I'm excited to share these with you because I LOVE vitamins! I'm a firm believer that the more natural you go in medicine, the better. Always better to prevent than to treat, etc. etc. I even used to manage a retail vitamin store, back in the day!
I was given the opportunity to give four New Chapter products a trial run, and I'll be posting all four reviews as I go through them. After the very last one, one lucky Serial Access Mom reader will be lucky enough to win a full-sized bottle of their choice from the four reviews!
Similar to the way fish oils work (and completely complementary to them, also), Zyflamend helps soothe your joints by fighting inflammation in the body. It is a combination of whole herbs, both Eastern and Western, that have been concentrated to ensure high potency. Here's a bit about New Chapter's Supercritical Herbal Extracts from the site:
“Supercritical” means Super Purity, Super Potency, Broad Spectrum, and No Chemical Solvents. We take nature’s finest herbs and then extract and highly concentrate (as high as 250 to 1) their precious ingredients. We do not isolate out single ingredients or spike our extracts with synthesized additives. We deliver the wisdom of nature with the complexity and organic nuances of the natural herb preserved for you. In fact, the supercritical process is the gentlest way to extract these delicate plant compounds in a manner to optimally preserve their potency and stability. And when you take New Chapter’s supercritical extracts, neither you, nor the environment, have to contend with chemical solvents.
I was able to try this great product out for about a week. While I have no known joint issues, I do have to say that it made doing squats a lot easier on my knees. (With the added 20 lb weight of a 10 month old in your arms, squats can be quite the workout!) No side effects occurred, and from other reviews I've read that's pretty common. I'm familiar with the product more because we sold Zyflamend at the vitamin retail store I managed years ago. It has been on the market for quite some time, and many of my customers swore by it! Combined with omega oils (fish oils, flax, etc.), Zyflamend soothes joints like no other.
