Mountain Ice is a clinically recommended topical analgesic that combines the active ingredient of menthol with rich natural plants and extracts to penetrate deep to reach pain at the source. The Sports Recovery Gel is specifically formulated for athletes and runners to promote muscle health and provide greater stamina, increase endurance, and enhance overall athletic performance. The unique blend not only reduces inflammation and improves circulation, but also works to prevent muscle damage and spasms, helps avoid sports-related injuries, and promotes quicker healing and recovery time. 

Mountain Ice was developed in 2019 to treat arthritis, joint and muscle pain, and neuropathy. The Founder, Martin Zarnock Jr., had personally suffered from stiff joints and muscle soreness over many years. Zarnock wanted to create a superior product that contained rich antioxidants and essential vitamins to heal the pain, rather than just numb it. The natural ingredients are proven remedies that target specific areas of the body and build proteins that increase muscle mass. The result is stronger healthy bones, improved joint flexibility and better body motion. Mountain Ice is owned by Mountainside Medical Equipment, a family-run proud Veteran-Owned Service-Disabled Small Business based in Marcy. For more information, visit
