I recently had the opportunity to try Elations. Elations is a joint supplement drink that is designed to help relieve osteoarthritis and improve overall joint health. I personally think that these drinks are great for anyone wanting to be healthy, not just people with Osteoarthritis. Let me start by telling you why at 26 years old I have arthritis (among other problems). At the age of 20 I was trying to learn how to roller blade in a park and I ran into a large hole. My leg twisted and snapped. I broke both my tibia and my fibula (both bones in the lower leg) and had to have several operations. One of my operations involved the Doctors dislocating my knee (if you really want the gory details email me...keeping this as pg as possible). So, needless to say I have VERY bad Osteoarthritis in both my leg/ankle area and my knees. I am constantly on the lookout for new products that can relieve some of my pain and allow me to forget about that fateful day in the park. Elations is one of these products.
Elations contains 1500mg of Glucosamine and 1200mg of Chondroitin. These supplements are well known to ease osteoarthritis pain and allow people to lead normal lives. I have taken these supplements before in capsule form, but the problem is that they are HUGE nasty tasting capsules. I always start out taking them and end up choking on the capsules and giving up on them. Now, with Elations I don't have to worry about that anymore! Elations comes in 3 flavors Cranberry Apple, Raspberry White Grape and Black Cherry. I love the Raspberry White Grape! It reminds me of White Grape juice, only it tastes better. It is definitely my favorite and the best part is that you can't taste the supplements in it. I also liked the Cranberry Apple. It has a unique and yummy taste. For some reason I was not a big fan of the Black Cherry. I normally like black cherry flavored drinks, but I felt like I could taste something added to that one. It wasn't bad, just not my favorite. Elations also contains Calcium and Boron. Calcium is great for bone health and boron helps the body absorb many supplements including calcium.
Elations is supposed to work in as little as 6 days! For me, I felt as though it was working after 2 days. I didn't have any arthritis pain from my second day on and I still have not had any pain. This stuff works great.
More exciting news for Elations fans...they now come in powder packets! I was able to try the Cranberry Apple packets and they tasted just like the premixed drinks. You have to drink more with the packets (16oz instead of 8oz), but with the delicious flavors that isn't a problem. I like these because I can keep them at my work, or in my purse in case I forget to bring my bottle with me.
If you need more encouragement, Elations is only 30 calories per bottle! Or 25 calories for the powder packets. If you have any joint problems, osteoarthritis or you are just concerned about your health...Elations is for you!
