Now, foot fungus patients, obsessive-compulsive cleanliness people and Virgo's gospel is finally here: there is a plant, its fibers not only have the advantages of cotton fabric soft and comfortable, but also natural anti-bacterial, anti-UV radiation, moisture absorption and quick drying these "ability" to make the cotton is unmatched, this magical baby is the legendary hemp.
A mention of marijuana, it is estimated that many people should "talk about hemp" panic: "wear marijuana clothes, will not be poisoned?" In fact, leaving aside the toxic components of marijuana addiction, excluding the toxic marijuana is full of treasures. There is a common international standard, the plant in the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content of less than 0.3% of the cannabis species is called industrial hemp, has completely lost the value of drug use. But for textile and clothing, hemp fiber is a priceless treasure. We have been growing hemp for over 5,000 years. This rich "old oil" has another name, called the "second skin of the human body", and some people will be hailed on the altar as the "king of natural fibers". You may not know, even the American flag is sewn with industrial hemp.
Hemp fiber antibacterial mystery, is that it comes with a good gene in its bones. As a fighter against bacterial invasion, hemp fiber has what powerful "guy"? With the human body at the expense of their own immune system is different, hemp fibers often only need to defend the form of antibacterial and antibacterial purposes. Hemp fiber hollow structure is distributed in the dense gaps and small cavities, ready to adsorb a large amount of oxygen, so that anaerobic bacteria do not fight and die; airtight, damp and dark environment is often in line with the taste of bacteria, but also the breeding ground for bacteria.
Hemp fiber polygonal intermediate structure and the outer surface of the dense longitudinal cracks is its resistance to moisture "shield", hemp fiber not only by its breathable absorption of moisture, but also quickly help the body to sweat out. Some people have taken the hemp fiber and cotton fiber for comparison, whether it is the rate of moisture absorption or rate of moisture release, hemp fiber are a big score over cotton fiber.
In addition to defense, hemp fiber also has an inherent "killer" - fiber contains substances that can destroy the life activities of mold-like microorganisms "phenolic substances," the mold to "Shot", hinder the metabolic effect of mold and physiological activities, damage to the structure of the body, which ultimately led to the growth and reproduction of microorganisms are inhibited, and successfully "round up" mold.
Then the hemp fiber in the end good at what fungal bacteria to fear? Can put each other tens of thousands of invading army? This, of course, also rely on data to speak: researchers found that hemp fiber is the number one natural enemy of Staphylococcus aureus, such species once encountered hemp fiber will be folded more than 99%, almost a total loss.
Candida albicans and E. coli inhibition rate also reached 99% and 96%. Some studies have shown that if the cotton is added to the hemp fiber to form a blended yarn, the higher the proportion of hemp fiber added, the better the bactericidal effect. Take Staphylococcus aureus, for example, the proportion of cotton and hemp to 55 to 45, it can inhibit up to 99% of Staphylococcus aureus. What if the proportion of cotton is reduced to zero? Simply put, it is pure hemp yarn. The results show a surprisingly high inhibition rate of well over 99%. 99%! That number is good propaganda on its own. For those who must often come into contact with a variety of pathogens, wearing hemp fibers made from or mixed with hemp fiber fabric, to a certain extent, is also a good disease prevention strategy for our immune system to intercept some unwanted "invaders," as in the hospital ward, medical staff wear masks to defend against the rampant viruses and bacteria.
Perhaps in the near future, medical staff will also wear white coats and masks made of hemp fiber, which would be a particularly cool thing. Although the germs in our lives may not seem as "hideous" as those in hospitals, we are still surrounded by countless "bad guys".
Can't believe there are so many germs around? Someone pressed a handprint on a petri dish, put it in the incubator, and this handprint grew a myriad of odd-shaped colonies. Yes, these are the bacteria that are attached to us and around us. This may include Staphylococcus aureus, which causes folliculitis and impetigo, streptococcus, which infects dermatitis and cellulitis, and ringworm, ringworm red, and microsporum canis, which gives you ringworm and ringworm.
So, in order to prevent some fungal bacteria-induced diseases and make hemp better for humans (not as a drug, of course), many new hemp clothing fabrics have also been developed in the market in recent years. For example, hemp fiber made of hemp shoes and socks, for those who are always tormented by foot odor sufferers, it is "a long drought and rain" - finally saved!
Foot odor is a persistent and stubborn "disease", as long as the sweat or encounter with inappropriate footwear, it is like a spring, like a resurgence of uncontrollable. In our opinion, the reason why foot odor is difficult to deal with may be that we have never encountered a material as magical as hemp fiber. After all, the socks we saw on the market in the past, boasting a "chemical antibacterial" selling point, are not worth mentioning after comparing the antibacterial ability with the hemp socks study.
