This is an effective formula for some specific types of arthritis. It does have 2 problematic herbs, Ma Huang and Fu Zi. (Ma Huang can cause sweating and Fu Zi is very warming.) They are safe in the right conditions but I would prefer anyone ordering this has the approval of a licensed Chinese Medicine herbalist.
