What’s the best way to use Joint Mints?

Use two lozenges per day.

The vast majority of users obtain good results using two (2) lozenges each day, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon or evening. Exact timing isn’t important, and the lozenges can be taken on an empty or full stomach.

Let the lozenge dissolve in your mouth.

Let each lozenge dissolve in your mouth for at least five (5) minutes before chewing. Longer is better.

You don’t need to hold the lozenge under your tongue. It’s too big for that anyway.   

A few people do better on three lozenges per day.

Individuals with severe pain, or who have not improved using two lozenges per day, may see better results by using three (3) lozenges per day. 

We do not recommend using more than three lozenges per day.

As you improve, try decreasing your dose.

Once your pain is nearly (or entirely) gone, try reducing your dose to just one lozenge per day. Resume two lozenges per day if symptoms return or worsen. 

Most people (but not all) can eventually maintain symptom relief by using just one lozenge per day.    

Continue using one lozenge each day to maintain joint health.

We recommend continued use of Joint Mints at a reduced dose as a way of maintaining joint health.

What do Joint Mints do?

Joint Mints reduce inflammation, which is the underlying cause of most joint pain.

By reducing inflammation, Joint Mints eliminate most joint pain for most people. They also relieve frequently associated symptoms like stiffness, fatigue and poor sleep.

Will I need to keep taking Joint Mints ‘forever’?

Once your pain is nearly (or entirely) gone, try reducing your dose to just one lozenge per day. Resume two lozenges per day if symptoms return or worsen.

Most people can eventually maintain symptom relief by using just one lozenge per day.

We recommend continued use of Joint Mints at a reduced dose as a way of maintaining joint health.

Do Joint Mints work for back pain?

Yes, Joint Mints generally work well for back pain, especially chronic back pain (back pain that has lasted more than six months.) 

Do Joint Mints contain glucosamine or chondroitin?

No. Joint Mints are different.

Joint Mints do not contain glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM, or any any of the ‘standard’ joint health supplements.

Do Joint Mints re-build cartilage?

Joint Mints reduce inflammation, which may allow your body to repair and replace damaged cartilage.   

More on re-building cartilage

People often think of cartilage as something that gradually ‘wears away’ as we age, much like the tread on a tire. Once it’s gone there’s not much to do except get a new tire (or a new joint.) 

But cartilage is actually living tissue. In a healthy joint, cartilage is replaced at the same rate as it’s broken down, so there’s no net loss (or gain) – regardless of your age.

Certain types of inflammation, such as that seen in osteoarthritis, disrupt normal cartilage metabolism. The rate of cartilage break-down increases even as the rate of replacement slows. The net result is a gradual loss of cartilage.  

By reducing inflammation, Joint Mints allow for the resumption of cartilage repair and replacement.     

Your body knows how to re-grow cartilage. It’s a process that’s been going on since before you were born. Given the opportunity (a joint free of inflammation,) your body will work to repair damaged cartilage.

That may take time, but it doesn’t require you to ‘supplement’ the building blocks of cartilage (e.g. glucosamine & chondroitin.) Your body has plenty of those. Don’t waste your money.

 

Should I check with my doctor before using Joint Mints?

Are there any side effects?

No serious side effects have been reported in connection with the use of Joint Mints.

That’s not surprising, given that each of the herbs in Joint Mints has at least a thousand year history of generally safe use.

Nonetheless, since each person is different and because any ingested product may cause side effects, be alert for possible side effects and discontinue use if you experience any negative side effects. 

Can diabetics use Joint Mints?

Joint Mints are sweetened with a very small amount of rebiana, manufactured by Cargill (trade name: “Truvia.”)

Cargill represents that their rebiana product has no effect on the glycemic index and that it is well tolerated by type 2 diabetics.

The American Diabetes Association reports that rebiana from Cargill (“Truvia” – the sweetener in Joint Mints,) has no effect on blood glucose levels.

Can children use Joint Mints?

Joint Mints are not recommended for children.

Check with your doctor or your child’s pediatrician before using, especially if your child is under the age of 12 or using prescription medication.

Are Joint Mints gluten free?

Yes, Joint Mints are gluten free.

Are Joint Mints dairy free?

Yes, Joint Mints are dairy free.

How do Joint Mints taste?

Taste is very subjective, but most people like or at least tolerate the taste of Joint Mints.

Among those who initially struggle with taste (about 10% of users,) most will gradually become accustomed to it.

Not surprisingly, taste becomes relatively less important as people feel their joint pain diminishing.
