I took Lifeguard for two months, after going to a health store asking for a turmeric supplement to help with joint stiffness and general health, and having this product recommended. When that supply ran out I didn’t immediately replenish it. After about a week and a half, I noticed that the stiffness I used to experience in my fingers first thing every morning was back (I’m not sure if it’s arthritis or something else), as well as the occasional pain in one of my knees. I actually hadn’t noticed the easing of these symptoms over the 2 months, but it was certainly noticeable once they returned. I will definitely keep taking this product.

I started to take the LifeGuard tablets a short while ago. I did this because I’m in my 40s and I know I have to start taking better care of myself – I’m getting older unfortunately!! I’ve never taken any supplements before but I know that inflammation is a cause of major disease in getting older. After looking at what’s available, I chose LifeGuard cause its been developed by a doctor who specialises in age care. If I’m going to take supplements then I want to know that I’m taking a good quality product. I have to say, that as a surprising and noticeable benefit of taking it, my sore arm and hand have vastly improved which is great and a tangible benefit, and I have a better sense of well-being.

As an ex-smoker, I suffered poor gum health for years following quitting. After two months of taking Lifeguard Essentials, my oral hygienist remarked that my gums are the least inflamed she’s ever seen them. She’s been looking at them every three months for the past four years! She asked me “what have you been doing differently” and the only thing is taking Lifeguard. This stuff works.

LifeGuard really helps me with my gout. I had no idea that gout was an inflammatory disease. When I stop taking it, I pay the price. I can definitely recommend LifeGuard.
