Scientific Research on Celliant
In a 2009 study published in the Journal of Thermal Biology, researchers tested the fabric’s ability to recycle human body heat into infrared energy, which is then re-emitted back to the body (1). The results indicated that fabrics incorporated with Celliant were significantly more effective in utilizing the human body’s naturally generated heat compared to standard textiles. This could potentially provide performance and recovery advantages, particularly in athletic contexts.
A 2013 clinical trial further examined the performance benefits of Celliant, focusing specifically on its potential to improve muscular strength and endurance (2). Results showed that individuals wearing garments infused with Celliant demonstrated significant improvements in their physical performance measures compared to those using regular clothing. This study suggested that the re-emission of infrared energy could have a positive impact on muscular performance and recovery.
Perhaps one of the most compelling areas of Celliant research relates to its impact on sleep quality. A peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine in 2014 showed that participants who used Celliant-infused mattress covers had improved sleep quality and increased periods of restful sleep compared to those using a regular cover (3). The findings suggested that Celliant’s energy recycling properties may enhance the overall sleep experience, an attribute that has since been used to market a variety of sleep-enhancing products.
More recently, in 2022, a study in the Journal of Sports Science & Medicine demonstrated that the use of Celliant-infused garments led to a significant reduction in delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) among athletes (4). The authors concluded that the infrared energy re-emission associated with Celliant could support muscle recovery and mitigate the effects of strenuous exercise.
While the existing body of research points to numerous potential benefits of Celliant, some scientists argue that further research is needed. They call for larger-scale studies and more rigorous methodologies to fully establish and understand the extent of Celliant’s effects on the human body.
