Osteoarthritis of the knee affects millions. Drug companies make bazillions on snake oil for the problem. But there are a lot of ways to stop the pain without dangerous drugs. Glucosamine, for instance, works wonders for many. For others, though, it doesn't seem to help. Now, we have a new mineral supplement from the sea that may provide you with some much needed relief.

A recent study looked at the mineral supplement Aquamin. What is Aquamin? It's a unique source of minerals derived from the seaweed off the southwest coasts of Ireland and Iceland. It's loaded with calcium, magnesium, and has over 70 other important trace minerals, which are found only in the ocean. And, according to a new study, it treats knee pain extremely well.

This randomized and double-blind study (the best kind) followed 50 patients who had moderate to severe osteoarthritis of the knee. The researchers randomized the participants to receive Aquamin (2,400 mg daily), glucosamine sulfate (1,500 mg daily), both supplements, or a placebo.

Both the Aquamin and glucosamine groups improved. The placebo group did not. Interestingly, the combination group did not show significant improvement either. So if glucosamine doesn't work for you, Aquamin might be another option.
