Musculoskeletal Injury Formula: A Natural Pain Reliever and Tissue Healer

Inflammation, stiffness, soreness, aches and pains are all a part of overusing and overexerting your body. Musculoskeletal Injury (MSI) formula is your natural answer to these symptoms, so you don’t have to reach for other pain relievers that have potentially dangerous side effects.

It’s made with a comprehensive list of the best natural pain relieving botanical medicines, along with several enzymes to help repair damaged or overworked tissues.

Best Uses for MSI formula

  • Use in place of over-the-counter drugs like ibuprofen and aspirin
  • Aches and pains
  • Post-workout soreness
  • After a race for recovery
  • Inflammation in muscle or joints
  • For any type of injury

Here’s How Musculoskeletal Injury Formula Works:

Natural Pain Reliever White Willow Bark has a long history of use as a pain and inflammation reliever. It contains salicin, which is a precursor to modern-day aspirin.  White willow bark also targets the COX-1 and COX-2 enzyme systems and works as an analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer).

Curcumin/Turmeric (Meriva®) - the best absorbed form of turmeric available, Meriva has powerful anti-inflammatory activity that targets and inhibits the notorious cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) system, as well as the pro-inflammatory prostaglandins and leukotrienes. Meriva is 20 times better absorbed than standard turmeric extracts available.

Boswellia (Indian Frankincense) is an eastern Indian botanical with thousands of years of use as an anti-inflammatory.

Valerian Root is best known as a relaxing herb, but it also contains chemicals (valerenic acids) which have good anti-pain and anti-inflammatory effects. Its sleep-enhancing effects also won’t hurt to provide a relaxing night of sleep while you’re in pain.

Devil’s Claw also inhibits COX-2 as well as another pro-inflammatory chemical (nitric oxide synthetase). It also stimulates the release of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF) which is also an anti-anti-inflammatory chemical.

Black Cohosh is a Native American herb most popularly known for its ability to restore imbalanced hormones. However, it also has pain-relieving effects that are most specific in the joints.

Wild Yam is similar to Black Cohosh in that it has antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory effects that primarily target the joints.

Bromelain, Protease and Serrapeptase are enzymes with powerful anti-inflammatory effects that can limit the body’s creation of pain-inducing chemicals, as well as speeding up tissue repair. Enzyme assist in the ‘clean up’ process during which the immune system directs the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues.

Minerals  - Calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and potassium are included in this formula as each one plays a vital role in tissue repair and regeneration. Each mineral is provided in its most bioavailable forms for maximum absorption and use.

B vitamins (B3 Niacinamide & B6 Pyridoxine) serve as cofactors in the repair process, and also help escort minerals into the cell where they’re needed most.  B3 improves joint mobility while B6 pulls magnesium inside of cells where it supports relaxation.

Ibuprofen is probably the most popular over-the-counter pain reliever that athletes go for.  Ibuprofen is hard on the liver, kidneys and especially the stomach lining, where it can cause bleeding and may even contribute to the development of leaky gut syndrome.  

Using a natural pain reliever like MSI formula comes without these side effects, so you can heal your body without causing problems elsewhere.
