anion (negative ion)
what's negative ion?
an ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving it a net positive or negative electrical charge.
"ions" are charged particles. they are floating in the air around us all of the time and have either negative or positive charges. ions that are negatively charged are called "negative ions" or "anions". ions that are positively charged are called "positive ions" or "cations". for example, oxygen occupies larger proportion in the air, resulting in formation of oxygen anions as the free electrons are captured by oxygen molecules.
ions can be generated when a large amount of energy is applied to an atom or a molecule. negative ions are created in nature with air molecules broken apart by uv radiation from sunlight, cosmic radiation, radioactive substances, thunderstorm, waterfalls and sea waves.
negative ion has been recognized as "the vitamin of the air ", confirming its health effect on human, ionic research from leading institutions, along with worldwide clinical studies have proven its therapeutic effect. the concentration of negative ions in our living environment has been along observed to be correlated closely to the hunman health. negative ion also have been used as an important indicator for air and environment quality.
how is negative ion produced?
negative ions have been proven to have a positive impact on health, mood, and energy, affecting serotonin levels in the brain. negative ions also bond with impurities in the air, adhering to suspended particles and removing them.
how are they produced?
negative ions may be produced in several ways. the ions we are concerned with, oxygen ions, are most commonly produced through disturbance of water molecules, such as in fast flowing rivers or indoor waterfalls. the disturbance of water molecules occasionally displaces an electron, causing it to break off from its host. this spare electron then seeks out another oxygen molecule as a host, giving this molecule an extra electron, and therefore a negative charge.
3. benefit of negative ion
correlation betwwen concentrations of negative ions in different environment and human health
the number of anions in the air can impact on human health. if the air has too high a content of positive ions and too few anions, then the human body may develop symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, migraine, depression and shortness of breath, but these could be rapidly relieved if air with 1,200 anions per cc is taken in the body.
if the anion content of indoor air is raised to 1,500 per cc, it can improve the mood of those who stay in the room so that they can work better with higher efficiency.
therefore, anion content is an essential factor for human health and longevity.
the world health organization (who) has specified that the anion content in the air should not be lower than 1,000 per cc. in certain types of environment (such as the mountainous area), the inhabitants are free from troubles of inflammation and generally live longer. this is obviously related to the fact that the air there contains abundant anions. the positive effects of anions in the field of medical healthcare have in recent years attracted extensive attention worldwide
in the air, tiny water molecules and oxygen molecules with negative electricity can combine to generate negative ions that can promote the metabolism when coming into human blood through lung.that's why people will feel better when they are in forest or close to waterfall. what factors does the concentration of negative ions in the air have relation with? in the natural air, the concentration of negative ions depends on the climate, geographical conditions and atmosphere pollutions, etc.
negative ion in the air is absolutely necessary to human being just like sunshine. the life of negative ion is very short, it's about a few minutes in clean air and only a few seconds in dirty environment or even shorter. in the open fields, seashores, country, water and spring areas its life can reach to more than 20 minutes, because in these areas the air pressure is smaller and the dust is fewer, so more negative ions can be generated from the air.
4. benefits for human body
negative ions are exceedingly beneficial for a person's metabolism as a means of enhancing human behavior. they act in a complex mechanism to bring about hormone and biochemical reactions in the body and brain. it is impossible to get an overdose of negative ions, which act like pure water in washing away dirty poisons. generally, the more negative ions you are exposed to, the better and more uplifted you feel.
the human body consists of billions of cells, and each is enclosed by a cell wall. this cell wall performs many necessary roles like absorbing nutrition and eliminating waste material. the function of the entire cell (including the cell wall) will more likely normalize if there are enough negative ions in and outside of the cell.
the reverse holds true if there is a lack of negative ions and too many positive ions within a cell. adult diseases such as hypertension, arteriosclerosis, cerebral apoplexy and cancer occur.
other ailment due to lack of negative ions are: anemia, infirmity, constipation, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, gastroenteritis, hepatitis, allergies, kidney trouble, unbalanced autonomic nervous system and insomnia.
purification of blood: research done by dr. tanaka in japan revealed that when negative ionization is introduced, the ions in calcium and natrium (salt) in the blood increases, and the blood is purified by alkalinity rising in the blood.
reviving the cell: when the amount of negative ions in the blood is increased, cell functions are activated.. the electrical material exchange speeds up those functions and, nutrition is fully absorbed by the cell and waste material is expelled. metabolism is boosted and the functions of that cell are gradually revived.
increases immunity: as the amount of negative ions increases, the gamma globulin in the blood increases producing blood rich protein and antibodies.
control function of the autonomic nervous system: dr. tanaka found that negative ions control the balance in the autonomic nervous system between the insulin and adrenal functions. the result is strong resistance to diseases.
asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems and illnesses. many scientific studies have been conducted over the years (mostly in europe and russia) showing how exposure to high levels of negative ions drastically or significantly reduce asthma and allergy symptoms, as well as respiratory-related illness.
studies have also shown a link between negative ion treatment and benefits for the following:
migraine headaches: inhaling negative ions regulates the production of serotonin inside the brain. the overproduction of serotonin inside the brain is the cause of migraine headaches.
depression: a study at columbia university suggested that negative ion treatment is more effective than anti-depressant drugs such as prozac and zolof, and there are no side effects with negative ions.
fatigue: the overproduction of serotonin (chemical produced inside the brain) also causes fatigue, and negative ions regulate the production of serotonin inside the brain.
sleep: a study in france found that negative ionizers helped people to sleep better, by regulating the production of the chemical serotonin in the brain.
mental performance and concentration: several tests have shown people exposed to negative ion treatment perform much better in mentally-oriented activities than those who are not.
physical performance: due to test results performed by russian scientists, negative ionizers were always installed in the locker rooms and resting places for the russian athletes.
burns: studies performed in one hospital found that burn patients were far more likely to recover more quickly and thoroughly.
the role of negative ions on the air environment:
when people walk on the beach, waterfalls and a forest, can feel breath, comfortable and relaxed, one of the most important reasons is that the air contains rich anion.and air environment becomes poor is mainly due to the concentration ratio between positive and negative ions is unbalance, the air containing harmful gases and smoke, dust, viruses, bacteria, etc.on one hand air negative ions can adjust the positive and negative ions concentration ratio;on the other hand, can rise to purify airy action, the anion can make the micron grade invisible as the naked eye floating dust, through the anoin attract, collide form as molecules group sinking landed, and negative ion can make bacteria two level sex of protein reverse, and make the bacterium survival ability to drop or death. the characteristics of negative ions for air purification is fast inactivated speed, high inactivated.and the negative ion has inactivated role to the air, surfaces, microbial bacteria, viruses. the world health organization set the standard and relevant regulations on negative ions concentration in pure and fresh air. our country also will the weather monitoring system into negative ion, in the air environmental protection and other fields have a widely used.
air negative ions is known as "air vitamin", be regarded as the first elements to support livable cities and livable community. 2009 asia pacific environment protection association apepa, urban competitive research society, western china magazine based in hong kong, chengdu issued jointly by the "china high anion city reputation list", sichuan province scientific socialism, such as news publication board departments and chengdu each news media nearly hundreds people attended the conference. the 41 world expo in 2010 held in shanghai for the first time in china , shanghai world expo un hall, guangdong hall, ningbo museum, and other venues are adopting the most advanced anion occurred technology, application technology of ion converter produce the negative ion as the nature in order to built a healthy and comfortable environment of the exhibition. when talking about the shanghai world expo environment-friendly technologies application ,academician of chinese academy of engineering houlian points out this forward-looking forest-style natural life philosophy represents the future of urban development direction. in 2011 the world horticultural exposition in xian ba park on the somebody else area set up display anion technology and the health of human body exhibition hall, and set up the garden stations for anion monitoring, the analysis of air quality tracking.
