Ancient herb soothes away stubborn joint pain

If you’re suffering from joint pain, you know there’s a heck of a lot more at stake than a little morning stiffness or the occasional pops and creaks.

It’s about being able to dance at your children’s weddings… work in your garden… play a round of golf with old friends… or bend down to hug your grandkids.

And if joint pain is stealing those precious moments away — of if you’re spending hours on the couch each day, in a fog from some powerful painkiller – you’ll be thrilled to learn that lasting, natural relief may be just around the corner.

All thanks to an Indian wonder herb we’ve been telling you about for years.

Indian researchers recently wrapped up a study that proved again how ashwagandha, a traditional cure that’s been used for thousands of years, fights inflammation and relieves nagging pain. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis spent weeks on a traditional Ayurvedic treatment plan that included 5 grams of ashwagandha, twice a day.

Most of the folks who took ashwagandha reported that their pain levels and swelling plummeted — and they were moving around better than ever. Plus, they had lower levels of a key antibody linked to the worst rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.

The study was part of a growing movement in India to use modern research methods to put traditional Ayurvedic medicines like ashwagandha to the test.

But this wasn’t the first study to show the pain-relieving power of ashwagandha — just the latest. In another study, three out of every four rheumatoid arthritis patients who took 3 grams of ashwagandha three times a day saw their symptoms significantly improve.

Plus, ashwagandha has been proven to relieve anxiety, increase energy by supporting your adrenals, and even blast away plaques linked to Alzheimer’s.

The word ashwagandha means “strong as a horse,” and it looks like it can help keep you healthy as one, too.

If you’ve been putting up with aching joints — or just want to feel sharper and more energetic — give this ancient Indian herb a few weeks to work. The secret to feeling young again just may be one of the oldest cures on the planet.
