Pros: Has a combination of natural herbs to aid in absorption. Good price!
Cons: Only available from Melaleuca Reps or online.
If you are middle aged, a former sports athlete who has had unusual wear and tear on the body or someone with arthritis or Fibromylagia, you may be interested in Melaleuca Replenex Joint Replenishing Complex. I have been suffering from the beginning stages of arthritis and also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia several years ago. One of the suggestions my doctor gave me was to take a good supplement for your bones and joints. She recommended Glucosamine. I have tried several products on the market containing this amino acid and one of the better ones is Melaleuca Replenex Joint Replenishing Complex. Read on to find out more about this product.
Melaleuca Replenex Joint Replenishing Complex comes in a white bottle containing 90 tablets. This is a 30 day supply, taking 3 tablets per day. The main ingredient in this formula is Glucosamine which is an essential amino acid. It aids in the formation of cartilage which acts as the cushion at the end of all the bones in our body. It also prevents bones from rubbing together. Do you ever have a squeaky knee or ankle? If so, your body could use a little help with cartilage repair!
Melaleuca Replenex Joint Replenishing Complex contains the most absorbable form of Glucosamine, Glucosamine HCI, in the amount of 500 mg. per tablet for a total of 1500 mg. a day. It is combined with other herbs and antioxidants to provide maximum absorption and to also prevent any damage from free radicals.
Glucosamine HCI, calcium, ginger root extract, bromelain, green tea leaf extract, microcrystalline cellulose, stearic acid (vegetable), croscarmellose sodium, cellulose, silicon dioxide, and magnesium stearate (vegetable).
My Experience With Replenex
I have taken this product for a couple of years. One of the drawbacks is that it is not available in store. You have to purchase this from a Melaleuca Representative or online. My cousin used to be a Representative so I could order directly from her. On the plus side, this formula is not as expensive as some of the products you will find in the drug store or health food store. Replenex is currently on sale for only $9.99 per bottle. Regular price is $14.50. I have paid as much as $20.00 for another brand on the market. I really like the combination of herbs in the Replenex formula. When purchasing other brands you normally just get the Glucosamine. So in purchasing the Replenex, you are getting a little more and I think better product.
This product does not give immediate relief but after two weeks of normal use, you will start to notice a difference. Your joints will start to become more flexible. After about 4-6 weeks you will find that you do not have as much joint pain. It's no miracle quick-fix, but it certainly does improve your quality of flexibility and also pain.
I sometimes forget to restock Replenex in my busy schedule. In fact, this happened recently and is why I'm writing this review today. After a couple of weeks of NOT taking this, I will start to get very stiff, even from just sitting for 10 to 15 minutes. I am also reminded when i hear my ankle creak. Once I get back on Replenex, and stay on it for a couple of weeks, the stiffness does not take effect in that time frame. If I sit for an hour, yes....but it is not unbearable when I take this.
