Provant treats pain two ways:
- ANTI-NOCICEPTIVE ANALGESIA: by inducing endogenous opioids (endorphins, enkephalins, dynorphins), which turn off pain signals at the nerve ending.
- ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: by up-regulating anti-inflammatory mediators, and down-regulating pro-inflammatory mediators; these include cytokine and edema related genes.
