Many associate Arnica with the healing of bruises, which of course it does, but did you know it also has many other uses? For example, it can be used to relieve pain relief for those suffering stiff neck, shoulders and other muscle pains, joint sprains and strains.
Our Atrogel® Arnica Gel is made using Arnica montana, a plant which is very difficult to cultivate. Many manufacturers choose to harvest wild Arnica, hence it is now protected in many parts of Europe.
After investing in 15 years of research, Bioforce were able to determine the perfect climate and soil for Arnica montana to flourish in. This fussy plant requires a lot of TLC. Constant weeding is necessary as Arnica does not spread out across the ground. It also needs to be hand harvested as the flower is the only part used in Atrogel®. The use of a machine would mean too much stalk been taken. Also, we don’t want to disturb the butterflies too much!
The yield from each crop is low as we only take the flower, which must be used fresh from harvest to give the most potent tincture. Therefore acres of countryside are covered in the bright yellow flowers.
