How Cobra Venom, Nyloxin's Active Ingredient, Works to Relieve Pain
Millions suffer from acute or chronic pain every year and the effects of pain exact a tremendous cost on our country in health care costs, rehabilitation and lost worker productivity, as well as the emotional and financial burden it places on patients and their families.
While acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to possible injury and the need to take care of yourself, chronic pain is different. chronic pain persists. Pain signals keep firing in the nervous system for weeks, months, even years.
Nyloxin provides all-natural anti-inflammatory analgesic pain relief that is non-toxic, non-narcotic, non-addictive, non-steroidal and contains no aspirin or acetaminophen.
Nyloxin is 100% Safe to Relieve Pain
Nyloxin is believed to work by targeting some of the same receptors on nerve cells that are also recognized by nicotine. These receptors are found in nerves outside the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and they are also found on cells of the immune system. Specialized proteins in Nyloxin block the action of acetylcholine, a major stimulating neurotransmitter in the nervous system and activator of the inflammatory pathways. As a result, the pain and inflammation pathways are temporarily shut off. In some clinical studies, Nyloxin pain relieving products could provide prolonged chronic muscle and joint relief.
Nyloxin in Traditional Medicine*
In ancient China, cobra venom had many traditional uses and purported health benefits. Reportedly the venom was used to treat a variety of conditions. In the Indian Unani system of medicine, cobra venom has been used as a tonic, aphrodisiac, hepatic stimulant and for revival in collapsed conditions. In India and China, such venoms are administered at specialized medical centers and for an extensive array of applications.
Today in Traditional Chinese Medicine, cobra venom sees its application mainly to the control of pain. A purified neurotoxin from the cobra was introduced to market as an analgesic by Kunming Institute of Zoology in 1978. A modified version of this neurotoxin (Fu Fang Ke Tong Ning) was developed and put into market in 2000. The new drug became a mixture of cobrotoxin, ibuprofen, and Qu Ma Du. Qu Ma Du (believed to be Tramadol) is a narcotic analgesic with low addictive potential. The new drug takes effects faster, long lasting and is safe. This drug is now also used as for treatment of drug addiction in the Chinese province of Yunnan.
Nyloxin in American Medicine*
The medical application of cobra venom was incorporated into the Materia Medica in the 1800s along with several other snake venoms. In the early 1900s, Calmette (of BCG fame) investigated the use of cobra venom. It was subsequently applied clinically to subjects where it established a reputation in France for relieving pain. In 1936, Macht, a researcher within the pharmaceutical company, Westcott, Hynson and Dunning, showed that cobra venom, when injected in minute doses, produced analgesic effects that were superior to morphine in activity. In fact, cobra venom was employed when morphine was no longer effective or when patients became addicted to the opiate. Cobra venom proved to be 80% effective in the clinic for the treatment of headache and arthritis pain and it allowed long-term control of chronic pain conditions without addictive problems. A feature of this venom product was its slow onset of analgesic activity however its activity is prolonged. In 1938, acceptance of homeopathic medicine including cobra venom was incorporated into the Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act sponsored by Royal Copeland. In the latter part of the last century cobra venoms were studied for the treatment of severe pain as well as many other conditions.
Current Medical Research using Cobra Venom*
Today, cobra venom is being studied for a variety of potential applications. The Nutra Pharma subsidiary, ReceptoPharm, and other researchers have definitively proven that cobra venom contains constituents that may control pain and inflammation. Researchers in China are examining the possibility that cobra venom can be used to treat drug addiction. The National Cancer Institute in Italy has participated in Chinese clinical trials to assess the efficacy of cobra toxins in controlling post operative pain and moderate to severe cancer pain.
