Why Your Cotton Socks Aren’t Cutting It
Your regular cotton socks may be doing more harm than good when it comes to your health. The blood in your veins has to work against gravity to flow back to the heart. Anything that impedes that flow—such as circulation problems, lack of movement (especially after an injury or surgery), or weakness in the walls of the veins of the legs (aka: venous insufficiency) — can result in blood pooling in the veins of the lower legs or feet, leading to leg swelling, achiness, fatigue, varicose veins and pain; it could also predispose you to a venous clot.
What Are Compression Socks Used For?
Compression socks were initially designed to help improve blood-flow in post-surgical patients, diabetics, people with circulatory issues, varicose veins, swelling and pain. These people were usually bed-ridden and completely inactive, so they needed a tight-fitting sock to help blood circulate and return to the heart, preventing pooling, blood clots and swelling in their lower extremities. However, most medical compression socks are painful to wear because they are so unbelievably tight and can even cut off circulation, which leads to a whole other host of issues. Not to mention the extreme struggle it is to get the socks on and then off again...
Alpha Sole is the answer you've been looking for. Our unique, technologically advanced socks improve blood circulation, reduce swelling, revive tired feet and legs and control odour using a brand new Copper Infused Technology.
BUT...that's not all...
We wanted to ensure all our customers could get our socks on and off without a frustrating battle. So, we created our socks with a stretchy, comfortable fabric that glides on with ease without compromising on compression support.
There are many reasons why choosing copper infused compression socks are far more beneficial to your comfort and health compared to other compression socks. Even if you don’t suffer from leg pain, poor circulation or varicose veins, copper compression can give you a wide variety of benefits that will improve your everyday life.
HOW IS THE COPPER FABRIC MADE?
Thanks to modern technology, copper ions are embedded into the fabric of the sock on a molecular level, which means they will last a lifetime in the garment! This process can turn regular materials into natural, non-chemical, long-lasting, germ-fighting material that protects your skin from a host of bacteria, odor and potential infections.
✔️ Anti-Microbial Copper ions are scientifically proven to rupture and penetrate the cell wall of bacteria, fungi and viruses. Once inside, the copper ions attack the DNA of the microbe, totally inactivating the microorganism. The copper ions will kill immediately upon contact and cause potentially harmful pathogenic microbes, including superbugs, to be destroyed.
✔️ Anti-Fungal Fungal infections of the skin are very common and include Athlete’s Foot, ringworm and yeast infections. Athlete’s Foot is caused by a microscopic fungus that lives on dead tissue such as the outer layers of skin or toenails, causing itching, burning, blisters, peeling and cracking of the feet. It commonly spreads through direct contact with infected skin and skin particles left on towels, shoes and socks, as well as contaminated surfaces in warm, moist environments such as swimming pools, locker rooms and floors of public showers.
✔️ Healthier, Firmer and Softer Skin Copper plays an important role in the enzymatic processes that keep us healthy, which is why copper peptides are a key ingredient used in skincare, personal care and beauty products. Studies have shown that Copper promotes the production of collagen and elastin essential for healthier, firmer skin.
