Another key active ingredient, Methyl-sulfonyl-methane (MSM), is an exceptional transdermal on its own. MSM supplies affected areas with a bio-available form of sulfur. Our bodies use sulfur to aid in tissue pliability, encourage the repair of damaged skin, and assist in the synthesis of collagen and maintenance of healthy joints. MSM is a natural and effective solution for many types of pain and inflammatory conditions.
Menthol and Camphor are used for their cooling effects. These two ingredients also work together to stimulate circulation, detoxify skin tissue, and reduce sensitivity. Menthol has analgesic properties thereby reducing the sensation of pain. Camphor Oil has also been shown to help ease inflammation by acting as a counterirritant and numbing the peripheral sensory nerves. It is easily absorbed when applied topically, making it a particularly effective treatment for arthritic joint pain. Menthol and Camphor together have been shown in studies to treat pain in muscles and joints due to arthritis, backache, strains, or sprains.
Turmeric has become a very popular in North America over the past few years, and has been used in India for centuries as a spice and medicinal herb. Nutravite Joint Cream combines Turmeric in a botanical blend with Frankincense and Devil’s Claw. This blend of three medicinal herbs is added to the formula because each of them are well known to relieve arthritis inflammation.
The combination of all seven active ingredients with the penetrating emollients results in an easily absorbed topical cream for targeted pain relief. It has a mild and pleasant mint odour, and does not run or cause a mess when applied. Nutravite Joint Cream is paraben free and approved by Health Canada to temporarily relieve pain due to osteoarthritis.
