As a suggestion for helping relieve my hand, ankle and foot pains which have plagued me intermittently for several years, a cousin of mine, a very knowledgeable former urban dweller, said "Try these. They work. Just give 'em about two weeks." She was right! Another family member asked what "those big green torpedoes were for". When I told her, she evidently started taking them on the sly. In a week or so her painful and swollen ankle was back to normal. I'm a baseball fan and three for three is batting one thousand! We're all believers. These natural big green torpedoes really do work on inflamation!
