Those dealing with lingering joint and muscle pain have many options, from NSAIDs like ibuprofen and aspirin, to natural remedies like capsaicin. However, these methods aren’t localized, so they’re less effective per unit dose. Pain strips and patches may be a better option.
Even then, there are plenty of different patches to choose from. While every brand of pain patch claims to be the best available, PowerStrips by FGXpress have distinct advantages over other patches that make them a better choice.
Both the platform—the patch and adhesives themselves—and the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) are naturally derived. The APIs in PowerStrips by FGXpress are fermented Korean red ginseng and a strain of marine phytoplankton with unique healing properties. The patch is made from all-natural fibers, and the adhesive is gentle and water soluble.
Using all-natural ingredients helps ensure that PowerStrips remain a healthy choice for users. In addition, these ingredients have a much less severe impact on the environment than do most synthetic chemical compounds.
Unique Heat Delivery System with Elemental Germanium
Germanium is a metalloid, a kind of element that is not quite nonmetal, but not quite metal either. Metalloid elements have peculiar physical properties that can be useful for treating sore joints and muscles.
In its elemental form, germanium bends light and heat, much like a prism or lens. PowerStrips take advantage of this property in order to redistribute ambient and body heat onto the area under the patch, providing soothing warmth that extends deep into the body to the bones without synthetic chemical compounds.
Formally Listed as Safe and Effective by Regulators
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lists PowerStrips by FGXpress as a class 1 medical device, which puts these patches under regular scrutiny by regulators. This is good for users because independent inspections and testing is done to ensure the safety of these devices. They were also recently recognized to be completely free of all banned substances by the Banned Substances Control Group.
It is, of course, essential to use medical devices as directed. PowerStrips are meant to be used for external purposes only, so they are not appropriate for pain due to things such as wounds or rashes.
