What are infrared textiles?
Infrared textiles are just that – a textile using technology that recycles infrared and visible light into energy. When placed near the body, within six layers of fabric, this energy is redirected back to the body, increasing blood flow and oxygen levels of local body tissues.
The increased tissue perfusion of oxygen can help joints and muscles fight stiffness, soreness and swelling caused by aging, injury, or arthritis.
The beneficial effects of the infrared textile have been measured in a series of independent clinical studies.
Products containing our IR active technology were designed to and have been shown to:
~Enhance tissue oxygen levels in the body
~Stimulate quicker recovery and healing
~Heighten strength and athletic performance
~Balance body temperature
-Improve sleep quality (bedding)
You may ask, “How can a textile improve circulation?” Our textiles were developed in the 1990’s in Asia as a way to improve natural healing through placing fibers with healing properties in the center of wrapped textile yarns to be used in clothing and other textiles. The blend of minerals reflect light (both visible and infrared) back to the body by changing the wavelength of the light, making it more easily absorbed by the body. This energy improves blood flow circulation in the target area.
More circulation means more oxygen, more recovery, and less pain, allowing you to do more of the things you want to do. Your muscles feel healthier, giving you more energy and making you feel better. Soreness vanishes and wounds heal faster because your body is receiving the boost of circulation it needs to expedite the natural healing process. Increased circulation results in increased healing, recovery and comfort. Such effects occur using products featuring infrared textiles.
Our textiles can also give athletes an edge against the competition. Oxygen levels are increased with use of IR products and along with nutrients give the body an extra performance boost and quicker recovery time. Our textiles have been shown to increase blood oxygen levels in athletes by 8-12% (Lavery, 2003; McClue, 2005).
Although preliminary studies have been done, these statements have not yet been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Products made with Energy Textile fibers are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
