How many times have you heard someone complain of joint pains? I'm very sure at some point of time, you would have heard someone either in or outside the gym mention this to you. Typically, there are many factors that could bring about this dilemma in an individual. In my case, it is due to years of heavy lifting...24 years to be exact!!!

Of course some of my problems are related to displacement of some nerves which can actually mimic a typical joint pain. For these sort of problems I usually seek the help of a friend who is a certified Myotherapist. But some of the other joint problems like the knee, elbows and wrists etc.would require a different approach. A Myotherapist will not be able to fix worn out cartilages, tendons and ligaments.

This is when I turned to joint protection supplements....the idea is for it to work from within by consuming these products regularly. I have tried using Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM for months but only to be dissappointed by the outcome. Nothing happened! Nada!

Then I started using another product called Super Cissus Rx which is supposed to help strengthen your joints and help rebuild cartilage etc...already on it for more than a month...yet still not much difference. People have made claims that this product is so good that within a couple of weeks they feel so much better...I guess my case is very different because nothing happened.

Of course I've not forgotten to add some essential fatty acids along the way...such as omega 3 & 6 to help with its anti inflammatory properties that  relieves joint pain.

So, in my quest to look for the right supplement to help with my chronic pain from wear and tear, I came across Olivenol livin' products. I've seen and heard of this products some 2 years ago and have heard first hand on how this stuff is good and all. So I actually wrote to them explaining my situation and as a small challenge, they offered me their products to try out. All i have to do is keep a record here on my blog on a weekly basis updating people on how my progress is coming along.

Well, my batch of goodies just arrived today and all i need to do is take 2 capsules twice a day for 8 weeks. So guys, if any of you who have joint problems, you may want to keep track of my weekly report here. Who knows, it may help you solve your problems too.

Chondroitin is a popular dietary supplement. Chondroitin sulfate is used in combination with glucosamine. Studies showed that chondroitin-glucosamine for osteoarthritis have shown the combination is better than placebo, but benefits seem to depend on severity of joint pains.
