Copper Fit® Compression Gloves compression products are manufactured with copper ions bound at the fiber level during the manufacturing process. Our copper fiber process will not easily wash out or quickly wear away, and has been tested to remain effective for numerous washes. More important, copper is environmentally friendly, a natural mineral, and is a required nutrient of many ecosystems present in nature.
For thousands of years people have appreciated copper's many natural properties. Ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Aztecs used copper for many purposes, and it is known to possess properties that protect against odors and other benefits.

Compression garments have long been known for providing muscle and circulatory support. Doctors often prescribe compression garments to help treat varicose veins, to avoid dangerous clots and thrombosis, to avoid blood pooling in the extremities, and to treat low blood pressure.

Many athletes and celebrities swear by their compression sleeves- claiming they have more energy, their muscles work more efficiently, and they avoid injury while exercising.2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
