Clinical Trial results have shown

It is absorbed through the skin and penetrates the joints with soothing relief from pain and inflammation. Unlike sports rubs, which may simply increase blood circulation and produce a very temporary cessation of pain, this works more gradually over a few weeks to produce long lasting relief. With increased range of motion, users experience a restored quality of life, free from the debilitating limitations of osteoarthritis.
Applied daily, the cream offers sustained joint health and provides relief from pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis without toxic or harmful side effects.
A dual centre, pivitol Phase III, randomized controlled trial using Acteev® technology for knee osteoarthritis pain, inflammation and cartilage breakdown markers (Prof. Graeme Jones, Menzies Research Institute of Musculoskeletal Disease, Hobart) confirmed:
“This is superior to placebo for OA knee pain at 12 weeks” by both the Visual Analogue pain Score (VAS) and the Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS).
This study confirmed the findings of a prior published pilot study by Oklahoma State University, an Open Label Trial in New Zealand and a considerable body of anecdotal evidence.
