It 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 medical treatment on humans for years. This method originated in a small village named "Nagayu" located in southern Japan where carbon dioxide naturally occurs in hot springs.
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 maintenance of pH levels in the blood and skin.
The CO2 treatment has the ability to remove mineral waste in clogged pores which causes odour; while preserving the natural moisture levels in your dog's skin.
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 dogs protective skin layers.
The effect of the bicarbonate ions, hydrogen ions and citric acid wash off mineral and silicon dirt clogged in the hair root. 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. 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.
