My Arthrozene Review – Is It A Scam? (2020)
It’s time for my Arthrozene review – a joint supplement that looks a bit suspicious to me:
- Claims to work in only 5 days
- One bottle costs almost $60
But despite the high price, Arthrozene is pretty popular.
So does it work for real? At $60 per bottle, it has high chances to be a scam.
Well, I tried it out myself – so in this review, I want to show you all the hidden facts about Arthrozene (experience based).
Note: This review is based on my experience with this supplement, so it’s not the typical review with general info. I’m not trying to praise/criticize this product or its company – I am simply telling my opinion about it.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Arthrozene by Fisico
Quantity : 30 capsules
Best Actual Price: $59.25
Where I Bought It From: Ebay, but you can also find it on Amazon
Designed For: Joint pain in general. It contains:
- 1 anti-inflammatory
- 2 collagen-like substances
So it can work for both inflammation and joint damage – on paper (I will explain you later on why I’m saying this).
My Rating: 5 out of 10 – I would rate it lower normally, but I received some positive feedback about it (which made me change my mind).
Worth Buying?: Definitely not – if you ask me.
There are several things I can’t ignore:
- absolutely huge price
- ingredients aren’t the most amazing
- in my case – it didn’t help too much
- I found more negative reviews than usual
So it’s definitely not a product I would recommend – despite being pretty popular. I prefer using a better formula for $30 less.
What I Liked About It
- Only one pill per day
- They have a research page on their website
- Available on several websites and retailers
- You can find many authentic reviews about it all over the Internet (but many are negative)
What I Didn’t Like About It
- Pretty weak formula (my opinion)
- Not very high doses
- Didn’t relieve my pain too well
- My joint flexibility also didn’t get any better
- It didn’t work in 5 days, as it claimed (fake promises?)
- Extremely expensive for what it offers and for what it contains
Arthrozene – A Quick Overview
Fisico’s product Arthrozene is meant to treat any kind of joint pain.
However, it claims to work faster than any other supplement I’ve tried (5 days):
- in my case, it didn’t
- also, its overall effect wasn’t very impressive
Now – it wasn’t only me.
Many of the reviews I found about it were rather negative – so there are some other unsatisfied people.
Considering Arthrozene costs around $60 per month, it makes sense.
So it’s not a product I would recommend, mostly because of its very high price.
Also, its effect wasn’t amazing – so I think there are better choice for the money.
#1. What Is Arthrozene?
Shortly – it’s a joint supplement designed for both inflammation and pain.
But according to the label, it’s a “next generation joint pain solution”.
Why? Here’s what it claims:
- Relieves joint pain in as little as 5 days.
- Increases flexibility and mobility.
- Decreases discomfort and stiffness.
Now – the last 2 things are realistic. But I don’t know any product that can work in 5 days.
That’s the reason why I don’t trust Arthrozene – if it worked so fast, everyone would be using it. So joint pain wouldn’t exist anymore.
However – that’s not really the case.
But let me show you why I don’t recommend Arthrozene.
#2 – What It Claims
In my opinion, that’s what Arthrozene’s problem is.
It has some very high promises. Too high for what it can do, if you ask me.
So here’s what it claims about its ingredients:
- They are “next level”
- They relieve joint pain in 5 days (at most)
Now – these ingredients aren’t terrible. They don’t look too good, but they’re surely not bad.
However, to me – these claims are way too big for these ingredients. I mean, I’m familiar with collagen and Boswellia and they never relieved my pain so fast.
That’s why I can’t really believe these claims.
But before I get to the part where I tested out the pills – let’s take a closer look at each ingredients.
#3. Ingredients (8 out of 10)
Before I start, I only want to mention one thing:
- Each ingredient is a registered trademark of a certain brand (not Arthrozene).
- So it’s not the original ingredient – but a slightly different version.
- However, it has better proprieties than the original.
So Arthrozene’s ingredients are better than the original forms.
1. ApresFlex Boswellia Serrata Extract (100 mg) – it’s the anti-inflammatory.
Boswellia is great at reducing the swelling. After turmeric – it’s probably the strongest one .
Regarding the dose:
- 100 mg doesn’t seem like a huge concentration
- however, this is a trademark extract
So 100 mg of ApresFlex should work better than 100 mg of regular Boswellia extract.
2. Mobilee Natural Chicken Comb Extract (80 mg) – this ingredient is actually a combination of 3 substances :
- Hyaluronic acid (60%)
- Collagen type II (5%)
- Glucosaminoglycans (10%)
Now – the last 2 are great for damaged cartilages (but the dose is really low).
On the other hand, hyaluronic acid isn’t very useful. It works great when injected directly into the joints.
But here’s the tricky part:
- you need about 200 mg orally (to get a good effect) 
- here you have around 55 mg – which is surely not enough
3. B-2Cool Native Collagen Type II (40 mg) – that’s an ingredient that I really like. 
Collagen is designed for unhealthy cartilages.
However, in my case it never helped a lot – so I consider it a supportive ingredient.
#4 – How To Take It (8.50 out of 10)
Arthrozene is really good at this chapter,
1. The Pills – They’re not the smallest I’ve seen, but it could be worse:
- average to large dimensions
- a bit hard to to swallow
So basically – Arthrozene’s capsules are a bit big, but not as large as Osteo Bi-Flex, for example.
Swallowing them isn’t impossible, but it’s harder than for most pills.
2. The Schedule – Compared to other supplements, Arthrozene only requires 1 pills per day.
Here’s why I see this as an advantage:
- You don’t risk to forget about one of the pills
- More comfortable
- You don’t need to space out any doses
So that’s the only chapter where Arthrozone gets a green point from me.
#5. My Background
1. My Problems – As you might know, I’m lucky enough to have both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.
I’ve had RA for a long time and my OA came up as a complication. Because of RA, my knee cartilages started to wear off.
So I basically have osteoarthritis in my knees.
2. My RA – This one was bothering me most:
- my pain was terrible sometimes (6 on the pain scale)
- I woke up with stiff hands every morning
- the pain was worst in my hands and elbows
3. My OA – On the other hand, my knees weren’t in so much pain. Instead:
- they lost flexibility
- I had a hard time moving around
So Arthrozene seemed like it could help both conditions:
- it has Boswellia – that could decrease my inflammation
- it had Collagen – that could increase my flexibility
But that was only on paper – because in reality, it was pretty different.
#6. My Results (7 out of 10)
1. How It Worked – Just like I somehow expected, Arthrozene didn’t work really well for me.
I didn’t reduce my pain considerably:
- My hand pain didn’t decrease significantly in one month.
- I still woke up with stiff joints – and it didn’t go away faster.
- Most of my joints were still pretty swollen.
- My knee mobility didn’t improve.
- I was still in pain most about 75% of time.
To give you a number, I could say my pain went from a 6 to about a 4 (at most).
That’s not amazing – especially for a $60 supplement.
2. My Conclusions – So was there an improvement? To be honest, no major one.
Do I know the reasons? In my opinion, it’s because of this:
- low doses
- ingredients aren’t very powerful
Besides – this supplement claims that it works in 5 days at most. Well, that was surely not my case.
I took the whole bottle (one month) and didn’t feel any relief.
So I really lost my trust in this product – if I ever had any. In my case, it was close to a scam.
Therefore, I would surely not recommend it (especially because it’s so expensive). You can get something even better for about $30 less.
#7 – Other Opinions (6 out of 10)
The best part is that I could find many reviews on Arthrozene.
So instead of counting on my own opinion – I will try to include the most relevant reviews I found.
Note: I only considered the opinions that looked authentic, not the general ones.
1. Positive Reviews – unfortunately, there weren’t a lot.
But here’s what satisfied customers said about Arthrozene:
- It really helps with stiffness.
- Some say they can now bend their knees much better.
- Others say their pain is much better now.
2. Negative Reviews – these were the majority I found.
So here’s what most were complaining about:
- Price – they said it’s extremely expensive for how it works.
- Effect – many people weren’t satisfied even after several weeks.
- Claims – some said it does work, but surely not in 5 days (as it promises).
- Side Effects – a few people complained about getting diarrhea.
So one thing is sure – many people didn’t love Arthrozene. It was mostly because of its super expensive price.
And to be honest, I totally understand that.
Who would be happy about spending $60 on a product that claims to make miracles – and get no effect instead?
Note: There were enough people that were satisfied about it, so it’s not all negative. But it’s simply very expensive – that was the major complaint.
#8 – Price (2 out of 10)
For what it does, Arthrozene is extremely expensive.
1. The Exact Price – it depends a lot where you buy it from.
Now – Arthrozene is available in several retailers. But there are 2 best places to buy it from:
- Amazon – the price varies daily, but it’s around $60 (+ free shipping)
- Official website – it costs $50 plus +$6 shipping
So basically – the price from the official website can be better than Amazon.
But I advise you to check it daily, because Amazon prices fluctuate a lot.
Even so – $50 for a joint supplement is way too much. Especially for a monthly supply.
2. Competitor’s Price – other products are way cheaper, to be honest.
Now – I don’t know any product that contains the exact ingredients as Arthrozene.
But there is one with similar substances (but it contains some additional ones) – it’s called ProJoint Plus.
So compared to Arthrozene – ProJoint Plus:
- contains about 10 different ingredients (vs 3)
- has a better formula overall
- worked much better for me
- costs about $30 per bottle (vs $60)
So I think you can tell the difference yourself.
Now – I know that Arthrozene’s ingredients are registered trademarks. So it’s normal that they cost higher.
But in my case, they didn’t prove to be better.
So in my opinion, Arthrozene costs way too much for how it works. That’s the biggest reason why I wouldn’t buy it again.
#9 – Final Conclusions
Here’s how I would sum up my experience with Arthrozene – in 3 ideas.
1. Overpriced – for what it does, Arthrozene is too expensive:
- costs almost $60 per bottle
- doesn’t relieve the pain too well (in my case)
For these money, I would surely not buy it again. Especially when there are cheaper alternatives.
2. Weak Formula – in my opinion, the ingredients aren’t strong enough:
- only 3 substances
- doses aren’t very high
Now – I can’t complain about Boswellia and Collagen Type II.
But the Chicken Comb Extract has a problem:
- Contains mostly hyaluronic acid (60%).
- This substance doesn’t help a lot – unless it’s injected into the joint.
- Otherwise, you need a very high dose (around 200 mg). (3)
- Here you have around 55 mg – which is far too little.
So that’s the main reason why I consider these ingredients a bit too weak.
3. Fake Claims (?) – I’m not sure if that’s true, but that’s how I see things.
- claims to relieve the pain in as little as 5 days
Now – judging after my experience with over 100 products, that is pretty impossible:
- very few products worked so fast
- most of these could only relieve the pain
- none of them managed to help my cartilages in 5 days
So that’s why Arthrozene’s claims don’t seem right to me.
It didn’t even relieve my pain in 5 days – how could it improve my joint flexibility?
My Verdict – Is Arthrozene A Scam?
Short answer: Not really. As long as there’s even 1 satisfied customer – I couldn’t call it a scam.
And Arthrozene has many people satisfied with it, to be honest.
However, it also has too many things that don’t seem right to me. Starting with the price and ending with how it works.
But here’s a quick sum-up:
- the formula doesn’t look too powerful
- not very high doses
- didn’t relieve my pain almost at all
- my knee didn’t get more flexible either
- fake claims – it didn’t work after 5 days
- extremely expensive – $60 per one month bottle
Is It Worth Buying?: Definitely not. It’s just not worth wasting $60 for something that didn’t work.
And it’s not just the money – I was also wasting my time.
So if you really want something that treats your joint pain for less money – I recommend you the product from below:
- It’s the best one I personally tried
- It works really fast (but sure – that depends from person to person)
But anyway – it has a great price compared to Arthrozene. That’s the top reason why I recommend it instead.
For $60, you can almost buy 4 bottles – enough for 120 days. I think this tells the difference.
But obviously – you are free to judge for yourself and choose the product you want. So make the right choice for you!

Thanks for the review. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis a few years ago. One of the doctors recommended that I take Arthrozene and I’ve tried it for 1-2 weeks. After this time I’ve noticed that the pills didn’t provide me with any relief and my pain only got worse. I quickly went to an other doctor and he prescribed me with the right medicines and I got better. Never buy Arthrozene!!!
Hey there, it seems like it only caused you problems.
My pain didn’t get worse while taking Arthrozene – it didn’t help a lot, but it didn’t harm either. But who knows, everything is possible.
There’s one thing I don’t really understand. You said you were diagnosed with RA and your doctor recommended you Arthrozene.
I don’t know how severe your RA was – but this product isn’t the best thing for RA. I mean, it only contains one substance for inflammation (Boswellia extract) and the dose is pretty low. So that’s too little to decrease your RA swelling, in my opinion.
I think Arthrozene would work better for someone with osteoarthritis or cartilage problems. That’s because it contains 2 substances that help cartilages directly.
Now, I’m not a doctor – but that’s what I learned during the last years. Maybe if you had OA, Arthrozene wouldn’t have been that bad for you.
It’s great to hear you found the treatment that keeps your pain under control. May I ask – is it a classic treatment or a natural-based one?
Hi Heather. I bought Arthrozene a few months ago, because an acquaintance had positive results with it. She had some slight back pain, while I had hip arthritis with stiffness.
I’m sorry for not finding your review earlier because you explained a lot of things I had no idea about. I don’t know to analyze the ingredients and tell if a product is good or not. But I read some of your other product reviews, and you’re right: Arthrozene doesn’t contain something special.
But I totally agree with you in one thing, it’s extremely pricey. I thought twice before buying it, but I didn’t have many other options.
Now speaking as someone who also used Arthrozene, I will have to agree with you once again. I wouldn’t buy it either. My pain didn’t get much better when I used it and it costs a lot of money on top on that.
I’m thinking about trying your recommended product instead. I never heard of it before, but it seems that popularity didn’t make Arthrozene any better.
Thanks for the opinion and I feel sorry I only found it now.
Hey Estelle. Sometimes you have to test a product yourself to realize it doesn’t help.
I know Arthrozene helps certain people, after all it wouldn’t be so popular otherwise. But it probably helps with problems that are less severe. You said your friend had a back pain and it helped.
See? She probably didn’t have any major problem, so she liked this product.
But I think it’s too expensive even for that – after all, she could have got something similar for less than half.
Regarding your pain, I recommend you to check out this list about the best supplements for hip pain. It will surely help you choose the right product – depending on what type of pain you have.
Thanks for reading my review!
My dad used Arthrozene for pain and wasn’t too happy with it. It was okay for the pain, but he had a hard time getting out of bed every morning. And it didn’t help with that.
Nice analysis of the ingredients. You say that dose of collagen isn’t enough for pain. What would be the right dose then? Can you tell me a product with a better dose?
My dad has OA, not RA. I think collagen is the right ingredient for him. Thanks.
I’m not a big fan of collagen for osteoarthritis – it does help, but it’s not among the top 3 ingredients (in my opinion).
Yes, Arthrozene contains a very little dose overall. A good dose of collagen would be over 1000-1500 mg (some products contain up to 3000 mg).
But as I said – supplements based on collagen never helped me much. I think they work better for bodybuilding (I’ve seen most reviews on this type of blogs).
What I would recommend to your dad is something that contains glucosamine sulfate + chondroitin + MSM. This is my favorite supplement – but if you need some other options, here’s my best of list.
The point is that glucosamine + chondroitin re-build cartilages – which is what you dad needs.
You mentioned he’s not in big pain, but he has problems with morning stiffness. That’s something very common for people with cartilage problems (including me).
So this type of supplement should work much better than Arthrozene.
Hi, my mom bought Arthrozene for her back pain and sciatica and it seemed to work in the first month, but then her pain came back gradually. Up to the point where she was as bad as before.
She paid a ton of money of Arthrozene, do you happen to know if they offer refunds? Also do you have some specific tips for my mom (other than supplements, she will stick with her doctor’s treatment for now). Thanks
Hi Martin, sorry to hear about your mom’s experience with Arthrozene.
From what I know, they do offer refunds in 30, 60 or 90 days (depending on what quantity you bought). I found a page at the bottom of their website saying they accept returned products (even empty ones). They also have an address here, but I think you should call or email them before you send anything. Just to make sure.
If your mom follows the prescribed treatment, I think she should be fine on the long term. But in the meantime, here’s what she could do:
1. Oil massage really helps. You can try essential oils or herbal oils – some of my favorites are Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil and the #1 for pain is CBD Oil (but only if you find it, as it’s not available in every country).
2. Cayenne pepper patches can also help relieve the pain for a few hours. Just apply them on the painful spot and the relief should come within minutes.
3. Your mom’s pain will increase during rainy days – because of humidity (that’s totally normal). She can use a heating pad or apply a hot bottle on her painful spot to soothe the pain and decrease the stiffness.
4. She can also try acupuncture, for some people it’s helpful.
I really hope these tips help here. Thanks again for letting me know how Arthrozene worked for her.
Heather, I was looking for a supplement for my mom’s arthritic knees.
This is probably the first product I’ve heard that contains hyaluronic acid in oral format. Even the doctors advised my mom that this substance must be injected for efficacy, not as a consumption.
Collagen type 2 is another ingredient that I’ve heard of lately, but I do agree, 40 mg per day seems too small a volume.
My old dog is actually consuming a joint supplement that contains this and since pets don’t lie, you can really tell that it’s helping with his mobility.
So from what I understood, glucosamine is the best ingredient for this kind of supplements? Or are there any others?
Believe me, there are hundreds of supplements that brag about having 5 mg of hyaluronic acid. And most people have no idea that it’s useless orally – so they fall into this trap easily.
I tried to underline this in many reviews I wrote, so I can only hope that my readers got it.
Regarding collagen, it’s a good ingredient – but in my opinion, it’s too overestimated. I mean, my body doesn’t react so well to it – as it does to glucosamine + chondoritin combination.
So that’s why I don’t insist with collagen in my articles. As it doesn’t help me a lot, I don’t think it’s a must for OA.
Now regarding your question:
Yes, glucosamine is the top ingredient for osteoarthritis – but make sure it’s the sulfate form. That can make a big difference.
Here are the best ingredients for OA, in my view:
– glucosamine sulfate
– chondroitin sulfate
– some anti-inflammatory herbs like Turmeric, Boswellia (but not in very high doses)
So if I were to create a supplement for osteoarhritis, that’s what I would use. Most products from this list have these ingredients, more or less.
So if you need a good supplement for your mom, that’s where I advise you to look.
I think arthrozene is okay as a supplement but I wouldn’t pay so much even if it was the best. Do they sell it on Amazon? They usually have better prices there than on alone websites.
Anyway I still wouldn’t buy it. I think there’s cheaper supplements that work just as good. Thanks for the review.
Hi Kyle, they do sell it on Amazon but I don’t think it’s the official brand. I just checked out, and the price is actually a bit higher ($60 plus shipping).
I would still recommend Ebay if you want to buy it – you can be lucky enough to find a cheaper seller there.
But I agree that it’s way too expensive – I wouldn’t buy it again for sure.
Heather, I have a bottle of Arthrozene at home and I have to admit that it doesn’t work as expected. It’s the first time I tried it and I only bought it because I saw it was more expensive than others. I thought that if it has a high price, it must be really good. Now I think I was a bit wrong.
I have pain in my hips due to osteoarthritis. I’m taking some prescription meds but I was looking for an additional supplement that could work faster. My bottle of Arthrozene is almost empty but my pain is still there, so it didn’t help.
I saw in your review that you’re mostly blaming the low doses. Do you think that if there was a higher dose of Boswellia, it would work better? You say it’s against inflammation. Do you think I could try to take the few pills I have left all together (like 2-3 per day instead of one).
I hope you’re not bothered by all these questions, but I haven’t found anyone who tried this product before and can help me with this.
Hi Mary, it’s my pleasure to answer you, so don’t worry. You can come up with as many questions as you want.
As you have osteoarthritis, you don’t need a high dose of anti-inflammatory. OA is caused mostly by cartilage damage – there’s only minor inflammation.
So a higher dose of Boswellia would help you more, but it wouldn’t take away all your pain. Or treat your cartilages on the long term.
What you actually need are substances that rebuild cartilages: glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin. These substances can treat OA and rebuild cartilages – so decrease the pain and improve flexibility from the inside (treating the cause).
Regarding Arthrozene, the only ingredient that could help you is the collagen. It also improves joint flexibility and cartilages, but 40 mg is a very low dose.
And the chicken comb extract contains mostly hyaluronic acid, which is kind of useless when taken orally (you need at least 200 mg).
So there isn’t a lot of useful stuff for you in Arthrozene, in my opinion.
Instead, I recommend you to take a look at this list I made last year, on the best supplements for hip pain. There you will find a lot more info than I can write here – plus several clear recommendations, depending on your symptoms.
So if you have any other questions or there’s something you didn’t understand, please let me know. Hope this helps you Mary.
Hi Heather! I’m a 32 year old male with a chronic pain in my left knee, due to a car crash in the past year. I didn’t have surgery, because there was no need, according to my physician. When I went out out of hospital, I had some PT which really helped. But there’s a little pain bothering me almost daily. It gets worst because of weather (rain, storm, etc.)
Arthrozene is really popular, I found it on Amazon. But I have also read the reviews of several people complaining about it. So that has triggered my need to research. It’s great you have written this post based on your own experience using Arthrozene because that’s what I wanted to find.
Thanks for analyzing the 3 ingredients. It’s a pity they use a weak formula and that it’s still way too expensive. After reading your review I can understand why all those negative reviews from other people who used it.
So I don’t think it would be a good choice for my right now. Or actually never, it’s really expensive.
I checked out the product you recommend instead, but I saw you mostly recommend it for arthritis. I don’t have that (or I don’t think I do). My pain started since I had that accident, I don’t think I would have got it otherwise. So is there anything else you could advise me to try? Thanks.
Hello Henry, thanks for your question. First of all, I definitely would not recommend you Arthrozene, because I doubt it could help you much. Also, it’s not worth paying so much for a problem that isn’t very severe, like yours.
So judging after what you said, you probably don’t have osteoarthritis. However, your pain was caused by that accident.
This makes me think that your cartilages probably got hurt – and they didn’t recover. From what you said, there doesn’t seem to be any inflammation (because your pain isn’t constant, it only appears at times).
So I would stick to ProJoint Plus, the product I recommended instead of Arthrozene. I’m pretty sure it’s going to help, because it works best for arthritis and cartilage problems. And I’m pretty sure you have the last one.
Did you consult a doctor since you went out of hospital? They could test you and tell you for sure what’s the matter with your knees. That would help me give you the right advice, so that’s what I suggest you to do in the nearby future.
Until then, supplements should help you control the pain. I only recommended you one, but if you need some other suggestions, you can find them in this list.
Let me know what happens in the future.
Wow 60 bucks quite steep for 30 capsules!
But I think there is a point when we don’t think about money anymore but rather to just get something to null the pain. I was surprised to find out that their ingredient percentage is really low, only 55mg hyaluronic acid and 40mg for collagen type 2, I tried some other joint products so I too can tell that these doses are indeed little.
Don’t they know that they need to increase the quantity to have a better effect? I have a feeling that they maybe are focusing more on profit than helping us, thanks for taking the time to review this. Appreciate the thorough review
Hey Joey, thanks for letting me know your opinion.
I don’t consider Arthrozene a real scam, as other products I checked out (this one for example). They have a real website with some real contact details, and they also sell their product on Amazon. But they seem to have few reviews there, and not very positive ones.
So even though I don’t see it as a scam, I kind of agree with you. Arthrozene seems to be focusing more on making profits – otherwise why would it cost so much, since its ingredients aren’t something very rare and their doses aren’t very high.
That’s why I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s just not worth all these money for the relief you get, in my opinion.
Hi. I tried many joint products too (creams, pills, sprays and the whole bunch) and I know that most need a while to have an effect. I used Arthrozene in the past but I too was taken aback by their promise to work in as little as 5 days. Maybe it did this for some, but it’s not going to do it for mosts.
And I was one of those mosts. So I ended up quitting the pills because they were not showing any effect after as much as 14 days (which I counted down exactly). I ordered together with one friend so the amount per bottle wasn’t that high, but it was still pretty expensive. Around $40 per bottle, but can’t remember exactly.
Anyway, that’s not money to throw on your window for nothing. So I mostly find myself in everything you wrote here. I’m not a satisfied customer and will not order it again. I’m trying to look for cheaper meds, so I’m going to investigate further into your top products from osteoarthritis (the condition I have).
Hi Fredrickh, it’s great to hear the experience of someone who really tried Arthrozene. You seem to have had the same issues as I did – its high price, huge claims and the fact that it didn’t work.
I do agree that it’s not worth wasting $50 (or even $40 as you did) for nothing. So all you can do is to research deeper before you buy anything.
And regarding that list you mentioned – here are my top supplements for osteoarthritis. You will surely find the right one here (some have really good prices).
So I’ve been dealing with knee issues for a long time. Running is one of my favorite ways of exercising and yet my knee begins feeling pain just after a few strides into my morning jog. Family members have bought me “joint relief” supplements at an attempt to relieve some of my pain, but it seems nothing really does the trick. I may start some physical therapy here soon but honestly I’d like to bypass it if I can find something that works for me. Thank you for this honest review of Arthrozene. It’s nice to hear an actual voice on the internet and not a robot telling me everything a pill is going to do for me. Please let me know if you have any advice for me.
Hi Michael. I’m not really sure what’s the cause behind your pain – because treating the cause is essential if you want to get rid of it.
Let me ask you a few questions:
1. Did the pain come up out of the sudden or after an injury, accident or any other event?
2. Are your knees red, warm or swollen while you feel the pain?
3. When your pain comes up, do your knees feel stiff too – or it’s just the pain?
4. Are you above 50 or under?
5. What supplements did you use before and they didn’t work?
These things would help me get a better idea about what could be causing your pain.
Now – I don’t know what exact supplement you tried, but I can recommend you to check out this list on the best products from knee pain that I tried.
They are classified based on what they’re good for (inflammation, cartilage problems, stiffness) so you may not know what to choose and I can’t give you any clear advice for now. But checking them out could help you get an idea about what you might need.
Anyway, I don’t recommend you Arthrozene, it’s also expensive and will probably not work for you, since you say some other products didn’t.
Physical therapy could be a good option, on the other hand. In the worst case, it’s not going to change anything. So it can’t possibly hurt you, that’s why I recommend you to give it a try.
So if you can, please let me know the answer to those 5 questions so that I can give you some proper advice.
I know Arthrozene from my granny, she would buy it monthly because it really helped her long time ago. Now I started developing some pain in my knees due to an accident and I went straight to Arthrozene, because it was my granny’s favorite. Guess what? The pain was still there after one whole bottle!
I wish I had my grandmother here to have her try this version of Arthrozene (she passed away in the meantime). I think they changed the actual formula to a weaker one that was less costly for them. Otherwise why did she have so good results with it and I can’t see any improvement?
Hi Nicole, I don’t know how long has it been since Arthrozene is on the market, but it’s surely a long time.
Your hypothesis might be true, but I can’t really tell. Most of the reviews I found about Arthrozene are pretty recent (2-3 years old at most). So they surely didn’t change the formula since them, but before that – I can’t tell.
But maybe it wasn’t as expensive in the past – so that could be the reason why your grandmother kept buying it. And who knows, maybe it really helped her?
Most of the people I spoke with didn’t have great results from Arthrozene. But it surely helped someone at one point, and maybe your granny was one of them.
I know there weren’t so many supplements back then – but she surely would have bought it over and over again if it wasn’t helpful.
So I don’t really know what to say, your idea could be true.
Regarding your knee pain, I don’t really know what’s the cause (maybe OA, since it appeared after the accident?) – but here are some products that could help you. More than Arthrozene, I mean – and for less money.
Hi Heather, Arthrozene did not help me. I’m 78 y.o and my left hip cartilage is slightly damaged, so I am sometimes in pain. Been researching Arthrozene and bought it because it was more expensive than most products (so I thought it was better). But I experienced very little improvement in my painful days. Do you think ProJoint Plus could help hip pain as well? If it works any better than Arthrozene, I’m ready to give it a try (the price is really good honestly).
Hello Dan. Since you have cartilage problems, I imagine you have osteoarthritis (you didn’t mention, but that’s most likely the cause).
In this case, I’m not very surprised Arthrozene didn’t help. In order to decrease your pain, you need a product that will:
– rebuild your cartilages
– protect your joints from additional damage
The ingredients from Arthrozene aren’t very good at these chapters. So you need a product that would contain the following:
1. Glucosamine Sulfate (the sulfate form is a must, instead of the HCl one)
2. Chondroitin Sulfate
4. Turmeric or Boswellia
Out of these 4 ingredients – there’s only Boswellia inside Arthrozene. And this isn’t even an essential ingredient – because it works best for inflammation. And in OA, there’s little inflammation – it’s the cartilage damage that causes the pain.
So in your case, Arthrozene has low chances to work – maybe if your cartilages had some minor damage, but that’s not the case.
So yeah, what I recommend you is ProJoint Plus:
– it’s the best supplement for OA that I tried
– it contains ingredients that can rebuild and protect cartilages
– out of the good supplements I used, it’s the cheapest one
So I’m pretty sure it’s going to help your hip – it’s the right product for this kind of problem.
I don’t know how fast it’s going to work, but you should feel an improvement in your pain in several weeks (it really depends from person to person). And regarding your cartilages, it’s going to take a long while until they get better (probably several months at least).
In case you need some other options, here’s my best of list for hip pain supplements. But most of them are more expensive than ProJoint Plus, so it depends of your budget.
Heather, I was scheduled for surgery on my knee in early January and before the operation I found out I had a blood clot. Needless to say my surgery was canceled and I happened to get an e-mail from Fisico and once I read about it I decided to try it. Guess what? I no longer need a complete knee replacement and I no longer limp or cry out with excruciating pain.
My knee is not completely well but it is better than it ever was for YEARS. I believe that ARTHROZENE is responsible for what’s going on with my knee and maybe RA isn’t the right type of arthritis to heal with what I take. I’m so sick of the pharmaceutical crap that is doled out from the lobbiest greed and herbal or whatever you call is better in the long run. Thanks for listening.
Hi Mary, thanks a lot for letting me know how Arthrozene worked for you. I’m pretty surprised, to be honest – especially because your problem must have been serious (since you needed a knee replacement).
My results with Atrhrozene were totally different than yours, that’s why my review is mostly negative. Plus that it also has some things I didn’t like, besides how it works.
But if it helped you so much, I think there’s no point trying something else. It’s true that Arthrozene it’s quite expensive, but if you afford the monthly fee – just stick to it if it’s so helpful.
I didn’t understand if you have RA or another type of arthritis. But Arthrozene has ingredients that can help both inflammation and cartilage damage. I personally didn’t think they could help too much – but your personal experience proves I was wrong.
Thanks again for letting me know how it worked for you, my opinion about it isn’t that bad anymore. I’m probably not going to try it again, since it’s way above my budget. But at least I don’t think it’s such a big scam anymore.
This product is expensive but it’s well worth that. I’ve had a shoulder injury back in 1999 after a car crash. I’ve tried everything: PT, surgery, pain killers without being able to get back to my normal life 100%. Most of these things helped, but not as I was hoping for:
PT was effective as long as I did it daily. When I took a 2-3 days break, my pain went to a high again.
Surgery helped but I spent months recovering when I couldn’t move my entire arm, which was terrible for my independent personality.
I thought pain killers to be the best thing ever at one point, but then I started suffering from kidney failure, which turned out to be caused by the drugs. Soon after my stomach started to hurt and I got an ulcer, once again because of them.
So I saw an ad on Arthrozene and decided to take my chance and see if it can do anything. In 3 months I was again on my own, with very little pain in my shoulder. It’s not like before the accident yet but it’s the best I’ve been ever since.
This is the first alternative product I’m trying, because I never believed in supplements. I agree that it costs a lot, but I’m happy to pay that price. I would be afraid to try anything else, even cheaper because that means I might have to go through some pain again, in case it’s not effective. I don’t want that!
As long as I can buy Arthrozene, I will be using it all my entire life. If you can pay the price, I recommend it!
Hi Jally, thanks so much for sharing your experience on Arthrozene.
I’m glad to hear it’s so effective for you. It’s such a shame you haven’t tried anything else, I would have loved to hear your opinion on other supplements as well. But don’t worry, I’m not trying to convince you to change Arthrozene for something else.
If you’re satisfied with how it works, I also suggest you to stick with it. It seems to be the right thing for you, so that’s excellent news. The high price is its biggest downside, in my opinion – so if that’s not a problem for you, I wouldn’t recommend you anything else.
Thanks again for letting me know how Arthrozene worked for you.
I have tried Arthrozene and went from barely being able to walk in the morning when I get out of bed to getting up with no stiffness (same as when I have been sitting for a bit). My knee pain is also greatly reduced. I did not see any results till about day 9 or 10. Yes there are negative reviews but I have also seen many verified positive reviews online. Not everything works for everyone in the same way. And my understanding is that Arthrozene is only intended for osteoarthritis.
Hi Janet, thanks for letting me know your opinion on Arthrozene. It seems like it’s totally different from mine, for you it was a real life changer.
I wrote this review based on my personal experience with Arthrozene, so I might seem a bit too harsh with it – but that’s how I usually talk about the supplements that didn’t help me. But I recently received a positive comment from another client who loved Arthrozene. So yeah, it seems that what works terribly for me makes wonders for others.
Did you find anywhere that Arthrozene is intended just for OA? I checked the official website and some others and I can only find “joint pain in general”. But it has 2 important anti-inflammatory, and only 2 substance for cartilages (collagen). In osteoarthritis there’s little inflammation and a lot of cartilage damage, so I can’t really see why it would be intended just for OA with this type of ingredients.
Have you also tried some other joint supplements that helped? For me Arthrozene is really pricey, I couldn’t afford buying it on a monthly basis. So even if it worked, I would probably not stick to it. But sure, your budget may be different.
Thanks again for letting me know your opinion, it really helps hearing from other people.
Heather, I have also tried Arthrozene and the only nasty part was price. And I have to agree, it didn’t work in 5 days as it promises, so that part is fake. But I was satisfied with its effect for my fibromyalgia. I don’t know to compare ingredients and doses as you do, but I can honestly say it has helped my pain.
I have a long experience with turmeric and Boswellia serrata, I used them as organic powder for a very long period until I realized I could get a much better effect with pills. Many supplements I used were effective, so it’s hard for me to choose one. Arthrozene wasn’t much better than the rest, but it really worked.
So at this point, I’m still in the testing phase, trying to find the product that is above the rest. I will certainly try the turmeric supplement you recommend, I’ve read other positive info about it.
PS: Do you have any articles/tips/recommendations on fibromyalgia? Or any special supplements? Price doesn’t matter.
I couldn’t find anything on your website, but maybe I just didn’t look too well. I would really like to read your advice. I’m looking forward to see your answer.
Hi Traci, thank you for sharing your experience on Arthrozene. It’s great to hear different opinions from mines – because it means that Arthrozene isn’t as bad as I thought.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any article on fibromyalgia because I don’t have this condition myself. But I know it produces chronic pain, so it’s really similar to rheumatoid arthritis and joint pain.
So I plan to make some articles focusing on fibromyalgia as well, in the near future. Keep an eye on my website and you will see when that happens.
Anyway, you can also use these tips from my article on psoriatic arthritis. Basically – it’s not something specific for PsA, but for inflammatory arthritis in general. So that should really help you.
Also, maybe these alternative remedies for RA will give you a hand.
I have many recommendations for arthritis and inflammation in older articles, so if you have time – you should browse around.
Thanks again for telling me how Arthrozene worked for you, it’s great to hear different experiences.
Hello Heather, maybe you can give me some advice for my problem. When I hit 50, my joints started to hurt – I was previously fine, but in the next years the pain progressed. I was recommended hyaluronic acid shots in my knees, which helped partially; but I had to repeat them several times per year, and they were extremely pricey.
So I tried some alternative remedies – and Arthrozene was one of them. I wasn’t very satisfied with the product because my pain would fluctuate; it was low in the morning, then it would go higher, and so on. I just thought there must be something that keeps my pain to a minimum all day long, without fluctuations.
I tried several products, including Instaflex and Move Free but it was the same as with Arthrozene – the pain was fine now, but short after it would get to a peak.
So do you have any explanation why I never get a normal relief from these drugs? Whether it’s Arthrozene or any other… Could I have a problem or a specific reaction? I don’t have arthritis or any chronic disease, I just got this pain and can’t get rid of it at all.
Hi Regina. I don’t think there’s nothing wrong with you, it’s probably just a coincidence – all 3 supplements you tried weren’t effective enough for your problem. That’s what I think.
But let me ask you – how long have you been taking them? Instaflex worked pretty fast for me – but the other 2 (Arthrozene and Move Free) were slower.
But it really depends from person to person. That’s why I recommend you to finish at least on bottle of any supplement before you reach any conclusion.
Getting back to your question – I think those supplements weren’t very effective for you. You said you tried many others – could you give me some other names?
If you don’t have RA or fibromyalgia, there’s no reason why your pain doesn’t decrease constantly. Also, you didn’t mention which joints are hurting most and why (in case you know the cause). This is essential because it’s hard for me to give you any advice if I don’t know these details.
Anyway – you can check out some of my top recommended supplements for joint pain. See which of these you tried before and pick one that fits your budget. If you can give me more details, maybe I can help more.
it certainly does not improve pain in 5 days, i used it for over one month and my joints still hurt a lot. i had someone recommend me arthrozene so i bought it despite the high cost. but i was one of those unsatisfied customers. have also tried contacting their staff asking for a refund, but they wouldn’t offer that. so i am sorry for trying it for sure. i like your website because you recommend cheap products, that’s great for people who don’t want to buy expensive stuff, like me. thank you!
Hello Rob, thanks for your kind words and for letting me know how Arthrozene worked for you.
From what I know, they don’t have any “money back gurarantee” – that’s why they didn’t want to refund you. But I find it very fair, since they didn’t claim to refund unsatisfied people. So you can’t judge them for that.
Regarding how it worked for you – most people had similar opinions. But I also had some positive feedback about Arthrozene, so I don’t consider it as a rip-off anymore.
It’s simply an overpriced product that helps some, but doesn’t work for many others.
Yes, my top recommendations are usually cheaper products. That’s because I never want to spend lots of money on supplements, plus that I can’t really afford that.
So why pay a lot when you can get the same relief from a much cheaper product? That’s how I see things.
Heather thank you for your Arthrozene review. I heard mixed opinions about this product, you also say it can help some despite not having helped you. I have very bad pain in my left foot, due to cartilage erosion in the knee (according to my doc). He prescribed some medication but it’s making me more sick. Do you think Arthrozene could do any good in my case? I also heard of Arthrozyme and was wondering if that could be a better alternative? They’re made by the same producer? Out of these 2 I would prefer Arthozyme because it’s cheaper.
Hi Howard, your knee pain is caused by cartilage damage – which means you have osteoarthritis.
In this case, you need some substances that can rebuild cartilages – glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen.
Arthrozene only has collagen, which is why it’s not my top recommendation for osteoarthritis or cartilage damage. I just think it’s not strong enough for that (compared to glucosamine + chondroitin products).
Regarding Arthrozyme – it’s only similar to Arthrozene in name.
Arthrozyme contains anti-inflammatory ingredients, so it works better for inflammatory arthritis. Not osteoarthritis or cartilage damage.
On the other hand, Arthrozene contains both anti-inflammatory and cartilage ingredients – so it can work for both forms of arthritis.
Also, they’re not made by the same company – they just happen to have similar names.
I know Arthrozyme is cheaper, but it’s not the right kind of supplement for your problem. Anti-inflammatory aren’t going to help you a lot, because your pain isn’t cause by inflammation.
So I wouldn’t spend my money on that.
On the other hand, Arthrozene may work for your problem – but it’s still not very strong. I would actually recommend you a supplement based on glucosamine + chondroitin, as they have a much stronger formula.
Besides, some of them are way cheaper than Arthrozene – so you can get something better for less money (up to half).
If I were you, I would prefer to start with a cheaper product and not to spend so much money on something that might not work. But surely, it’s your own choice.
So I hope you take the right decision.
64 years old, I have RA with my hands being most affected. Have tried Heal n Soothe and several turmeric brands from Amazon (Spring Valley and Bio Schwartz) without much improvement. Currently taking Methotrexate which helps, but the side effects are bothering me. Any chances that Arthrozene works for me? Since turmeric was not effective, maybe Boswellia would. I know Arthrozene has Boswellia. I’m waiting for your opinion on this.
Hello Brenda. I’m not surprised to hear that Heal N Soothe and Spring Valley’s curcumin didn’t work for you:
– the first one doesn’t have very strong ingredients, in my opinion
– Spring Valley’s product doesn’t have any bioperine, which is essential for the proper absorption of turmeric
However, Bio Schwartz’s turmeric is a pretty good product – so it’s weird it didn’t help you too much.
Regarding Arthrozene, I don’t consider it better than BioSchwartz’s product. But if you’re willing to try it – what can I say? Go for it, especially if you afford paying the high price.
Now – you’re probably thinking that it might work better because of the Boswellia extract it has.
I don’t know if you know this or not, but Heal N Soothe also contains Boswellia extract (in a higher dose actually). The only difference is that Arthrozene has a trademark version (ApresFlex), which is slightly better.
So basically – 100 mg of Arthrozene’s extract is pretty much the same as 150 mg of Heal N Soothe’s extract. That’s what I think.
So you actually have tried Boswellia in Heal N Soothe – that’s why I doubt Arthrozene would be very effective.
Maybe a formula that has both turmeric and Boswellia would help you more – Joint Advantage Gold is one of the best products I tried.
Anyway, if you still choose to try Arthrozene, please let me know how it works for you. Hope this helps.
Hello Heather. I have read your full review on Arthrozene and your experience was very similar to mine. I too tried many products for my hip arthritis and very few things seemed to help (if you’re familiar with Joint Advantage Gold, but it’s expensive).
I saw the ad on Arthrozene and purchased it soon after, because it sounded different from what I had tried before. It was really different, but it was more expensive. That was it…I took 1 whole bottle and my hips were still very painful. I know many people were praising it, so I took the chance an ordered another one. It turned out to be a bad investment again, because I was as much in pain as before.
So Arthrozene was useless for my hips. I read some positive comments and I can’t really understand how other people felt much better and I couldn’t even see a change.
I saw you recommend a turmeric supplement instead. I haven’t used that exact one, but I tried some from a different brand and I could feel partially better. So I think I’m going to give turmeric plus a try, it’s really cheap compared to Arthrozene.
Thank you for your review, you’re not the only one who didn’t experience any benefit from taking Arthrozene.
Hi Jordan, thanks for taking the time to let me know how Arthrozene worked for you. Your experience is indeed pretty similar to mine – and unfortunately it has the same final.
I’m very familiar with Joint Advantage Gold – in fact, it’s one of my favorite supplements. It has probably the best ingredients out of all joint supplements – because it has both cartilage re-builders and anti-inflammatory.
But once again I agree with you – I don’t use it constantly because it’s too pricey.
Are there are other supplements you tried and improved your hip pain? I have some recommendations here – in case you’re interested.
Now – regarding Arthrozene, it doesn’t have such amazing ingredients, in my opinion. I know there are many people praising it and its compounds. But after trying more than 100 products – the ingredients from Arthrozene don’t look extremely promising to me.
It’s true they are trademark substances – and that’s what makes them more expensive. But even so, their doses aren’t that high – so this might be an explanation why it’s not so effective.
Anyway, I can’t really tell for sure.
The point is that there are many people complaining about Arthrozene. There are some who praise it (and I’m sure it works for them) – but they are quite a few. So the high number of negative reviews makes me think Arthrozene isn’t so amazing.
Considering it costs $60 per month, I think there are way better supplements (both in price and effect).
I have pain in my left knee and I heard about Arthrozene, do you think it’s good for that? I tried some turmeric from Nature Bounty and it wasn’t successful, so this time I’m willing to pay more on a product that’s really good. I don’t have arthritis or anything, just painful knees from standing all day long.
Alex, I don’t think you really read my review, so I’m going to ask you to take a closer look at it – because it answers most of your questions.
As for knee pain supplements, I recommend you one of these (and Arthrozene isn’t among them). Nature Bounty is a super cheap supplement but its quality is just as cheap. So I’m not surprised it didn’t help you.
So please read this review and you will understand my opinion on Arthrozene. You can also read the comments to see different people’s opinions, maybe that helps even more.
Hi Heather, really appreciate your personal review. I had a torn rotator cuff and has several surgeries throughout 5 years, all without much help. My body was more flexible but it was still very painful. I took pain medication constantly for over a year, which destroyed my stomach so I was put on medication for that and also had a surgery which seemed to fix the problem.
I went to the alternative side and tried several products, Arthrozene being one of them. I was not completely satisfied by the product, even though it helped my pain. After the first few weeks, I started getting severe diarrhea and feel the constant need of water. I was drinking even 100 oz per day.
My pain was getting better but I was just feeling worse. I stopped Arthrozene and went for a similar product (something with healing, I can’t remember the name). In a couple of days, my diarrhea stopped and I was starting to feel better, but my severe pain returned.
Now I’m afraid to go back to Arthozene because even though it helps the pain, it seems to be ruining my body. I’ve still got one bottle left which I don’t want to throw away, but I’m too afraid to take it again. Have you experienced anything similar? What would you do if you were me? Sorry for the off topic…
Hi Samantha. First of all, Arthrozene might not be the real cause of your diarrhea – even though that’s what it looks like.
It’s a bit weird that your diarrhea didn’t begin immediately after you took the pills, but several weeks later. So let me ask you – have you changed anything in your diet, medication, etc. in the meantime?
Anyway, you say that once you stopped taking Arthrozene, your problems also disappeared. That would make me think it was Arthozene behind. So I’m in between – I can’t give you a clear answer.
The other supplement you tried is probably Heal N Soothe. It’s similar to Arthrozene both in price and ingredients.
But tell me, how long did you take Heal N Soothe? Did you take it for at least 3-4 weeks? If not, I advise you to finish at least one bottle and draw the conclusions afterwards – not all products work as fast as others.
So here’s what I recommend you:
1. If you haven’t finished the bottle of Heal N Soothe, make sure you finish it. If you still can’t see any effect, that’s it.
2. In this case, I think you should try Arthrozene again. That’s what I would do.
Just pay attention to your symptoms:
– Does the pain decrease? How fast?
– Do you also start feeling dehydrated or getting diarrhea?
If the old symptoms come back, it’s clear that Arthrozene is behind. So in that case, I would advise you to give it up completely. Maybe your body doesn’t tolerate it, or maybe you’re allergic to a certain ingredient – I can’t really tell for sure.
But if your diarrhea comes back, it’s obvious that Arthrozene is causing it.
So in this case, you should try another product – for a rotator cuff tear, I recommend you something based on turmeric, because it’s the best natural anti-inflammatory I know. So it should really help.
However, if your diarrhea doesn’t come back – it was probably just a coincidence. So if you afford Arthrozene on a monthly basis, I think you should continue using it.
That’s what I would do if I were you.
I really hope my answer helps and please let me know what happens.
Hi, I bought Arthrozene for my knee pain and was no satisfied, pain would not go lower in 2 months. Do you think they can send me the money back? I used the producer’s website to make my order, does this count? Do you know any good product for knee pain that is under $35? I don’t want to buy anymore premium products that are pointless.
Hello JP, thanks for your feedback on Arthrozene, I’m sorry to hear it didn’t help.
First of all – I would like to know what kind of knee pain you have. Is it inflammatory? (your knees can be red, swollen or warm). Or it came up due to aging or after an accident/injury?
That would really help me get a better idea about the cause behind.
But I will take both options:
1. If your pain is caused by inflammation or swelling, you need a product that fights inflammation.
Arthrozene also belongs to this category, but maybe it was too weak for your problem. Otherwise I can’t explain why you didn’t feel at least a bit better.
So my top recommendations in this case are turmeric supplements:
– turmeric is the best herb for inflammation
– it decreases the pain similarly to NSAIDs, but it has few side effects
– the strongest remedy for pain among herbs
– you can find very cheap supplements (some under $25)
– additionally, you can use it in several ways (but they’re less effective than supplements)
My top recommendation is Turmeric Plus, because it’s the cheapest supplement that worked for me. It costs about $24 per bottle, but you can also get it for about $18 (if you buy a larger pack).
2. If your knee pain appeared after an injury or after aging – you might have osteoarthritis.
So in this case, you need a product based on glucosamine + chondroitin:
– best substances for rebuilding cartilages
– also improve damaged/worn up cartilages
– protect the joints from further damage
I recommend you to choose a product with glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin, MSM and maybe even bromelain (this combination makes wonders).
You can take a look at my top recommended products for OA here.
Now – glucosamine supplements tend to be more expensive than turmeric, but I will try to find you something for your budget (under $35).
My top recommendation is ProJoint Plus, because it’s the cheapest supplement that was effective for me. There are many others, but based on its low price – this one is my favorite.
Now – please let me know what kind of knee pain you have, so that I can give you more advice on this.
Turmeric and glucosamine work for different problems, that’s why it’s essential to spot the real cause of your pain. Glucosamine doesn’t really help inflammation, just like turmeric doesn’t rebuild cartilages.
So in case you can’t tell the cause of your pain, just give me more details on your symptoms so I can understand better
PS: Here’s a list of my top supplements for knee pain, in case you want a faster solution. Hope this helps.
Hi, could you tell me where you bought Arthrozene from? I ordered a bottle from Amazon and received a bottle with small blue pills. I took them for 3 weeks and no changes in my pain. I have carpel tunnel syndrome and I didn’t try many remedies before Arthrozene. But I saw it advertised on TV and hoped it would help, but the pills did not alleviate the pain and stiffness I had in my hands. But I read some reviews and no one mentions taking blue pills, maybe they send me something else?! The bottle was just like the ones pictured everywhere, but the pills weren’t tablets, they were tiny capsules all covered in whitish blue. Do you remember what color were yours? I’m thinking I might have been scammed and paid $70 for nothing.
Hi Victoria. I buy most of my products from Ebay and when I can’t find one there, I go to Amazon. So I also bought Arthrozene from Ebay, not from Amazon.
If I remember well, my pills were also blueish but they were made of gelatin (I hope I’m not wrong). I just checked some other reviews and many people complained about a similar thing as you:
– they said they used to buy Arthrozene in the past and always received blue capsules
– but recently the pills inside the bottle were plastic capsules
So that’s actually almost the opposite as your experience. Anyway, people who wrote the reviews were also scared they got a fake version of the product.
Now, I can’t really tell. But I know that many supplements change their capsules, additives or inactive ingredients at one point. They never change the formula or the active ingredients, though.
I can’t tell about Arthrozene, but I’ve heard some real cases. So if I were you, I wouldn’t worry about that. If you bought the pills from Amazon, I’m pretty sure they didn’t scam you. You can contact their support and ask, maybe they can give you a better answer than mine.
But I wouldn’t worry too much, since it’s probably just a change in the inactive ingredients.
Regarding your condition, it has an inflammatory cause. So Arthrozene should normally work for that, especially since your problem isn’t a massive one (as rheumatoid arthritis). I advise you to finish the bottle(s) if you have more and see if you notice any improvement.
if you don’t, my advice would be to try turmeric – because it’s the best natural anti-inflammatory I know. The supplements I recommend are pretty affordable, compared to Arthrozene. And in my case, they were far more effective (but that also depends from person to person).
You can also try some alternative treatments that work for any kind of inflammation (not just RA). Oil massage can also help, but don’t bother buying expensive oils. Even the usual Olive Oil can do, but my top recommendation is CBD oil (because it’s meant for pain). In case you can’t find it, try any herbal oil from your kitchen.
Hope this helps.
Hi, I was looking at your review for Arthrozene and then saw your review for ProJoint Plus. I have severe OA and little cartilage left so I was hoping to get some relief from Arthrozene, but it wasn’t the case. That’s already my 4th month and I can’t feel an improvement, so I’m thinking about quitting it. It’s such a vain expense every month! ProJoint PLus sounds considerably cheaper, so buying it monthly would not affect me so much. I was only curious if you think it’s good for knee osteoarthritis, would it help if I have little to no cartilage? I know you can’t say for sure, but just an opinion would do. Also is it better than Arthrozene, as ingredients, in your opinion? I have seen it has more ingredients, so maybe that means a more powerful effect.
Hello Millis, thank you for your feedback on Arthrozene.
Regarding ProJoint Plus, it would be my recommendation for your problem – especially since you’re on a tight budget. It’s based on glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin, which are the best substances at rebuilding cartilages. And that’s exactly what you need.
Getting to your questions, I can’t guarantee it will rebuild your cartilages completely – especially since you have almost none left. But in my opinion, it should work – only that it’s probably going to take longer (over 3 months). You might feel an improvement in the meantime, but it won’t be a great one – nor a very fast one.
In terms of ingredients, I personally consider ProJoint Plus superior to Arthrozene. As you said, it has more ingredients and it focuses on one problem (rebuilding cartilages and consequent problems like stiffness, bad lubrication, etc.). On the other hand, Arthrozene claims to work for arthritis in general – which includes several forms with different causes and problems. So it’s less likely for a supplement to work really well for all forms, if you ask me.
Now – Arthrozene has trademark ingredients, which means they’re the best version of those substances. That’s why its doses aren’t high (compared to ProJoint Plus, they seem far lower). But on the other hand, ProJoint Plus has more varied ingredients. So I think it wins at this chapter.
So my advice for you is to give it a try. There are also others supplements that work well enough for knee osteoarthritis – but for your budget, I think this is the most affordable. I really hope this helps.
PS: You can follow my guide on treating OA naturally. Maybe it provides useful resources.
Heather, I’m using Arthrozene for almost 3 weeks. I have knee osteoarthritis and almost bone to bone in my left joint. I was hoping to get some relief from this product, since it’s very expensive. But I’m struggling with stomach pain daily, especially 30 minutes after taking the pill. With or without food, it’s the same. The relief I’m getting is very little, but it’s not been a week yet so I’m still waiting. Any advice you could give me to get rid of my stomach pain? My guess is that I’m not taking the pills right.
Hello John, thanks for your feedback on Arthrozene. To be honest, I’m quite surprised to hear about your stomach pain. That’s because Arthrozene doesn’t have a very strong formula (which could be a potential cause in other cases). Also, it only requires 1 pill per day, so you can’t blame the fact that you’re taking more pills for your pain.
So to be honest, I can’t really tell which is the cause. Maybe it’s just how your body reacts to this supplement. Have you tried taking the pills after eating consistently (meat, proteins, etc.)? Try not to take Arthrozene with food, but immediately after food.
That’s the only advice I can think of right now.
Regarding Arthrozene’s effect, you’re right – it’s too early to tell right now. But I personally wouldn’t recommend it for OA, because its formula works better for inflammation (which you don’t really have in OA). Glucosamine based supplements usually work best for osteoarthritis, so these are my top recommendation.
Anyway – I imagine you don’t want to try any new supplement right now, considering you paid a lot on Arthrozene. But keep in mind that a high price doesn’t make a product good or effective. So in case you ever need any suggestions, here are my favorite products for knee pain.
Try to follow my advice regarding Arthrozene’s schedule and see if anything changes. Anyway, let me know what happens.
i am interested in it
Nancy, if you decide to try it, please let me know how it helps.
Hi mrs. Heather, do you think this would help knee stiffness? I don’t have arthritis but my knees start feeling painful and stiff whenever I sit down for a longer time, take a nap or sleep. The more time I spend inactive, the worse it is. So it’s worst in the morning and it gets better with movement. I want to try Arthrozene but want to be sure it helps my condition first.
Hey Jackson, do you happen to have arthritis? Or do you know the cause of your possible pain? Inactivity could be a reason for stiffness, but it’s usually because your joints aren’t in a good shape. So if you don’t try to treat the cause, the actual problem might worsen.
Before you try any supplement, my advice is to consult a doctor for more tests. I can’t really tell what your problem is just based on these symptoms. Your doctor will have some detailed tests and see if there’s any cartilage damage or inflammation.
So my advice is not to take Arthrozene or any supplement for the moment. Once you find out what the cause is, let me know and I can offer some further advice.
One thing that might help you temporary is using heat on your stiff joints. This will increase lubrication and blood flow in the affected areas, so the stiffness will go away a lot faster. Heating pads or hot bottles are the easiest solution. But that doesn’t replace medical consult, so check with your doctor in the nearest future. Hope this helps.
This supplement made my knees swell worse than before, after just a couple of days. I didn’t do anything unusual to my daily routine, it’s just that I started taking Arthrozene. My guess is that this product is responsible. I’m only taking it for less than a week but I already want to quit. Will it anything happen if I stop the pills out of a sudden (worse pain, headaches, etc.)? This has happened to me before so I would rather ask. But I still can’t continue with this supplement since my knees are a lot worse than before. Will certainly go for a refund.
Hey Eliza, thanks for your feedback on Arthrozene. I’m quite shocked to hear your knees actually worsened, since this product should actually help inflammation. But everyone is different, so maybe your body doesn’t respond to it at all (on the contrary).
So yes, my advice is to stop the pills for a few days and see what happens. If your swelling gets back to normal, it was probably Arthrozene causing it. Otherwise, it might be just a coincidence. So depending on that, you can decide whether or not you continue using it on the long term.
Don’t worry, giving up any supplement shouldn’t cause you any side effects. Actually, the ones that you’re talking about are probably drugs – certain drugs can cause side effects if you stop them suddenly, but that’s not the case of supplements. So you can stop Arthrozene without any worry.
Please keep me updated with how it goes in the future. Hope this helps!
Any product that makes you listen to a repetitive, very uninformative video that you cannot fast forward and saves some actual info on the product the the very boring end, should be ignored. The price is insane and there is nothing in it that would make me think it was special. I refuse to waste my money on Arthrozene. Keep moving…being sedentary makes joints stiff, eat healthy…non-GMO, organic produce , drink lots of water because dehydration will seize up joints…take glucosomine with condroitin, Cod liver oil pills, halibut fish oils, and MSM for inflammation. I am fine when I do these things.
Hi Christine, thanks for sharing your opinion on Arthrozene. I agree that it’s really expensive and I personally wouldn’t spend so much money on it. There are enough people who would actually, but it’s everyone’s own choice.
Thanks a lot for the advice based on your experience. Drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated surely helps, as well as organic and natural foods. Though I’m not a huge fan of fish oil, I know it’s really helpful for some people. Not to mention that glucosamine and chondroitin are by far the best remedies for osteoarthritis and cartilage damage.
Hi! This is my second bottle of Arthrozene and I’m not feeling any better yet. I have hip OA and flare-ups of pain getting worse at least once a week. I’m on Tylenol in the most painful days but the drug doesn’t seem to make my crisis more rare. I was hoping Arthrozene might do that, but apparently there’s no change yet. Do you think I should order another bottle? Mine runs out in about a week so if I want to get another one, this would be the time. Your opinion would guide me a lot!
Hi Cindy! Arthrozene is mostly made for anti-inflammatory arthritis (like rheumatoid or psoriatic forms). Since you have OA, your joints aren’t extremely inflamed – they are simply damaged and that’s what causes your actual pain. So Arthrozene doesn’t help you because it doesn’t contain the right ingredients. It’s designed to decrease inflammation but you need something that will rebuild your damaged cartilages. So you need a product based on glucosamine + chondroitin (which are the top cartilage rebuilders). Here’s a list of my top recommended glucosamine and chondroitin products – you should find the right product here, depending on your budget.
Heating pads can also help you with pain and stiffness, especially during flare-ups. In case you need any more tips, this guide should come in handy for your problem. I hope this helps you.
Thank You Heather Phram !,
Thank You for your hard work in disclosing these crooks !!!
I returned the empty bottle and got my money back. I agree it is a SCAM.
I think they are making money by praying on seniors who are not organized enough to get there money back…
Hi Rich, thanks for your feedback on Arthrozene. Unfortunately, I don’t have an amazing opinion about it either. I hope you managed to get a full refund for the bottles you returned.
Hi Heather, thanks for your review. I wanted to find an impartial review for Arthozene, and you’d I thoroughly and fair. What got me interested in this product is the sales claims that it may help restore some damage. I have OA in my knees and lower back primarily. I have had some luck with turmeric. I thought that the Arthrozene may help restore the meniscus, or at least one of the ingredients seems to have been studied for that. Do you think that is possible? My primary goal is to reduce the pain to eliminate the loads of Tylenol, naproxen sodium, and Baclofen I take daily. My secondary goal is to postpone Knee replacement and lumbar surgery, at least until a new procedure is approve, one which is running a US trial now.
I am considering the new surgery trial that would rebuild the meniscus and lumbar this via a specific type of stem cell injection, as well as cadaver bone but it would cost me a lot, $20K-$30K potentially. I use an oral CBD tincture at night, and topical CBD oil for pain during the day. Oral CBD seems to help, but I cant use during the day due to my adderal. On bad pain days I use a topical CBD/THC 1:1 ointment.
My goal is to alleviate the pain so I can exercise, and reduce the NSAID’s to ease up on my body and lose weight. TMI I am sure. One note, you said in your review that they claim that it works in five days. They definitely make it sound that way, but they actually say “in as few as” 5 days. Thanks again for your review, and any advice if you have a minute
Hi George, thanks for your feedback. I’m really sorry to hear about your problems, I totally understand how you feel. From what I understood from your comment, you haven’t actually tried Arthrozene, you’re only considering it – right?
Well, in my opinion it’s not the best product you could try (at least not alone). It may help, but I doubt it will solve all of your problems on its own. So let me explain what I would recommend instead.
1) You said your main goal is to decrease the pain and reduce the drugs you’re taking. The drugs you mentioned are NSAIDs and they’re designed to reduce inflammation and consequent pain. Now – the best herbal alternative to NSAIDs is turmeric, which you said you “had some luck with”. Do you mean that you used it and it helped? If yes, in what form did you use it (powder, pills, etc.)?
Turmeric has a very poor absorption normally, that’s why I always recommend associating it with bioperine (which increases its absorption dramatically). The powder is harder to associate with bioperine, that’s why I strongly recommend turmeric supplements instead (only some, as many don’t contain bioperine or any absorption booster). Besides bioperine, supplements also contain higher dosages of turmeric (1000-1500 mg is the best dosage in my opinion).
But once again, I don’t know in what form you used turmeric, so I would appreciate if you could get back to me with details. This would help me give you a better recommendation.
Anyway – turmeric should help with pain in a few weeks-months and it should let you decrease the dosage of pain medication.
2) You said your secondary goal is to postpone the surgeries. Well, I’m not a doctor but I will tell you what I learned from my own experience.
Since you need a replacement surgery and you have such a severe pain, you probably have little to no cartilage left. Only this could explain the terrible pain (in average forms of OA there is enough cartilage left and the pain isn’t that bad).
Now – for OA, I strongly recommend glucosamine and chondroitin supplements, because these 2 ingredients are the best cartilage re-builders currently. Their effect is better than collagen and hyaluronic acid (which works much better when injected directly into the joint). Supplements based on these 2 ingredients can re-build cartilages in most cases, but that’s mostly available when the person has some cartilage left. In your case, there’s very little to none – that’s why I can’t guarantee they’re going to work. If they do, it’s going to take over 3 months to start seeing a change.
But in my opinion, this alternative is worth trying because it only requires taking supplements. I usually recommend products with 1000-1500 mg of glucosamine SULFATE (not the HCl form) and under 500 mg of chondroitin. It’s the glucosamine that does most of the job, that’s why it requires a higher dosage. However, its effect is much better when combined with chondroitin (even if it’s in a much smaller dosage). Regarding a certain brand, I usually recommend a product from Vita Balance because it has the best price for its ingredients. But I have a longer list of my top recommended supplements here.
Now – most glucosamine + chondroitin supplements also contain anti-inflammatory herbs (turmeric, Boswellia, etc.). So in less severe cases, I don’t recommend people separate turmeric products – because they quantity they take from their glucosamine + chondroitin supplement is enough.
But in your case, the pain seems very severe – so I doubt the turmeric quantity from the glucosamine/chondoritin supplement would be enough. So please let me know how you are taking turmeric currently, so that I can understand what would work best for you.
Besides the supplement I recommended, I also advise you to use heating pads in order to decrease your stiffness after sitting down. You mentioned you’re using a CBD tincture/oil, which is excellent (in terms of pain). Exercising and losing pain should also help on the long term (especially with mobility). I also recommend you to check out this guide I made on treating OA naturally.
I’m waiting for your feedback with additional details and I’m really hoping I can help you.
I wanted to buy this but thought it was too expensive. My doctor said I should start taking a supplement additional to my treatment, because it wasn’t working as desired. I had a hard time deciding what I should buy because Arthrozene was heavily advertised so I thought it was the best thing out there. Too good I didn’t fall for it.
Later on I had a talk with my neighbor and he had actually used this product in the past. It was a waste of money, didn’t help him at all. He had painful knees and ended up having a replacement surgery in one of them, the pain was too much to bear. Anyway, he bought a large quantity of bottles and had one shipped every month back to him. At one point he wanted to stop but they wouldn’t agree, they said he sign up for a deal with a contract so he had to go on with it. From what I remember, he paid the bottles every month for a year before he could stop receiving them…but he didn’t use the supplement in the meantime.
So don’t fall for it, it’s expensive and they will also not let you quite your subscription whenever you want.
Hello Philip, thanks a lot for your feedback on Arthrozene.
I’m really sorry to hear about your neighbor’s experience with it and that he had to pay so much money even though he never used the pills. That was completely unfair and he should have gone to the police. As far as I know, no supplement brand has you sign a contract with them when you join their auto-shipping. They all say you can quit anytime (which isn’t true, obviously). But there’s surely no contract, so they don’t have the right to force you stay with them. Too bad your neighbor didn’t know this, he could have done something about it. But now it’s probably too late. However, instead of staying with Arthrozene all this time, he should have tried some other supplements. This might have helped him avoid surgery.
Now, I don’t know if you found a suitable supplement for your problem in the meantime. I don’t know what exact form of arthritis you have, so it’s hard to recommend you a certain supplement. But since you mentioned the replacement surgery, I’m guessing your problem is caused by osteoarthritis, so these recommendations might help. Also, try to check out these supplements, as they are the best ones I know when it comes to OA. I really hope this helps.
