Elations is a joint pain and maintenance treatment that is in the form of a drink rather than capsule or cream. Judging from the company’s official website, it seems to be marketed more towards ‘baby boomers’, those who may have started experiencing some pain but are still active and want to prevent their joints from becoming more damaged.
The site itself is very bright and attractive, and extremely easy to use, featuring clearly labelled sections. It covers all the necessary information regarding the product, including the causes of joint pain and cartilage degeneration and explanations of the main ingredients. There is a comprehensive FAQ section, plus ‘case studies’ and customer testimonials. The products can be purchased either from the company directly or in retail stores (for which links are provided). If bought from the company, the customer can opt to joint the subscription program, whereby they are shipped a new case of Elations every month.
The Elations website offers general information on joint care, including nutrition and fitness tips and there is a special section for health care professionals who may want to sell the products themselves.
Elations – Facts
Elations can be purchased as a pre-mixed drink or as a powder. Both formulas are available in two flavours, Cranberry Apple and Raspberry While Grape and both contain the same active ingredients, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Calcium and Boron. Glucosamine and Chondroitin are commonly used in joint treatments and work synergistically to repair existing cartilage damage and provide the building blocks to create stronger, more durable joints. Elations contains triple the amount of these two ingredients normally found in other formulas, and the website provides clinical studies as proof of their success. Also added to the formula are Calcium and Boron. These are particularly useful when found together as the Boron allows the calcium to be absorbed easily without the presence of Vitamin D and also fights damaging free-radicals.
The product labels are provided for all the products so all the ingredient amounts are shown clearly.

Elations – Conclusion
Providing the flavors are to one’s taste, Elations would suit someone who experiences occasional pain or stiffness in the joints, rather than an individual with debilitating arthritis or rheumatism etc. The fact that it is a drink, makes it very convenient, although the same ingredients can also be purchased in capsule form for much less cost. Overall though, Elations would be a good way to benefit aging joints without the hassle of creams or capsules.
