Information on the ingredients and how they work.
Cetylated Fatty Acids (CFAs) are naturally occurring compounds that have been esterified to make them resistant to bonding with oxygen. These oils have been shown to reduce inflammation and pain without side effects.
In multiple tests performed at universities studying CFAs, participants demonstrated significant increases in mobility and decreases in pain and inflammation. These results are generally attributed to CFAs’ ability to reinforce and lubricate cell membranes. In fact, CFAs show cumulative therapeutic affects over time.
In a double blind study at the University of Connecticut, all of the osteoarthritic participants using CFAs showed clear improvement within the first 30 minutes following treatment.
After 30 days of continued treatments, participants demonstrated even greater cumulative effects in reduced pain, range of motion, stair climbing, and getting up and going forward from a chair.
CFAs are one of the key components that allow MYONATURAL users to return to active living quickly!
An extract from the more commonly known poison ivy, Rhus Toxicodendron is used after the initial symptoms of an injury have improved and for pain during the initial injury that subsides with more movement. It is especially effective for lifting or overexertion injuries and also serves as a treatment in chronic or acute rheumatic or arthritic conditions as well as sharp or aching pains in the bones.
Bryonia Alba is a vine like plant native to the woods and hedges of Europe. Among its diverse properties is its use on extreme pain. It is especially effective on pain that is tearing, bursting, splitting, heavy, or needle-like – those pains commonly related to motion. It’s also used as a homeopathic anti-inflammatory, reported to exceed the benefits of non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs).
Bryonia Alba has been used to treat back and neck pain such as painful stiffness, needle-like aches and pains in the lumbar region aggravated by walking, turning and stooping, sciatica alleviated by lying quietly, especially on the painful side, and bursitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis, fracture, and joint dislocation.
Garlic is an anticoagulant – a natural blood thinner. Recent research has shown garlic to improve blood flow. Deodorized garlic oil and safflower oil, both of which have clearly demonstrated anti-inflammatory benefits, are enhanced when they are bonded together and combined with the other nutrients.
The family of vitamin E compounds are well known for their antioxidant attributes. Antioxidants protect cell structures by neutralizing free radicals. These unstable free radical molecules from air pollution, radiation, peroxides, and similar sources cause damage throughout the body’s several systems and ultimately lead to many diseases. Antioxidants like vitamin E work to stabilize cell membranes and protect them from free radicals.
Many pain creams, sports rubs, or other natural pain relievers rely on high doses of menthol to shock the tissues, creating momentary relief without lasting effect. MYONATURAL™ is different.
It includes a minimal amount of menthol (1.25%) to help with initial skin penetration. In such small amounts, the menthol scent quickly dissipates as the other ingredients begin rebuilding tissue for long-lasting recovery.
