Beneficial Effects Rendered By Zinda Tilismath Balm
Here is the list and details of the major beneficial effects you get by massaging Zinda Tilismath Balm on the aching area of your skin. These beneficial effects are because of the natural constituents included in this herbal product.
Thymol, a key ingredient of Zinda Tilismath Balm, has been proven to own strong anti-inflammatory characteristics. When applied topically, it inhibits the migration of inflammatory cells and also relieves edema of the skin (Fachini-Queiroz et.al. 1).
Similarly, a research study has proved that the essential oil extract of the eucalyptus plant significantly reduces swelling and edema, and therefore, possesses anti-inflammatory properties (Gbenou et. al. 1131).
These anti-inflammatory effects of thymol and eucalyptus oil make Zinda Tilismath Balm an effective remedy for many inflammation-related ailments.
Zinda Tilismath Balm also imparts muscle relaxant effects. The camphor, included in its composition, is known to relieve pains associated with muscle cramps, muscle spasms, and stiffness. A study, published in 2004, claimed that camphor has excellent anti-spasmodic and muscle relaxant abilities, and massaging camphor on the sore muscles a few times a day provides a marked relief from such pains (Astudillo et. al. 102).
Counter-irritant / Analgesic
Menthol imparts an analgesic or counter-irritant effect by desensitizing the pain perceiving receptors in our skin. Besides, it also activates the pain-relieving pathways of our central nervous system (Pergolizzi et. al. 313). Same is the case with eucalyptus oil (Silva et. al. 282).
Methyl salicylate also belongs to the class of topical analgesics which first activates the epidermal nociceptors and then desensitizes them causing an instantaneous relief from various kinds of pain (Barkin 7).
Both menthol and methyl salicylate make your skin feel cool first and then create a warming sensation. It distracts your attention from the pain and produces a soothing effect.
Menthol binds with the cold receptors present in the skin and increases the flow of calcium ions into the cell. The raised intracellular calcium concentration, in turn, stimulates these cold receptors and produces a perception of cold sensation (Hensel et. al. 27; Schäfer et. al. 620).
Eucalyptus oil along with other ingredients penetrates the deeper layers of the skin and imparts a cooling sensation.
Therapeutic Uses Of Zinda Tilismath Balm
Zinda Tilismath Balm can be used to relieve the following ailments.
Arthritis is an inflammatory disease of joints. The anti-inflammatory action of thymol and eucalyptus oil present in Zinda Tilismath Balm helps in alleviating the pain and swelling of arthritis.
Owning the strong muscle relaxant properties of camphor, Zinda Tilismath Balm serves as an amazing remedy for pains caused by muscle spasms, cramps, and stiffness.
Sprains refer to the pain produced by stretching or tearing of ligaments. The cooling and analgesic effects of Zinda Tilismath balm can help to address such pain.
Massaging the forehead with Zinda Tilismath Balm provides instantaneous relief from headaches. This is rendered due to the soothing and cooling effects of menthol and methyl salicylate which distract our attention from the perception of headaches.
A small amount of Zinda Balm on pimples help to ease pain and inflammation, thereby reducing the size of pimple and redness.
