Negative Ions are Positive. Air near waterfalls, mountains, beaches and forests are among those places where ionization levels are the highest and in complete and natural balance.
For example you may have experienced the power of negative ions when you last set foot on the beach or walked beneath a waterfall or immediately after spring thunderstorms.
Ions are molecules that have gained or lost an electrical charge. Negative ions are created in nature as air molecules break apart due to sunlight, radiation, and moving air and water. They are odorless, tasteless, and invisible and we inhale them in abundance in certain environments
Our modern homes and offices seal out negative ions forcing us to live in unhealthy environments. Computer terminals, fluorescent lighting, forced air ventilation systems, and modern building materials generate an over abundance of positive ions. Positive ions make us feel tired, depressed and irritable. Balancing the ionization in your home and workplace may help you live a healthier life.
