For the past few years I have been getting cortisone injections every six months to help alleviate hip pain in order to maintain my regular exercise regime, but since I started taking MEND Orthopedic, I haven't needed too. The soreness and aches in my hip joints after working out are gone! I love the Mango Tangerine flavour - it tastes great and isn't at all chalky . I mix it with frozen fruit for my morning smoothie every day. I would highly recommend this supplement to anyone with joint pain!
