Poor circulation is something that no one should live with, yet so many people suffer with. Although it is not a specific disease, poor circulation is a condition that can lead to a lot of pain, as well as various medical conditions. Although poor circulation can usually be prevented by diet and exercise, some medical conditions will affect your circulation no matter how hard you try to fight it. For those who do not suffer with medical conditions, sometimes we are just not able to be active like we wish. Many people go to work every day, and sit for hours on end trying to get there work done. Eventually, sitting too long can lead to health problems, as well as aches and pains all over your body. On the other end, some of us are constantly on our feet, but just have health problems not in our control that causes a lot of pain in your legs, knees, and other areas of the body.
When I first heard of the Revitive IX Circulation Booster, I was very skeptical. I actually came across it accidentally, but for some reason it caught my eye more than other products. I did a lot of research, and eventually had to order this product to test it out. I work from my computer a lot, so the thought of getting a massage and helping my blood circulate at the same time while working was a win-win for me. I am kind of a medical nerd, so I had to know if it was going to help with all it said it was. I am also a nature fan, so if I can stop the use of medicine with something natural I am always willing to try. Overall, the Revitive circulation booster wasn’t just easy and convenient to use, it is also very relaxing and overall helped many of the pains I was having due to poor blood circulation.
Before running out and purchasing you own, you must understand that this product is not for everyone. You must be careful, as there are some people that should not even try this product. Young adults ages 16 and younger, people with certain conditions like DVT, and women in their first trimester should not attempt to use this product.
So, who can use this? Anyone who is suffering from poor blood circulation can give this product a try. That includes:
• People who sit for long periods of time
• Older adults who have trouble walking
• Those who do not eat properly
• Tobacco smokers
• Medical conditions such as diabetes or hypertension (high blood pressure)
What you must remember is your legs acts as a very important crutch to the circulatory system. Even though your heart pumps blood throughout the body, the legs help the blood get back up to the heart. Basically, every time I am walking somewhere, it helps the blood pump back up through my body. The more I walk, the more blood and oxygen get to come on through, and it also helps all the nasty CO2 and other things get out of your body. However, as I walk less and less, because I am getting older and lazier, I have noticed it start to catch up with me. Now, I will work all day and by the end of the day my legs ache like I run my own personal training gym. Yet all I do is work from my desk, and it made no sense to me.
Upon some research, I realized this was the reason I felt like I did. No matter how much I tried to work out, get up and move more, there is simply only so much I could do in one day. This is when I came across the Revitive Circulation Booster. The circulation booster looks like a foot massager, and you simply place it beneath your feet and let it do its work. You can adjust the pressure as needed, and basically it sends signals into your legs to help your legs spasm as though they were walking. This is what helps pump blood throughout your body, and helps the overall health of your heart and legs. Although you can’t expect to lose weight or run a marathon, you can expect amazing differences in overall health. Not only will your circulatory system get more “exercise”, you will see a difference in the swelling and aching in your legs.
So what exactly is it sending into my legs?
That is an awesome question, one I had to know myself. I did not want this to turn into shock therapy! However, it is nothing like that. What it actually sends is something called EMS throughout your body. I personally had heard of TENS before, but not EMS. TENS is a good therapy, because it does in fact stop the pain. On the bad end, it is not actually helping stop the pain, it simply blocks it by sending certain signals to the brain. However, EMS is nothing like that. EMS stimulates your muscles, and makes them contract as if they are actually working. This helps stop the problem by activating circulation, and helps improve blood flow as well as reducing swelling and pain.
One thing I love about this product is all the amazing accessories that you can get with it. There is the Revitive Cooling Gel, which helps with the achiness that is associated with poor blood circulation. If you think the gel is amazing, just wait until you get the chance to try the gloves. I can personally say, in my opinion, with the gloves and circulation booster combined, you might just turn into a super hero. These gloves do the same thing as the circulation booster, only a lot less powerful and in your hands! They do not run on batteries, but they have a special wire in them that actually activates your muscles to get going in the same exact manner. Then, if you travel a lot, or just wish you could take it on family trips, it is possible! I bought the cutest case that fits it perfectly, and even has a handle to carry it. On top of that, it has been medically proven in the UK and clinically tested by many who all mention the same amazing results!
In my personal opinion, I think that everyone should get at least one of these for their homes. Even if you do not believe it will be useful, you will see benefits with this product. There are other products out there that might imitate, but none that have been clinically tested and are so simple to use. On top of that, every single one of these babies comes with its own 2 year warranty. Since I have gotten this product, the swelling on my legs has gone down. On top of that, the aching I assumed I would just have to “get used to” or “live with” was now slowly getting better. Then as an extra bonus, the sharp pains I used to feel deep in my knees does not occur as often.
One of the best things they could have included with this product is the electrode body pads. Although the machine helps with leg pain and overall circulation, some people have aches and other parts of their body they wish they could work. This is where the electrode pads come in, simply place them on your shoulder, back, or anywhere you think could help, and start them up.
I will say at first I could not turn it up too high due to my sensitivity, but over time I was able to slowly raise the number higher up. I always used it for the 20 minutes every day, and I found that after about 10 minutes I liked to start moving some, so I absolutely loved the feature that let me slowly move the platform back and forth. It helped me stretch out my ankles and adjust if I didn’t want to sit in the same place. Another great feature is the remote that lets you adjust your pressure, as well as the time all right there in one place. That way, you don’t even have to worry about bending all the way down if you need to adjust anything.
In the end, this product is by far one of the best things I have bought in a long time. It helped the aches in my legs and knee, and with the electrode pads I was able to help my back at the same time. This product is convenient to use on your time at home, or even at the office. The high quality of the product definitely shows in the results you get, and the fact you can adjust it for your comfort is just one more added bonus. I enjoy how you can put it in a still position, or roll your feet back and forth as I can see how being able to do one or the other can make a difference. The accessories that you can get with this product really help the progress of your aches and pains, and also help you move it easily so it is portable to move as needed. Lastly, just the overall relief I have received with this product is absolutely life changing and worth every single cent.
