    I am 71 Male, and take a few herbal medications like glucosamine, Bromelain, Cinnamon, acacia berry, and ginseng, I do not like prescription meds, are the above doing me any good as I do not feel any better except my gout has healed, (Bromelain)

      Hi Ernie, Sometimes taking supplements is a leap of faith. If you don’t notice any obvious improvement then it’s worth stopping them to see if you then notice any return of symptoms. Glucosamine is mainly taken for joint health – if you stop it you may notice your joints become more creaky. Cherry extracts are good for joints so if you want to stop the bromelain you could drink cherry juice instead. Cinnamon is used for glucose control – if you have poor glucose tolerance then you may notice this worsens or you may notice no change. Ginseng is an energising herb that is usually taken on a 6 weeks on, 6 weeks off cycle. Acai berry can improve general wellbeing through their high antibioxidant content. Diet should always come first, so eat a healthy mediterranean style die with plenty of fruit and veg, and see how you go. Best wishes, Sarah B
