Arthritic pain is no joke. In the US alone, nearly 54 million people suffer from arthritic joint pain. Over 1 in 4 adults experience severe joint pain on a regular basis. As such, there are a ton of products out there designed to rejuvenate your joints so you can move freely again.
Joint Juice is a health drink that claims it can lessen joint pain and let you move more freely. Joint Juice is designed to make you more mobile by providing ingredients that lubricate the joints so they move smoothly without grinding and pinching.
Not having joint pain sounds like a miracle to some. So today we are going to cover Joint Juice and answer some important questions such as its pros, cons, cost, ingredients, and whether or not it can actually do what it says it does.
Joint Juice: Overview
Joint Juice is a liquid daily supplement designed to promote joint health. Joints become worn down over time due to use which damages the cartilage and causes bones to scrape together. The resulting inflammation is the cause of joint pain. Joint Juice contains vital ingredients that keep joints lubricated so the cartilage doesn’t wear.
Joint Juice is a liquid supplement so you take it by mouth. Simply take a dose once a day in the morning and you should notice joint pain subsiding over time. Each serving of Joint Juice is only 25 calories and contains over 1,000g of glucosamine and chondroitin, 2 substances that promote good joint health. Each serving also contains amounts of green tea extract, vitamin C and Vitamin D.
Since it is a liquid, Joint Juice is easy to take and absorbs readily into the body. According to the manufacturers, each bottle of Joint Juice is made in a USDA-certified factory and checked for quality and packaging.

Who Makes Joint Juice?
Joint Juice is created by a company with the same name Joint Juice. Joint Juice is a subsidiary of Post Holdings, the same company behind cereals like Honey Bunches of Oats and Fruity Pebbles. However, we were unable to find any specific information about Joint Juice as a specific company. The website does not have an about page and we can’t find info on any other products they sell.
We could not even find a BBB page about Joint Juice so we do not know what kinds of complaints the company gets. It’s possible they don’t get any complaints but we would need a BBB page to figure that out. However, most reviews on other retailers indicate that the company has good shipping and billing practices and is fairly responsive to customer support inquiries.
How Does Joint Juice Work?
Joints have two main components that shield them from damage. First, joints have cartilage over the ends of the bone which keeps the bone from grinding together and allows for some flex. Joints are also covered in synovial fluid, a fluid that acts as a lubricant so the cartilage does not dig into one another.
Over time though, synovial fluid can decrease and cartilage can be damaged. The resulting inflammation is what causes the joint pain associated with arthritis.
Joint Juice contains 2 main ingredients: glucosamine and chondroitin. The glucosamine is meant to stimulate the production of synovial fluid so your joints stay lubricated and the chondroitin allows the body to repair damaged cartilage.
We checked out Joint Juice reviews and here is what we found: The vast majority of them are positive and most claim that the product works exactly as intended. Most reviews indicate that the product takes about 2 weeks to kick in, but once it does, joint pain is significantly reduced.
Despite that though, there is some conflicting evidence about the key ingredients in Joint Juice.
Joint Juice Ingredients
Like we said earlier, the two key ingredients in Joint Juice are glucosamine and chondroitin. We found some studies about these two substances and here’s what we found: One study we found showed that those suffering from moderate to severe joint pain reported a 20% decrease in pain after taking a combination of glucosamine and chondroitin. However, both substances were not as effective as another substance called celecoxib.
Further, a 2010 Consumer Report Survey found that only about 1 in 4 people who took both glucosamine and chondroitin experienced a noticeable decrease in pain. So there is conflicting evidence about how effective these two ingredients are.
Joint Juice also contains Vitamins C and D. wE could not find any evidence connecting these two to joint pain reduction, so they are likely just included as a kind of multivitamin.
Safety and Side Effects
We could not find and listed side effects for Joint Juice, nor could we find any noted side effects in the customer reviews. Further, we could not find any studies on the side effects of the product’s main ingredients.
Where to Buy Joint Juice and Cost
You actually can’t buy Joint Juice from the product’s official website. Instead, you click on links to find them at specific retailers. You can buy Joint Juice from Amazon or from some physical retailers such as Walgreens, Sam’s Club, and Costco. A single bottle of joint juice costs $30.
Joint Juice: Is It Worth It?
We say yes, Joint Juice is worth it. Studies have shown that taking the ingredients can lessen joint pain by almost 20%. 20% is quite a lot, so if you have tried other things, why not give Joint Juice a try? Further, Joint Juice is relatively cheap. A $30 bottle can last for a month so that’s about $1 a day for daily doses. That’s a fairly decent price per day ratio. The only downside is the taste.
