Although Armor gel is designed for cuts, lacerations, abrasions, 1st and 2nd degree burns as well as skin irritations, I use it preventatively as well. Before I stepped onto the mat in Cambodia, I applied a coat of Armor Gel all over my body.
If you are anything like me, you are looking for the best holistic remedy to any ailment by avoiding toxins, pharmaceuticals or putting any other damaging chemical in your body. Armor Gel is a water-based formula, meaning it contains neither petroleum nor alcohol, while utilizing nano-silver technology.
A quick tutorial about silver…it is highly antibacterial. Medical instruments are made from silver to cut down on infection problems during surgery. The tradition of throwing coins into a fountain to make a wish came from people putting silver coins in wells to keep water from going rancid, because silver actually kills bacteria.
Armor Gel has FDA claims against Staph. Aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. Coli, MRSA and VRE, As well as fungi such as Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger. Once applied, it can create a barrier of protection against bacteria that can last up to 72 hours. When I am flying, I wipe the gel onto my face and into my nose to protect me from the bacteria cesspool while “trapped” in the fuselage of the plane.
I do not travel without this product…literally. When I do my next Appalachian Trail hike, it will be the only product I need in my first aid kit. I was scuba diving in Bali recently, and ended up terribly sunburned. Because Armor Gel is water based, applying it to my burn was quite soothing. It is not sticky and dries on the skin within seconds. I applied the gel to my burn several times before bed, and had no traces of burn when I woke up.
After all the recent cases of MRSA in the NFL, I am particularly careful when I am training on the turf at my gym. It is common to scrape elbows and knees on the turf, and Armor Gel is perfect for those situations. Several of my friends have had success using the gel on incisions for scar reduction. As a matter of fact, I have seen this product beneficial in so many applications it wasn’t particularly designed for. I basically ask my friends, “Did you apply Armor Gel?” It is like duct tape was for my father…it just seems to work on everything.
