Watch their video and you will see they compare themselves to Ice Therapy. Click Here We all are aware of the benefits of ice at the time of am injury. The cold of ice slows swelling. The numbing effect of cold can decrease the pain sensation and help with swelling.
I meet people, regularly, that use the product and enjoy the success they experience. As I said BoiFreeze has been marketed very well and people trust the brand. BioFrezze is available worldwide.
Real Time Pain Relief also has the active ingredient Menthol. 1% or below. This product has been available since 1998. Their marketing strategy has been a little different and the product is not as well-known. Now they have engaged in a national radio campaign bringing Real Time Pain Relief to the public’s attention. Also offering a free sample to those who ask for it.
Real Time Pain Relief is found in over 20 countries around the world.

The Homeopathic formula has .5% and the over the counter formula has 1%. 1% or below is considered to be a safer level of menthol. This level will not “burn” or raise levels of Substance P.
Real Time Pain Relief’s concept is different. Labeled “Ingredient Based Pain Therapy”, Homeopathic, Herbal and Nutritional Pain Relief. Containing over a dozen natural ingredients that relive pain but also reduces inflammation and supplying essential building blocks to healthy muscles, joint cartilage and bones.
There is some difference in the price. The cost of Real Time Pain Relief is a little higher but then they have more ingredients. An interesting fact, Real Time Pain Relief has not raised their price since they entered the pain relief market in 1998.
