Recovery Revelation…The Nitric Oxide Effect!

I was inspired to learn more about the nitric oxide effect of infrared saunas while watching one of the physicians on the The Doctors episode that HOTWORX was recently featured on. She stated that, “There’s really interesting data about infrared heat specifically increasing nitric oxide, which is a signaling molecule that actually increases circulation. So that’s why people do tout this as beneficial for the skin and also to improve muscle recovery…”Check out the video clip below…

Nitric oxide signals blood vessels when to increase in width, whereby improving circulation throughout the body. This serves to foster anti-inflamation, reduction of swelling and it eases the pain of arthritis.While the “underlying mechanism is not fully understood,” “Repeated thermal therapy manifested by far-infrared (FIR) radiation improves vascular function in both patients and mouse model with coronary heart disease.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23756809I am amazed at the seemingly endless benefits that are continually discovered with respect to infrared heat therapy. The patent pending HOTWORX sauna provides an excellent small group studio environment for fitness and infrared through isometrics.Give your members a nitric oxide boost with HOTWORX!
