Performance Health/Hygenic Corp, maker of Biofreeze Pain Reliever, an analgesic gel, spray and roll-on product popular with massage therapists, announced the donation of more than 115,000 bottles of Biofreeze to U.S. troops.

“The troops carry at lot more on their shoulders than very heavy backpacks,” said Bill Winters, of the U.S. Navy’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation division, in a Biofreeze press release. “When you’re carrying a responsibility as big as America on your shoulders, you’re bound to get sore muscles, and the relief they’ll receive from a product like Biofreeze is going to be greatly appreciated.”

The donation ($1.2 million retail) was made through www.SupportOurTroops.Org, a website that fosters donations from individuals, organizations, businesses and non-profits for U.S. troops and their families.

“When considering where to make this product donation, our troops were at the top of the list,” said Jeff Mathers, product manager for Performance Health/Hygenic Corp. “We are honored to be able to support them and are grateful for their dedication and sacrifice.”
