Nanobionic® are mineral based and bio-ceramic coating on microfibers clothes based on newly developed high-tech textile. Previous studies have shown that use of these vests has positive effects on athletic performance; however, the mechanism of function remains unknown. In the current report we provide evidence that these clothes have a high energy emission up to 99%, giving it the most positive results of emitting infrared rays. Moreover, we demonstrate that mild use of Nanobionic® clothing (2 hours/day for 6 days) reduce free radical levels in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in two-thirds of healthy volunteers ranging from 9.13 to 95.38%. Given these findings we have also examined Nanobionic® clothing effects on a pathophysiological condition that is linked to oxidative stress and free radicals, namely, Raynaud syndrome which is a rare blood disease. Importantly, we have recorded a significant increase in hands’ temperature in these patients. In conclusion, this report demonstrates the beneficial effects of Nanobionic® vests in reducing free radical levels in healthy individuals as well as in patients suffering from free-radical-related disorders.
