Now that I am middle aged, many of my friends are starting to complain about arthritis and joint pain. I always tell them about Celadrin® and how it has helped me deal with a painful condition called costochondritis.
About ten years ago I had severe chest pain and thought I was having heart problems. I was diagnosed with costochondritis, which is an inflammation of the sternum area. My pain was searing hot and my joints were swollen, and the only remedy my doctor recommended was to rest and take aspirin on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, that didn’t work well for me, and I started doing research on natural supplements that might give me relief. I found glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM – but none of those worked as well as as fast as a product called Celadrin®.
I buy my Celadrin® from Vitamin Cottage, and it comes in 90 count bottles. The pills are small purple sofgels, which are very easy to swallow. One “serving” is three sofgels, but I usually take 2 in the morning and one in the evening. The label states that Celadrin® is made up of a proprietary blend of esterified fatty acid carbons (EFAC), and it also contains soy lecithin and fish oil. This product does not contain any “fillers” such as yeast, starch, sugar, salt, artifical colors or artificial flavors.
Since I started taking Celadrin® I have gotten the relief from my pain, and today I almost don’t even have any flare ups from my costochondritis! This product has been amazingly effective for me. I also take it along with MSM, since MSM also works for my seasonal allergies much better than any antihistamines I have ever taken. I believe that the combination of MSM and Celadrin® is a perfect solution for me.
It took me a while to find Celadrin®, and it was a result of diligent searching, both online and pouring through materials at my local library. I learned that Celadrin® helps reduce inflammation in the body by halting the production of prostaglandins, which are compounds that actually cause inflammation in the first place.
Celadrin® helps lubricate the joints to reduce inflammation and the resulting pain. Clinical studies have been done on this supplement, and have been published in the Journal of Rheumatology.
There are two forms of Celadrin® that I know about, a cream and the softgels. Personally, I prefer not to use the creams, simply because many contain parabens, propyl alcohols, and other chemical ingredients that I choose not to put on and into my body (yes, the skin is the bodys largest organ, and what you put on your skin ends up in your body).
I am so thankful that I found Celadrin®, and highly recommend that anyone suffering with aches and pains, arthritis, or other inflammatory conditons consider giving it a try.
The 90 count bottle lasts me a month, and costs me about $20. It’s certainly cheaper than the prescription drugs my friends take, and there are no known side effects, and it can be taken long term without the risk of any side effects. I give the Vitamin Cottage Celadrin® 5 out of 5 stars!
