Scientific Proof that Near Infrared Works

Near Infrared light waves and Infratherapy (the combination of Near Infrared and cardio exercise) have many proven benefits, backed up by a multitude of independent scientific studies. With infratherapy, effective weight loss exercise can be made better. Exercise for pain relief, and HGH exercise— can be enhanced with Near Infrared (NIR). Infrared is used by the medical community, sports training business, the military, NASA astronauts use infrared to fight muscle atrophy in space, infrared therapy is even used for infant care.

What are the benefits of Near-Infrared?

Infratherapy is the combination of Infrared energy with cardio exercise, and it provides many benefits. In fact, it may be that no exercise equipment on earth provides as many benefits an Infratherapy system does.

Footnotes of all benefits are provided for your verification.

BODY FAT REDUCTION

A group of 20 women riding stationary bicycles 3 times per week for 4 weeks exposed to NIR lost an average of 8cm vs. 1.8cm or 444% more as compared to 20 women doing the same exercise without NIR.3

SUPERIOR ENDURANCE

Muscle fatigue was reduced by up to 42.2% when exposing muscle to NIR.5,6

GREATER STRENGTH

Growth Hormone release is induced by an increase in body temperature and not by exercise itself. Growth Hormone increases muscle mass, calcium retention, and lipolysis (the breakdown of stored fat).14

INCREASE CIRCULATION TO THE MUSCLES

NIR causes the release of Nitric Oxide which stimulates vasodilatation of the microcirculatory system bringing more blood flow to the muscles.4

DECREASE JOINT & MUSCLE PAIN; INCREASE FLEXIBILITY

Penetrating heat from NIR has long been proven to reduce pain and increase circulation to areas of discomfort. NIR has also been shown to significantly increase the range of flexibility.13

FASTER WORKOUTS

Due to increased production of ATP and quick dilation of the circulatory system, a person can lessen warm-up time and work at a higher level of exertion without increasing blood pressure.1,9,10

EXPERIENCE INCREASED ENERGY

NIR activates the color sensitive chemicals (chromophores & cytochrome systems) to depths of 23 cm's stimulating the energy processes in cells. 1

FASTER TONING

Microtrauma, tiny damage to the muscle fibers, is the basis of toning muscles. Certain tissue regenerating genes including integrins, laminin, gap junction proteins and kinesin proteins have shown a two- to five-fold increase upon exposure to NIR, therefore, resulting in faster recover times from exercise. 7,8

BODY DETOX

Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Sweat is the only way to remove certain carcinogenic PCBs, dioxins, phthalates, and volatile organic hydrocarbons.11

BOOST METABOLISM

Burn more calories. The mitochondria (power plants of the cells) produce more ATP (energy currency of the cells) when NIR is in introduced.1,2

VISIBLE CELLULITE REDUCTION!

Cellulite is increased by trapped fat and toxins due to poor circulatory system and visible by weakened connective tissue. NIR helps rebuild connective tissue and has been shown to reduce cellulite.12

SKIN REJUVENATION!

DNA Synthesis of fibroblasts which affects the elasticity of skin can increase five-fold. The result is younger more beautiful skin.1,7

ANTI-AGING

Infrared stimulates the body's natural production of HGH, the "Fountain of Youth" hormone by increasing of body temperature 1°C which causes Lipolysis, or the burning of fat. 16
