CONDITION: Joint Pain
"I have less muscle soreness, better recovery (good to go again next day) and you feel you can dig deeper when training."
Not only is Martin an award winning pharmacist from Martin’s Chemist in Sydney, he also trains & competes in marathons & triathlons. Back in December 2012, Martin’s physio said he needed a knee replacement. Shortly after, Martin started Rose-Hip Vital with GOPO and has since competed in several competitions & still has both his knees!
Martin has been in touch to give us an update on how he is doing!
‘At the beginning of this year, during January, I was struggling to get back into training. This was due to twisting my knee a number of times on a trek in October. During runs, my knee would be stiff and sore and after the runs it would be inflamed. At the shop, we were out of RHV. I placed an order which arrived in early February.
I am currently running freely 6 days/week with a long run of over 20km on Friday. My only knee problem now is a bit of weakness. I can kneel and sit back on my heels. I am currently taking the 3/day of the new Joint Strength RHV.
I have been having great results with the new 150 caps in terms of less muscle soreness, better recovery (good to go again next day) and you feel you can dig deeper when training. I have taken other supplements in the past. I used to take a supplement with grape seed oil, ginkgo and other antioxidants which helped (and have tried fish oil and krill oil) but once you started on RHV, you stopped taking everything else because of the positive effects you had beyond what the others offered.
I recently raced in the Canberra Marathon in April, accompanying my daughter in her first marathon. My knee is still great & I am now training for the City2Surf in August, the Marathon in Sydney in September and Ironman Busselton triathlon in December. If I have flare up around the knee, I takes the loading dose and within 24hrs it settles it! ‘
