Description: Artic Gel is the first refreshing and anti-fatigue gel exploiting the combined effects of the most powerful and well-known phytotherapy anti-inflammatory extracts (St. John’s wort, horse chestnut and Arnica montana), thus achieving unique results on tendons and limbs.
When to use Artic Gel: Artic Gel is a multipurpose refreshing gel. If used as an anti-fatigue gel during competitions or after work, it exerts a healing effect on the skin and a relaxing effect on tendons. Menthol's refreshing action inhibits the typical after-work limb swelling. Moreover, Artic Gel is perfect to counteract the appearance of windgalls.
Properties of its constituents: Artic Gel contains horse chestnut, St. John’s wort and arnica phytotherapy extracts, which are well-known in the scientific phytotherapy literature for their anti-inflammatory and local analgesic properties. In men, local application of Arnica montana extracts has proven to reduce hematomas and edemas caused by compressive and/or distortion traumas (41, 56), while horse chestnut seed extract titrated in aescin can limit exuding phenomena. Moreover, it is scientifically proven that horse chestnut increases capillary resistance, stimulates lymphatic drainage and exerts an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Finally, it improves interstitial liquids' antiedematous action and stasis by having an effect on local electrolytic turnover (78).
Use and dosage: Apply a small quantity (about 30 g per limb) of Artic Gel on joints and on the areas strained by intense training. Spread Artic Gel in circular movements to facilitate absorption. Artic Gel can be applied more than once a day.
This product does not cause any adverse reaction. Nevertheless, since every organism has its own peculiarities, it is suggested to test the product on a small area to evaluate its effect on the horse.
