What is BioFreeze?

BioFreeze can be beneficial for anyone who suffers from any pain! It can be used for arthritis, joint pain, muscle pain, old injuries, sprains/strains, and so much more! It can be used on any external part of the body.
How does BioFreeze work?
  • BioFreeze is a topical analgesic, which works as a ‘counter irritant’; BioFreeze creates a sensation that overrides pain signals to the brain.
  • When BioFreeze is applied, it simulates an inhibitory nerve that blocks the sense of pain from traveling up and telling your brain you are in pain. As a result, the perception of pain is blocked.
  • BioFreeze binds with receptors on the A-Delta Fiber Nerve which releases calcium ions, which helps change/decrease pain through the body’s opioid system.
  • BioFreeze works like ice and reduces blood flow to the area in pain. Unlike ice, BioFreeze does not cause stiffness, skin irritation, temporary pain/ numbness or require you to stay stationary.
