Biofreeze products provide numerous benefits for therapy, exercise and pain relief. With a 86% five-star rating on amazon and over 2,000 reviews, Biofreeze pain relief gel has been well received by people suffering from muscle and joint pain and even migraines. Glowing reviews of Biofreeze have been written on WebMD with many people reporting relief from joint pain, carpal tunnel, and even itch relief. Biofreeze is effective with mitigating the pains of normal activities and can be used in conjunction with regular exercise as a way of keeping active.
As we age it is important to stay active for physical and mental health and Biofreeze, if used regularly, can alleviate the pains that often come with physical exercise. It can also replace the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen and naproxen which, according an article by the Harvard Medical School, are associated with an increase in heart attacks or stroke. Many people regularly use NSAIDs for pain relief from sore joints or muscles after exercising. According to the FDA, taking an NSAID for a headache, or for a few days to ease a sore muscle won’t cause any problems but long-term use can be problematic. On September 30, 2004, Vioxx, an NSAID like Ibuprofen and Aleve was taken off the market because of an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. In the five years Vioxx was on the market it caused as many as 140,000 heart attacks in the United States alone. This prompted new studies into all NSAIDs and all, except Aspirin, were found to have similar heart attack and increased blood pressure risks. Biofreeze can alleviate the pain associated with a healthy exercise regimen without the increased cardiovascular risks. Biofreeze does not use waxes, oils, aloe, or petroleum but instead contains an herbal extract from a South American holly shrub. The result is a unique, fast acting, effective pain reliever that can deliver a variety of benefits for therapy, pain relief, exercise, and overall comfort.
