About Celliant® Celliant® is a proprietary fiber loaded with a potent mix of thermo-reactive minerals. It recycles and converts radiant body heat into infrared energy which gives the body a measurable boost.
Celliant’s blend of proprietary ingredients reflect light (both visible and infrared) back to the body. Celliant changes the wavelength of the light so that it is more easily absorbed. The energy from this light improves blood flow in the target area. Celliant works by increasing the amount of blood traveling into the affected area, not by causing the blood to absorb more oxygen. The increased blood flow and blood oxygen levels help muscles and joints combat stiffness, soreness and edema caused by aging, injury or arthritis. Many satisfied users have described the effects of better oxygenation on the body. Recently the beneficial effects of Celliant fabrics have been measured in a series of clinical studies. The first studies focused on diabetics, then among healthy subjects. Technologies like hyperbaric oxygen chambers claim to improve oxygen levels by causing you to breath in air rich in oxygen. Typical blood cells, however, are already 95-100% saturated with oxygen when they reach their destination.
Products containing Celliant have no adverse effects as they work directly with the body. All Draper Therapies products are safe to use continually and without build up times.
The FDA has determined that Celliant products are medical devices as defined in section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and are general wellness products. As such, the FDA has found that products containing Celliant:
Increase Energy – This energy penetrates the muscle and tissue to promote a temporary increase in local blood flow
Helps increase comfort and promotes restful sleep
