My Movexa Review (2019) – Is It A Scam?

It’s time for my Movexa review – a supplement designed to boost joint health.

Now – there are over 100 other similar supplements on the market.

So is Movexa any better? Or it’s just another scam?

It’s time to dig deep into this joint supplement.

Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on Movexa.

 

So Let’s Get To The Review


Full Name: Movexa by Eden Formulations

My Movexa Review (2019) - Is It A Scam?Versions: There’s only a 90 tablets bottle (which is the monthly supply).

But you can buy more bottles together – for a larger package.

Best Actual Price: $39 per bottle

Where To Buy It From: Only available on the official website (at this point).

Designed For: Joint support – according to its website:

  • relieves pain and discomfort
  • boost mobility and elasticity
  • repair lost cartilage

Shortly – it claims to help both inflammation and cartilage damage (which are 2 different things).

My Rating: 7 out of 10

Worth Buying?: Not really – even though it’s a quality supplement:

  • quite expensive
  • no authentic customer reviews

I personally would recommend a similar supplement that costs about $10 less.

But Movexa is surely not a scam or a weak product.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Really strong formula (high dosages)
  • Contains most of the essential ingredients for joint pain
  • Works for both inflammation and cartilage damage
  • No major side effects
  • Money back guarantee

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Schedule is a bit confusing (3 pills per day in the first months, then only 2)
  • No authentic reviews anywhere
  • Only available on the official website
  • Pretty overpriced
  • Shipping isn’t free (for the 1 bottle offer)

 

 

What Is Movexa? A Quick Overview


According to its official website – it’s a joint supplement designed to offer relief.

However – there are at least 100 products on the market claiming the same things.

So what makes Movexa different?

Here’s what it claims:

  1. It’s 100% natural.
  2. Doesn’t have any side effects.
  3. Has a 60 days money back guarantee.
  4. Offers a life free of pain.

Now – most supplements promise things of this kind. And lots of them can’t do much.

But that doesn’t mean that Movexa is one of them. 

So now that you know what it promises, it’s time to analyze it closely and see what it can do.

 


#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)


To be honest, Movexa’s formula looks pretty good:

  • high number of substances
  • classic ingredients
  • both anti-inflammatory and cartilage re-builders
  • dosages are pretty good

So it’s the kind of formula that should be effective for joint pain.

Now – I would divide these ingredients in 2 groups:

  1. Joint & Cartilage Boosters
  2. Vitamins + Minerals

So let’s take a quick look at each of them.


1. Joint & Cartilage Boosters

This group includes cartilage re-builders and anti-inflammatory. Both are effective for joint pain.

  1. Glucosamine Sulfate – the best substance for cartilage repair. [1]
  2. Chondroitin Sulfate – a similar effect to glucosamine, but it also increases its power.
  3. MSM – reduces inflammatory pain. [2]
  4. Green Lipped Sea Mussel – helpful for swollen joints. [3]
  5. Yuca Extract – can reduce pain in some cases.
  6. Devil’s Claw – it’s a very strong anti-inflammatory.
  7. Cetyl Myristoleate – lubricates the joints and improves flexibility. [4]

2. Vitamins + Minerals

This group of ingredients isn’t very helpful, if you ask me.

Even though they’re great for general health – they don’t have any major benefits in arthritis or joint pain.

Out of this list – the most important ones for joints are:

  1. Vitamins C – it’s an antioxidant and fights oxidative stress.
  2. Niacinamide – can reduce the severity of arthritis symptoms. [5]
  3. Zinc – helpful for general bone health.

As I said – these substances don’t have a major effect for arthritis.

That’s why I don’t consider them very important.


Conclusion

Movexa’s ingredients look pretty good:

  • potent formula
  • decent dosages

However – it’s mostly glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM and the herbs that do all the job.

The vitamins/minerals are pretty useless for joint pain.

So despite having 20 ingredients, about 7 are actually effective.

 


#2 – How To Take It (8 out of 10)


You’re curious about how these pills look like?

I will try to give you a better idea here – as much as I can.


1. Pills Facts

Firstly, I haven’t tried this supplement myself – so I can’t show you any photo of the pills.

But here’s what I could find about them:

  • pills come as tablets
  • average dimensions
  • you have to take them with plenty of water

Now – compared to gelatin pills, tablets are usually thicker.

This means swallowing them won’t be very easy. So that’s something you should keep in mind.


2. The Schedule

Here’s what Movexa’s website states:

  1. The recommended dose is 2 pills per day.
  2. In the first months, take 3 pills daily instead.
  3. Once your body gets used to it, you can continue with 2 pills/day.
  4. You can either take them together or separately.
  5. Also, it’s up to you at what time you take them.

So basically – it’s a bit harder in the first months, as 3 pills everyday isn’t very comfortable.

But once you get used to it – it should get easier.

Also, the label recommends taking the pills with/after eating.


Conclusion

Movexa’s pills are probably a bit harder to take (compared to others):

  • they’re tablets, not gelatin pills
  • you need to take 3 per day (in the first months)

So keep this in mind, in case you want to order it.

 


#3 – Results (7 out of 10)


As I said before – I’m not a Movexa customer.

So I can’t speak from experience about how it worked for me.

However – I tried to find other customers’ opinions, so that I provide an unbiased review.

Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not general ones.


1. What People Say

First of all – I had a very hard time finding reviews on Movexa:

  • there were no Amazon reviews (it’s discontinued there)
  • most reviews about it were general (not based on experience)

Now – the only place where I could find some reviews was its official website.

However, I tend to ignore those reviews (they’re usually fake and biased):

  1. All reviewers gave it 5 stars (out of 5).
  2. There were only praises about the product.
  3. All reviews looked very similar.
  4. No way to leave your own review.

So I personally don’t trust the reviews from Movexa’s official website.

But I couldn’t find any others – so I can’t give any verdict about this supplement.


Conclusion

There are very few authentic opinion on Movexa:

  • reviews exist only on the official website
  • they all praise the product
  • they’re most likely biased

That’s why I wouldn’t trust these reviews – if I were to buy this supplement.

Considering there are no authentic reviews about it, I don’t think it’s such an amazing product (as it claims).

 


#4 – Price (6 out of 10)


In my opinion – Movexa is too overpriced for what it offers.

It surely has a strong formula – but there are similar products for less money.


1. The Exact Price

I checked out several websites to find out the best price for Movexa:

  1. It costs least on its official website.
  2. Price is $39 per bottle.
  3. Shipping expenses are also almost $6 (not included).
  4. Price decreases if you buy more bottles at once.
  5. For more than 1 bottle, shipping is also free.

Now – I couldn’t afford paying $40 on a joint supplement. At least not on the long term. 

Movexa is surely a good supplement.

But considering the formula it has – you can get something similar for less money.

That’s why I personally wouldn’t recommend it.


2. Competitors’ Price

I will only compare Movexa with my #1 recommended joint supplement (ProJoint Plus):

  1. M costs $39 per bottle, P costs $29.
  2. Formula is pretty good in both.
  3. Both offer a discount when buying more bottles together.
  4. In this way, you can get M for $29 per bottle and P for $19.

So in my opinion, ProJoint Plus is a much better deal overall.

That’s why it’s my #1 recommendation.

Now – it’s true that Movexa has a lot more ingredients in its formula.

But it’s actually just an illusion:

  • it contains more than 50% vitamins
  • these don’t help the joints too much
  • glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM and the herbs are the essential ingredients
  • they all exist in ProJoint Plus as well

So basically –  all that Movexa has additionally are vitamins and minerals (which aren’t very useful).

That’s why I prefer to pay $10 less on ProJoint Plus and get about the same formula.


Conclusion

Movexa is quite overpriced for what it contains.

Now – it’s surely not the most expensive supplement ever.

But you can get about the same formula for $10 less – if you choose another product.

So Movexa isn’t the cheapest option you have – that’s why I wouldn’t really recommend it.

 

 


#5 – Where To Find It (5 out of 10)


Despite doing a long research – I couldn’t find Movexa in too many sellers:

  1. My Movexa Review (2019) - Is It A Scam?Not available on Amazon. 
  2. Only sold by 1 person on Ebay.
  3. The only place where I could find it was its website.

Now – from what I understood, it was discontinued from Amazon a few years ago.

This usually means Amazon had some issues with the company (regarding product quality, etc.).

So that’s surely not a positive thing.

However – getting back to the story, if you want to buy Movexa, you can only order it from its own website:

  • price is about $40 per bottle
  • you get a discount for buying a larger pack
  • they also have a money back guarantee

So even though I haven’t placed an order myself – I don’t think the website is dangerous.

Plus – it sells some other supplements besides this one.

So at this point, it remains the only option for buying Movexa.

 


#6 – FAQs


Coming up – I will try to answer the most common questions about Movexa.


1. How many pills per day?

It’s a bit more complicated than with other supplements:

  • you need to take 3 pills/day in the first months
  • later on, you can cut the dose to 2 per day

2. How long lasts 1 bottle?

30 days – it’s exactly the monthly supply.

If you want to buy the quantity for more months, there are 2 or 3 bottles packs.


3. Can I take it with other drugs?

Normally – you should be able to.

But I recommend asking your doctor first, especially if you have a chronic condition that requires a constant treatment. 

Movexa contains many vitamins – which can interact with certain drugs.

That’s why it’s safer to ask your doctor’s opinion first.


4. Are there any side effects?

I couldn’t find anything in the few reviews I read. Also, the label doesn’t mention anything.

But just like other joint supplements, you might experience:

  • nausea and vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • stomach pain

However – these side effects are extremely rare. 

You can also avoid them by taking the pills with or after eating.


5. How long should I notice an effect?

The official website claims you should see an improvement in 30 days.

This sounds like a bit too fast to work for everyone, though.

 


#7 – Final Conclusions


Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on Movexa (in 3 ideas).


1. Great Formula

In my opinion – this supplement has some really good ingredients:

  • essential substances for joint pain
  • pretty good dosages
  • strong formula

As I said – out of its 20 ingredients, only about 7 are really effective.

The other ones (vitamins + minerals) don’t really do much.

But at least they make the ingredient list look longer (and more potent).


2. No Real Reviews

That was a major problem for me:

  • Movexa has no reviews on Amazon
  • there are no authentic reviews on other websites
  • only its official page has lots of reviews

But I wouldn’t recommend counting on the reviews from any product’s website.

They tend to be biased and make the product look amazing (when it’s not).


3. Quite Expensive

At $39 per bottle, Movexa isn’t the priciest supplement ever.

However – it’s more expensive than it’s worth it (if you ask me):

  • there are other similar formulas on the market
  • some cost even $10 less

So I would recommend going for a cheaper alternative. If you afford Movexa, it’s totally fine.

But if you want to save some money, choose something that contains about the same – for less money.

 

 


My Verdict – Is Movexa A Scam?


Short answer: Definitely not – it’s a very legit product.

My Movexa Review (2019) - Is It A Scam?But if I were to choose about recommending it or not – I wouldn’t:

  1. No authentic reviews available anywhere.
  2. You can only find in on its official website.
  3. Too expensive for the formula.

I’m sure it’s a product that works (even though I haven’t tried it).

But since there’s no authentic info about it – I don’t trust it so much.

Plus – it’s not the best choice in terms of price.

That’s why I prefer to go for a supplement that contains about the same, works really good and costs $10 less.

If you prefer Movexa – it’s your own choice. I prefer to save some money instead (even if it’s just $10).

    Have been using Movexa supplement for 2 months now and I don’t feel any relief. I have psoriasis, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome all together. Was hoping this product could help but it’s not really the case. Do you know if I can get a refund for 100%? I know they say so but many shady companies don’t actually agree to refund you once you opened/finished the product. And I’ve also been meaning to ask, do you think your top recommended supplement could help more? I’m asking with regard to my conditions and thank you.

  2. Heather Pharm.D. says:

    Hi Joseph. First of all, I’m not surprised Movexa wasn’t very effective for you. It’s a supplement designed to treat and repair cartilage damage – that’s why it contains glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM. 

    You have psoriatic arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome – which are both inflammatory joint problems. So your pain is caused by inflammation. When it comes to Movexa, it’s more helpful for pain caused by cartilage damage (and osteoarthritis).

    That’s not the case in your conditions, which are mostly caused by inflammation. You probably have very little cartilage damage, which is insignificant. That’s why these pills didn’t help. It’s true that they do contain some ant-inflammatory substances, but these are not strong enough.

    Since you have 2 inflammatory conditions, you need a strong anti-inflammatory. So the best choice for your problem are turmeric supplements. Turmeric is the best natural anti-inflammatory and it has very few side effects. That’s why lots of people prefer it over NSAIDs.

    Now – there are lots of turmeric supplements on the market. But I’m not the kind of person that would afford a lot of monthly expenses on supplements. That’s why my top recommendation is an affordable supplement. Out of the products I tried, this is the cheapest one that worked well for me. That’s why I recommend it.

    But it’s not all about supplements. I have a guide on treating PsA naturally – you should find a lot of useful tips and joint pain hacks there. Also, diet is important – but by this I mean choosing the right foods, not following a strict regime or something like this.

    I really hope this helps. If you have any other questions or you need some advice, please let me know.

  3. Norman Dover says:

    Hi Heather, Movexa helped my knee pain but I finished the pills faster than I predicted. I took them as the bottle recommended, which is 3 in the first month and then 2. I bought 3 bottles at once, which was supposed to be the 90 days supply because I assumed they would automatically send you a larger bottle for the first month. I even mentioned I was a first time customer… 

    So the 3 bottles actually lasted about 2 months and a bit. That’s less than I anticipated and I don’t have the money to order until next month (which is almost 30 days apart). So in the meantime I don’t want to stay without any pills. What do you suggest used meanwhile? I want to go back to Movexa after July 1st.

  4. Heather Pharm.D. says:

    Hi Norman, thanks for sharing your experience with Movexa. I totally understand your problem – and it’s a thing I mentioned in my review. The label recommends taking 3 pills in the first months, but the bottles still contain 60 pills (which isn’t enough for 30 days, only for 20). 

    So you would have to research this supplement really well before buying it. 

    Now regarding your question, here’s what I recommend:

    Either order Movexa now (by borrowing some money or I don’t know) or wait until you have enough money and don’t take anything in the meantime.

    Basically, there’s no point switching to another supplement for 30 days. Joint products usually need about 30 days (or more) to start working. So if you used another one for just 30 days, it would be useless. You would have to continue to use it even afterwards, instead of switching to Movexa.

    So it’s all up to you. 

    #1. If you decide to use another supplement, my advice is to use it for more than 30 days. So you would give up Movexa and continue to use the other one instead. There are lots of quality joint supplements and some have much better prices. So that’s the option I would choose, if I were you.

    #2. You can choose not to use anything until you afford ordering Movexa. Then you continue to use it just like before. But keep in mind that the price is higher for this supplement (than for others), so you might end up in the same situation at one point.

    If you choose the second option, you might experience some pain until you restart using Movexa. You can use NSAIDs, turmeric or other herbs good for joint pain in this period.

    So choose what’s best for you. Hope this helps!

    Hello Heather, I’m looking for a quality supplement for my mother. She has osteoarthritis with pain in her right hip and knee, with not much cartilage left in both. Her doctor recommends hip replacement first but she doesn’t want to hear about it. She’s also very skinny so we’re not sure should could handle the recovery post-surgery.

    I was looking into glucosamine supplements and Movexa is one of the options from my list. I have also checked ProJoint Plus, as it’s been recommended by some family friends who are using it. PJP seems a little more affordable but it doesn’t vitamins and minerals, which Movexa does have. You said they’re not very helpful for joint pain, but I think they would benefit my mom, as she’s very weak. What do you think?

  6. Heather Pharm.D. says:

    Hi Adele, thanks for your question. 

    Normally, I would probably recommend ProJoint Plus to your mom – because as you could see from my review, the extra vitamins from Movexa aren’t really helpful for the joints.

    However, given her general condition – I think Movexa is a better choice. It has a very similar formula to ProJoint Plus, which means it will work for her arthritis. But the extra vitamins it has could strengthen her body and improve her overall health a bit. So your way of thinking was very correct, congratulations!

    Those vitamins are worth the extra $10 you pay on Movexa.

    I also want to give you some extra tips for your mom:

    1. Make sure she stays hydrated and doesn’t smoke or consume any alcohol.

    2. Certain foods can help osteoarthritis, because they’re rich in antioxidants. She should consume them as often as possible (at least one daily).

    3. CBD oil is an excellent pain reliever, but make sure you apply it on your mom’s skin. At her age, it can be dangerous when taken by mouth.

    4. For a fast pain relief, creams are pretty good. Just keep in mind that they don’t treat the real cause of pain, just the symptoms. That’s why I don’t recommend using them alone.

    5. Green tea is also an excellent remedy for arthritis, but not alone. However, adding it in your mom’s diet can’t harm at all.

    Hope this helps.
