CONTAINS HERBS TRADITIONALLY USED TO

HERBAL DIETARY SUPPLEMENT
Back in Action, our most complex herbal formula, has an interesting history as a traditional formula for aches, pain, and soreness of muscles and soft tissues. It was developed in China by Shaolin Temple monks to treat injuries received during combat and martial arts training. Records indicate they used the herbs in Back in Action to treat temporary soreness due to injury or overuse as well as chronic muscle or connective tissue pain caused by older injuries.
The recipe was nearly lost in 1928 when a warlord set fire to the Shaolin Temple and the monastery's library burned to the ground. Through a stroke of luck, a scribe had removed several documents to his own quarters to copy, and these escaped destruction. Among them was the herbal formula for aches and pains that is the basis for Back in Action. Herbalogic is happy to make it available again.
Take Back in Action for muscle and joint aches and pains due to occasional inflammation, exercise, injury, or physical labor. Also take before and after deep tissue massage, especially when massage is indicated due to injury. Back in Action contains natural analgesics that support pain relief. However, its strength is that it contains a number of herbs believed to promote accelerated recovery of muscles, ligaments, soft tissues, and bones from overwork and injury.*
Shake well and take 1 mL (about 20 drops or half a dropper full) per 50 lbs. of body weight by mouth two to three times per day, or as directed by your healthcare professional. If taste is too strong, add to a small amount (one to two ounces) of room temperature water or other liquid and drink.
