Intense Relief Rub vs. IcyHot

 

It’s been a long day at work and you finally get home and realize your body is feeling achy and tight. Maybe you just recently worked out a little too hard or pushed your body to reach a personal best and now you’re feeling it. What should you reach for? What is in your medicine cabinet that can help you ? Ibprofren? Nope. IcyHot. Nope, try again. What is something that has natural ingredients and can help you? CBD, of course.  CBD comes in many forms and thankfully a topical relief rub is a great option for your achy body.

Do you know what it means when your body feels sore? Prostaglandins are what cause pain and inflammation. Our bodies release prostaglandins as a response to being overworked or having an injury. Often times, this is when people will use over the counter medications like Ibprofren for pain relief as it blocks the prostaglandins. But like with all medications, Ibprofren can have side effects most users would like to avoid. Some may even grab that IcyHot for that quick cold and hot sensation to aide the aches and pains for just a moment.

According to the label, the active ingredients in IcyHot are Menthol (10 %), Methyl Salicylate (30 %). Purpose: Topical Analgesic, Topical Analgesic. Inactive Ingredients: Carbomer, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Esters, Oleth-3 Phosphate, Polysorbate 60, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine and Water (IcyHot). Off the top of your head, do you even know what those ingredients are? Are they safe? Natural? It only takes twenty-six seconds for those ingredients to enter our bloodstream once applied. Twenty-six seconds. That is faster than being able to pronounce all of the ingredients on that list. Doesn’t sound like that is the best choice anymore huh?
