Arnicare Gel is a Natural Pain Reliever for Athletes
Athletes and fitness buffs concerned with the ingredients in over-the-counter topical sports pain relievers can rely on Boiron’s unscented Arnicare Gel for natural relief of their muscle pain and stiffness.
Arnicare Gel does not contain methyl salicylate or camphor, common ingredients found in many sports creams, which can be toxic in large doses. The active ingredient in Boiron’s homeopathic gel is Arnica montana, a mountain daisy, a perennial plant commonly found in central Europe and the northwestern United States. Arnica has been used for centuries as a natural pain reliever. Today, doctors and pharmacists worldwide recommend Arnica.
“As with all topical medicines, you have to review the drug facts on the packaging and take caution not to apply too frequently or too extensively on areas of the body,” says Christophe Merville, D. Pharm. “Applying a thin layer of Boiron Arnicare Gel on the affected area three times a day is enough to provide adequate relief of muscle aches, stiffness, and bruising. If you seek relief from general aches or pains all over your body, then I would recommend taking Arnica in pellet form for a systemic effect.”
Arnicare Gel is manufactured according to the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) and drug Good Manufacturing Practices.
