A blend of moistening and soothing solomon’s seal, numbing and relaxing kava, arnica for inflammation and trau, and stress releasing goldenrod oils for strains, sprains, or any body soreness or imbalance.
Animal models of collagen-induced arthritis show Arnica to protect against joint deformation associated with a decrease in nitric oxide, TNF-a, and IL-1ß, IL-6, and IL-12. Arnica application is also noted to decrease anti-type II collagen antibodies and improve antioxidant status in the underlying tissues. One human investigation compared Arnica and ibuprofen for pain relief in patients with osteoarthritis of the hands and reported equal efficacy. (1)
