Nature is the best heritage that human beings have nothing more and nothing less because it has an infinity of plants that are very beneficial for health. Sometimes we ignore everything that a simple leaf of a plant can do for us, which is a lot. Among these vegetables is Arnica, a plant with origins in Central Europe and which has been used since ancient times as an anti-inflammatory.
This gift of nature is also known as Arnica montana or mountain tobacco and is only recommended in external use (as an ointment or oil) but never as an infusion because it can cause intoxication, dizziness, headaches, vomiting and even diarrhea.
Likewise, this flower belongs to the Asteraceae family (like chamomile or calendula) and has a very striking appearance, with a light green and hairy stem that can reach 40 cm in height, thick leaves, a beautiful orange-yellow flower and an aroma that is very reminiscent of chamomile.
This anti-inflammatory that nature gives us is also known as "the flower of athletes" since it has multiple properties on muscle tissues, helping their recovery after a session of physical effort. Arnica is a natural alternative for anyone who needs to prepare their muscles and ligaments to avoid injuries produced on a day-to-day basis or due to physical exercise.

It is a natural analgesic: its content of flavonoids, phenolic acids and amacin among others (rich antioxidants), helps to relieve headaches, joint and muscle pain, as well as pain from injuries and bruises.
Antibacterial or antimicrobial: its healing power prevents bacteria from developing their activity. It acts quickly and effectively on red, irritated or itchy areas.
Thanks to all these properties, this plant has become an essential of natural remedies to take care of the muscles and other tissues of our body.
