Drug2Herb Herbal Sports and Arthritic pain formula.
Pain affects most Americans during their lives. Currently Western medicine offers us no solution for chronic long term pain from Sports injuries and arthritis. Diet, exercise and flexibility all play a role in dealing with pain and recovery but sometimes that isn’t enough. At times during a competitive season I didn’t have time to rest or to take medications that would make me sleep or have horrible side-effects. I needed relief and healing and this is how we came up with our formula for our athletes and arthritis suffers.
With the health risks of NSAIDS, the deaths of COX-2 inhibitors, and the side effects of OTC medication such as Tylenol; which was responsible for over 60,000 hospitalizations last year, many people are seeking safer options.
Herbs for Chronic Arthritic Pains
The CDC says arthritic pain is the leading cause of disability of almost 20 million Americans. Our herbal blend works from both an Eastern medical point of view and a Western point of view. Most of our herbs reduce swelling, inflammation, Interlukin-1 and TNF-1 reduction, nitric oxide production, 5-LOX and COX-2, and cAMP formations. All these factors produce our pain and slow our healing process. These chemical reactions lead to long term arthritis and, in my case, never allowed me to compete fully in my athletics. This formula also is also balanced so you will not experience abdominal pain that so commonly associated with Western NSAIDs. There are other factors that produce swelling and inflammation such as TNFalpha, IFN-gamma, IL-1beta, IL-2, IL-4, LTB(4), and NO; our herbal formula is combined and treats all these factors.
Impaired blood flow contributes to joint deterioration, weakness and pain. When inflammation is present, there is impaired blood flow and joint circulation thus advancing the arthritic stage. Many top doctors and researchers suggest now that improving blood flow is one important way to help fix arthritis and recovery in athletes.
Muscles and Collagen Synthesis
Pain and swelling restrict movement. As time goes on and people move less and less, the pain becomes more and more. The unused muscles become atrophic and more painful. Many herbs have been shown to relax and renew muscles and arthritic joints.
Why is our formula different?
Our formula was made by athletes and people that have suffered with pain! We didn’t want a singled minded approach. We wanted a comprehensive herbal blend that would address most if not all of the issues around our “pain”. NSAIDS only help with inflammation; COX-2 inhibitors only help with one aspect. MSM (glucosamine and chrondroitin) only help with one aspect of the pain known as collagen synthesis. Our formula will help with all these problems that are associated with your pain and recovery.
