The BioFreeze Professional – 3 oz Roll On (Pack of 6) is a menthol-based pain relief product that works by producing a cold sensation that overwhelms the pain signals passing through the spine and reaching the brain. It does this via the ability of menthol to bind to temperature sensitive receptors in the tissues of the body and produce this overwhelming effect to “drown out” the pain signals. Although this works similarly to ice in its pain relieving effects, BioFreeze brings some additional benefits:
- It is a more powerful pain relieving agent than ice;
- It is more comfortable on the skin and easier to deploy (e.g. you don’t have to have a refridgerator and the time you would normally require to produce ice).
- It is also longer lasting (based on the subjective experience of 9 in 10 patients).
Compared to oral pain relievers, BioFreeze also enjoys several advantages:
- It is a natural product and is non addictive, unlike many oral pain medications;
- It offers targeted pain relief, unlike an oral analgesic that acts on the entire body;
- It is far less likely to interact with other medications you may be taking and you will not overdose from its use;
- You don’t need a prescription to get BioFreeze.
The BioFreeze Professional – 3 oz Roll On (Pack of 6) is a great choice for use at home or work. You can apply it without it getting on your hands and precisely target specific painful areas using the rollerball applicator. Use it to manage the pain associated with chronic conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis and Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness, such as you may experience after prolonged periods of strenuous exercise.
