Ever wonder why we get such happy feelings when we go to the waterfalls, the beach, the mountains, and all places where everything is in its natural glory? While it certainly is nice to bask in the beauty of nature, there is something in the air that makes us feel so happy… and this time, it’s not love. It’s negative ions or anions.
And if you have felt the euphoria when in such wondrous places, then you have already felt the power of negative ions or anions working in you.
If you don’t know what anions are, click here to have a quick Science 101 crash course of ions explained in layman’s terms.
As 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. says, “Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy. They also may protect against germs in the air…”
Moreover, Dr. Jacob, Professor of Physiology with the Public Sanitation Institute of Harvard University, see negative ions as “Vitamins of the Air”.
For decades now, doctors and scientists have studied, tested, and proven the benefits anions bring. Once these negative ions reach our bloodstream, they are said to produce biochemical reactions that bring a multitude of benefits such as:
- Lowers our stress levels
- Boosts our energy levels
- Acts as a natural anti-depressant
- Strengthens our immune system
- Helps us sleep better
- Reinforces collagen production
- Improves our blood circulation
- Increases mental energy
And specifically for anions in sanitary napkins, negative ions help:
- Balance PH and hormone levels
- Protect against germs in the air
- Reduce inflammation
- Fights against vaginal irritations and infections
- Eliminate unwanted odor
