Far infrared is a specific type of light that is not visible to the naked eye, but can be felt as warmth. It is the type of heat that we receive from the sun and that our bodies generate all the time and that's why our bodies love it. Far infrared is NOT ultraviolet (UV). Far infrared is used in incubators to nurture and support premature newborn babies.
Far infrared is not only safe, it is essential to life. We depend on far infrared to stay alive. All of our essential bodily functions depend on far infrared heat like keeping our blood warm and circulating, maintaining a strong immune system, etc.
When our bodies absorb far infrared, our blood cells move faster. Active, moving blood means better circulation, better healing, better detox, and better cell regeneration. Better circulation means more oxygen in your blood. Oxygen-rich blood is the best way your body will reduce swelling and inflammation, heal tissue and take pain away. Our bodies will absorb all the far infrared it can to boost its' ability to perform all these functions.
