Took way too long to be shipped within the same state. Product seems decent...... but turns out it is overpriced.
Hi Bob, We are very sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with your shipping experience. Your order was placed on May 17th, shipped out on May 18th and was delivered on May 26th. Therefore, it took 6 business day (excluding weekends and public holidays) for you package to be delivered given that your shipment transited in the middle of the novel coronavirus which drastically changed entire supply chains. We did and we continue doing everything we can to ship orders as fast as possible but unfortunately cannot control the impact of a global pandemic on shipping carriers. Still, we regret that your experience did not match your expectations. We always strive to be better and improve the customer experience/our products so any feedback – negative and positive – is always welcome and very appreciated. If we can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. Have a beautiful day and take good care. The Codeage Team.
As a former professional athlete I have been having cartilage/knee pain for 12 years now. Finally put some attention to the 'like-cures-like' healing process and that's why I invested in this company and their Beef Cartilage. I feel that even with just my first bottle that my pain has gone down considerably and I am excited about continuing this product. I trust this company because of their quality and sourcing and intention to help people. Will definitely keep investing in not only this product but the company in general! Thanks Code Age!
I love the idea of healing my body in this way. I will come back to report any changes I might notice
It seems to help my energy levels immediately. It is too early to tell if it is helping my damaged ligaments. It does smell 'bloody' where other brands of glandulars do not. It was a great price through subscribe and save and will reorder.
