MANUFACTURER: HUMCO HOLDING GROUP. INDICATIONS: Humco Arnica Tincture in such topical formulations as creams, gels, and ointments is extremely popular in Europe (well-known products include Arnica Kneipp Gel and Vasotonin Gel. ) The herb's active ingredients also have mild pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial actions. One of arnica's primary components, helenalin, also has a strong anti-edemic (anti-swelling) effect. Given these qualities, it's little surprise that traditional healers recommend applying a cold compress soaked in tincture of arnica to reduce bruising. Humco Arnica Tincture Fro Muscle strains and sprains:
Arnica is widely applied to ease the inflammation and pain of muscle strains and sprains caused by overuse or injury. Although results have been contradictory, some studies concluded that for a short period immediately following a marathon run, arnica reduced muscle soreness. The effect was only temporary, however. Arthritic joints:
Inflamed and painful joints are said to benefit from arnica as well. Using the herb in a hot, moist compress may be helpful for arthritis pain, though it is not known whether it is simply the heat or the arnica that provides the relief. DIRECTIONS: See The Package For Details. Warning
