ARNICA ~ Arnica is traditionally used as an external herbal medicine for bruises. It is in fact approved by the German Commission E for topical use when applied for inflammation, bruises and joint pain. According to esteemed herbalist Michael Moore, the herb does not have an immediate effect but instead takes several hours to work in support of strains and bruises. Arnica flower should not be taken internally.
WHITE WILLOW BARK ~ White Willow Bark is most commonly known for its use in herbal medicine. A natural pain reliever, and anti-inflammatory, White Willow Bark owes its infamous properties to a component named Salicin. The use of White Willow Bark for medicinal purposes dates back to the time of Hippocrates, when he is noted to advise the chewing of White Willow Bark to reduce pain, inflammation, and fever. At that time, the active ingredient, Salicin, was discovered, and later synthetically reproduced, creating salicylic acid.
TURMERIC ~ In a previous study in the Journal of Pain Research, curcumin has demonstrated a potent pain-relieving effect, even greater than 500 mg of acetaminophen. This new study shows that not only is curcumin an effective pain-relieving natural remedy, it also helps prevent and heal muscle injuries and inflammation.
CAYENNE ~ An excellent remedy for natural joint pain relief as it is one of the anti inflammatory herbs.
DEVILS CLAW ROOT ~ Helps fight inflammation or relieve arthritis pain, headache, and neck and low back pain.
