Crowds visiting the Tiger Balm active Muscle Rub booth at the star health expo at Setia SPICE convention centre in Bayan Lepas, Penang.

TIGER Balm has been used worldwide since 1908 for relieving all kinds of aches and pains, from insect bites to tummy aches.

Now, it has something for sports people too.

Runners who took part in the Star Health Fun Run 2019 got the chance to try the new non-greasy Tiger Balm Active Muscle Rub, which was useful for pre-sports muscle warm-up.

Tiger Balm sponsored 5,000 units of the 5g tubes for runners to warm their leg muscles up before hitting the road last Sunday along the 9.5km run, which included uphill stretches.

It also had a booth at Star Health Expo 2019 at Setia SPICE Convention Centre, where promoter Nor Ashikin Ahmad Domil said visitors had been snapping up the new product.

“It’s great for preventing muscle strains and sprains. You can apply it before physical work such as gardening,” she said.

After physical activity, one could then use the Tiger Balm Active Muscle Gel to help the muscles cool down with little chance of getting cramps.

Star Health Expo 2019, the largest health expo in the northern region took place last Friday and ended on Sunday.

The theme this year — ‘Get Fit. Live Great!’ — aimed to inspire Malaysians to lead a healthy lifestyle and adopt a holistic approach that includes physical and mental health, emotional well-being and financial wellness.

Star Health Expo 2019 was organised by I.Star Events Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Star Media Group Bhd with Great Eastern Life as exclusive event partner.
