Benefits of Salt Lamps

A series of scientific studies show that salt crystal lamps can increase the negative ion count by up to 300%! In Nature negative ions are created by wind, sunlight, surf waterfalls and rainstorms. Generally, a negative ion is an electronically charged molecule made up of oxygen. A positive ion in the air is a molecule that has lost its electrons in polluted air. In fresh country air we find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimeter - the size of a sugar cube. Near strong surf or close to a waterfall up to 10,000 negative ions can be found, however the number of negative ions in major capital cities at rush hour does not even reach 100

The impact of negative ions is powerful. Originally, it was found to speed recovery in burn or asthma patients, but was later discovered to affect serotonin levels in the bloodstream, stabilize alpha rhythms and positively impact our reactions to sensory stimuli. The greater level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved will being and enhanced human performance on mental tasks.

Ionized air also substantially reduces the number of airborne bacteria indoors. Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that an amazingly small number of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people.

Salt Lamps are not medical devices. However, by emitting negative ions, they can reduce a number of indoor air pollutants. Negative ions have many known benefits, including providing relief from sinus, allergies, hay fever as well as migraine headaches, reduce the severity of asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity and concentration, increase lung capacity and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu.
