Ionic Bands : Do They Improve Strength, Balance, Flexibility & Well being...Yay or Nay?

You may have come across these ionic bands which emit a negative charge, they’ve been about for a couple of years now and you may see them adorning the wrists of A-list stars such as David Beckham, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, P Diddy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Rubens Barrichello, and before she became heir to the throne, Kate Middleton!

The science (and theory) suggests that these bands emit far infrared rays and alpha waves with the intention of balancing bodily functions. Purported benefits include improved flexibility, strength, balance, endurance and higher energy levels.

Josh Rodarmel, one of the original developers of these bands states:

“My brother and I worked out a way of putting good frequencies into our holograms so they balance out the body, making it stronger and more flexible.”

Since this statement the bands have expanded and now you can buy various other brands that contain a powdered form of a semi-precious gem stone called Tourmaline. Tourmaline naturally emits tens of thousands of ions which supposedly improve strength and flexibility through kinesiology or muscle test mechanisms.

The bands have their critics, but the jury is out on whether these really do perform all the wonders the believers say they do. Whether it is a placebo or the real McCoy, if it works for you then who’s to say these bands are a waste of money!?
