WHAT IS A NEGATIVE ION?
To know what is a negative ion, we need to 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, H2O is a molecule made up of two atoms. (The H2 and O)
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.
The ORANGE DOT represent the NUCLEUS
The BITS whirling around represent ELECTRONS
When ions gain an electron, they become a negative-ion or anion
When ions lose an electron, they become positive-ion or cation (oxidation)
SO, HOW MUCH NEGATIVE IONS DO YOU NEED?
We need 100,000 - 500,000 negative ions of air for optimal health and to enhance our own body's natural healing abilities to aid recovery from chronic illnesses
Natural negative ions can be found in abundance around waterfalls, mountains, rushing streams, seaside, forest, after rain and thunderstorms.
4 HEALTH BENEFITS OF NEGATIVE IONS
1. PURIFIES BLOOD AND 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
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

CALCIUM ION LEVELS OF THE BODY
2. KEEP CELLS HEALTHY AND INCREASE CELL ACTIVITY
Optimizes our body oxygen intake and waste elimination in our healthy cells
WHEN WE FACILITATE WASTE REMOVAL AND NUTRIENT ABSORPTION, CELLS BECOME VITALIZED AND HEALTHY
3. BOOST OVERALL IMMUNE SYSTEM WHICH PROTECTS YOUR BODY
(Especially the body's Natural Killer 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 benfit a variety of medical conditions, from allergies to migraine - Indian Journal of Psychiatry, 1992
4. 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, i,e. 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.
