This is a quick review of Joint Juice Cran Pomegranate Supplement Drink. My primary care physician mentioned that I should try taking chondroitin and glucosamine because together they’ve been shown to help lubricate joints and potentially contribute to cartilage repair over time. Soon after that conversation, I noticed a case of Joint Juice at Costco so I picked it up. I don’t recall exactly, but I believe the case of thirty 8 oz. bottles was $16+.
Here’s what the product claims to do (source)
- Daily glucosamine supplement shown effective in maintaining healthy joint cartilage
- Chondroitin combined with glucosamine shown to improve joint function and mobility
- Vitamin D essential for a number of cellular activities
- Green tea extract powerful antioxidants that may help your cartilage stay healthy
- Vitamin C essential for joint health; powerful antioxidant that is a key to healthy cartilage, tendons and ligaments
I drank 1 bottle chilled per day for 30 days.
It tastes like watered down cranberry juice. No after taste at all.
WHAT I HOPED TO GET
Improved joint function and mobility + reduced pain, stiffness and/or tenderness in my knees.
WHAT I GOT
A refreshing beverage.
I had no indication either from my doctor or from the Joint Juice website of how long I should give this product (or any such chondroitin and glucosamine supplement) before I feel a difference in my knees. After 30 days I noticed absolutely no improvement in my pain, tenderness, flexibility, stiffness etc. None. I guess I wanted this to do something magical but it did not. I could give it a longer trial, but I’ll never know unless someone gives me a few cases of the stuff because I’ve moved on to trying other options (reviews coming soon).
WOULD I RECOMMEND IT?
No if you’re looking for a change in 1 month. Maybe if you have time to drink it for an extended period of time and just see what happens. I know if you’re in pain, often you can’t wait that long but it’s worth a try.
Anyhoo … I hope this helps someone. As I mentioned, I’m currently on a 30 day trial of another product for joint health so stay tuned for that review soon.
Have you tried Joint Juice or any chondroitin and glucosamine supplement? If so, have you had results and how long have you been taking it? Do tell.
