I took Lifeguard for two months, after going to a health store asking for a turmeric supplement to help with joint stiffness and general health, and having this product recommended. When that supply ran out I didn’t immediately replenish it. After about a week and a half, I noticed that the stiffness I used to experience in my fingers first thing every morning was back (I’m not sure if it’s arthritis or something else), as well as the occasional pain in one of my knees. I actually hadn’t noticed the easing of these symptoms over the 2 months, but it was certainly noticeable once they returned. I will definitely keep taking this product.
