Joint Right by Vita Sciences did help to relieve some knee aches and an aching shoulder. I found the product easy to apply and rub into the skin and it left no residue to rub off on my clothes. Nice.
However, there was a slight down side for me that might not apply to most folks. Some ingredient in the product produces a stinging "pepper" sort or feel. Not unbearable, but not really a lot to my liking. Also, even though I washed my hands several time, I found the product still had some remaining residue that irritated my eyes if I touched them. So that is just a cautionary word.
So it provides some relief and has a mildly irritating factor for me. I'll give it a 4-star rating.
Product Description (from Vita Sciences) - Targeted pain relief caused by inflamed joints—Vita Science Joint Right cream provides odor-free relief. Formulated with natural ingredients that have been scientifically established to work. Joint Right cream incorporates a unique combination of ingredients, our own BlueProfen complex, that work in 2 main ways to provide relief. Immediate relief is provided by bringing joint inflammation under control. Long term benefit comes from building up mucosal joint linings (lubricating the joint).
Joint inflammation is typically addressed using over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.), prescription steroids (such as prednisone), or COX2 inhibitors (Celebrex, etc.) available by prescription. There can be serious side effects from using any of these forms of treatment.
