It's time for my Heal-n-Soothe review – which is a pretty famous arthritis supplement.
That's probably because of its massive advertising.
So is Heal-n-Soothe any good?
At $60 per bottle – it has high chances to be a scam (in terms of quality/price).
For this reason – I tried to find out the truth behind.
Note: This review is based on my own opinion + research on Heal-n-Soothe.
Full Name: Heal-n-Soothe by Living Well Nutraceuticals
Product Type: Joint Pain Supplement
Best Actual Price: Around $60 (if you go for auto-shipping – in this case, the first bottle is free).
In case you only want to buy one bottle (no auto-shipping), it costs about $70.
Cheapest Place To Buy: Probably Amazon (often discounts)
Designed For: Decreasing joint inflammation.
I mostly recommend it for inflammatory joint problems:
- rheumatoid arthritis
- psoriatic arthritis
- other forms of autoimmune arthritis
It's not very effective for osteoarthritis and cartilage problems, though.
My Rating: 6 out of 10
Recommended?: Definitely not – it costs way too much for what it does:
- Some ingredients have very low dosages
- Many negative reviews and complaints
- Causes serious side effects (especially stomach cramps)
Instead of spending $70 for this product – I recommend a $24 supplement that makes a much better choice.
What I Liked About It
- Ingredient list is very varied
- Contains a pretty original compound (enzyme blend)
- Trustworthy company behind
- Pills are quite easy to swallow
- Available to buy from several sellers
- Many authentic opinions online
What I Didn't Like About It
- Many compounds have low dosages
- You need to take 3 pills per day
- Enough negative reviews and complaints (especially about side effects)
- Extremely expensive overall
- Free bottle isn't actually free (only if you sign up for auto-shipping)
- Many complaints about staff behavior
- Company doesn't always agree to refund customers (despite claiming to do so)
#1 – What It Is & Claims
I want to begin my analysis by giving you some general facts about this product.
Its promises, what's the company behind, etc.
According to its website – Heal-n-Soothe is “Mother Nature's Feel Good Formula”.
In other words, it's a remedy based on natural ingredients:
Now – Heal-n-Soothe claims that its formula can control inflammation:
- Decreases the levels of inflammatory molecules.
- Supports a healthy inflammatory response.
- This has a positive impact on joint health and flexibility.
Basically – this supplement doesn't treat the unhealthy joints.
Instead, it decreases inflammation so that the pain/mobility gets better.
For this reason, Heal-n-Soothe is the kind of supplement that would mostly help inflammatory joint pain:
- this usually appears in autoimmune forms of arthritis
- it's not as common as joint pain caused by cartilage damage
So it doesn't seem to help osteoarthritis (which is the #1 form of arthritis).
2. Company Behind
Living Well Nutraceuticals is the company behind Heal-n-Soothe.
To be honest – I heard of this supplement brand before:
- they have several supplements for different health issues
- this includes pain, sleep relief, weight loss, etc.
However – most of their products are very expensive.
But that's another story.
In terms of trust – Living Well Nutraceuticals is a legit company.
#2 – Formula (8 out of 10)
To be honest – I'm not a big fan of Heal-n-Soothe's ingredient list.
It certainly has an original formula (very few supplements are based on enzymes).
Besides – its ingredients are quite diverse.
But these are the only advantages I could find:
- Most ingredients don't have very high dosages.
- Their actual value is much lower (than Heal-n-Soothe's price).
Now – in order to analyze the ingredients properly, I divided them in 2 groups:
So let's take a closer look at each.
As I said – this is Heal-n-Sooth's top ingredient.
It's actually called “Systemic Enzyme Blend” because it's a mix of several enzymes:
- Protease AM – can fight against joint destruction. 
- Bromelain – it's derived from pineapple and has a strong anti-inflammatory power. 
- Protease 6.0 – it's an enzyme with multiple proprieties.
- Alkaline Protease – has a good anti-inflammatory effect. 
- Papain – it's an enzyme fro Papaya fruit that can decrease inflammation levels. 
Now – this enzyme blend looks quite promising.
But I can't guarantee it has such a powerful effect (since it's not a common ingredient in joint products).
Still – on paper, this enzyme mix looks good enough.
This groups makes most of Heal-n-Soothe's ingredients.
To be honest, most of these herbs are known for their anti-inflammatory effect.
However – most are used in much higher dosages in other joint supplements.
That's why I'm a bit reluctant about their effect in Heal-n-Soothe:
- Boswellia Extract – it's a strong analgesic and anti-inflammatory. 
- Citrus Biflavonoids – has an anti-inflammatory activity. 
- Ginger Root Extract – it's mostly an antioxidant. 
- Yucca Root – one of the few herbs with an anti-arthritis effect. 
- Turmeric – probably the strongest anti-inflammatory herb (but in higher dosages).
- Alpha-Lipoic Acid – lowers certain inflammation markers.
- Rutin – decreases chronic inflammation. 
- Devil's Claw Extract – it's one of the best herbs for inflammation.
So even though these ingredients look great – their dosages aren't very impressive.
That's why I don't have a lot of trust in this formula.
Heal-n-Soothe has a very versatile formula:
- based on an enzymatic blend
- also contains several anti-inflammatory herbs
In terms of ingredients, it looks like a quality supplement.
The only problem is that their dosages are quite low, if you ask me.
That's why it's not a supplement I would recommend (not even for inflammatory arthritis).
Its formula is definitely not worth $60-$70.
#3 – How To Use It (8 out of 10)
I will try to tell you some things about Heal-n-Soothe's capsules and directions here.
1. The Pills
Fortunately – this supplement uses gelatin capsules (which are really easy to take):
- whitish color
- powder is visible inside the pills
- average dimensions
The point is that these pills are quite easy to swallow by everyone.
They're the typical supplement pills, so nothing wrong at this chapter.
2. The Schedule
That's probably the less pleasant part when it comes to Heal-n-Soothe:
- you need to take 3 pills per day
- it's recommended to space them out throughout the day
- you should take them with plenty of water
Additionally, I have a personal recommendation.
It's better to take the pills after eating (no matter what the label recommends).
In this way – you avoid any stomach cramps, which are a common side effects of joint supplements.
This tip is available for most supplements, not just for Heal-n-Soothe.
#4 – Results (6 out of 10)
This supplement has enough customer opinions available.
I will try to analyze them in general – so that you can understand whether this products works or not.
Note: I only considered authentic reviews from Amazon, in order to avoid fake/promotional reviews.
1. Positive Opinions
On Amazon – Heal-n-Soothe has an average of 4 stars (from 196 reviews).
That's quite a positive opinion in general.
However – most of the 5 stars reviews are either outdated or very brief.
Still, here's what people praise this product for:
- Some say it really helps with their arthritis symptoms.
- Others claim it improves their stiffness.
- A few others say it takes about 3-4 months but it works in the end.
- Some praise it for improving their mobility.
2. Negative Opinions
Surprisingly or not, this product has lots of detailed negative reviews.
For instance – on its Amazon page:
- all the reviews from page 1 are negative (1 star)
- they all give a lot of details
Basically – most of these people complain about:
- No effect even after 3 months.
- Side effects like diarrhea, stomach pain, high blood pressure (many complaints).
- Interactions with other drugs.
- Bad customer service.
- Company refused to refund them (despite stating to do it on its official website).
- Extremely expensive.
Unfortunately, most of these claims are true.
Since there are more than 3 different reviews on each complaint – they must be real.
Heal-n-Soothe has mixed opinions overall.
However – its most recent (and detailed) reviews are all negative:
- many complaints on side effects
- lots of users didn't experience any relief
- customer service seems to be quite rude and unhelpful
Considering how expensive Heal-n-Soothe is, I would definitely not recommend it in this case.
That especially when there are many cheaper alternatives that work much better (according to reviews).
#5 – Side Effects (4 out of 10)
Heal-n-Soothe has a lot of complaints regarding side effects.
Compared to other joint supplements – it seems to cause side effects a lot more often.
- Bad stomach pain and cramps (probably the most common complaint)
- High blood pressure
Now – I found more than 10 complaints about stomach pain.
Since it only has 196 reviews, 10 people with stomach pain is already a really high number.
For this reason – I wouldn't recommend Heal-n-Soothe.
It's true that some people claim they never experienced any side effects.
However, the per cent of those who did experience them was quite high.
So if you have a history of stomach problems, I advise you to stay away from it.
#6 – Price (2 out of 10)
Heal-n-Soothe is one of the priciest joint supplements I know.
And if you ask me, its actual value is a lot lower (in terms of ingredients).
1. The Exact Price
This supplement has a pretty unusual price rule.
According to its official website:
- Standard price is $69.95.
- This doesn't include the shipping ($9.95).
- However, first time customers can request a free bottle.
- In this case, they only have to pay the shipping fees.
- Still, getting a free bottle means signing up for their auto-shipping.
- This means you will get a new bottle after 30 days from your order.
- But this time, the bottle costs $59.95.
Basically – you can only get a free bottle if you agree for auto-shipping in the next months.
This is a pretty tricky strategy that many companies use.
According to Heal-n-Soothe, you can cancel the auto-shipping anytime.
But many reviews complain that's not true:
Therefore – many people who signed for auto-shipping ended up being forced to pay the product for several months.
It's not me saying this, it's the previous customers.
For this reason – I recommend buying a single bottle from the first time.
Still, I strongly believe this product is extremely overpriced.
That's why I could never recommend it as one of my top choices.
2. Competitors' Price
I only want to compare Heal-n-Soothe with my #1 recommended supplement (for inflammatory joint pain).
I'm talking about a product called Turmeric Plus:
- HS's formula is based on enzymes.
- TP is based on turmeric and absorption enhancers.
- HS costs between $60 and $70 per bottle.
- TP costs $24 per bottle normally.
- However, TP comes with big discounts for larger orders.
- In this way, you can get it for $16 per bottle (best price I know).
Basically – I personally consider Turmeric Plus as the best alternative to Heal-n-Soothe.
Actually, I consider it the best supplement against inflammatory pain:
- really cheap
- based on the strongest herb for inflammation
- very few complaints on side effects
On the other hand – Heal-n-Soothe costs more than double and causes side effects quite often.
If you ask me, Heal-n-Soothe is a very overpriced supplement:
- its ingredients aren't worth so much
- many side effects often times
- doesn't seem to be working so good
Besides – its price offer seems to be quite tricky.
You can't get a free bottle unless you sign up for auto-shipping (which is quite dangerous).
For this reason – it's a supplement I could never recommend.
If you really want to test out a product for joint inflammation – better choose a cheaper one that works.
#7 – Availability (9 out of 10)
Unlike other supplements of this kind, Heal-n-Soothe is quite easy to find:
- sold directly on its official website
- also available on retailers like Amazon
- you can find it even on Ebay (but I don't recommend that)
So for a supplement of its value – it's quite accessible.
Now – I pretty much recommend choosing Amazon:
- They have discounts and sales quite often.
- Price is standard on Heal-n-Soothe's official website.
- Amazon also offers a money back guarantee (as far as I know).
- But unlike Heal-n-Soothe's website, they always accept refunds.
As I said, I don't recommend Heal-n-Soothe as a joint supplement.
But if you really want to buy it, I recommend going for Amazon.
#8 – FAQs
In this chapter, we will discuss some common questions about Heal-n-Soothe.
Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it's easier to spot here.
1. What is this product for?
Heal-n-Soothe is a joint pain supplement.
It claims to control a healthy inflammatory responses.
So it will result in a positive effect on joint health and flexibility.
But it doesn't really treat unhealthy joints.
2. How do you use this supplement?
The instructions of Heal-n-Soothe recommend 3 pills per day.
It suggests that you to space the capsules out throughout the day.
Lastly, you might want to drink plenty of water with it.
3. How long does one bottle last?
Based on the Heal-n-Soothe's product label, it has 90 vegetarian capsules.
So ideally, it should be good to use for one month.
That especially if you follow the suggested serving size.
4. Are there any serious side effects?
There's quite some bad feedback about Heal-n-Soothe.
Most of the side effect complaints are listed below:
- intense stomach cramps and pain
- elevated blood pressure
But the major complaints are only about stomach pain – so take note of that.
5. What's the pricing of this product?
Heal-n-Soothe has some tricky pricing rules.
The first bottle is free and you only need to pay the shipping fee.
But getting the free bottle will automatically sign you up for auto-shipping.
So it means that every 30 days, you will be sent a new bottle.
The price of one bottle is $59.95, in this case.
#9 – Heal-n-Soothe In 3 Conclusions
Here's how I would sum up my opinion on this supplement.
1. Uncommon Formula
First of all – this product's formula is far from bad:
- diverse ingredients
- based on an unusual enzyme blend
- also contains anti-inflammatory herbs
So in my opinion, its uncommon ingredient list is a great thing (it makes it unique).
But as I said – I'm not a fan of its ingredients' dosages.
In my opinion, some are way too low. That's why I don't have full trust in this product.
2. Tricky Free Bottle Offer
Heal-n-Soothe's free bottle isn't as free as it seems:
- you need to sign up for their auto-shipping first
- apparently, you can't cancel it as easily
- you still have to pay the shipping fees for the free bottle
- that's around $7
Now – it's not the shipping fees that matter so much.
It's the necessity to join their auto-shipping first.
And judging after the high number of complaints on this topic, it's really hard to cancel it whenever you want.
3. Among Priciest Joint Products
In terms of price – Heal-n-Soothe is really bad:
- costs around $60-$70
- shipping fees aren't free either
- its actual value is a lot lower (if you ask me)
Basically – that's a major reason why I don't recommend this product.
It's definitely not weak, but it costs way too much.
When you have so many under $30 alternatives, why spend so much money on this product?
My Verdict – Worth Or Not?
Short answer: Certainly not.
It's not a bad supplement in terms of ingredients – but that's pretty much all the positive side:
- Extremely expensive for its real value.
- Many ingredients have low dosages.
- A lot of complaints about poor effect/side reactions.
- Free bottle is conditioned by signing up for auto-shipping.
- Only works for inflammatory joint pain (not for cartilage damage).
As I said, Heal-n-Soothe isn't a bad product.
So if you were wondering whether it's a scam or not – it's not.
However, it's not a product I could possibly recommend.
Instead – I have a much better alternative for inflammatory pain.
I'm talking about a product called Turmeric Plus:
- Best price among supplements of this kind (up to $16/bottle)
- Really strong formula
- Based on the best herb for inflammation
- Doesn't cause side effects too often
So compared to Heal-n-Soothe, I think this supplement is a much better choice.
That's why it's my top alternative at this point.
