Negative ions or Anions are found in natural environments such as lakes, rivers, and forests. Negative ions clean and purify the air as they absorb micro particles to remove dust and bacteria - Harvard scientists believe negative ions are the vitamins of the air.
Negative ions are odourless, tasteless and invisible molecules that we inhale in large quantity in certain environments such as mountains, waterfalls and beaches.
Application for personal use
Winalite developed a special Anion strip, which contains 5800 negative ions/cm3.
To put this into perspective, if you spent some time in a rainforest, you would absorb around 2500 negative ions/cm3.
Why are they good for us?
Once they reach our bloodstream, Anions produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress and boost our daytime energy. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness and more
Healing Properties of Negative Ions
Recovery from physical exhaustion or fatigue
By increasing oxygen levels in the blood and facilitating more efficient oxygen utilization, negative ions help accelerate recovery from fatigue.
Stabilizing brain faction
By promoting abundant oxygen levels in the blood, negative ions help normalize brain function, resulting in relaxation and calmness.
By increasing the levels of calcium and sodium in the blood stream, negative ions help restore a healthy (slightly alkaline) PH balance to the blood.
By stimulating electrical activity between cells, negative ions help to speed up metabolism.
Strengthening the immune system
High levels of negative ions stimulate the production of globulin in the blood, resulting in greater resistance to illness.
Balancing the autonomic nervous system
negative ions can calm and relax taut nerves by balancing the opposing sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system.
Promoting better digestion
By counteracting over-arousal of the sympathetic nervous system, negative ions help ease tension in the stomach and intestines, stimulating the production of digestive enzymes and enhancing digestion.
Negative ions help revitalize cell metabolism, enhancing the vitality of muscle tissue and strengthening internal organs.
Hormonal balance and overall health
Negative ions can rejuvenate and revitalize all the body’s systems and cells, promoting a stronger overall constitution.
