MSM: MSM stands for Methylsulphonyl Methane, a naturally-occurring source of sulphur.
Rosehip: Rosehip is the fruit of the rose plant.
Nettle leaf: Stinging nettle is a plant in the genus Urtica that originated as a native shrub in colder regions of Europe and Asia and is now found worldwide. It gets its name from the fine hairs on its leaves and stems that release irritating chemicals when they contact your skin.
Turmeric and curcumin: Curcumin is the yellow pigment associated with turmeric, and to a lesser extent ginger.
Ginger root: Ginger, aka Zingiber officinale, is a rhizome - a thick underground stem that sprouts roots and shoots. This "hot" spice is native to warmer parts of Asia, such as China, Japan, and India, but is now also grown in parts of South American and Africa.
