Find the Best Joint Supplement Relief With These Tips

7 minute read

Millions of people suffer from joint pain and discomfort every day. Inflammation and swelling causes redness, stiffness, and difficulty moving.

Joint pain can be debilitating at time and has a real impact on quality of life. With so many people suffering, joint health and natural supplements are a hot commodity. But how do you know which joint supplements to get?

The Motivating Factor: Money

If you are one of the millions that has sought joint relief, then you will be all too familiar with the options available when it comes to supplemental help. The problem is that with so many options, it can be challenging to decide which is the best one. And when it comes to joint health, you cannot compromise quality.

The manufacturers have one mission: to sell their product. This, unfortunately, results in competitive marketing and sales strategies designed for attracting buyers rather than accuracy. This means your joint health could end up paying the price for someone else’s bottom line.

With so many fraudulent options out there, it is important to know what to look for on the labels of quality joint supplements.

Keep It Real, Not Generic

Most labels of joint supplements will list a host of great ingredients. However, a long list of impressive names does not mean much. Having a large amount of ingredients is essentially useless if they are all poor quality.

To save money on production costs, manufacturers will use generic versions of ingredients. What they save on money, you lose in quality.

Quality does not necessarily have to be expensive, but you want to give your joints the best possible support. Not all the generic ingredients out there have been clinically tested, so it is not guaranteed that they will deliver pain relief.  

Studies have shown that clinically tested products are almost 300 times more effective than their generic counterparts.

When browsing through the labels of joint supplements, look for clinically tested, patented brands, such as the Longvida Optimized Curcumin found in 1MD’s Easy Flex.

When the ingredient is just listed as turmeric, chances are it is generic, which means you will be getting generic relief.

Big Numbers Don’t Matter

Many people are fooled into thinking that the bigger the dosage, the better quality or more effective the ingredient is. This is one of the most commonly used marketing ploys on the block.

When it comes to dosages, size really does not matter. We are fooled into thinking that the abnormally large dosage is beneficial when, in truth, it tells you that the quality of the ingredient is very low.

1800 milligrams of curcumin or turmeric may look impressive, but it will not guarantee joint relief. What the large number does tell you is that generic ingredients are being used, and you should move on to another product.

When the label shows a patented ingredient with a realistic dosage, like EasyFlex, you can be assured of quantity and quality. A truly quality ingredient will not require high dosages to be effective.

Don’t Let Familiarity Fool You

Many joint supplement labels play on a common misconception that chondroitin and glucosamine are excellent relievers of joint pain. They are one of the most common ingredients in joint health supplements, so people believe they must be beneficial.

According to recent studies, these two ingredients are not as effective as people think.

Studies on joint mobility have been stopped halfway through because participants complained that pain was getting worse. In these studies, both chondroitin and glucosamine were the agents used for treatment.

They have also been scientifically linked to diarrhea, drowsiness, headaches, and even glaucoma. The labels count on you recognizing a name and assuming the product is good quality.

What the labels forget to mention is that glucosamine is often derived from shellfish. For those individuals with allergies to fish, that might be important information.

Even better than that is getting a supplement with a label that doesn’t list that ingredient, so everyone is safe.

Remember that labels are to persuade you to buy a product, or at least the ones trying to make money are. The products that genuinely relieve joint pain and promote joint health don’t need to rely on marketing tactics, the ingredients will speak for themselves (as will the results).

Caramel Color Is Bad

A number of joint supplements on the market use natural caramel color for their soft gel capsules.

The name might say “natural,” but the ingredient is anything but. It is made with small amount of a potent chemical known as methylimidazole, which in large doses has been linked to seizures as well as the growth of tumors.

This caramel color may be made with small amounts, but over time the exposure to this dangerous chemical will be bigger than you realize. After hearing this, the vegetable cellulose capsule listed on the EasyFlex label sounds much more natural and appealing.

When you are taking a supplement, the last thing you want to see on an ingredient list is a chemical name you can barely pronounce.

The EasyFlex Difference

With all the supplements to choose from, making a decision can be difficult. Often the most eye-catching and sensational labels serve a purpose. That purpose is to hide the inferior ingredients with popular lingo and big numbers.

For joint health, the least complicated label will lead you to the highest quality product and the most effective relief.

The EasyFlex label lists three key ingredients, all of which are clinically tested, proven effective, and patented. The additional ingredients are all natural, and there are only realistic doses provided.

With EasyFlex, quality speaks for itself, so there is no need for a flashy label. You want quick and efficient pain relief, so you need a product with a label that gets right to the point.

The Bottom Line

Stiff, achy, and swollen joints can interfere with your daily activities and can slow down your life. The creation of joint health and joint pain supplements was likely music to your ears.

Without paying attention to the label, however, you could end up with a poor-quality product, worse joint pain, and no matter what music is playing, you will be on the bench. EasyFlex can give you happy joints, which means happy feet too.
