ALPINE, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Every athlete, no matter what level they compete at, knows that training and practice weigh heavily on the outcome of each competition. But more importantly, are they aware of the rising incidence of incapacitating ‘superbugs’ that live in locker rooms, health clubs, gymnasiums and schools? Microorganisms such as E. coli, Staph, and MRSA can put a serious damper on a person’s ability to perform well in a sport, especially if they are not managed properly. These types of infections can and will spread to others, while possibly leading to season and/or career-ending injuries.
As an MMA Champion athlete, Rich Franklin knows all too well about germs and how easily they spread. During training he dealt with them on a regular basis, but it wasn’t until the first time he had staph, did he realize these infections could cost him a victory. Now, working in a global setting, Franklin trains in locations around the world which leaves him exposed to a plethora of bacteria and fungi. So he teamed up with American Biotech Labs (ABL) to develop Armor Gel, nano silver-based, wound dressing gel that can stay active on the skin for up to seventy-two hours (3 days). Using patented nano silver technology, Armor Gel has been scientifically tested to reduce the levels of bacteria and other pathogens, while forming a protective barrier “armor” over the wound. By shielding the body from external bacterial, the body’s natural healing process can be expedited. Its use is recommended by doctors, trainers, coaches, and athletes alike.
“I started using Armor Gel on lacerations as protection against infections and to reduce healing time to get me back into the cage faster. Armor Gel should be in every athlete's training bag,” explains Franklin.
Engineered for today’s modern athletes, Armor Gel is safe, nontoxic and provides a personal first line of defense. Already proven to reduce the levels of MRSA, VRE, pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli, A. niger and Candida albicans, Armor Gel is formulated using a unique and patented 24 SilverSol Technology®.
American Biotech Labs (ABL) was started in 2002 as a nano silver biotech company with the goal of creating a more stable and powerful silver technology for consumer products. www.armor-gel.com/richfranklin
