WORK SMARTER - NOT HARDER!
Formostar produces far infrared heat (FIR), which is actually light that we can’t see, but can feel as heat. All warm-blooded animals, including humans, generate this type of heat naturally to warm themselves, and more than half of the sun’s heat is infrared as well. Formostar Infrared Wrap generates infrared heat in the 5-15 micron wavelength, the same wavelength as the sun and our bodies produce, so it is safe and natural.
During a Formostar Infrared Wrap session, far infrared heat is generated very close to the body and can penetrate 1-2 inches, heating areas where fats and toxins have been stored without generating uncomfortable heat on the surface of the skin. As many fats and toxins are soluble at temperatures of just over 100 degrees, these fats and toxins, including cholesterol, heavy metals and acids, can be dissolved and excreted through our sweat or kidneys.
Heating the body can activate over 2 million sweat glands as the body seeks to cool itself. Extensive sweating can be very energy intensive, increasing metabolic rates, blood flow, tissue oxygenation and burning calories as you sweat and for some time afterward. In recent clinical research, approximately 15% of the sweat was composed of these undesirable fats and toxins in an infrared session, compared to 3-5% with normal exercise.
Clinical research has also established that sweating is an energy-intensive process. Extensive sweating can speed up the metabolism, resulting in dramatically increased caloric consumption. Simply put, sweating burns calories, often at very high rates. The metabolism can remain elevated for several hours after a session. So a Formostar Infrared Wrap session can burn calories both during a session and for some time afterward.
Repeated Formostar Infrared Wrap sessions can result in weight loss through the combination of burning calories and remove fats and toxins.
As mentioned above, the sweat produced in a Formostar Infrared Wrap session can consist of about 85% water. Formostar Infrared Wrap heat therapy can be effective in removing fats, cholesterol, ammonia, sulfuric acid, nicotine, alcohol, mercury and aluminum. These can be dissolved and removed through sweating and also through normal bodily elimination.
Many of us have used a heating pad to soothe pain and heat has been well documented in the treatment of pain relief. The penetrating Formostar Infrared Wrap heat can result in immediate therapeutic benefit through increased blood flow and tissue oxygenation and may also act directly on irritated nerve endings. A 2008 study found that chronic pain patients experienced a 70% reduction in pain levels after the first infrared therapy session.
Recent clinical observations and studies have produced a large body of observations on the potential beneficial effects of infrared therapy in a broad range of disorders as well as promoting well-being, including:
•Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
•Anti-aging effects on the skin and other tissues
•Acute and chronic soft tissue injuries and repair
