My Arthri D3 Review – Scam Or Not?

My Arthri D3 Review - Scam Or Not?

It’s time for my Arthri D3 review – a joint supplement you surely saw advertised on TV. 

But in my opinion, things don’t look too good about it:

  • extremely expensive ($115 per one month bottle)
  • the ingredients aren’t amazing
  • lots of negative reviews

As I said – Arthri D3 is a very advertised product. And most supplements are advertised because very few people buy them otherwise. 

So is Arthri D3 from this category as well? Can it do anything for the joints – or it’s just another scam?

I tried to dig deep into this product so here’s what I found out.

Note: This review is based on my opinion about this supplement – so it doesn’t contain only general info. I’m not trying to praise/ criticize the product or its company, I am simply telling what I think about it.


So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: Arthri D3 from CalComp Nutrition

My Arthri D3 Review - Scam Or Not?Quantity: 120 capsules (1 month supply)

Best Actual Price: $115.94

Where You Can It From: I only found it available on the official website.

It’s discontinued on Amazon, and (which seems really weird to me).

Designed For: Joint problems and arthritis.

However – it doesn’t mention what kind of problem it could help more (which is essential):

  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • osteoarthritis
  • chronic joint pain

That’s another warning sign for me. Supplements that claim to help every form of joint pain usually don’t help any.

My Rating: 2 out of 10 – It’s really weak for the money.

Worth Buying?: Definitely not, it’s way too expensive.

Plus, it doesn’t help the joints too much – I think it works better for bone health (judging after its ingredients).

It has many negative reviews, pretty weak ingredients and it costs way too much – so I couldn’t possibly recommend it. If you want something that really works, you can get a much cheaper product.


What I Liked About It

  • Good ingredients inside the Proprietary Blend (though in low doses probably)
  • Probably works better for bone health


What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Weak ingredients for joint pain (vitamin C, D, magnesium)
  • No doses for the Proprietary Blend’s substances
  • Extremely expensive ($115 per bottle)
  • You need to take 4 pills per day – which is a lot
  • One bottle only lasts for 1 month
  • Lots of negative reviews
  • The official website has very little info
  • It’s discontinued on retailers like Amazon or Ebay




Arthri D3 – A Quick Overview

Here are the main features of this supplement:

  • My Arthri D3 Review - Scam Or Not?it’s a joint pain supplement
  • contains Vitamin D and N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine
  • it’s the only product containing this formula

Now – an unique formula doesn’t always mean a good thing.

So I personally doubt Arthri D3, because its ingredients don’t seem right for a joint supplement – in my opinion.

However, it’s a very advertised product – which can mean 2 things:

  1. Either it’s extremely good and people are very interested in it.
  2. Or it’s very weak and they have few customers, so they need advertising.

And to be honest, I tend to believe the second thing. 

But I don’t mean to criticize Arthri D3 before I know all the facts – so let’s move on to the real review, starting with its ingredients.



The Ingredients – Not The Typical Stuff

As you can tell by its name – Arthri D3 is based on vitamin D. For this reason, it doesn’t look like a joint supplement – that’s what I think.

But let’s take a closer look at each of its 4 major ingredients.

My Arthri D3 Review - Scam Or Not?

1. Vitamin C (7 mg) – this vitamin doesn’t helps the joints too much:

  • it’s an antioxidant
  • it boosts immunity

2. Vitamin D (1000 UI) – as I said, vitamin D is more of a “bone health” remedy. 

It has very little benefits for joints alone – according to recent studies:

  • a deficiency may cause joint and muscle pain
  • in this case, vitamin D can decrease the pain
  • but for arthritis or chronic joint pain, it has no major effects

Besides, 1000 UI is a huge dose – 250% of the daily value. If you don’t have a deficiency, I wouldn’t recommend taking such a high quantity for no real reason.

3. Magnesium (40 mg) – this ingredient is also not very important for the joints.

It can help muscular crams, but only if they’re caused by a lack of magnesium (this product is the best example).

4. Proprietary Blend (960 mg) – this ingredient sounds really promising, but it has one major problem:

  • it doesn’t mention the exact doses for each substance inside
  • the ingredients are only stated briefly

So you can’t really tell if the ingredients have decent doses – which is essential for every joint supplement. 

Other than that, the substances inside this proprietary blend are pretty good: N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine, Chondroitin Sulfate, Turmeric, Rice Flour, Boswellia Serrata, etc.



3 Conclusions On The Ingredients

#1. Weak For Joint Pain – considering its ingredients, Arthri D3 doesn’t look like a quality product for the joints:

  • Vitamins C and D don’t help joint pain
  • Magnesium only helps if you have a deficiency (which is very unlikely)
  • The Proprietary Blend has too low doses to be effective

So judging after what it contains, I would surely not recommend Arthri D3 for someone suffering from joint problems.

#2. NAG Isn’t So Effective – this ingredient is a particularity of Arthri D3.

I haven’t seen it in many other products – maybe because of this:

  • it’s a really expensive form of glucosamine

Now – glucosamine is one of the best ingredients for arthritis. But in this case, I doubt it’s going to help as much as usual:

  • no doses mentioned

Glucosamine usually needs at least 1000 mg to be really effective. So when a supplement hides the doses, it’s usually because they are lower than in most products.

#3. Low Doses For The Blend – as I said, the Proprietary Blend was the only ingredient that could really help.

But after seeing the label, I pretty much doubt:

  • there are no exact doses for each ingredient
  • the overall dose is 960 mg
  • on an average, this means there are less than 100 mg from each substance (there are 11 in total)
  • that is way too little to help joint pain

Overall: I don’t have a good opinion at all about Arthri D3 – considering its ingredients.

To me, it looks more of a bone supplement than a joint one. So I doubt it’s could help arthritis or joint problems too much.




My Experience With Arthri D3

The thing is – I haven’t tried Arthri D3 personally, but I tried several products that were extremely similar.

My Arthri D3 Review - Scam Or Not?So I think I can get an idea about a supplement just by analyzing it closely.

Now – I didn’t actually buy Arthri D3 for several reasons:

  • extremely expensive
  • I would have to spend $115 for one bottle
  • I tried these ingredients in the past, without much success

But as I said, based on my experience with over 100 joint products – I think I can make a good opinion on Arthris D3 even without trying it. 

So here’s what I think:

  1. It can’t relieve arthritis pain completely (not even partially, in my opinion).
  2. Its ingredients are too weak to work on the long term for joint pain.
  3. At most, it can help for prevention.
  4. On the other hand, it can really help bone health.
  5. That’s because of the high doses of vitamin D it contains.
  6. But if you don’t have any bone problems, I wouldn’t recommend it either (very high doses of vitamin D).

Overall, I doubt Arthri D3 could help much. In my opinion, it’s just an overrated joint supplement – mostly because of all that advertising.

But in reality, it can’t really do much. 

If you don’t believe me – you can check out the hundreds of negative reviews and complaints I found about it. For me, that speaks for itself.

But that’s not all. In the following lines, I will show you 5 big downsides of Arthri D3 that you can’t find listed anywhere else (besides the ingredients).

I noticed them while researching this supplement.



Problem #1 – 4 Pills Per Day

No matter how good one supplement was – if it requires more than 3 pills per day, it’s already a problem.

My Arthri D3 Review - Scam Or Not?So here’s the thing about Arthri D3:

  • one bottle contains 120 capsules
  • this is enough for only 30 days
  • you need to take 4 pills per day
  • they recommend taking 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening

Honestly, that is a lot! I couldn’t really recommend a supplement that requires so many pills:

  • it’s really uncomfortable
  • there’s a high risk that you forget about a dose
  • all the pills you take get in your liver
  • so obviously, your liver is going to suffer on the long term

The thing is – if you were only taking Arthri D3, it was fine. But most people have a prescribed treatment – which is usually pills.

Some also take 1 or 2 other supplements. So you will surely be taking more than those 4 pills of Arthri D3.

That’s why such a high number can cause you problems after a couple of years.



Problem #2 – Super Expensive

To be honest, Arthri D3 is among the top 3 most expensive joint supplements I’ve seen. 

That’s actually the reason why I did not buy it myself. In my opinion, the offer is really tricky:

  • you have to pay $115 per bottle at this point
  • the price used to be cheaper ($100), but it increased recently
  • though it contains 120 capsules, one bottle is enough for just one month
  • so $115 is basically the price for a monthly supply

Now tell me that’s not extremely expensive.

My Arthri D3 Review - Scam Or Not?

Plus, you’re paying this little fortune for a supplement that contains some pretty basic stuff – in my opinion:

  • there’s only the NAG that you can’t find so easily
  • that’s because it’sa more expensive form of glucosamine
  • but all the other ingredients are pretty cheap alone

So why would you spend $115 to get some basic stuff in low doses – when you can get each separately for way less money?

In my opinion, paying so much on Arthi D3 simply doesn’t make any sense. So now matter how good it was, I still couldn’t recommend a product that literally costs a fortune.




Problem #3 – Very Little Info

The thing is – while I was searching for a place to buy Arthri D3, I had a hard time finding the official website.

At one point, I even thought there wasn’t any. 

But in the end, I managed to find it – so here’s what I can say about it:

  1. There’s very little info about the product itself (just general benefits of the ingredients)
  2. I couldn’t find anything about the company
  3. There’s only a phone number and a contact email
  4. There are some studies mentioned, but there’s no link to any
  5. I couldn’t find any picture of the back label
  6. The doses aren’t mentioned at all

So honestly, I was pretty disappointed after checking out their official website. 

I’m familiar with this kind of websites, and most of the times – their products were scams (meaning that they didn’t work too well).

I can’t tell about Arthri D3 for sure.

But the fact that there’s very little info on the company and the product itself – to me, that’s a sign that Arthi D3 isn’t 100% legit. 



Problem #4 – Discontinued On Many Retailers

That’s something that made me question Arthri D3 a lot. 

So here’s the thing:

  • Amazon used to sell this supplement 
  • It has a page on Amazon’s website
  • But when you access it, you get a message with “Page not found”
  • If you search “Arthi D3” on Amazon, you get other supplements

Now – that’s just on Amazon. I found it’s also discontinued on other websites that used to sell it, like: 

  • Lucky Vitamins
  • Best Deals
  • Even lots of sellers from Ebay stopped selling it

To me, that sounds pretty weird. It’s the first supplement I see discontinued on so many websites.

And the thing is – there are so many supplements that are really not effective.

They have lots of negative reviews from unsatisfied customers and they’re still sold on Amazon, Ebay and the other websites.

So the fact that Arthri D3 is discontinued but still sold on the official website make me thing twice. There’s clearly something not right behind.



Problem #5 – Negative Reviews

As I said, I haven’t personally tried Arthri D3. But judging after all the bad reviews it has, I’m glad I didn’t.

So here’s what I found out about it:

  • some people complained it’s not effective at all
  • others said they paid all these money to get no effect
  • there were also some who received extra bottles without ordering them
  • some were automatically put on auto-shipping (without requesting it)
  • others simply requested a refund, but they didn’t get it (though the company doesn’t claim to refund you)

Basically – most of the reviews I found were negative. Very few people were satisfied. 

So to me, that’s the biggest proof that Arthri D3 isn’t effective – at least not for joint pain. 

I wouldn’t call it a scam – since you receive the actual product. If it was a scam, they would only take away your money for nothing. 

But at this price, it’s certainly not far from a scam – that’s why I would advise you to stay away from it.




My Verdict – Is Arthri D3 Worth Buying?

Short answer: Definitely not. Considering how expensive it is, it has some major problems:

  • My Arthri D3 Review - Scam Or Not?weak ingredients for joint pain
  • a lot of negative reviews
  • very little info about the company and the product itself
  • it doesn’t really help

I would honestly say that Arthi D3 works much better for bone health than for joint problems:

  • vitamin D and magnesium are more helpful for bones
  • so it might better work for that

However, I wouldn’t pay $115 per bottle even if it was the best product ever. So for the amount of money it costs, it’s extremely weak.

Therefore, I would advise you to stay away from Arthri D3 – as long as you don’t want to spend $115 in vain.

You can get a much better joint supplement for less than $30 – and it really works, not just on paper.

So it’s up to you what you decide, but I wouldn’t really buy Arthri D3 – not today, nor in the future.

    It’s a scam, i tried it for 1 month and then they send me another bottle and took money from my credit card all alone. i asked for a refund but they said i signed for the 3 months delivery supply, which i did not. i would have remembered for sure. i will contact police because at least they will not charge me another $100 next month. arthri d3 is a scam, i tell you for sure because i tried it. i don’t care if the pills work or not, they just don’t have the right to charge me without my own consent. 

  2. Heather says:

    Hey Mike, sorry to hear you had such a terrible experience with Arthri D3. 

    Even if you signed up for 3 months, they should have still let you cancel and refund you – assuming you didn’t open the second bottle (which you probably didn’t). 

    I’m not sure if speaking with the police would help. If you really signed up (even by mistake), it means you agreed so they can’t do much. But sure, you can try – maybe they can do something about it and you can get at least part of your money back. 

    Thanks for letting me know your opinion about Arthri D3.

  3. John says:

    Wow, Arthri D3 doesn’t seem like a great supplement at all. I saw its ad yesterday and been trying to find out some background about it ever since, for my dad. Funny fact, they didn’t mention it’s so expensive in the ads. 

    Yours is the first review I read, so I really appreciate experience. 

    How can they charge that and make you have to take it 4 times a day? Sounds like they are just after your money.

    It also says something if all those retailers have removed it from sale. My dad suffers from arthritis, I will point him in the direction of your recommended product, it sounds much better for the price. Thanks

  4. Heather says:

    Hello John, I don’t know the exact ad of Arthri D3 but I do know it’s very advertised. That explains a lot, if you ask me – it’s not able to sell for itself, considering the price. 

    But yes, it’s obvious they’re not going to state the price there – otherwise I think they would lose all potential customers, right?

    So I would surely not recommend Arthri D3 – or any product over $45 per month.

    You didn’t mention what kind of arthritis your dad has – but it’s most likely osteoarthritis. It comes up due to injuries or aging and it’s the most common.

    So in this case, ProJoint Plus is the best alternative for him. It’s the best supplement for OA I know – so it should really help him.
