Is MEND covered by insurance?

How is MEND taken?

Is MEND safe to be taken before surgery?

MEND Joint Replacement contains only well-studied, well-tolerated nutrients that are safe and may be taken before and after surgery. It is always advisable to check with your doctor before taking any dietary supplements. If your surgeon is unaware of MEND Joint Replacement, please contact us ( for a brochure that you can print and take to his/her office. Your surgeon will be interested in the clinical studies, which can be found in the Clinical Research section of this site and which we are happy to email to you for easy sharing with your surgeon.†

When should I take MEND?

Clinical studies show that you should ideally start taking MEND at least 1 week prior to surgery and continue for 6 weeks post surgery. Benefits have been seen in as little as 2 weeks post surgery. For maximum long-term results, we recommend taking MEND Joint Replacement during this acute phase and switching to MEND Regenerate for on-going nutritional support.

It is recommended to take 2 scoops per serving, 2 times per day.

It is not advised to take MEND Joint Replacement for longer than our recommended period as there have been no studies performed on long-term use. If you’re looking for a product to take daily after your recovery to preserve or add lean muscle mass and for general wellness, we would recommend our award winning product MEND Regenerate (learn more at†

What is the flavor, what does it taste like?

The flavor is Orange Mango. We chose this flavor to mask some of the bitter profile of amino acids, which are difficult to mask. We believe you’ll enjoy the taste even with water alone and certainly when mixed with juice or blended with a smoothie. For convenience many clients just add it to juice.

Where can I buy MEND?

MEND is available through doctors or surgeons or can be purchased directly from our website.

Can you ship to my country?

Yes, MEND is shipped worldwide. Please be aware of your country’s policy for importing dietary supplements and that additional taxes and tariffs may be applied by your country. In most cases it is delivered without a problem but sometimes customs can hold and ask you to pick up or call to arrange for delivery.

Are there any side effects?

The essential amino acids in MEND are safe and there are no contraindications or harmful side effects. Occasionally people with sensitive stomachs may experience some initial gas or slight irritability. This should subside as your stomach adjusts to the amino acids. If you do experience any irritation, you can simply dilute with additional juice or water, this usually resolves the issue.

Taste is overpowering - and not in a good way.

I'm sure that there are benefits to taking this supplement, but I just cannot get it down. No matter what I try mixing it with - orange juice, water, iced tea, it is so sickeningly sweet and strong in taste that I can't drink much of it. Sadly, I purchased two canisters before trying it. I haven't even opened the second canister; I don't know the return policy. I have spoken to others who also have not enjoyed the taste, but I am sure there are others who love it. It is purely a personal preference. I wish I coul drink it, as I do think there are benefits.

Definitely helped with better/faster recovery

I have had a few joint replacements and a fusion and my recovery with mend was definitely faster and easier than my other surgeries. My surgeon gave it to me and I had my surgery at Geisinger. I will keep taking mend as it has also helped by shoulder inflammation.

Excellent Product

The powder has a good taste unlike similar products that I have taken. The quantity was just right for my doctor's orders. The price was appropriate for the product. Note that the powder does not dissolve well in liquid.

Total Hip Replacement

10 days before my surgery I started taking MEND twice a days, as recommended.

It’s been 12 days after surgery. I am still taking MEND and definitely it is speeding my recovery.

Thank you, Scientists!

Next step it will be MEND REGENERATE 🙏🏻
