Arthri-D3 is a supplement meant to promote joint health. It claims to be unique in that it contains N-Acetyl-Glucosamine, an ingredient derived from shellfish which, the manufacturer claims, is important for joint health. This ingredient is said to have been shown effective in clinical studies in combating joint pain. However, it seems that there is not very much clinical evidence linking N-Acetyl-Glucosamine with benefits to joint inflammation or arthritis, so this begs the question – does this product really work and can its claims be trusted?
Read our full Arthri-D3 review below to get the full picture.
What’s In Arthri-D3
- 7mg Vitamin C (as calcium ascorbate)
- 1,000mg Vitamin D (as cholecalciferol)
- 40mg Magnesium (as oxide)
- 960 mg Proprietary Blend
The manufacturer does not provide us with the quantities of the ingredients in its proprietary blend, which is somewhat surprising, the claim that its product is unique in offering N-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine, but then they refuse to give us the quantity of this ingredient. In addition, this product is not suitable for vegetarians or those who are allergic to shellfish, as it contains both shellfish and gelatin.
How Do You Use Arthri-D3?
The dosage is two tablets twice daily with meals.
The label states that individuals who are pregnant, nursing, or anyone who is taking medications should first consult with a doctor before taking this product.
The price for one bottle, which contains 120 capsules or a 30-day supply, is listed on the manufacturer’s website as $109.99, but then when one clicks on the checkout button one is given the price of $115.49 plus $10.49 for shipping. There is a discount if one enrolls in a monthly refill program. Once again, there is a discrepancy in the price of this automatic rebilling option – on the same page listing it as $94.99 plus $8.39 shipping per month, and lower down listing it as $104.99 plus $10.49 per month – the checkout matches this second price.
Other pricing options are a buy-2-get-1-free offer, priced at $230.98 plus $18.89 per month but it’s unclear how this works; how frequently one’s payment method will be charged and how many bottles will be shipped on recurring orders for this option.
Is There A Guarantee?
The manufacturer does offer a guarantee for this product – for purchases of one bottle one has 30 days from the date of delivery to return the item, for purchases of three bottles one has 90 days from the date of delivery to return it. Both used and unused bottles may be returned, but there is a restocking fee of $12.
The Conclusion of Our Arthri-D3 Review
Arthri-D3 claims to offer a unique product that is all-natural and utilizes N-Acetyl-Glucosamine for the promotion of joint health and reduction of joint inflammation. It is backed by a guarantee of 30-days for single-bottle purchases or 90-days for purchases of three bottles. Yet there is a marked lack of clinical evidence to support the efficacy of N-Acetyl-Glucosamine for relieving joint inflammation. Customer reviews are very mixed, with some people saying they experienced results while others said that they did not. Other complaints were that the price was very high and that it was not always easy to receive refunds or to cancel recurring payments. In short, if you are looking for relief for your joint pain that is backed by clinical research, this product is probably not for you.
