My SierraSil started running low but I knew that the pharmacy at the Metro where I work has my name on file to be called for re-orders every six weeks. You guessed it, they didn’t call. When I asked why, they said their supplier does not carry it anymore. I wondered why they couldn’t have called and told me before I ran out and had to experience the awful dicomfort of arthritis. The knees went first because I am a skier and must stand all day. Then the hands and finally my back and neck. This takes about 3-4 days without SierraSil. I was at my wits end with the discomfort until I called the number on my empty SierraSil bottle and spoke to Digesh who was very empathetic and told me I could get 4 bottles for $180. The SierraSil was delivered to my door in 4 days and got me back on track. Now I am taking 2 SierraSil every morning and do all the things I did before, like standing and working without discomfort. Arthritis will always be there and I hope SierraSil will too. Thank you SierraSil.

I suffered from elbow aches for months and decided to try SierraSil after hearing Erin Davis endorse it on CHFI. My elbow discomfort cleared up within days of taking SierraSil. I have been taking it for months and recently ran out while on vacation in the USA. Within 2 days the discomfort in my elbow returned leaving me desperate to return home to my local IDA. I can’t speak highly enough about SierraSil. It is a quality of life changer.

I have been taking 4 capsules of SierraSil Joint Formula 14 for more than 2 years now. Since taking SierraSil I am having less issues with my knees and muscle discomfort in general. As a side benefit I have also found that my bowel movements have been very regular.

Since the 2010 Olympics, I have had two ACL reconstructions and a micro fracture surgery on one knee to fix the cartilage damage (2 cm 2 bare bone). I continue to ski, bike and run, but my knee swells and aches. SierraSil keeps my swelling down, helps my aching and supports my active lifestyle. As a holistic nutritionist, I love the fact that the ingredients are natural!

I’d been experiencing severe hip discomfort when walking or gardening. I’d heard about SierraSil on the radio and decided to give it a try. Within two weeks I felt relief. I’ve been on it now for almost four months and I am gradening and walking again. Thank you SierraSil!

Dear Michael,

As you know, I’ve been a pharmacist a long time, even before I opened Finlandia in 1972 with a passion to help de-medicalize consumers, especially seniors, due to a growing dependency on prescription and OTC products for maintaining quality of life, irrespective of the potential health risks.

That’s why, when we learned about SierraSil™ through mutual friends back in 2004, we were pleased to see your commitment to validating the safetv and efficacy of SierraSil through clinical and other research, and for Finlandia to be the first retailer of the product. For most of the time since, I have personally be using SierraSil Joint Formula14 and most recently also trying Joint Formula Active with Meriva™ and SierraSil.

In my opinion, SierraSil, the mineral ingredient, doesn’t have any peers despite the competing claims of many products. SierraSil is truly unique in its activity and function, even if we don’t know fully how it works. Yes, there is evidence of calming inflammation due to age, activity and health conditions, of reducing cartilage breakdown, of binding heavy metals permitting their excretion, and as you have shared with me from recent research, some muscle and sport benefits. But there is likely more to it thari that, so I encourage SierraSil to continue its commitment to research. In time, I think the role of chelating minerals will be better understood by the medical community and population at large. Despite low absorbability, these minerals are essential to optimizing health in diets and environments plagued by less than optimum nutrition and quality, and unfortunately, that is true for most us.

My joints have never felt better. I am an avid soccer player and coach and my knees used to be very troublesome. I’ve started taking SierraSil and my knee + joint pain is gone. Thank you SierraSil, I highly recommend it.

My 5lb Brussels Griffon, Taurus, started to limp. He is 12 years old. I remembered about hearing SierraSil and called the 1-800 number to see if I could use the product on my wee Taurus. To my delight there was a pet formula. I ordered the product and started Taurus on SierraSil. I crushed one tablet every day with his breakfast meal. Within a few days there was a noticeable difference in the way he was walking. Thank you SierraSil for making a difference in Taurus’s quality of life. One pill a day is making a huge difference for Taurus’s quality of life.

In April 2013 I was diagnosed with severe arthritis in my sciatic region which was very painful plus required chiropractor treatments. A friend’s mother suggested to try SierraSil. I used a bottle of 90. I am PAIN FREE and very flexible. I bought a bottle of 180 and gave it to a friend who has drop foot, I toed him to do three different exercises, in the meantime he is going to physiotherapy and doing amazing with almost no sign of drop foot. He owes it to SierraSil because he has more energy and flexibility. He will continue to use SierraSil and recommend it to others in need.

I wish I had known about this product years ago. It is a GREAT product which cannot be replaced.

We chose to try SierraSil after trying many other pain relief products, supplements and treatments for hip pain. After close to a year of trying different products we tried the SierraSil Pain Relief Spray, it worked immediately and an added bonus is that it is an all-natural product. We decided to try SierraSil after hearing so much about it from friends. Our experience with the products as well as with the staff has been amazing and we definitely recommend the product for anyone looking to relieve joint pain and maintain joint function.
