Sore, aching muscles is a part of life and as we get older, those muscles ache more and more. I live with chronic upper back pain and most of the time it's manageable. Some days, however, I feel like I can't even get out of bed and on those days I don't know what I'd do without my Ibuprofen and muscle rub! I have used several different kinds of muscle rubs in the past but never had the opportunity to try out Arnicare muscle rub. Recently, Arnicare contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in trying some of it out for myself and I just couldn't pass it up!
What is Arnicare?
Arnicare is homeopathic medicine for muscle pain, bruising and swelling. If you're living a more natural lifestyle or if you're just interested in trying something new, Arnicare has just what you need to help relieve uncomfortable muscle pain. With springtime upon us, many of us are more likely to head back outside and start running and doing more strenuous exercising.
According to the information provided to me by the sponsor, "This season, and year round, relieve muscle pain, stiffness, swelling and bruising - instead of just masking it - and feel better faster with Arnicare Arnica Gel."
"Brought to you by Boirion, world leader in homeopathic medicines, Arnicare Gel, made from Arnica Montana, works naturally to ease muscle pain and stiffness due to minor injuries and overexertion. It also works to reduce swelling and discoloration of bruises. Arnica, a mountain plant from the daisy family, has been commonly used for centuries as a natural pain reliever and is recommended today by doctors, plastic surgeons and pharmacists - and used by professional athletes - worldwide."
"Since Arnicare works naturally with your body, there's no risk of overdose, no contraindications, no drug interactions, and no side effects when used as directed. This unscented, homeopathic gel is quickly absorbed by the skin, it's non-greasy and paraben-free, and it does not contain methyl salicylate or caphor - common ingredients in pain relief creams that can be toxic in large doses. This makes Arnicare safe for the whole family."
With Josh on his feet all day and my back hurting most of the time, we're always in the market for a good muscle cream or rub. I used Arnicare every night for a week and found it to work fairly well. I must admit it didn't seem to help as much as other pain relief creams I've tried in the past though. Josh, however, had a very enjoyable experience. He used the cream for a week as well and rubbed it on his legs, which is his most uncomfortable area. He was able to relax before bed, which is something that is very hard for him to do most of the time. He did mention that it didn't seem to last as long but the relief was very similar to other rubs or creams he's tried in the past.
Josh is a little more of a nature and health nut than I am so he was very excited about the fact that this is a homeopathic pain reliever. My mom even picked up a tube because she loves to try new homeopathic remedies. Overall I was fairly impressed with Arnicare and would recommend it to anyone looking for a homeopathic option when it comes to muscle pain and stiffness.
