Bioceramic beads have natural minerals which carry FIR energy. FIR energy is well known and used by oriental medicine for many generations. An article from Chinese Journal of Physiology in 2015 explains the far infrared ray emitting bioceramic material and its effect on the living cells.
Current Trends in Fashion Technology & Textile Engineering
With the recent developments of nanotechnology the textile industry introduced health fabrics which emit far infrared energy. FIR energy can penetrate up to4 centimeters (about 1-1/2 inches), exciting the vibrational energy of molecules and resonating with cellular frequencies. It is clinically proven that FIR emitting fabrics promote metabolism and blood circulation in the body.
