Absolüt Arnica Gel provides quick topical relief for bumps, bruises, muscular aches, sprains and swelling caused by sports injuries. Made from freshly harvested, organically grown, handpicked Arnica flower heads, its powerful anti-inflammatory action is strong enough to soothe even arthritic pain. It also protects cartilage from being damaged by chronic inflammation.
The Absolüt Arnica advantage
The application of a gel rather than a cream ensures that the Arnica penetrates directly into the skin rather than sitting on top. The result is a very swift reduction in symptoms, usually within 10-20 minutes of the first application. What’s more, it is odor free and its effectiveness does not wear off after a few weeks of use, but will continue to provide relief for as long as needed.
The Clinical Evidence
For arthritis sufferers, cartilage damage translates into pain. Studies show that Absolüt Arnica blocks the overproduction of inflammatory substances, including the enzyme collagenase, which destroys cartilage.(1) A comparative study also showed that Absolüt Arnica gel is as effective as Ibuprofen gel to relieve pain.(2)
Absolüt Arnica Gel has no contraindications with any other medication or supplements. It can be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding as well as on children 2 and up.
