False Advertising: Schiff Glucosamine Class Action

Promoted as a “joint health” supplement or “joint strengthener,” Move Free by Schiff isn’t what it claims to be and glucosamine and chondroitin effectiveness comes into question. If you, or someone you know, have purchased any of the following products or similar joint health supplements from another manufacturer, please contact Kohn, Swift & Graf attorneys. We are actively pursuing a glucosamine and chondroitin lawsuit and seeking plaintiffs.

Is It False Advertising?

Clinical trials show that the products—namely glucosamine and chondroitin—don’t have any beneficial effects on joint health. Three back-to-back GAIT studies, published in 2006, 2008 and 2010 in the New England Journal of Medicine found neither glucosamine or chondroitin alone, or as a pair, had any effect whatsoever. Furthermore, 2008 and 2010 findings had no effect on joint space width or the rebuilding of cartilage, or provided pain, function or mobility benefits respectively.

Age or increased activity can all irritate one’s joints. Which may be why Schiff Move Free is claiming joint health benefits. But the glucosamine and chondroitin evidence is clear. It doesn’t deliver on its promises. We encourage you to join others now and demand that the company stops these false claims.
