"Where can I get another tube of MyoNatural?" a tennis friend asked me. I'd given him a sample of this cream when his arthritic knee kept him from playing tennis for several months. Now he was back in the game. So how does this new all-natural, toxin-free analgesic help painful joints? And why is it safer than other over-the-counter painkiller creams?
Today, 21 million North Americans suffer daily the agony of arthritis. Others see their quality of life diminished by sports injuries, backache, sore muscles and the ravages of aging joints.
Customary treatment has been the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Unfortunately, too many people take these over-the-counter medications thinking they're as safe as M and M candy. But every year 25,000 North Americans die from gastrointestinal complications due to this self-prescribed remedy. It's a huge a price to pay for pain relief. MyoNatural eliminates this problem. To my knowledge, no side effects have been reported by using this natural cream.
But how is MyoNatural different from other over-the-counter painkillers? Remember that, due to increasing drug complications, it's important to know what a medication does not contain.
Today there are 300 different topical analgesics available in North America. But 90 percent of these painkillers contain methyl salicylate. Excessive use of this substance over a period of time has been associated with serious health problems and in rare cases can be fatal. MyoNatural does not contain methyl salicylate and is the only all natural and toxin-free cream available.
MyoNatural consists of a combination of six anti-inflammatory ingredients proven to be effective in relieving a variety of painful conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
One of the main ingredients is cetylated fatty acids. These are naturally occurring compounds that help to reduce inflammation, pain and increase mobility. Another ingredient, Bryonia Alba, is a vine-like plant native to the woods of Europe. It's particularly effective for the pain associated with motion. It's also helpful in the treatment of neck, back pain and those suffering from fibromyalgia.
MyoNatural also has what's called a "Nano Delivery System". It's a process that quickly carries these six anti-inflammatory ingredients deep into affected muscles and joints where they're needed, providing relief in minutes.
But how good is MyoNatural in easing pain? Researchers at the University of Connecticut carried out double-blind studies to test its effectiveness. One group of patients, suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee, was treated with MyoNatural. A similar group received a placebo cream. But neither doctors nor patients were told which cream was the real McCoy.
Thirty minutes after applying the cream, patients were tested to see how their disability was affected. How far could they flex a knee before it became painful? How well could they get up from a chair? How much time did it take to go up and down 11 steps? And how good was their balance?
Patients were then advised to apply their creams twice a day for 30 days. Both groups of patients were also provided with nutritional guidance to ensure neither group gained weight during the trail period.
Researchers found that patients using MyoNatural noticed better function after 30 minutes. Further improvement occurred over ensuing 30 days. Patients could flex knees better, needed less time to navigate stairs and rise from a chair. They also showed improved balance, strength and physical endurance.
MyoNatural combats another vital problem. It's logical that if a knee joint hurts, there's a natural tendency not to move it. But ships develop barnacles if tied up to dock too long. And people suffering from painful joints slowly but surely lose muscle mass if they become less active. This can have a major effect on their way of life.
Several professional athletes who have access to the best treatments available say that MyoNatural keeps them on the playing field. It has also kept me at the trap shooting range as the gun's recoil often leaves me with a painful shoulder. And my tennis friend couldn't be happier. I'll surprise him with another tube at Christmas.
