This product has been used for arthritis, bursitis, inflammatory muscle and joint conditions. The herbs are known to cleanse debris and build-up away, so begin slowly and work up to the full dosage on the bottle. The formula contains:
(aerial parts) herb helps keep the joints healthy and contains many trace minerals because of its unusually deep root system. It has an alkalizing effect to help adjust the body’s pH, and promotes mineral/vitamin absorption because of its balanced nutrient content.
(stems and strobilus) herb is noted for its trace mineral profile and is an excellent herbal source of bioavailable silicon, calcium, magnesium, chromium, iron, manganese and potassium-all necessary for healthy joints and adjoining tissues.
(fruit) is a proteolytic enzyme found in pineapple and other plants. It enhances the efficiency of protein digestion needed for repairs, and also seems to specifically benefit the joints by nutritionally helping the body to reduce swelling and inflammation.
(leaves) herb contains aromatic compounds to help the body maintain a balanced nervous system, thereby helping the body prevent muscle cramping.
• Celery (
seed) helps the body deal with excessive uric acid in the blood, which may end up in the joints, and nutritionally supports the digestive and nervous systems.
• Black cohosh
(root) works with the body to help prevent smooth muscle spasms and normalize the circulatory system. It provides nutrients to help the body prevent stiff muscles, and has been used for this purpose by many Americans more than 100 years ago.
(aerial parts) flowers help, the body deal with inflammation and prevent muscle spasms, both benefits resulting from its nutritional boost.
(fruit) contains aromatic resins and influences the circulatory and digestive systems.
• Slippery elm
(bark) is another soothing herb, particularly important to digestion, where most health problems begin.
• Valerian (
root) is a safe way to smooth out the rough times, working particularly with helping the body relax the nervous system, affecting tense muscles, too. The name comes from the Latin valere, “to be well.” Nature’s Sunshine Product’s laboratory found it to be extremely high in assimilable calcium.
(root extract) contains both bitter and astringent compounds that work with the body as it shrinks inflamed tissues. It has been traditionally used as a nutritional solvent of certain mineral deposits – concentrated powdered extract.
(root extract) contains saponins that act like soap. In fact, Native Americans used it for soap. It is often used in folk formulas for breaking up obstructions in the body and is also famous for providing nutrients the body needs to deal with inflammation – concentrated powdered extract.
• White willow
(bark) contains salicylates known as anti-inflammatory compounds.
(root) is a mild but effective herb that nutritionally helps the body cleanse the blood and soothe irritated tissues.
