About Germanium, FIR, Negative Ions & Hematite

May 11th, 2010

Leading the trend is the driving force that has been pushing us to excel in the magnetic jewelry business. To live up to our customers’ expectation, we have always been searching for the latest products and designs, especially those of most potential health benefits and trendy styles in addition to our own new in-house designer styles.  Here they are! Many new magnetic bracelets with germanium, FIR, negative iron and hematite implants have been introduced to the US market for the first time. They are available in all three major type of metals commonly used to make magnetic jewelry bracelets, namely tungsten, titanium and stainless steel. But why germanium, FIR, negative iron and hematite? Here is why:

Germanium is believed to have blood-thinning effects and may be beneficial to people with high VLDL triglyceride levels, low protein or phosphorus, very high calcium, or poor circulation due to atherosclerosis.

FIR stands for far infrared, which possesses a property to emit thermal heat capable of penetrating to a certain depth into the human body and thus help improve circulation and alleviate inflammation as well as low body temperature.

Negative irons or anions are supposedly abundant in nature that the human body has adapted to over millions of years of evolution and thus an essential natural element for health. Unfortunately, due to worldwide deforestation and man made change to the environment as a result of civilization, negative irons are no longer in balance in a global scale and especially depleted in an urban environment. The ironic substance implanted in our bracelets gradually releases negative irons to at least partially restore this imbalance in a localized setting and promote the well being of the wearer.

Hematite has long been used as ornaments in Babylonian, Indian, Egyptian  and Chinese history.  It is believed to possess supernatural power to fence of evil and have a spiritual pacifying effect.
