Ice Power – scientifically proven effect!
Ice Power effectively relieves pain and inflammation, reduces swelling, releases muscle tension and speeds up recovery of injuries and muscle exertion.
Ice Power Cold Gel effect is based on Menthol and other essential oils, which lower the temperature of the skin by approximately 5-7 degrees. The effect is promoted by recently discovered cold mediating menthol receptor (CMR1), which belongs into a group of skin thermoregulation receptors. Menthol receptor mediates the effect also to deeper tissues. The gel reduces the inflow of blood and tissue fluids, preventing the forming of swelling. The sooner the Ice Power Cold Gel is used, the better the results. Ice Power Cold Gel enables to perform cold therapy more often, which prolongs the effect of the treatment.
