Horse Chestnut The active ingredients in horse chestnut appear to be a group of chemicals called saponins, of which aescinis is considered to be the most important. Aescin appears to reduce swelling and inflammation.
The "cement" between cells can be broken down by lysomal enzymes, which in turn leads to increased capillary permeability and edema (collection of fluids in tissue). Aescin has been shown in various pharmacological studies to inhibit these enzymes, shrinking the size and quantity or tiny pores in capillary walls that regulate the flow of fluids.
Menthol has a natural analgesic (pain reliever) attribute. As the gel is applied, molecules called ligands attach themselves to receptors in your cell triggering a change. The menthol ligand attaches to the kappa Opioid receptor, which produces a numbing effect.
When menthol is used on aching muscles, it triggers a process called vasodilation . Blood vessels in the area widen, increasing blood flow to the area and reducing the skin barrier function. As a result, other medicinal ingredients found in MyoFreeze® along with the menthol get to work faster while the increased blood flow itself bring nutrients necessary for cellular repair and carry away waste. Finally, one of the biggest culprits behind muscle aches and pains is inflammation. The Latin word for inflammation is inflammare which means "to set on fire." Menthol brings a wonderful cooling sensation by stimulating thermo receptors
in the skin cells which help your body recognise temperature changes. Your skin doesn't actually change temperature. Instead, menthol causes a signal to be sent which your brain interprets as cold, relieving the uncomfortable heat of inflammation.
Arnica works by stimulating the activity of white blood cells that perform much of the digestion of congested blood, and by dispersing trapped, disorganised fluids from bumped and bruised tissue, joints and muscles.
Arnica is known to stimulate blood circulation which flushes out inflammation and speeds healing to an area. It has anti-bacterial and anti- inflammatory qualities that can reduce pain, swelling, and improve the potential of quicker healing.
