What is a Negative Ion

To answer this, we must first understand what are atoms.

Atoms are the basic building blocks of every “thing” – from human beings to rocks.

Atoms can lose or gain electrons. They can also bond with other atoms to create molecules. For example, Water, H20, is a molecule made up of two hydrogen atoms – that’s the H2 part – and one oxygen atom, the O part of H2O.

Ions are nothing more than atoms that have an electrical charge, either positive or negative. Atoms are always losing and picking up electrons – the smaller bits that whirl around the core of an atom, called the nucleus.

When ions gain an electron and they become a negative ion or anion.

When ions lose an electron, they become a positive ion or cation (oxidation).

4 WELLNESS BENEFITS OF NEGATIVE IONS

1

Purifies blood & improves blood circulation

Increases oxygen capacity of red blood cells

The red blood cells disperse after exposure to negative ions, allowing better oxygen absorption and blood flow in the body.

After exposure to negative ions through our TEVIRON fabric, even pH levels are regulated to an optimum healthy pH level of 7.35 to 7.45.

Keep cells healthy & increase cell activity

(cell metabolism)

Optimises our body oxygen intake and waste elimination in our cells

Did you know?

When we facilitate waste removal and nutrient absorption, cells become vitalized and healthy!

2

Boost overall immune system
which protects your body

Especially the body's NK Cell.

In a published paper, Immunological Effect of Long-term Exposure of Negative Air Ions on Human, it was shown that the percentage of NK cells with the exposure of the ions was lower than without ions.

Negative ion atmospheric loading has been reported to affect a range of psychological functions, from alertness to circadian rhythms, and has been suggested to benefit a variety of medical conditions, from allergies to migraine. – Indian Journal of Psychiatry, 1992 (Source: Charles Yeh C.S, Wear Anions)

Natural killer cells (NK cells) are a type of white blood cell and a component of innate immune system.

NK cells play a major role in the host-rejection of both tumours and virally infected cells.

Balances the system and improves areas
such as sleep and hormones

The autonomic nervous system, or ANS, is responsible for the involuntary functions of the human body ie the heart, your digestive system and basic functions such as breathing through the lungs. Because it is so automatic, we are seldom conscious of it, but it heavily affects our overall well being.

Did you know?

Negative ions can increase the alpha brain waves to inhibit sympathetic nerve activities and excite the parasympathetic nerve. – www.negativeionshealth.com
