Did you know that 1 in 5 adults in Canada lives with arthritis? The number of people in Canada with arthritis is on the rise and is expected to reach 9 million people by the year 2040. Today, we will explore how the KaLaya 6x Extra Strength Pain Relief Cream helps to relieve the pain of arthritis.
How Arthritis Causes Pain
Arthritis is defined by swelling and tenderness of the joints. The two most common types of arthritis are:
- Osteoarthritis. Known sometimes as “wear and tear” arthritis; osteoarthritis is caused by the breaking down of cartilage around the joint. It generally develops quite slowly and can be managed (though not reversed) by maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle.
- Rheumatoid arthritis. An autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the joints, beginning with the lining of joints and eventually destroying cartilage. Unlike osteoarthritis, which generally begins later in life and progresses slowly; rheumatoid arthritis can begin at any time and progresses quite rapidly.
What Is Cartilage and Why Is It Important?
Cartilage is a strong, flexible connective tissue that acts as a shock absorber. By breaking down cartilage, arthritis removes this natural shock absorber, resulting in more wear and tear on your joints.
How Arthritis Pain Affects People
Common symptoms of arthritis are pain, stiffness, swelling and a decreased range of motion in the affected joints.
People living with arthritis generally report worse general health and mental health than those who don't. This can be partially attributed to the pain itself, and partially due to the stiffness and decrease range of motion affecting their lifestyle. 40% of people living with arthritis in Canada have pain that limits their activities. They're also 5 times more likely to have mobility problems when compared to the general population.
How Does 6x Help to Alleviate Arthritis Pain?
Our exclusive 6x formula is proven to provide relief for some of the most common symptoms associated with arthritis.
Wintergreen, Menthol, MSM and Eucalyptus all provide temporary relief for both muscle and joint pain while Arnica helps to lessen inflammation and Camphor is used to temporarily reduce swelling. Together, these six active ingredients help to temporarily reduce your pain while also lowering the amount of inflammation and swelling in the affected joints. This reduction in inflammation and swelling can also help to reduce stiffness in the joints while improving their range of motion; allowing you to get back to doing the things you love.
For people living with osteoarthritis, this increased range of motion and reduction in stiffness will also help to maintain a healthy active lifestyle; helping to slow the progression of the disease.
