What is Celliant and why is Tom Brady wearing it to bed?

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.

 Haven Mattress is one of a handful of premium bed makers that use Celliant in their mattress designs.
