I'm not sure if I have mentioned it on here but I this past summer I was diagnosed with gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) and possibly an ulcer on top of that (I know I had an ulcer, the doctor just didn't send me for an endoscopy). Because of this, I can not take any pain relievers that are NSAIDs like Advil, Aspirin etc. I'm left to take Tylenol and honestly I find most of the time it doesn't work anyway.
Being active causes aches and pains and Hyland's has created a few products to help you out with them. Remember, these are all homeopathic!
Info: provides topical relief for muscle soreness. It also soothes bruises and swelling caused by injuries or too much exertion. Arnica, a plant extract, provides natural relief for bruises, trauma, and inflammation and gives off a mild scent. Hyland’s Homeopathic Muscle Therapy Gel with Arnica is potent and safe. It provides natural relief from pain, is absorbent, and is non-greasy.
My Thoughts: I loved this stuff. It does work. I had a few runs that I was extremely sore or tight after and I would rub this stuff on and my muscles have felt like new. The smell is a little stinky but not as bad as other muscle rubs out there.
Hyland’s Arnica 30X offers 100% natural pain relief without the long list of side effects of conventional pain medications. The new pain relief formula speeds your recovery from injuries and trauma, getting you back in the game sooner! The tablets dissolve quickly in the mouth and treat a wide range of injuries, including joint & muscle soreness, bruising and swelling, stiffness, back ache, fatigue and inflammation. Arnica 30X is an ideal choice for every day pain or for an acute injury. You can take it before activity to minimize pain later!
My Thoughts: I never actually had to try this but I did give it to my daughter when she was having "growing pains" in her legs and it worked wonderfully. You put the tabs under their tongue and they dissolve really quickly. She was really excited by that!
Bioplasma Sport with Electrolytes
Hyland's Bioplasma Sport with Electrolytes is a sports recovery product in an "on-the-go" dosage form. The powder is developed to dissolve instantly on the tongue and enable more rapid absorption. Pouches are light weight, moisture resistant and allow for greater mobility. Easy to slip in the gym bag or put in your pocket when you head out for your workout.
My Thoughts: I love the mobility of this stuff! You don't even need a bottle of water to dissolve it into to take! It's lightly citrus flavor is nice too.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the Hyland's Products that were sent to me. They really did do what they said they would and I felt safe using them. I even felt they were were safe enough to give to my daughter!
