Q. I’ve had bursitis in my shoulders and hip for years. Then I tried Certo (from the canning section of the grocery) mixed with 64 oz of white grape juice. I take half a cup daily. The pain disappeared in just four days like a miracle. No pain meant my hip relaxed and my massage therapist was shocked. I am in awe.
A. Thanks for your report. Many people find that a packet of Certo plant pectin (sold to stiffen homemade jams) dissolved in a half-gallon of grape juice eases joint pain.

    I tried the powdered a few years ago – backed a ratio out using recipes – but did not think it was as effective. You can probably order a supply of the liquid packets on line.
    Must be white grape juice. There’s something in green grapes that is not in darker grapes.

    Do you have any information on powdered pectin? It is difficult to find Certo in liquid form. Does powdered work as well? Also – white grape juice or purple? I’m confused!

    A friend told me at work about it, took it and 3 days later I felt a big change in my knees, if you have not tried it give it a try worked for me.
