Use Arnica Externally

Arnica Montana is a herb native to Europe. It has been used in healthcare for many years.

I have found Arnica gel very effective for soothing my sore calf muscles after a long run, and is probably familiar to many people for its use in bruising. However, did you know it has many other uses?

Atrogel® Arnica Gel is a traditional herbal medicinal product used for the symptomatic relief of muscular aches and pains and stiffness, sprains and brusing, exclusively based upon long-standing use as a traditional remedy.

Use Devils Claw Internally

Devils Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens) can only grow in the Kalahari Desert. The Tubers tubers are used in healthcare.

One of the best remedies I have found is Atrosan® and we get great feedback in the shop.

Atrosan® Devil’s Claw tablets – a traditional herbal medicinal products used for the relief of backache, rheumatic or muscular pain and other general aches and pains in muscles and joints, exclusively based upon long-standing use as a traditional remedy.
