Ion Sportswear for Athletes

Helps improve performance & recover. Ion Sportswear now offers men’s and women’s micro-current bioelectric socks. This incredible new technology conceptualized and designed by Dr. Scott Sheftel, M.D., augments the body’s natural electric activity. By interlacing the socks with a zinc fiber pattern, these bioelectric socks function by interacting with the skin’s surface to generate a low-level electric current. The body produces minute levels of electric currents and when using Ion’s bioelectric socks, this natural effect is amplified. That is because increasing low-level currents within the skin, muscle, and blood vessels, optimizes the body’s performance potential. Ion has obtained three patents for this incredible technology. This performance-enhancing sportswear technology will amaze you with its manifold benefits!

Benefits of Bioelectric Socks for Athletes

  • Decreased Sweating: The state-of-the-art technology works to prevent excessive sweating even for those who suffer from hyperhidrosis! This is because the zinc fiber pattern creates a low-level electric current which causes the sweat glands to reduce secretion of sweat. The enhanced clothing material keeps your feet dry and comfortable even during intense workouts.
  • Increased Blood Circulation: The interwoven zinc pattern activates the skin surface causing the body to increase blood flow. With the boost of blood circulation, athletes can perform at their best in training and performance.
  • Nerve Stimulation: The micro-current activated by the revolutionary Ion Sportswear technology causes the body to react with a stimulated response creating an activating effect so you can perform at your best. Additionally, this stimulation leads to fast twitch muscle fiber activation–ideal for all high-performance athletes.
  • Athletic Conditioning: The micro-current technology used in Ion Sportswear allows athletes to experience less muscle fatigue, faster recovery after exertion, and reduced muscle soreness–they are great for training and performance settings.
  • Antimicrobial: The current produced by Ion Sportswear technology inhibits the spread of microorganisms. Plus, it helps reduce the development of bacteria and fungal growth. No product protects your feet and optimizes performance like Ion Sportswear’s bioelectric socks!

 Performance Boosting Effect of Bioelectric Sportswear

Micro-current therapy has been documented to provide a myriad of health benefits. These include increased ATP production in the mitochondria, decreased sweating, strengthened reflexes, improved muscle recovery, decreased fatigue, heightened blood oxygenation, enhanced blood circulation, and the prevention of bacteria and fungal growth. Furthermore, the amazing zinc infused fabric technology amplifies the natural electric activity of the skin. This leads to extraordinary health advantages for athletes.

Bioelectric Socks Health Benefits

Dr. Sheftel observed a variety of foot health issues in his practice such as foot pain, excessive sweating, and other foot problems. As a result, Dr. Sheftel created Ion’s revolutionary first product: the bioelectric sock. These socks address a multitude of health problems and they come with the many benefits outlined above. Indeed, even people who do not suffer from foot issues will find that their feet feel better and they can stand, work and exercise longer than they could with traditional athletic or compression socks.
