I have a variety of health issues from Fibromyalgia to bulging disks in my neck and scoliosis in my lower back. Pain relief can be challenging – especially natural pain relief. As someone who prefers to try natural solutions, I definitely find it hard to come by. When I had the opportunity to review products from Lakota I was thrilled.
Disclosure: I received a variety of products to facilitate my Lakota Review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family.
Lakota is rooted in traditional medicine and made with natural ingredients. It works to relieve joint, muscle, back, or arthritis pain. Lakota offers a great alternative to conventional drugs.
Lakota is herbal medicine including: white willow bark, yucca root and devil’s claw, boswellia and others; combined with modern, natural ingredients such as glucosamine, ASU (Avocado Soybean Unsaponifiables) and collagen type II.
For my review, I received a variety of products including: Back Pain Roll-On, Triple Action Back Pain, Joint Care Formula, Muscle Pain Roll-On, Maximum Strength Muscle Pain, Lakota PM and Joint Care for Dogs.
I was definitely excited to try the Lakota products. The capsules are easy to take and, of course, I love that they contain natural ingredients. For supplements, I definitely believe they have to be taken regularly for at least a month, and it’s even recommended on the bottle to be taken regularly for at least 4 weeks to get the full benefit. So it is hard to know if there is improvement for the pain relief. I also started physical therapy, so I’m going through a transition there as well. They’re so easy to take, though, that it’s been easy to add it to my routine!
I like that the Lakota PM is not only a natural sleep aid, but also helps with pain relief. Unfortunately, finding a natural sleep supplement that helps me has been impossible, and since it has the same key ingredients, I wasn’t surprised it didn’t help either. My husband, on the other hand, has really been benefiting from Lakota PM. He also has trouble sleeping and also suffers from chronic pain, so this has been great for him! They’re also average size and easy to take.
The Roll-On Pain Relievers are amazing. It is also recommended to be used regularly for 1-4 weeks to see results, but I (and my husband) felt relief right away. Both burn a little at first (particularly the Back Pain Roll-On), but based on the ingredients, that is expected. I definitely wouldn’t recommend using heat in addition to using them. I have been having terrible lower back pain, and the Back Pain Roll-On has offered much welcomed relief.
The Roll-On Pain Relievers are quick and convenient. Simply shake them a little and roll them. It’s easy to cover a large area plus we don’t have to worry about getting it on our hands. We can feel them start working right away. They do need a little “dry time,” but they do absorb quickly. They are soothing and don’t leave a greasy feeling. We have definitely been loving them!
We have a large breed dog, so I was also excited to check out the Canine Joint Care. It’s recommended that we use supplements to support her joints especially as she gets older. They are small, bone-shaped chewable tablets. They are Beef Liver Flavor, and our pup loves them. For dogs over 66lbs they recommend 3 tablets twice a day to help relieve pain. Because we are using it more for maintenance, we have been using the maintenance dose, which is 3 tablets once daily. She enjoys taking them, and I love that we can support her joints with natural ingredients.
Overall, I love what Lakota offers. The Roll-On Pain Relievers have been fantastic, I’m excited to keep taking the supplements, my husband is loving the Lakota PM and our pup loves her Canine Joint Care. I love that they use natural ingredients that target specific pain and problem areas.
