Let's break things down first - all the info you will need on the supplement will follow then a personal trial of the product with pictures and a video to support my findings.

On first impression the box is colourful and provides a multitude of information on the product. There are testimonials from world renowned athletes on the side of the box which is a nice addition to all the info they provide. Opening the box you will find the tablets and a flyer on Wellman's other products just for men. The tablets are reasonably small and I find them easy to swallow; they are dark brown/black in colour and have smooth texture. After taking the tablets for thirty days I have noticed a marked difference in my energy levels, they are at a sustainable/high level. I found there to be no ill effects whilst taking the tablets so that's a big bonus as some brands have troubled my digestive system. I train twice a day sometimes six days a week and find these tablets to be a reliable aid in my training. Don't just take my word for it - Wellman has an array of world renowned champions who choose these products:
Mark Foster - 5x Olympian 6x World champion 8x World record holder. Mark is one of the most successful British swimmers of all time. "Wellman helps me to maintain optimum energy release and performance.
Jim Rees - Triathlete/Ironman/Race Across America Competition. "Personal use of Wellman has allowed me to stay healthy and maintain energy release which when training for endurance events like Ironman or RAAM is exactly what you need to allow you to carry on training"
A general Multi-vitamin is not necessary in addition to Wellman
There are no artificial colours
No Salt or Yeast
and a big thumbs up from me :) Wellman is not tested on animals :)
Do not take on an empty stomach
Remember if you suffer from any food allergies consult your doctor before taking
Let's move on to the Gel
To help stay supple & flexible-
Jointace Gel Aroma-Active Oils with Glucosamine-Chrodroitin
Aromatic massage gel with Glucosamine, Chrondroitin & Essential Oils (Lavender, Clove, Eucalyptus, Fennel, Ginger, Orange and Menthol) (which makes a great smelling gel). This gel is the first ever topical massage gel for the joints, with a unique dual action formula of natural Aroma Active essential oils, combined with the benefits of Glucosamine and Chondroitin which are soluble.
I began application on the same day of supplementation of the tablet in the previous review: 26/10/2011
Again the box is very appealing and comes with various information on the product. When I took out the tube and opened the lid I was pleasantly surprised at the aroma that came from inside. The gel has an aromatic smell, which makes a pleasant change from the usual clinical smelling gels and I found this very appealing. Nothing worse than smelling of pine disinfectant!! Application was easy; I used it on my neck as this is where I have most trouble with aches and pain. The gel was easy to apply, adhered to the skin well and dried a lot faster than other gels I have used. This gel was of great benefit, soothing my aches from first application and with continued use I found I had a much better range of motion in the neck area. I also allowed a friend to try this gel as he has been suffering with knee joint problems and below I give his comments:
'I have tried most brands of joint care gels with not much success, but trying Jointace I found it had a really pleasant smell, application was very easy and best of all ...........IT WORKED ........ wish I had known about this before!! One thing is for sure, I will only be using Jointace in the future -give it a try, you might be as surprised as I was' - J. Turner
