The Arthrizen Relief formulation is composed of five herbal extracts (Juniper, Goldenrod, Dandelion, Meadowsweet, And Willow Bark) balanced for ideal synergistic action and then conjugated to naturally-occurring fruit extracts to form RZN Nutraceutical’s patent-pending delivery system. The conjugated complexes act as carriers for the pain-fighting herbal compounds. When consumed, the fruit extract component of the herbal-sugar complex acts as a “shield?for the herbal component.
The Arthri-Zen Relief Proprietary Herbal Extract Blend in Arthri-zen Relife Cream have been used for many thousands of years in cultures around the world and contain compounds that have been determined to fight these uncomfortable sensations.
Compounds in Juniper block production of slow fiber (C-fiber) (+) neurotransmitters (NT’s) and possibly increase the presence of inhibitory (-) NT’s, thus reducing chronic pain signals to the brain. Some of these same compounds (sesquiterpene lactones among them) may reduce the migration of Substance P, a pain signal enhancer, from the dorsal horn of the spinal column to the peripheral nerve fibers.
Polyterpenoid compounds reduce production of prostacyclin synthetase, the enzyme needed to produce prostacyclin, one of the most aggressive of all prostaglandins, and platelet activation factor (PAF), an inflammatory compound. Prostacyclin hypersensitizes peripheral pain receptors. Thus, by reducing prostacyclin levels in the tissues pain receptors are desensitized.
Volatile oil components (4-terpineols) act as mild nephritic tissue irritants and thus increase glomerular filtration rate in the kidneys, creating a mild diuretic action.
Inflammation and pain are therefore reduced by interfering with the action of what’s there, blocking production of more, and helping the body get rid of the rest through increased diuresis.
Goldenrod is an aquaretic, increasing renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate without stimulating the loss of electrolytes such as sodium and chloride. Aquaretics are considered safer than many synthetic diuretics that promote the loss of electrolytes. This effect adds to the diuretic action of Juniper.
Goldenrod has strong anti-inflammatory activity, attributed to flavonoids such as rutin, quercitrin, isoquercitrin, astragalin, and nicotiflorin.
Dandelion's diuretic action is probably the result of sesquiterpene lactones. The leaves are a rich source of potassium, which may make it the only naturally occurring potassium-sparing diuretic, although its diuretic action is likely different from that of pharmaceuticals. At very high doses, the leaves have been shown to possess diuretic effects comparable to the prescription diuretic frusemide (Lasix).
Anti-edemic effects are the result of many phytochemicals, among them beta-amyrin and caffeic acid.
Dandelion is also a rich source of vitamins and minerals. The leaves have a very high content of vitamin A as well as moderate amounts of vitamin D, vitamin C, various B vitamins, iron, silicon, magnesium, zinc, and manganese
Meadowsweet was one of the three most sacred plants used by Celtic Druids. The analgesic substance salicin was first isolated from Meadowsweet in 1827. Salicylic acid was first synthesized in 1859 and provided the basis for the commercial synthesis of acetyl salicylic acid, commonly known as aspirin. The word aspirin owes its origin to the original genus name of Meadowsweet, Spiraea, having been coined from “a?(for acetyl, a chemical group) and “spirin?(from Spiraea).
The presence of aspirin-like chemicals explains Meadowsweet's action in reducing fever and relieving the pain of rheumatism in muscles and joints. Herbalists have long held that natural aspirin-like compounds acting together have a gentler, more long-lasting pharmacological effect than the synthetic aspirin.
Meadowsweet also contains many of the anti-inflammatory phytochemicals noted in connection with other herbs above.
Willow, like meadowsweet, is a source of natural aspirin-like compounds collectively known as salicins.
