A stable first aid essential. SwellDOWN is a clay poultice that quickly takes heat out of inflammation, reducing swelling and overall leg soreness. Can be used on broken skin and is easy to wash off.
SwellDOWN’s special mixture of montmorillonite clay and unique ingredients has a cooling effect on injuries often caused by hard knocks or jarring. The clay, used as a poultice, draws out heat and reduces swelling commonly generated at damaged sites to aid a more rapid recovery. It is fast, effective and an excellent tightener around knees, ankles and tendons.
SwellDOWN contains no substances in concentrations that breach the rules of racing or competition. The natural combination of wet clay, essential oils and minerals has a cooling effect on the skin. Heat produced by exercise or injury is drawn out at a rapid rate, limiting hypoxic (lack of oxygen) damage and reducing the risk of oedema (fluid retention) and muscle damage, thereby aiding recovery. It is of benefit for after training, trialling and postrace, following events or exercise, travelling, during the first sign of inflammation and can be used to draw out stone bruises.

For maximum results wrap with moist paper (preferably brown paper or newspaper). Apply Kelato’s EnduroWRAP cohesive bandage to hold in place.
