My naturopath recommended this. I was worried the taste would be too strong.
I was pleased at its very pleasant taste.
I have been taking this product 3-4 months and I noticed a difference in 30-45 days. My wife and friends are very happy also with the results.
I live in Vancouver BC and our winters are cold and high humidity. Worst possible conditions for arthritis. This winter was the worst for my knee. Had x-ray done and the doctor prescribed Celerbrex. The prescription included 4 pages of side effects. I took it for 15 days and after running out i noticed that my knee started aching again. It took me six days to refill. In the meantime i had made tincture of frankincense about two years ago so i increased my usual dosage and in three days noticed an improvement of my knee. After a couple of months there was no more pain. I make my own tincture of frankincense and as the weather improves i might be able to take a break from taking it daily until next winter. It really worked. It was a severe La Nina winter and spring here records were set for all the wrong reasons.
I love this tincture. It has definitely helped with the chronic diarrhea I had been experiencing for months.
Received the product very quickly after placing my order.
