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.

What 's the relationship between Far Infrared Rays (FIR) & your 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.

These are the basics, if you want to know more, then click here.

What’s the recommended “micron” wavelength of Far Infrared?

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.

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).


What are “ Bio-ceramics"?

The bio-ceramics we fuse into Prolotex™ 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).

^^ Top


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".


What is Prolotex™?

Prolotex™ is the accumulative result of years of research and development in the Far Infrared Therapy market. We use only the most technically advanced materials proven to be safe and effective in our products.

Are there any side-effects?

There are no known negative side-effects from wearing Prolotex™ products. As the body rids itself of old toxins and residual buildup, some individuals may experience some initial detoxification symptoms. For example, heavy smokers may react with a mild skin rash. This is usually a good sign the Prolotex™ Gloves are working. If you continue to experience prolonged symptoms, discontinue using the product and contact your physician.



As the Far Infrared Energy penetrates into cells and tissues, most customers experience a warming sensation from wearing their gloves. They do not feel hot like a battery operated gadget.


Why do my hands start to itch when I wear the gloves?

Maybe 1 in 1000 customers have commented on "itching" when they wear the FIR gloves. All of them smoked cigarettes.

The irritating itching was caused by the stored toxins being released from the cells in your body. You NEED to get rid of these toxic chemicals, and FIR helps detoxify your precious cells.

We suggest that, after a round of washing your gloves and hands, to wear the gloves again. You may need to do this more than once.
