Celliant Fibers: How They Enhance Your Sleep

Cover of BioPosture

You might belong to the growing population of individuals who cannot get a healthy night’s sleep on a regular basis. This is further aggravated if you own a mattress that does not provide the right comfort and support that is required on a nightly basis. Many people get disappointed when they realize the ineffectiveness of their sleeping aids that do not promote their main purpose of providing comfort. You might be one of these people who are getting discouraged when it comes to finding a solution to improve your sleeping habits. The good news is that there is a scientifically proven product that can improve not only your sleeping habits. It also improves your overall health. Celliant fibers are a scientific breakthrough that can aid anyone who has difficulty sleeping on traditional mattresses and bedding materials to obtain regularly a restful sleep.

Celliant fibers have clinical studies that prove that these decrease the physical pain experienced by individuals upon waking up. Celliant also promotes REM sleep. The fabric has 13 thermos-reactive minerals that utilize their own body heat and energy of the sleeper to provide a comfortable night’s sleep on a daily basis.

The Science Behind Celliant Fibers

Thermos–reactive containing Celliant fibers are effective at improving sleep. During sleep, bodies emit infrared energy in the form of body heat. Most individuals find it difficult to maintain a comfortable temperature as this normal body heat escapes the person. Celliant fibers are the answer to this as an individual can harness his own body heat to his advantage when asleep.

Celliant fibers regulate body temperature, make one comfortable under the sheets and cover, allows one to sleep comfortably through the night, and heals one while asleep. The thermos-reactive minerals in Celliant fibers redistribute infrared energy through the body. This increases the blood’s level of oxygen, thus promoting better circulation. Better circulation permits faster healing of the muscle and other tissue while sleeping that allows one to feel better when waking up.

Benefits of Celliant Fibers

  • Illumination   Infrared light belongs to the electromagnetic spectrum that occurs naturally just outside the visible light spectrum. Most confused infrared light with Ultraviolet light. These two are found on the opposite sides of the spectrum. Infrared is scientifically and medically proven as a vasodilator. This means that it improves circulation, improves cell vitality, increases oxygen levels in the tissue, and regulates body temperature. Medical doctors commonly utilize infrared light as therapy for medical conditions such as high blood pressure, muscle tears, congestive heart failure, and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Circulation Infrared light improves blood flow of tissues throughout the body. This delivers important nutrients while improving levels of oxygen.
  • Cell Performance and Recovery – A body improves its performance as the cells grow stronger. The Celliant fibers generated the infrared energy that stimulates cell performance and regeneration. Circulation is increased which provides higher amounts of oxygen. An improved cell function relates to a faster healing of injuries, faster termination of pain, and amplification of stamina and endurance.
  • Temperature Regulation – The body has its own thermostat. Body heat is regulated by the circulatory system. Celliant assists the body in maintaining its ideal temperature by optimizing blood flow.
  • Better Sleep – Clinical trials have shown that beddings that use Celliant improve sleep which we will get into the details later. A pilot study concludes that sleepers fall asleep 15 minutes faster on average.
  • General Well-Being – Customers who buy and use Celliant made textiles provide feedback that they have more energy, a better sense of well-being, and enhanced quality of life.
  • Durability – Celliant does not wear out. The minerals are embedded into the fiber. Thus, Celliant effects do not decrease during washing. Celliant does not wear out like coated textiles.

How is Celliant used?

Celliant provides the advantages of infrared light to all applications where textiles are being used. This does not include only in the mattress industry but it also includes clothing, veterinary, and health care. The mineral blend can be changed to suit the needs of various applications and products.

Celliant can be purchased as a raw fiber or is embedded into yarns and various fabrics. These include wool blends, cotton, Spandex, Lycra, and Nylon.

How Does Celliant Work?

Most are not easily convinced when it comes to the effectiveness of a product. Celliant’s declaration of an energy efficient fabric has been checked and double checked. There are many third-party verifications that have been done with the product. Moreover, a number of scientists are conducting tests on the product.

Celliant’s parent company Hologenix, started in 2011 a Science Advisory Board to create products that were scientifically sound. Currently, this board is composed of medical doctors from various fields such as diabetes and wound care, nanotechnology, sleep medicine, and photobiology. The main goal is to generate and conduct testing procedures that will verify the truth in the claims of Celliant.

In addition to the testing done by the Science Advisory Board, Celliant fiber has undergone clinical trials by various universities that include University of California Irvine, University of Calgary, Loyola University Chicago, Texas A&M University. Moreover, it was also tested by third party research institutes such as UCI Long Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center. All of these have verified that Celliant technology is efficient at heat recycling and conservation.

Celliant Clinical Trials

Celliant has been subjected to trials by premiere universities that include University of California, Irvine, Texas A&M University, and other international studies by University of Calgary. Currently, Celliant has been verified by third parties in more than nine clinical trials by research institutions and different academic institutions. Celliant fibers have been verified by these clinical trials that they increase comfort, increase the level of oxygen in the body, assists in healing because of the increased oxygenation levels, and regulates body temperature.

1. Celliant (formerly Holofiber) Blood Flow Studies, Dr. Lawrence Lavery (2003)

INTRODUCTION: Celliant is an advanced technology that is purposefully meant to improve the levels of oxygen in the body. Celliant products have been medically proven to increase comfort, relieve pain, and assist in healing through an increase in the levels of oxygen and regulation of body temperature. Here is a 2003 double-blind study conducted to measure Celliant’s ability to increase levels of oxygen in the skin.

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY: Lawrence A. Lavery, DPM, MPH conducted the study. Dr. Lavery is also an Associate Professor in University of the Loyola University Medical Center and Hines Veterans Administration Hospital in Chicago’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery and Rehabilitation. He compared 100% Celliant gloves and 50% Celliant socks to placebo products on 20 diabetic patients’ hands and feet. Transcutaneous oxygen was measured. This is a method of measuring oxygen in the body. This was conducted as a double-blind study. This implies that neither Dr. Lavery nor the participants have the knowledge which product contained Celliant until after measuring the results.

RESULTS OF THE STUDY: There was a significant difference with patients wearing Celliant products in terms of increase in transcutaneous oxygen after less than an hour. Observations have shown that there is an increase in every testing interval of ten minutes. According to Dr. Lavery, “This study provides objective evidence to support what many of us have observed or heard from people that have worn products enhanced with Celliant. It shows a significant increase in blood flow in the skin when study subjects wore the garments.”

Dr. Lavery further elaborates that the product is very beneficial as it has shown that an 8 to 14% improvement in oxygenation could increase circulation enough to improve healing of wound and elimination of leg pain caused by blood flow obstructions and atherosclerosis. He further reiterated that there is compelling evidence with the said significant changes.

2. Celliant (formerly Holofiber) Study of Thirteen (13) Healthy Subjects, Dr. Graham McClue (2005)

INTRODUCTION: Celliant is a specially formulated material that is made to improve levels of oxygen in the body. Celliant products have been medically proven to increase comfort, relieve pain, and assist in healing through an increase in the levels of oxygen and regulation of body temperature. Here is a 2005 double-blind study conducted to measure Celliant’s ability to increase levels of oxygen in the skin (TCPO2).

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY: Graham M. McClue, Ph.D., conducted a study. He is a researcher of an independent research facility in Houston, Texas named as Hyperbaric Treatment & Training Services Ltd. He compared 100% Celliant gloves and 50% Celliant socks to placebo products of 13 healthy subjects’ hands and feet. Transcutaneous oxygen was measured. This is a method of measuring oxygen in the body. This was conducted as a double-blind study. This implies that neither Dr. McClue nor the participants have the knowledge which product contained Celliant until after measuring the results

RESULTS OF THE STUDY: The study showed that there is a significant increase in transcutaneous oxygen in patients that wore the products. The said 10% to 24% increase was significant. According to Dr. McClue, “Celliant does, in fact, increase oxygen profusion levels by 10% to 24% in a healthy non-compromised population.”

Dr. McLue reiterates that an increase in the profusion of oxygen increases energy. Energy generated at the level of cells will hasten recovery of muscle tissue from exercise, decrease cramping, muscle fatigue, edema, and generate strength in muscles damaged by exercise.

3. Pilot Sleep Study, Dr. Marcel Hungs (2009-2010)

INTRODUCTION: Celliant is an advanced technology that is purposefully meant to improve the levels of oxygen in the body. Celliant products have been medically proven to increase comfort, relieve pain, and assist in healing through an increase in the levels of oxygen and regulation of body temperature. Here is a 2009 study conducted to measure Celliant’s ability to increase levels of oxygen in the skin (TCPO2).

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY: Dr. Marcel Hungs conducted the trial in 2009 at the Irvine Medical Center of the University of California. He is an Attending Staff Physician at the University of Irvine Medical Center and Attending Staff Physician at the VA Medical Center in Long Beach, CA.  as well as director for the Center of Sleep Medicine. The study was double-blind, single, center, controlled by placebo, and a cross-over pilot trial. The institutional review board approved this study.

Six healthy patients were the subjects of this study. They had sleep disturbances because of chronic lower back pain. Subjects were required to fill out studies for sleep quality, pain, and additional clinical global impression scales for sleep and pain. Baseline readings were done for two weeks. After which, each patient was provided with a placebo mattress or a Celliant covered mattress to be used for the next two weeks. A washout period was then administered that lasted for a week. Another two weeks were spent using either placebo mattress or Celliant (whichever was not used during the first trial) were utilized.

RESULTS OF THE STUDY: The average time spent awake at night after falling asleep was decreased by 18.3 minutes. Patients indicated that they received more sleep as they spent an average of 42 minutes less time asleep. The efficiency of average sleep improved by 2.6%. Three of the six participants reported a sleep improvement through the use of the active garment mattress cover as indicated in the Clinical Global Impression Scale. Moreover, two subjects reported that there was an improvement in their nocturnal back pain through the utilization of the active garment as indicated in the Clinical Global Impression scale for pain. This encouraging result stimulated the study to have an additional 12 patients who began testing the in the latter part of 2010.
