Nelsons, a 150 year old privately owned company and the UK's largest manufacturer of natural healthcare products, introduces Homeopathic H+Care™ Hemorrhoid Cream. H+care is a new hemorrhoid cream that provides soothing relief from hemorrhoid pain, itching and burning without the use of vasoconstrictors - an ingredient often found in the leading brands. Vasoconstrictors can negatively affect other health issues like high blood pressure.
While not a popular topic of conversation, it is a condition that approximately 32 million people-or 50% of the US population over the age of 50-experience, usually peaking between ages 45-65.
Hemorrhoid Products & Vasoconstrictors
Several hemorrhoid products on the market contain an ingredient called a vasoconstrictor (an agent that causes a rise in blood pressure by constricting the blood vessels) such as phenylephrine to decrease swelling irritation. Such products' labels advise that the product not be used without first asking a physician if the user is one of the nearly 67 million American adults who have high blood pressure.
Now there is H+care.
H+care Hemorrhoid Cream provides soothing relief from hemorrhoids without the use of vasoconstrictors, steroids, anesthetics or parabens. With aloe in the base, H+care Hemorrhoid Cream:
Relieves burning, itching, pain and discomfort
Protects irritated tissue
"There are literally millions of American's who suffer from hemorrhoids while managing high blood pressure. With no vasoconstrictors, H+care is an effective option for hemorrhoid relief," said Nelsons Senior Brand Manager Katrina Eichenfeldt. "H+care is also free of steroids and anesthetics, ingredients that can sometimes exacerbate hemorrhoids symptoms and increase discomfort."
H+care Hemorrhoid Cream (1 oz/$9.99) and H+care Hemorrhoid Wipes with Witch Hazel for pain relief (54/$9.99) are now available at Walgreens stores nationwide.
