Joint Juice Review
Joint Juice is a flavorful way to get the pain relieving ingredients you need without the hassle of swallowing yet another pill or applying a messy cream. Instead, you can take this drink with you on the go and sip it at your leisure.
Originally developed for Pro Athletes by orthopedic surgeon Kevin R. Stone, Joint Juice offers popular ingredients for improving joint health.
According to advertisements, “A bottle a day keeps your joints in play,” but is Joint Juice really the supplement you need?
Three Ways to Loosen Up
JointFlex.com features three products for improving overall joint health:
Joint Juice On the Go Drink Mix. This drink mix is available in easily stowed packets which can be combined with your typical 16 oz. water bottle. It comes with a healthy dose of vitamin C, D, and calcium, as well as antioxidants extracted from green tea. Available flavor: Blueberry-Acai. (Note: Joint Juice contains neither blueberry nor acai.)
Joint Juice Supplement Drink. This was the original Joint Juice formula created by Dr. Stone. It is available in both 6 packs and 30 packs, and provides a convenient way to get your daily supply of glucosamine and chondroitin. Like the On the Go mix, Joint Juice supplies plenty of vitamin C and D to improve overall health. Available flavors: Cranberry-Pomegranate and Blueberry-Acai.
Joint Juice Easy Shot Supplement. Joint Juice Easy Shot is measured by the capful instead of the bottleful as it comes in more concentrated form. It can be taken on its own or combined with your favorite juice, water, or smoothie. Available flavor: Natural Citrus.
And then there’s this variation of Joint Juice Easy Shot still circulating the market, but it seems as though it has been discontinued from JointFlex.com’s site. . .
Joint Juice Easy Shot with Hyal-Joint. This formula offers the same ingredients as Joint Juice Easy Shot but with the extra addition of hyaluronic acid and collagen which helps restore joint mobility. Available flavor: Natural Citrus.
Most Joint Juice products share the two ingredients: glucosamine and chondroitin. The only differences between the products are the way you take them (one mixes with a water bottle, one comes pre-mixed, and the other is a concentrated spoonful).
Glucosamine HCL. Glucosamine provides the basic building blocks for repairing and restoring joints. It is naturally found in the human body in the fluid that surrounds the joints (synovial fluid), though it can be extracted from shellfish to be used as a supplement. Experts recommend taking 1500 mg of glucosamine daily to relieve arthritis, and Joint Juice provides that amount in each serving.
Chondroitin Sulfate . Chondroitin sulfate, like glucosamine, is commonly found in synovial fluid and may help rebuild damaged cartilage. Unlike glucosamine, chondroitin is extracted from cow cartilage and should be taken in 1000 to 1200 mg doses. Joint Juice only provides 200 mg doses of chondroitin per serving.
Green Tea Extract. This ingredient is unique to the On the Go drink mix. It offers antioxidants that eliminate toxins and free radicals, reducing oxidative stress on cells.
Hyaluronic Acid. This ingredient was featured in Easy Shot with Hyal-joint. It is unique in that it can attract and absorb 1000 times its own weight in water and other fluids. It provides cushion and protects the joints against damage.
Should You Be Worried About Side Effects?
Both glucosamine and chondroitin are considered safe to use on a regular basis, though they have been known to cause mild stomach pain, nausea, and diarrhea.
Consumers should note that glucosamine does present the risk of an allergic reaction, so do not take Joint Juice products if you are allergic to shellfish.
Each product comes with slightly different usage instructions:
• On the Go Drink Mix: Combine with 16 oz. water. Take one packet daily.*
• Joint Juice Supplement Drink: Drink one 8-oz bottle daily.*
• Easy Shot Supplement: Fill dosage cup to line. Take straight or combine with favorite drink or beverage.
*It is safe to drink more than one packet daily, but taking more will not enhance your results.
All products should be kept refrigerated to maintain freshness.
What About the Flavor?
Although there aren’t a lot of flavors available for Joint Juice products, most people report they enjoyed the taste.
According to BeatleBans1964 at Amazon.com, “The small bottles make for portability. It really is ideal for travel. It has a refreshing, fruit flavor and I like mine good and ice cold. I drink this in the morning and it works well for me. The glucosamine and chondroitin is a Godsend and my knees are up to speed!”
Sonicfan also shares, “A lot of powders and things that I have tried are really gross, but this stuff tastes good and seems to be doing what it says it will do. I already take a joint supplement, so a few days into taking joint juice I could already tell a difference. It may take longer if this is the only supplement you take. I would definitely recommend.”
Joint Juice is widely available both online and in stores across the country. Pricing varies depending on the supplement you choose and the size of the package.
If you order from JointJuice.com, you can find the following prices:
• Joint Juice On the Go: $21.99 for 30 packets

Who is Dr. Kevin Stone?
Dr. Kevin Stone is an Orthopedic Surgeon at the Stone Clinic and is the chairman of the Stone Research Foundation in San Francisco.
The clinic focuses primarily on treating knee and shoulder injuries as well as arthritis and joint pain.
According to StoneClinic.com, “He holds approximately 50 U.S. patents on novel inventions to improve healthcare.”
Additionally, he is the co-founder of ReGen Biologics, a publicly traded medical device company that focuses on meniscus regeneration. Stone invented the first collagen meniscus implant, which provided a regeneration template for the growth of new meniscus cartilage in human knees.
I’ve seen a lot of companies that tout doctor recommendations and endorsements, but more often than not, these doctors are fakes and frauds that have little to contribute to the product’s success.
However, I’m impressed with Dr. Stone’s medical history in joint and cartilage research, as well as his innovative ideas for improving medical health.
Drink it or Ditch it?
Assuming you like the flavor, Joint Juice seems like a reliable way to improve joint health and relieve joint pain. There are countless positive reviews about this product, and though it doesn’t work for everyone, the money-back guarantee makes it worth investigating.
