Help Rebuild Cartilage (and Build Your Business) with Replenex®


In 1997 Melaleuca introduced Replenex‹our patented dietary supplement that helps promote and maintain healthy joints. For over eight years now, Replenex has been one of our most popular, most helpful wellness products. Read on and discover answers to frequently asked questions about this advanced joint-replenishing complex.


Question: What's in Replenex's patented formula?
Replenex contains the full research-recommended dosage of 1,500 mg of glucosamine to help rebuild joint cartilage. Glucosamine is a natural amino sugar critical to cartilage formation. As we age, our body's production of glucosamine naturally slows down. Replenex promotes joint health by replenishing the body's own glucosamine supply.

Unlike other supplements that contain glucosamine sulfate, Replenex is made with glucosamine HCl‹the most concentrated, absorbable form of glucosamine that has no sodium content.

In addition to glucosamine HCl, Replenex also has a proprietary blend of bromelain, ginger, and green tea extract. Bromelain, an enzyme extracted from the pineapple plant, has been shown to regulate the chemical messengers of the immune system to help maintain joint health. Ginger, one of the most widely used spices in the world, is recognized as a strong antioxidant to combat the effects of free radicals. Green tea extract, which is rich in bioflavonoids, is also a powerful antioxidant that helps keep collagen (a critical part of cartilage) strong and resilient. These three natural ingredients help improve glucosamine uptake and combat the effects of free radicals on joints. All three have been proven in scientific studies to promote and maintain healthy joint function.

Question: How big is the market for a joint health supplement like
Replenex?

Joint problems can no longer be classified as simply "an old person's disease." According to the American Arthritis Foundation, preliminary damage and joint difficulties can begin as early in life as age 30.

In order to help improve joint function naturally, people of all ages are realizing that glucosamine is extremely beneficial‹not only for those who have a great need to maintain joint health, but also for those aged
30­45 who want to prevent today's wear and tear on their body from showing up later as creaky, achy joints. In fact, the market for glucosamine supplements has grown from $553 in sales in 1997 to about $755 million in 2002‹with 10%­12% growth a year. This market will only continue to grow as baby boomers age and experience more joint difficulties.

Question: How can Replenex help grow
my business?

The American Arthritis Foundation reports that arthritis is the number one cause of disability in the United States and that 70 million Americans suffer with arthritis and chronic joint symptoms. According to the Canadian Community Health Survey, arthritis and other joint conditions affect nearly
4 million people aged 15 years and older‹that's nearly one in six Canadians.

These sobering facts indicate that for millions of people, simple everyday movements like buttoning a shirt, walking up a flight of stairs, or turning a doorknob cause extreme joint discomfort.

Sharing Replenex in your New Horizons presentations means you can potentially help thousands of people‹and keep those Preferred Customers for the rest of their lives.

Question: Why choose Replenex over
the competition?

The medical community has traditionally treated joint ailments with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, these drugs simply mask the symptoms of unhealthy joints. They don't actually help target the root cause of joint problems‹cartilage breakdown. And recently, the prescription NSAIDs Vioxx® and Celebrex® have been called into question because of side effects. Vioxx® was recalled from the market when a study found that long-term use increased the risks for heart attack and stroke.Another study revealed that people who used Celebrex® over an extended period of time also experienced an increase in heart problems.

Replenex's patented formula addresses the root causes of cartilage breakdown by safely promoting cartilage rebuilding and repair -- without any side effects.
