Q: What are the main ingredients in ActaFlex4X, and why are they important?
A: ActaFlex4X combines the cooling power of menthol with specialized lipids to soothe your pain. Here’s a closer look at the pain-blasting ingredients:
Pain-blasting ingredient #1: Cetylated Fatty Acid Complex (cetyl oleate, cetylated laurate, cetylated palmitate, cetyl myristoleate, cetyl myristate)
This clinically studied and patented fatty acid complex includes natural fatty acids that fight your pain.
These function much like the essential fatty acids (EFA) found in fish oil, but with stronger and longer-lasting effects. These Cetylated Fatty Acid Complex oils restore cell function in the joints and muscles to help them work optimally. They also act as a cellular lubricant (think WD-40 for the body) to help eliminate painful bone-on-bone grinding.
In particular, cetyl myristoleate has been hailed as a “super nutrient” that blasts arthritis pain. It was discovered some 50 years ago by Harry W. Diehl, Ph.D., a research chemist at the prestigious National Institutes of Health (NIH). In the course of his research, Diehl discovered that it was impossible to induce arthritis in a certain strand of Swiss Albino Mice. After months of study, he found that cetyl myristoleate was essentially “immunizing” the mice from arthritis! Imagine, then, what it can do for you!
Pain-blasting ingredient #2: Menthol
Menthol is a powerful “counterirritant” that produces a cooling sensation upon contact. It’s a natural, analgesic pain reliever that creates a numbing effect on the area where it’s applied. It also triggers vasodilation. By widening your blood vessels, it increases the blood flow in your body. This speeds up your circulation so that pain-relieving nutrients can get to the most affected areas. ActaFlex4X includes menthol in a 1.25-percent concentration, the amount shown to relieve arthritis pain.
But, wait, there’s more:
ActaFlex4X also combines two powerful pain-fighting oils to naturally soothe and relieve your pain. One is olive oil, a fruit extract with similar anti-inflammatory properties to ibuprofen. Even better, it is clinically proven to help “turn down” pain genes. The other is peppermint oil, with natural anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-spasmodic properties.
