1. Negative ions clean the air.
The air in our homes contains many airborne particles or VOCs that make it hard to breathe. Negative ions attach to these particles to create a negative charge. The negative charge causes the particles to attract positively charged surfaces such as the floor or TV screens, removing them from the air.
2. Cleaner air reduces respiratory problems.
When the air is cleaner, it is easier to breathe. Particles in the air such as paint fumes, perfume, and smoke create difficulties for our respiratory passages, making it harder to breathe. Fewer particles in the air mean less coughing, fewer allergy symptoms, and better health.
3. Negative ions make our bodies more energetic.
Our bodies have biochemical reactions to negative ions that are revitalizing and energizing. There is a reason why we feel the way we do right after a good rainfall or being near a river.
4. The increase in energy makes us more productive.
When we stay indoors or spend ample time in front of a screen, we tend to feel groggier. That is because computer screens give off positive charges and deplete negative ions in the surrounding area. Also, indoor atmospheres tend to have low levels of negative ions in general.
5. Negative ions increase mental concentration and performance.
Studies have shown those who are exposed to higher levels of negative ions perform better on tests than those who aren’t. That is because negative ions promote oxygen flow to the brain.
