Double Action Formula!
ArthArrest topical analgesic combines capsaicin with the vasodilator methyl nicotinate, together, this means greater arthritis pain relief, faster and longer lasting.
How it Works?
When applied topically, methylnicotinate dilates the capillaries at the affected area and relieves pain immediately through counterirritation, while capsaisin relieves pain through a cumulative effect. In other words, the more you use it, the better it works. Capsaicin (a derivative of hot peppers) appears to reduce the amount of a natural chemical known as substance P, which is present in painful joints. Substance P is believed to be involved in two processes central to arthritis: the release of enzymes that produce inflammation and the transmission of pain impulses from the joints to the central nervous system. By blocking the production and release of substance P, capsaicin can reduce the pain associated with arthritis as well as dampen the transmission of pain messages to the brain.
