What is Spiroflor?
Spiroflor from VSM is a homoeopathic pharmaceutical which helps with stiff and painful muscles as well as joints. The Spiroflor gels and cremes contain natural ingredients, such as symphytum (comfrey) and rhus toxicodendron (poison ivy). These substances absorb deeply into the skin where they have a soothing effect on the underlying muscles and joints. The botanical ingredients promote the blood circulation and therefore ease the pain, dissolve cramps and provide relaxation. Stiff muscles and joints become more flexible this way.
What is Spiroflor used for?
Spiroflor cream or gel is used for muscle and/or joint pain, which is caused by a congestion due to intensive physical activities, for instance. This product can be used when the patient has a stiff neck, a lumbago, extravastations or certain sprains. Furthermore, you can use Spiroflor in order to prevent sore muscles after working out. Spiroflor is available in the following variations:
