I love magazines, I guess I have a bit of an addiction to them. As you can imagine I was delighted to receive a copy of the first ICA magazine, and after setting myself up with a cup of tea I sat down for a good read.
Tucked in the back was an advert for Revive, a Galway based company who are developing some fabulous health supplements. I knew about the ‘green’ Revive (Revive Active) as my sister had been raving about it. I had also had a little sample in my ITWBN goody bag! But here was a blue one – and one especially for joints.
My hands are a constant struggle for me since being diagnosed with arthritis. They simply hurt all the time, and I am struggling with flexibility. Because I am me, I am doing everything I can to keep going, including injecting with methotrexate which is a bit hectic to say the least.
I am delighted to say that I have added the Revive joint formula to my anti- arthritis arsenal. The supplement that comes in a sachet and is mixed with water doesn’t taste like chocolate, but it isn’t bad at all. It has all the building block ingredients that are supposed to reduce pain and increase mobility. With any luck it is also going to repair cartilage, and reduce inflammation ( a biggie for me).
I have been taking it for over two weeks now. Last night a friend was over and asked me how my hands were. I had to stop for a minute to think. They hadn’t been hurting all day! Could be a coincidence, but I will take whatever pain-free days are available.
This is a long-term solution and I will be updating everyone on the blog regularly. Revive uses the slogan the science of nature. I can do that! I am delighted that I am not adding any more baddies into my blood stream, and feeling better to boot!
