THEAMERICANWRITER - Feb. 17, 2012 | 16:05 CST

NEENAH, Wisconsin - Using a turmeric arthritis remedy for stiffness in joints has proven to work -- that's by personal experience. But does Supple work? This was originally written in July 17th of last year. And I've updated this hub a little bit at the bottom to tell you what worked for me and what I did to heal from the stiffness in my two index fingers. You can scroll down to the bottom of the page or continue reading the original hub up until you see the words 'Update Feb 2012'.

One arthritis pain reliever Peter claims to work is this Supple beverage. It is on TV right now and it's about four in the morning. They are talking about this drink that has allegedly done wonders for this guy. The show, Smart Medicine, is hosted by a Dr. Monita something. My apologies, I didn't get her whole name, too busy typing and trying to listen to what they are saying at the same time. But the product apparently originates from a Wisconsin city named Neenah.

Said to Heal Join Pain

The guy's name is Peter Apatow, according to the thing at the bottom of the screen, and he says Supple not only helped to relieve arthritis pain for himself but can aid in the relief of other joint aches and pains. He claims to not be a doctor or anything. Instead he's just someone who once suffered from joint pains for many years in his hip and found a solution that worked for him to cure it. He realized that from this concoction he made (Supple) that it helped heal his pains. Why did this get my attention? Well I have aches in my hands, particularly in my two index fingers. And so I'm watching this because I've tried different things and am wondering if this 'Supple Beverage' of Peter's will do me any real good by healing my index finger pains and stiffness.

Active Ingredients Subscribed by Doctors

He says supple contains the active ingredients of medicines that doctors subscribe every day. So my guess is, the only major difference is with Supple you're going to have to pay doctor prices to get those active ingredients. Basically, this drink is a drugged drink if it contains the same active ingredients that doctors are prescribing. Not sure I like the idea of buying a drink that's been drugged. *looking around* I was trying to listen for what he said the ingredients are exactly, but I think I may have missed it during my typing these thoughts. Nevertheless, I'd like to know if this works for anyone else. Peter says it's got 30 calories and 4 grams of sugar or something like that and no artificial things. I don't think I really care about that part, but you might so added that in there for you if you care. Peter also said a bottle a day, a person will feel beter in 7 days. He makes it sound like "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" or one of those one-a-day pills/vitamins. But instead of an apple or a pill, this is a beverage. Was it worth trying to rid finger arthritis?

Pains and Sore Joints Supple Allegedly Heals

Peter went in to say what other things Supple would heal. And those things would including the following:

  • Arthritis and other types of arthritis pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Gout
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Joint pains
  • Hip pains

Ok, ok, ok, so he's said a lot of things while mentioning claims of this Supple drink, but personally, some people will say anything to sell a product. So, I have to be skeptical. I'm just not the gullible type as if people always tell the truth because people do lie. So I'm curious if anyone I know has tried this and the results. I usually try things myself and don't go on what other people say because what works for you may not work for me. There is no one size fits all to anything in life including this Supple.

Unknown Supple Active Ingredients

Well, he just stated he's offering a money back guarantee if it doesn't work. That's a plus, but I'm still hesitant because I don't know what the ingredients are. Nevertheless, you sure won't get a money back guarantee if you go to a doctor. Now why don't doctors offer such? They get paid even when they are wrong. Shame.

Anyway, I really need to know the ingredients, so I'll be looking that up because I'm into natural remedies and so if the active ingredients are some type of drugs, then I'll have to pass on this. I do wonder whether or not the pain will return if a person stops drinking this Supple drink. If I saw this in stores, then I'd more than likely go ahead and try it; if I were ok with the ingredients. Maybe I can just make my own remedy for arthritis in the finger. You know, if the active ingredients are something acceptable that I can get on my own and to my own taste. That's an idea worth researching. At least then I'll know what exact ingredients I'd by using for relieve the stiffness in my two index fingers.

Will I Try Supple to Solve My Issue

I'm unsure if the joint problem I experience is in fact arthritis. What I do know is my two index fingers get stiff and I feel a level of pain usually when I awake and as the day goes on, the pain and stiffness reduces. But regardless, Supple claims to heal joint pain and sore joints -- period. Nevertheless, I will wait until I see this drink in stores. And if it never gets into stores, then I won't ever try it. It's really just that simple.

From now on, I will continue to seek out natural home remedies in healing the pain I experience in my two index fingers that slightly spreads at mid-point between that and my thumb (my other fingers are ok, though). Maybe one day I'll try this to heal finger arthritis and post a hub about my results with it, but don't hold your breath, though. Chances are next to none of me trying this beverage.

Update Feb 2012: I still have not tried Supple to relieve the stiffness in my index fingers. I just was just totally turned off about Supple after writing my hub about it. So I continued to seek out natural home remedies. And after a family member told me about turmeric and how it helped her daughter's finger heal, I decided to read a little more on it.

As a result, I went to the store and bought a bottle of turmeric capsules for about eight dollars. It was on sale at the time. Most of the turmeric capsules found in the store averaged anywhere from $15 to $40 a bottle of x amount of capsules. The one I got was store brand that consisted of 90 capsules per bottle. I bought one bottle. I figured that to be enough. I took about 2 to 3 capsules every day for about a week and a half to two weeks and I noticed the stiffness in my fingers was gradually reducing as well as the morning pain. I am now able to bend my fingers without any issues and when I wake up, it's not because my index fingers are causing me pain. I wake up to no pain and that makes me very happy.

As I stated before, I have not tried that Supple drink especially since I no longer need to. So if Supple has worked for you, then great. But as for my issue, I only tried Turmeric and that proved to work wonderfully in a surprisingly short period of time. So now I am a firm supporter of turmeric and its healing abilities for the simple fact it healed me.

      Come on dude. Surely you don't believe the crap you hear on late night infomercials? These late night scam artist all fall in the same category, rip offs! Including John Abdo who sells male sex pills ( where the little head talks to the big head, lol), or Peter Popoff the proven scam artist preacher who, for a donation will send you "miracle water" that will make you rich. Or you will get a checkbin the mail for thousands.yea right! Or, who was the king of late night scams? That got sent to prison for lying and scaming for years, and he made millions doing this. Get a goid laugh out if late night commercials, but don't buy anything.! If it sounds too good to be true, it is. Most all late might commercials are scams. Maybe not 100%, but close.

      It surely is a great idea to include turmeric in your diet. It has so many good effects in the body, including anti-bacterial, anti-cancerous properties.

      Thanks for sharing! :)

      Thank you for sharing the information on supple. I saw the infomercial this morning and sat down to watch it. I searched for more information about this drink and read a review on Consumer Health Digest, then came over your post. Well, thank you for sharing your research and providing a true review about supple. I’ll need to search for another joint pain relief supplement.

      What you described in your index fingers sounds like classic Rheumatoid Arthritis.

      Al, did you read the article, dude?! The article's comments were based on the informercial. How'd you miss that, dude?! And I don't think Supple would feel as you do. The article is basically giving you a rundown of what is on Supple informercial. I found it to be accurate as I've seen the informercial, too. Next time read the article, dude.

      y didn't u just gv the product a try instead of talking so much about if this and if that re: supple. I don't thk what yr stating is fair to supple bc u nv tred it but had so much to say about it. I would respect what yr saying if u would have at least gave it a try. I hv huge medical problems and know there are scams everywhere, however you make me thk twice about the product yr speaking of simply bc u were negative speaking about supple and yr comments were based on nothing.
