Top Twenty Five (25) Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What is Far Infrared?

Far infrared is a vital source of "light" energy that you're probably not getting enough of. It's part of the electromagnetic spectrum of sunlight that’s safe and extremely beneficial to your health.

2. What’s the relationship between infrared rays & health?

Just understanding the basic correlation between FIR and your health will simply amaze you. This incredible "biogenetic energy" is a fundamental catalyst to improving and maintaining your complete wellness.

Specific wavelengths of far infrared (6-14 microns) are easily absorbed deep within the cells of your skin and soft tissues. Once these “vital rays” come in contact with proteins, collagen and fats, they 'fire' micro-circulation, fine-tune cellular functioning, and flush toxins from the body.

3. What’s the recommended micron far infrared wave length?

In order for you to receive any benefit from far infrared, it must be within a specific range of FIR wavelengths. I can’t help but chuckle every time I here this question, because it doesn’t really matter what anyone recommends. Your body’s cells will only absorb 6-14 micron wavelengths of far infrared rays, the rest will pass through harmlessly. Looks like mother nature is the only one with authority on this one.

4. How deep will the Far Infrared Rays penetrate?

The answers I’ve heard to this particular question over the years appear to be all over the map! Everything from a few centimeters to 4.5 inches. I think the bottom line is really that far infrared penetrates deep within the living tissues of your body. If you want the numbers, then I think these are the most accurate to date: 1.5 to 2.8 inches (approx. 3.75 - 7 cm).

5. What are " Bio-ceramics"?

The bio-ceramics we fuse into Far Infrared materials are made up of a special formula of natural lead-free stones and minerals, like Silica Oxide (SiO2). These bio-ceramics absorb and emit far infrared rays (FIR).

6. How are Bio-Ceramics made?

26 kinds of ceramics with various mineral oxides are mixed together.
When mixed together, these materials naturally emit FIR (Far Infrared Rays)
Mixture is then heated together at 1600'C. Once cooled the formula is then called "Bio-Ceramics"
Bio-Ceramics are capable of emitting FIR (Far Infrared Rays), also known as "biogenetic rays".

7. What is Prolotex™?
