History: 100+ years of pain relief

For over 100 years, Absorbine Jr. has provided
fast, effective and lasting pain relief for sore
muscles, arthritis and stiffness.

History of Absorbine Jr

Absorbine was originally created in 1892 by Wilbur F. Young and his wife, Mary Ida, to relieve the muscle pain of their hardworking horses that pulled heavy cargo. The popularity of the formula grew among farmers, who soon realized it quickly relieved their own aches and pains too.

W.F. Young’s love for the hardest-
working animal came to benefit the
hardest-working people.

Absorbine Jr., named after W.F. Young’s son, Junior, was developed specifically for humans – for fast, long lasting and effective relief of pain, stiffness and muscle aches.  Absorbine Jr. is a powerful, safe and trusted formula that has remained virtually untouched since its original formulation and continues to be a staple in medicine cabinets across the country.
