The information below has been provided by the manufacturer of Nagayu CO2 Skin Therapy Products:
“What is Nagayu Skin Care?
“Nagayu is a compressed tablet consisting of carbon dioxide, hydrogen and bicarbonate. The system adds ions into the rinse following the shampoo, which has been an effective treatment on humans for years,” according to the manufacturer. This method originated in Nagayu, a small village located in southern Japan, where carbon dioxide occurs naturally in hot springs.
How Does Nagayu Work?
The tablet is placed in a special shower head and is immediately dissolved with fresh, running water. When the body absorbs bicarbonate ions through the skin it causes the body to synthesize and release nitric oxide into the inner lining of the blood vessel. This process increases blood circulation and oxygen absorption. When oxygen is absorbed, bicarbonate ions and carbon dioxide within the body are excreted as by products. This process helps in the maintaining of the pH levels in the blood and skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NAGAYU TREATMENT
Deep Cleaning and Odor Removal
The CO2 treatment has the ability to remove mineral waste in clogged pores, which causes odor, while preserving the natural moisture levels in your dog’s skin.
Medical Problems and Allergies
Dog’s skin is 1/3 the thickness of human skin. When the outer layer of skin is damaged it can cause an imbalance in the skin’s pH levels resulting in scabs, yeast, or oil build up. Using the CO2 treatment maintains the health and quality of your dog’s protective skin layers.
The effect of the bicarbonate ions, hydrogen ions, and the citric acid wash off mineral and silicon dirt clogged in the root hair. This results in a full, silky and healthy coat.
Results can typically be seen after one treatment, but like antibiotics, or other treatments, dogs with major skin issues will need follow-up baths for the treatment to work.” (Mountain View Animal Hospital and Holistic Pet Care adds: A Veterinarian should be consulted regarding any skin issues and allergies that your dog has).” The skin needs time to recuperate if the problem has been present for some time. While the Nagayu Skin Therapy Treatment will not cure skin problems, it will help alleviate the symptoms.”
