These easy ways to ease pain mean that when muscular pain strikes, you don’t have to stop. You can keep going with your busy life so long as you can find effective pain relief – something you can rub directly onto where it hurts to help you get moving again.

Your pain could simply be the effects of a busy lifestyle, or from over-doing an activity, such as gardening or sport. Whatever the reason, Deep Relief Anti-inflammatory Gel may be able to help.

What is it?

Deep Relief is a targeted, topical pain-relieving anti-inflammatory gel.

It is classed as a NSAID (non- steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) but Deep Relief is different to other NSAID gels, which only contain one painkilling ingredient. Because Deep Relief contains two – levomenthol and ibuprofen – which work together to target your pain. 

How does it work?

First, Levomenthol acts on the pain receptors in your skin, giving cooling and soothing pain relief.

This allows time for the ibuprofen to reduce inflammation and pain. It does this by penetrating your skin and inhibiting the cyclooxygenase (COX) pathway, and therefore blocking the production of prostaglandins.

Levomenthol also enhances the penetration of ibuprofen, allowing more to get through to your skin. Best of all, Deep Relief starts to work in 10 minutes, leaving you more able to get on with living your life.

How is the relief targeted?

Deep Relief is anti-inflammatory and cooling, while the penetrating pain-relief is specifically targeted at the source of your pain – you rub it on directly, exactly where it hurts.

So the next time your pain flares up, reach for Deep Relief. It can help you to get back on the go again.
