Hello! I was recently sent the Regenovex Gel and Capsules to try. I was really excited to try these two products because I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and suffer from painful and stiff joints on a regular basis.
"Two our of three people with joint problems achieve symptomatic relief with Regenovex, a supplest derived from special green-lipped mussels. An eight-week observational study has also confirmed Regenovex is effective against a broad spectrum of joint discomfort."
So what actually is Regenovex?
Regenovex is a technically advanced range of products for joint care from the smart technology experts at Mentholatum. The Regenovex range includes liquid filled capsules and a readily absorbing gel. Packed into the gel and capsules are two main ingredients, Marine Binovex Oil and Hyaluronic Acid.
Marine Binovex Oil
Marine Binovex Oil is a pure marine lipid oil, from Green Lipped Mussels only found in the waters between North and South island of New Zealand. Bionovex Oil contains polyunsaturated fatty acids, including omega-3. Marine lipids have been shown to help encourage the body to produce its own anti-inflammatory agent, lipoxin.
Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in the body in a wide range of tissues, including the joint cartilage. It is also a major component of synovial fluid, the natural lubricant found in the joints. Hyluronic Acid has many different functions in the joint; restoring lubrication, providing cushioning, allowing movement and helping to maintain the health of the joint.
"Regenovex is a unique combination of Hyaluronic Acid and Bionovex Oil which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These ingredients have a proven synergistic effect (which means they are more potent when mixed) and previous studies have shown Regenovex protects cartilage tissue and delivers an anti-inflammatory effect superior to ibuprofen."
Regenovex Gel (40ml/80 applications) - £11.29*
Out of the two products the gel has to be my favourite. This is because I get an instant feeling of relief as soon as I apply the gel to my joints, it feels cool and soothing. The gel can be applied up to three times daily, including at night time to joints. The gel is non-greasey and absorbs really quickly. The only problem is that it doesn't smell too great and feels sticky for about a minuet until it all absorbs. My knees can be really stiff and painful with my Arthritis. I've been using the gel on a daily basis, and have defiantly noticed less discomfort.
Regenovex Capsules (30 capsules) - £23.99*
The capsules are to be taken daily with a nice cold drink and are Gelatin free. When taking the capsules for the first time it is recommended to take two capsules for the first ten days. I've been using the capsules for about two weeks and have not noticed a huge amount of difference. It might still be early days so I'm going to keep on taking them. One thing I love the capsules is that they don't have a taste or give me any indegestion.
