I was a little skeptical at first, I used some and forgot about it. When I realized I did not hurt, it was some time later. Maybe it was the pills I always take having a little effect. This went on for a few days before I started to realize that it was the Creaky Bones formula that was working. We are so conditioned to conventional medicine, I really did not give it a chance! Real talk, this stuff works and it works well. It works better than I thought, it last a long time and it is better than taking pills to manage my pain.
