SAMINA takes inspiration from nature which is where every innovation starts and is especially true for the patented SAMINA Bio-Ceramic organic cotton fabric for bedding. From observing nature and traditional natural medicine concepts, founder Dr. Gunther Amann-Jennson says,
“SAMINA utilizes the forces and intelligence of nature for better sleep and thus for better healthy, performance, and vitality. This involves two important elements of nature: one is the health-promoting far-infrared radiation, the other is atmospheric electricity, in particular negative ions. Modern man receives too little of both compromising well-being, vitality, and health.”
The SAMINA Sleep System combines all elements needed for proper rest into handcrafted layers made with the highest quality natural materials. Let’s uncover the unique benefits of Bio-Ceramic® Organic bedding, one of SAMINA’s secrets to a good night’s sleep.
What is Bio-Ceramic?
Before we dig into the benefits and why SAMINA developed its bio-ceramic organic cotton in the first place, let’s answer the question, “What is bio-ceramic?”
Bioceramics are made when various ceramics and mineral oxides are mixed together and heated to nearly 3,000 degrees [Fahrenheit]. Once the material is cooled, it becomes bioceramic. The bioceramic material then naturally emits FIR [far infrared radiation].[i]
Bio-ceramic materials have been used broadly in medicine to replace bone in hips and knees. They are also used for dental implants. More recently, because bio-ceramics emit far infrared radiation (or FIR), their use has been expanded to athletic clothing and even the pajamas worn by elite athlete, Tom Brady.
Bioceramics interact with the body where appropriate, and don’t interact where we don’t want them to. [ii]
Benefits of Bio-Ceramic Bedding for Sleep
SAMINA’s founder, Dr. Amann-Jennson, along with other scientists, fused mineral oxides and crystals to create a bio-ceramic coating for organic cotton threads. This resulted in the SAMINA Bio-Ceramic® bedding that’s used in many SAMINA products such as duvets, wool mattress toppers, and pillows.
Minerals and crystals release electro-magnetic waves at their inherent frequency and have unique properties. For example, some minerals have frequencies matching the human body. Quartz crystals can convert pressure into electric charges while tourmaline converts heat into electrical charges. Serpentine has antibacterial and deodorizing properties. SAMINA uses both and more to promote health benefits from their unique properties while you sleep.
Like its use in athletic wear, bio-ceramic material has advantages to ensure that you wake up fully rested and recharged. See our list of top reasons to consider bio-ceramic bedding to improve your nightly sleep and your daily wellbeing.
1. Balance Body Temperature Throughout the Night
Sleep disruptions are a real problem. When you wake up in the middle of the night, you break the cycle of healthy sleep which makes you feel tired and grumpy in the morning. When you’re too hot, this increases alertness and decreases slow-wave and rapid-eye-movement sleep and why your core body temperature is so important in determining the quality of your sleep.
In addition, exposure to humid heat increases thermal load while you’re asleep affecting sleep stages and thermoregulation. A recent study showed 41% of primary care patients sweat during the night causing sleep disruptions due to an improper body temperature.
The materials used in SAMINA Bio-Ceramic organic cotton bedding are of vital importance since they have properties that help balance temperature and absorb humidity. This effective combination offers the ideal foundation for a dry, warm sleeping environment with fewer sleep disruptions and a cleaner bed and bedroom.
2. Infrared Energy for an Elevated Sleeping Experience
We tend to link infrared radiation to something harmful, yet it can also have some positive effects on the human body. SAMINA’s bio-ceramic bedding uses the combined synthesis of several minerals and crystals that give the fabric the ability to absorb and store light during the night. In the morning, the infrared radiation in the atmosphere activates body heat and is sent into the body.
Positive effects of far infrared radiation in the human body promote vital microcirculation for optimal energy balance. Infrared radiation can ease muscle tension and encourage localized blood circulation. Moreover, infrared energy has a positive effect on pain relief and recovery, therefore ensuring healthy sleep all night so you wake up feeling good the next morning.
3. Negative Ions for More Restful Sleep
The minerals in each bio-ceramic thread produce negative ions that, in turn, promote sleep. The negative ions convert stored heat into an electrical charge. Again, don’t be taken back by the word “negative” because when it comes to ions, they’re actually good for your sleep.
For instance, negative ions have several benefits to overall health including: fewer symptoms of depression, a positive influence on cognitive performance, and antimicrobial properties.
Incorporated in SAMINA’s bio-ceramic bedding, negative ions can also improve sleep. The body spontaneously warms up due to the far-infrared wavelength without raising the temperature outside, which is extremely beneficial for those who tend to be “freezing” when they sleep or generally feel cold during the night.
Therapeutic Benefits While You Sleep
The SAMINA Sleep System combines all the layers needed to support the body during the sleep process. Each layer, combined with the others, ensures fewer disruptions to your sleep. Now, you can stay asleep all night, keep the proper body temperature to not overheat and sweat, and have no back pain. With SAMINA, you can wake up feeling rested and ready to go!
SAMINA Bio-Ceramic bedding uses a blend of 40% bio-ceramic yarn and 60% organic cotton. This unique material is in most styles of SAMINA duvets, pillows, and mattress toppers as a cozy covering around fresh sheep’s wool.
Bio-ceramic bedding is a SAMINA patented invention designed exclusively for gentle therapeutic health benefits while you sleep. This is the SAMINA healthy sleep concept. In summary, some of the benefits from sleeping in bio-ceramic bedding vary from additional comfort in bed, optimal warmth and body temperature, and physical benefits like micro-circulation and better sleep.
