Quality sleep is a major factor in getting the recovery our bodies need, especially after a good workout. Look to the elites for more proof: top athletes like Tom Brady credit a good night’s rest as one of the key components in sustaining peak performance. His top tips for better sleep? Shutting down electronic devices 30 minutes before bedtime and creating a quiet environment to rest in.
There’s a new kid on the block, though, and it’s backed by science: recovery sleepwear. These products leverage on the use of far-infrared (FIR) emissions to better aid your body’s natural recovery process during sleep. Check out this NIH independent study on the use of FIR.
Under Armour: Athlete Recovery Sleepwear
Makes sense that Tom Brady himself champions a range of products designed to help your body rebuild overnight. Under Armour’s Athlete Recovery Sleepwear uses soft bioceramic prints to absorb your body’s natural heat and reflect far-infrared emissions back to the skin. According to Under Armour, the sleepwear range ““helps your body recover faster, promotes better sleep, reduces inflammation, and regulates cell metabolism.”
C3fit’s Re-Pose range is conditioning wear designed specifically for recovery purposes. It’s developed in collaboration with Dr. Norinaga Shimizu, Doctor of Medicine and Professor Emeritus at Osaka Prefecture University. Dr. Shimizu has been studying preventive medicine for the past thirty years with a focus on environmental adaptation and sleep management.
Re-Pose prides itself on superior far-infrared emission by photoelectron fabric, along with silhouettes that gently hug the body. Their range of products support your body’s recovery process while keeping your rest ultra comfortable.
