Before All Natural Pain Relief PowerStrips became a sponsor, I tested the product for myself to see if it works.
What are PowerStrips? PowerStrips is an over the counter pain management product. It is an adhesive strip that contains fermented red Korean ginseng, colloidal silver, Alpha 3 CMP marine phytoplankton and germanium.
How to use PowerStrips
They are simple to use: Just peel off one side of the backing, apply the sticky side to the affected area, smooth it out. Then peel off the other side of the backing and press down some more. Keep it on for one to two days at the most then replace.
I was having some pain on my right knee after starting a running program. I had it checked out and the doctor suggested wrapping it for support and taking some over the counter pain reliever. I didn’t want to keep taking Advil or Tylenol, so I tried out the PowerStrips. I am the skeptical sort and always test out products I mention, and I was trying out the PowerStrips before they became a sponsor.
First thing I noticed when I opened the package was a slight pungent scent. The best way to describe it is, it smells like herbs. (I’m told the scent is from the Fermented Red Korean Ginseng ingredient.)
I applied the PowerStrip on the knee and waited.
After about an hour I could feel the knee pain easing up. I could actually feel some relief from the pain, just as I would have had I taken the Advil or aspirin. I left the strip on for a couple of days.
After that I knew it was time to replace it, as I was starting to feel some discomfort. I replaced the strip and again, I felt better. My knee is better these days; but if they act up again, I would use PowerStrips all over again. (Note: I am not a medical professional, so if you have chronic pain, see a doctor – this article is just to relate how this particular product worked for my knee pain.)
I don’t mind taking one or two OTC pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen but taking too many pain relief pills for an extended period of time can cause life threatening illness such as heart or circulation problems, intestinal bleeding, liver problems etc.
I was telling my brother about them and interestingly enough, it turns out one of his colleagues swear by PowerStrips for his chronic back pain. I think PowerStrips provide a good alternative for pain relief. They are light-weight, easy to use and have a two year shelf life. For these reasons, they would make a good addition to your first aid and emergency kit.
