According to Hologenix:

Products made with Celliant fabric absorb and convert body heat into infrared energy (IR) that is recycled back into skin and tissue in a safe, natural way. IR is a vasodilator, increasing blood flow to tissue and muscles throughout the body, which delivers vital nutrients and oxygen to the cells. The effect is clinically proven to help the body:

  • increase energy, endurance, stamina and performance,
  • recover faster from physical activity,
  • promote restful sleep and increased comfort.

Under Armor just released a line of pajamas that apparently Tom Brady wears to help with recovery. I believe these pajamas use celliant technolgy. Underarmor is calling them bioceramics but I think it’s the same thing.

Celliant™ technology is a patented process for adding micron sized optically active quartz, silicon oxide and titanium oxide particles to polymer fibers. The resulting Celliant™ yarns are believed to have unique effects on the electromagnetic energy environment of the skin in the visible and near infrared portion of the spectrum leading to increased blood flow and oxygen levels.

Celliant is a brand-name synthetic fiber made from polyethylene terephthalate . Celliant has been shown to increase oxygenation in body tissue and demonstrated to reduce minor aches and pains. It was initially marketed as Holofiber. The name was later changed to Celliant to avoid confusion about the nature of the core of its fiber. Celliant has been shown to interact with infrared light produced by the human body to achieve the increased oxygenation.

Celliant is a very promising technology that can provide added health benefit while you sleep. In simple terms, Celliant takes your body heat which emits non-visible light and reflects it back into the body. Light therapy has been used to help treat jaundice in infants and speed up recovery time for athletes as well as stimulate other metabolic processes.  Currently, NASA is experimenting with light therapy to regulate the sleep of astronauts.

Celliant yarn first came on the scene in 2008 and was first used at horse shows to help horses recover faster from strains and muscle soreness.  Since then it has been incorporated into high tech clothing, hospitals and bedding.

You can now even buy celliant clothes. You can buy celliant clothes on Amazon from Xpro Gear.

Right now you can get the benefits of celliant technology while you sleep through the following companies.

Bear Mattress, which uses a top layer of celliant on its bed. A Bear Mattress Review is forthcoming which will not only test the celliant technology but also the overall feel of the mattress itself.

PureCare which has both a mattress protector and celliant sheets that utilize celliant technology.

As research grows on this textile, expect to see it in many more brand name wearable products.  If you need to sleep anyway, you might as well optimize your productivity while you sleep. Any slight advantage or optimization of your sleep will reap dividends the following day in terms of productivity, mood and attention. That advantage will compound day after day so the investment in celliant would certainly be worth it!

If you hate making your bed every day, if you hate how your top sheet always winds up on your significant other’s side of the bed, then you really need to think about Simplified Bedding.

Simplified Bedding is one of those inventions where you wonder why someone hadn’t thought of this decades ago because it make so much sense. The Simplified Bedding system is basically a duvet cover with a top sheet attached to it by a zipper and some Velcro.

By attaching the top sheet to the duvet cover, the system eliminates the problems of losing your top sheet at night. It also makes it super easy to make your bed because your sheet is already aligned perfectly with your duvet cover so you don’t have to worry about it sticking out.

Simplified Bedding is perfect for people who have better things to do that worry that their bed looks well made. You could argue that just sleeping without a top sheet would make more sense but that’s the genius behind Simplified Bedding. The top sheet keeps your duvet clean and it’s easy to remove the top sheet from the duvet to clean it. It means a cleaner duvet and less wear and tear on your duvet from the washing machine.

If you have kids at home this product makes perfect sense. It’s easy for a kid to have a well made bed in less time. I hate making my own bed let alone my children’s beds so this is one small victory for parents.

The fabric is 100% cotton 300 thread count. The duvet cover also has built in corner ties for a better fit. It’s super soft and cozy!

Simplified Bedding has a patent on this technology so you may not see anything like it anytime soon. If you like the idea of saving time and having a tidy bedroom, this product can’t be beat.
