Active ingredients are:

Devil’s Claw - this amazing desert plant has anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving and anti-rheumatic properties.  It was only introduced to Europe in the early 20th Century but has since become a very sought after remedy.  The prestigious scientifically convened Commission E (1), in Germany, has approved its use to treat degenerative joint problems.

Its traditional use is as an anti-inflammatory, specifically for joint inflammation.  Modern clinical trials have supported its effectiveness in this regard with benefits comparable to modern anti-inflammatory drugs.  The advantage of Devil’s Claw is its  effective without the negative side-effects (such as those associated with COX inhibiting drugs) and so does not upset the digestive system (9,10,11,12).  In fact, it is used traditionally to treat digestive tract problems! 

Rehmania - is a herb from the Chinese tradition that is now in common use worldwide.  It is anti-inflammatory and has been used to successfully treat rheumatoid arthritis.  Clinical trials prove that it reduces the pain of arthritis, bruises and sprains.

Willow - a plant well known to ancient healers for its ability to reduce pain and fever (2).  It was so effective that demand for it out-stripped supply in the 19th Century and resulted in its active constituent being synthesised in laboratories.  The result of this was Aspirin, a drug that has been extensively used ever since.  Willow has also been clinically proven to be anti-inflammatory, relieving the joint pains of arthritis (3).  In herbal medicine it is also used to treat connective tissue inflammation and rheumatic conditions (4).

Ginger - used for over 2000 years, modern studies are proving an impressive array of benefits for this culinary herb.  Unsurprisingly ginger is used in many traditional medicines for its soothing of digestive discomfort, stimulation of circulation, ability to relieve nausea, spasms and to reduce fevers (5,6,7,8).  It is also a known anti-inflammatory. Its combined action of improving blood flow (giving a sense of heat) and alleviation of inflammation make it an ideal herb for treating inflammation.  Ginger thus stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself.  Clinical studies have shown it reduces pain and swelling in joints and muscles (13,14,15).

Thyme Heal’s Anti-inflammatory Mix uses this combination of herbs to aid natural anti-inflammatory processes in the body, as well as supporting healing whilst giving pain relief.

Combines ideally with Thyme Heal’s Sports Rub
