Straight from China, Zheng Gu Shui is an analgesic oil which has been used for years to calm muscle aches and sooth minor pains. It is often used for self defense artists for bruises, sprains and minor injuries and is often found in an athlete's martial arts equipment. It is especially useful if an injury cannot be rubbed or massaged due to too much pain.

The active ingredients in Zheng Gu Shui is 3% Menthol and 3% Camphor. These alcohols warms the skin when topically applied and helps to relax the nerves and muscles. However, if overused it can irritate the skin and cause redness and should be allowed to dry before putting bandages or clothing over the skin.

Whether an Athlete or Not, Anyone Can Use Zheng Gu Shui

Everyone can benefit from the treatment of sore muscles, rheumatic arthritis, and swollen joints. Studies have shown the use of this liniment to help heal bones in one fifth the time where comfrey has been utilized. They can be applied using a clean cotton swab and can be kept in a sports bag for instant relief.

When used in conjunction with enzyme supplements such as Wobenzym, an athlete can expect to experience faster healing times with less pain and suffering. You can find this popular product in a number of sports health shops as well as online martial arts supplies sites online. A good supply can also be purchased as gifts, and will be much appreciated.
