[b]α-Bisabolol (alpha-Bisabolol) is a component found in what is considered higher quality (our oils do contain significant quantities of this important constituent).

[/b]Alpha-Bisabolol is a natural sesquiterpene alcohol from chamomile that is well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties in vivo. (-)-α-Bisabolol significantly inhibited 5-lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase-1 in human blood cells.
A study in the Naunyn Schmiedebergs Archives of Pharmacoogy, published. 2011 Aug 26 concluded α-Bisabolol had significant anti-inflammatory AND anti-nocieptive properties — meaning it reduced the perception of pain.
In an report published in the July 2007 journal of Cosmetics and Toiletries, researchers suggest the combination of α-Bisabolol containing German Chamomile, and Ginger essential oils would have a synergistic effect at inflammation reduction, as they appear to work through different pathways.
We include both these oils in our Athlete Magic, and you too can make a recipe containing these oils, and perhaps others for inflammation reduction.
