vickya Mon 10-Sep-18 08:46:59

I'd lkike to be on the trial too. I have had arthritis for years and been on painkillers for a long time. I keep my weight down and do tai chi and swim and walk to keep things moving but different joints hurt each day, especially first thing. I also remember having rose hip syrup from the clinic as a child. I did like it but would think the capsules are just swallowed so no taste and few calories.
