed to meet their ingredient claims. The article states that in 2012, U.S consumers spent $753 million on health supplements that contain glucosamine and chondroitin. These ingredients work together to relieve pain and increase the mobility of joints that are suffering from stiffness and arthritis. ConsumerReports.org ran tests on 16 commonly purchased supplements and found that only seven of the sixteen products contained the amount of chondroitin that it had claimed to contain. From the report, we learn that many supplement companies are claiming their products have a certain quantity of ingredients that they do not. It is important to use caution when purchasing new supplements.
