This wonderful gel receives so much praise for helping people to overcome muscle or joint pain. There are two options of gel available - 90% DMSO, or 70% DMSO with Aloe Vera. If you have very sensitive skin, it is recommended you try the option with Aloe Vera, as it is much more gentle on the skin.
Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) works as an effective painkiller which blocks nerve conduction ﬁbers that produce pain. Spread sparingly and carefully on painful areas, it helps to reduce inﬂammation and swelling, as well as to dilate blood vessels to increase the supply and circulation of blood. It is also among the most potent antioxidants known.
It can be a potent pain reliever in burns, acne, arthritis, strokes, amyloidosis, injuries, scleroderma, toothaches, headaches, haemorrhoids and muscle strains. It helps soften scar tissues. In fact, it is useful in well over 300 ailments and it is completely safe to use.
I did lots of research on DMSO before buying this gel, so thought I knew what to expect. However, the potency of this gel is high, I chose the 70% gel, thinking it would be okay on my skin, but I was wrong. The gel really helped with the pain, but it makes my skin itch, this did wear off after about half an hour though. As this was my first time using the DMSO, I think I needed to start with a lower percentage to get used to it. Unfortunately you do not do a 50% or even a 25% gel, so I will need to look elsewhere now. But for those of you out there wondering if it really works, well it did for me and I suffer with nerve damage down my legs and this gel really took the pain away.
