From the same study, “High levels of negative ions are found at the beach, in the mountains, the country, pine forests, near waterfalls and many other places people enjoy – places people…go to be refreshed and renewed. The air in these places creates an effect on human biochemistry.” (Jolley)
We’re all familiar with the rejuvenating effects of clean, fresh air. Even when you simply open a window, that fresh air makes you feel better all over. Why? A burst of negative ions and the subsequent release of the neuro-hormone, serotonin, produces a “good-all-over” feeling. The scientific proof is out there. And, your own experience demonstrates that the technology does, indeed, deliver improved health.
IT LOOKS GOOD AND IT’S GOOD FOR YOU.
It’s called Nefflon, Nefful’s proprietary fabric designed to generate negative ions in our luxurious line of bedding, undergarments, joint supports and accessories – from cozy Nefflon socks to scarves and caps that keep out the winter chill and improve your well being – 24 hours a day.
Nefflon, introduced in 1979, has been used by hundreds of thousands of people globally, increasing vitality, alleviating common aches and pains and eliminating anxiety and depression. And though studies on negative ion therapies have been undertaken since the early 20th century, only in recent decades has the technology advanced to the point where the health benefits of negative ions can be delivered effectively by wearing negative ion garments.
Nefful’s complete line of Nefflon durable bedding, undergarments, joint supports and other accessories are crafted from the highest quality materials and designed to provide the well-documented health benefits of negative ion therapy:
regulate body temperature no matter how hot or cold it is outside
produce a high concentration of life-giving negatively ionized oxygen
direct the healing powers of negative ions to specific sources of joint pain
improve mood and lessen anxiety and depression any time of the year
clean the air of bacteria and other harmful materials such as dust and mites
increase focus and energy/

Along with its line of bedding, undergarments, supports and accessories, Nefful’s products include solid science, unparalleled quality of materials and construction and, finally, improved health regardless of your age or location.
Authorities concur: negative ions improve human capacity to absorb and utilize oxygen, required for life. Negative ions accelerate delivery and processing of oxygen in the brain.
The results, which are borne out by over 100 years of scientific study, include increased abilities to focus and concentrate, increased levels of mental energy, improved ability to heal both physically and emotionally, relief of physical pain, the elimination of allergy-causing pollutants in the air, improved ability to manage stress, anxiety and depression and finally, higher, more efficient rates of lung capacity – even in long-time smokers.
There simply are no products to compete with Nefful’s quality and function. Once people have tried any of our Nefflon product lines, they’re convinced. The feel the benefits almost immediately. And nothing sells like success!
The Nefful company is based on two simple ideas: overall good health and quality throughout the manufacturing process of every product we carry.
This is one product line you’ll be proud to share with family, friends and the other important people in your life.
Nefful – it works. It’s science. It’s proven. And it’s your opportunity to share these clothes and bedding that are not only attractive and sturdy, but also deliver the health benefits of negative ion technology.
Negative Ions for the Brain
The Owner's Manual for the Brain, Everyday Applications from Mind-Brain Research
The atmosphere we breathe normally is full of positive and negative ions. Air conditioning, lack of ventilation, and long dry spells remove negative ions, which usually serve to latch onto airborne dirt particles and wrestle them to the floor, rendering the air purer. Roughly one-third of the population seems to be particularly sensitive to negative-ion depletion. The proportion of negative ions is highest around moving water (storms, oceans, rivers, waterfalls)—It's no wonder that we feel so energized at the beach. The best ratios of negative to positive ions are associated with waterfalls and the time before, during, and after storms. The worst are found in windowless rooms and closed, moving vehicles. Air purifiers typically work by emitting negative ions, which purify room air by attaching to impurities and sinking them.
High concentrations of negative ions are essential for high energy and positive mood (Thayer, 1996). In fact, Marian Diamond, a professor of neuroanatomy at the University of California, Berkeley, has found that levels of negative ions are inversely related to levels of serotonin in the brain. Negative ions suppress serotonin levels in much the same way that natural sunlight suppresses melatonin. Hence the invigorating effect of fresh air and sunshine and the correspondingly depressed feelings associated with being closed in and dark. If you deplete the air of negative ions, you experience an increase in serotonin and its attendant drowsiness and relaxation—not what you want when mental agility is demanded. Diamond’s research (1988), along with other information on ions, is summarized in Yepsen (1987).
In an interesting twist, Josh Backon, a member of the Department of Cardiology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, writes in an Internet posting (his E-mail address is email@example.com) that in order to increase left-hemisphere activity (linear, language, logical), one can block the left nostril and engage in "forced unilateral nostril breathing." Likewise, to increase right-hemisphere activity (creative, holistic, emotional), the right nostril should be blocked. This practice increases the supply of negative ions to a specific hemisphere.

Effects of negative ions on cognitive performance
Journal of Applied Psychology, Feb 1987 v72 n1 p131(7).
Abstract: Male and female subjects (undergraduate students) participated in two studies designed to investigate the impact of negative air ions on cognitive performance. In the first experiment, they worked on three different tasks (proofreading, memory span, word finding) in the presence of low, moderate, or high concentrations of such ions. Results indicated that among men, performance on two of these tasks (proofreading and memory span) was enhanced by moderate but not by high concentrations of ions. In the second experiment, undertaken to extend the generality of these initial results, male and female subjects performed two additional tasks (letter copying, decision making) in the presence of low, moderate, or high concentrations of ions. Output on the letter copying task increased significantly as ion level rose among both sexes. With respect to decision making, the tendency of male (but not female) participants to select initially preferred alternatives was significantly enhanced by moderate concentrations of negative ions. Together, the findings of these studies suggest that negative air ions can indeed exert appreciable effects on cognitive performance. However, contrary to claims often associated with advertising for commercially produced ion generators, these effects are neither simple nor uniformly beneficial in nature.
