Well, working out quite a bit has made my joints angry. Everything pops or creaks or explodes while I'm working out. Yes, I warm up. Yes, I stretch. No, I'm not working harder then I should. I just have an old lady body.
So I figured there's probably a vitamin or supplement out there that could help me. Currently, I'm only taking a multi-vitamin for "healthy hair, skin, and nails" and I'm not opposed to switching it up. Seeing that I live in Pittsburgh, I surfed on over to gnc.com and started researching (GNC is based out of Pittsburgh in case you didn't know).
Best case scenario...I would find something that supposedly improves my joints, helps my hair/skin/and nails, and does not have caffeine or the like in it (I do not need something else keeping me up at night). And yatzee, I found this one:
I read reviews like it was my job. Most people seemed to like it. Some of the biggest complaints were:
- It gives you fishy burps
- I don't really care - it wouldn't be the first (or the last) time my burp tastes like fish
- It upset your stomach
- Well, I'll have to try it out to see
- It turns your pee a neon color
- Seriously? First of all, is that really a bad thing...is it hurting you to have a different color pee? Does this even actually occur?
- It's expensive
- This is something I'm willing to spend money on - I really don't want to have old lady joints.
I eat my breakfast (yummyyummy parfait) at work, so after I finished I took down all 8 of those suckers (yes, there are 8 pills you have to take every day). An hour or so passes, no upset stomach...no fishy burps. Seems like this really was made for me! Well, about 20 minutes ago I went to the bathroom and guess what MY PEE REALLY IS NEON COLORED!!!!
Now, this is by no means a deal breaker, and I'll get back to you all on whether I think it actually does anything, but I just found it really hilarious that my pee is neon colored. I was almost tempted to take a picture, then decided that would be weird.
