There are several supplements that are being marketed to treat arthritis. Most have clever names to catch the attention of people who may be interested in buying them -- but there's more to a product than an enticing label. It's important for you to know the ingredients, what the product claims to do, how it should be taken, and more.

Joint Juice is just one example of what I'm talking about. Clever name, right? Something that would catch your attention in an advertisement or on a store shelf? But you should look beyond that and learn about the product. Joint Juice is a liquid (juice-based) dietary supplement -- with 1500 mg glucosamine and vitamin C as its main ingredients. The makers of Joint Juice claim that, in healthy people, there is improved joint function and flexibility in 4 to 8 weeks after beginning to drink Joint Juice. However, the claims are not based on any apparent clinical studies nor have they been evaluated by the FDA. It's always wise to discuss any supplement or new treatment you wish to try with your doctor. Learn more in Joint Juice - What Osteoarthritis Patients Need to Know.

Day 2 + 4 hours & the chronic hip pain that I’ve had for the past 4 years was gone. It still is.

I tried the joint juice and in about 1 week I noticed a big difference. Been drinking the juice, 1 per day for about 1 month now and my knee (osteoarthritis) is so much better. Put it like this, when I took a bath, I was afraid to use that leg first to get up, in fear of falling. Now, I use that leg with no hesitation. To me, thats huge!!!!

Bottled Water doesn’t have to be regulated by the FDA either!!!! While tapp water/ faucet water has to be constantly regulated and tested.
The joint juice is awesome, the cost is low… about 5 or 6 dollars for a 6-pack. Its worth trying!!!! I love it.

Joint juice affects me differently than taking glucosomine – it makes me light-headed and causes the runs. Not sure what’s in it or why it affects me like this, but I’m returning the 30-pac
