Labrada ElastiJoint Island Punch -- 11 oz
Why not Stevia instead of Sucralose aka Splenda
I received this product with such high expectations the listed ingredients are awesome together. I have used MSM and Vit C in combination with exceptional results so I was very happy to find this product with those same ingredients plus a few more. The powder dissolves well in room temp water and has a great fruit punch flavor except for the taste of sucralose which is present with every swallow. I was very sad and disappointed when I discovered sucralose aka splenda and not stevia or even cane sugar was used to sweeten this product. I have researched the effects of this particular artificial sweeteners on the body and therefore cannot in good conscious recommend this product to anyone. On the other hand if the company were to replaces the artificial sweetener with a natural sweetener then I would be glad to recommend it to all my family and friends.

Essential Daily Use
I've been taking Labrada ElastiJoint, Island Punch flavor, for over three years and find it very helpful in counteracting joint stiffness. My doctor was impressed with how little sodium it has. I've pretty much taken it every day in 8 ounces of water and become noticeably stiff when I don't take it for a week or two.
There's a new flavor out, Fruit Punch, which I received in this last shipment. It's so sweet that I'm diluting the dose in 10 ounces of water instead. I prefer the Island Punch flavor but am making do.
I gave Quality 4 stars rather than 5 because I've noticed that the taste sometimes varied from jar to jar (Island Punch).
