The effect of negative ions on the human body is extremely positive.
People in an environment that is rich in negative ions experience increased work productivity
Remember that feeling you experienced near a waterfall, high in the mountains or after a lightning storm? That intense feeling of refreshment and alertness is the result of you breathing in massive quantities of naturally occurring negative ions.
Ions are charged particles in the air that are formed when enough energy acts upon a molecule, such as carbon dioxide, oxygen, water, or nitrogen, to eject an electron. The displaced electron attaches itself to a nearby molecule, which then becomes a negative ion. It is the negative ion of oxygen that affects us most. Though the ion is termed a negative or negatively-charged ion, its effects on the human body are extremely positive.
The normal ion count in fresh country air is 2 000 to 4 000 negative ions per cubic centimetre (about the size of a sugar cube). At Victoria Falls, you will experience over 100 000 negative ions per cubic centimetre while a Johannesburg freeway during rush hour only has levels below 100 per cubic centimetre.
It has been proven through exhaustive research that negative ions break down serotonin, a very active neuro hormone, which causes profound neural, glandular and digestive effects throughout the body. The metabolism is enhanced to create better utilisation of nutrients from our foods and vitamins, while our brain's intuitive, non-linear activities flow more smoothly.
People in an environment that is rich in negative ions experience increased work productivity, better concentration abilities, increased lung capacity, enhanced immune systems, improvements in sinus and related problems such as migraines, headaches, allergies and hay fever.
Doctors have recommended ion-rich environments as part of the treatment of numerous diseases such as neuralgia, hypertension, rheumatism, asthma, kidney and liver conditions and hormonal imbalances.
The effects of ionisation of the air have become so widely accepted that in many European and Russian hospitals and workplaces it has become mandatory to ionise the air.
Researchers from the former Soviet Union have noted that more than 5 000 scientific documents support the concept that high doses of negative ions have positive effects, while the opposite is true with exposure to high doses of positive ions.
The Soviets published numerous reports indicating that even brief periods of negative ion exposure - about 15 minutes a day for 25 days - resulted in improved responses to training in runners, boxers, swimmers and other athletes. These responses included greater rates of gain in both strength and endurance, as well as in improved psychological characteristics, sleep habits and appetite.
IF YOU SPEND A FEW MOMENTS BREATHING DEEPLY NEAR A SALT LAMP,
YOU WILL FEEL THE DIFFERENCE
