Benefits of Negative Ions: The Finest in Health Technology

benefits of negative ionsThe health benefits of negative ions is still a subject that is being uncovered by scientists, but the facts are very clear: spend time in nature and feel better. If the doctor could prescribe something better than a pill, I bet it would be a prescription for nature because don’t you feel a whole lot better when you are surrounded by trees, sitting by the ocean, or walking barefoot in the sand?

Much of the health benefits of negative ions are commonly unknown, but the truth is known, and that is for sure: negative ions are a very good thing. Read further to learn all about “what are negative ions?”, the benefits of negative ions, and some of the newest technology in which a person can enjoy the benefits of negative ions in their homes, at work, and on their bodies.

What Are Negative Ions?

what are negative ionsIf you are looking for the number of electrons and protons in the negative ion, then you are looking in the wrong place. Although that information is important to the overall makeup of a negative ion, the more interesting thing about the benefits of negative ions is that anyone can experience them. When people think “negative ion”, they tend to think that this kind of an ion is a bad thing because it’s called “negative.” Although, the truth is not that way at all. A negative ion is simply an ion that has a negative charge to it, allowing it to behave differently than an ion with a positive charge.

Negative ions are produced in nature, and one example of this is when water is falling from a waterfall and the water hits the rocks at the bottom of the waterfall, thus creating negative ions. The energy that bounces off the rocks is what we feel, and it’s what we want to stay near as long as possible. Another example of how negative ions are created is when waves crash against the rocks down at the ocean’s beachfront. Some kinds of stones produce negative ions, such as Tourmaline. Tourmaline is used in the negative ion sport bracelets and sport necklaces mentioned further into this article.

What Are the Health Benefits of Negative Ions?

As you can tell, when you are sitting on the rocks at the ocean, or when you are standing near a roaring waterfall, the energy in those places feels GOOD. Sometimes, it’s as though you feel “at home” when you are by a waterfall, and like you never want to leave. The trickling down of water can be an almost spiritual sensation for many people, and partly to do with the fact that the benefits of negative ions just feel good.

In polluted areas, such as in city streets, people report feeling less energetic, more drained, more lethargic, and less interested in sitting down and enjoying the scenery. This is less true in nature. Wouldn’t you agree? Some studies show that, in the presence of negative ions, blood cells separate from one another, thus resulting in less of a potential for blood clotting. There is also information supporting negative ions increasing alkalinity in the body. If a person is choosing an alkaline diet, for example, they will choose to drink alkaline water- water that has been charged by magnets or has gone through an alkalizing negative ion process.

When we get down to the nitty gritty, it’s all about how we feel, right? If we feel better when we are around negative ions, then it means something. People feel better in negative ion-rich environments, thus their health reflects that feeling.

Benefits of Negative Ions in Technology

Negative Ion ULPA Air Filter

benefits of negative ionsIf a person is thinking about investing in an ion generator, then they should not bother getting one that simply generates negative ions. The best way to go, when a person is planning to buy negative ion technology that will generate ions in their home or workplace is to choose an ULPA air filter, such as this one by Nikken, so that their piece of technology not only generates negative ions, but so that it also filters the air to the hgihest degree possible. ULPA is a higher standard of filtration than HEPA. ULPA filters the air so that the smallest particles in the air become trapped in the filter, thus extremely reducing allergens in the air, and giving a person a whole new breath on life.

Negative Ion Generators

If you plan to buy a negative ion generator, I wouldn’t bother buying a unit that only produces negative ions. As mentioned above, it is better worth your money to buy a unit that also filters the air to a premium level. All indoor air should be filtered anyhow, so buying a negative ion generator on its own is not very beneficial to a healthier lifestyle. Adding negative ions is good, but ULPA filtration plus negative ion generation is way better than just good.

Negative Ion Necklace and Bracelet

Negative ion necklaces and negative ion bracelets gained a lot of hype for a period of time, and even though the hype was good, there were some unfit companies who gave the bracelets and necklaces a bad name. Some companies made products that were unworthy for the marketplace, and of course those companies and products should be avoided. The benefits of negative ions can be enjoyed, if you choose the right company to align yourself with.benefits of negative ions

I can only speak for myself and all the people I have helped when I say that the Nikken Powerband bracelets and necklaces are the real deal when it comes to negative ion producing necklaces and bracelets. See my Nikken Testimonials page to see why I mean it when I say that this brand is the way to go when you are looking for the benefits of negative ions worn on the body.

How to Get More Negative Ions Into Your Day for Benefits of Negative Ions

Not everyone provides themselves with the benefit of getting outside for a walk in nature,where negative ions are abundant, and that is entirely understandable. Our lives are designed in such a way that many people travel to work in a vehicle of some kind, on smoggy roadways, and with little time during the day to be anywhere near nature. For those people who spend a lot of time commuting, I recommend they use an ion-generating travel air filter for their car, and make it a priority to spend as much time in nature as possible, over the weekends and during non-working hours.

Indoor plants are a source of a small amount of negative ions. If you can’t get to nature on a daily basis, then bring nature to you by filling your space with plants that give nourishing life energy and oxygen to a room. Read my post, here, about the best plants for a cleaner indoor environment.

Wishing you all the benefits of negative ions!
