I’ve been taking Thrive for inflammation in my lower back area, where I have a herniated disc. I work out regularly with functional fitness programs and my favorite workout is anything with a kettle bell. This can be challenging for me and I tend to get a lot of pain in the lumbar and hip area but this does seem to work as much if not more so the regular anti-inflammatory I sometimes take. I’m 6 mos into a serious workout program and about to increase my weight and reps in Russian kettle bell swings and squats. I am now having no pain in the lower back at all.
