Behind the Formula

Herbsmith™ Comfort Aches™ is a blend of blood-moving herbs. From a traditional Chinese standpoint, normal, everyday activity and exercise can lead to acute stasis or stagnation of blood. With time, this stagnation affects the flow of energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”), to the affected area.

Herbsmith™ Comfort Aches™ is designed to move the blood and energy in the affected area. Without the stagnation of blood, the discomfort diminishes, returning the dog to full function as quickly as possible.
