Arthritis affects many people the world over. It is a painful condition and, unfortunately, one that so far has no cure. While research studies continue to be held with regards to the condition, people who suffer from it currently have to make do with relief, rather than cure. The problem is that finding relief, which comes in the form of painkillers, is associated with significant side effects as well. Unsurprisingly, and particularly because the condition is so common, there are numerous products out there that claim to offer relief in a natural way, thereby also avoiding the side effects. There are so many of those products out there, in fact, that it may feel somewhat overwhelming to find the one that is right for you. One such product is Blue Emu, which claims to use natural active ingredients that are easy to absorb into the skin, helping to provide relief from arthritic pain. This review will take a closer look at Blue Emus, and why you may want to consider it if you suffer from arthritis.

What Is Blue Emu and Who Produces It?

Blue Emu Original is a super strength cream based on blue emu oil. The product claims to provide pain relief for people who have any arthritis-related illness. This includes osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The product is manufactured by Nutrition & Fitness Inc., a company that has been around since 1988. They have made various pain relief products, including products for improving the health of the skin. Blue Emu is actually used by many physicians and a range of specialty therapists as well. There has been a lot of research into its main active ingredient, which has been found to be effective.

What’s In Blue Emu?

Blue Emu’s main active ingredient is emu oil. It is combined with a range of other natural ingredients, including Aloe Vera gel. This ensures that the formula is stronger than any other of its kind. It also contains stearic acid, cetyl alcohol, and water.

About Emu Oil

Unsaturated fatty acids make up around 70% of Emu oil. With the biggest percentage being a mono-unsaturated omega 9 fatty acid, oleic acid. The remaining percentage is made up somewhat of linolenic acid, which is an omega 3 fatty acid (around 2%) and linoleic acid, an omega 6 fatty acid (around 20%). Medical studies undertaken using rodents indicate that Emu oil could possibly help heal wounds while having anti-inflammatory effects.

Being a natural transdermal carrier, Emu oil is very effective and penetrating deep into your skin. This was one of the main reasons Emu oil was so highly regarded by the Aborigines, the absorption rate of it is astounding. Our skin contains numerous fatty acids, Emu oil is made up of nothing but these fatty acids. For healthy and protected skin we need a good supply of omega 3, 6 and 8 fatty acids. Thanks to the high absorption rate of Emu oil, the anti-inflammatory action is able to get right at the core of pain. Thanks to other ingredients that are added to it, Emu oil becomes a very effective answer to joint and muscle pain. You may wish to use Emu oil for numerous reasons. A common use of Emu oil is in helping alleviate the pain of joint conditions, such as arthritis for example. It is also great at treating acne and other skin issues, psoriases responds very well to Emu oil. You can even incorporate it into a healing regime for scars and burns.

How Does It Work?

A recent study into the benefits of emu oil for pain relief has conclusively shown that pain scores were significantly lower after usage. The study took eight weeks to complete, during which time one group used emu oil and another group used a placebo. Those that used emu oil noticed positive benefits of a medium to large rating within four weeks of using the product. Over the following four weeks, the pain reduced even further. There have been numerous other studies that had similar results. Because the product is in the form of a cream, it is easy for the skin to absorb it to relieve pain.

How Do You Use Blue Emu?

Because emu oil has so many positive benefits, it is recommended to use it consistently for at least two weeks. After this period, the product can be used as and when required. The cream should be applied to the painful area three times daily.

Does It Have Any Side Effects?

Blue Emu contains mainly natural ingredients. However, it also contains some ingredients such as cetyl alcohol that has been known to cause allergic reactions. The product does not claim to be 100% natural or organic, however. Furthermore, it is very rare for allergic reactions to occur. If it does occur, you should immediately stop using the product. If Blue Emu is accidentally ingested, you should seek emergency medical help.

Blue Emu has developed a range of products and they are used by massage therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, physical therapists, and other medical professionals the world over. Its main active ingredient is emu oil, which is a natural product that has gone through a range of clinical trials, many of them recent, which have conclusively demonstrated that it has a positive impact on pain.

Furthermore, Blue Emu has been positively reviewed by thousands of customers on an array of shopping platforms and third party review websites. This is further proof that, while side effects are technically possible, they are very rare. Considering that it has helped people with a range of painful conditions, including sports injuries, osteoarthritis, and even rheumatoid arthritis, it is clear that the product is highly beneficial.

What I Liked About Blue Emu

  • It also contains aloe vera gel.

  • It does not sting or burn to use the product.

  • It is an odor free product.

  • It is non-greasy.

  • It is backed by scientific evidence.

  • It has received many positive reviews.

  • It is used by various medical professionals.

  • The company offers regular special offers.

What I Didn’t Like About Blue Emu

  • Because there are many non-natural ingredients in the product, allergic reactions can occur. That said, they are very rare.

  • When there are no special offers, it can be quite an expensive product.

  • It is not 100% natural or organic.

  • It is not suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

The Final Verdict

Nobody should have to live in pain. However, with arthritic conditions becoming increasingly common, it seems that it is also something that people need to find solutions for. While there are pharmaceutical drugs for pain, they usually have side effects that people would want to avoid. A product like Blue Emu offers that alternative. It uses natural emu oil as its main active ingredient, which is scientifically proven to benefit arthritic pain and sports injuries. In fact, it is so effective that medical professionals use it. If you suffer from arthritic pain, you have nothing to lose by at least trying this product. 100% recommend.

I’m 62 years old and an avid golfer. I broke two fingers on my left hand playing football in high school and have recently developed arthritis pain in both fingers making holding a golf club very difficult. i was considering consulting with a Rheumatologist but decided to try the Blu Emu first. i am so glad that i did. after two weeks of use my pain has decreased from a level 7 to about a level 3 and I can actually enjoy golf again. Thank you Blu Emu!

This product works for me. I have terrible arthritic hips. It’s not a cure but definitely helps control the pain.

Our family has used Blue-Emu ointment for at least
10 years. My wife and I have been disabled for 20
years. We have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia,
chronic fatigue, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, stenosis (all but 2 of my disks are either bulging or herniated), degenerative disk disease, facet degeneration, among a bunch of other medical issues), sciatica, and terrible back spasms. We discovered Blue-Emu ointment, tried it. I didn’t think it would work, but lo and behold it reduced my pain where applied.

I have tried other brands, but they didn’t work. Some brands gave me a chemical type burn all over my back. I use it, my wife uses it, and my children use it. I’ve been doing some research, and am very interested in Blue-Emu capsules. The reading I have done indicates that Blue-Emu oil is beneficial for dozens of conditions, besides pain relief. See WebMD.

My sister brought me some blue emu. I have rheumatoid arthritis and have been hurting so bad for the last 4 days. My legs just ached, especially my bad knee. Within a few minutes I felt relief. I am now putting it all over. My little fingers have been so stiff every morning I could barely close my hands. I am feeling very flexible now. So excited about not being in constant pain.

I just had an X-ray and have bone on bone on the hip! I was told to either have a Cortisone shot or hip replacement. I keep putting both off, but am leaning to the shot. In the meantime, I am using Blue-Emu especially at night if I wake up and my hip is hurting. Seems to work as I go back to sleep.

Painful Feet
April 13, 2017 10:08 PM

I have planter fasciitis in my feet and can’t stand the pain in the mornings when I get out of bed. Not to mention one foot in particular would wake me in the night aching.

I was complaining about it while getting a pedicure one day and this nice lady beside me said she worked at the post office and was on her feet all day. She asked if I’d ever used Blue Emu. I told her I’d never heard of it.

As soon as I was done with my pedicure, I immediately went to Walmart and purchased a jar of the Blue Emu Super strength. I rub it on my feet right before bed at night and it’s amazing. I don’t know what it does but I’m so grateful for the lady who told me about it.

I have been using Original BLUE-EMU super strength for 2 weeks just like the instructions says. I used it twice daily. I put on lots like the label says. I have pain in my hand. I have had no results from this product. It is very expensive and not worth the price that I paid for it.

Came home to get relief and almost broke my wrist opening the jar. After spending 30 min trying to open the jar, found a wrench’s to remove top.

It’s great!! if one can get it open.

Disturbed old man haha.

This product worked instantly on my arthritic hand BUT in five minutes the pain was back. I suppose we are to keep applying it? Every five minutes won’t work for me

This product didn’t do anything for the pain in my knee.

January 29, 2017 2:32 PM

I have a stiff and sore neck. I’ve tried many products and got no relief. I saw Blue Emu on the shelf and decided to try it. Doesn’t work for me. Guess I’ll keep on looking.
Actually I don’t feel any heat from any of the products I tried.

I have bilateral neuropathy of ankles and feet, with numbness of the feet. I lived with burning, stinging, fire like pain for years that kept me awake at night. Finally two years ago a friend suggested that I use Blu Emu on my feet 30 minutes before I go to bed. I applied it that night, with immediate relief. I’ve use it since that time intermittently, but if I start to feel the burning stinging pain in my feet at night, I apply this and within 20 minutes I can go to sleep without the burning pain. I like it because it is odorless and does not leave greasy stains on sheets, but most of all it really works for my neuropathy.
