Comments about NOW Foods Celadrin Topical Liposome Lotion, 4 oz:
I suffered a lateral tibial plateau fracture (breaking the top of the lower leg bone into multiple pieces, destroying the cartilage, and causing some long vertical cracks in the bone) 1.5 years ago. Application of this this product to my knees 2-4 times a day helps greatly in reducing the discomfort in the damaged knee and the slight discomfort in the undamaged knee.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Adults and children (2 yrs. of age and older), apply to affected area up to 4 times a day as needed. Massage into affected area until absorbed into skin. Children under 2 yrs. of age: consult a physician.
