ArthroNew is a 3-way at-home treatment system that’s claimed to naturally relieve joint stiffness, burning inflammation, and pain when moving or stretching. ArthroNew is even claimed to help you feel years—or decades—younger, without any known side effects.
In order to accomplish this, ArthroNew is claimed to target your pain pathways using a “powerful concentration” of active ingredients, such as glucosamine, aloe vera, MSM, and other all-natural healing ingredients. All of these ingredients are introduced to your body through three different products:
- ArthroNew AM Gel (4oz) – Formulated with potent plant-based ingredients to relieve pain associated with daytime bodily stressors. According to the company, this gel can address existing pain while also preventing it in the future.
- ArthroNew PM Gel (2oz) – Similar to the AM Gel, but with added botanicals to calm and soothe and to provide rest and relaxation.
- ArthroNew Advanced Remix – A supplement drink mix that’s claimed to taste great while containing a “cocktail” of joint and muscle-easing ingredients that can relieve inflammation.
Taken together, can ArthroNew’s triple-product system really help relieve your joint pain, or will it just relieve your bank account of money? Let’s start with the basics.
Common Causes of Joint Pain
Just like any other type of pain, joint pain is your body’s way of telling you that something’s wrong. Unfortunately, our body isn’t very good at discerning exactly what’s causing the pain, which can make all the difference.
Think of it this way: Joint pain can be caused by a wide variety of conditions, including arthritis, other types of inflammation, degenerative diseases, the aging process, injury, and much more. Despite these disparate causes, your brain ultimately just interprets them as “Ouch!”
As you might imagine, a treatment that works for reducing inflammation might be great at relieving arthritis joint pain, but probably wouldn’t be very effective at addressing degenerative diseases.
Where does this leave us? If you’re experiencing chronic joint pain, the first thing you should do is speak with your physician, who can recommend an effective treatment based on your specific diagnosis.
Before you do though, can ArthroNew’s ingredients really help relieve your joint pain?
Will ArthroNew Help Reduce Your Joint Pain & Inflammation?
Considering how revolutionary the manufacturer makes ArthroNew seem, we’re ultimately told very little about what it contains, other than glucosamine, aloe vera, MSM, and “other all-natural healing ingredients.”
Glucosamine is listed as “likely effective” for treating osteoarthritis-related pain, although only about as well as Tylenol and NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, and not everyone who takes glucosamine will experience this pain relief.
Similarly, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) might also be effective for treating osteoarthritis, especially related to pain and movement. However, it’s noted that “the changes seem to be small, and it might not reduce other symptoms such as stiffness.”
On the other hand, there is insufficient clinical evidence showing that oral aloe supplementation can provide any of the benefits claimed by ArthroNew’s manufacturer, and the term “other all-natural healing ingredients” is too vague to be of any use.
One thing that’s not vague, however, is side effects related to ArthroNew’s ingredients.
Will ArthroNew Cause Any Side Effects?
Despite their somewhat limited efficacy, ArthroNew’s ingredients (at least the ones we’re told about) should be well tolerated by most users, with mild digestive upset as the most commonly cited side effect.
However, without a product label, it’s impossible to know if ArthroNew contains enough of each ingredient to be effective, or what types of side effects you can realistically expect to experience.
Since much of ArthroNew’s important information is vague, are there more specific methods of reducing joint pain?
How Else Can You Reduce Joint Pain?
As we mentioned at the beginning of the review, it’s not necessarily your joint pain that’s the problem, it’s what’s causing the pain. Because of this, the best thing to do is speak with a physician who can make specific treatment recommendations.
Keeping this in mind, common at-home treatments for joint pain including cold application, over the counter medications to reduce pain, taking glucosamine and/or chondroitin supplements (more about this in the final section), and making sure your weight is in check and that you get plenty of exercise. In more severe cases of joint pain, your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory or other types of medication.
What about ArthroNew’s company? Are they reputable?
ArthroNew & PureCore Wellness
ArthroNew is manufactured by PureCore Wellness, Inc. based out of Austin, TX, and the 3-part system appears to be the company’s only product.
Outside of their website though, there wasn’t any additional information online about the company, and they weren’t listed with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our research.

Is ArthroNew Worth the Money?
Ultimately, a couple of ArthroNew’s ingredients have some clinical evidence showing they may be effective for relieving joint pain, although most of this relates to osteoarthritis. As such, if you’re suffering from another condition, ArthroNew’s ingredients might not work at all.
Despite this, we don’t know how much of each ingredient is contained in ArthroNew, and if you can realistically expect to experience any relief.
Considering this, as well as ArthroNew’s relatively high price, your money might be better spent buying glucosamine, MSM, and/or chondroitin supplements independently, which can be purchased for less than $15 each from your local pharmacy.
Better yet, before purchasing any supplement—whether ArthroNew or something else—be sure to talk with your doctor.
