Ancient Herb STOPS Knee Pain

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Knee pain can really slow you down.

It gets a between you and your active lifestyle and makes everyday things like climbing a flight of stairs seem impossible.

And your doctor is no help. He offers only two options — dangerous drugs or agonizing knee replacement surgery.

But these may not be your only options.

You see, there’s an ancient herb that can help soothe away your pain and keep your joints in tiptop shape throughout your golden years.

And believe it or not, it’s been helping folks fight pain since the days of primitive medicine.

This pain-busting herb is called ashwagandha.

And because it can help with sleep, anxiety, arthritis and even Alzheimer’s, it’s been one of the cornerstones of Ayurvedic medicine for over 3,000 years.

More recently, scientists have discovered that ashwagandha can drastically decrease knee pain.

For the study, 60 participants with existing knee pain took either 125 mg or 250 mg of ashwagandha twice a day for 12 weeks. At the end of the trial, all participants experienced a significant reduction in arthritic pain and knee swelling.

However, the folks getting the most ashwagandha also significant reduction in pain, stiffness and disability.

Even better, some folks in the 250 mg group saw these results in as little as four weeks.

By simply adding this ancient herb to your daily routine, you can stop your nagging knee pain in its tracks. Plus, you’ll get the added overall health benefits of ashwagandha.

You can pick up ashwagandha at natural health retailers or online from vitacost.com. A month’s supply costs about $10.

Live well,
