Wish You Were Standing by a Waterfall? Sports Clothing Could Be the Next Best Thing!
If, like me, you spend most of your time sitting at a desk surrounded by electrical equipment. Rushing around in the car ferrying your children to and from their next activity. So exhausted by the end of the day that all you can manage is to flop in front of the telly, then you are probably experiencing very low natural ionic (electromagnetic) energy levels from your surroundings. Even those of us who make time to get out to exercise regularly at the gym or in the fresh air playing sports memorabilia are not faring a lot better apparently.
So what is the fuss about all this ionic energy anyway? Well ionic energy is that awesome natural power you feel when you are in the presence of Niagara Falls (or so I’m told, sadly I haven’t managed to experience that for myself yet) or other great natural phenomenon such as vast oceans, high mountains, tropical storms, you get the idea. It gives us a feeling of improved energy, like we can achieve anything and take on the world – or at least the journey back to our comfortable hotel room. Now much as I would much rather be spending my time soaking up the fantastic powers of mother nature, sadly real life doesn’t let us do that very often so how can we experience this benefit without the jetlag and the hole in our bank balances that generally ensues?
Ionising fabrics. It’s that simple (or complicated if you are the one making them). There are a variety of different sporting garments and accessories available now which harness this natural power. And all we have to do is put them on and experience the benefits.
The sporting apparel industry are using fabrics which release ions at levels much higher than are available to us in our usual sporting environments – about twenty times more in some cases. This is better than sitting on top of a mountain – only without the view. Ionising fabrics bring a new range of benefits to the technical sports clothing industry and are changing the way that sports garments work and are worn. They are making use of these fabrics in various ways. You can buy them combined with the power of magnets as simple accessories such as necklaces and bracelets. These have the added benefit of being able to be worn at any time and bring a boost to your energy levels, make you more able to concentrate and can alleviate aches and pains and feelings of nausea. You have probably seen many sporting personalities wearing these already, they are not seeking awareness for a cause (not that there is anything wrong with those bracelets) but they are wearing them because they bring real advantages to them in their sporting careers and everyday life.
The other way we can use these fabrics is in baselayer garments. These are designed to maximise the advantages by covering as much of the body as possible. They improve the blood flow delivering more oxygenated blood to the muscles, improving power output and giving faster recovery rates. Some have the acknowledgment of renowned University Sports Technology Departments, so they really do work. Combining these fabrics with existing technological features such as moisture management and compression gives us mere mortals a better edge on the sports field or in the gym helping us to train harder and feel better. We don’t need to be world class athletes to benefit from them and I’m always in favour of a bit of extra help!
