OsteoJuv Reviews and Report

Finally a Breakthrough in Joint Pain

In an industry full of supposed “breakthroughs” and empty promises, it is normal for a consumer to feel duped and taken advantage of. Companies build up the hopes of so many suffering from joint pain, only to deliver little to no real results.

That is why it is so refreshing to see a product like OsteoJuv.

osteo_with_capsulesThe scientists over at OsteoJuv use only medical grade, clinically proven ingredients in their formulas. You won’t hear about a rare cactus from the desert or fish oil harvested from an exotic location from OsteoJuv. They leave that nonsense for the “other guys.” Instead, OsteoJuv focused its studies on ingredients that scientists already knew worked. What they found was that by “tweaking” the concentrations of ingredients doctors already knew worked, they could deliver far more effective, lasting relief.

The secret to Osteojuv isn’t some 3rd world cooking spice but rather precise concentrations of medically proven ingredients. The key is the relationship between each of the ingredients. OsteoJuv optimized each ingredients’ performance and turned the joint pain industry on its ear in the process.

OsteoJuv understands that in order to treat joint pain completely it must address each of following aspects of joint damage and pain:

1. Inflammation – Inflammation and swelling within the joint creates sensitive tissue. Chronic inflammation releases tissue damaging enzymes that can further degrade your bone and joint health. OsteoJuv uses one of the highest concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid, also known as HA. HA reduces inflammation, blocks tissue damaging enzymes and lubricates the joints to prevent future inflammation.

2. Cushioning of the Joint – Hyaluronic Acid also plays a large role in the cushioning of the joints. HA is found in the synovial fluids in the joints, it increases the viscosity of the joint and provides essential cushioning for the joints, especially weight bearing joints. Due to the concentration of HA in OsteoJuv it delivers the treatment to your joints quickly and more effectively than other joint pills. In addition, HA provides a lubricating layer over the bone ends, cartilage and tendons that allow the joints to glide through their range of motion.

3. Rebuild Damaged Cartilage and Bone Health – OsteoJuv also contains the proven dietary supplements Glucosamine Sulfate and Chondroitin Sulfate. These well documented ingredients promote cartilage growth and provide the necessary building blocks for optimal joint health. By tweaking the concentrations and molecular structure, OsteoJuv was able to create a far superior, faster acting remedy. OsteoJuv out-performed every other glucosamine and chondroitin supplement we tested. Amazing scientific work.

4. Increase Range of Motion – OsteoJuv’s groundbreaking formula rapidly increases the viscosity of your joints. Osteoarthritis can eliminate the fluids and gaps between bone ends within the joint, Osteojuv provides your joints the fluids and lubrication you need to move pain free. In addition, OsteoJuv coats and protects the areas within the joint, allowing them to glide without friction within the joint.

Overall OsteoJuv Review

This is the most amazing joint pain pill we have ever seen. To be honest, we’ve grown tired with the nonsense “hype” of rare ingredients from exotic locations. For years we have wanted real, scientific evidence that a product works. We wanted to be able to actually find the clinical studies of the ingredients and read them for ourselves. We wanted to know that doctors and medical practitioners not only recommend the use of these products, but that they too use them in their day to day treatment of joint pain.

OsteoJuv has delivered all of that and more. Hands down, this is the most fantastic joint pain treatment we have ever tested.

Many joint pain pills will address inflammation but not cushioning and bone health. Others will address bone health but not inflammation. OsteoJuv delivers completely and total joint treatment.

If you suffer from joint pain and are looking for something you can trust will work, look no further. Osteojuv is trusted and well respected by industry professionals, it is affordable and best of all it works!!

Instaflex Report Reveals Consumers Left Feeling Scammed

This is a report of our findings on Instaflex, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

These reviews are conducted by taking the time to look at the research behind the active ingredients contained in Instaflex and by reviewing other available information about the company / quality of the product.

Instaflex is another one of the joint supplement companies that use large TV ad campaigns to generate buzz about their product.  While they sell the product in GNC, you are unable to just buy the product on their website on a one-time basis.  Instaflex forces you take a FREE TRIAL offer for 14 days, which sounds nice enough, until  you start getting billed automatically.  We have always found this business practice to be somewhat shady, but as long as they disclose this to consumers, it is up to you to read the fine print.    See how Instaflex stood up in a comparison of 10 major brands.

Anatabloc Reports Reveal Active Ingredient ONLY Tested on Mice

This is a report of our findings on Anatabloc, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

Anatabloc Product source

Anatabloc is another well recognized brand of joint supplement.  Major television advertisement campaigns have landed Anatabloc as one of the more prominent joint supplements.  Celebrity endorsements from the likes of Fred Couples and John Isner have further spurred along sales volume, however everyone was surprised to find out that the active ingredients Anatabloc contains have never been tested on Humans in regards to joint pain. source

See how Anatabloc stood up in a comparison of 10 major brands.

Our Anatabloc Review began with a quick study of “the Science” page of their website.  There is a nice computer animation of their active ingredient blocking inflammation.  Then, tucked at the bottom of the page is the quote causing much controversy.  Anatabloc® has been shown in pre-clinical tests to assist in maintaining healthy levels of c-reactive protein, indicating that it helps provide anti-inflammatory support.”  

The problem is the wording Pre-Clinical.  Pre-Clinical, by definition, means the stage of research PRIOR TO HUMAN TESTING. source  Basically, what they are saying in a round-a-bout way is that they have seen some evidence in our testing on mice, however as of this time that evidence is not yet significant enough to warrant human testing.   Continue reading

Omega XL Reviews May Surprise You, Read Before You Buy

This is a report of our findings on Omega XL, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

Omega XL product source

Omega XL is a very visible joint supplement in the marketplace. Extensive TV advertisements and other media adds fuel to their online presence. According to reports, the sales volume of Omega XL is rising, however the reviews of consumers and the complaints board websites tell a much more concerning story.

See a Side-by-side comparison of 10 major brands

In order the set the record straight, we thought we would take a thorough look at Omega XL and publish our review and report of this joint supplement. After doing our research and investigation, we came to 2 Conclusions about Omega XL.

1. Omega XL Provides Incomplete or Limited Joint Pain Relief

Omega XL joint supplement is named because of the fact that it contains Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Fish oil, which can be harvested from a number of sources as well as manufactured in a lab, although Omega XL claims it is harvested from the “green lipped muscles of New Zealand”. The notion that Omega 3’s perform any differently in your body because they are from New Zealand is comical, even misleading if we are being honest. However, there is plenty of information which documents numerous health benefits of Omega 3’s, one of which applies to joint health…inflammation. Continue reading

Osteo Bi Flex Reviews Show Consumers Have Mixed Emotions

This is a report of our findings on Osteo Bi Flex, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

Osteo Bi Flex has been around for a while.  You may not have paid attention to the television osteobiflexads before you had joint discomfort, however, their presence is nothing new.  Available at most major drug store or warehouse type stores, the brand is easily accessible, however the reviews of Osteo Bi Flex are not all positive.

Most of the concerns that revolve around Osteo Bi Flex have to do with the effectiveness.  The company uses ingredients that established and capable of delivering results on a long enough time line.  The problem is that most Americans want results NOW.  Some of the more advanced joint supplements are capable of delivering those speedy results and because Osteo Bi Flex takes months and months to show real benefit, consumers grow frustrated.

TFX Flex Reviews and Report

TFX Flex Reviews Company Uses Misleading Scientific Info for Profit

This is a report of our findings on TFX Flex, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

TFX Flex Reviews how the company is a relative new comer to the joint supplements tfx-flex-reviewsmarketplace, however the formula and active ingredients TFX Flex contains are NOT new.  UC II Collagen products can be found everywhere nowadays, however most are priced cheaper than TFX Flex.  Our reviews examined not only the effectiveness of the product, but also the striking similarities between TFX Flex products and other joint supplements on the market.  Experts site concerns specifically about their misleading use of a study they claim “proves” their product is 2x more effective than Glucosamine and Chondroitin.  

See how TFX Flex compared to 10 major brands

TFX Flex is counting on the fact that consumers take these statements as fact without looking further into the claims.  There is evidence that UC II can be effective in easing joint discomfort, however their claims that it is better than glucosamine and chondroitin relies upon very low concentrations of glucosamine and chondroitin, much lower than typical joint supplements contain. In addition, they compare UC II Collagen to glucosamine HCl, which has proven to be far less effective than glucosamine sulfate. (source) This is nothing more than a marketing ploy, one in which TFX Flex hopes to convince consumers their product is a “breakthrough.”  In reality, there are a host of UC II Collagen based joint supplements on the market, some of which consumers have reported having been ripped off!  (source)

The joint supplement industry is one where nearly every company is claiming to have the latest “breakthrough” or “discovery.”  These companies are hoping that if they dish out enough “sizzle” enough consumers will buy the product, or better yet sign up for their automatic delivery via a “free trial.”

As many of you know these free trials are seldom free and true to form, when you examine the fine print on TFX Flex website you can see they intend to charge you for the product and subsequent deliveries each month.  While this is not uncommon within the industry, we recommend you use caution when signing up for any offers of this nature!!

See how TFX Flex compared to 10 major brands

Let’s address the science for a minute.  Yes, UC II collagen has proven to be mildly effective in reducing joint discomfort, however it does nothing to prevent further or reverse existing degeneration of the joint.  Glucosamine comes in a number of varieties, most commonly Glucosamine HCL and Glucosamine Sulfate.  Glucosamine Sulfate has the more established results and in high enough concentration, it is proven to be highly effective.  FTX Flex would have you believe that UC II out performs ALL types of glucosamine regardless of concentration, and that simply is not true.  In addition, the study the company sites only examined hip and knee joint pain, examined a very small number of people and was conducted in a foreign country with different standards than we have in the US.

Overall FTX Flex Review and Report

FTX Flex is joined up with GNC as a partner, which made us even more surprised at the marketing approach.  We understand that as a company they want to make money, but when your marketing information could potentially be construed as misleading consumers, it is  a large price to pay.  Showing small fractions of research that only tell a limited version of the entire story, is not exclusive to FTX Flex but it bothers us enough to recommend you pass on this joint pill.

FTX Flex may be the joint supplement you have been waiting for, but if it is so wonderful, why do they take these kinds of advertising ploys?  Why not let the product stand on its own?

See how TFX Flex compared to 10 major brands

We recommend you use caution before making any purchases or signing up for any deals.  As a new company there is only limited information from their customers available and most of the info out there on the company, was released by TFX Flex in a press release, so it is difficult to trust the validity of these claims.

Move Free Reviews and Report

Move Free Reviews – Quality Ingredients But Not Strong Enough

This is a report of our findings on Move Free, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

The Move Free reviews that we have read in the past have been rather vanilla.  The company movefreeseems to do business the right way and there are not as many complaints about Move Free as there are with some of the other leading joint supplements.  While billing practices may play a role in that, our readers have requested a closer look at Move Free users are saying about the product.

See how Move Free stood up in a comparison of 10 major brands.

Based upon the label, we know that Move Free uses grounded ingredients that have a history of use in the joint supplement world.  While many “hype” marketers will try to tell you that a rare cactus from some exotic location has the latest breakthrough ingredient, in reality there is little to those claims.  Move Free has created a formula using established ingredients, and we respect that.  Unfortunately, the concentration of these ingredients is too low for them to be effective, and many users complained of upset stomach and diarrhea.

Now Joint Support Reviews and Report

Now Joint Support Reports Say Pill Leaves Essential Ingredients Out

This is a report of our findings on Now Joint Support, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

Our Now Joint Support Reviews started by examining claims that this joint support formula now-joint-support-reviewsis incomplete.  Now Joint Support uses a number of ingredients, too many of them to discuss in detail here, however very few ingredients pertain specifically to joint health.

Now Joint Support uses Glucosamine HCl as its primary active ingredient, and while we prefer glucosamine sulfate due to the results of clinical studies, it is better to have some glucosamine than none at all.  We were a bit shocked, however, to see that even Now Joint Support manufacturers claim it needs to be taken along with Hyaluronic Acid for best results.

Supple Report Reveal Lots of Complaints Online

This is a report of our findings on Supple, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

Our Supple Reviews and Report was actually very surprising to us.  Supple is a joint

supple-reviewssupplement drink that combines Glucosamine and Chondroitin in an effort to restore proper joint health.  Supple has been on the market a few years, and as is the case with other anti inflammatory drinks and joint supplements, they have been promising consumers huge results.

Supple offers consumers anywhere from a month to a month and a half worth of joint supplement drink.  Most options come with automatic billing and shipping, which can be a real benefit as long as modifying or canceling is easy.  Our Supple Report, however, discovered that customers of Supple say canceling automatic delivery is difficult and that the product just does not work!

Joint Juice Reviews Reveal Joint Drink Uses Un-Proven Ingredient

This is a report of our findings on Joint Juice, not a review or our personal opinion.  Based upon our research of the brand, its ingredients and the opinions of their consumers, we have compiled the following report to speed your research and to highlight any interesting findings; both positive and negative.

Joint Juice reviews show the company burst on to the scene a few years back with the Joe joint-juice-reviewsMontana commercial.  I know it grabbed my attention and obviously enough Americans agree because the company has been doing well ever since.  Joint Juice is a joint supplement unlike many of the others that we review and discuss here because it is a drink rather than a capsule or pill.

See how Joint Juice compared to 10 major brands

Liquid supplements are always somewhat of a concern for us due to the fact that taste has to play a role.  Typically supplements taste gross, however joint juice wasn’t that bad.  I wouldn’t drink it if there was no hope of joint pain relief, however it is tolerable.  The main issue we had with Joint Juice was their use of an a less effective version of Glucosamine.
