Actions and Spectrum:
magnesium salicylate is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used primarily to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. It is a combination of salicylic acid and magnesium, which work together to block the production of certain chemicals in the body that causes pain and inflammation.
magnesium salicylate’s exact mechanism of action is not entirely understood, but it is believed to inhibit the activity of the cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which are responsible for producing prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are chemicals produced by the body in response to injury or inflammation and are responsible for causing pain, fever, and inflammation.
magnesium salicylate has a broad spectrum of activity, meaning it can be used to treat various conditions involving pain and inflammation. It is most used to treat mild to moderate pain, such as headaches, menstrual cramps, and muscle aches. It also reduces inflammation associated with arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, and gout.
