Fall in Love With a Pain Free Life- Noxicare Natural Pain Relief Capsule Review

Posted By on February 15, 2014

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 

tablet_boxI have chronic pain with Fibromyalgia and back problems, which is why I decided to give Noxicare a try..
I have been taking them regular for one week and have noticed a difference already!

Since taking Noxicare, I sometimes forget to take my regularly prescribed pain meds and have noticed less aches, joint pain and a decrease in my back pain.

Anytime I can go natural rather than prescription is just fine with me! But it is nice to find one that actually works..
There is one thing I would like to mention, because of the natural ingredients used, the capsules have a strong “spice scent” to them. However this didn’t bother me, and they didn’t seem to upset my stomach which is a nice bonus.

Break free from pain with Noxicare™ fast acting natural pain relief formula.

Noxicare relieves all 3 common types of pain:
howpainworks

Other products might reduce inflammation, lessen muscle aches or increase blood flow to ease painful nerve endings. Noxicare relaxes the muscle and reduces inflammation to alleviate pain, while working to increase blood flow to calm painful nerve endings.

Noxicare™ means fast, natural pain relief with:
• NO known side effects
• NO prescription needed
• NO greasy feel or strong smell
• NO harmful chemicals
• NO lab-produced pharmaceuticals
• NO more pain

Noxicare natural ingredients have been used for centuries. Now for the first time, these phytonutrient ingredients have been formulated together to provide relief for joint, nerve and muscle pain:

Alpha Lipoic Acids: are anti-oxidants used for increasing blood flow to the nerves
Boswellia Extract: is an anti-inflammatory used to treat arthritis and joint pain
Ginger Extract: helps alleviate muscle strains, arthritis and rheumatism, and is a catalyst for improving the effectiveness of other herbs
Holy Basil Extract: properties include anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant.
Rosemary Extract: has served a variety of purposes, including topical use for joint or musculoskeletal pain..
Turmeric Extract: is one of the most powerful healers found in nature, recognized for its anti-inflammatory properties
Willow Bark Extract: has been used to treat pain and inflammation since the time of ancient Egypt and Greece.

Product Information

 

What is Co Q-10?

CoQ10Made with a natural, highly bioavailable form of Co Q 10 — Q-Sorb™. Co Q-10 contributes to your heart and cardiovascular wellness.* It also helps support healthy blood pressure levels already within a normal range.* Promotes energy production within your heart, brain and muscles and provides powerful antioxidant support**
Good oral health is linked to cardiovascular health; Coenzyme Q10 supports both!
*Important for Statin drug users — taking Q-Sorb™ Co Q 10 can help replenish what Statin drugs can deplete

++Note: Coenzyme Q10 is not intended to serve as a replacement for Statin therapy, nor should you discontinue taking any prescribed medications while supplementing with Coenzyme Q10.

These are small softgels that are easy to take..


What is is Phytosterol Complex?

phytoPhytosterol Complex promotes cardiovascular and circulatory wellness* and may reduce the risk of heart disease. Scientific evidence demonstrates that diets that include phytosterols may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Puritan Pride’s specialized formula exceeds strict quality standards for levels of phytosterols (beta sitosterol, stigmasterol, and campesterol) – the active ingredients that help maintain cholesterol levels already within a normal range.*

Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 2 g per day of plant sterols eaten with meals or snacks may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Phytosterol Complex supplies 0.5 g of plant sterols.

 These are medium sized pills, but easy to swallow because they are softgels..

What are some uses for Omega-3 Fish Oil?

Omega-3FishOilFish oil supports heart health.* A daily fish oil supplement contains heart healthy nutrients including Omega-3 fatty acids – the ‘good fats’ that help balance the ‘bad fats’ in your diet.*

Puritan’s Pride Ester-Omega® Fish Oil provides 300mg of total omega-3 fatty acids, comprising of EPA, DHA and other fatty acids. EPA and DHA fatty acids support heart health, and provide an energy source for your body. * Purified to eliminate mercury.

 

These are larger sized pills, but easy to swallow because they are softgels. And I want to mention that I didn’t notice any “fishy” after taste, like you do with other Omega-3 Fish oils…

What is Natural Flax Oil?
flax
Flaxseed is one of the most concentrated vegetarian source of Omega-3 fatty acids found in nature — it contributes to heart, while providing an energy source for the body.*

 These are the largest size pills of the bunch, but again I didn’t have any trouble swallowing them, because they are soft gels.

 

What is Flush Free Niacin?

niacinNiacin is a B vitamin that performs many beneficial functions in the body, including promoting a healthy heart and circulatory system.* Niacin aids in maintaining proper metabolic functioning, supporting energy metabolism as well as carbohydrate and protein metabolism.* Niacin capsules also contribute to nervous system health, while helping to maintain healthy skin.*

 

 

 These are a regular sized capsule, easy to swallow and I did not get any “Niacin Flush”  from them. I normally do get a pretty strong flush from other brands of Niacin..
