Minor Pain Relief™
Herbal, Safe, Effective
Planetary Herbals is pleased to introduce Minor Pain Relief - a safe, effective herbal formula that soothes minor pain due to everyday activity, inhibits the inflammatory COX-2 enzyme, and strengthens tissues with antioxidants.
Willow Bark: Traditional Minor Pain Reliever
Minor Pain Relief features an age-old herbal remedy, willow bark, that has been used for centuries for natural minor pain relief. Modern clinical studies confirm that willow bark, which is neither habit-forming nor irritating to the stomach, remains as effective as ever for the relief of minor pain.
Hops and Ginger: COX-2 Inhibition
Minor Pain Relief also contains powerful COX-2 inhibitors from hops, the perennial flowering vine used worldwide in beer-making, as well as from ginger root. Humulex™ is a hops extract that is standardized for the alpha acids humulone, cohumulone and isohumulone, all of which have proved effective at inhibiting COX-2. COX-2 is associated with minor pain and inflammation from daily activities or overexertion. Ginger root lessens everyday minor pain and the cellular irritation that accompanies it by decreasing the production of prostaglandins generated by COX-2.
Corydalis: Beneficial Alkaloids
Another featured herb in the formula is corydalis, a member of the poppy family, which has been used successfully for over 2,000 years within the system of traditional Chinese herbalism to inhibit minor, everyday pain. Scientific tests have identified and named 20 active minor pain-killing alkaloids in corydalis.
Minor Pain Relief is the newest member of the Planetary Herbals line of herbs and botanical formulas. These products integrate the best of worldwide herbal traditions with modern clinical and pharmacological research.
