Anions, or negative ions, are colorless, odorless and tasteless molecules that occur naturally in the environment. We know they are there because they have positive effects on our mood. Think about the last time you visited near mountains, waterfalls or beaches. These natural areas give us a happy and relaxing feeling when we are near them all thanks to an over abundance of anions. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase our body’s metabolic functions as well as increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin.
What is an Anion (AN-Eye-On)?
Respiratory System – Improves lung function by as much as 20% more oxygen on inhalation and 14.5% more carbon dioxide exhalation.
Cardiovascular system – Significantly reduces blood pressure, improves cardiac muscle function and nutrition, and facilitates the dilation of capillary vessels and the rise of skin temperature.
Autonomic nervous system – Energizes the body, increases the state of well-being, improves vitality, improves sleep quality, eases pain and tension and increases mental function.
Metabolism – Activates many enzymes in the body, reduces blood sugar levels, cholesterol, increases blood calcium, increases the amount of nitrogen and creatinine in urine, accelerates bone growth, and prevents scurvy, rachitis and vitamin insufficiency.
Blood – Increases the number of white and red blood cells, hemoglobin, reticulocyte, blood platelet, globin, increases the top five factors of blood (oxygen, nitrogen, calcium, sodium and potassium), raises alkali levels and shortens blood forming time.
Immune System – Improves reflex system and endothelial system while enhancing the body’s anti-disease ability. Improves the body’s antibody defenses by increasing the amount of gamma globulin in the blood system.
Pain relief – Increases ionized calcium, generates endorphins and enkephalins and thus helps recovery from fatigue and increase physical strength as well as helps the cells with severe pain healthy again, circulate blood better and relieve pain.
Other benefits – Purifies the air we breath. Removes smoke, smog, dust particles, mites, mold spores and many allergens as small as 0.02 microns from the air.
Benefits of Anions to the human body
Virtually all particles in the air have a positive charge, while the anions have a negative charge. As the Anions are released into the air they are magnetically attracted to the positive particles. Once enough Anions attach to the floating particles it will cause them to become to heavy to remain airborne causing them to fall to the ground.
Why Anion bulbs?
There are literally hundreds of negative ion generator products to choose from, so why choose Brighter World Lighting’s Anion Series bulbs? The answer is simple: Cost effectiveness. Many of the air ionizers on the market for room purification are very large and very expensive. They can only cover the room they are used in. Negative ions only have a natural life of about 30 seconds before they loose their charge which makes treating a large area with a single unit almost impossible. To treat multiple rooms you would have to have multiple units. With our Anion Series bulbs, you can have smaller, more affordable negative ion generators spread evenly throughout your building or residence. This means you have optimal Anion dispersal at a fraction of the cost!
