Product Notes:

If you're like me, when you're suffering from aching joints or sore or strained muscles driving you to distraction, you want something tried and true that works pretty much immediately on multiple fronts, but doesn't make you regret using it because of the way it stains your clothes or stinks up the joint.

This gel certainly appears to fit the bill. As the video explains, it has a nice cooling effect to start with (from its menthol, which also begins its pain reduction and anti-inflammatory action); then some of its other components have an analgesic effect by inhibiting the signals transmitting pain intensity; and finally it helps open up the blood vessels in the area, which increases the blood flow there, which not only induces a warm, soothing sensation, but also brings in more oxygen and nutrients to facilitate healing.

And although it's new to Canada, it actually originated about 40 years ago (in 1981), when the initial liquid version was developed in Switzerland by a successful tennis player and businessman who wanted an effective topical solution without any chemical ingredients that could be absorbed rapidly without leaving a greasy film or residues behind - and it's been a mainstay in that country ever since.

* Other Indications: for Back pain; Bruises; Joint pain; Lumbago; Muscle pain, tension, or cramps; Neck pain; Rheumatic pain; Sciatica; or Tennis elbow.
