Ad. Are you ready to dance the night away? If a dodgy knee is stopping you from hitting the disco, chances are you need GOPO Joint Health.

Joint pain is a common symptom of the perimenopause, and one I suffer from, so I was delighted to be invited to take part in GOPO’s Twelve Week Flex and Mobility Plan. I have been taking GOPO Joint Health supplements daily for three months and implementing a series of exercises and stretches.


GOPO® Joint Health

GOPO® Joint Health is made from 100% specially cultivated natural rose-hip and is the only product of its kind to contain a high level of GOPO® – a key component of the rose-hip which may play a valuable role in the care of joints and joint tissues.

GOPO® Joint Health contains high levels of vitamin C as well as the galactolipid compound. Rose-hips are best known as one of the richest plant sources of vitamin C. Following a shortage of citrus fruits in the UK during World War II, a generation of children were given a daily spoonful of rose-hip syrup.


Joint Pain and the perimenopause

It took me a while to link my aches and pains to the perimenopause, but according to medical experts (and my peers), it’s a frequent occurrence.

Pain, muscle aches and stiffness in the joints are extremely common symptoms during the perimenopause, menopause and beyond, which can be due to the lack of hormones estrogen and testosterone.


In addition to GOPO Joint Health, other treatment options include:

  • Medications such as ibuprofen can help reduce pain and inflammation.
  • A physiotherapist can teach you exercises to help strengthen the muscles around your joints and improve your range of motion.
  • Applying heat or cold to the affected joint can help reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce stress on weight-bearing joints such as the hips and knees.
  • In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair or replace a damaged joint.
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy can help if joint pain is a symptom of the menopause.
  • Some people find relief from joint pain through alternative therapies such as acupuncture and massage.

12 Week Flex and Mobility Plan

In addition to taking GOPO Joint Health, I have followed the 12 Week Flex and Mobility Plan, which you can learn about here. The exercises are easy to follow and its great to see improved flexibility over time.

My thoughts

GOPO is easy to take; I split the capsules and sprinkle over yoghurt or cereal, which is great for people who struggle to take tablets.

I noticed a complete absence of pain in my fingers during the winter months; I played with my children in the snow without any discomfort. I’ve also observed improved flexibility and a reduction in hip pain.

I’d highly recommend GOPO Joint Health, it’s an effective supplement for seasonal and perimenopausal joint pain.
