Nights of waking up with cramps after competing just vanished,” said Poolman.
“What sets Krampade® apart from the other products is the science behind the development of Krampade®. We brought together our collective backgrounds in the sciences and athletics to develop our product lines,” said Murphy. “We have a close association with collegiate hockey and by our new affiliation with the NAHL we demonstrate that we’re committed to enhancing and maintaining a player’s high level of athletic performance on the ice to give them an even better opportunity for success when taking that next step in their career.”
