Saber ointments are used in traumatological, orthopedic, rheumatological practice. The herbal ingredient from the composition of the drug has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, analgesic, decongestant effect. Ointments are used in the treatment of various pathologies of the musculoskeletal system – arthritis, osteochondrosis, radiculitis. Regular application with saberfish helps to prevent the progression of destructive degenerative changes in the spine, joints, ligaments and tendons. High clinical efficacy of drugs can minimize side effects, especially allergic reactions. Therefore, before starting treatment, you must consult a doctor to assess the appropriateness of their use.
Characteristic features of local application agents
In the treatment of inflammatory and destructive lesions of the joints, the first choice drugs are glucocorticosteroids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The duration of their use is 10-14 days. Exceeding the therapeutic course increases the likelihood of developing adverse reactions. The most dangerous of them are thinning of bones and a decrease in the body’s production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin.
Cinquefoil ointment for joints can be used for a long time. It is affordable, inexpensive, has no toxic effects, and goes well with other drugs. The medicinal plant is actively used in both official and traditional medicine. Its habitat is the tundra and forest zones of Eurasia, therefore pharmaceutical factories do not lack this raw material.
The therapeutic line includes ointments, balms, creams, alcohol tinctures. And now in the pharmacy you can buy pills and capsules with saber for the treatment of joint diseases. Doctors recommend combining local and systemic drugs in the treatment of pathologies of the musculoskeletal system.
The chemical composition of the aerial parts of the Cinquefoil (Comarum palustre L.) includes such biologically active compounds:
- bioflavonoids that restore blood vessel permeability and improve microcirculation;
- butyric and isovaleric acid, accelerating the regeneration of inflammation of the joint structures;
- tannins and tarry substances that have analgesic, locally irritating and distracting effects;
- organic acids that activate metabolic processes that increase the production of synovial fluid;
- volatile, which remove the final and intermediate products of the inflammatory process from the joint cavity, activate tissue healing.
But the cinquefoil is especially appreciated for the presence of essential oils with a high content of pinene, terpeniol, methylheptenone. These bioactive compounds are characterized by anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiseptic, antimycotic effect. There are a lot of fat-and water-soluble vitamins, micro and macro elements in plant materials. The course application of cream for joints with saber is replenishing the reserves of calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, molybdenum.
Varieties of ointments, creams, balms
The concentration of the herbal ingredient in the external remedies varies greatly with saber. In some preparations, it is the main component, while in others it is present in small quantities. What to consider when choosing an ointment with sabelnik extract:
- all of them relate to dietary supplements;
- a large number of ingredients does not become a sign of a high clinical effect (the number of components is from 3 to 10);
- for the treatment of joints, external agents should be chosen, which include compounds with chondroprotective activity: chondroitin sulfate, glucosamine hydrochloride, hyaluronic acid, collagen.
All gels, balms, ointments for joints with saber are intended for long-term use. Their therapeutic effect begins to manifest itself gradually, as active ingredients accumulate in the tissues.
Scientists from the All-Russian Cancer Research Center of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences are studying the ability of the saber to suppress cell mutation. Biologically active substances that can be used to treat and prevent cancer are isolated from young shoots of the plant.
