In my earlier article on negative ions, I explained about why negative ions are generally good for us, how much negative ions we need vs how much we are actually getting, why negative ions help us fend off free radicals, and how negative ions can help cancer.
But for most of us relatively healthy folks, negative ions can still help our health and PREVENT any major health issues. I am compiling my research to summarize how negative ions can help with various health conditions. This article will focus on Hypertension, Cardiovascular Disease and Lung Diseases.
Negative Ions – Hypertension, Cardiovascular and Lung Diseases
1) Accumulation of fats leads to increased formation of free radicals and potential inflammatory reactions within the vascular cells and tissues. Furthering the problem, accumulation of fats within the blood vessels leads to narrowing of the blood vessels resulting in overall increase in blood supply to other parts of the body. (1)
Negative ions help in stabilization of the functions of the heart by promoting its muscle activity, regulating autonomic nerves that help the heart maintain its optimal function. (1) Negative Ions can activate cells and rejuvenate muscle cells in vessel walls, thus preventing or improving vascular sclerosis, eliminating factors of hypertension, which resolve the problems of cardiovascular diseases from the root.

Research has found anions to be a potent dilator of (rat) coronary blood vessels (1,9)
