CONCENTRATIONS OF BENEFICIAL NEGATIVE IONS FOUND IN NATURE
Air ionisation has always been known to have an effect on people. It is easily detected during changes in the weather. For example, a sudden increase in positive ions in the air before a storm affects people badly, while an increase in negative ions (anions) after the storm refreshes and stimulates.
In nature, the highest concentrations are found near mountain waterfalls (around 5,000 anions/cm³), in forests (800 – 1,800 anions/cm³) and by the sea (about 1,000 anions/cm³), while these values are significantly lower in cities and confined spaces.
ŠPIK is the kingdom of negative ions
Hotel Špik boasts an incredible concentration of negative ions in the air. A small waterfall is created by the upper section of Sava river directly outside the hotel; here, the concentrations of negatively charged ions is between 2,000 – 4,000 negative ions/cm³. The Martuljek waterfalls, where the concentrations exceed a staggering 20,000 negative ions/cm³, are only a 15-minute walk away.
Negative ions prevent oxidation and thereby alleviate all types of inflammatory processes. Breathing exercises in air enriched with negative ions have a remarkable therapeutic effect on respiration since they alleviate allergies and asthma, have a beneficial effect on concentration, improve the metabolism, concentration, counteract fatigue, and increase resistance to diseases.
Each of us has a different metabolism, therefore it is important to know what kind of ”fuel” works best for our body.
