ARTHRODEL gel re-establishes wellbeing in the joints: A natural, innovative gel that quickly penetrates joints. Multiple effects on pain, inflammation, stiffness, and sprains.
Active Ingredients: Hyaluronic acid, mannitol, vegetable elastin, Juniperus communis, Artemisia vulgaris, Malva sylvestris, Brassica rapa, Lavandula off., Mentha piperita, Glechoma hederacea, Salix alba.
Hyaluronic acid helps prevent loss of elastic viscosity of the synovial fluid, which is one of the causes of the pain of osteoarthritis. A joint lubricant, it combats the effects of mechanical and rheumatic wear and tear on the cartilage, and participates in chondrocyte synthesis. It is a chondroprotectant.
Mannitol is a powerful reducer of exogenous degradation due to oxidative stress on hyaluronic acid.
The innovative, synergetic combination of hyaluronic acid and mannitol provides pleasant flexibility and preserves the integrity and lifespan of joints.

Analgesic and Anti-Edemic Action, Articular and Peri-Articular Regeneration
Vegetable elastin and hyaluronic acid, substances necessary to cartilage and tendons, lubricate eroded rheumatic joints; supplement synovial fluid; protect cartilage; reinforce peri-articular structures, tendons, muscles, and ligaments; and are important to joint flexibility.
Calming, Anti-Inflammatory, and Regenerating Action
Juniper (Juniperus communis) (essential oil) is used for its anti-rheumatic and calming properties. Primarily effective on inflammation and joint and muscle pains from the back to the feet. It stimulates the synthesis of hydrolyzed collagen and regenerates cartilage, which causes a reduction in pain and improvement in mobility. It has an anti-inflammatory and anti-edematic effect due to its diterpenic acid, rutin, and isoquercetin content.
Juniperus communis fights pains in the neck, shoulders, back, quadriceps, knees, and wrists. It may be rubbed in lightly, as juniper oil has the ability to penetrate the cutaneous barrier. It is a diffusion factor for other active elements, which allows it to act on the very center of the inflammation.

Analgesic Effect on Joints and Muscles
Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) contains coumarins, stearols, and lactones (hydroxycoumarin). It blocks joint and muscle pains, and counteracts the synthesis of the cytokines responsible for inflammation due to its coumarin-like effects and the presence of numerous oligo elements, such as calcium, zinc, phosphorus, sulfur, and iodine.

Common mallow (Malva sylvestris) is characterised by its reparative effect. It is a leading plant in phytotherapy because of its mucilages (calming action) and its flavonoids, tannins, and anthocyanins (bone protection).
Anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, and antioxidant action.

Local Antiedemic Effect
Field mustard (Brassica rapa) relieves joint pain, with a toning effect on smooth muscles, bringing them energy, tone, and easier recovery processes. When applied locally to the large joints of the knees, wrists, and elbows that are swollen and painfully hot, its exciter effect of local drainage allows edematous liquids to escape intradermally, and eliminates acid crystals in situ.
It is a source of glucosinates and isorhamnetin, the most powerful of the antioxidants that specialise in the repair of oxidative stress caused by joint pains, whether traumatic or chronic in origin (arthrosis, arthritis).

Very rich in mineral salts: calcium, iron, copper, phosphoric acid, triphosphoric acid, and ADP.
ADP and triphosphoric acid are essential to muscle contraction.
ATP, ADP, and triphosphoric acid repair damaged muscles and optimise lactic and uric acid evacuation during athletic activity, all while preventing the loss of collagen in the joints, which is essential for joint function.

Soothing, Analgesic Effect
Lavender (Lavandula off.) (essential oil) acts on joint pain due to sprains, strains, contusions, and rheumatism. It contains soothing phenols and turpentines (linalool, geraniol, coumarin, ketones).
In an inflamed joint, it reduces blood pressure through local augmentation of the cortisol level.

Anti-Inflammatory Action, Increased Flexibility
Peppermint (Mentha piperita) treats inflammation in situ in inflamed joints, muscles, and tendons; it reduces intra-articular pressure due to edema, and allows greater joint flexibility.
1 g peppermint is more effective than 500 mg Ibuprofen.

Ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea)
Preliminary tests have demonstrated that ground ivy stimulates the activity of platelet adenylate cyclase. Fractioning has been performed, leading to the isolation of the substance responsible for this effect: a fatty acid called 9-hydroxyoctadecanoic acid (9-HODE). This demonstrates that ground ivy is a PgE1 and D2 receptor antagonist. Ground ivy has anti-inflammatory properties that are virtually identical to those found in NSAIDs.

Analgesic and Anti-Spasmodic Effect on Muscles
White willow (Salix alba) eases rheumatic pain and quickly puts arthralgia into a state of remission. It acts on the neck, shoulders, wrists, knees, and ankles. Dry white willow extract contains up to 20% salicylic acid (aspirin) without causing side effects.
It acts as an anti-spasmodic on muscles due to its salicylate content.
White willow inhibits the production of the prostaglandins in the hypothalamus that are responsible for joint inflammation.
