Testimonials | SierraSil


SierraSil has provided great joint and cartilage relief for a countless number of people. Read through our testimonials and see what SierraSil can do for you!


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.

I am an avid tennis player – I play every day and I experience the usual aches and discomfort caused by over usage of the same muscles. I was introduced to SierraSil about 5 years ago when I tweaked my knee. I started taking it as a daily supplement and I could not believe how quickly my discomfort subsided after only a week of taking it. I am now a firm believer and have been taking it every day since.

It works.  You just have to try it.

Since using SierraSil these past 10 months on a regular basis I have noticed a significant decrease in knee joint discomfort, particularly at the end of a long day standing. As a BC Athletics official, I am on my feet nonstop for the day,  and before using SierraSil regularly, I was pretty well crippled at the end of the day.

Now, I can manage a full day of officiating, and any small discomfort at the end of the day is well handled by the pain relief spray. I no longer have any night discomfort and am able to walk without constraint, including going up and down stairs. Kneeling in my garden, getting up and down from sitting or from the ground are no longer a problem. I am looking forward to increased improvement as I continue to use SierraSil.

I have neck pain, upper back and lower back discomfort. It is chronic. I’ve tried different products during the years, and nothing has relieved my back discomfort like SierraSil. I tell everybody I know about the wonderful relief I get with SierraSil. If you hydrate (at least 6 glasses of water) and “adhere” to this everyday. You will find remarkable relief from back discomfort. Yeah for SierraSil.
