Has anyone tried GOPO?
« on: October 21, 2018, 05:27:46 PM »

I came across this name by chance while browsing a health discussion about joints and arthritis  [commercial link removed]
Have any of you used it? In the discussion which I saw, someone was singing its praises.

Looks interesting. I haven't tried it but have take rosehip supplements for joint pain (which this is derived from), and found it affective.

The reviews look good.

I tried GOPO for about 4 months. It definitely worked for me for joint pains but I had to give it up eventually because I got very fed up of the side effects (gastrointestinal). Worth taking unless you tend to suffer from irritable bowel (IBS-D) type symptoms!

   Thanks for that Beaker. I might give it a try.

Have just been reading the Menopause Matters mag on line and there is an article on joint pain.  It mentions Gopo, so is worth a read.

i have been taking two tablets morning and two before evening meal for a few years. My husband who is a biochemist recommended me to take it when I was diagnosed with advanced osteoarthritis. My hands would not work properly along with other joints. I think it really does help a lot. My hands still get painful from time to time but nothing like they would without the supplement and they donít lock up anymore. I havenít had intestinal problems but do always take before a meal. It isnít cheap but on Boots 3 for 2 it is in my opinion worth it

Thanks Herdwick. Do you get it in a Boots store or is it only available online? I might try it.

When you start you do three tablets twice a day for two weeks (I think) then to two twice a day

I have eventually got round to buying it. Just 1 box to start with as I tend to try otc products and then forget that I have them. I threw out a box of Jointace last week which had a 2013 use by date. Will let you know how it goes.

No because I haven't been consistent about taking them.

Oh, I know all about that with my vitamins. Don't know how I'd manage if I had to take prescribed meds.

I am consistent with prescribed meds but not with others.
