Description | See IngredientsIn MusclEase from Physiologics, the natural herbs valerian, passion flower and white willow are combined with calcium and magnesium to promote proper muscle function. This formula is especially good for those experiencing occasional muscular tension related to exercise.
- Supports overworked muscles
- Promotes proper muscle function
- All active ingredients are naturally-sourced meaning no chemically-synthesized actives are utilized.
- Only standardized extracts are used to ensure consistent delivery of many of the active principles.
- Delivers not one but several ingredients implicated to play a role in neuromuscular relaxation pathways.
Willow bark constituents are believed to act through various mechanisms. The main mechanism providing beneficial effects is most likely through interaction with PGH-synthase. In addition, Salicin and its derivatives may affect the functioning of neutrophils to help ease overworked muscles.
Each serving of MusclEase provides an excellent source of the essential mineral Magnesium. Magnesiums role in proper muscle function cannot be understated as it is involved in most if not all energy-requiring reactions.
Valerian and its principle components have been extensively studied for well over 50 years. Several natural components are believed to initiate its relaxation effects, including valerenic acid (standardized to .8% in MusclEase).
Passion flower is a traditional herb used for its neurochemical sedative actions. Beneficial effects attributed to passion flower include increase in latency of reaction, increased threshold to nociceptive stimuli of heat, and increased nervous system relaxation (Speroni/88).
Occasional muscular tension can affect relaxation and overall quality of life. Excessive strain from physical activity is often a leading culprit and can be simultaneously affected by psychological stressors. MusclEase works not only at the level of muscle contraction / relaxation, but also upstream by interacting with the central nervous system and neuromuscular activity.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was conducted in 82 subjects. Each subject received either an active dose, which contained 100mg of white willow bark in combination with other traditional herbs (2x daily), or a matching placebo tablet. Results measured with analysis of paired differences revealed an improvement in comfort scores for the active dose group as compared to the placebo group. This effect was widely attributed to the known systemic comfort promoting effects of the active ingredients with in white willow bark. (Mills/96)
Valerian, propranolol, and the combination of both, or placebos were given to subjects to measure the independent and synergistic effects on somatic and psychological activation when faced with stressful situations. 100mg of Valerian Extract (the same amounting to 2 capsules of MusclEase) was found to reduce subjective feelings of somatic arousal. The authors reported that Valerian was able to induce thymoleptic effects for overall well-being. This in turn could lead to a state of relaxation in muscles and other organs affected by stress (Kohnen/88).
As evidenced by laboratory and clinical investigations, ingredients within MusclEase can affect various pathways directly tied to muscle relaxation. Only the highest grade extracts and ingredients are chosen to help bring about the beneficial effects of a truly synergistic combination.
