Waterfalls, beaches and mountains provide us with a sense of serenity and calmness, not just through their beauty, but also through the negative ions floating in their environment.
Semi-precious mineral strip
A LITTLE BIT OF A CRASH CHEMISTRY COURSE? WHY NOT. WHAT ARE NEGATIVE IONS?
Ions are invisible particles with an electrical charge. Some of these particles are positively charged, some negatively charged. The positive ions are the ones that have lost one or more electrons, while the negative ions gained one or more electrons.
Negative ions are, in fact, molecules of oxygen with an extra negative electrical charge also referred to as “anions”.
They abound in nature wherever energy is transferred into the air, for example by ultra-violet light from the sun, by lightning and thunderstorms, by friction within wind and rain, the splitting of water into droplets by waterfalls and surf, and by natural radiation in rocks and soil.
Also called the “Vitamins of the Air”, anions can be produced in nature by some mineral and Volcanic rocks, such as tourmaline, a component of our EasyDay semi-precious mineral strip. Tourmaline, a semi-precious stone, is a natural source of negative ions which have extensively documented health benefits.
Once in contact with the human body, the emanated negative ions fight off and reduce bacteria build up and thus control infections. Easy Day products work to reduce two of the most commonly occurring odor-causing bacteria, namely Klebsiella Pneumoniae and Staphylococcus Aureus, and a common yeast, Candida Albicans.*
How do they work to reduce bacteria?
The entire process of substantially reducing bacteria and viruses is based on one of the most natural and simple processes: annihilation between negative (anions) and positive (bacteria, germs and viruses) charges.
As a result Easy Day products, armed with their semi-precious strip, emanate negative ions when in contact with the human body. These ions have numerous and various benefits:
- Balance pH and hormone levels*
- Reduce inflammation*
- Reduce bacteria build-up and help control infections*
- Eliminate unwanted odor*
FAR INFRARED RAYS
Easy Day products, equipped with their semi-precious mineral strip, among numerous features have the ability to emit far infrared rays (FIR), that are low intensity rays that warm muscles.
Far Infrared Rays (FIR) are a naturally occurring form of energy. We experience them when warmth is felt as the sun caresses our skin, in fact, these rays are responsible for over half of the energy emitted by the sun. Research has proven over time that these are some of the most beneficial energies that reach the human body.
The Far Infrared Rays (FIR) produced by bio ceramics enhance the body’s microcirculatory system, strengthen the body’s metabolic system & improve body’s resistance to disease. They cause a warming effect once they enter the human body by activating molecules and body cells. Different individuals will feel different intensities of the warming sensation.
- Benefits of Far Infrared Therapy:
- Relieves muscle spasms
- Reduces joint stiffness
- Reduces migraine pressures
- Reduces pain during menstruation
Easy Day sanitary pads and liners can help minimize the pain and discomfort from menstruation cramps.
About half of women experience menstrual cramps, and about 15% describe the pain as severe. It has been shown that women who do not exercise experience more painful menstrual cramps.
Certain psychological factors such as emotional stress may also increase the likelihood of having uncomfortable menstrual cramps.
What causes menstrual cramps?
During each menstrual period, if there is no sperm to fertilize the egg, the uterus contracts to expel its lining. These uterine contractions cause much of the pain felt during menstrual cramps because the contractions inhibit blood flow to the lining of the uterus.
