How Arnica Flower is Used in Mountain Ice Sports Recovery Gel

Arnica Flower, an herbal remedy renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties, is a key ingredient in our new Mountain Ice Sports Recovery Gel. But how does this potent ingredient help you enhance athletic performance and longevity? Read on to find out!


How Arnica Flower is Used in Mountain Ice Sports Recovery Gel

How Arnica Works to Relieve Inflammation

Arnica is a genus of perennial herbs belonging to the the sunflower family Asteraceae, and several species of Arnica flower contain anti-inflammatory properties. Mountain Ice Muscle Therapy Gel makes use of Arnica Montana, or Mountain Arnica, which contains the anti-inflammatory compound Helenalin.

Helenalin, a naturally occurring chemical compound, works by inhibiting the production of Nuclear Factor Kappa Beta (NF-kB), a protein complex important in regulating immune response. Inflammation occurs when the body produces an excess of proteins like NF-kB, causing painful swelling, tissue damage, and other potentially harmful symptoms. By stopping the excess production of NF-kB, helenalin relieves swelling and helps to heal tissue damage.

Arnica for Improved Blood Flow

Arnica contains high concentrations of thymol, the compound that provides the flavor of the herb thyme. Thymol is also an effective vasodilator, meaning that it helps widen blood vessels, increasing blood flow while delivering more oxygen and nutrients to damaged tissue for faster healing. Efficient circulation also makes it easier for the organs in your body to function properly, while strain from impaired functioning creates more inflammation. This makes good circulation crucial for avoiding joint inflammation caused by the wear and tear of regular exercise.

Arnica for Muscle Soreness

The anti-inflammatory properties of arnica seem to have a beneficial effect on muscle pain and damage following intense exercise, with one study confirming that topical use of arnica post-exertion significantly reduced muscle soreness. This is particularly relevant for people who exercise regularly, as muscle soreness can be a serious impediment to maintaining your workout routine.


The potent effects of arnica work in Mountain Ice Sports Recovery Gel whether you're looking to enhance performance or recover faster. By increasing circulation, arnica helps deliver other all-natural ingredients deep into your muscles and joints. The anti-inflammatory power of helenalin can alleviate soreness and improve your range of motion both before and after exertion.
