It is well known that consuming more alkaline foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables, is beneficial to us human health. An acidic pH balance of the body, on the other hand make the body weak and susceptible to sickness. Acidification of the blood, which caused by the loss of electrons, can be prevented by negative ions, which contains an abundant amount of electrons, improving the body’s immunity and resistance to sickness. This is the reason negative ion products are becoming more and more popular nowadays.
Metabolism, which is the process of acquiring nutrients from the blood and excreting waste out of the body, is extremely important to the human cells. The more negative ions there are in the blood, the more efficient the cell’s metabolism process.
On the contrary, the more positive ions there are in the blood, the slower and less efficient the cell’s metabolism. This causes the body’s cells to become weak and the body will tend to get sick more easily and age faster.
An experiment was conducted on electric ions and the permeability of the cell membrane. In the experiment, skin was used to exemplify the cell membrane. When positive ions were permeated into the surface of the skin, its pores and sweat glands began to contract. However, when negative ions were permeated into the surface of the skin, its pores and sweat glands expanded, which demonstrates good metabolism of the cell membranes. This phenomenon is called Prototype Plasma Membranes of Dermal Reflectivity. Professor Arudoman of the
He proposed the following hypothesis negative ions are beneficial to the human body in four major ways:
- It helps to strengthen the functions of autonomic nerves,
- Reinforce collagen (tissues that are resilient and tension-related)
- Improve the permeability of cell’s prototype plasma membranes (improves metabolism)
- Strengthen the body’s immune system.
The human body is surrounded by ions; therefore, the function of electrons inside and outside the cells has significant influence on the human body. It makes the body strong if good ions are taken. When the amount of negative ions contained in one c.c. of air inhaled reached 5,000 to 50,000, it strengthens the body’s resistance and immunity; and when the amount of negative ions contained in one c.c. of air reached 100,000 to 500,000, it relieves illnesses. Negative ions in our body are essential in sustaining and improving our health. Whereas 85% of the negative ions are absorbed from our Skin, only 15% is inhaled and absorbed through our lungs.
