What is Bio-Ceramic?
Ceramic materials have a long history of use, primarily in heat reflection. For example, ceramic is applied to the exterior of space shuttles to reflect solar radiation. Bio-ceramic is a formula that consists of over 20 types of ceramic mixed with mineral oxides such as Silica Oxide (SiO2) and Aluminum Dioxide (Al2O3).
What are the benefits of Bio-Ceramic?
Research on the benefits and uses of Bio-Ceramic continues to this day, in particular the interaction with Far Infrared Rays. The difficulty of working with Bio-Ceramic is getting the material to reflect the correct FIR wavelength in the appropriate amount. When this is achieved, to the specifications of what our bodies can healthfully react to, the benefits are significant tissue regeneration improvements resulting in a reduction of chronic pain symptoms, typically caused by types of Arthritis and Raynaud’s Phenomenon.
What does Bio-Ceramic and Far Infrared have to do with each other?
Bio-Ceramic fabric has the unique ability to reflect and emit a subtle but noticeable amount of Far Infrared Rays (FIR). This trait is beneficial for the use of Far Infrared Therapy, a type of Naturopathic therapy that involves heating up tissue to increase blood circulation. This process in essence boosts natural healing mechanisms in our bodies which is what helps relieve chronic pain symptoms caused by Arthritis, Raynaud’s Phenomenon, Joint Inflammation and Sports Injuries. It’s important to understand how and why Far Infrared helps the human body and for more information visit our Far Infrared Therapy page.
How exactly is Bio-Ceramic made?
As previously mentioned, Bio-Ceramic is created by mixing over 20 types of ceramic together in a powered form, along with mineral oxides. This cocktail of science is transformed into a liquid state which can be fused onto Polypropylene fibers. The fibers are eventually woven into Bio-Ceramic fabric sheets. These sheets can be cut and made into therapeutic clothing items such as gloves, socks, joint bands, underwear, bedsheets, pillow cases; nearly anything imaginable.
