COLD THERAPY

WHAT IS COLD THERAPY?

When an acute injury occurs (such as a sprain or strain), the blood vessels, capillaries, and veins will dilate and blood flow to the affected area will increase. This process causes swelling and pain.

The main goal of cold therapy for acute injury is to constrict these dilated blood vessels and reduce blood flow (Vasoconstriction). Applying cold therapy within the first 72 hours after injury will significantly reduce pain and reduce swelling faster.

ADVANTAGES

Often the cold exceeds the sensation of pain: this is called the "pain gateway theory". By activating the vasoconstriction process, cooled muscles and blood vessels:

• Reduces inflammation and swelling faster.

• Pain stimuli in nerve bundles are relaxed.

• Muscle tension and cramps are significantly reduced.

WHEN TO USE

The use of cold is most appropriate in acute conditions (ie when the injury is recent); for instance:

• Sprains: An injury that occurs when ligaments are overstretched.

• Bruising: Occurs when a blood vessel bursts under the surface of the skin.

• Overuse: caused by repeated (too) heavy movements.

• Growing Pains: Pain in the joints, muscles and tendons resulting from pressure caused by differences in the rate of growth of different muscle and joint groups.

WHEN NOT TO USE

Do not use cold therapy for chronic conditions (where heat therapies are more appropriate) and never use cold on open wounds.

Also, never use cold before exercise, as this can increase the risk of muscle and/or tendon strain.

ICE COLD MUSCLE GEL

RÉVVI Cold Gel is mainly composed of natural ingredients that are considered to be important contributors to the inflammation and/or vasoconstriction (constriction) process.

The ingredients listed below are used in high concentrations in our ICE COLD MUSCLE GEL and are scientifically proven to be effective. A careful composition of ingredients also ensures deep penetration and a long-lasting effect.

MAIN INGREDIENTS

Our ICE COLD MUSCLE GEL consists primarily of natural ingredients, each with its own specific characteristics. The cooperation of these ingredients results in a highly effective product that provides a long-lasting cooling effect.

CAMPHOR

CAMPHORA

This plant awakens, by the way, a slight local numbness of the nerve pathways, so that pain, swelling and inflammation are perceived as less bothersome.

Camphor activates the TRP (transient receptor potential) and is useful in the treatment of inflammation and swelling caused by external influences.

PEPPER MINT

MENTHA ARVENSIS

L-menthol occurs naturally in peppermint leaves and is considered one of the most effective natural cooling agents.

Scientific studies confirm that peppermint extract has clinically relevant properties that provide analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.

CASTOR OIL

RICINUS COMMUNIS

Castor oil extract is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and contribution to both joint pain and local (muscle) inflammation.

Ricinus is an antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory properties that are believed to be helpful in treating inflammation and swelling, among other things.

THE COMPOSITION:
ICE COLD MUSCLE GEL consists of 80% natural ingredients and water, contains minimal additional additives and very little preservatives to ensure our gel remains effective for up to 12 months after opening.

OTHER IMPORTANT INGREDIENTS:
Water (for dilution), Denatured Alcohol (for viscosity), Glycol (for hydration), Limonene (cooling).

THE END

RÉVVI ICE COLD MUSCLE GEL is chemical-free and has a unique composition of natural ingredients. The main purpose of the "vasoconstruction" property is to maximally and optimally restore or protect the affected part of the body.

ICE COLD MUSCLE GEL is strongly recommended for the treatment of low to moderate sore areas caused by inflammation, sprains, fatigue and acute injuries that require immediate cooling.
