How it works

Researchers have found that the so-called dis-eases of aging have similar underlying factors: a decrease in cell stability leading to the release of compounds that promote damage, inflammation, spasm and pain. RECOVERY® changes the behaviour of cells that have been damaged by chronic inflammation, injury, surgery or over-training. The result? Reduced discomfort and an improved quality of life.

After 27 years joint pain gone

I have been in constant pain with degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis since the age of 32. After no difference with anti-inflammatories, I soon realized that nothing works like RECOVERY®. At 60 years old I feel like a kid some days. My hands are free from pain and my energy levels are up so the extra weight is falling off, thanks to RECOVERY®.

Irene Hambly, BC

In 6 weeks joint pain disappears

I was told that I would always suffer from joint pain. Previously it had been so bad I could not get on most shoes, let alone walk without pain. After 6 weeks on RECOVERY®, the pain and swelling have completely disappeared.

Maureen Morket, Montana

Injury, pain, gone in 3 weeks

I would not have believed it if I had not experienced it myself! Contact sports for 20 years and a car accident left me with chronic pain and arthritis. After three weeks on RECOVERY®, the pain was completely gone.

Pat Meehan, Pharmacy Technician, Texas

“The perfect formula for pain”

As a Doctor of Chiropractic, I am in the business of correction. The body has an innate ability to mend itself given the proper building blocks of nutrition and supplementation. This is the beauty of RECOVERY®, the perfect formulation for not only eliminating pain, but doing so through correction and rebuilding of the joint and connective tissue. My patients are living testimonials to that.

Dr. Markus Thiel BPE, CATA, RRT, DC, Sports Therapist, Kelowna

No more drugs, no more back pain

RECOVERY® has changed my life so much. I have not had cortisone shots or used NSAIDs in two years. Prior to taking RECOVERY® I was taking cortisone shots every two to three months in bone, hips and sacroiliac region.

Healing and Pain-Relief Formula

For many of us, the freedom to move is simply a dream: a hope that is uppermost in our thoughts. Through targeted and potent activity, RECOVERY® can help make everyday tasks possible again. Over and over, we hear how pain is lessened, stiffness relaxed, and mobility regained. Is it any wonder we named our product after its well documented action?


How long should I take RECOVERY®?

It is safe to take RECOVERY® indefinitely. Once primary symptoms disappear and healing is confirmed, lower doses are appropriate. Most individuals continue taking RECOVERY® as a preventative.

Is RECOVERY® good for protection against injury too?

As we age our connective tissue continues to breakdown making us vulnerable to injury and disease. Stress, physical and emotional, breaks down the body by producing free radicals and releasing cortisol into the bloodstream, which renders connective tissue at risk. Athletes and active individuals greatly benefit from continued use of RECOVERY® to neutralize any potential damage.

I am experiencing diarrhea and stomach upset from RECOVERY®.

Minimal side affects may occur with RECOVERY®. Some may experience a looser stool, flatulence and abdominal gurgling, or other detoxifying symptoms. Simply adjust your dosage levels to ensure your comfort. Begin taking RECOVERY® before food until your body adjusts. Drinking more fluids with RECOVERY® is often helpful. RECOVERY® is safe, effective and produces outstanding results for those who use it consistently.

I am experiencing constipation from RECOVERY®.

Although uncommon, constipation can result from your body resetting healing parameters. Because RECOVERY® kills harmful bacteria, the system may become overloaded. If this is the case, increase your dosage level to excrete pathogens more quickly. Drinking more fluids with RECOVERY® is often helpful.

*Please note that there are no toxic doses of RECOVERY®.

I am allergic to sulfa drugs.

An allergy to sulfa drugs does not mean that RECOVERY® (containing MSM) should be avoided. Research supports that there have been no known contraindications connected to the use of RECOVERY®. The MSM component of RECOVERY® is natural occurring sulfur found in plants. Scientific reports of allergies to MSM are not found. If you are experiencing what appear to be allergy symptoms when taking RECOVERY®, this is most likely a part of detoxifying, an “induced symptom,” not an allergy.

Is RECOVERY® safe to combine with the drugs I am taking?

RECOVERY® is safe to take with medications. RECOVERY® has no known contraindications. Due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-catabolic action, combining RECOVERY® with drugs can lead to reduced drug toxicity.

My symptoms seem to be getting worse

This truly will pass. As the body moves out toxins, you may experience an increase in symptoms but know that this is short lived and improvement is just around the corner.

What makes RECOVERY® different from the other anti-inflammatory products on the shelf?

Nutricol®, a potent proprietary bioflavonoid complex (EGCG, proanthocyanidins, theaflavin, resveratrol from grapes and tea) is the primary active ingredient in RECOVERY®. It reinforces membrane and matrix structure (halts damage that initiates inflammatory and spasmodic reactions). Nutricol® increases membrane receptivity to hormones such as insulin, IGF and thyroxine (required for anabolic repair/healing). While other products may arrest symptoms, RECOVERY® repairs the damage from the inflammatory process.

I have diabetes. Is RECOVERY® safe to take?

Yes, RECOVERY® is safe to take if you have diabetes. RECOVERY® improves blood sugar regulation in diabetic patients as it delivers insulin more efficiently to the cell. Continued monitoring of sugar levels is encouraged.

Please be aware that Health Canada has COMPLETELY removed warnings regarding Glucosamine from its published monograph, as this infoprmation was inaccurate. Glucosamine does NOT interfere with blood sugar.

Corn is the source of vegan glucosamine. I am allergic to corn.

Glucosamine is a purified component of Non-GMO corn, which is absolutely safe and produces no allergic responses.
