Joint Advantage Gold Review

joint-advantage-gold-1

Created by Dr. David Williams, Joint Advantage Gold is supposedly the result of the “greatest joint-healing secrets” from around the globe.

Dr. David Williams claims to have traveled over 100,000 miles to uncover the natural treatments and cures inside this joint supplement. With “14 unique ingredients” from around the world, Joint Advantage Gold purportedly reduces joint pain and rebuilds worn-down joints.

As adventurous as Dr. David Williams and his joint supplement sound, I can’t help but be a little skeptical. Is his formula really all that different from any other joint pain reliever on the market?

Let’s uncover the mystery together by looking at the ingredients. . .

Ingredient Information

For all its claims to be unique and different, Joint Advantage Gold supplies a fairly run-of-the-mill formula. It contains the typical blend of glucosamine and boswellia, as well as a few unproven ingredients based on hype rather than science:

Glucosamine Sulfate. If you’re familiar with joint supplements at all, then you probably already know about glucosamine sulfate. This compound is found naturally in the joints and it contains the basic building blocks for repairing and restoring tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. 1500 mg of glucosamine is the most commonly recommended dosage for treating arthritis and joint pain, which is exactly how much Joint Advantage Gold provides when you take the full days dose.

Boswellia Extract. Also known as Indian frankincense, boswellia extract has been a part of traditional Indian and Arabic medicine for years. Its resins contain substances that may decrease inflammation, making it a reliable treatment for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint pain, and tendonitis. Recommended dosage is 100-350 mg boswellia daily, and Joint Gold Advantage contains nearly double that amount – 616 mg in 4 tablets.

Natural Eggshell Membrane. NEM is a trademarked ingredient belonging to ESM technologies. It contains naturally occurring glycosaminglycoans and proteins essential for maintaining healthy joint and connective tissues. It recently received GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status by the FDA. According to ESMIngredients.com, “Published clinical research on NEM® showed an improvement in joint comfort and flexibility in just 7 to 10 days with only 500mg per day.” [1]

Bromelain. This enzyme complex is extracted from pineapple. It aids in the breakdown of certain proteins and plays a key role in digestion. Some believe Bromelain can reduce inflammation and have an aspirin-like effect on the body, but this has yet to be proven.

Australian Herbal Blend

Wild Roselle. A species of Hibiscus, roselle is primarily harvested for its fiber to use in burlap production. However, folk medicine traditionally uses roselle as a mild laxative and diuretic.

Lemon Myrtle. Lemon Myrtle offers antimicrobial properties and it may help treat sinus infection, fatigue, and cold symptoms. Clinical research does not support these claims.

Aniseed Myrtle. This Australian tree is commonly used as a flavoring spice. It may have antimicrobial effects but further studies are needed.

Mountain Pepper Leaf. Also known as Tasmanian pepper, mountain pepper is popular in Cornish cuisine. Other than adding flavor, I don’t see how this ingredient contributes to joint pain relief.

European Herbal Blend.

Devil’s Claw. Devil’s claw contains chemicals that might decrease inflammation and swelling. It is commonly recommended as an osteoarthritis treatment in 50-100 mg doses. However, this ingredient is part of a 260 mg blend divided among several other ingredients. I suspect it is under dosed in this supplement.

White Willow. White willow contains the chemical salicin which is remarkably similar to aspirin. It relieves pain and is often used to treat headaches, muscle pain, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. 120-240 mg salicin is recommended for short-term back pain relief, though long-term effects are unknown.

Yucca Extract. Yucca contains chemicals that can reduce high blood pressure, lower high cholesterol, and treat arthritis symptoms such as pain, swelling, and stiffness. Not enough is known about Yucca to determine its long-effects or find a safe clinical dosage.

Feverfew. Feverfew is purportedly useful for a wide variety of problems such as arthritis, allergies, asthma, dizziness, and nausea. However, these claims need further research. The only proven effect feverfew has is preventing migraine headaches in some individuals when taken in 50-100 mg dosages. [2]

Celery Extract. Celery is thought to contain chemicals which cause sleepiness, decrease arthritis, lower blood sugar, and trigger muscle relaxation. Like so many other ingredients in Joint Advantage Gold, celery needs additional release to validate these claims.

Papaya Extract. Papaya contains the chemical carpain, which is able to kill certain parasites. The fruit is often used to treat gastrointestinal tract disorders and may also act as a sedative and diuretic.

Bovine Cartilage. Chondroitin is commonly extracted from cow cartilage and is often used in conjunction with glucosamine to treat arthritis. It supplies the basic building blocks of cartilage, potentially slowing joint degeneration.

Should You Be Worried About Side Effects?

Joint Advantage Gold contains two proprietary blends of unproven ingredients, so consumers should definitely be cautious before using this supplement.

The most common symptoms with all of these ingredients are nausea, constipation, diarrhea, and abdominal pain.

Several ingredients are not safe to use for longer than 8 to 12 weeks, while others can interact negatively with medications. For example, papaya has a moderate interaction with warfarin, a commonly prescribed blood thinner. If you are taking medication, consult your doctor before taking Joint Advantage Gold.

A Drug Interaction Guide for Joint Advantage Gold is available at DrDavidWilliams.com.

Allergy Warning. Glucosamine is extracted from shellfish. Do not take Joint Advantage Gold if you are allergic to shellfish or seafood.

It also contains egg from egg shell membrane, which may an allergic reaction as well.

Consult medical help immediately if you experience hives or rashes while taking Joint Advantage Gold.

Recommended Usage

Joint Gold Advantage should be taken twice daily, two tablets before or with a meal.

Who Makes Joint Advantage Gold?

Joint Advantage Gold is manufactured and distributed by Healthy Directions LLC, a company based in Pennsylvania.

According to HealthyDirections.com, Healthy Directions originally began as a newsletter division of Phillips Publishing International in 1985. As the company evolved it began to branch out into selling products as well as writing health articles.

In 2004, the business was sold and official rebranded as Healthy Divisions. Not a bad little backstory.

According to the Better Business Bureau Healthy Directions LLC received an A+ on a rating scale of A+ to F, a pretty impressive score compared to most other supplement manufacturers.

“BBB has determined that Healthy Directions, LLC meets BBB accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make a good faith effort to resolve any consumer complaints. BBB Accredited Businesses pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.”

In the last 3 years, 25 complaints were filed against the company, but each of the complaints were resolved and closed in a timely manner.

However, Healthy Directions does have one small black spot on its record. Recently, on Nov. 13, 2012, The National Advertising Division recommended that Healthy Divisions discontinue advertising claims on Joint Advantage Gold.

According to the report, “NAD determined that the advertiser’s body of evidence on NEM (Natural Eggshell Membrane) supplementation could not support claims to relief in seven days and recommended that such claims be discontinued.” [3]

Who is Dr. Williams?
Dr. David Williams’ name is plastered all over Joint Gold Advantage, and he even has his own website selling Healthy Directions supplements.

But who exactly is he?

According to the bio available at DrDavidWilliams.com, Dr. Williams “has developed a reputation as one of the world’s leading authorities on natural healing. For more than 25 years, he has traveled the world uncovering natural treatments and cures for practically every major health concern today. As a result, Dr. Williams has personally identified 27 major medical breakthroughs that he’s used to formulate health remedies, therapies and supplements that address the root cause of illness.”

In a way, Dr. David Williams is portrayed almost like a modern day Indiana Jones, only with a medical twist rather than an archeological one.

However, the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) has a contradictory opinion of the man.

“Williams is a chiropractor who apparently prefers publishing medicine-bashing, health hype to popping spines. Williams has been writing and publishing his personal newsletter Alternatives “For the Health Conscious Individual” since 1989. . . . Our reading of his mini-magazines leads to the conclusion that “#1 expert” Williams merely reiterates the same unsubstantiated claims for health food products that have been being made for many years. It seems like his “research” has been simply reading health foods propaganda.” [4]

Is It A Good Treatment for Joint Relief?

I’m not too impressed with Joint Advantage Gold. Many of the ingredients are based on hype rather than science, and more often than not, they are under dosed.

Though the manufacturers seem reliable enough, I don’t trust Dr. David Williams’ recommendation for the product nor his over-the-top claims about the ingredients from around the world.

Although there are plenty of consumer reviews on HealthyDirections.com and DrDavidWilliams.com praising Joint Advantage Gold for its effectiveness, there are almost no reviews posted on other distributing sites, making me suspect the reviews are faked.

While Joint Advantage Gold may work, and the money-back guarantee may be worth trying, I think there are more reliable supplements out there for a much more affordable price.
