Recent press release:

“It was announced early this month(April 2013) by Thentix International that THENTIX Pain Formula (Re-named Muscle and Joint Formula) now has an NPN(Natural Product Number) from Health Canada. This means that this unique formulation is now licensed as a NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCT. This special certification requires the formula be produced in a government approved manufacturing facility using strict production guidelines.”  

(This was formerly labelled and known as Thentix Pain Formula or Thentix Pain Cream.)

What is Thentix – Muscle and Joint Formula?

Thentix – Muscle and Joint Formula is a unique topical pain relieving cream that contains anti-arthritic and anti-spasmodic properties with the ability to target serious pain and penetrate deep below the skin. Thentix is formulated with only natural ingredients that have been used for centuries as pain relievers by natural healers. No harsh chemicals, which can be abrasive and damaging to skin over time are found in Thentix.

How Pain Formula Works:

Thentix Muscle and Joint Formula takes advantage of the special physiological properties of its three active ingredients: MSM, Capsicum Oleresin and Methyl Salicylate to achieve its incredible pain-destroying effects.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is a source of sulfur, a mineral element critical to the normal function and structure of the body. Sulfur is a raw material of the protein and connective tissue that make up our body mass, for enzymes that conduct countless chemical reactions and for powerful natural compounds that protect us against toxicity and harmful oxidative stress. Sulfur also has a long history of healing.

Capsicum Oleresin is the molecular fire substance found within hot peppers. I works by blocking the neurotransmitter substance “P” production and by blocking C-Fiber or pain-fiber conduction, thereby reducing neurogenic inflammation and pain response. This ingredient works directly to decrease pain at the site of your nerves.

Methyl Salicylate naturally ocurs in Wintergreen leaves and Sweet Birch. It is commonly used externally as an antiseptic. This all natural ingredient (product) is gaining in popularity for its ablity to deeply penetrate the human skin. It is used in Thentix as a carrier to deliver the medicine to the origins of pain. It also delivers an immediate cooling effect when first applied to skin. Thentix Pain Formula is able to quickly and effectively deliver the relief right to the site of pain causing nerve endings.

What Muscle and Joint Formula Does:

The pain formula provides super-fast relief of general muscle soreness, back pain and tendonitis including immediate pain relief from arthritic conditions, bursitis, stiff joints and leg and muscle cramps. Thentix has also been found to bring relief to sufferers of carpal tunnel syndrome. As secondary benefit Thentix can help reduce or eliminate the need for narcotic pain relievers.

How to Use Muscle & Pain Formula:

Thentix’s specially formulated cream couldn’t be easier to use. It is easily administered by gently rubbing a small amount directly onto the affected area until it is completely absorbed into the skin. Apply 3 or 4 times daily for hours of uninterrupted pain relief.

Experience Thentix “Cool-Heat” Sensation:

Within seconds you will feel the “Cool-Heat” of Thentix effectively penetrating deep into the tissue of the area being treated and you know that quick relief is onthe way. Thenix causes increased blood flow in the affected area promoting fast healing and is known to contain analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. In addition to reducing pain and swelling Thentix can help increase range of motion in stiff joints.

No Stains or Offensive Odors:

Thentix’s special non-greasy formula will not stain clothes or bedsheets and will not leave unwanted residue on your skin. Thentix is absorbed completely into the skin and the mild menthol aroma dissipates quickly and is not offensive.

Thentix Muscle & Joint Formula is Safe:

Thentix has been shown to be extremely safe and effective for all age groups. Consult your physician before using is on children under 2 years of age and pregnant or nursing mothers. Wash your hands after each application. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. If contact does occur, flush thoroughly with clean water. Thentix Pain Formula is for external use only – do not ingest internally. If skin irritation occurs discontinue use immediately. Like all medications, keep out of reach of children.

Here is a basic list of the ingredients for the Muscle/Joint Formula.  Below that are some pointers on use and application.

It was certified by Health Canada around 2011 as 100% natural. (You can see the NPN number on the tube.)


Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) – an analgesic, it helps to numb

Menthol Crystals – commonly used for natural pain relief

Capsicum Frutescens – also known as cayenne pepper, has anti-inflammatory properties and as such is good for natural pain relief.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – natural sulphurs for swelling and inflammation

Tea Tree(Melaleuca Altemifolia) oil – known for its healing and pain relief properties

Shea butter – From the nut of the Shea Tree

Aloe vera and Honey – Many pain relief products advise against rubbingon the skin too much but partly because of these ingredients, one cantake the time to properly work the product into the tissues.

Sunflower seed oil
Coconut oil
Steric acid – emulsifier – inert

Cetyl Alcohol – emulsifier – inert
Eucalyptus – natural pain reliever

Thentix Muscle & Joint Formula comes in a 7 ounce tube.  We used to have it in a small 4 ounce bottle but some people with arthritic hands were having difficulty so we changed it to the tube.

If you unscrew the cap you will see a small foil that is designed to be ripped off.  If you haven’t done that already, leave it be.  Screw the cap back on and take a safety pin or stick pin and poke a very small hole so that it lines up with the hole in the cap.  This way you can control the amount used and you don’t waste.

I generally suggest people to start with a pea sized amount.  A larger area such as a hip or the back will usually require more.  Experiment to get the right amount for you.  The key is to gently massage it in until it is completely absorbed.  Until you don’t feel it any more on the skin.  Some people will feel some warmth from the capsicum.  After a few minutes you will, hopefully, feel a coolness from the Wintergreen and dissipation of the pain.  Most applications will give you several hours of relief.  Everyone is different and you may not get the same exact amount of relief from one day to the next.

CAUTION: Wintergreen is also not recommended for small children, pregnant women, nursing moms and epileptics.

Apply as needed.
