What are Negative Ions? How do they benefit you?
Negative ions are good for you! So don't let the word "negative" fool you. They are oxygen atoms with an extra electron, also known to the ancient Chinese as "Chi". Imagine the feeling you experience near a waterfall or high in the mountains - these are two places where thousands of Negative Ions occur and they make you feel better!
Negative ions refresh your body and enhance your overall well-being. Various studies have shown that negative ions help:
• Limits the production of Serotonin which can cause Fatigue
• SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder
• Abates Asthma symptoms
• Open bloods valve for increased blood circulation
We all need Negative Ions
Negatively Charged Electric Ions in our body are essential in sustaining and improving our health. Whereas 85% of the Negative Electric Ions are absorbed from our skin, only 15% are inhaled and absorbed through our lungs. Additionally, metabolism, which is the process of acquiring nutrients from the blood and excreting waste out of the body, is extremely important to the human cells. The more Negatively Charged Electric Ions there are in the blood, the more efficient the cell's metabolism process. In other words, Negative Ions are very important to our quality of life.
About the Energy Balance technology
ENERGY BALANCE™ wristbands contain high quality bonded negative ion releasing minerals. When combined these minerals release the highest negative ion output available.
Research has shown that human beings respond to negative ion levels above 1000 ions per cc.
Typical Negative Ion Readings:
• Near a waterfall: 50,000 ions per cc
• In the mountains: 5,000 ions per cc
• ENERGY BALANCETM BANDS: 1676 ions per cc
• In the country: 1,500 ions per cc
• In an average modern office: Only 50 ions per cc
"Open your mind, set your biases and preconceived notions aside. We do not have all the answers and there is clearly more that we do not know and need to learn. Where the science supports these integrative concepts of energy medicine, let us use them. Where there is not enough science, let the studies begin."

17th Surgeon General of the UNITED STATES
