Topical Glucosamine Provides Effective Osteoarthritis Management
March 03, 2013
The use of liquid Glucosamine supplements has been shown to effectively manage Osteoarthritis symptoms, but sometimes you have an ache that comes on suddenly. Is there a fast acting agent that can be used for instant relief?
For those of us who need pain relief now, there are topical Glucosamine formulas that penetrate the skin to deliver temporary, fast and powerful pain relief for sore muscles and joints.
A clinical study published in the Journal of Rheumatology shows that there are benefits from using topical Glucosamine. The study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, testing the efficiency of topical Glucosamine creams for Osteoarthritis of the knee. The study revealed that the participants who used the topical Glucosamine agent experienced knee pain relief, whereas those who used the placebo topical agent did not.
When you are seeking immediate relief from nagging, persistent pain, you benefit from getting the medication as close to the affected area as possible, without it having to diffuse throughout your entire body first. A product with the appropriate amount of synergistic ingredients can provide nearly instantaneous relief for those of you who are suffering from a sudden flare-up. You should look for a Glucosamine topical formula that includes:
Glucosamine HCL: Glucosamine HCL is a 99% pure ingredient that enhances the ability of the body to manufacture collagen and proteoglycans. This is essential for rebuilding the joints and manufacturing synovial fluid, which lubricates the joints.
Glucosamine MSM: A major detoxifier of the body that allows fluids to enter into the cell membranes, and toxins to exit. It is a transporter of nutrients.
Camphor: Camphor is a counter- irritant, anesthetic and antiseptic property. When used topically, camphor stimulates nerve endings, increases blood flow, reduces pain, and decreases swelling.
Menthol: Menthol is a stimulant that acts as a cooling agent. It causes the skin to feel cold, then warm. These sensations distract you from your aches and pains.
