The search for arthritis pain relief is becoming more commonplace, as the “baby boom” generation comes of age. This growing need in the marketplace has given rise to many products claiming “we can take away your arthritis pain and change your life”.
Arthritis pain relief methods range from drugs on the one hand, to a focus on entirely natural ingredients on the other. This article is about completely relieving arthritis pain from the latter point of view. In my view, natural is always best and most definitely the safest. You want to nourish your system, not override or suppress it. You want to cure the problem, not bury the symptoms.
We are reviewing a product called Supple – The Answer to Arthritis Pain in a Delicious Drink. The promoters claim it contains “powerful ingredients discovered by over 13 million people to naturally rebuild cartilage and relieve the symptoms of arthritis”.
The idea is that you drink one bottle per day and they claim that “you should feel a significant difference within 7 days and better every week”. They give a 30 day money back guarantee, but I notice from the ‘fine print’ that to get it you must call their Customer Satisfaction Dept for a Return Authorisation Number and there is a limit of one return event per person. Perfectly reasonable I suppose.
So what are the advantages of Supple, as opposed to arthritis pain relief in tablet or capsule form? It is well known today that our bodies absorb far more of any nutrient product if taken in liquid organic, preferably colloidal, form, rather than tablets. More efficient absorbtion means greater beneficial effect.
The two best known ingredients for arthritis pain relief are glucosamine and chondroitin. Many products contain these items but not in a form that the body can best utilise. Combine this with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and you have a synergistic combination to help your autoimmune system heal and nourish inflamed joints.
The Supple website is very colourful and informative. It even has videos you can watch. They explain how their product works and provide testimonials. There is also a page explaining why their ingredients are superior, so much so, that they claim their “breakthrough formulation” provides “pharmaceutical strength” arthritis pain relief in a natural product that avoids the risks associated with drugs.
Losing weight is also important to relieving joint pain in the legs and hips. The providers of Supple also claim that their arthritis drink will help you lose weight, which has to be a bonus.
This delicious, fruity flavoured, answer to arthritis pain certainly appears attractive.

The Grim Reaper
We’ve all heard about Vioxx, right?
But the pushing of this drug had such disastrous consequences, it’s well worth telling this dark little tale again…
Vioxx was developed as a powerful anti-inflammatory drug that could combat the painful effects of arthritis and rheumatism.
Basically the drug company knew there was a market for this product, and where there’s a market, there’s profit.
So they pumped $100 million a year into marketing the drug, to make sure everyone knew about it, and everyone took it.
But there was one little problem…
The Wall Street Journal reported that Vioxx eventually led to more than 27,000 heart attacks and sudden cardiac deaths.
Postively irritating when it’s making you $2.55 billion isn’t it?
So the drug company stuck their greedy head in the sand, and only pulled the drug when it absolutely had to.
Death’s not enough, but lawsuits… well, that’s serious.
And it’s not just Vioxx that causes problems…
Around 107,000 people are said to be hospitalized thanks to bad reactions with NSAIDS (“Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs” – the group of drugs Vioxx belonged to). And at least 16,500 NSAID-related deaths occur each year among arthritis patients.
If ever there was a set of statistics that would make me doubt the integrity of a large drugs company ever again, these are it. All my bleating might prove a point, but it doesn’t make your joints any better, does it.
So what CAN you do…?
Natural is best – again
