Vitapost ProJoint Plus Review – Best Supplement for Joint Health?

Hey Guys,  How are you all?  For today’s post, this will be my Vitapost ProJoint Plus Review.  This will be my 3rd post now about Vitaposts products as I also reviewed Vitapost’s ACV Pure (Apple Cider Vinegar Supplement) and their Turmeric and Ginger Supplement.  I am still looking into the company as a whole but anyway I’ve decided to review this one because it was recommended to me in an email from one of my new vendors.

So here is my Vitapost ProJoint Plus Review…

Now, have you ever found yourself making this kind of jokes…

“My knees are like an Old Man’s”.
“Ouch, my back hurts.  Must be getting old”.
“No, I can’t get up those stairs, they’ll walk up to me before I walk up to them”.

I used to find these jokes quite funny once upon a time but now, not so much.  As the older, I have got the more the irony has started to appear.  The things I used to enjoy doing I must admit they aren’t as easy to do as they used to be and much of these things are now like a distant memory.

Although, as I’ve looked into this a bit more what has occurred to me is this is because of my joints.  The more I have researched this as well something has been brought to my attention that alongside regular exercise it is recommended to try

“glucosamine sulfate”

This is the chemical compound found in the fluid areas surrounding your joints.  It’s an odd one actually as they say if you want to find this nutrient inside food then your best bet is from the shells of shellfish.  ???? Seriously, I should probably look into this a bit further but anyway this is why apparently that Glucosamine Sulfate in its supplement form is the better option.

So, as you may expect this is why you might be interested in taking a look at ProJoint Plus by Vitapost.

Vitapost ProJoint Plus Review – Best Joint Health Supplement?


Introduction;

So Vitapost ProJoint Plus is a supplement that contains 1500mg of Glucosamine Sulfate per serving.  If you are looking for a supplement to improve your joint health than this may be of some interest to you.  Glucosamine you may or may not have heard of before but this and another supplement called chondroitin are second most commonly used in the USA, only after fish oil.  Which it is suspected is because these are compounds not easily obtained through a diet.

The other reason may be that more people are starting to realise how important it is to look after their joint health.  Something that as we get older only serves to be more important as we go on.


But What is Joint Health?

Right well, I didn’t really know too much myself before I began this research but here goes.  Our joints are where 2 or more bones join.  As a rough estimate in the average human body, there is between 250-350 joints, and actually, this depends on what we define joints as.  Joint health is basically how healthy these joints are.

*Some classify joints as where 2 bones join but others say it is a point where bones meet for the purpose of movement. 

Moving joints in case you’re wondering (the other type) include ligaments, tendons, cartilage, synovial membrane, synovial fluid, bursas and meniscus.  Out of this Cartilage is often the most important.


This is something to definitely learn more about if you are interested in Joint Health.

Learning About Cartilage

Cartilage is connective tissue.  Its role is to connect, support and even sometimes separate other tissues and organs.  It’s interestingly made of mostly water which decreases with age.  It is both tough as it is flexible, which makes it perfect for supporting our joints.  Having healthy joint cartilage makes it easier for us to move about.

It has been a theory of scientists that you can support the health of cartilage by naturally supplementing the ingredients found in and around the Cartilage.  Glucosamine for one is a type of sugar that helps repair and form new cartilage.  It usually works in conjunction with Chondroitin which gives cartilage it’s elasticity and helps it to retain water.

It as a whole (cartilage) is maybe quite like your favourite pair of jeans.  Which even though they might seem tough and flexible are still easy enough to tear, and damage.  Also, to repair your favourite jeans like damaged cartilage this is not easily done.  Exactly why it is so important to take care of your cartilage and your overall joint health.


How to Support Joint Mobility

In definition, Joint Mobility is the range of passive motion that occurs in the articulation between bones.  Its measurement is made by the total angular motion within each joint’s available degrees of freedom.  Simply said Joint mobility is your joints range of motion or movement.  For example – how much can you bend or straighten your knee.  Basically, limited joint mobility can mean a limited lifestyle.

For what is defined as normal joint mobility it usually depends on the joint.  If you take your shoulder, for example, this goes into flexion at 160 degrees whilst the hip extends at 5.  For anybody that has competed in sports in the past or any kind of fitness program than it is likely that they have done some kind of joint mobility exercises.  As we get older how mobile our joints are can also have an effect on our overall health and function.

In Summary – the Bones of the Matter

So, as the saying goes – “Prevention is the Best Medicine”.  Whatever you may be looking for whether it’s preventative joint support or worse pre-existing joint issues the good news is that there is still something that can be done to support your joint health today, and help avoid more problems with your joints tomorrow.

Vital Ingredients for Better Joint Health

Actually, if you look at a wide array of joint health supplements there are a lot them (not surprisingly) that contain some form of Glucosamine and Chondroitin inside.  This is kind of what people should expect to be fair, as both are crucial ingredients for Joint health but with a lot of good joint health supplements what the consumer may find is that these also include a wide range of other beneficial ingredients.

For example below is a mixture of ingredients that might be found in a good joint health supplement;


#1 – Glucosamine Sulfate

I have already mentioned this one already I know but as this is such an important ingredient I would just to add this to this list.  Glucosamine is the chemical compound that is found naturally surrounding our joints.  Its natural role is to stop our bones from rubbing against each other.

It is vital for the assistance of Joint Health and Improved Joint Mobility.

This incredible ingredient is found most of the time in Joint Health Supplements and its addition is not too difficult to understand why, when once you know what it does.  If you actually compare different supplements you will see that some contain Glucosamine Sulfate whilst others contain Glucosamine Hydrochloride.

The difference I think is that Glucosamine in its Hydrochloride form is not as effective, as in its Sulfate form, and actually, some studies have even said that Glucosamine Hydrochloride does not work at all.

The other thing what you will find is that within different forms of Joint Health Supplements they will use 2 different forms of Glucosamine Sulfate.  The most effective type is one extracted from actual shellfish (found inside Projoint Plus) and the other a more synthetic form.  The latter (I think) might be better for some people if they are, say Vegan or allergic to Shellfish but personally, I think if one form is closer to the real form than I would rather try that…

To find out which type your joint health supplement uses. A good idea is to look for an allergy warning.  If it says it “Contains Shellfish” than this likely means there is a very good chance it is the more potent form found inside.

Anyway after Glucosamine Sulfate the next ingredient you should look out for is…


#2 – Chondroitin Sulfate

This second compound Chondroitin Sulfate works very closely together with Glucosamine and can be found naturally in the cartilage surrounding the joints.  It is what is responsible for the elasticity and resistance of healthy cartilage.

Chondroitin Sulfate is vital for joint strength since it constitutes the majority of glycosaminoglycans in articular cartilage. Articular cartilage is the tissue that covers the bottom of bones where they come together to form into joints.  This has been confirmed in many studies – the efficacy of Chondroitin.  One of these studies that are maybe best known is The Glucosamine/Chondroitin Arthritis Intervention Trial.

It is widely believed that because of this trial many supplements for joint health use both Glucosamine and Chondroitin together.  Although maybe one thing to note about Chondroitin compared to Glucosamine Sulfate it is much tougher for the body to absorb.  For this reason Vitapost Projoint Plus only includes 150mg of Chondroitin Sulfate compared to 1500mg for Glucosamine Sulfate

Aside from this ProJoint Plus also uses

#3 – Natural Extracts

Inside Vitapost ProJoint Plus are 3-different types of Natural extracts.  Bromelain from pineapples, curcumin from turmeric and Boswellia  All serve their very own different purposes.  This I will explain further below;

So for #1, Bromelain is a protein-digestive enzyme. It is found in the delicious juice and fruit of the pineapple but also is found in the less-edible pineapple stem. The website PubMed reviewed many clinical studies on the uses of bromelain for joint health, with overall positive results.

The next #2 Curcumin the active chemical found inside Turmeric is another interesting choice for using within joint health supplements.  I recently look at Turmeric in my post 16 Detox Diet Foods for Weight Loss but this is actually something that has popped up again, and again in my other reviews.  For me it’s the inclusion within ProJoint Plus really is not surprising.

Turmeric is only included in a very low dose within ProJoint Plus – only 150mg – but it is definitely something to look at taking in other forms.  You can find my review for Vitaposts Ginger and Turmeric Supplement in my other review.

As for #3 Boswellia Extract, this is added because of its age-old reputation as a powerful ingredient for naturally treating joint health issues.  It doesn’t have too much science backing up its effectiveness but none the less it is an interesting addition and has a lot of scientists very excited about its untapped potential.


Other Ingredients Inside ProJoint Plus

Projoint Plus ingredients label

Alongside the 1500mg of Glucosamine Sulfate, the Chondroitin Sulfate and also the natural extracts it is also interesting to look at the other ingredients inside of Vitapost ProJoint Plus.  There is a few I’m not familiar with such as methionine, quercetin, and methylsulfonylmethane.  Here is a short summary of each of these products;

So let’s start with Methionine.  This is an essential amino acid found in our body’s and is packed full of antioxidants.  This is actually pretty easy to obtain naturally and can be found in a range of foods including meat, fish and dairy products.  It is also very easy to absorb so it is actually quite abundant in a lot of people anyway but still a small dose is added to ProJoint Plus of 25mg per serving.

The same also applies to Quercetin and MSMQuercetin is a bioactive flavonoid that can be beneficial for joint health when taking in the right dosage.  MSM short for Methylsulfonylmethane is a chemical found in the body responsible for producing natural collagen and glucosamine.  Its main component is Sulphur and it’s a combination that helps build both healthy bones and joints.

Short Summary of ProJoint Plus Ingredients;

So, in summary, ProJoint Plus is both a combination of both chemical compounds found in the body and natural extracts.  It doesn’t contain a big huge list that sounds like they’ve come from a chemical plant.

The things to note are that although you might not be able to tell the difference between the Boweila and Quercetin inside, for example, the concentration of both the Glucosamine and Chondroitin together along with everything else appears very promising.  Below is a short synopsis of what you can expect to achieve by taking this supplement;

  • Multiple studies have shown Glucosamine works best alongside Chondroitin with both working together.
  • The Glucosamine/Chondroitin combination is believed to provide every support to healthy joints.
  • You should when choosing a Joint Health Supplement to look on the label for Glucosamine Sulfate as opposed Glucosamine Hydrochloride because the Sulfate form is backed by more research.
  • Bromelain and Curcumin have been shown in studies to both be effective for improving joint health whilst Bosweila Extract although it hasn’t had as many studies show some very promising signs for future research.
  • The other supporting ingredients Methinoinne, Quercetin and MSM are known to have powerful antioxidant properties that can boost Joint Health.

Vitapost ProJoint Plus Review – Best Joint Health Supplement?

What is VitaPost ProJoint Plus?

So what is ProJoint Plus by VitaPost?  Well, it’s a dietary supplement that I think is pretty clear.  It’s designed to support joint health and is made with a mixture of natural chemical compounds and herbal extracts.

This I’ve pretty much already covered I know but what else?  OK, right I’m sure I’ve mentioned as well that the main benefit of taking ProJoint Plus is that it can strengthen cartilage and boost joint health.  Well, there is that and also the other thing is that a good percentage of these ingredients cannot be obtained from common foods.

Such as the Glucosamine Sulfate found inside is extracted from the shells of Shellfish.  This I have mentioned already as well but anyway if you are allergic to Shellfish *Do Not Take this Supplement!* 

So…  that much is clear do not take ProJoint Plus if your allergic to Shellfish but otherwise…


Who is VitaPost Projoint Plus For?

For starters, a very important thing to note is ProJoint Plus is not meant to be used as a replacement for things like exercise and other things you may already to better your Joint Health.  This is a supplement so is designed to be taken alongside anything you already do.

So ProJoint Plus is for… anyone that wants to make a conscious effort to improve joint health and boost the everyday support of healthy joints.

But ProJoint Plus is not for…  anyone that is expecting some kind of magical, miracle cure, and certainly not for anybody that isn’t willing to do the work necessary that comes with taking ProJoint Plus.


VitaPosts Recommendation…

To effectively take VitaPost ProJoint plus it is recommended that you take 3 capsules a day.  This is a little different than the recommendations of other supplements which may suggest a dosage of 1 or 2 capsules.  But this is because that ProJoint Plus contains other ingredients that these other supplements do not.

For faster results, you can instead take 6 capsules a day for the first 2 weeks.  You don’t have to do this but this may give quicker relief if you are new to taking this supplement.

As for price another attractive thing about ProJoint Plus is its mid-range price.  The cost is less than $30 for 1 bottle and you can also make further savings buying this supplement in bulk.

Each bottle contains 60 caps so about 20 servings which should last around 3-weeks per bottle.

Before taking ProJoint Plus though like any Supplement available it is recommended to talk to a GP beforehand and to avoid completely if you have an allergy to Shellfish.


and Finally just my Overall thoughts

In Conclusion…

Vitapost ProJoint Plus Review – Best Joint Health Supplement?

So, if you are having trouble with your joints there is actually a number of things you can do other than taking supplements.  Work on your posture, sit up straighter, straighten out your shoulders, stand up and do your stretches.   Supplements can help for sure but are no guaranteed immediate fix – no by a long shot.

However, research does definitely support some supplements and more so what is inside of certain supplements with ProJoint Plus being no different.  In fact, every ingredient inside has research that supports its inclusion for improving Joint Health.  Except maybe not Bosweila Extract which is added more because of its reputation through history but anyway this is kind of VitaPosts thing to add these kinds of natural remedies to their products.

So if you are looking for a supplement for Joint Health then it is worth trying ProJoint Plus out as its ingredients are backed by science.  Glucosamine and Chondroitin Supplements are 2 of the most popular types of supplement in the USA – if you would like to find out more check out these resources below;
