How it works
Pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory willow bark and boswellia
Oriental Botanicals Phytogesic combines willow bark with boswellia, both of which have pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.
Given its pain-relieving action, willow bark is traditionally taken to relieve symptoms of mild arthritis, mild joint pain, muscle aches, mild headaches as well as to reduce the occurrence of episodes of gout in Western herbal medicine.
The willow bark extract in Oriental Botanicals Phytogesic is standardised to contain 30mg per tablet of a compound called salicin, and the boswellia is standardised for its levels of beta-boswellic acids.
Fang feng: traditionally used to relieve pain in Chinese medicine
Fang feng is traditionally known for its pain-relieving properties in Chinese medicine, where it’s used for relief of mild joint pain and inflammation, mild rheumatic aches and pains, mild migraines and headaches.
Traditional Chinese medicine also considers fang feng to be an antispasmodic herb; it’s therefore traditionally taken to relieve mild muscle spasms.
Oriental Botanicals Phytogesic also includes eucommia stem bark, white atractylodes root, acanthopanax root bark, large-leaf gentian root and hairy angelica root.
