Hops: Nature’s Friendly Painkiller
As someone who has lived with chronic muscle, joint, and nerve pain, I am constantly on the look out for any effective natural pain relievers. Over the counter pain killers not only cloud my head, but they fail to take away my pain. In fact, drugs such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve, and Excedrin only put me in more pain, as I developed esophageal ulcers from using them.
Feeling hopeless, I became convinced I would live in excruciating pain forever -until I found out about nature’s natural pain killer, that is. Perluxan, an extract found in hops, serves as an effective alternative for over the counter pain relievers. Furthermore, the natural pain reliever is void of harmful side effects.
Hops are commonly used to relieve painful joints, sore muscles, migraines and sprains. As someone plagued by chronic migraines, this news is heaven to my ears -and head. The hops extract Perluxan is also a strong antioxidant that is able to neutralize damaged molecules, which are often an underlying source of pain for many.
Research shows that 1,000 mg of Perluxan is equivalent to the recommended dose of 400 mg of ibuprofen. The maximum dose of Perluxan is 1,000 mg twice a day. Chronic pain sufferers can safely take 1,ooo mg of Perluxan twice a day for three weeks, and then lower their dosage to 500 mg a day. This means those who suffer from chronic pain can take a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory daily without worrying about destroying their stomach lining, having heartburn, or developing ulcers.
Where to find it
Look for natural pain relievers that contain Perluxan. Typically, it will be listed on the label as Perluxan, Hops (Humulus lupulus L.), or (cones extract).
