Dr Christopher Cayenne Ointment Description
When there is swelling and pain at the site of trauma it means that small blood vessels are damaged and there is tissue hypoxia as well as increased capillary permeability. During this deteriorating blood flow, tissues get worse nutrition and this may lead to problems with tissue regeneration and healing.
Dr. Christopher's Cayenne Heat Ointment is designed to help relieve pain, decrease tissue irritation, and reduce inflammation as well as improve microcirculation (blood flow), decrease swelling and bruising, and stimulate tissue regeneration and growth.
Cayenne Heat Ointment belongs to the category of warming remedies due to the presence of such ingredients as cayenne pepper, wintergreen, and menthol, which increase topical blood circulation (hyperemia) in tissues and increase blood flow. The ointment is very effective in the rehabilitation period, during the few hours or days after acute injury (depending on its severity).
As a remedy to keep things from happening, Dr. Christopher’s formula is recommended for use by people who are involved in intense sports activity, when the locomotor system undergoes prolonged and hard work, for example, during competition or training in the gym. Many athletes are well aware of how many muscles may be sore after a workout. To stop this from happening you need to not only have a good warm up, but to also rub Cayenne Heat Ointment into the muscles.
As with other ointments based on natural ingredients, Cayenne Heat Ointments may cause allergic reactions. To avoid any problems, make a skin test: apply the remedy on the small section of the skin.
Directions: Apply externally for temporary minor discomfort. Avoid contact to sensitive areas, especially the eyes & lips. Rub in thoroughly to avoid possible staining to clothing. Refrigerate after opening.
Ingredients: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cayenne Pepper 40,000 HU, Oil of Wintergreen, Menthol Crystals and other pure essential oils as fragrances, in a Beeswax base.
Warning: External use only.
