I bought this for adrenal support, inflammation and PMS help. I'm amending my review to give this the 5 stars it deserves. Several times a year, PMS hits with strange sole, palm and ocular sockets pain. This is a very potent analgesic that alleviates that bizarre pain when nothing else does. It's also a strong anti-inflammatory. It is used in S. America to relax muscles and alleviate back pain. I have not had the back pain I sometimes get druing PMS with this. The reason I purchased this one over the Codizone or Nonsinflamol is the other contain hypoglycemic and estrogenic herbs such as Qat tea. I can only imagine those would be a dream if you have diabetes or menopause but I was diagnosed with life-threatening hypoglycemia as well as high estrogen which I detox with CDG. This remedy is perfect for me. It has no unpleasant taste at all, it's not very strong so I barely taste it in 4 oz hot water. It's also wildcrafted or organic and yet almost thrice cheaper than the other brand. I read, after ordering this, that Chuchuhuasi is a hallucinogen. The first times I took 10 or 15 drops in hot water before bed, I had very vivid dreams, and I rarely recall my dreams. Both times the dreams were not unpleasant, they were rather interesting. No lucid dreaming however. The only thing: I really wish the label would indicate whether it is harvested in Peru or where exactly.
Working so far

I have not used this product on a daily basis as yet but the days that I do use it, it has lessened the pain in my knees and hip joints. I am trying out different "drinks" to see which one masks the taste of this the best.
