"He says it was signed for and accepted by a black female mid 20's about 5'5, slim and very polite."
...which made me smile as it was so accurate but for the age! A though I may look in my mid twenties, you might well be aware that I'm actually in my early thirties. Somehow, along the way though, no one ever really stressed how important it was to look after your insides as well as your outside.
I've been on a mission for around one year now focusing on what I put in my body especially in the form of supplements. One supplement I really rated were prebiotics (check out my post here) but I haven't taken any recently because the ones I have are such huge tablets and every now and again I get a mental block and am unable to swallow them. I kid you not.
So when I was offered the chance to try out LQ Joint Care Supplements I jumped at the chance especially because they are a liquid and come packed neatly in individual bottles. LQ joint supplement is supposed to promote joint, cartilage and bone health whilst increasing flexibility and mobility. I received one months worth of samples so my post is based just on that period of time.
The supplement contains key active ingredients such as Peptan marine collagen, hylaronic acid, glucosamine, chondroitin, copper, ginger and vitamin c. It also doesn't taste too bad (it has a pleasant cherry flavour) so can either be taken as a daily shot on its own or blended into your morning smoothie
I put together a little breakfast smoothie recipe which incorporates your daily shot:
LQ Joint Care Supplements Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
1 cup almond milk
1 LQ Joint Care shot
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 cup frozen strawberries
1tsp chia seeds
1 scoop Impact Whey Strawberry
Method: Add all ingredients to your blender and whizz until smooth.
After a month of taking LQ Joint Care Supplements I can't sit here and tell you they worked any kind of magic or that they were directly responsible for how I was feeling but at the time I remember thinking how much better my neck, upper back and shoulders felt in comparison to the same time the year before; those areas are where I carry the most tension and tightness in my joints especially when 'stressed'.
Would I continue taking them? I sure would as I think joint and bone care is an important area especially for women and those who are active. However, they come at the cost of £24.99 for 10 servings (available from Holland & Barrett) equating to just under £75 per month (which is out of my price range at the moment).
Do you take any supplements for bones and joints?! Any other ways you look after your bones and joints?!
