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.
In one study, a group of 40 women exercised on stationary bikes 3 times a week for a period of 4 weeks. Half the group was exposed to Near Infrared during exercise, and those 20 women reduced inches around the thighs and waist by 444% as compared to the group that wasn't exposed to Near Infrared. 1
