I've heard of it, but I've never tried it. I read that Buchu was good too. Don't boil the leaves. I would need to read more about it before I took it tho.

I have heard alot of people use this for arthritis pain relief I also read that you should take 350mg twice a day for UC,and that alot of people found it significantly improved there symptoms it was not clear how long you had to take it before you could in expect improvement,basically its aherbal anti- infamatory
