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).
Natural negative ions can be found in abundance around waterfalls,
mountains, rushing streams, seasides, forests, after rain and thunderstorms
4 WELLNESS BENEFITS OF NEGATIVE IONS
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.
Red blood cells when exposed to negative ions
Keep cells healthy & increase cell activity
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!
Boost overall immune system
which protects your body
Especially the body's NK Cell.

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.

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