Ionic Air Purifiers & Your Health
Room Purifiers Due to their larger and more effective filters or collecting plates, larger portable
room filtration systems are considerably more effective in cleaning within a room than the
table top units (Consumer Reports, 1992; Fox, 1994) and have become increasingly popular
in the past several years.
Have you ever stood by a huge waterfall or spent a day by
the ocean as the surf pounds in and out ? Remember how invigorating and fresh the air was?
That is because that air was rich with negative ions. If you have ever take a deep breath
of the "clean" air right after a thunderstorm you know what we are talking
about. Those forces of nature enrich the air with billions of negative ions. This is
the power of ionic air purifiers.
The positive effects on human health and mental clarity of
increased negative ions in the air has been scientifically documented for the last fifty
years or so.
Negative Ions force particles as small as .01 micron from
the air. They can also neutralize airborne viruses and microorganisms as well.
Researchers believe negative ions increase oxygen uptake
capabilities on a cellular level. More oxygen to your cells means better overall health.
The Nobel prize winner a few years ago discovered that lack of oxygen is the main cause of
Research shows negative ions helps regulate brain
serotonin.( Serotonin is a phenolic amine neurotransmitter C10H12N2O
that is a powerful vasoconstrictor and is found especially in the brain, blood serum, and
gastric mucosa of mammals) The brain's serotonin neurotransmitter system has been
associated with a variety of psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety,
anti-social personality disorder: even alcohol and drug dependency! Negative ion therapy
has also been used successfully to combat SAD (seasonal affective disorder).
The US military installs negative ion generators in fighter
jet cockpits and in submarines to keep the crews awake and alert. This is especially
useful on long missions.
In recent years, this technology has been made affordable
for home and office use. We are proud to carry a variety of ionizers to help make your
life more comfortable. Just click on these links to view these products:
