Cobra Venom and it’s effects on Arthritis

The knowledge which was known to Ayurveda practitioners for hundreds of years is being given serious thought now. It’s being verified that Ayurveda treatment for Arthritis using Cobra venom could reduce pain as well arrest further damage from Arthritis.

Such anecdotal claims, including teachings in India’s centuries’ old Ayurveda traditional medicine system, may hold some truth. Venom from cobras may not only treat arthritis, but also prevent further damage from the condition.

Scientists have just determined that Indian monocellate cobra venom displayed anti-arthritic activity during lab tests on rodents, according to a paper that will be in the February-March issue of the journal Toxicon.

While clinical trials on humans are still needed, a cobra venom arthritis ointment is in the works, lead author Antony Gomes told Discovery News.

“We have already prepared such an oil-based preparation (for topical application), which is showing very promising results on humans,” Gomes, a professor of physiology at the University of Calcutta, said.[Cobra Venom Erases Arthritis Symptoms]

Recent study brings hope for the millions of Arthritis patients…

In a study in the journal Arthritis Research & Therapy, researchers found that an enriched extract of Indian frankincense, known as 5-Loxin, a product developed by Laila Nutraceuticals, not only reduces the pain of arthritis, but does it quickly.

Researcher Siba Raychaudhuri, professor at UC Davis, recruited 75 patients who had the pain of arthritis in their knees, hips, hands, wrists, feet or spines. One group of 25 people got a placebo. Two other groups of 25 each got the supplement, one taking 100 mg daily for three months, and the other taking 250 mg daily for three months. Both groups that took the supplements reported they could move with less stiffness and pain, and the group that took the higher dose began feeling relief in about a week.[Hey, Wise Man, got anything for my aching back? ]
