However, the symptoms disappeared when she restarted the mussel extract. This suggests that her condition was responding to the product.
"I thought I would pen to paper and let you know that I have been taking the mussel extract now for approximately 9 years. At first I started taking it for my arthritis, which was at that time affecting my hips and found complete relief. However, I also have dermatitis or eczema very bad since birth and many years had to be wrapped in bandages
As I grew older my skin always looked red and chapped, so on taking the mussel extract I found my skin became not so bad or dry looking. I found this out after taking 2 bottles and then, not having any arthritis pain, stopped taking the capsules and after about a month my skin became red and itchy again. So now although I get arthritis at times in various parts I take it all the time mainly for my skin.
I thought I would write and tell you. It might benefit someone else".
