Our son started experiencing debilitating inflammation in his hip and knees as a result of a Crohn's disease flair. The pain was literally keeping him from walking and waking him from sleep 2-3 times per night. He began taking Meriva while waiting for insurance to approve an MRI of the hip to make sure there were no fractures. After using Meriva 500-SF combined with either fish oil or another product that contains pepper for 3 weeks, he is able to walk again. He's unable to take NSAIDs due to possible liver complications so this has been a game changer for him. He's 14 and currently takes a total of 2,000 mg (recommended by his Dr.) daily to help with this crazy flair. I highly recommend it!
My pain & inflamation are now under control with more mobility to do things I love!
Stuff works awesome!!!
