Copper Fit Gel from Idea Village is a roll-on gel that claims to give you instant pain relief from sore muscles. They promise Copper Fit Gel has all natural ingredients and will reduce inflammation and swelling and is ideal for all types of athletes.
How Copper Fit Gel Works
Copper Fit Gel doesn’t disclose the actual ingredients, except to say they’re natural and free of parabens, an ingredient in many cosmetics which some fear is a carcinogen.
To use Copper Fit Gel, they instruct you to just roll it on the affected muscle area. They state Copper Fit Gel works to penetrate and relax muscles creating increased blood flow, thereby dispersing the pain.
Copper Fit Gel says that their claims are backed by a double blind placebo controlled study; however it should be noted that there were only 120 participants in this study. They state that the number of people who did receive the Copper Fit Gel in the study and obtained pain relief was “significantly greater” than the placebo, but they don’t divulge the actual number. They also don’t mention who conducted the study, where or how it was done.
Copper Fit Gel Costs…
$19.98 ($14.99 plus $4.99 in shipping and handling). If you check the box at time of order, you can add a second Copper Fit Gel for $9.99
Copper Fit Gel comes with a 100% money-back guarantee if returned within 30 days; however, this only refers to the $14.99 and not any additional fees. When you order, we’d like to point out you are also signing an arbitration agreement, which limits your right to sue them, should there be any problems with the product.
Bottom Line: Is Copper Fit Gel a Scam?
This product is primarily targeted at (or at least features in the commercial) athletes doing extreme sports like rock climbing and weightlifting, who claim without Copper Fit Gel they would experience a lot of pain.
We’d like to point out that while delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is a normal part of exercise due to pushing yourself just beyond your comfort zone, it is not a good idea to keep exercising if you are in extreme pain. This includes pain when you touch muscles, a gait or limp, or reduced range of motion.
