IJoint action

Creaking joints - and the almost involuntary comment "Ooh, I must be getting old" that seems to accompany them - could be a thing of the past thanks to GelasanPlus, a fine powder made from gelatine flakes and calcium, magnesium and iron. Together they help to maintain the cartilage and connective tissue around the joints, as well as the bone marrow. The collagen protein in gelatine is also good for the condition of hair and nails.

GelasanPlus is soluble. It costs pounds 10.99 for 200g from health-food stores. Call 01932 354211 for stockists.
