Energy Production

The chemical unit of energy that powers our cells is Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). When you wear KYMIRA®Sport products, the infrared activates a molecule called Cytochrome C-Oxidase, a transmembrane protein in our mitochondria which mediates the production of ATP. Mitochondria are the power plants of our cells, where ATP is produced, and Cytochrome C-Oxidase is one of the gateways that allow workers through the power plant. By opening the gateway, ATP is production is increased and your cells have more fuel to carry out their functions.

Increased Oxygenation

In randomized double blind repeated measures studies, KYMIRA®products increased tissue oxygen levels by 20% on average compared against a host of control garments that used standard fabrics and/or compression. This increase was a building increase that both peaked and maintained after 70 minutes of wearing the KYMIRA®products.

Thermoregulation

In colder climates, our fabrics warm up quicker, and then store the thermal energy 63% longer than an equivalent weight fabric would. In hotter climates however, they dry 65% quicker on average, dissipating excess heat through evaporation. Tying these two effects together is the increase in local circulation which allows your body to more efficiently transport heat around KYnergy®exposed areas, resulting in a regulating effect rather than just heating or cooling.

Pain Relief

There are a variety of pain relief responses that an athlete will experience when using our products. The first is an activation of the same chemical pathways that an opiate would activate (albeit less potently), when Nitric Oxide activates another chemical called Cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate (or cGMP for short). This process inhibits pain receptors and reduces pain while you are wearing KYMIRA®products. Once removed however, this pain inhibition will wear off as your body stops producing Nitric Oxide at such an accelerated rate. There are however, longer pain relief effects that are seen in athletes of all abilities when it comes to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Once our products are removed, DOMS does not return. Based on anecdotal evidence, which we are currently clinically testing, this is believed to be because exercising in KYMIRA®Sport products reduces the physiological causes of the DOMS itself*.

SPF Rating

Our technology contains the mineral Quarts Dioxide. This is not included for infrared purposes, but rather its ability to absorb shorter wavelengths of UV light which is harmful to us. Once absorbed, it converts UV into a longer wavelength which is then more harmful to microbes. This dual effect gives our products a minimum rating of SPF 35 and an antimicrobial effect.
