Copper is an essential trace micro-mineral that is essential for our body and is found in all body tissues. It offers numerous benefits such as promoting immune function, protecting cognitive function, relieving arthritis, supporting bone density, supporting iron absorption, slowing down the ageing process and improving blood circulation, just to name a few!
Since our bodies are not capable of synthesizing copper on its own, it becomes necessary that we either consume it through various food sources or wear copper-infused clothes. The anti-inflammatory virtue of copper makes it an excellent choice for apparel. Let us see three kinds of copper-infused clothing products that would be beneficial for those with chronic illness or pain.
- Copper Compression Gloves
These are ideal for people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and Raynaud’s syndrome.
– Improves Blood Circulation
Arthritis may cause inflammation and narrowing of the blood vessels which constrict blood flow. The copper compression gloves make your hands warmer by compressing them. This results in better blood circulation and decreases inflammation. Furthermore, they help in reducing swelling and irritation caused during finger and wrist movements.
– Easy to Use
Numerous physical aids can hinder hand and wrist movement. Compared to them, compression gloves are quite convenient to use. You won’t have to make any big lifestyle changes while wearing them. You can choose between finger-less gloves or fully covered gloves. Buy only good quality gloves that have skin-friendly lining and padding for extra comfort.
- Copper Compression Socks
– Beneficial for Diabetic Patients
People with diabetes are prone to developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), venous insufficiency and peripheral edema. Graduated compression diabetes socks provide more pressure at the foot and lesser pressure on the calves. This helps in maintaining proper circulation to the lower extremities and prevents swelling. It also improves nerve sensitivities, if any.
– Improves Blood Flow
Compression socks improve blood flow by supporting blood circulation in the legs. They mimic the muscle’s ability to pump blood from the lower legs to other areas of the body. They are generally tighter at the toes and loosen up higher up the leg. The socks help in overcoming gravity to prevent blood collecting in certain areas and they keep the blood moving. This helps in preventing blood clots which can travel to other areas of your body, such as your lungs, which is extremely dangerous.
They also help in relieving leg cramps, swelling, itching and fatigue. Mild pressure is recommended and stronger levels are not necessarily better. Consult with a doctor before wearing compression socks.
– Improves the Functioning of Valves in the Leg
Compression socks help in circulating blood by gently squeezing the foot and calf muscles. This helps in straightening out the vein walls to a better working state. The gentle compression offered by the socks allows the valves to function properly by opening them to allow blood flow toward the heart and closing to prevent blood from flowing backwards.
- Copper-Infused Pajamas
Copper has anti-microbial properties which kill infection-causing germs naturally. It effectively eliminates bacteria, viruses and fungi upon contact, thus protecting you from potential health risks.
– Prevents MRSA
There are clinical studies which show that cooper has the capability of killing even the antibiotic-resistant strains like MRSA. Copper-infused fabric is commonly used in hospital clothing, bed linen and various applications where the risk of bacterial contamination is high.
– Improves Blood Circulation
Those suffering from cold hands and feet, varicose veins and issues related to poor blood circulation in the extremities will benefit from using copper-infused nightwear as it increases blood circulation.
– Prevents Skin Dryness
Copper helps in restoring the skin’s moisture and reduces itchiness and irritation for people suffering from eczema and other skin conditions. Moreover, copper clothes can make your skin more supple and youthful.
– Comfortable, anti-odor
Copper-infused clothing is designed with bamboo, which is a soft and breathable textile. The copper ions are bonded to fabric on a molecular level, which helps in delivering the myriad benefits straight to the skin.
Lastly, copper inhibits the growth of microbes and bamboo draws away excess moisture from the skin. This prevents body odor. Copper clothing also stays fresh for longer so you don’t have to wash it so often.
As you can see, there are numerous benefits of copper-infused clothing. They are easy to use, comfortable, don’t need any extra care and they retain the qualities of copper even after washing.
