Soothe sore muscles

We rarely get excited about anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving gels, but we’re making an exception for Athletes Gel. Its creator, James Ferguson, is marketing the product to sportspeople across Australia and New Zealand and now counts various football players as customers. He told us he wanted to make a gel that aids performance and recovery, but which packs a punch. So he crammed it with powerful natural active ingredients such as capsaicin and oleic acid. The end result is a gel that penetrate the skin better than most other gels, allowing it to deliver anti-inflammatory and painkilling ingredients (like wintergreen, arnica and menthol) deeper into the tissues. Some of the mag team who were nursing injuries from training tested Athletes Gel and agreed its medicinal effect seemed to go deeper into the tissues. Get it at athletesgel.com
