Like so many other people, I began hitting the gym at the start of January. As I get older and wiser – or just older, I’m not sure yet 😉 – my approach in the gym has changed a bit. My typical approach is that I don’t let anything stop me, even when it sometimes should. After sustaining a massive knee injury using a stair machine back in 2010, I’ve learned that it’s OK to listen to my body and quit when something doesn’t feel right. There’s a bit of pressure in gym culture to sweat blood when you exercise, but it’s very important to take care of your joints because an injury can put you out of commission in ways you can’t imagine. And the gym is supposed to be about getting healthy, right?
In the spirit of health, I received a nice package from Osteo Bi-Flex containing their MSM Formula and Triple Strength with Vitamin D. Osteo Bi-Flex contains glucosamine and chondroitin – click here to read more about these ingredients.
I always tell you to check with your doctor before starting a new supplement, and that’s exactly what my Grandma did when I gave these to her. I thought of Grandma right away, because she has osteoporosis and takes supplements every day for her joints and bones. Once her doctor gave her the go-ahead to start her new Osteo Bi-Flex regimen, she really liked them. She also shared them with her adult daughter, because naturally every mother wants to keep healthy habits in the family! The only thing Grandma mentioned was that the pills were a little on the big side for her personally, but fortunately, Osteo Bi-Flex has introduced the new Ease line of mini-tablets that are 80% smaller. They’ve thought of everything!
