We Only Use Top Quality Ingredients
Joint Aid Plus™ is 100% natural and we use nothing less than the best ingredients! Joint Aid Plus™ is the most complete joint remedy available today. Most joint products only contain a few ingredients because it would cost too much to formulate a product as complete as Joint Aid Plus™.
Many companies use herbal pain relievers. We believe these natural herbal pain relievers may help relieve the pain in the short term but they do not fix the problem, they just mask the symptoms. Joint Aid Plus™ is designed to repair damage and maintain joint integrity, not cover up symptoms.
A Cautionary Note About “Proprietary Blends or Formulas”
It is impossible to adequately compare and analyze ”proprietary blend/formula” joint products. A proprietary blend is some mixture of the ingredients stated in the blend. The only thing the label shows is the total amount of blend. For example, they may state that each pill contains 800mg of a proprietary blend which contains; Glucosamine, Tumeric, and MSM. All three of the ingredients in this example cost the company different amounts from the manufacturer. For example, on average, Glucosamine cost 5 times as much as MSM per mg from the manufacturer. All of this aside, if their product is that good, then why not state exactly what’s in it on the label? It’s easy to hide the true value of a product by listing the ingredients in a proprietary blend.
Proprietary blends can be misleading. So when considering any nutritional product that states a proprietary blend, ask for a copy of the certificate of analysis that comes from the lab. Don’t be misled; take a look for yourself and see how our product stands up next to others sold nationwide. We believe ours is superior in several ways; quality, results, and particularly value.

Also proven in a double-blind, placebo controlled study to improve knee pain, stiffness, and loss of function in patients with chronic osteoarthritis of the knee; greater ease of movement while walking and climbing stairs was reported.
