Over the last couple of weeks I have been looking at the natural remedies available for those wanting help with joint pain and stiffness. I am continuing with that theme this week, with a look at a product which was launched only a year ago, but which we have had some fantastic feedback on. That product is simply called – 7
7 is a combination of seven different natural ingredients, all of which have been reported to np e helpful in joint health. They include turmeric and ginger, which are often used as natural anti inflammatories, other natural anti inflammatory and pain relieving nutrients, plus vitamin C and collagen. Vitamin C and Collagen have been used to try and help support joint maintenance and repair damage to cartilage. This means that this product could help both in relieving pain and inflammation as well as helping with joint repair and maintenance.
7 also claims that some people say that they have noticed benefits from using it in as little as seven days!
To be honest, when it was launched, with all these claims, I was highly sceptical – it sounded too good to be true. But over the last year, I have been convinced that for those who are looking for something different to help with their joint pain and stiffness, 7 could well be worth a try. This is because some of the reports we have had back from customers who have used it have been amazing.
One lady in particular sticks out in my mind. She was so done we had been seeing for a number of months, she had used things like glucosamine and the celadrin I wrote about last week and although she had seen some benefits, she was still struggling with a problem in her shoulder. The damage and inflammation in her shoulder meant that it was extremely painful for her to love her arm – she had very little movement and had not been able to wash her own hair for months as she could not lift her arm up that far. She decided that she wanted to try the 7 when it was launched, to see if it would give her any of the benefits they were advertising. When she came back in three weeks after taking the 7, it was to buy a second pot and give us a delighted demonstration of how much better her pain was. She showed us that she was now able to lift her arm and told us that she had actually washed her own hair the previous evening! These kind of reports – including a lady who came in and danced around the shop because her back pain was so much better – are what has given me quite a bit of faith in 7. Therefore I would say that anyone who is struggling with joint pain and stiffness, if you have not had any help from the other more well known products available – it could well be worth giving 7 a go!
When the weather is cold as it has been recently, joints can start to seize up and ache. Knees and hips can become painful and many people come in to see us to see if there is anything they can try to help improve their joint health and reduce their stiffness.
Last year we were introduced to a new product, based on some of our favourite joint remedies, made by a company called Lamberts the product is Glucosamine Complete. Now before you switch off, thinking that I am just writing about glucosamine again – please bear with me! This is actually quite a different kettle of fish to most of the other things on the market! How different can it be, I hear you ask, it’s just Glucosamine! Well no! Let me explain.
Many products out there combine glucosamine with other ingredients for joint health, but when you look at them they contain very little of the important ingredients. Others which contain decent amounts are horribly expensive. Glucosamine Complete manages to provide decent levels of the important ingredients at a pretty reasonable price.
For example, if you take the suggested dose you will get 1500mg of glucosamine plus 300mg chondroitin (many combination products only have 100mg or less of this) plus MSM, another important component in joint health. On top of this the Glucosamine Complete also provides good doses of Quercertin, Ginger and Rosehip. It is the addition of these ingredients in meaningful amounts which really makes the difference to this product in my opinion. Quercertin is a brilliant, natural anti inflammatory, we have used it for years, in fact years and years ago, quercertin was responsible for a dog getting his mobility back and continuing an active life for several years more than expected. Ginger is also a well known natural anti inflammatory, but ginger is also said to help boost the circulation, which improves the flow of nutrients to the affected joint. Finally Rosehip has been used quite successfully for the last few years on its own to help reduce pain and stiffness, so mixing it with other natural joint ingredients seems a great idea.
We have had some fantastic reports on this product. Several people have told us that they have seen improvements in the mobility and reductions in their joint pain within the first bottle! One lady came in for the first time asking what she could take for her painful knees. We suggested that she try the Glucosamine Complete, which she did. When she came back at the end of her first bottle she told us that she had noticed improvements in her pain and stiffness within weeks of starting to take it! I have also been using this product myself recently. I injured my foot a few months ago and it became very stiff and painful. No one seemed to be able to tell me what was wrong with it so I decided to try and do something about it myself and thought I would try the Glucosamine Complete for myself. I have to say that I was very happy with the results. As a woman who likes to wear a heel, I was most upset when my painful foot meant that the only shoes I was comfortable in we’re my scruffy flat boots! The good news was that after a month on the Glucosamine Complete I was back in my normal shoes in comfort again. I have now got my mum trying it for her bad back – I hope she gets as good a result as I have! So if you are looking for a natural product
