    My right hand hurts terribly from osteoarthritis to the point I was wearing a hand brace in winter it would ache so badly. NOT ANY MORE. Bought an organic, Alfalfa leaf capsules by Solaray ($8 & at many health food stores). It says to take twice a day, BUT I only take once a day, as I'm not pill person.

    Alfalfa stops the water retention that I had a problem with. I am 60 and thin. My urination is like that of a 12 year old kid. I can stop taking it for a week and can start to feel the back pressure in my kidneys, so I don't stop. I take 5000 mg daily and never intend to stop.

    My Mother, my husband and I have taken Alfalfa for years for arthritis pain. I works without taking painkillers which upset my stomach and are sure not good to take so many. I am very upset that they have been discontinued.

    Comment:
    Taken for Osteo Arthritis triggered by FREQUENT Gout. After 2 pills I noticed a drop in pain level,and I had no idea when I purchased about the cholesterol benefit. This may be a very good thing for me in the long run. Much safer for my heart than NSAIDS.
