There is evidence from one well-designed study that an Ayurvedic formula containing roots of Withania somnifera, the stem of Boswellia serrata, rhizomes of Curcuma longa, and a zinc complex (Articulin-F®) may significantly improve symptoms of osteoarthritis. Another study suggests that taking guggul (Commiphora mukul) daily as a powder capsule supplement may reduce pain and improve functioning in patients with OA. Further research is needed before a recommendation can be made.
