I saw Strongbody at a show in California! I was originally drawn to the companies hashtag #ChooseToBeBetter. That was a hashtag I could get on board with! So I met the couple that owns and started Storongbody at their booth in California! I love the feel of their fabric and the design, the sharp red line of venting that was cut down the back of the shirt was not only beautiful, but functional for your workout as well! Read about them and their companies philosophy, I am sure you will agree that this company is Choosing to Be Better!!

ECO FRIENDLY TECHNOLOGY
INNOVATION CHANGES EVERYTHING
We have researched and tested hundreds of fabrics and performance technologies and our Nano Elite+ does it all, but better! Engineered for unmatched style and function, Strongbody Apparel introduces technologically advanced activewear for working out, or hanging out. Strongbody’s products deliver superior performance by incorporating nanotechnology from the ocean. The magic ingredient, chitosan is a linear polysaccharide harnessed from the shells of crustaceans, and inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria on your clothing. The antimicrobial solution is adhered to the textiles via an aqueous solution, and the nano and submicron dimensions of the molecules enhance the durability and feel of the fabrics. The technology is also non toxic and environmentally friendly, and is safe for those with shell fish allergies.
This innovative technology is certified by the US Environmental Protection Agency and transforms a byproduct of the fishing industry into a natural and renewable performance technology, bringing even more performance benefits to Strongbody athletes. Strongbody Apparel is optimizing it’s products to be easy on the world, and on the one doing laundry.
Chitosan has been used as everything from a dietary supplement t o a blood-clotting agent in bandages . It also happens to be naturally antimicrobial and safe for those who are allergic to shellfish.
