What is Celadrin®?
Have you asked what Celadrin® is? Celadrin® is advertised as a product made for joint pain relief. It is also promoted as a muscle pain relief. It currently comes in a cream, tablet or capsule form. I am reviewing it because it is advertised as a natural treatment for your aches and pains.
Since it is not actually considered a drug, it did not have to be approved by the FDA. Therefore any statements made on the website celadrininfo.com have a FDA disclaimer. It is promoted as an analgesic.
What are the Ingredients in Celadrin®?
Apparently this is not public information, because the product itself is, according to the manufacturer’s claims, “a patented, clinically tested, scientifically” combination of natural esterified oils. The company also describes them as a special cetylated esterified fatty acids.
What, you may ask, are cetylated esterified fatty acids? Further information is included on the bottle of capsules that I have. The fatty acids they list are: cetyl myristoleate, cetyl myristate, cetyl palmitoleate, cetyl laute, cetyl palmitate, and cetyl oleate. Still in the dark? Me too.
From my research this is what I found out. Cetylated esterified fatty acids are made in a laboratory. Cetylated or acetylated (I’m not sure if I am using the terms correctly; I wasn’t able to find what I wanted.), means the molecule contains an added acetyl group. This group is in aspirin, which enhances its anti-inflammatory effectiveness.
Fatty acids in our body work to lubricate the cells. As we age, our bodies don’t lubricate as well. So a product that has lubricating and anti-inflammatory properties may help to “oil” our joints and reduce inflammation. For more information you might check out this article from medicinenet.com.
Who is Celadrin® for?
This product is promoted as providing relief to joints and muscles that hurt and ache. I have seen it advertised for:
- Achy muscles after a workout
- Minor aches and pains
- Muscle strain due to injury
- Possible relief of osteoarthritis
I have some arthritis in my hands. But I bought the product for the nerve pain in my buttock. Since this is nerve pain, it is chronic, and a product like this doesn’t really address my cause. But it does provide temporary minor relief for my aches, so I think it is worth trying.
So it is for anyone with these complaints, and especially those of us who are in the senior category! Because, the added feature of lubrication provides some relief for our old joints.
Why Should I use Celadrin®?
Besides the conditions listed above, this product is available without a prescription and contains only naturally occurring ingredients. I can attest to it providing relief of minor pain complaints. There are testimonials on the celadrininfo.com website of people who tell about how the product has helped them.
If you are looking for a product with natural ingredients to relieve your minor pains, then Celadrin® might be for you. I find it gives me relief so that I can work on my websites. Keyboarding and using the mouse can be painful and this product gives me a temporary remedy.
Be advised that the product is available in a cream and also oral tablets or capsules. The herbal pharmacist (herbalpharmacist.com), David Foreman, recommends taking both the oral and cream treatment at the same time.
Here’s a video with David Foreman talking a bit about Celadrin® Advanced Joint Health. I find him engaging and informative. Which is why I included his website link above. You would do well to check him out.
Are There Side Effects?
There doesn’t seem to be much research about the possible side effects of this product. I can attest to it causing some intestinal discomfort for me. But I have tummy issues to begin with, so I have to be careful what supplements I use. So that may just be me. I have tried taking just one capsule of 1050 mg instead of the recommended two. See what works for you.
On the other hand, I did find some information about drug interactions with Vitamin E, and fat soluble vitamins. See this link for information from WebMD. Though not extensively researched, it is better to be advised. Talk to your pharmacist or doctor.
For further research, I recommend again that you visit their site. Here is the research page link to the Celadrin® website.
If you want further relief from pain, I reviewed a few heating pads, which can provide some temporary pain relief. See Best Heating Pads for Back Pain.
When to Use Celadrin®?
The cream is recommended for when you have joint or muscle pain. There is no RDA for the oral supplement. My bottle says two capsules, but I try to take only one. Again, because I have stomach issues.
The herbal pharmacist recommends you take the capsules or tablets along with applying the cream. Apply the cream when the pain is particularly annoying. He also recommends you use the cream before going to bed for a more restful night. And we all want that!
Who Makes Celadrin®?
I don’t know why this should matter, but I had a bit of a struggle to find who makes this product. On the bottle it says distributed by WN Pharmaceuticals, Inc., in Everett, WA. But the tube of cream says WN Pharmaceuticals, Inc., in Monroe, WA. These two cities are about 16 miles apart.
But the website about Celadrin® lists Pharmachem Labs as the distributor. They do state that they have processing and manufacturing facilities at locations in North America. So maybe that is the connection.
Bottom line, I didn’t find anything disturbing about either of these names, so that makes me happy.
Purchase Celadrin® Through this Link
I have an affiliate account with Walmart. If you click on this link, I will receive a small fee for referring you. You can also shop for the cream by searching the link. Otherwise you can find it in most drug stores.
I am not a healthcare professional. I am just a fellow pain sufferer who is constantly researching remedies for my pain. I recommend you talk with your doctor about taking this product or using the cream. It isn’t a cheap product, so I would hate for you to purchase it and then not be able to use it.
