Osteoarthritis – Does Sierrasil Work? – No

One of my patients started on Sierrasil and said there was literature on its effectiveness – it does not say that it helps pain though..

I am only interested in benefits in pain – other measure contain so many elements they can artificially inflate benefits. Results on pain were here:

sierrasil

There is no differences longterm there; they got slightly better results adding  cat’s claw. WOMAC disability scores were the same at 6 weeks+

Comment – I would still stick to SAMe if I wanted to go herbal way:
