The Benefits Of Negative Ions
What are negative ions? According to the Underground Health Reporter “(negative ions) are electrically charged particles that attach themselves to damaging free radicals and thereby protect you from their negative effects” Where do you find these negative ions? Anywhere you find moving water. So beaches, waterfalls, rushing rivers etc. But you don’t have to jump on a plane and go south to find them. Each time it rains the air is charged with negative ions, especially after a thunderstorm. These incredible negatively charged ions can do a number of things in the body:
- Help increase your mood
- Repair damaged cells due to free radicals
- Help to fight depression
So next time you see rain coming, no need to hide inside, instead, get on those rain boots, grab an umbrella and do some wonderful deep breathing. You never know, you may be transported back to 1920 and start ‘Singing in the Rain’.
