Our Athletes Gel customers are always telling us that this is the best pain relief gel they have ever used. Here are some of the most common questions we get asked. Have your own question, ask us!
Q: What does it smell like?
A: This is such a popular question! Have you ever had root beer barrel candy? AG smells just like it! If you haven't, you might compare it to a sweet-cinnamon smell. It is NOT an over-powering menthol scent like other topical pain relief products. Our great scent comes from the active ingredients of capsaicin and wintergreen oil as well as supporting ingredients of clove oil and arnica.
Q: Is the product greasy?
A: Nobody likes a greasy product. Athletes Gel was engineered to be non-greasy and dries quickly as it is absorbed into your skin.
Q: When should I apply Athletes Gel?
A: Most people think that you can only apply pain relief gels after a workout or activity. We recommend using Athletes Gel both pre- and post-workout. Applying prior to an activity can help combat inflammation during your workout and minimize the after-workout swelling.
Q: How quickly does Athletes Gel start working?
A. Almost immediately. Athletes Gel has been specifically formulated to provide fast-acting relief. There are numerous studies supporting the fast-acting nature of Athletes Gel.
Q: Where can I use Athletes Gel?
A: Athletes Gel can be used on sore muscles, sore joints, sprains, strains and bruises. As directed, you should avoid getting Athletes Gel in your eyes and always wash your hands after application.
Q: How long will a tube of Athletes Gel last?
A: You guessed it... it depends. Some of our customers use Athletes Gel multiple times per day and others use only sporadically. As a rule, the 1.8 oz tube of Athletes Gel should last around 28 days if applied for exercise preparation, performance and recovery.
Q: Is Athletes Gel waterproof?
A: Once Athletes Gel dries, it is largely waterproof and sweat-proof.
Q. How is Athletes Gel different than other topical pain products?
A. Athletes Gel is specifically formulated to deliver the active ingredients to the area that needs pain relief. Athletes Gel uses 3 FDA-approved active ingredients, plus 2 naturopathic supporting ingredients to deliver deep penetrating, fast and long-acting pain relief. Athletes Gel is a plant-derived formulation and is a World Anti-Doping Organization and USA Anti-Doping compliant formula that is available without a prescription. Athletes Gel is used by hundreds of the world’s most elite athletes and is now available to relieve the pain for the athlete in all of us!
