Rub On Relief is a topical pain relief cream sold by Living Well Nutraceuticals.
The main selling point of this all-natural pain relief cream is that it is made of homeopathic remedies.
There are 8 homeopathic remedies included in Rub On Relief. It also contains MSM and cetyl myristoleate.
Rub On Relief provides quick pain relief and it is recommended for treating all kinds of body pains including back pain, shoulder pain, joint pain, knee pain and neck pain. It is therefore, effective for treating arthritis as well as sprains, strains and sore muscles.
Unlike some other pain-relieving creams, Rub On Relief does not stink, sting or burn. In fact, it soothes the inflamed areas of the skin and leaves the skin cool.
Rub On Relief does not contain NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) which are the most common ingredients in conventional pain relief creams and ointments. It also does not contain any artificial colors, preservatives or parabens that may irritate the skin. And it contains no paraffin, petrolatum, toluene or mineral oils which can leave residues on the skin.
Besides its active ingredients, Rub On Relief actually contains other supportive compounds that can nourish the skin and promote its health.
It contains vitamin E which is a potent antioxidant for the skin and which can help remove harmful free radicals that may damage the skin. Safflower seed oil is another great source of vitamin E that is included in Rub On Relief.
The included lactoperoxidases can also help remove the reactive oxygen species released by the harmful bacteria living on the skin.
Also present in this pain relief cream are phospholipids which can help rebuild the skin and bring out its sheen.
The unique formulation of Run On Relief combines the effects of the homeopathic remedies to produce a fast and long-lasting pain relief which comes with little to no side effects.
CMO or Cetyl Myristoleate has a rather curious history.
It was discovered in the 1960s by Harry E. Diehl. This researcher found out that the naturally produced cetyl myristoleate in mice is responsible for their immunity to arthritis.
However, because there were restrictions on patenting a natural product, no big pharmaceutical company was willing to bring cetyl myristoleate to the market.
25 years later, Diehl himself developed arthritis in his hands, knees and heels. None of the conventional medicine prescribed for him was able to completely provide pain relief. So, the researcher turned to his old discovery and discovered that cetyl myristoleate was able to fully resolve his arthritis symptoms.
Subsequently, cetyl myristoleate came to the market in 1991 as a supplement.
Cetyl myristoleate is a cetyl ester of myristoleic acid. It is a waxy ester derived from natural sources. It is usually taken orally but it is now increasingly found in topical products because it is also highly resistant to oxidation and so has a long shelf-life.
Cetyl myristoleate has been studied and classified as an anti-inflammatory compound which can also relieve pain. Therefore, it is a safer alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It has also been shown to contribute to the regulation of the immune system.
All studies done on cetyl myristoleate have no reports of side effects.
It is not only safe and effective for long-term use but it is also now seen as an alternative to glucosamine and/or chondroitin in the treatment of arthritis, bursitis, fibromyalgia and sports injury.
Cetyl myristoleate is well absorbed through the skin when Rub On Relief cream is applied. It reduces the local swelling and pain experienced at aching joints and muscles by moisturizing, lubricating, cushioning and repairing the structural components of these body parts.
MSM is an organosulfur compound that is sold as dietary supplement.
Of all the therapeutic claims ascribed to MSM, studies have confirmed a few. However, its effectiveness in treating arthritis is one of the best understood medical uses of MSM.
MSM reduces pain and improves movement in limbs affected by arthritis and it may also reduce inflammation. MSM also supplies sulfur in the form needed for the regeneration of connective tissues such as ligaments and cartilages.
This compound is also essential for cellular metabolism. It is responsible for changing the permeability of cells to allow in more of the nutrients needed for growth and repair.
MSM is safe to use and no side effects have been reported for it.
Menthol is a waxy, clear or white organic compound obtained from mint oils. It is solid at room temperature but can easily melt when rubbed against any surface.
Menthol has been used for thousands of years for the same purposes we use it for today. It has a local analgesic property. It also has an anti-irritant property.
Menthol produces its classic cool effect on the skin by triggering cold-sensitive receptors without actually lowering the temperature. Therefore, it is a great remedy for cooling and soothing inflamed skin and relieving burning pains.
The ability of menthol to relieve pain is derived from its activation of kappa opioid receptors.
It also dilates the blood vessels underneath the skin when applied topically. Therefore, it can promote blood flow to help speed up the repair of damaged tissues.
Rhus toxicondendron is the homeopathic remedy prepared from poison ivy. It is a watered down solution of the oils in this plant.
Rhus tox is useful for treating musculoskeletal problems. It relieves muscle aches and joint pains.
Belladonna is prepared from the night shade plant. All parts of the plant are used. This homeopathic remedy is prepared by crushing the plant, steeping it in alcohol and then extensively diluting the solution.
The resulting solution has none of the toxicity of the plant.
However, it contains small amounts of alkaloids such as atropine. These alkaloids have anticholinergic properties in the very small doses in which they are present in Rub On Relief.
Therefore, belladonna relieves shooting pain especially sciatica and other nerve pains. It also reduces inflammation and muscle spasms. Therefore, it is useful for treating muscle aches.
Magnesium is an essential mineral in the body.
Besides being needed for a number of enzymatic reactions, magnesium is required for the formation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is the chief energy molecule in the body.
Magnesium is also required to overcome magnesium deficiency. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include weakness, fatigue and muscle cramps.
Therefore, magnesium is essential for restoring the energy level of the body but more specifically, it resolves muscle aches and painful muscle spasms.
Phosphorus is an essential mineral in the body. It is needed to form phosphates which are absolutely important to cellular growth and metabolism.
Phosphates form an important part of the DNA and other genetic materials. Phosphates are also just as important as calcium and magnesium for the mineralization of the bone.
Besides its contributions to phosphates, phosphorus can also inhibit the transmission of pain sensations to the nerves. Therefore, it is needed for relieving muscle aches and for preventing joint pains.
Ignatia is obtained from the seeds of St. Ignatius beans. This ancient remedy was first used for medicinal purposes on the Philippine Islands before entering the traditional medicine of Europe in the 17th century.
The main ingredient of ignatia is an alkaloid called strychnine.
Ignatia is used to treat pain due to emotional stress. It calms the nerves, relieves tension headaches and relaxes the muscles.
Lachesis is the watered down, non-poisonous solution of the venom of the bushmaster snake from South America.
Its main use is in increasing blood flow around the body. Therefore, this homeopathic remedy is included in Rub On Relief to help improve blood flow to the constricted vessels of the muscles and joints.
By improving blood circulation, lachesis can help clear off toxins and other inflammatory factors from these sites while increasing the flow of nutrient-rich blood to speed on the repair and recovery of the muscles and joints.
Naja is another watered down snake venom. It is obtained from cobra venom and it is the homeopathic remedy of choice for reducing migraine headaches and relieving painful nerves.
Rub On Relief is only available online. It is sold on the manufacturer’s website and its product page there is www.buy.rubonreliefcream.com. It can also be obtained from any of the manufacturer’s affiliates online.
There are always special ongoing promos for this product on the manufacturer’s website. Currently, shoppers on the website can get 1 Rub On Relief cream free for every 3 they buy or get 3 free for every 6 of the cream they buy.
Rub On Relief is simple to use.
Simply, squeeze out a dime-sized portion from the tube onto your fingers, and massage it on the part of your body where the pain is felt.
You should avoid using Rub On Cream on reddened areas of the skin without consulting your doctor since the discoloration may be signs of deeper problems beyond soreness or pain.
You should use Rub On Relief just before the time of the day or activity that makes your pain worse. Therefore, those who have sleepless nights battling arthritis pain should apply the cream just before bedtime.
If you experience muscle aches after exercising, then you should apply Rub On Relief following your workouts.
Rub On Relief cream is a powerhouse of natural pain relievers. Not only does it contain multiple effective painkillers but it has no reported side effects.
Many of its users report immediate pain relief following application. This relief also lasts a few hours.
The inclusion of both MSM and cetyl myristoleate in Rub On Relief is important. Both are little known but highly effective and safe remedies for arthritis. They also do more than relieve pain and reduce inflammation; they contribute to the regeneration of connective tissues.
MSM and cetyl myristoleate are the only 2 ingredients of Rub On Relief that treat the root cause of muscle and joint pain. The homeopathic remedies simply treat the symptoms.
By combining both approaches, Rub On Relief provides immediate relief for chronic pain while reducing the severity of the pain over time.
However, these active ingredients are only applied topically and there is a limit to the extent of absorption through the skin.
While the homeopathic remedies mostly provide local effects at the points where the cream is applied, MSM and cetyl myristoleate produce a broader spectrum of action and their effectiveness depends on their actions far from the site of application.
Therefore, the inclusion of MSM and cetyl myristoleate in Rub On Relief may produce much less benefits than what is outlined above. Since both MSM and cetyl myristoleate are available (even used preferably) orally, a topical formulation of these 2 essential ingredients may not be the best way to formulate them.
Furthermore, both MSM and cetyl myristoleate are listed with inactive ingredients on the label of Rub On Relief cream. This may be an acknowledgement of the smaller medicinal benefits provided by these 2 active agents when delivered topically.
However, the manufacturer’s site clearly singled out these 2 non-homeopathic remedies as major reasons to buy and use Rub On Relief.
Still, from the user testimonies gathered on the web, the majority of Rub On Relief users are happy with its results.
Rub On Relief cream definitely works as an effective pain relief cream. Its action is quick and it lasts for a few hours.
