Benefits of Anions
Anions are negatively charged ions, and cations are positively charged ions. A positive ion is a molecule that has lost one or more electrons due to a high-energy impact, and is harmful to the human body.
Our earth surface repels negative ions and attracts positive ions. As such, the earth surface has a higher concentration of positive ions compared to negative ions under normal conditions.
When the concentration of positive ions exceed the negative ions at a certain level, our health can be affected. Positive ions can constrict blood vessels, increase blood acidity, weaken bones and increase stress levels. On the contrary, anions have many functions which can benefit all of us.
Anions, being the negative ions, help to neutralize the charges of the positive ions generated by the daily usage of common technologically advanced equipment and apparatus such as computers, printers, televisions, microwave ovens, hairdryers and fluorescent lights, right within our modern homes and offices.
Anions also attract floating particles such as dust, smoke, pollen, spores, dander and bacteria, binding them together to become large dirt particles which are too heavy to remain airborne. The nature of gravity works to pull them down to the ground so they can be cleared away or vacuumed. Hence, the amount of pollutants that can cause allergic reactions in our respiratory system is reduced, making the air cleaner and safer for us to breathe in.
Waterfalls are the known best environment for the human health where negative ions concentration level is the highest. JoyRiver's Air~Genius produces 5,000,000 pieces of anions every 30 minutes.
Anions are also called the vitamins in the air. They enable us to inhale more oxygen and exhale more carbon dioxide, thus rejuvenating and revitalizing our body’s systems and cells. They are known to help reduce stress, strengthen immunity, enhance metabolism and improve sleep quality.
JoyRiver’s Air~Genius and Air~Nano air purifiers are both equipped with anion generators which release 5 million and 3 million anions respectively.
