Taking ibuprofen, naproxen, or another NSAID for back pain has its risks; gastrointestinal side-effects (at times quite serious) are the biggest of them.

Now there’s yet another alternative – a cocktail of amino acids and anti-inflammatory herbs has been proven to alleviate pain and inflammation better than these pharmaceutical products.

The starting point for the latest research began with the observation that patients with chronic pain have decreased levels of the neurotransmitters responsible for pain inhibition and control of inflammation. Scientists developed a nutritional product to boost the body’s supply of the precursors needed to produce these beneficial neurotransmitters.

When the nutritional cocktail was tested, it outperformed ibuprofen, both in its ability to reduce pain and in lowering the level of blood markers of inflammation.
