I was studying to be a concert pianist, but I had to change my goals because I developed tendinitis in my forearms. Even though I rested for several months, the pain wouldn’t go away. I majored in Computer Science instead of music, but I was still having trouble when I would type for long periods of time. My father suggested that I take a collagen complex and the results were almost immediate. I still can’t play piano as much as I want to, but I can use the computer for several hours a day without problem.
My best friends suggested that I try taking collagen complex to reduce wrinkles. I didn’t realize it at first, but when I stopped taking the collagen complex, my legs started aching during the night just as they had before until I started taking the collagen complex again.
My quads were getting very sore after spinning class and a good friend suggested that I start taking D-Ribose to help. Wow! It was amazing. I don’t seem to have any problems with aching legs after exercising.
My landlord suggested that I start taking D-Ribose when we were talking about weight training. I used to be sore for one to two days after lifting weights, but now I hardly feel sore after lifting.
I would get mild indigestion quite frequently and got in the habit of carrying a roll of Tums or Rolaids around to alleviate the discomfort. While on an airplane I sat next to a man who grew aloe plants and we got to talking. He said, “there is research going on about the anti-cancer properties of aloe at MD Anderson”. I started drinking aloe vera juice from Sam’s Club because from what I read it sounded like it would be beneficial. I now drink 8 to 16 ounces a day and have noticed that I no longer have indigestion. On the few occasions I have stopped drinking it I notice that my indigestion seems to return.
One of my employees, Larry, was suffering from sever headaches. He went to the doctor and they did a series of tests including a CAT scan to check for a tumor. They finally diagnosed that he had blockages in his carotid arteries. The doctor surmised that smoking for many years had contributed to his problem, so Larry quit smoking. I had read an article in Science News which extolled the virtues of CLA. I showed it to Larry and he started taking CLA from The Life Extension Foundation in addition to stopping smoking. The anecdotal evidence is that the frequency and severity of his headaches have lessoned considerably. I would surmise that the CLA has removed or at least slowed the build up of plaque in his arteries which has allowed an increase in the blood flow to his brain, thus lessoning his symptoms. The Science News article also mentions that CLA helps reduce the propensity of fat cell to get fatter and may also has anti-cancer properties.
I was having pain in my back right between my shoulder blades almost every night. My husband suggested that I start taking a collagen complex for wrinkles and the results were amazing. Not only did my wrinkles become less noticeable, but the aching in the middle of my back went away. On occasion when I have discontinued taking the collagen pills my back ache has returned until I resume taking the collagen again.
