Ease Your Shoulders from Stiffness

Got "50s Shoulder"?

That's what it is called in China when it becomes so hard trying to lift your arms over your head and it occurs most often in people in their 50s. And the toll of 50s shoulder goes way beyond the physical realm….

Indeed, if shoulder discomfort and lack of mobility have forced you to stow your tennis racket and golf clubs away in storage, that can be downright discouraging. You become resigned to thinking that your best years are behind you because you can no longer enjoy your favorite activities even though you may live at least a few decades more.

If you wish you could once again be able to perform the most menial of functional tasks, like reaching for something on a high shelf without wincing or groaning, give ShoulderEZ™ a try. ShoulderEZ is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) featuring 13 botanically-sourced herbs that may supports blood circulation and the musculoskeletal system.

Signature Formula Supports Shoulder Joint

From a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) perspective, there are a couple reasons why you may be having shoulder discomfort. First, is an obvious reason: injury. But also, according to TCM theory, certain "evils" may cause disharmony in the shoulder joint. These three evils are Dampness, Wind, and Cold, which can wreak havoc on a joint if you are not aging gracefully. That's because with the aging process comes a decline of Yang energy, as well as a reduction in Qi and Blood, with accompanying weakness of Liver and Kidneys. Consequently, the tendons connecting muscle to bone get less nourished and the body has less resistance to fighting the three evils. As a result, when wind, damp, and cold invade the shoulder, these evils cause Qi and Blood stagnation, which in turn result in Yang energy not circulating, causing blockages in the meridians.

In clinical applications, the formula which ShoulderEZ is based on has a successful track record for helping alleviate symptoms associated with Cold, Wind and Dampness. Furthermore, some of the individual herbs are clinically-proven in research studies to support normal mobility.

How does ShoulderEZ work?

Collectively, the herbs in ShoulderEZ disperse wind, expel cold, remove dampness, unblock the Channels and relax muscles and tendons.

Qiang Huo (Notopterygium Root) disperses cold and dispels wind, expels dampness, and alleviates soreness. Du Huo (Pubescent Angelica Root) dispels wind and removes dampness, as well as unblocks the Channels and alleviates soreness.

Gui Zhi (Cinnamon Twig) helps alleviate spasm by relaxing the muscles, warming and unblocking the channels (meridians), warming Yang energy and venting Qi. Qin Jiao (Large Leaf Gentian Root) disperses wind-damp, clears damp-heat and alleviates obstruction.

Hai Feng Teng (Kadsura Pepper Stem) and Sang Zhi (Mulberry Twig) both dispel Wind-Dampness and clear stagnation in the meridians, helping to alleviate obstruction.

Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root) nourishes and invigorates the blood. Chuan Xiong (Szechwan Lovage Rhizome) expels Wind, moves Qi, and like Dang Gui, helps invigorate the blood.

Bai Shao (White Peony Root) relieves spasm and nourishes the Blood. Jiang Huang (Turmeric Rhizome) breaks up blood stasis and moves Qi, as well as unblocks the Channels.

Bai Zhi (Angelica Root) disperses wind and expels dampness. Ru Xiang (Boswellia Resin) invigorates the blood and promotes Qi movement.

Finally, Gan Cao (Licorice Root) tonifies the Spleen, augments Qi, and harmonizes the properties of the other herbs.
