I decided to try wild lettuce for my joint pain and stress. It does help reduce the pain and I am pleasantly surprised at the calming effect it has on me. I do not feel the same level of stress and anxiety that I normally would, very impressed. Also I am sleeping more deeply.
Fab product. Much better than paracetamol and natural too. Wouldn't use anything else now
