When used consistantly, I find this product be effective. I was told it is good for anti-immflamatory purposes. I noticed that my carpal tunnel does not hurt. I was wearing a writst band, and have the product has enabled me to work with out it.
I started using this per the advice from my chiropractor for chronic back pain. I was seeing a chiropractor daily for several months without relief and at a high cost. I started using this product in conjunction with fish oil capsules daily. To my surprise I found relatively quick relief. I was at the point where I was going to have to get an epidural which is an invasive procedure that I was wary of. This helped prevent me from having to do that. The reason it helped is the pycnogenol which is a stong anti-inflammatory agent. I would recommend this product to anyone who is suffering from chronic pain in conjunction with use of fish oil. I continue to use this product and have very minimal back pain if any at all.
I have used this product for over two years. Since I am not a big fan of most citrus fruit, this has been a great addition to my diet. It has helped my digestive system as well as giving me a regularity I'd never experienced before. Although regularity is not advertised as a benefit of using OPC-3, it is a wonderful side effect!!
