Tea tree oil, long renowned for its effectiveness in wound care, is one of the potent compounds that makes Mountain Ice Muscle Therapy Gel so effective. But how does this powerful ingredient work to propel your body to peak athletic performance? Read on to find out!

 

Tea Tree Oil

Skin and Wound Care

It's common to find tea tree oil, derived from the leaves of Australia's native Melaleuca alternifolia plant, as a component in topical medications. Its potentially beneficial impact on skin health includes numerous conditions, including acne, eczema, and oily skin. Most importantly for athletes, though, is tea tree oil's effectiveness in healing wounds: studies suggest that tea tree oil may decrease healing time. This means that cuts and bruises from physical activity may heal faster when you use tea tree oil!

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

  • Tea tree oil's effectiveness in skin care is largely the result of its anti-inflammatory components, which is why many people use it for dry & itchy skin, as well as conditions like acne and eczema. This versatile substance can heal more than just skin conditions, though! Likely due to its high concentration of terpinen-4-ol, tea tree has significant anti-inflammatory properties that can improve recovery from physical exertion as well as reduce soreness afterwards.
  • Antioxidant Properties

  • Tea tree oil displays antioxidant activity, which helps to reduce oxidative stress, the imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants. It can cause cellular damage resulting in inflammation, sometimes even as a chronic condition. Tea tree oil contains numerous antioxidants that help to balance out free radicals and reduce this damage.

  • Antifungal Properties

    Athlete's foot and other irritating, painful fungal infections have a huge impact on athletes, and spread easily in locker rooms and gyms. Tea tree oil may help prevent the spread of these infections! It can kill a wide range of yeasts and fungi, and research suggests terpinen-4-ol can enhance the effectiveness of certain antifungal drugs.

    Antiviral Properties

    Tea tree oil has been indicated for possible effectiveness against some viruses. Although the need for more research has been indicated in these cases, applying tea tree oil can potentially boost your immune health, helping you perform at a high level by avoiding illness!
