“Increase your C” is common seasonal advice for warding off a winter cold and Sox For Horses, Inc.--already a leader in cutting-edge silver fiber science with its Summer Whinnys--is doing exactly that, upping the “C” in equine “care” through the use of the groundbreaking fiber, Celliant, in its SFH line of winter socks for horses, Whinny Warmers.
“I never stop looking at advances in fiber science,” said Raymond Petterson, president of Sox For Horses, Inc. “I knew Whinny Warmers should be made with this yarn, and in doing so reach a whole new level of winter leg protection and therapy for equines suffering during cold winter temperatures from arthritis or circulation-impairing conditions like IR, Cushing, equine metabolic syndrome, founder and laminitis.”
Celliant is the world’s most technologically advanced infrared energy fiber that encourages not only alleviation of pain and other negative symptoms, but an actual improvement of the body's natural systems.
Celliant's blend of proprietary ingredients absorbs light (both visible and infrared) and changes the wavelength to a form beneficial to the body. The energy from this light improves blood flow in the targeted 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 tissue oxygen levels help muscles and joints combat stiffness, soreness and edema caused by aging, injury or arthritis.
Infrared light is a naturally occurring wavelength just outside the visible light spectrum. Not to be confused with UV light, which is on the opposite end of the spectrum, infrared is widely recognized for having positive effects on the body. It is a medically proven vasodilator, which means it promotes circulation, increases tissue oxygen levels, enhances cell vitality and regulates body temperature.
One key mineral in Celliant is titanium dioxide, which is a photocatalytic, or light-absorbing mineral. Electromagnetic energy given off by the body is absorbed (typically in the infrared and visible light ranges) and then remitted back to the body with modified wavelengths. This energy is then able to reach more deeply into the tissue due to the increased refraction and light scattering properties of the minerals in Celliant. In the tissue, the energy vasodilates (opens) blood vessels and allows more oxygenated blood flow to reach poorly circulating areas. The increased blood flow and tissue oxygen levels help muscles and joints combat stiffness, soreness and edema caused by aging, injury or arthritis.
Products containing Celliant have no adverse effects as they work directly with the body to enable it to be more effective, and as such, can be used continually.
Just as the silver used in Sox For Horses Summer Whinnys never washes out of the yarn, Celliant is also an embedded technology that never washes out. Horse owners can also feel confident that the fiber is non-toxic and biologically benign, working with the body to help it do what comes naturally.
