Benefits of negative ions:
-Enhances blood circulation and blood purification:
-Improving your immune system
- Reducing minor aches and pains, and many other conditions resulting
from poor blood circulation. (Can be seen clearly under microscope)
-Increases energy and power.
- You will feel more energized, and less fatigued.
- Reduces stress and anxiety by calming our nervous system.
-Improves your focus and concentration,
These benefits of the"Cameleon Cover" are obtained with the release of negative ions, which helps to neutralize the harmful effects of positive ions in your body.
Electronics, such as cell phones, televisions, laptops and computers, along with pollutants in our environment like smog, smoke, electrical grids etc., all generate harmful positive ions which are absorbed into our body. When we have too many positive ions in our body and blood stream, we lose our natural electrical balance and it slows down our blood circulation. This results in us feeling tired, unwell and â€œunbalancedâ€?.
Powdered minerals, which are infused into the"silicone steering wheel cover"Â help to improve our bodys electrical balance. By generating negative ions, which neutralize the
harmful effect of positive ions, our "Cameleon Cover can TUNE your body to back to its natural state.
Tourmaline Is A Big Part To Our Products
So what is tourmaline? Tourmaline is known for its color and collectors item for geologist. There are many different uses for tourmaline and also many different formats. By formats we mean its chemical state. Tourmaline has become a primary focus for our special blend and why our energy Cameleon steering wheel covers, are of the highest quality and count of negative ions and the only one on the market.
Tourmaline Known As A Gem
Tourmalines are gems/semi-precious stones that have a wide spectrum of colors. There is a long history behind this stone, as far back as old Egyptian times. Tourmaline is known for its rainbow look and multi-colors. In fact, the name tourmaline comes from the Singhalese word "tura mali"; it means the stone with mixed colors. Tourmaline is a very beautiful and out performs all other known gems because of it's multiple color schemes. Tourmaline is special it's ability to change colors in different light settings. No one tourmaline stone is alike, they can range from red to green to blue and yellow in color. The science behind this color is due to mixed crystals of aluminum boron silicate and its ability to change composition. The changing of the composition is the reason for the variety of colors.
Tourmaline Can Be Electrically Charged
Despite tourmalines notorious reputation for color scientist love tourmaline because of its ability to be electrically charged. This means you can heat the stone and allow it to cool and as a result the stone can carry a negative charge. Tourmaline has a positive charge at one end and a negative charge at the other end. This is known as a pyro-electric charge and stems from the Greek word, "pyr", meaning fire. The stone can also become charged from intense pressure, such as volcanoes. Actually volcanoes are the biggest producer of tourmaline ash and rock that carries the electrical charge found in tourmaline. This is where negative ions play a huge role in tourmaline and why we use it in our products. Chemical bonding of atoms to lose an electrical charge takes quite a process and is very difficult to do by man. Natural is better! Nature is better! Cameleon Cover, carries such high negative ionic charges in our produce due to the nature of tourmaline and its ability to become charged under extreme pressure.
Ions are charged particles, either positive or negative, that attain a charge through the loss or gain of electrons. A positive ion has fewer electrons than protons, resulting in a net positive electrical charge. Negative ions contain additional electrons, which provide a negative electrical charge.
These ions are essentially odorless, tasteless and invisible molecules. However, they may be observable as other phenomena, for example as static electricity.
Positive or negative ions enter the body, as do other air molecules, through inhalation.
Presence of ions in the environment
Ions are created by atmospheric conditions that are either natural or man-made.
Electrical equipment is a well-known example. An electrical apparatus that uses of produces a significant amount of electrical current (for example, a large transformer), creates sizable numbers of positive ions. A noticeable effect is the presence of ozonated air (a detectible electrical odor) near electrical machinery in operation.
In contrast, there are natural conditions that increase the amount of negative ions. Elevated numbers of negative ions are present in the air in forests, the seashore, and near waterfalls and other natural water features.
Effects of ions
Frequent exposure to electrical equipment in operation has been reported to cause a feeling of fatigue or illness. This is believed due to the positive ions generated by the apparatus.
Negative ions appear to contribute to positive changes in mood and behavior.
Another way that negative ions may promote heath is that allergy-provoking particles such as dust and pollen possess a positive electrical charge. When negative ions are introduced to the environment, they appear to counteract the allergenic effects of these positively charged ions.
Additional Research Facts: Negative Ions
Numerous studies have shown there are significant health benefits associated with the use of negative ions, and that a negative ion depleted atmosphere can adversely affect health. Negative ions, nature's air purifiers, are produced by sunlight, lightning, wave actions and waterfalls. This is why the air seems cleaner at the beach or near moving bodies of water. Move into the city, where the production of negative ions has been disrupted by human progress, and the air is heavy with particles that cannot be naturally removed, which can mean trouble for people with respiratory problems. Using a negative ion air purifier in the home and office can be helpful in preventing asthma attacks and allergy symptoms by removing dust, cigarette smoke and other pollutants from the air.
A negative ion air purifier can help alleviate the breathing problems associated with asthmatic allergies, chronic bronchitis, emphysema and other respiratory problems. Almost all particles in the air have a positive ion charge. These particles contain dust, bacteria, viruses, allergens and other pollutants that, when breathed in, can cause asthma attacks, allergies and illness. Negative ions attach to floating particles, at which point they become too heavy to remain suspended in the air and fall to the surface below, where they can be removed with normal cleaning such as dusting and vacuuming.
In addition to making the air safer and easier to breathe, there are numerous other health benefits of using a negative ion air purifier. Studies have shown that ionizing the air with air purifiers can be effective in the treatment of depression, seasonal affective disorder, migraine headaches and fatigue, and have proven effective in reducing the incidence of infections in burn patients. Interestingly, studies have also shown that infants do not cry as much or as often when a negative ion air purifier is being used.
The health benefits of ionizing air purifiers also include improved mental concentration and performance, better and more restful sleep, improved physical performance and a reduction in the number of work days lost to illness. Therefore, the use of these air purifiers can greatly increase productivity in the workplace, as well as improve overall health.

Basics to the benefits of silicone:
Natural: Silicone is an inert, rubber-like material, that is safe, durable and pliable. Silicone is made up of silicon (a natural element present in organic materials like sand, quartz and rock). Silicon is transformed into silicone when combined with oxygen, carbon and hydrogen.
Non-Toxic: Because it is a natural material, it does not contain any toxic chemicals like those found in plastics like BPA, Lead and Phthalates. It is also hygienic, hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria. Silicone does not react with food or beverages and does not produce any hazardus fumes.
Clean: Silicone is extremely easy to clean. It can be safely boiled to sterilize and can be cleaned in the dishwasher. Certain strong smelling foods can permeate silicone, although this can be easily remedied by boiling in water. Silicone also doesn't warp or damage under prolonged exposure.
Versatile: Silicone can withstand both hot and cold temperatures. Also resistant to age, sunlight, moisture and chemicals. Silicone has the capacity to evenly distribute heat and the ability to cool instantly after heated. Highly portable and durable, these can easily replace disposable dishware. Microwave, freezer and dishwasher safe.
For all these reasons, we love silicone as a material for safe products for your home and family.
How Silicone are being used in many applications:
Silicones are inert, synthetic compounds with a variety of forms and uses. Typically heat-resistant and rubber-like, they are used in sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medical applications(e.g., breast implants, cookware, and insulation
Silicone seems to be more expensive than other rubber, why is this?
Silicone is more expensive than most rubber types because it is a speciality high performance polymer with outstanding qualities. It is made in relatively low quantities and requires expensive and complicated primary manufacturing facilities.
