According to a medical journal's review on testing lots of different joint health products, Pycnogenol (Maritime Bark Extract) is the only one that really makes a difference to the state of the joints, I was told. Well, since I'm taking it, my joints are neither swollen, nor painfull, nor red. So I'm very happy with it. And I'm very happy to order them with Healthpost, as it's quick, reasonably priced and delivery is at my house. No need to go to the pharmacy, order it and go back to pick it up, eventually.
