Food and supplements that are unlikely to help
Some people with arthritis find that cider vinegar and honey ease their symptoms, although there’s no scientific evidence to show that they’re helpful. But there’s no reason why you shouldn’t try it if you want to.
MSM (methylsulphonylmethane) is a sulphur-containing substance that has been recommended for various health problems, including arthritis. However, there’s no strong evidence to support the effectiveness of MSM for treating symptoms of arthritis.
CMO (cetylmyristoleate) is a waxy substance made from beef fat, which some people claim can help arthritis. Again, there’s little scientific evidence that it does so.
