Joint Pain Hack is said to be able to completely get rid of joint pain in just 30 minutes, but can it really?
Or is Joint Pain Hack a scam that you would be better off avoiding?
If you are questioning the legitimacy of this supplement then good for you. The promotional material is ridiculous and my first impression was that it seems way too good to be true.
After starting to look into it, it seems that most of the reviews are just promoting it and not really offering very good info, which is why I decided to write my own.
Will it work? Is it worth the cost? Is it a scam? I'll go over all of this...
Joint Pain Hack is a joint health supplement manufactured by the company Nutrition Hacks, who is also behind Fungus Hack and Memory Hack.
There are 3 areas that are the focus of this supplement: reduction of pain, rebuilding cartilage, and re-hydrating the joints to keep them healthy.
However, I am hesitant to believe all that is said about this product because of how it is marketed and because some of the claims made simply don't make sense. For example: the articular cartilage that is in our joints does not regrow due to the fact that there are no blood vessels in the cartilage and red blood cells carrying oxygen cannot reach damaged areas.
This is all pretty well known.
There are a few different sales pitches floating around the internet promoting Joint Pain Hack but they are all fairly similar.
One popular one you might have seen is a video I took a screenshot of here:
.. and there is also a written text version I came across like this:
I'll be talking about the text version because it seems to be more heavily promoted right now.
Like many of the somewhat 'shady' health product promotions online, this starts out with a story (probably fake) about some guy named Sam Pitt (also probably fake) who has joint pain so bad that he almost kills himself--and of course this little incident leads to "the BIGGEST breakthrough to relieve joint pain that you or I will ever see in our lifetimes".
And of course we are told that this 'hack' can get rid of your joint pain in an incredibly small amount of time... "in as little as 30 minutes to be exact"...
As I was expecting to hear before I made it through the entire sales pitch, they of course tell us that the medical industry is covering up the truth and keeping this 100% natural joint pain cure a secret just so that they can make money selling us drugs like Aspirin and so on.
While I definitely don't trust the medical industry 100%, I trust this guy even less.
In the sales pitch I read, the guy claims he discovered this "secret" from a stuntman, and claims that it is a very common hack used by stuntmen all over.
The sales pitch is meant to scare people--to scare us into purchasing the product being promoted.
The backstory of this Sam Pitt guy is absolutely horrific--he has one of the most horrible cases of joint pain I've ever heard of--so bad that he almost kills himself over it.
...but of course there is a good chance it is all made-up... because it sounds an awful lot like some of the many other ridiculous sales pitches I've come across while reviewing other shady products, such as Ear Clear Plus for example.
As mentioned, one of the claims made is that this supplement can restore cartilage. It is said to have a chondroitin and glucosamine complex that "has been shown to rebuild the joint cushion [cartilage]".
BUT, also as mentioned, this doesn't seem to be possible. According to WebMD, "it has not been proven that glucosamine and chondroitin... rebuild cartilage"-- and there are plenty of other reliable sources that state the same thing.
In the sales pitch there is a lot of emphasis put on this supplement being the ONLY supplement with this special combination of ingredients..
The ingredients included (that I know of) are as follows...
"Agent Orange" - Yes, they literally call the one ingredient "agent orange", as if it is something spectacular and top secret, which it is not.
I'm guessing that they are referring to turmeric here, which I have read Joint Pain Hack does contain from other reviews.
Turmeric, or rather curcumin which is a compound in turmeric, does possess some pretty powerful anti-inflammatory properties that are well proven with research--HOWEVER, the quality and concentration of the turmeric extract is something I don't know, and this could make a world or difference.
Bioperine - While I didn't here this ingredient mentioned in the sales pitch, it is mentioned in other reviews and it makes perfect sense that it would be included here.
Bioperine is black pepper extract that helps increase the absorption of things like turmeric, which your body won't absorb very well all by itself.
Hyaluronic Acid - This is for joint hydration. It is produced naturally by the body, but supplementing some more can be a good. It is found in high amounts in connective tissue, the skin, and the eyes.
Chondroitin & Glucosamine - These two supplements are very popular in joint pain product, but their effectiveness hasn't been proven all that well. According to Arthritis.org and NIH.gov, there really isn't hard evidence showing that they help with arthritis conditions.
There are also other ingredients which I have had trouble finding out about. They are not stated in the sales presentation nor are they listed on the actual product page on NutritionHacks.com.
However, from reading what others have wrote online it seems that additional ingredients include:
Let me just put it like this: they definitely WILL NOT work like you are led to believe.
The science evidence supporting much of the claims made is lacking and overall I don't see anything that special about this supplement compared to others with the same ingredients, or at least much of the same ingredients.
I know they tell us that this supplement is "special" because it contains the perfect combination of everything, but this is just a marketing stunt and as far as I know holds no truth.
The price depends on how many bottles you want to purchase. Purchasing just 1 bottle costs $69 but if you purchase more the price is discounted as follows...
They claim that the original price for just 1 bottle is originally $99 and that the $69 is a discount to begin with, but this seems more like a marketing stunt to me--because honestly $99 for 1 bottle would be a massive rip-off, and even $69 for one bottle is still quite an expensive investment for what you are getting here.
Overpriced? In my opinion absolutely.
On the website it is stated that there is a 180 day money-back guaranteed. They specifically state that "we'll refund you to the last penny, no questions asked", but who knows how true this actually is.
*Note: You will have to pay for return shipping if you want a refund.
Your first step to getting a refund would be to contact the Raposo Fitness Enterprises support team (this is the company behind the Nutrition Hacks Company).
Lack of Information
The overall lack of information is a big concern for me, especially when it comes to supplements like this that you have to ingest.
Neither in the sales presentation nor on the actual product listing on the official website do they give a list of ingredients and the amount of each ingredient, and this is just one example.
Something that I find strange is how the company behind Nutrition Hacks, Raposo International Enterprises Inc., is registered in Barbados...
Why not in the USA? After all, the owner of this company is from the USA.
Could it be that the company is registered here to escape liability and get away with more unethical practices?... just a thought.
Also, does this mean you will have to return your products to Barbados, which would deter pretty much anyone from doing so due to high shipping costs?? Probably not, but I'm not entirely sure and it's also worth a thought.
The incredibly misleading promotions making this supplement sound like a miracle worker is obviously another major concern.
This brings up trust issues once again. Can you trust a product that is promoted in such a way?
While I wouldn't call this supplement a complete scam, it is pretty obvious that the company is misleading us with the promotions, much of which is likely made up and/or unproven.
Now if you call something a scam that is misleading and lures people to buy in like this then you could call it a scam. I guess it depends on what your definition of a scam is.
Joint Pain Hack does have some potential to help with joint pain, but overall I am very disappointed with what I see here. It certainly does not live up to the hype.
It does have potential to help reduce inflammation and pain, but since I don't know the potency of the ingredients I can't really say much here. It also can help keep your joints more lubricated with the hyaluronic acid it provides, so it's not a complete bust--but it isn't going to magically repair your damaged cartilage and will not work as claimed.
But like I said, it does have some potential and if you do still want to buy it you can purchase Joint Pain Hack on the official website here, but I'm personally not going to be recommending it.
