Joint Restore Gummies Reviews
Prosper Wellness Joint Restore gummies were supposedly discovered by Dr. Ralph La Guardia, who extols, at length, the story that led to the creation of this amazing supplement with only two main ingredients.
This supplement claims not only to regrow joint tissues, but can actually replace knee surgery.
The incredible, tear-jerking story that is laid out on the website actually goes so far as to call out “big pharma” and call one of the ingredients a gift from Jesus Christ.
Product and Ingredients
Boswellia - is the ingredient that is called a gift from Jesus Christ. It is also known as Indian Frankincense and thereby is linked with the gifts the three magi brought to baby Jesus.
Boswellia is extracted from the bark of the Boswellia tree, which grows in the Middle East and Africa. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries.
Boswellia does show some promise in treating osteoarthritis in terms of pain that inhibits movement. Boswellia may also help with asthma, colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome – though more scientific research is needed to verify these claims.
Boswellia also shows some promise in treating tumors and cancer: studies suggest that it may help lower swelling postoperatively, as well as treating skin damaged after radiotherapy in breast cancer patients.
CBD - comes from the hemp plant, which is a species of Cannabis Sativa that only contains trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. The FDA has approved a prescription containing CBD for use as a treatment for seizure disorder. It also shows promise as a pain reliever and antispasmodic in those suffering from MS.
Preliminary data does show that CBD may help with chronic osteoarthritis pain and inflammation, but more scientific research is needed before these claims can be verified.
One of the many issues surrounding CBD is the fact that the manufacturing process does not undergo (excepting the CBD used for epilepsy) FDA approval, and the final products may differ wildly in terms of active ingredients.
CBD is a supplement that you will find enormous anecdotal evidence for – there are volumes of people online relating the many supposed benefits of CBD, but these claims have not been proved conclusively by scientific research.
Potential Side Effects
Side effects of Boswellia include diarrhea, nausea, and abdominal pain. Those who take blood thinning medication or antiplatelet drugs should not take Boswellia.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not take this supplement. Although they are similar, Boswellia should not be confused with guggul or myrrh.
Side effects of CBD include dry mouth, reduced appetite, diarrhea, and drowsiness. Those who are taking blood thinners should avoid CBD.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women and those who have liver disease or other liver problems should avoid taking CBD. This ingredient may also cause symptoms of Parkinson’s disease to worsen.
As previously stated, CBD is not a standardized product, and side effects may vary among brands. Also keep in mind that CBD could potentially cause a drug test to register as positive for marijuana.
How to Use
This supplement comes in gummy form, with one dose to be taken per day.
Cost and Price Plans
One bottle costs $79.97.
Customer service may be reached by calling 1-800-304-7284, with hours of operation listed vaguely as “around the clock.”
Customer Reviews & Complaints
The company website reports reviews averaging 4.5 stars out of 5, taken from 125 reviews.
Unfortunately, there isn’t much online feedback from independent sources and Google searches are overrun with affiliate websites promoting this product.
We consider this a red flag, as many times marketers use these tactics to bury unfavorable product reviews and quickly redirect people to sales pages to complete their purchase.
Where to Buy?
The product may be purchased only through the company website.
Competitors and Alternatives
Vimerson Health’s Glucosamine with Chondroitin, Turmeric, and MSM also contains Boswellia and has earned an impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon, taken from 23,519 reviews. A one-month supply will cost 26.87.
The Bottom Line
One of several issues we have with this product starts with the fact that “knee pain” is incredibly vague, so when you advertise that a product can eliminate knee pain, you are effectively saying that the supplement can fix osteoarthritis, ACL injuries, ligament injuries, bursitis, sprains, tendinitis, and the many other problems that can cause knee pain.
No, this supplement cannot address all of those issues.
Second, this supplement is not a surgeon. It cannot replace surgery. It may play to a patient’s fear of surgery, which is the worst possible reason to take a supplement.
The website also lets you know that knee surgery will be $50,000. Surgery prices cannot be given without explaining that different insurances cover different surgeries at different rates, and there is literally no way to tell exactly how much a surgery will cost before you have it.
The best you can do is to call your health insurance provider and ask your estimated patient responsibility for the surgery, which is not going to be $50,000.
The fact that the product sales page references your enemies as both surgeons and Big Pharma, and calls the supplement a gift from Jesus Christ is very bold. The language actually suggests that Big Pharma will actually grab this gift from Jesus Christ right out of your hands.
Next, when we talk about arthritis pain, know that there are many different types of arthritis, so you can't expect one supplement to be appropriate for every type of this disease. Pain treatments also vary greatly, with different patients experiencing different levels of pain.
There are many treatments for knee pain. Fear of surgery, or the cost of surgery, should not keep you from going to the doctor to have your knee pain evaluated.
Because this supplement is overpriced, the claims made are hyperbolic, and the company’s online footprint is dominated by recycled promotional material, we do not recommend it.
