You’ve suffered from occasional soreness, stiffness and pain, but when these symptoms become a part of everyday life and keep you from your favorite activities, you need relief fast. Whether you've overdone new exercise regimen or you suffer from pain due to chronic inflammation, such as arthritis, Anti-Flamme can help you.
Other topical analgesics such as Icy Hot aren’t for everyone; they can cause stinging and burning, and
arnica montana, hypericum perforatum, calendula officinalis and peppermint.
Let's break down these ingredients to learn more about how Anti-Flamme works to soothe and relax sore or strained muscles and aching joints.
Arnica montana has a long history of medicinal use across Siberia, Europe and in the temperate climates of North America. This is where the flowering herb readily grows, and when applied to bruising or sore muscles, the analgesic effects are quick and powerful. That's because arnica contains chemicals that are known to naturally decrease pain and reduce swelling associated with a variety of conditions from arthritis to overuse. In addition, arnica has antibiotic properties, which means this herb is also effective in treating cuts, sores or insect bites.
You've likely heard hypericum perforatum called by its common name: St. John's wort. Like arnica, St. John's also has a long history in alternative medicine, both for internal and external applications. Externally, its topical preparations have been used for millennia to treat everything from cuts and burns to muscle pain. St. John's wort has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
Calendula officinalis, the calendula flower, helps to decrease swelling and regrow new tissue after a wound's been inflicted but as trouble healing. Calendula extracts on their own have been used in a wide range of scenarios, from the treatment of menstrual cramps to use as an insect repellent. Their chemical properties have applications in sports medicine as they help to prevent muscle spasms, reduce pain and swelling and more.
Peppermint oil is a natural analgesic with anti-inflammatory properties to help alleviate joint pain and stiffness. This natural ingredient can soothe muscle cramps, pain, spasms and tightness.
Using Anti-Flamme in conjunction with trigger point massage and stretching helps to alleviate pain, rightness, stiffness and general soreness quickly and effectively;
Anti-Flamme smells like relaxing peppermint, not like medicine. Use it to treat sports- or exercise-related injuries, joint pain, bruising, aching, tightness, knots and more.
