Reduce osteoarthritis pain
by 20% in just 60 days
Do you have osteoarthritis in your knee? If so, researchers from Iran may have discovered a wonderful breakthrough for this debilitating condition.
These researchers thought that the flavonoids of the passion fruit peel might help with the inflammation in osteoarthritis of the knee. They were right!
They randomized 33 patients with osteoarthritis of the knee in a double-blind study (the best kind). The participants received either a placebo or passion fruit peel (150 mg daily) for two months. They evaluated the patients for osteoarthritis symptoms in standard scorings after 30 and 60 days.
At 60 days, pain, stiffness, physical function, and composite scores improved 18.6%, 18%, 19.6% and 19.2% respectively. The placebo group worsened in every category during this time.

These results are amazing! A food-source nutrient that can trump NSAID poisons. And you haven't heard about it on the news! You don't have to wonder why.
If you have osteoarthritis in any joint, I suggest you add passion fruit peel to the growing list of flavonoid sources (like curcumin, green tea, seaweed) that can improve your life. You can find it at many health food stores.
