Composition of Arthcare Oil: (Herbs for Arthritis, Joint Pain Relief)
a) Commiphora mukul (Shuddha Guggul) 100mg:
Guggul is an oleoresin present in the herb Commiphora mukul. In folk medicines, it is used for reducing joint pain and inflammation. Experimental studies have confirmed the effectiveness of guggul as an anti-inflammatory agent. Guggulsterone, an active compound present in the guggul, is believed to suppress the activities of pro-inflammatory proteins and enzymes. (Khanna D, Sethi G, Ahn KS, Pandey MK, Kunnumakkara AB, Sung B, Aggarwal A, Aggarwal BB. “Natural products as a gold mine for arthritis treatment.” Curr Opin Pharmacol. 2007 Jun;7(3):344-51). According to a Southern California University of Health Sciences study, guggul could significantly reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis. (Singh BB, Mishra LC, Vinjamury SP, Aquilina N, Singh VJ, Shepard N. “The effectiveness of Commiphora mukul for osteoarthritis of the knees: an outcomes study.” Altern Ther Health Med. 2003 May-Jun;9(3):74-9). According to studies, the anti-inflammatory effect of guggul is comparable to that of the common drugs such as ibuprofen and phenylbutazone used for reducing arthritis pain. (Sharma JN, Sharma JN. “Comparison of the anti-inflammatory activity of Comminphora mukul (an indigenous drug) with those of phenylbutazone and ibuprofen in experimental arthritis induced by mycobacterial adjuvant.” Arzneimittelforschung. 1977 Jul;27(7):1455-7).
b) Pluchea Lanceolata (Rasna) 60mg:
Pluchea lancrealata helps in alleviating chronic joint inflammation triggered by malfunction of the immune system. The immunosuppressive properties of the herb have been demonstrated in experimental studies. (Bhagwat DP, Kharya MD, Bani S, Kaul A, Kour K, Chauhan PS, Suri KA, Satti NK. “Immunosuppresive properties of Pluchea lanceolata leaves.” Indian J Pharmacol. 2010 Feb;42(1):21-6).
c) Cedrus Deodara (Devdaru) 30mg:
The oil extracted from the Cedrus deodara bark could effectively reduce symptoms of chronic inflammation in arthritis. It also helps to reduce pain and discomfort through its analgesic function. (Shinde UA, Phadke AS, Nair AM, Mungantiwar AA, Dikshit VJ, Saraf MN. “Studies on the anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of Cedrus deodara (Roxb.) Loud. wood oil.” J Ethnopharmacol. 1999 Apr;65(1):21-7).
d) Allium Sativum (Garlic) 60mg:
Allium sativum or garlic is beneficial for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis patients. Sulphur compounds, known as alliums present in the culinary herb, reduce inflammation by suppressing the activities of pro-inflammatory enzymes and proteins. (Anti-inflammatory and arthritic effects of thiacremonone, a novel sulfur compound isolated from garlic via inhibition of NF-kappaB.” Arthritis Res Ther. 2009;11(5):R145).
e) Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha, Winter cherry) 60mg:
Degradation of collagen in the bones, ligaments and tendons is the common outcome of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Withania somnifera, also known as Ashwagandha, could inhibit collagen destruction and improve the condition of the synovial joints affected by arthritis. (Ganeshan K, Sehgal PK, Mandal AB, Sayeed S. “Protective effect of Withania somnifera and Cardiospermum halicacabum Extracts Against Collagenolytic Degradation of Collagen.” Appl Biochem Biotechnol. 2011 Jul26). Ashwagandha root helps in reducing cartilage damage even in chronic osteoarthritis patients who did not respond to therapies with glycosamine. (Sumantran VN, Chandawaskar R, Joshi AK, Boddul S, Patwardhan B, Chopra A, Wagh UV. “The relationship between chondroprotective and anti-inflammatory effects of Withania somnifera root and glucosamine sulphate on human osteoarthritic cartilage in vitro.” Phytother Res. 2008 Oct;22(10):1342-8). Withania somnifera could help to attenuate chronic inflammation by suppressing the activities of pro-inflammatory molecules. (Singh D, Aggarwal A, Maurya R, Naik S. “Withania somnifera inhibits NF-kappa B and AP-1 transcription factors in human peripheral blood and synovial fluid mononuclear cells.” Phytother Res. 2007 Oct;21(10):905-13). The symptoms of gouty arthritis, caused by accumulation of urate crystals in the joints, could be reduced with the help of Ashwagandha root. Moreover, unlike non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, long-term use of the herb is not linked to gastric damage. (Rasool M, Varalakshmi P. “Suppressive effect of Withania somnifera root powder on experimental gouty arthritis: An in vivo and in vitro study.” Chem Biol Interact. 2006 Dec15;164(3):174-80).
f) Vitex Negundo (Nirgundi) 60mg:
The anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect of Vitex negundo leaves could reduce inflammation and pain in the joints. The herb could even boost the activities of the antioxidants in the human body, arresting further destruction of the vulnerable joints owing to oxidative stress. (Dharmasiri MG, Jayakody JR, Galhena G, Liyanage SS, Ratnasooriya WD. “Anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of mature fresh leaves of Vitex negundo.” J Ethnopharmacol. 2003 Aug;87(2-3):199-206).
g) Ricinus Communis (Castor beans):
Ricinoleic acid, the most prominent active compound in castor oil, possesses anti-inflammatory property. (Vierira C, Fetzer S, Sauer SK, Evangelista S, Averbeck B, Kress M, Reeh PW, Cirillo R, Lippi A, Maggi CA, Manzini S. “Pro and anti-inflammatory actions of ricinoleic acid: similarities and differences with capsaicin.” Naunyn Schmiedebergs Arch Pharmacol. 2001 Aug;364(2):87-95). The effectiveness of castor oil as a knee osteoarthritis therapy has been confirmed in a clinical trial conducted by researchers at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education Research, Chandigarh and All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. (Medhi B, Kishore K, Singh U, Seth SD. “Comparative clinical trial of castor oil and diclofenac sodium in patients with osteoarthritis.” Phytother Res. 2009 Oct;23(10):1469-73).
h) Paederia foetida (Gandhaprasarini) 60mg:
The leaves of Paederia foetida, a plant native to the Indian subcontinent, are recommended in folk medicines for inflammatory disorders. Studies indicate anti-rheumatic function of the plant. (De S, Ravishankar B, Bhavsar GC. “Investigation of the anti-inflammatory effects of Paederia foetida.” J Ethnopharmacol. 1994 Jun;43(1):31-8).
i) Cinnamonum Camphora (Karpura) 500mg:
The soothing effect of camphor helps to reduce the sensation of pain. Experimental studies on arthritis have confirmed the anti-inflammatory effect of Cinnamonum camphora. (Li H, Huang L, Zhou A, Li X, Sun J. “Study on anti-inflammatory effect of different chemotype of Cinnamomum camphora on rat arthritis model induced by Freund’s adjuvant.” Zhonggou Zhong Yao Za Zhi. 2009 Dec;34(24):3251-4).
j) Other ingredients in Arthcare Oil:
The above anti-inflammatory natural ingredients have been blended with sesame oil, menthol, Piper Nigrum or pepper and Trachyspermum ammi or ajwain. Laboratory studies have demonstrated the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant functions of sesame seed oil. (Lee WJ, Ou HC, Wu CM, Lee IT, Lin SY, Lin LY, Tsai KL, Lee SD, Sheu WH. “Sesamin mitigates inflammation and oxidative stress in endotherlial cells exposed to oxidized low-protein lipoprotein.” J Agric Food Chem. 2009 Dec 9;57(23):11406-17). In folk medicine, poultice with ajwain is recommended for reducing arthritis pain. Menthol is a topical analgesic. It speedily penetrates the skin, soothes the sore joints and reduces body pain and muscles cramps. It is frequently added to arthritis relief ointments to improve their effectiveness. (Kraemer WJ, Ratamess NA, Maresh CM, Anderson JA, Volek JS, Tiberio DP, Joyce ME, Messinger BN, French DN, Sharman MJ, Rubin MR, Gomez AL, Silvestre R, Hesslink RL Jr. “A cetylated fatty acid topical cream with methanol reduces pain and improves functional performance in individuals with arthritis.” J Strength Cond Res. 2005 May;19(2):475-80).

Precautions: Arthcare Oil is for External Use Only
Ashwagandha or winter cherry is scientifically known as Withania Somnifera
and belongs to the family of Solanaceae. The herb is widely used in the Ayurvedic medicine due to its innumerable healing properties.
Ashwagandha is a rich source of lactones and alkaloids, which are natural steroids. These compounds help in providing relief from pain in people suffering from arthritis. Steroidal lactones consist of elements known as withanolides. So far, scientists have identified almost 35 withanolides and 12 alkaloids. The pharmacological activity of ashwagandha is due to two prime withanolides known as Withaferin D.11 and Withaferin A.
The herb is extensively used in pain management, especially for arthritic conditions.
A study conducted by scientists in 2008 revealed the effects of ashwagandha on human cartilage. It showed significant effect against cartilage damage and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. The herb helps in relaxing blood vessels and supports circulation. It has tonic and anti-inflammatory effect in autoimmune and rheumatic conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
Animal studies have shown that the naturally occurring steroids are more powerful than hydrocortisone (a synthetic steroid) in controlling inflammation. The herb is used for reducing sciatica and lower back pain, as it nourishes bone tissues and muscle.
According to scientists, the antioxidant properties as well as the ability of the herb to scavenge free radicals are responsible for its beneficial effects.
Guggul has been used extensively in the Ayurvedic system. It is the dry gum resin acquired from the tree bark. The gum contains resin, sterols, volatile oils, minerals, sterones, flavones and other constituents.
The plant has many pharmacologically active components including guggulsterone and gugulipid.
The plant extract has anti-inflammatory action. A clinical research conducted on thirty elderly patients with the problem of osteoarthritis showed considerable improvement in the WOMAC index (Western Ontario & McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis) and visual analog scores after consuming 500 mg of guggulsterone three times every day with food.
It is commonly known as 5-leaved chaste, Vitex Negundo’s roots, leaves, fruits and bark are highly medicinal. The experimental studies on different animal models have demonstrated that various parts of the plant, especially the seeds, roots, fruits and leaves possess anti-arthritic and anti-inflammatory activity.
A.S. Chawla et al. investigated the anti-inflammatory property of Vitex negundo seed extract in the male rats
(Sprague-Dawley) in carrageenan induced rat paw edema utilizing Ibuprofen as the drug. Another study conducted in 1999 reports initial anti-inflammatory activity of this ingredient in albino rats together with Tinospora cordifolia and Zingiber officianale. M. G. Dharmasiri et al. in the year 2003 investigated anti-inflammatory property of the Vitex aqueous extract.
