What is The Heat Guard Cooling Tie and how does it work?
The Heat Guard is a tubular tie containing polymer crystals. For first time use or, when dry, soak tie in lukewarm water for 20 – 30 minutes. The crystals absorb water, expanding to more than 400 times their original weight. This water is slowly released onto the fabric, keeping it cool through the natural process of evaporation. No refrigeration is necessary. The great absorption rate of the crystals allows for sufficient water storage to produce a continuous cooling effect for 1 full day.
Why it works!
The Heat Guard works in conjunction with the body’s natural cooling system to help cool you faster and keep you cool longer. When worn around the neck, the tie cools the blood that is flowing through the carotid arteries to and from the brain. This cooled blood goes on to cool the rest of the body. When the body is cooled, both stress and the heart rate are reduced, enabling one to achieve a better performance with less perceived effort. When body temperature is lowered, dehydration is reduced.
