Have you heard of magnetic bracelets before? We’re not talking about the old-fashioned copper kind either but the unique and edgy Bioflow Sport. Its sleek and cool design certainly makes this wristband stand out from the crowd; worn by some of the best golfing professionals in the world, the Bioflow Sport has a global following with thousands of people benefiting from its unique technology every day. Today, we’re taking a look at why golfers specifically may benefit from the magnet therapy contained in this smart piece of wrist wear.
First things first, a little bit about Bioflow
You may well have seen the name ‘Bioflow’ appear in several popular sporting publications including Golf Monthly. The company boasts numerous high profile ambassadors as part of its winning team, from golfing pros Scott Jamieson and Chris Wood to British golfing legend Lee Westwood.
Boasting over 25 years experience in magnet therapy, it’s no wonder that so many golfing professionals are jumping on board and forging ambassadorial ties with the company. Creating products classed as “no health risk” by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and with many years of industry-leading experience under their belt, Bioflow has become a trusted name in the wearable magnet therapy game. Even better, the wristbands are really affordable, meaning that you don’t have to be on a golfing pro’s wage to invest in one yourself.
A closer look at the technology behind the product
Bioflow magnetic wristbands have become somewhat of a game-changer in the world of magnet therapy. Bioflow’s patented ‘Central Reverse Polarity’ technology uses three poles to create a high strength, multi-directional field of magnetism – a technology which no other product in the market can boast. As blood passes through these poles, the cells within the bloodstream become more stimulated, similar to the effect created by electromagnetic equipment used in hospitals.
Although there are numerous styles of bracelet available, the Bioflow Sport range was created specifically to keep up with the demands of an active lifestyle. Featuring a silicone wristband and water resistant properties, the bracelet is designed for use during sports and fitness activities, making it a great option for active individuals such as golfers. Subtle, sporty, and stylish, the Bioflow Sport is comfortable and unobtrusive to wear, whilst the silicone band stretches to fit over the hand.
Although not a cure or a treatment, many wearers have reported that the band has relieved symptoms of their illnesses, some instantaneously and others over the long term. Some of the main benefits that are highlighted by Bioflow or that are commonly brought up by the wearers themselves include:
- Reduced inflammation
- Restoration of the body’s natural PH levels
- Improved blood circulation
- Reduced pain, aching, and stiffness
- Faster healing and recovery
As a golfer, there are numerous ways that this could be beneficial for you…
Potential benefit no. 1: Sharper focus
“It’s such a psychological and mental game, golf, that the smallest wrong thing at the wrong time can distract you from what you’re trying to achieve.” – Lee Westwood
We all know from experience that golf is mostly a mind game, meaning that you need to be mentally prepared at all times to handle the challenges on the fairway. Stimulating the blood flow helps to encourage the circulation of oxygen rich blood around the body and promote better organ function, including that of the brain. Keeping your brain processes as sharp as possible and your mind focused ensures that you are more equipped to handle those high pressure shots.
Potential benefit no.2: Reduced risk of fractures
Osteoporosis is a common and much dreaded ailment for the golfer. The back and the hips can be especially at risk of fracturing due to the amount of walking around done on each session as well as the repetitive motions of swinging a club. As your bones become more brittle, hitting those demanding shots with the same force becomes increasingly difficult, as does the risk of injuring yourself. Increasing blood circulation has shown to aid in the promotion of better bone density and having good bone health helps to maintain good balance and posture as well as reduce the risk of fractures.
Potential benefit no.3: Better club grip
Did you know that there are over one hundred different types of arthritis? Some of the symptoms of joint disease include inflammation and swelling of the joints, often the hands, wrists, and feet. As a result, gripping things can be very painful and difficult – not ideal for a golfer who needs to have good dexterity for both holding their club and adjusting their shots as needed. By using their Bioflow bracelet to reduce the amount of inflammation in the body, wearers have reported that joint pain is more bearable with actions such as gripping being much more comfortable.
Potential benefit no.4: More endurance
Back pain, wrist pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, elbow pain… the list seemingly never ends when you’re a seasoned golfer still committing most of your day to working on your game. All those years of playing golf takes its toll on the body and when you combine this with the struggle of living with an illness, you are soon deterred from spending lot of time on the course. By wearing the Bioflow and potentially reducing this energy-sapping pain, you can once again discover your enthusiasm and drive for getting back on the fairway. You may even find yourself more invigorated than you’ve felt for a while and can keep playing for longer.
Potential benefit no.5: Faster recovery
“We were the only ones in the gym first thing, no one else, and last to leave the range. Looking back, we were the two with the right attitude and approach.” – Chris Wood
Golfing pros and Bioflow ambassadors Chris Wood and Scott Jamieson have often spoken about how their Bioflow bracelets have aided their recovery process. Whether they are putting in the hours at the gym, training on the golf course, or competing in tournaments, their Bioflow plays an integral part of their post-exercise recovery. Their example is clear: to improve your game, you need to commit the hours and push yourself whilst using the Bioflow to reduce inflammation and help the body’s healing process. Relaxed capillary walls and wider blood vessels allow blood to flow more easily, helping the body to get rid of toxins more quickly and speed up the healing process. Increasing the amount of oxygen circulating around the body helps to promote cell growth whilst restoring the body’s natural PH levels reduces fatigue vulnerability and loss of bone mass.
Potential benefit no.6: Less headaches and migraines
When you’re putting all of your focus and concentration into your game, the last thing that you need is a headache or migraine to make you feel sick and dizzy. If you are one of those unlucky people who frequently suffer from painful headaches or migraines, you will know how quickly they can come on and cripple you. Some wearers of the Bioflow bracelet have noted a huge reduction in how frequently they experienced headaches and migraines and even indicated a reduced dependence on tablets.
Don’t forget – you should always consult with your doctor if you have a prescribed migraine medication as the Bioflow magnetic bracelet is not a treatment.
Potential benefit no.7: Sustained swing capability
Many of us have felt it that dreaded twinge in the spine that, before long, turns into a sharp pain. Although lower back comes with the territory – a consequence of all those repetitive swinging motions – it’s still difficult to see the effectiveness of our swing capability begin to drop over time. Having the potential to lessen back pain and make joints less stiff – without going through an invasive procedure – is definitely an appealing prospect. Reduced stiffness and pain means that you can move around more freely and your swing doesn’t have to suffer.
Ready to invest? A few need-to-knows about the Bioflow…
To give your bracelet more longevity, you need to ensure that you have the right size and that it isn’t too tight on your wrist. The band is made from silicone, therefore, the tighter the size, the more stretch is needed to get it over your hand, putting pressure on the seal which houses the magnet. Always measure your wrist before ordering your Bioflow and pick the larger option if you are in between two sizes.
A minority of users may experience mild flu-like symptoms when they first start wearing their Bioflow; there is no need for concern as it is just part of the detox process. Ensure that you drink plenty of water, particularly during the first few weeks, and if necessary just wear the bracelet whilst you sleep until your body adjusts.
Important – don’t wear a Bioflow bracelet if you have a pacemaker, insulin pump, or any other device which could be affected by a strong magnetic field.
