I’ve been hearing a lot recently about how excited people are getting over power bands. I thought they looked like a fad and probably did absolutely nothing at all, so to satisfy my curiosity and to back up my suspicions, I did some research and a lot of reading to see if I could find anything meaningful to help decide either way. There is a ton of information out there, and a lot of it is just marketing nonsense so I have tried to cut through all that for you to bring out the more useful facts.
The first thing I found out is that the whole point of these power bands is that they give out ‘negative ions’. These negative ions are supposedly linked to improving your mood, reducing depression an danger, reduce your stress levels and improve your breathing and therefore your blood circulation. Obviously all of these effects are associated with a lot of useless health products claiming to actively improve your health and lifestyle while actually being nothing more than a placebo.
So as you can easily imagine, I thought that all the product hype just sounded a like a lot of marketing trash and buzzwords. However, I found that there have been genuine scientific trials into their effects, which do lend real credibility to the positive effect of negative ions, and therefore power bands on your mood and stress levels.
I was further reassured when I discovered that negative ions actually are completely natural and are most commonly found in places with bright sunlight, running water like rivers or streams and around plants and other foliage. The power bands are designed to incorporate the elements from these natural sources into a bracelet.
So, in short, I’m converted – the scientific proof was enough for me. You should have a look yourself, there are several studies on the subject when you start digging.
In day to day life, the best way to immerse yourself in negative ions is simply to go for a walk in the countryside or your local park. If you can’t do that, then absolutely get one of the wrist power bands, and make sure to get the most efficient one you can find.
I’ve ordered one myself from http://uk.infinitypro.com, so will let you know if it lives up to expectations.
