The specific function of each ingrediant is as follows:
Angelica pubescens (Du Huo) is a Chinese herb that is utilized to dispel wind and dampness. It indicated to relieve pains and body aches, especially in the back, joints, legs and feet. It can be used for both chronic and acute cases. One of its active ingredients, osthole, inhibits platelet aggregation and thromboxane formation, and has vasodilating properties; factors which help dissipate pain and reduce inflammation. Angelica also inhibits TNF alpha production, another contributor to inflammation.
Notopterygium Incisum (Qiang Huo) relieves wind, cold, and damp conditions with associated pains. Qiang Huo has pungent and bitter tastes and a warm property, acting on the urinary bladder and kidney channels. It has been used in the treatment of rheumatic arthralgia and aching of the back and shoulders. One of its main actives, notopterol, is indicated for its anti-inflammatory activity by its inhibitory effect on vascular permeability.
Rehmannia glutinosa (Shu Di Huang) inhibits TNF-1 by inhibiting interleukin-1 (IL-1) secretion and thereby minimizing cytokine cascades which induce cellular immune responses and activate macrophages that contribute to pain and inflammation. This herb also encourages repair of damaged tissue.
Gentiana macrophylla (Qin Jiao) strengthens the capillaries to prevent swelling. It removes damp heat and acts as an analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antirheumatic.
Piper Futokadsura contains the tetrahydrofuran lignans which inhibit nitric oxide (NO) production. Chronic expression of NO is associated with various carcinomas and inflammatory conditions. From a Chinese Medicine point of view, it controls wind-damp obstruction syndrome manifested as painful and stiff joints, tendon and muscle spasms, lower back pain, painful knees and pain from external injury.
MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is an effective anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. Its effect is attributed to its efficiency as a sulphur donor. Sulphur is required for the formation of the extracellular matrix integral to cartilage formation and restoration.
