Over the last couple of weeks I have been looking at the natural remedies available for those wanting help with joint pain and stiffness. I am continuing with the theme this week, with a look at a product which was launched only a year ago, but from which we have had some fantastic feedback. The product is simply called 7.

7 is a combination of seven different natural ingredients, all of which have been reported to be helpful in joint health. They include turmeric and ginger, which are often used as natural anti inflammatories, other natural anti inflammatory and pain relieving nutrients, plus vitamin C and collagen.

Vitamin C and collagen have been used to try and help support joint maintenance and repair damage to cartilage. This means that this product could help both in relieving pain and inflammation as well as helping with joint repair and maintenance.

7 also claims that some people say that they have noticed benefits from using it in as little as seven days.

To be honest, when it was launched, with all these claims, I was highly sceptical – it sounded too good to be true. But over the last year I have been convinced that for those who are looking for something different to help with their joint pain and stiffness, 7 could well be worth a try. This is because some of the reports we have had back from customers who have used it have been amazing.

One lady in particular sticks out in my mind. She was someone we had been seeing for a number of months. She had used things like glucosamine and the celadrin I wrote about last week, and although she had seen some benefits, she was still struggling with a problem in her shoulder.

The damage and inflammation in her shoulder meant that it was extremely painful for her to move her arm, she had very little movement and had not been able to wash her own hair for months. She decided that she wanted to try 7 when it was launched, to see if it would give her any of the benefits they were advertising.

When she returned three weeks later, after taking the 7, it was to buy a second pot and give us a delighted demonstration of how much better her pain was. She showed us that she was able to lift her arm and told us that she had actually washed her own hair the previous evening.

These kind of reports – including a lady who came in and danced around the shop because her back pain was so much better – are what has given me quite a bit of faith in 7. Therefore I would say that anyone who is struggling with joint pain and stiffness, if you have not had any help from the other more well known products available, it could well worth giving 7 a go.
