Suffer from joint pain or osteoarthritis? Find relief with Microlactin

As of today, these knees are 45 years old. (Feel free to wish them a Happy Birthday!)

 Microlactin review

They’ve been good companions to my ankles and hips for a long, long time.

For the last little while, however, they’ve given me a bit of grief during high tension hill climbs on the spinning bike and on weeks when I’ve taught step aerobics several days in a row.

Apparently, there are supplements you can take to reduce joint pain and inflammation. The things I learn as I get older : )

Enter Microlactin.

relief from joint pain

 

Microlactin has been clinically shown to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis, resulting in

  • reduced joint pain
  • less stiffness
  • improved mobility

Although I love a little ‘google-assisted self-diagnosis, I’m not ready to call my knee twinges osteoarthritis**). Fortunately, Microlactin has also been shown to reduce generic joint pain in runners and strength training athletes.

Like me!

The main ingredients in Microlactin are cow’s milk and milk protein concentrate. There are,

  • no artificial colours or flavours
  • no preservatives studies
  • no sweeteners
  • no corn, soy, gluten, wheat or yeast

Kind of like drinking a whole lot of milk. (So if you’re vegan or lactose intolerant, it might not be for you. Also not recommended for pregnant or breast-feeding moms or those taking tetracycline antibiotics).

The dosage is 4 (rather) large capsules once or twice per day. I chose the second option (just my ‘more must be better’ attitude!), and have been taking mine with breakfast and dinner for the last 3 weeks.

I haven’t noticed a huge difference in the way my knees feel when I exercise, although yesterday’s spin class was completely pain free and I’ve had no stiffness or inflammation today (as I usually do the day after I teach Step class and Spinning back to back).

That’s not completely surprising, as online information about the product suggests that it takes about 2 weeks to start noticing results. I still have about 10 days worth of product left, so I’ll report back in a couple of weeks and let you know whether I’ve seen further improvement!

If you suffer from joint pain or osteoarthritis, give Microlactin a try; it might just be the relief you’re looking for!

** According to Wikipedia, “Osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease or osteoarthrosis, is a group of mechanical abnormalities involving degradation of joints, including articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. A variety of causes—hereditary, developmental, metabolic, and mechanical—may initiate processes leading to loss of cartilage. When bone surfaces become less well protected by cartilage, bone may be exposed and damaged. As a result of decreased movement secondary to pain, regional muscles may atrophy, and ligaments may become more lax.”

    • Thanks Kodjo! Just pulled you out of spam. Sorry!
      I had a wonderful birthday and my knees are still feeling great! (even after step ups today!)

  4. Injury free and pain free is always a plus. Great post and hope to follow along with continued success.

    And those knees look fabolous. I think if there were a fashion show or a red carpent walk for knees, yours would be in the cover!

  5. I have been taking glucosimine, condroiton, and MSM since things flared up in this 54 year old bod. I took that years ago in my late 20’s & now, started again. Seems to be helping but let me know how yours goes. I also got from a source that 500 mg ginger root capsules & 500 mg glucosimine a day for osteoarthritis worked wonders. This person took it & said it really did help! From a doc too!

    • I’ve tried gluocosamine before too. I just haven’t been taking it regularly. Aging sucks.

  6. Happy birthday! Those knees have to be fit because they have brought you so far:)

    • Thanks Talia!
      Now I have to go and read about your quickie bed workout… very intrigued by the title!

    Happy Birthday! Really interesting article. I always feel like if it helps your body feel better and allows you to do the things you love, then it’s gotta be good. Thank you for sharing this, it looks like a great option for those with joint pain.

    • Carrie,
      I think so too. There’s nothing unhealthy in it (unless you can’t digest milk products). I don’t like taking supplements that have a lot of unpronounceable ingredients…

  8. I know many people have joint pain, will recommend Microlactin to those who have knee pain, previously I always recommend glucosamine.

    • Thanks David! I have tried glucosamine too, not for joint pain, just for recovery. Perhaps I need to give it another spin!

      • joints hurting, check out the Trivedi Effect. I had tennis elbow and after energy transmissions it has almost completely subsided and i don’t even use any recovery pills. just saying. keep blogging Tamara, enjoying it.

  9. Do you think it would work just as well or better if used with glucosamine?

    • Maggie, I can’t really answer your question. I’ve not used glucosamine myself and I’m not a medical doctor or physiotherapist. My best suggestion to you would be to try it! And document your experience. Best wishes. Tamara
