What are the Benefits of Negative Ions?
Negative Ions according to WebMD:
Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C.
“They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.”
In nature, there is an abundance of negative ions generated after a storm, in the mountains, at a waterfall or at the beach. So, having salt lamps in your home can also help generate those feelings you might feel in those locations of wellbeing on a regular basis.
Also from WebMD:
"Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy."
Your TV, computer, microwave and various electrical appliances will produce positive ions. Since many of us use these items regularly in our home it is important to increase the use of Himalayan Salt lamps or other purifiers in order to have the continued benefit of negative ions throughout the home. We really don’t know what an abundance of positive ions and lack of negative ions have on the body as far as disease states. However, it is easy to speculate their effect.
