Rain Promotes Healthy Bodies
Have you ever noticed how you feel uplifted and even slightly euphoric while walking in the rain? That’s because the air is literally being energized with negative ions as they’re released through the downpour. Any large body of water, whether it is the ocean, the bay, a flowing river, a waterfall or a lake, releases negative ions into the air, making the air fresh and electrified with alkaline properties.
This is extremely healthy for our bodies, because negative ions attach themselves to those nasty free radicals that cause aging and disease. Like electrolytes, negative ions alkalize our skin, hair, bones and everything else. And alkalization is good - it raises the quality of the air dramatically, lowering stress levels and thereby promoting overall health.
So, the next time you find yourself “caught in the rain,” rather than running from it, stop and breathe in those negative ions in the fresh, alkalized air and you’ll feel better and probably look better, too!
Happy travels! :)
