Negative ions clear the air of allergens, pollens, mold, animal dander, hazardous airborne particles such as bacteria and viruses. They reduce colds, flu and asthmatic attacks thus helping people with upper respiratory conditions breathe more efficiently, resulting in better sleep and up regulations in levels of seratonin for an overall feeling of wellness. Individuals suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and depression or anxiety have shown less symptoms following the introduction of negative ions. Individuals suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, gout, tinnitus, back pain and high blood pressure can also benefit from negative ion introduction.
