My Heal N Soothe Review (For Arthritis) – Scam Or Real?
It’s time for my Heal N Soothe review, a supplement that I tried for one reason – its popularity.
But other than that, it doesn’t look too good – at least that was my first impression. Why I’m saying this?:
- no major ingredient
- low doses for some ingredients
- extremely expensive – $59 per month
- I found a lot of complaints
Many people I asked said that Heal N Soothe was a big scam.
Now – I tried this supplement myself, for one purpose – my arthritis.
Basically, I wanted to see if it’s as bad as they say or not. So what conclusion did I reach? You’ll find everything in the lines below.
Note: This review is based on my experience with this supplement. So it’s not the typical review, based on general info. I’m not trying to praise/criticize the product or its company, I am simply telling how it worked for me.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Heal N Soothe from Living Well Nutraceuticals
Quantity : 90 capsules
Best Actual Price: $59.00
Where I Bought It From: Ebay – that’s where I found the best price.
You can normally buy it from the official website, if you want a “free” bottle offer (I will explain you later what’s the truth behind that).
Designed For: Muscle and joint discomfort, according to the label.
But judging after the ingredients – I say it works better for inflammatory pain:
- It contains anti-inflammatory herbs
- Most ingredients aren’t good for anything else
So if you have other joints problems (except inflammation), I wouldn’t recommend it.
My Rating: 4 out of 10 – I would rate it even lower if it wasn’t for some positive reviews.
Worth Buying?: Definitely not. In my opinion, it has some major problems:
- pretty weak ingredients overall
- low doses
- a huge price
Besides, it didn’t even relieve my pain too well – on the contrary, I had additional problems. So I personally wouldn’t buy it again.
What I Liked About It
- Lots of authentic reviews about it (on Amazon though)
- You can buy it from other places, besides the official website – Ebay or Amazon
What I Didn’t Like About It
- No major ingredient in the focus
- Low doses for some of the ingredients
- Didn’t relieve my pain too well
- The pills (most likely) caused me a stomach pain
- Way too expensive for what it does ($59 per bottle)
- You actually have to pay $10 for the free bottle
- They put you on auto-shipping automatically, if you order the free bottle
#1. Ingredients (7.50 out of 10)
Heal N Soothe is probably the only supplement I know that doesn’t have one essential ingredient.
What do I mean by this?:
- It’s not based on glucosamine or turmeric (only a few mg of turmeric).
- There’s no substance in the focus.
- It contains lots of substances with minimal doses.
So what exactly do these pills contain? I tried to take each ingredient and see what it’s good for:
1. Systemic Enzyme Blend (750 mg) – this could be the major ingredient, but there’s very little info about it.
Besides – these enzymes are pretty weak to relieve chronic pain, from what I read.
Here’s what I found out:
- they are meant to reduce inflammation
- they can also decrease the pain
But as I said, I think they’re pretty weak to do that alone.
Also – 150 mg seems a really decent dose.
3. Citrus Bioflavonoids (90 mg) – that’s an antioxidant and it protects the joints from aging and damage.
From what I know, it’s not very effective for inflammation (compared to Boswellia).
4. Ginger Extract (90 mg) – Ginger can decrease inflammation, but it’s not as strong as Boswellia and Turmeric.
So at this dose, I doubt it can do anything major.
5. Other Ingredients – I didn’t take the next ones by turn because they have even lower doses.
So I don’t think they could help a lot – my opinion. But here’s what else it contains:
- Mojave Yucca (90 mg)
- Turmeric (60 mg)
- Alpha Lipoic Acid (50 mg)
- Rutin (30 mg)
- Devil’s Claw Extract (30 mg)
3 Conclusions On The Ingredients
Here’s the opinion I made about the supplement, based on its ingredient list:
#1 – Low Doses – Some of the ingredients have under average doses, compared to other products from the market.
I’m talking mostly about:
- Devil’s Claw Extract
Now – I’m not very familiar with the enzyme blend, but its dose isn’t very high either.
But as I don’t know the average dose, I won’t add it here.
#2 – Weak Ingredients – Besides the low doses, the ingredients themselves don’t look amazing. Why do I think this?
As I said above:
- there’s no major ingredient
- the enzyme blend could be the one, but it’s pretty weak
And when it comes to the rest – they have too low doses to relieve the pain all alone.
#3 – No Big Potential – That’s my impression.
I know Heal N Soothe is pretty popular – but that doesn’t automatically make it good.
And judging after what it contains, I don’t have very high expectations from it.
#2. Why I Tried This Supplement
I may have said it before, but the main reason why I bought Heal N Soothe was for my arthritis.
Yes, it was also popular, so I wanted to test it out.
But I had both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis so I wanted to see for myself. It was RA causing most issues:
- My pain was around a 6 (on pain scale).
- It was worse it my hands and elbows.
- I had morning stiffness that would normally last up to an hour.
- My pain would get worse in some days – it could end up to a 7 sometimes.
So I basically needed a natural anti-inflammatory – RA is caused by inflammation, that’s why.
Heal N Soothe did contain a lot of anti-inflammatory herbs, but in very low doses. So normally, I shouldn’t expect miracles from it.
But I wanted to give it a try and see what happens.
So that’s how my adventure with Heal N Soothe began.
#3. My Experience With This Supplement
Despite taking it for 30 days, I didn’t get a major improvement from these pills.
And not only that – I also had some stomach problems, which I suspect it’s because of them too.
So here’s how it worked:
- A minor improvement in my pain (from a 6 to a 4-5 maybe).
- My hands were stiff every morning for the same period – about an hour.
- There was no change in my arthritis flareups – they were as often as before.
- My overall shape didn’t get any better.
Basically, there was only a slight change in my pain – that was the whole improvement.
But I’m still not very sure if the change was real, because it was really minor.
That’s why these pills were kind of useless for me – in terms of effectiveness.
But here’s what problems they caused me:
- I started feeling a pain in my stomach a few days after I started the bottle
- the pain wasn’t too bad at first, but it was increasing
- a few days after I finished the pills, the pain also stopped
Was it because of Boswellia extract? Was it because of those enzymes? I have no idea.
But overall, the pain wasn’t strong enough to make me quit the pills. But it was them producing it – I know this for sure.
Normally, I wouldn’t complain about it. But since the pills didn’t work and they still produced me an extra pain – that was a problem, in my opinion.
The PROs – Not Much
Now let me tell you shortly the good and the bad things I found about Heal N Soothe.
But when it comes to the positive side – I couldn’t find lots of major things:
- you need to take 3 pills per day – not very comfortable
- the pills aren’t the smallest ones I’ve seen
- one bottle only lasts for a month
I would normally appreciate this kind of aspects in supplements. But when it comes to Heal N Soothe, none of them is available.
So I didn’t really manage to find a major advantage. If you know any, please let me know – but I didn’t seem to find any positive thing that really matters.
On the other hand, I have a lot of things I didn’t like about it. So the negative side is pretty long. But let’s take each thing by turn.
CON #1 – Weak Ingredients
I already mentioned this aspect, so I won’t enter any details.
But the point is – Heal N Soothe’s ingredients are pretty weak for a supplement that costs almost $60 per month:
- pretty low doses
- no major ingredient – except that enzyme blend
- no classic substance (or not in a decent dose)
In my opinion, a supplement with such ingredients doesn’t have high chances to relieve pain.
In fact, that was pretty visible in my case – it didn’t do anything major.
So the weak ingredients are the best explanation, if you ask me. That’s the #1 reason why I personally couldn’t recommend this product.
CON #2 – Didn’t Work
Once again, this supplement didn’t do anything for my arthritis:
- It didn’t decrease my pain considerably
- Didn’t improve my joints
- Didn’t help my stiffness
Despite taking the full recommended dose, I couldn’t see a big improvement. The only change I could see was in my pain – but it was something minor (about 2 numbers at most).
So I’m still wondering if it was real or just a placebo effect.
Therefore, I’m not sure this supplement could help people with severe pain. Maybe those with minor problems – yes.
But unless you have a mild form, I doubt it’s going to help tremendously.
And even then, I wouldn’t start with a $60 supplement when you can find some much cheaper.
CON #3 – Stomach Pain
That’s one of the things that bothered me most about Heal N Soothe. I might have been just me, I don’t know – but it was really frustrating.
So the pills gave me a stomach pain from the first days:
- It wasn’t the kind of pain that aches continuously.
- It felt like a burn sensation.
- At first, it didn’t bother me much.
But as time went on, it was getting more constant.
It started to bother me more everyday – but even so, it didn’t make me stop the pills. It wasn’t really that bad.
However, once I finished the bottle and stopped the treatment, it disappeared. Not immediately, but in a few days.
So it’s pretty clear that the pills were causing me this pain.
As I said, I don’t know if it’s just me or not – but maybe there are others too.
This side effect was really frustrating, especially for one reason:
- the pills didn’t do their job
- but even so, they produced me an extra pain
So I basically paid just for another pain, besides the one I already had. That’s really annoying.
CON #4 – Very Expensive
To be honest, Heal N Soothe is one of the most expensive joint supplements I know.
Besides, it’s way (but way!) too overpriced for what it offers:
- no special ingredients with low doses
- only 1 month supply
- doesn’t even relieve the pain considerably
I personally would not pay even $30 for it – it would be too much. But considering it costs almost $60 per bottle, it really sounds like a bad joke.
In my view, there isn’t anything impressive inside these pills. So why do they cost so much?
That’s why I would personally not buy this thing again.
But what about that free bottle thing? Well, that’s where I wanted to get – because it’s not as great as it seems.
CON #5 – Free Bottle Issues
That’s probably the most important part about Heal N Soothe. So here’s the thing:
- They promise to give you a free bottle for your first order.
- After that, they automatically put you on auto-shipping.
- But according to then, you can stop anytime.
That’s what their website says.
Now, I have to admit that I didn’t buy my bottle directly for them – so I won’t really speak from experience.
But I did take a deep look at their site and even made an order (up to a point) – so I could see for real how this thing goes.
That’s how I found out that this “free bottle” thing isn’t such a great deal as you might think:
- They say the first bottle is free – but you actually have to pay the shipping ($10).
- They say you can cancel anytime – but they still ask for your credit card details and everything.
- Lastly, they don’t let you choose whether you want the auto-shipping or not – they just reship the product every month without asking.
To me – this doesn’t seem very fair.
But here’s another interesting fact:
- The second bottle (the first one that is auto-shipped) is shipped for free.
- And so are the others that are sent via auto-shipping.
So those $10 that you pay for the shipping of your first bottle is actually not the shipping – it’s some kind of price.
I mean, they probably have a contract with the delivery company – otherwise why would they offer free shipping for the rest of orders? Do you get my point?
So this free bottle deal is far from being a deal – you actually pay for it and you also put yourself at risk. That’s what I think.
CON #6 – Fake Guarantee?
Last but not least, it seems like Heal N Soothe also has problems with their money-back guarantee.
Now once again, I won’t be speaking from experience here – I didn’t order from them so I didn’t have the chance to request a refund.
But I found out a lot of reviews on Amazon saying the same thing – the company didn’t send their money back.
So here’s the thing – according tot their website:
- they will give your money back for every unopened bottle
- they will also refund you for the opened bottles
However, people who bought this supplement had a different opinion:
- they refund you for the unopened bottles
- they don’t give your money back for the opened bottles – even though they are intact, with 90 pills
Now, in my opinion, this seems like not keeping your promise. So the company is not very transparent from this point of view.
If you don’t want to refund people, why claim that you will? It just doesn’t make sense.
So this thing completely disappointed me about Heal N Soothe.
My Final Verdict – Is It A Scam?
Short answer: Not really – but it’s not amazing either.
Now – as long as some people were satisfied, I can’t call it a scam. It surely works for some.
But from the reviews I read – there were mostly unsatisfied customers (including me).
I don’t mean to make any accusations without a clear basis, but Heal N Soothe doesn’t see a great product to me:
- pretty weak ingredients overall
- most have low doses
- extremely expensive – $59 per bottle
- didn’t do much for my pain
- the pills produced me a stomach pain
- the “free bottle” is not as free as they say
- they don’t always keep their word when it comes to the guarantee (that’s what many people say)
Overall, I couldn’t see any reason why I should buy Heal N Soothe.
Believe me, I really tried to find a good point about it – but I just didn’t find too many.
So I personally can’t recommend this supplement.
It’s totally up to you if you decide to buy it or not – but I spend so much money on it again.
