Penetrex was designed & is indicated as a topical application to address underlying inflammation of muscles, nerves, ligaments and tendons. The efficacy of the ingredients within Penetrex are enhanced by a topical system.
Penetrex Active Ingredients
Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6):
Two prominent physicians who have helped establish the importance of Vitamin B6 in treating Repetitive Strain Injuries include Morton Kasdan, M.D. (12-year study conducted in Louisville, Kentucky) and John Ellis, M.D. who has treated hundreds of patients with Vitamin B6 over the course of the last 26 years at his practice in Texas.
Most treatments involving pyridoxine are oral in nature and usually dispensed in large dosages. Penetrex uses smaller dosages that can be topically applied directly to the point of discomfort.
Approximately half of the total body sulfur is concentrated in the muscles, skin and bones. One of the most significant uses of MSM as a supplement is its demonstrated ability to relieve pain and inflammation. When rigid fibrous tissue cells swell and become inflamed, pressure and pain result.
Since MSM can restore flexibility and permeability to cell walls, fluids can pass through the tissues more easily. This helps equalize pressure and reduce or eliminate the cause of pain. Harmful substances such as lactic acid and toxins are allowed to flow out, while nutrients are permitted to flow in. This prevents the pressure buildup in cells that causes inflammation.
Dr. Diehl discovered that Swiss albino mice did not get arthritis after injection of Freund�s adjuvant. Eventually, he was able to determine that Cetyl Myristoleate was the factor present naturally in mice that was responsible for this protection. When CMO was injected into various strains of rats, it offered the same protection against arthritis.
It has been proposed that CMO acts as a joint "lubricant" and anti-inflammatory agent. Patents were granted to Dr. Diehl for the use of CMO in both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, based upon the animal studies and several case histories.
In a double-blind study, 106 people with various types of arthritis who had failed to respond to NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) received Cetyl Myristoleate (540 mg per day orally for 30 days), while 226 others received a placebo. These people also applied Cetyl Myristoleate or placebo topically, according to their perceived need. Some 63.5% of those receiving Cetyl Myristoleate improved, compared with only 14.5% of those receiving the placebo (a statistically significant difference).
Tennis Elbow patients exhibit damage to the radial nerve, one of the major nerves controlling muscles in the arm and hand. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome patients exhibit damage to the median nerve of the hand/wrist. Choline assists in the repair and strengthening of the sheaths, improving the conductivity and transmission of nerve impulses.
Arnica also contains thymol (an essential oil), flavonoids, inulin, carotenoids and tannins which stimulate blood circulation. Arnica works by stimulating the activity of white blood cells that perform much of the digestion of congested blood, and by dispersing trapped fluids from bruised tissue, joints and muscle. Arnica has also been shown to improve the health and conductivity of certain nerves.
Boswellia has attracted a lot of attention in the world medical community because it possesses anti-inflammatory action that is just as effective against most types of induced arthritis as most prescription medication, yet Boswellia does not have any of the side effects.
Boswellic acids (BA) are believed to suppress the proliferating tissue found in the inflamed areas and also prevents the breakdown of connective tissue. The mechanism is similar to the action of non-steroidal groups of anti-arthritic drugs with no side effects, gastric irritation and ulcerogenic activity. Studies have confirmed that Boswellia Serrata has potent anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic activity.
Boswellia was found to improve blood supply to the joints and restore integrity of vessels weakened by spasm. Boswellia Serrata may also be useful for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis with no side effects as those seen with traditional drugs of choice.
The unparalleled effectiveness of Penetrex rests not just in its proprietary formulation of ingredients but in its revolutionary delivery system as well. Penetrex incorporates the latest advancements in emulsification and skin penetration technology. It ensures effective absorption of the active ingredients mentioned above through the dermal lipid layers (outer skin) to the area of discomfort.
This technology was developed by the same Pharmaceutical Biochemist who developed Penetrex and only Penetrex has it. Below, is a brief description of the scientific principal behind the system as well as a summary of why topical applications offer unique advantages.
The system consists of an emulsion of hydrophyllic nature, and acidic pH, with three main active ingredients (Choline Bitartrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride / Vitamin B6, and Methylsulfonylmethane / MSM dissolved into the water phase of it, and one secondary active (Cetyl Myristoleate), dissolved into the oil phase.
One of the key ingredients present in this formulation is Ethoxydiglycol, which is an excellent carrier for active ingredients, since it has the unique characteristic of being both water-soluble and oil-soluble. Because of this dual functionality, it can drastically improve the absorption of active ingredients.
The Arnica Extract, the Camphor and the Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate complement this formulation with their calming and anti-inflammatory properties.
Through the use of topical/cutaneous formulations, patients reap the benefits of significantly higher concentrations of medicine at the injury site than can be obtained through oral administration. Topical formulations do not have to travel through the stomach & intestine, but can begin working immediately at the injury site.
In addition, because the medication is applied to only a small area of the body, very little drug is absorbed into the bloodstream to exert side effects. Many drugs that are used in the treatment of pain can cause unpleasant or dangerous side effects, and reducing these side effects through topical application is a significant benefit.
