Do you know that your feet have 250,000 sweat glands which produce half a pint of sweat every day? 

Foot problems can really dampen your mood when you’re travelling; copper compression socks can prevent this if worn while travelling. Chances are that you are probably hearing the words “copper compression socks” for the first time and you’re not so sure about them right?

Well here are 6 reasons why you need to know more about them: 

Copper Socks Help Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Copper clothing socks are known to reduce the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis when worn during a flight. Copper socks add a bit of pressure and combine it with your leg movement to help move the blood in your veins near your skin surface move to the deeper veins and back up to your heart. Your blood can clot in the deep veins and can be fatal if the clot moves to the lungs. This applies gentle pressure to the ankle in particular and the compression socks help keep your blood flowing.

According to a study, wearing copper compression sock leads to a large reduction in symptomless DVT amongst airline passengers who were given compression socks to wear as compared to those that were not allowed to wear anything. 

Minimize the Swelling of Your Feet and Ankles

Copper socks can revive your tired feet and legs as these socks have copper fibres infused into them, which keep your feet dry while the compression technology improves the circulation and swelling. Athletes have been using them for years. The use of compression socks helps to hold your veins tight and prevent them from expanding and dilating.

Provide Warmth, Support to Reduce Friction and even Moisture Absorption

Moisture wicking material is combined with copper ions, to ensure that your feet and legs remain cool and dry throughout the day. Keeping your feet dry is important when you’re active, since sweat encourages bacterial growth. 

These socks promise that they can improve blood flow, reduce muscle soreness and also increase your recovery time. The socks are made up of 85% nylon and 15% Spandex which cushion your soles and the mesh weave helps to create ventilation.

Prevent Sweat and Bad Foot Odour

Bad odours are a common problem with feet. Sweat alone is odourless but when mixed with heat, this creates the perfect conditions for bacteria which naturally live on our skin, thrive and release foul odour.

By killing odour causing germs and keeping your feet dry, copper helps to keep the unpleasant smells under control. Even if you’ve been wearing the same item of clothing for hours on end, it’s essentially self-sterilizing and needs to be washed less often.

Moves the Moisture Away from Your Feet and Regulates the Temperature to Keep it Cool

Copper ions are infused into the fabric of the copper compression socks which minimise heat loss, thus relieving cold, numbness and foot pain in cooler temperatures. Light graduated compression helps to enhance circulation, prevent a build-up of lactic acid and improve recovery, preventing any Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. Copper compression socks will help revive your tired feet faster.

Protects Against Any Kind of Bacterial Infections while Travelling

The copper infused ions have been proven to rupture and penetrate the cell wall of bacteria, fungi and viruses. 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 pathogens microbes, including superbugs, to be destroyed on your feet.

Travellers are often harassed by the trouble of standing in line, carrying heavy luggage around the airport, and sitting for hours at a time in cramped spaces. These situations tend to cause poor circulation in your feet which leads to foot strain, swollen ankles, blood clots, and even “DVT”.

Wearing copper infused compression socks turns normal socks into natural, non-chemical and long-lasting germ fighters that help your skin fight against diseases and infections. Since your feet are the most at risk of coming in contact with dirty surfaces, these socks are best suited to protecting your feet. Copper compression socks are infused with copper ions and are designed to last the lifespan of the socks. 

Copper compression socks are the must-have travel socks for every traveller who enjoys travelling in comfort.
