Gel-balsams "Horsepower" and "ZooVIP" for the treatment of joints
Treatment of joints in such complex diseases as arthrosis and arthritis is not an easy task even for a very competent doctor. Therefore, any means that help with pain in the joints are valued literally in gold.
Some time ago two similar medicinal products appeared on the Russian market - "Horsepower" and "ZooVIP"( Zoovip) - with approximately the same effect, which were announced by manufacturers as effective external means for pain in the joints.
Let's look at them in more detail and find out how they work.
Tool number 1: gel healing "Horsepower"( "Horse Force")
appearance of gel pack
The "Horsepower" tool( as its packaging looks, you can see in the figure beside) is produced in a capacious container of 500 ml, and the costit is from 400 to 600 rubles.
This product is recommended for the care of the skin and joints for pain caused by diseases of the musculoskeletal system - arthrosis( osteoarthritis), arthritis, as well as after injuries to bones, ligaments and joints.
In addition, the gel "Horsepower" gives a good preventive and curative effect with increased physical exertion: thanks to its use, you can avoid muscle overstrain.
Due to what the drug gives such results? It consists of three active natural components, each of which has its own effect.
1. Vitamin E
Due to the fact that the product contains this vitamin in its composition, when rubbing the medicine, it has a beneficial effect primarily on the skin of a person: faster healing of various wounds on its surface, beneficial effect on blood formation( on erythrocytes), preventsthe formation of blood clots in the blood, increases stamina, reduces the risk of scar tissue formation during wound healing.
In addition, vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that improves cellular respiration and slows the aging of cells, especially skin cells.
essential oil of mint saturates the gel with healing menthol
2. Essential oil of mint
Mint oil contains a large amount of a substance called menthol.
Due to this, it seems to serve as a catalyst or "conductor", accelerating the ingress of other medicinal substances in the gel-cream of Horse Force into the deep layers of the skin and in the region of the diseased joints. In addition, mint oil gives a good relaxing effect.
3. Lavender oil
It increases the general tone of the body and positively affects the brain structures( aromatherapy!).
the composition of the product includes lavender oil
All together, the therapeutic substances in this gel cream have a pronounced analgesic effect in joint diseases, as well as with pains in ligaments and muscles of various origins.
The gel has a pleasant consistency and odor, so it can be used both as a grinder in the area of joints, and for toning general massage, and as a preparation for hygienic care of the skin of the body.
The method of applying the gel is simple: apply it to the skin in the area of the aching joint and lightly, gently move it into the skin. Repeat the procedure two times a day. In this case, the gel should not be applied to the damaged skin and it is important to avoid getting it on the mucous membranes.
This product is sold in pharmacies, but, of course, its availability needs to be specified, because it happens not always and not everywhere.

Means No.2: ZooVIP gel of double action( "horse gel")
ZooVIP gel of double action
As you can see from the name, originally the gel "ZooVIP", unlike the "Horsepower", was creatednot for the treatment of human diseases, but for caring for the joints, ligaments and skin of horses and ensuring hygienic care for these animals.
It's hard to say who came up with the idea of trying it on a man, but after all, painkillers - they're both painkillers for people and animals, right? Anyway, very soon this horse gel began to be used for diseases of the human joints, including arthrosis and arthritis.
The composition of this gel-cream Zoovip includes a few other medicinal substances, but the essence is this: the double effect of the gel is that it exerts on the skin and joints both a soothing and toning action - that is, by its mechanism this cooling-warminggel with joint pain.
Use the gel as follows. On a clean, washed skin, this remedy is applied in small amounts and with soft, light circular massaging movements rub it into the skin in the region of the affected joints.
Repeat this procedure 2-3 times a day. Best after the application of the gel, ensure the joint rest for half an hour - for example, just lie down. And for you rest, and medicine will work better.
Due to the fact that Zoovip is hypoallergenic and contains natural ingredients, after absorbing the gel into the skin, its residues can not be specially washed off. However, it is important not to apply it to damaged skin fragments and avoid getting onto mucous membranes.
How does this balm work? After rubbing into the skin first begin to act essential oils of mint and eucalyptus - they, again, they act as "conductors", improving the delivery of deeper layers of the skin with other medicinal substances.
gels can also be used for massage
After that, the extract of pepper and camphor, which warm up muscles, ligaments, joints and other tissues, comes into play. They reduce pain, increase immunity, promote increased blood circulation in the area of affected joints, which reduces stagnation of blood in these areas, accelerate the healing of injured tissues( provided that they are closed, ie, there are no skin defects and wounds).
The use of ZooVIP gel is indicated for both pain reduction in joints and for better recovery from injuries, bruising, ecchymoses( bruises), and bruises.
This product, of course, is not sold in pharmacies, becauseofficially this is still a drug for horses. Therefore, to look for it makes sense in pet stores. It is sold in bottles of 1000 and 500 ml. A half liter gel pack will cost you 300-400 rubles.

The main contraindications are the presence of allergies to the components of the drug and malignant neoplasms. In the absence of these contraindications and skin lesions, the remedy can be used without the slightest fear.
A horse's ointment for joints is called so for good reason. Indeed, a tool was developed to address the goals of veterinary medicine, and then adapted to the needs of the individual. Do not be intimidated by this. First, numerous reviews convince that the drug is effective and does not cause side effects, except for an allergic reaction with individual hypersensitivity to certain components.
The only thing to think about is the duration of the drug. The horse's ointment gives a very quick effect. This is due to the increased dosage of some components, which is designed for a large animal, rather than a human. Therefore, do not abuse the ointment.

The effectiveness and safety of the horse's remedy is due to the fact that they have the same effect as conventional pharmacy drugs. In composition, they are almost identical to most medications developed for humans and having the same effects.
Surprisingly, the products of veterinary pharmacy are usually much more natural and safer than conventional pharmacies.

Zoop VIP gel and horse power - joint care products
Joint diseases are quite common today, and their treatment is a long and not always effective process, even when it is under the supervision of an experienceddoctor. Therefore practically any new means for treatment of similar diseases are highly appreciated, especially if they give a steady effect. Some drugs are particularly distinguished for their naturalness, which is also important for some people who prefer natural remedies for pure chemistry.
Not so long ago new products appeared on the market - a healing gel for joints and veins "Horsepower" and a double action gel "Zoo VIP".Let's see what they are and how they work.
Therapeutic tool "Horsepower"
About gel "Horsepower" for joints often say that it is ointment or balm, its price is quite democratic - for a bottle in 500 ml - from 400 to 600 rubles( depending on the region), but reviewsabout its effectiveness
( low or high) is almost impossible to find - it's too soon it appeared. Much more often you come across advertising, and from it objectivity does not have to wait.
But according to the manufacturers, this remedy has a curative effect and is used for painful sensations caused by trauma and various diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Also this preparation has good prophylactic properties at high physical exertion - it allows to avoid muscle overstrain. Most often the gel "Horsepower" is used for the joints of the feet, because they suffer the most in this situation.
It is believed that the drug is completely natural, it does not use "chemistry", it is very simple to use and has no contraindications( except for individual intolerance to individual components of this product). At the same time, it includes only three active components.
Composition of the gel "Horsepower", its action and application of
So, this composition contains only three natural active components. These are:
- Vitamin E. Due to its presence, the gel has a positive effect primarily on the skin. So, wounds are healed faster, wound healing reduces the risk of scar tissue formation. In addition, the foot gel "Horsepower" is good because it positively affects the operation of blood vessels and blood formation( also the effect of this vitamin), thereby preventing the appearance of blood clots in the blood. At the same time, vitamin E itself is a powerful antioxidant that slows down the aging of cells and improves cellular respiration. In the case of using this remedy, this is most noticeable for skin cells. Essential oil of mint. The main active component of mint oil is menthol. It performs a double function - it gives a small cooling and relaxing effect( which allows to relieve tension from the muscles), and also serves as a kind of catalyst, due to which it accelerates into the deeper layers of the skin of other components of the gel-cream.
- Lavender oil. The presence of this component allows you to raise the general tone of the body, something akin to aromatherapy. It is used mainly in the perfume industry. So we can say that this is more of an "aesthetic" component than a therapeutic one.
According to the manufacturers, all these components together have a pronounced analgesic effect with pain in the muscles and ligaments, as well as with various joint diseases. It can be used for rubbing in the area of pain, for toning massage and as a skin care product.
It is also very simple to apply it - just apply it to the skin and rub it softly into the skin with gentle light movements. This procedure can be performed twice a day, but you should avoid getting the gel on the damaged skin and mucous membranes.
Gel Zoo VIP
It is also called the "Horse Gel".This is justifiable, since it was originally designed to care for the joints and ligaments of horses, and not for humans. It is not known who and in what situation it occurred to try this drug on a man, but now it is used in the treatment of various joint diseases in humans.
"Horse gel" for the joints is not too common, because any feedback about it - a rarity, it is more often necessary to deal with advertising. But according to the manufacturers, it has quite an interesting effect on the joint and the skin - both toning and soothing. Because it is called a double-action gel. In theory, this should have an effect, as a cooling-warming gel, which can be used for pain sensations in the joints caused by various diseases.
This gel contains only natural ingredients and is considered to be hypoallergenic, therefore its residues after complete absorption into the skin can not be washed off. However, the gel should not be applied to damaged skin. You can apply it 2-3 times a day, applying a small amount of gel and rubbing it with light circular movements, after which you need to give the joint a little rest( about half an hour).
The action of the remedy is based on the fact that, when rubbed into the skin, eucalyptus and mint oils first act as catalysts to accelerate the assimilation of other beneficial substances, and also have a cooling and relaxing effect. After that begins to act camphor and pepper extract, which have a warming effect, due to which the blood circulation improves, the edema decreases, the healing of damaged tissues is accelerated.
