What is glucosamine?
Glucosamine occurs naturally in your body. We tend to produce less as we age and therefore supplementing with daily glucosamine has been shown effective in maintaining healthy joint cartilage.*
What is chondroitin?
Chondroitin is a major constituent of healthy cartilage. Taking chondroitin combined with glucosamine supports joint function and mobility.*
What is Vitamin D?
Recent research indicates that vitamin D is essential for a number of cellular activities and most people don’t get enough.
What is green tea extract?
Green tea extract has powerful antioxidants that may help your cartilage stay healthy.* We use a green tea extract that is high in a key ingredient called EGCG to ensure you get the health benefits of green tea extract.
What is Vitamin C?
Vitamin C is essential for joint health. It is a powerful antioxidant that is a key to healthy cartilage, tendons and ligaments.*
How much and when should I take it?
Research indicates that you should take a minimum of 1,500 mg of glucosamine daily for joint health.* That’s why we put 1,500 mg in every Joint Juice® product. While there is no best time of day to take Joint Juice® products we believe making it part of your daily routine will be most beneficial.
How does glucosamine work?
Glucosamine works to lubricate your joints by helping cartilage tissue absorb water. This helps cartilage perform its job of cushioning and mobility.*
Safety and side effects?
All Joint Juice® products follow strict standards for purity and are guaranteed to meet all label claims for ingredients. In clinical studies, participants using glucosamine and chondroitin have not experienced any higher levels of adverse events than those taking a placebo.
Can I take too much? Can I take more than one a day?
All Joint Juice® products are very safe. For healthy people it is safe to take more than one Joint Juice® supplement drink, Joint Juice® Easy Shot™ supplement or Joint Juice® On-The-Go drink mix a day, or to use other joint health supplements in combination with Joint Juice® products.
