Health trends can be hard to keep up with—there’s always some new product on the market claiming to perform miracles. From deep in the Amazon to the high mountains in Tibet, it feels like there’s a new gimmick (backed by a great new marketing campaign) every week.
The problem is that few of these are backed by science.
If you’ve heard of Celliant fiber technology before, you might know that they Celliant fibers are making waves in the world of healing technology, especially in the world of mattresses. You might also be wondering if what you can trust what you hear.
If the words “Celliant fiber technology” are new to you, here’s some background:
In a nutshell, Celliant is “a revolutionary, patented technology that harnesses and recycles the body’s natural energy through the medium of fibers.”
To put it another way, Celliant is a synthetic fibre that is created with a mix of thermo-reactive minerals, including Titanium Dioxide, Silicone Dioxide and Aluminum Oxide (among others). The minerals are ground into a fine powder and then added to liquid polyester resin that is manufactured into a fiber.
The fibers, which can be used to make mattresses, are also used in apparel, medical, and veterinary products.
As mentioned, the minerals are thermo-reactive, which means that they can be activated by our own metabolism while we sleep. These minerals “alter the wavelengths of this energy and reflect them back to the body, even through multiple layers of fabrics, making it possible for the tissue to absorb it.”
The benefit of this technology is “improved circulation resulting in an average increase in tissue oxygenation of 7%. The result: your body uses oxygen more efficiently.”
When your body uses more oxygen efficiently, it speeds up how efficiently it can heal itself. 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 in mattresses do actually help you heal while you sleep!
The evidence continues to mount in favour of this revolutionary technology. After nine clinical trials, Celliant fiber technology is the most established and clinically tested infrared-optimized textile in the industry. The company’s Scientific Advisory Board includes individuals from highly respected establishments, including the University of Calgary, Loyola University (Chicago), University of California Irvine and Texas University A&M.
Bodies are incredible machines, and we put them through a lot every single day. From what we eat to what we breathe to what we think, smell, hear and feel, bodies are constantly processing information and working to create balanced systems. Not to mention that they are constantly fighting off sickness and trying to heal everything from cuts and scrapes to far more serious illnesses. We could all use a little extra boost to give our bodies a break in all it does.
As we age, our body’s natural processes begin to slow down, including our ability to heal ourselves. A little help is never a bad thing, especially when all you have to do is fall asleep and let the groundbreaking technology of Celliant fiber do the rest of the work.
