Arthritis produces mild to intense amount of pain whenever your joints develop swelling and stiffness. When the arthritis has reached a certain level of severity, it is impossible to walk without support since your joints cannot take on the weight of your entire body. Inflammation, injury, infections and abnormal functions of the immune system are additional causes of pain and stiffness in the joint.
DEEP PENETRATING PAIN RELIEF FORMULA
Nature Fit Arthritis therapy cream, owing to its key ingredients, menthol and camphor oil, is an effective way of treating arthritis, joint and muscle pains.
Menthol is a natural ingredient in topical creams and gels known for its cooling and antibacterial properties. Also, menthol is one of the best and most effective pain relievers for arthritis patients.
It’s used in Arthritis therapy cream to assist its permeation through the surface of the skin. It replaces the pain message with a cooling sensation in order to provide temporary relief from localized pain. When applied to the skin, menthol stimulates the nerves for the perception of cold, while depressing those which perceive pain. The preliminary feeling of coolness is soon followed by a sensation of warmth.
Camphor oil was traditionally massaged into sprains and sore muscles and joints for pain relief. Camphor has been shown to help ease inflammation by acting as a counterirritant and numbing and peripheral sensory nerves. It also warms the skin and is easily absorbed when applied topically, making it a particularly effective treatment for arthritic and rheumatic joint pain.
Camphor oil has duel action of hot and cold. When first applied camphor oil numbs and cools the peripheral nerve endings, then warms the painful area as it stimulates circulation to cold, stiff muscles and limbs. This analgesic effect of camphor makes it a favorite oil to be used in pain relieving massage blends for sore muscles, low back pain, and arthritic pain.
With its anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial properties Camphor oil is a very useful and popular remedy for colds, flu, and bronchitis. Therefore, Arthritis therapy cream can be used as a balm. Applying it on the chest, throat and nose helps to dissolve the mucus congesting the nose and lungs.
