Negative Ions

Here you will find information about negative ions and thier beneficial influence on our lives

Is ‘positive’ always ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ always ‘negative’?

Proper understanding of terms of ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ ion’s is very important to our wellbeing.

Sometimes, as in case of negative ions; ‘negative’ bears positive meaning for our wellbeing. Please, follow us here in order to appreciate how negative ions are beneficial to our health and wellbeing.

Nature generates negative ions.

Why do we feel so good walking in the woods, on a beach or near a river, breathing fresh air in the mountains, or just breathing fresh air after rain or storm? Simple…We feel like that due to benign properties of negative ions that are so abundant in these environments.

  • Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.

  • Negative ions help recovery from physical exhaustion and fatigue – achieved by increasing oxygen levels in the blood.

  • Negative ions stabilize brain function – effect - relaxation and calmness.

  • Negative ions aid in blood purification by increasing the levels of calcium and sodium (healthy salt intake) in the blood stream, negative ions help restore a healthy (slightly alkaline) pH balance to the blood.

  • Negative ions increase metabolism by stimulating exchange of electronic substances in cells.

  • Negative ions strengthen immune system - high levels of negative ions promote production of globulin (proteins that are found extensively in blood plasma) in the blood, resulting in stronger resistance to illness.

  • Negative ions balance autonomic nervous system by balancing the opposing sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system.

  • Negative ions promote better digestion - by counteracting over-arousal of the sympathetic nervous system, negative ions help ease tension in the stomach and intestines, promoting the production of digestive enzymes and enhancing digestion.

  • Negative ions promote cell rejuvenation by revitalizing cell metabolism, negative ions enhance vitality of muscle tissue and strengthening internal organs.

Approaching it scientifically:

When an atom (or molecule; more than one atom together) contains one more electron than protons it will have an overall negative charge.

negative ions

Negative ions are atoms or molecules with one or more electrons.

positive ions

Positive ions are atoms or molecules with one or more protons.

Negative ions can be found in the most natural areas, such as: waterfalls, beaches, fresh country and pine forests.

Research from leading institutions, along with thousands of worldwide studies, concur that negative ions are beneficial for us and positive ions are not!

Dr. Svante August Arrhenius, a Swedish chemist who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1903, discovered that waterfalls and forests are full of negative ions. That is why the air is so fresh.

Dr. Phillip Eduard Anton Lennard, at the turn of the 20th century, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics, confirmed that negative ions are found in very high density in the basin of waterfalls where we feel especially refreshed and re-energized.

Dr. Jacob, Professor of Physiology with the Public Sanitation Institute of Harvard University acclaims negative ions as "Vitamins of the Air".
