    I've been using this just over a week and if you like muscle rub/tiger balm etc take a punt, this stuff is much stronger and longer lasting.

    There is some science behind it too but in laymans terms it's supposedly strong enough to trigger an inflammatory response from the body healing small injuries or reliving pain a lot quicker.

    Theres obv more products out there but this is the strongest I have found on ebay so far.

    I have the 16m scoville stuff at present and it's awesome but apparently will not come out of your elbow/knee sleeves - currently have elbow sleeve on with no fresh product applied today and it's still pretty hot. It is a small bottle with a roll on applicator so no need to touch it.
    It will redden your skin significantly at first. Do not get in eyes/mouth/nose etc!

    Thanks man I love this kind of stuff. Gonna get some.

    Do you notice veins coming up in the area after application?

    Curious because capsicum is a very effective vasodilator too, but it’s hard to eat enough to get the effect unless you’re hardcore into hot food challenges etc.

    There’s apparently some research into countries that have the hottest traditional dishes and their freedom from associated blood pressure driven health issues.

    Forget British curries — those are a bastardisation.

    I got it for my tendonitis, supposedly needs 2wks + to be effective but definitely helps relieve pain during workout as all you can feel is the burning :lol:

    @RickJsy not noticed any veins really but definitely reddens skin, especially on first application. Covered with elbow sleeve too mainly. Ben Pollack talks about another chemical in the vid used to aid absorbtion into the skin but also states he has given himself chemical burns doing similar!

    Theres a few other products I could find but this seemed the most potent at a claimed 0.245%

    There’s one therapist I know that swears a laser pointer (the type used in board rooms) helps heat balms penetrate deeper. I don’t know if he has evidence but he’s well regarded in rugby circles.

    Stretch bruh. Do it phaggot2.

    I can even squat with a narrow grip now. Pre mobility it’d wipe me out for a month if I didn’t wear wrist wraps and grab the bar proper wide.

    Sounds like he’s plagiarised the old cold laser treatment they do at therapy centres. They use different wavelengths to apparently stimulate healing in soft tissue. Doubt a laser pointer would produce anything of note even wrt absorption as they’re fairly convinced anything below the dose rate of LLLT is ineffective so I doubt a laser pen would cause any sort of tangible reaction.

    Can’t rule out placebo though, as always

    Fairly sure it’s all hocum anyway. The scientific community don’t seem too convinced on it.

    Update.

    Been using this every day for over two weeks now.
    Most days under a 5mm neoprene sleeve for extra heat.

    Tendonitis has improved markedly, can drink from a 2l water bottle or china mug without pain! I even managed some high rep sets of very light hammer curls last friday!

    Going on holiday tomorrow which should help too (unless I pick up any bags awkardly) but will continue to use when I get back.

    Forgot to update this post holiday in september....

    Tennis elbow type tendonitis completely erradicated.
    I always slap the stuff on under elbow sleeves for benching now but it has been clear well over 6-8wks.
