GOPO® Joint Health Plus Ginger

GOPO® Joint Health Plus Ginger supplement combines the active rose-hip compound – a galactolipid known as GOPO® – with extracts of the plant-based nutraceutical, ginger. GOPO is proven to reduce joint pain, stiffness and improve joint mobility and ginger is known for its multiple active components that make it a powerful pain relief for musculoskeletal conditions. Laboratory studies into GOPO® have demonstrated that it can switch off certain genes responsible for producing proteins and enzymes that have been implicated in inflammatory joint destruction and switch on genes that help to produce collagen and cartilage 5, which are essential components of a healthy joint. GOPO® has been evaluated in numerous rigorously-conducted, placebo-controlled, clinical trials involving patients with difficult-to-treat chronic joint conditions, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis 1-5. Efficacy results have been consistently positive and evidence supporting the benefits of GOPO® has been presented around the world. High levels of the galactolipid GOPO® are found in GOPO® Joint Health and GOPO® Joint Health Plus Ginger.

Eternity Revisited: Messages on Life from my Near-Death Experience 

In the 21st century, with the advent of the internet, we now have access to thousands of accounts of near-death experiences across many cultures, from Plato’s time more than 2,300 years ago to the present day. In the near-death or clinically dead state, many report a euphoria of love that continues throughout their lives—their fear of death diminished or eliminated—their lives enriched forever.

Joe Geraci was a young man in his thirties, a former police officer and educator, when a haemorrhage came close to ending his physical life. In Eternity Revisited, Joe captures the events leading up to his clinical death and the trauma, confusion and frustration that followed. Post-NDE, he recounts a life feeling immersed in love and perfection while living in an imperfect world—a dichotomy—a foot in two worlds.
