FDA Approves Two All-Natural Pain RelieversIn the United States, 23% of all adults, or over 54 million people, suffer from joint discomfort of some kind.1 In their desperate search for relief, folks will try just about any treatment out there, including common over-the-counter methods of relief such as acetaminophen or NSAID. Others hope to find relief from topical ointments. But sadly, the bulk of these remedies lack an all-natural pain-relieving duo approved by the FDA. Natural Pain-Fighter #1: Histamine Dihydrochloride This powerhouse helps relieve aches and pains caused by arthritis, simple backaches, swelling, bruises, and muscle sprains. It is derived from histamine, a compound produced by your body. When absorbed into the skin, histamine dihydrochloride acts as a natural vasodilator that helps expand blood vessels to promote better blood flow. Circulation improves around the affected area, which, in turn, eases pain and inflammation.
Natural Pain-Fighter #2: CapsaicinCapsaicin is a compound found in peppers that gives them their “heating effect.”2 The compound is well-known for its pain-relieving properties and can be found in a variety of creams and gels. According to Arthritis.org2, studies have shown that capsaicin effectively reduces pain from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. In a 2010 German study, joint pain decreased nearly 50 percent after three weeks’ use of 0.05 percent capsaicin cream. How does this spicy compound help relieve pain? The magic behind capsaicin is its ability to activate nerve receptors. In a nutshell, it works by depleting levels of “Substance P” a neurotransmitter that sends pain messages to the brain. Capsaicin reduces the amount of “Substance P” at the location which it is applied. The result is pain relief delivered with a warming sensation.
How Most Topical Creams Fail…If you suffer from muscle and joint aches regularly, you probably have tried many treatments to alleviate your unrelenting pain. And, without a doubt, these two pain fighters can be found in a variety of topical treatments. But here’s the thing … until now, there hasn’t been a product that featured both of these hard-working compounds. Raging Kakapo is the only topical cream that combines histamine dihydrochloride and capsaicin for dramatic synergistic pain relief. What’s more, this product includes 50 percent more histamine dihydrochloride than the leading brand for extra-potent pain relief. Based on years of research, Raging Kakapo Pain Relief Cream is specially formulated to provide powerful relief for the millions of Americans who are troubled by daily pain. This odor-less, fast-absorbing cream also includes a variety of natural anti-inflammation compounds that deliver noticeable relief. Users report a mild warming heat-based sensation to the skin. However, individuals allergic to capsaicin should not use this product. Best results are achieved after 7-10 days of continuous use.
