Wellbeing Related Benefits of Formostar:
Pain Management: The Formostar was developed for therapeutic purposes – mainly rheumatoid arthritis and joint mobility. Heat is a well-known treatment for pain relief with far infrared heat lamps being used by the Asians for a long time. Because the heat is absorbed around 4.5 cm’s below the surface it helps blood vessels dilate (expand), bringing relief and aiding healing of muscle and soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, arthritis, muscle spasm and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Increased blood circulation not only carries off metabolic waste products but also delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, to help promote faster recovery. The heat deadens the nerve endings, creating an analgesic effect.
Weight Loss Related Benefits of Formostar:
Fat loss: You need heat to breakdown fat. You either create the heat yourself, normally through exercise, or in the case of the Formostar the heat is put in passively. Due to the penetration of far infrared rays the Formostar can get into the fat layers. We use the analogy of the butter in the frypan – if it’s large and hard-packed it takes longer to melt, if it’s a small sliver, it’s a lot faster. Fats are released predominantly in the lymphatic system – the waste disposal system that runs through all the body. Fat released cannot be absorbed by other fat cells until it has been through the liver and as such, until it has been transported to the blood. This is a gradual process and depends mostly on circulation in the lymphatic system and levels of enzymes to break down the fats to transportable parts. After the fat is in the blood it will partly be used for energy by muscles, cells or organs (predominantly liver). It can also be expelled through stool and the remainder absorbed into remaining fat cells. The level of re-absorption depends on how much of the fat is used for energy or expelled. There will always be a certain amount of usage so the fat released is very unlikely to be redistributed in its entirety. One can, however, affect the rate at which the fat is used for energy and reduce the rate of re-absorption. If people load carbohydrates in excess of energy requirements, they will be stored as fat, so if people want to achieve maximum benefit from the metabolised fat, they should keep their intake down. If people hydrate they can also help flush the wastes through their system. Most people don’t realise that In order to lose 1⁄2 kilo fat you need to either expend 3500 calories or decrease intake by 3500 calories. Based on the results from the clinical study and results from a large number of customers, the minimum we would expect someone to lose in three wraps is 1⁄2 a kilo. If they don’t, they may need to keep a food diary.
Centimetre loss: People generally experience centimetre results before loss on the scales which makes sense, based on the above equation. In addition, the more excess fat a person carries, generally the more excess fluid and wastes they carry. The sweating process and the breaking down of the wastes and fats decrease the content size of the cells, providing centimetre loss. As hydrating is an important part of the Formostar process, fluid loss is over and above what is required for the healthy functions of the body.
