Mechanism of action of Move Free

Move Free is proprietary product name for an array of multi-ingredient herbal and nutritional supplements (MINS) meant to ease joint discomfort.  The Move Free brand is currently produced by Reckitt Benckiser Group pic (Slough, England) which purchased its previous distributor, Schiff Nutrition International (Salt Lake City, UT), in 2012.  The constituents of the various Move Free products vary, but are largely glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid with various combinations of vitamins (vitamin D3), minerals (boron) and selected nutritional supplements such as krill oil and astaxanthin (a keto-carotenoid anti-oxidant).  The ingredients and their concentrations in some of the products have been modified over time.  Previous Move Free products have included mixtures of herbal agents including Chinese skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) and black catechu (Acacia catechu).  Presently, however, Move Free products do not list any herbal constituents although several mention “Uniflex (FruiteX-B Calcium Fructoborate)”.

The common Move Free products that are currently marketed are given in the Table below with a listing of their ingredients as provided in the product labels.  Because the products are considered nutritional supplements they are not subject to the usual efficacy and safety evaluation given to medications.  However, all nutritional supplements are subject to rules regarding purity and good manufacturing practices.  Nutritional supplements are not recommended for specific medical conditions, but can be advertised as being supportive of general health or a specific tissue or organ health.  These multi-ingredient products appear to be generally safe and well tolerated, but prospective studies of their efficacy, tolerance and safety have not been published.
