Comprehensive formula for relief from
Aches & Pain……..
The vitajoint cream is a trusted formula of Rosemary Oil, Camphor and Menthol which helps in alleviating temporary aches and pains.
The ability of rosemary essential oil to relieve pain has resulted in its extensive use in treating headaches, muscle pains, rheumatism, and even arthritis. It has anti-inflammatory qualities, which makes it very good for relieving the pain from sprains and joint aches.
When applied externally, camphor numbs the nerve endings. The nerve endings then no longer transmit the sensation of pain. Camphor is highly volatile and readily absorbed through the skin. It produces a cool sensation and acts as a mild local anesthetic. FDA has approved camphor for topical use as a pain reliever. It is a counter irritant.
Menthol has shown that topical application will increase cutaneous blood flow and increase the pain threshold (tolerance to pain). It also acts by “counter-irritant" mechanism.
The counter-irritant theory was based on the active ingredient actually "irritating" the skin to create a reaction that canceled out the pain signal before it reaches the brain. Essentially, this skin irritation would stimulate certain nerve fibers (larger-sized nerve fibers) that would send more information than the smaller-sized nerve fibers carrying the pain signals, essentially blocking the pain signal from reaching the brain. This is known as the gate-control theory and is a commonly held view forpain relief.
Vitajoint Cream is available in pharmacies and health food stores.
