    Ease Your Shoulders from Stiffness

    Got "50s Shoulder"?

    That's what you it called in China when it becomes so hard trying to lift your arms over your head and it occurs most often in people in their 50s. And the toll of 50s shoulder goes way beyond the physical realm….

    Indeed, if shoulder discomfort and lack of mobility have forced you to stow your tennis racket and golf clubs away in storage, that can be downright discouraging. You become resigned to thinking that your best years are behind you because you can no longer enjoy your favorite activities even though you may live at least a few decades more.

    If you wish you could once again be able to perform the most menial of functional tasks, like reaching for something on a high shelf without wincing or groaning, the good news is you don't have to get expensive, invasive surgery to feel like you have a brand new shoulder.

    Instead, give ShoulderEZ™ a try. ShoulderEZ is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) featuring 13 botanically-sourced herbs that may help promote circulation and reduce swelling.

    Signature Formula Beneficial for Shoulder Joint Problems

    From a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) perspective, there are a couple reasons why you may be having shoulder discomfort. First, is an obvious reason: injury. But also, according to TCM theory, certain "evils" may cause disharmony in the shoulder joint. These three evils are Dampness, Wind, and Cold, which can wreak havoc on a joint if you are not aging gracefully. That's because with the aging process comes a decline of Yang energy, as well as a reduction in Qi and Blood, with accompanying weakness of Liver and Kidneys. Consequently, the tendons connecting muscle to bone get less nourished and the body has less resistance to fighting the three evils. As a result, when wind, damp, and cold invade the shoulder, these evils cause Qi and Blood stagnation, which in turn result in Yang energy not circulating, causing blockages in the meridians.

    In clinical applications, the formula which ShoulderEZ is based on has a successful track record for helping alleviate symptoms associated with Cold, Wind and Dampness. Furthermore, some of the individual herbs are clinically-proven in research studies to support normal mobility (see research below).

    How does ShoulderEZ work?

    Collectively, the herbs in ShoulderEZ disperse wind, expel cold, remove dampness, unblock the Channels and relax muscles and tendons.

    Qiang Huo (Notopterygium Root) disperses cold and dispels wind, expels dampness, and alleviates soreness. Du Huo (Pubescent Angelica Root) dispels wind and removes dampness, as well as unblocks the Channels and alleviates soreness.

    Gui Zhi (Cinnamon Twig) helps alleviate spasm by relaxing the muscles, warming and unblocking the channels (meridians), warming Yang energy and venting Qi. Qin Jiao (Large Leaf Gentian Root) disperses wind-damp, clears damp-heat and alleviates obstruction.

    Hai Feng Teng (Kadsura Pepper Stem) and Sang Zhi (Mulberry Twig) both dispel Wind-Dampness and clear stagnation in the meridians, helping to alleviate painful obstruction.

    Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) helps heal trauma in the joint by nourishing and invigorating the blood. Chuan Xiong (Szechwan Lovage Rhizome) expels Wind, moves Qi, and like Dang Gui, helps invigorate the blood.

    Bai Shao (White Peony Root) relieves spasm and nourishes the Blood. Jiang Huang (Turmeric Rhizome) breaks up blood stasis and moves Qi, as well as unblocks the Channels.

    Bai Zhi (Angelica Root) reduces swelling and alleviates soreness, while also dispersing wind and expelling dampness. Ru Xiang (Boswellia Resin) invigorates the blood and promotes Qi movement.

    Finally, Gan Cao (Licorice Root) tonifies the Spleen, augments Qi, and harmonizes the properties of the other herbs.

    Many herbs included in the formula, such as Qiang Huo1 and Qin Jiao2, are shown in studies to contain active ingredients that may promote healthy inflammation response.

    How do I use it?

    The standard dosage for ShoulderEZ™ is 6 tablets each time, taken 2 to 3 times daily with or before meals. One bottle lasts users 11 to 16 days. The dose may be doubled for a quicker and stronger response as needed (e. g., in an acute phase). Consult your practitioner for precise dosage recommendations based on body weight and other factors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Solution For My Frozen Shoulder I purchased this product and began using it about 1 week ago. I have had a very painful "frozen" shoulder and left arm for almost 4 months now , from incorrect weight lifting. I had several acupuncture and cupping procedures, all to no avail. I received relief from this product within 2 days by taking twice daily. Every day I have further improvement and mobility. I feel great now, no more pain. This is like Tui Na in tablet form. I bought 2 bottles. I will buy 3 more just to have available. I am convinced beyond any doubt that this is perfect !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relieves Shoulder Pain My acupuncturist prescribed ShoulderEZ for a chronic pain I get in my right shoulder which travels under my shoulder blade and under my arm. She recommended I take 10 per day. After only 3 days the pain subsided. It hasn't cured the pain completely but I would give what used to be a pain level of 9 (1-10) to about a level 2 or 3.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My painkiller at early stage of frozen shoulder I had suffered a major frozen shoulder over a year which involved/ended up with a tendon tear with unbearable pain. Unfortunately at the later stage this pill did not work (as without knowing a part of tendon in my shoulder was torn and heavily inflamed), BUT it helped me at the early stage of a few month when my shoulder started hurting and being frozen, I did not need to use any OTC pain pills. So, I would recommend this for bearable kind of shoulder pains before it heals by itself/you get a treatment from a specialist. My shoulder/neck area tends to get stiff, I keep a bottle in my medicine cabinet.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Frozen shoulder I love active herb products! I bought this one for my husband who is in PT for a frozen shoulder. He took it for a couple of weeks and actually said that it got worse. I think it was working and the muscles were hurting from whatever was happening from the herbs but he soon discontinued it. My shoulder hurts on and off and the next flare up, I’d be willing to try it myself.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So helpful! I was prescribed this and the NecKinder for chronic shoulder & neck pain by an acupuncturist. These are the only products that make me feel any better. I have been working on my constant pain by going to a Chiropractor and Acupuncturist, doing physical therapy exercises, forcing my boyfriend to give me constant neck rubs, and trying just overall health-concentrated changes to try and heal and rid myself of this pain. These pills make me feel less tight and achy and I have definitely seen an improvement in my energy and mood since my energy isn't being sucked up. I only gave it a four star review because you have to take so many pills a day and if you run out or stop, the pain returns. So it doesn't completely heal you but it definitely helps with the pain and inflammation so you are more able to concentrate on the other practices to get healthy.
