Concept Laboratories Discover Use of Nanotechnology Greatly Enhances Effects of Topical Pain Relievers

Following 15 years of research and development of topical pain relief products, Concept Laboratories, Inc. discovered that the use of nanotechnology greatly enhances the effects of topical pain relievers. Teaming their most high performance formulas with a nanosphere delivery system, Concept Laboratories finally solved the problem of short-lived pain relief. The MyOmega(R) pain relief line is the first of its kind, using a sustained delivery system to target localized pain with FDA-approved ingredients like Menthol, Camphor and Capsaicin.

Inspired by the growing problem of chronic and acute pain, Concept Laboratories revolutionized their most effective pain relieving formulas in hopes of improving the quality of life for millions of people. Few are aware of the devastating effects of chronic pain. Nearly 80 million Americans suffer from chronic pain in one form or other(1). In the United States alone, over one billion workdays per year are lost due to pain conditions. Conditions as simple as untreated backaches drive up the cost of healthcare by increasing emergency room visits and the length of hospital stays. The financial burden of under-treated pain is enormous, costing the United States government an estimated $100 billion dollars annually due to increased healthcare expenses, lost income, and lost productivity (1998 study)(2). The emotional burden is equally disheartening.

Combating Chronic and Acute Pain

"Despite the explosion of technologic advancement over the last twenty years, the value of several natural and ancient remedies are continuing to hold up to current treatment outcomes," commented Jesse Eisler MDPhD, University of Connecticut. Physicians like Dr. Eisler consistently prefer natural topical pain relievers like Capsaicin, but the effects don't always last long enough. Concept Laboratories, Inc. responded with MyOmega(R), the first line of pain relievers to enhance the effects of natural, topical pain relievers with a timed-release delivery system. The result is six full hours of soothing relief.

A Safe, Effective Pain Management Plan

Choosing a topical pain reliever like MyOmega(R) is ideal because it offers a healthy alternative to pills and pain relief patches. Seemingly harmless drugs like Acetaminophen and Methyl Salicylate have potentially fatal effects. Acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol(R) and other commonly prescribed pain relievers, has been linked to liver disease. Methyl Salicylate, a topical analgesic found in the likes of Bengay(R) and Icy Hot(R), can lead to fatal overdose if applied excessively. MyOmega(R) deters excessive application by avoiding the use of Methyl Salicylate and using a gradual release philosophy to naturally activate potent pain relievers throughout the day.

The secret behind MyOmega(R)'s extended release is a nanosphere-encapsulated cooling system. Each nanosphere within the IcePearls(TM) system has a designated release time. Some nanospheres are activated right away, releasing the cooling complex as soon as MyOmega(R) is applied. Other nanospheres are encapsulated within microspheres, which have barriers of varying thicknesses. When the barriers dissolve, the cooling complex is released. As a result, the cooling sensation is felt anywhere from 20 minutes to six hours following application.

MyOmega(R) is also bursting with highly regarded anti-inflammatories including Omegas 3, 6 and 9, Acai and Arnica Extracts, Rosemary Oil, and soothing Aloe Vera. Unlike most pain relieving ointments, the lightweight cream glides on like your favorite moisturizer. MyOmega(R) also comes in a spray form to target hard-to-reach areas, delivering powerful bursts of pain relieving actives all day long.
