Do you know of the product RestoreX?

Q) I recently read an article on a product which claims to be an effective and natural anti-inflammatory product that restores flexibility and eases aching, painful joints, muscles and tissues in a very short time. The product is called RestoreX and contains celadrin. I wonder if you have any information or know of any research that has been carried out on this product to confirm this.

A) The active ingredient of RestoreX is celadrin, a substance which is claimed to increase the lubrication of joints. RestoreX also contains, among other things, zinc, bromelain and reservatrol (the ingredient in red wine that's supposed to help arthritis). A clinical study using a cream containing celadrin demonstrated very mild benefit on mobility (pain was not measured) which permits the manufacturer of RestoreX to claim clinical benefit for their product. Further work is needed before firm recommendations can be made.
