Poundland has been hailed for a back gel that is helping people get a better night’s sleep.
Masterplast’s Freeze Gel, which is currently sold for £1, apparently eases back pain after just one application.
A woman shared a photo of the product to the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains and urged others to try it.
She wrote: “You need to try this! if you have sciatica like me, arthritis or just plain muscle aches, this stuff is brilliant.
“I’ve had medication from the doctors and still in pain, pop this on and it does the job only £1 in Poundland.”
She later explained to the Manchester Evening News that she found the gel useful for sciatica and arthritis.
She said: “I’ve only been using it for two months with my pain but my mother who is really ill with arthritis and other problems has been using it for years.
“As soon as I applied it within 10 minutes the pain eased. I’ve tried all the Deep Heats and doctor’s creams and for me it does the job. I just need to stock up on it now.”
Other users of the Facebook group also praised the gel.
One person commented: “To whomever posted about the Poundland Freezegel – thank you so much.
“My husband has been suffering with sciatica and related back pain for over four months. He’s been on various pain killers, rubs, creams, exercises, private physiotherapy but with very little relief.
“Bought a tub this afternoon and it has been fabulous. Not completely pain free but it certainly has made him a lot more comfortable after one application! He’s hopeful for a full night’s sleep.”
Meanwhile, we reported yesterday that there’s a new battery-powered buzzer which could be the secret to tackle snoring once and for all.
The device aims to help those with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), a potentially serious disorder which causes breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep resulting in loud snoring noises.
According to the Daily Mail, research has found that this forehead gadget can reduce snoring symptoms by a third within DAYS of using it.
The buzzer was developed by scientists in Spain and works by alerting people when they are sleeping on their backs.
It is worn on the person’s forehead and sends out vibrations when the individual turns onto their backs.
And it continues to vibrate until the sleeper rolls back onto their side.
According to Sibelmed – the company that creates the buzzer – you can’t get the device just yet but they will be available soon.
The website states it “reduces the incidence of sleep apnoea and/or positional snoring”.
It also says: “Many different clinical studies believe positional therapy to be an effective solution for positional OSA, obtaining similar results to CPAP treatment.”
