Releva | Ormed
RELEVA, a Microspheres extraction of herbs and colloidal metals, is useful for pain treatment even in patients with sensitive digestive tracts. The capsules are recommended primarily for joint and connective tissue pain, but may also help with headaches and various other complaints for which aspirin or other OTC analgesics are indicated.*
Developed by Iderne pharmaceuticals in France, Microspheres (also called Phytomicrospheres) are made using a special plant ber that acts as a carrier to bring herbal constituents into the blood stream unattenuated. As a result, nothing is lost from the extraction process. The microspheres contain no excipients, and they transport the phytochemicals to the serum without degradation from the digestive tract.*
The Microspheres process has been designated an ethical medical modality that will replace the use of tinctures in phytotherapy practice by the European Union. Iderne Pharmaceuticals has produced a number of compounds including one designated as a treatment for diabetes by the European Union*
Releva is intended for joint pain because the scientific literature on Devil’s claw is weighted with arthritis studies, but it has wide-ranging analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. Meadowsweet is the original source of aspirin, but does not upset the stomach. It has been used for many types of pain, which is how aspirin got put on the map as a go-to pain reliever. Most users claim that two capsules of Releva are the equivalent of an ibuprofen. One patient said that four capsules were the equivalent of a Naproxen for his intestinal and lumbar pain. Even when the Releva alone is not sufficient to control pain, it helps

Devil’s Claw (Harpagophytum procumbens)
Harpagophytum is used as an anti-in ammatory in rheumatic disorders esp. in diabetic patients and those with cardiac abnormalities; and for tendinitis, sprains, and arthritis. It is an analgesic for joint disease, back pain and headache. It also is a mild COX-2 inhibitor, inhibits TXB2 release; and has antioxidant activity, clears free radi- cals and suppresses enhanced production of metalloproteinases by inhibiting pro-in ammatory cytokines.
Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria)
Various parts of this plant have been used medicinally for centuries, primarily for relief of pain and fever. Other uses have included relief of gastrointestinal complaints, including peptic ulceration and diarrhea. Its anti-in am- matory effects can be accounted for by the fact that all parts of the plant contain several salicylate compounds, including salicylic acid itself. In 1897, when Felix Hoffmann produced acetylsalicylic acid, he used salicin produced from meadowsweet plants. This led to the development of the brand name Aspirin, which was derived from the botanical name at the time for meadowsweet, Spiraea ulmaria.
Because of the high levels of salicylates, preparations containing meadowsweet extracts are contraindicated in patients taking warfarin or other anticoagulants, and also in those already taking NSAIDs. Extracts of the plant have been known to cause bronchospasm, therefore caution is advised in its use by asthma sufferers.
Black Currant leaf (Ribes nigrum)
Widely used in Europe for a variety of indications, Black currant extract has been studied for its effects on reducing in ammation, but not damaging cartilage or other connective tissue. One study examined the effect
of black currant leaves on different prodelphinidins, on the proteoglycans (PGs), type II collagen (coll. II) and prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) production by differentiated human chondrocytes cultivated in long term (12 days) and in clusters as well as their inhibition potential on COX-1 and COX-2 in vitro.
Most people in the U.S. have heard about the use of colloidal silver for infections. Many practitioners of French phytoaromatherapy use a variety of other colloidal metals to stimulate coenzyme activity of various biochemical reactions. Oligotherapy, the therapeutic use of microdoses of these electrolytically activated metals, was devel- oped more than 100 years ago by Dr. Jacques Ménétrier, who discovered an anti-allergic effect from microscop- ic amounts of manganese.
French phytoaromatherapy doctors attribute the legendary bene t of copper bracelets for arthritis sufferers to the anti-in ammatory properties of colloidal copper. Dr. Ménétrier used a combination of manganese and cop- per colloidal metals for what he called the “arthrotuberculous diathesis,” a constitutional type of patient prone to arthritis and in ammatory rheumatism.
