These days when it comes to health, there are so many conflicting ideas, it’s hard to get to the truth. Some days it seems like red wine is good for you and the next day it’s bad. The same can be said for red meat, salt, eggs, butter and the list goes one.
If you’ve heard of Celliant before, you might wonder whether or not Celliant fibres actually heal. Well, we are here clear up some of the uncertainty.
First a little background on Celliant. Celliant is a synthetic fibre that is created with a potent mix of thermo-reactive minerals. The fibres, which can be used to make mattresses, are activated by our own metabolism, and they recycle and convert radiant body heat into infrared energy which improves and increases the natural healing process that occurs while people sleep.
It almost sounds too good to be true, that your body can use the mattress you sleep on to help accelerate the natural healing process. But as more studies are done on the material, the evidence becomes more conclusive, Celliant fibres do actually help you heal.
There have been studies done at prominent universities that come to the same conclusion. For example, in 2003, a study conducted by Dr. Lawrence Lavery of Loyola Medical University Center in Illinois found that leg pain can be diminished by increasing circulation and improving the oxygenation of the blood.
In 2008, Dr. Ian Gordon conducted a study that looked at chronic foot pain. He asked his subjects to wear socks containing Celliant technology to bed, and had others wear placebo socks. He found that people wearing the socks with Celliant fibres found their pain reduced by almost three times as much as those wearing the socks without the fibres.
Then in 2009, Dr. Marcel Hung of the University of California Irvine conducted a study at the university’s Center for Sleep Medicine to see if people with chronic back pain would see a reduction in their pain if they slept on a mattress cover made with Celliant fibres. The study showed that sleeping on mattress covers with Celliant fibres allowed subjects to experience a more restful and overall more healthy sleep, with less disturbances and a significant reduction in back pain when they woke up the next morning.
The technology works because Celliant fibres absorb the infrared energy emitted from the body, then redistribute it back through the body. Once the energy reaches to about four centimetres deep inside the body, it starts to increase the nitric oxide production in the body, which in turn, allows for more oxygen in the bloodstream. This process causes the body’s cells to function more efficiently and this has a positive impact on how fast we heal, allowing our muscle tissue, strains, bruises and other painful issue fade away.
As we get older, our body’s natural processes begin to slow down, including our ability to heal ourselves. While an aging person’s body still has the ability to heal itself, a little help is never a bad thing. Especially when all you have to do is fall asleep and let the brilliant technology of Celliant fibre do what they are meant to do.
