- Contains three effective ingredients for joint health – MSM, turmeric, and Boswellia
- Black pepper extract helps to enhance absorption
- The dosage of the key ingredients – turmeric, MSM, and Boswellia – is not shown on the label
- Missing some core ingredients such as bromelain, glucosamine, and ginger
- Negative claims about Glucosamine & Chondroitin are inaccurate and misleading
- Steep price for what it offers ($49.95/month’s supply)
RediMove is an interesting joint health supplement. It draws upon questionable studies to show that traditional joint supplements that contain glucosamien and chondroitin are not only ineffective but also potentially causing increased joint pain.
Instead of using glucosamine+chondroitin, then, RediMove has chosen to go with MSM, turmeric, and Boswellia Serrata, which are indeed excellent and highly effective supplements for joint pain.
The only issue is, RediMove doesn’t show you how much of each ingredient there is in the supplement. It’s all packed in a tiny proprietary blend of 300mg. More likely than not, this is done to hide the fact that key ingredients like Turmeric are underdosed in RediMove – making the supplement weak and possibly ineffective at reducing your joint pain, alleviating inflammation, and providing a relief from chronic joint stiffness.
For the price of $49.95 per bottle, we expected a lot more. If you’re serious about getting rid of your joint issues, we recommend checking for better alternatives on the market.
RediMove is a natural dietary supplement for joint support. It is clinically shown in a RediMove-promoted study to relief joint discomfort, reduce stiffness, and improve your joint mobility – in just 2 weeks.
The question is, does RediMove really work as marketed, and do the peer-reviewed clinical trials of its ingredients agree with the study that they quote on their website?
Our team dissects the supplement to see if it is the right choice for you.
Here are the ingredients in RediMove:
- Turmeric Root Extract (95% curcuminoids) (dose unknown)
- Boswellia Serrata (65% boswllic acids) (dose unknown)
- MSM (dose unknown)
- UC-II Standardized Cartilage (40mg)
- BioPerine Black Pepper Extract (5mg)
As shown on the ingredient label:
The interesting thing about RediMove is that most of its ingredients are in a ‘proprietary blend’. If you researched supplements in the past, then you’ve likely come across one of these before. A proprietary blend simply means that the ingredients are mixed together and shown as a single dosage on the label – in the case of RediMove, that is 300mg. However, the dose of each ingredient in the blend is not shown.
This is a problem for many reasons. The biggest one is that you can’t know how effective or safe the ingredients are if you can’t see their dosage.
Okay, so that doesn’t look too good – but what about the ingredients themselves? For the most part, they look good.
MSM, turmeric, and Boswellia Serrata are some of the most effective joint health compounds you’ll find on the natural market. Let’s see what the science says about them.
Turmeric Root Extract (95% curcuminoids) (dose unknown)
Turmeric is a spice that is used in Indian cooking. It is also used as a remedy by Ayurvedic doctors and traditional healers for treating different types of diseases.
For example, turmeric has been found to be effective for arthritis and joint pain. There are many studies that show turmeric’s effectiveness for joint health. People who have rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis see great relief from their pain and inflammation when they take turmeric capsules or consume it in traditional Indian dishes like curry.
It also helps with the symptoms of other inflammatory conditions like Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and psoriasis. Turmeric may even prevent Alzheimer’s disease by removing amyloid plaques from the brain.
It’s good that RediMove uses a 95-percent curcuminoid extract – this means that it consists of mostly curcumin, which is the key active compound in turmeric responsible for most of its benefits. The only issue is, as we’ve mentioned, that you can’t see the exact turmeric dosage in RediMove. It could be 1mg for all we know. The whole proprietary blend of RediMove is 300mg, and the optimal dosage for turmeric alone is 250-300mg. Therefore, it is more than likely underdosed and ineffective in RediMove.
Boswellia Serrata (65% boswellic acids) (dose unknown)
This is another great choice.
Boswellia serrata is a type of plant that grows in India, Ethiopia, and Somalia. It has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for joint pain and inflammation.
Boswellia serrata is also known to have anti-inflammatory properties. There are some studies that suggest that it can reduce inflammation by suppressing the immune system’s response to an injury or disease.
There are few studies done on humans directly but the ones that have been done seem to be promising. In one study, Boswellia serrata extracts were given to people who had osteoarthritis of the knee or hip joint and it was found to reduce their pain significantly in just two weeks of taking it.
MSM (dose unknown)
There are a number of people who swear by MSM as a natural healing agent. And so far, the evidence agrees.
In a study done by Schoenfeld (2018) on the effects of MSM supplements on inflammation, stiffness, and pain for patients with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, it was found that MSM supplements had significant effects on soreness and inflammation of joints.
These results were measured after two weeks following the administration of the supplement. This suggests that MSM supplements can be effective in maintaining joint health.
The optimal dosage for MSM to be effective is around 100mg per day. Again, we can’t see the dosage of MSM in RediMove.
UC-II Standardized Cartilage (40mg)
This is a form of collagen which is used to build and maintain tissues in your body – joints included. Many people believe that supplementing collagen or cartilage can improve their joint health – especially long-term. However, there is absolutely no evidence that this is the case. In reality, UC-II Collagen and Cartilage supplements have poor oral bioavailability, which means you don’t absorb them well. As a result, any cartilage or collagen supplement you take is likely to go down the drain. Even if it worked, the dosage of 40mg that is found in RediMove is comically small.
BioPerine Black Pepper Extract (5mg)
This is a good addition as it helps with the absorption of other ingredients. It may also make them more effective; especially turmeric. A study found that piperine – a compound from black pepper extract – can enhance the absorption of turmeric’s active components by 2,000%!
Our Thoughts on the Ingredients in RediMove
RediMove would be a good formula if the ingredients it contains are well-dosed – which doesn’t appear to be the case. The optimal dosage for turmeric alone, as we mentioned, is around 300mg. RediMove’s entire proprietary blend – which consists of turmeric, MSM, and Boswellia – weighs 300mg.
It’s also a shame that RediMove didn’t include more ingredients, such as bromelain, selenium, and ginger to name a few. These would make the formula more effective at doing what it claims.
Glucosamine and chondroitin are another two well-researched ingredients and proven joint health enhancers that would’ve made RediMove far more effective at promoting long-term joint function, despite what the manufacturer would like you to believe. They draw on a study from 2016 which showed that glucosamine+chondroitin isn’t effective – it’s just a placebo. But this study stands alone as a big chunk of the peer-reviewed evidence tells us otherwise.
All in all, RediMove may be somewhat effective at relieving your joint pain. Just don’t expect substantial results. It’s missing a lot of “firepower” compared to other joint supplements on the market.
Dosage Instructions (How to Take)
RediMove dosage is 1 capsule per day, with or without food. Make sure not to exceed the recommended dosage, unless told otherwise by a qualified health professional.
What do Others Say?
RediMove reviews can be found on many websites, including on Amazon. It has a fairly underwhelming score of 3.9/5 stars, which confirms our thoughts.
Here’s what some of the customers had to say about the product;
“My story: tore my ACL in 2000 and had reconstructive knee surgery. Flash forward twenty years-it’s wearing out and I’ve got bone-on-bone joint pain. To date, I’ve taken two bottles of RediMove and noticed a slight improvement in the flexibility of the joint. However, it’s not able to take away the sharp pain caused by my paper-thin meniscus. For those folks that report a diminished feeling of sharp pains good for them. I wish I knew the secret to make that happen. Two separate orthopedic docs agree I need a new knee, but are reluctant to give me one at a relatively young age (52) and the fact that my knee is highly functional. To my credit, I lost 13 pounds through diet and intense exercise to get unwanted weight off my knee. RediMove helped some, but it’s not a panacea. My experience with RediMove is positive, but not over-the-top improvement like I’ve seen in some reviews. I knew going into the purchase it was a long shot, so I gave it a whirl!” – Anthony Germano
“It’s easy to take, and so far my pain has been reduced somewhat, but not eliminated, so I am going to try another bottle and give it more time to see if it really will help to heal my knee joint.” – Donald Beach
“Bought this to help back pain, very little difference.” – Bromely X
What are the Negative Effects of RediMove?
The ingredients in RediMove are all extensively researched and aren’t found to cause any major side effects for most people. Their dosages in RediMove are on the light side, too – for better or worse in this case.
That said, if you have a health condition or if you take any meds, don’t take RediMove until you speak with your doctor. Turmeric, for example, is a blood thinner and can interact with blood-thinning medications. It’s smart to play caution.
Cost & Value
RediMove costs a whopping $49.95 for a month’s supply. The price can vary depending on where you buy it. RediMove is available on Amazon, however, at the moment it is not available at Holland & Barret.
Nonetheless, it falls into a similar price bracket as the market-leading joint supplements. However, when compared to these supplements, RediMove doesn’t have as comprehensive of a formula, nor does it have the optimal dosages as other supplements do. As a result, we don’t think it is the best value you can find today.
RediMove Review: The Bottom Line
RediMove is an interesting supplement; it costs a bunch but it doesn’t provide a lot. With only 5 ingredients in the formula, and most of them not having their dosages shown, it scores a little less than what we expected.
It may help lower your joint pain and improve flexibility to an extent, but we wouldn’t put our hopes too high. With a little research, you can easily find better supplements at this price range.
