Looking for a natural way to get relief from aches and pains? British studies have confirmed that Devil’s Claw is an effective way to relieve back, neck, and joint pain. The secret weapon in the herb Devil’s Claw is harpagoside which has been a proven muscle relaxant and anti-inflamatory.
Devil’s Claw is found in the Namibian Steppes and the nearby Kalahari Desert of South Africa.
Devil’s Claw comes in capsules and tea form. Some prefer the tea and rely on it to relieve ailments such as arthritis, rheumatism and even gout. This makes sense to me because of the anti-inflamatory properties. What makes it even better is Devil’s Claw is a natural cleansing agent for removing toxic impurities from the system.
So many people over look the mighty power of the daily multi-vitamin.
Can you honestly say that your daily diet includes all of the vital nutrients that your body needs?
Most of us are in such a rush to get from point A to point B….we are prone to grab something from the vending machine or drive thru. A good multi-vitamin just helps to fill in the gaps. Your body needs vital nutrients to help with energy, slow aging, and reduce your risk of a range of health problems.
Bonus – Research shows taking in 25 mcg of vitamin K each day helps to reduce the risk of cancer, osteoporosis, and arthritis. Vitamin K reduces inflammation and promotes bone growth.

Winter comes with a chill in the air. For some of us it also comes with achy joints. In the past I would grab my normal over the counter pain relievers or sometimes I would have to take prescription pain medication.
That was before I discovered Pine Bark Extract!
Just taking 100 mg of Pine Bark Extract (pycnogenol) instead of prescription relieves my aches and pains. Pine Bark Extract (pycnogenol) is all natural and it works like prescription medicine. It blocks the inflammation, but without the side effects that come with prescribed medications.
The journal Phytotherapy Research reports that arthritis pain
can be cut by 56% while using Pine Bark Extract.

Who knew that a yummy beverage could also be good for achy joints!
Purdue University researchers just released new information that Green Tea does just that.
Green Tea is packed with natural anti-inflammatories. Drinking 3 cups a day with a twist of lemon
(the lemon stops your digestive tract from breaking down the anti-inflammatory properties)
can help to knock out those achy joints by up to 53%.
Just don’t forget the lemon!
