How it works

HempSeedOil contains gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory. A 2011 study suggests that adding omega-3s, such as those found in hempoil, can reduce inflammation. [1]

Glucosamine is often used as a supplement to treat symptoms of various inflammatory conditions and has been shown to inhibit the activation of inflammatory pathways in human synovial cells. These cells are responsible for producing synovial fluid components, or joint fluid. [2]

Peppermint oil produces a cooling sensation when applied to the skin to help reduce the heat caused by inflamed muscles.

High-strength Manuka honey – made by bees collecting nectar from New Zealand Manuka bushes – contains the active ingredient methylglyoxal (MGO), which has an antimicrobial [3] and also anti-bacterial effect on the body, according to a 2018 study by Ulster University. [4]

In a 2009 German and New Zealand study, researchers suggested honey could speed up the healing process because: [5]

  • honey stimulates the inflammatory response in the body, leading to the regeneration of skin cells and connective tissues

Pharmaceutical use of beeswax dates back to ancient Egypt: as reported by the Ebers Papyrus (1550 B.C.), beeswax was the main ingredient in many recipes for the preparation of ointments and creams used to help pull plugs, to treat burns and wounds and to soothe joint pain. [6]
