potential interaction between warfarin and glucosamine-chondroitin supplements

There's some concern about a potential interaction between warfarin and glucosamine-chondroitin supplements.

Chondroitin is a small component of a heparinoid...and MIGHT have weak anticoagulant activity. Glucosamine is also a small component of heparin...but it probably DOESN'T have any anticoagulant activity.
