What is Anion?

Negative ions (anion)are created in nature with air molecules broken apart from sunlight, radiation and moving air or water. It is odorless, tasteless molecules that are breathed into our respiratory systems. ” The action of the pounding surf creates negative air ions, we also see it immediately after spring thunderstorms, when people report lightened moods”, says ion researcher Michael Terman, PhD of Columbia University in New York.
High concentrations of negative ions (anion) can be found in nature, mountains, forests, waterfalls and beaches, where people feel energized and invigorated, which helps relieve stress, alleviate depression and boosts energy.
Negative ions (anion) increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreases drowsiness and more mental energy”, says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: everyday applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for the Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C..
You might feel instantly refreshed and invigorated the moment you open a window and breath in fresh air.
They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.
In a study conducted by Columbia University, 25 people with SAD (Seasonal Affective Depression) sat in front of a negative ion (anion) air purifier for a half hour every morning for a month. Half the subjects were given a low level of negative ions and the other half a high level. The higher level of negative ion (anion)  treatment proved to be most effective as antidepressants against SAD like “Prozac” and “Zolof” without the side effects of these drugs.

Sanitary Napkins / Sanitary Pads with Anion

Anion or Negative Ion

What are Negative Ions?

All living things have a relationship with ‘anions‘ or negative ions. Have you ever noticed that before a rainstorm you may feel edgy and your joints may hurt? That’s because there are more positive ions than negative ions (Anion) in the air. Once a storm has passed, the overabundance of negative ions / anion  brings you a calm, peaceful feeling.

How Environments Change Anion Counts

Air in urban areas contains about 400-500 negative ions/cubic centimeter air. Country air has 700-1000 while mountains have more than 2000! That’s why you feel great in the mountains.

Anions and Health

The number of anions in the air can impact your health. When there are too many positive ions and too few anions, the human body can develop symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, migraines,depression and shortness of breath. These symptoms can be rapidly relieved if air with 1200 anions per cubic centimeter or more is breathed in. Negative ions can improve the sense of well being so that multi-tasking becomes easier and productivity rate increases. Experts agree that anion content is an essential factor for human health and longevity.

What Negative Ions Do

Under normal circumstances, air molecules are neutral. With ionization, free electrons with a negative charge combine with neutral charged molecules to become negatively charged. They then gather dust particles and neutralize bacteria and viruses which are positively charged. Anions in the air are just as important as vitamins and minerals in food. These anions are sometimes called ‘air vitamins or ‘air scavengers.’

Why Not Use Anions in Personal Products?

The benefits of anions in healthcare have captured extensive attention worldwide. After years of research, Winalite Technology Co. Ltd of Shenzhen successfully developed a healthcare, high-tech sanitary napkin and granted national patents. Products are now in 34 countries.

The anionic tape in the Sanitary Pads emits 6070 anions per cubic cm air, making the immediate environment rich in anions that can effectively inhibit the survival and duplication of bacteria and viruses that may cause vaginitis. This slightly alkaline environment also works as a natural deodorant. Almost all types of female genital inflammation are caused by anaerobic bacteria that don’t like anions. Love Moon Sanitary Pads promote womens’ health through technology. Men are also enjoying tremendous health benefits from the negative ions in the sanitary pads.

Anion (Negative Ion)

Do you know “anions” (or negative ions)?


Under normal circumstances, the air molecules or atoms are neutral. Due to natural ionization caused by cosmic rays, ultraviolet rays, micro radiation, lightning and thunder etc, some air molecules will lose some electrons that were orbiting around the nucleus and these free electrons with negative charge will combine with other neutral air molecules to make them negatively charged. These are the negative ions in the air. They are colourless, odorless and have strong absorption capability to absorb micro particles in the air to remove dust and bacteria. Anions in the air are as important as vitamins in the food and are given such names as ‘air vitamin’, ‘longevity element’, ‘air scavenger’ etc.

Anions have special significance to human health. Their effects should not be underestimated. They can have extraordinary absorption capability to gather the particles, bacteria and viruses which are normally of positive charge and neutralize them. They can enter the cells of the bacteria to kill off the bacteria. More anions in the air would mean fewer bacteria and when the concentration of anions reaches a certain level, the number of bacteria would be reduced to zero.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has specified that the anion content in the air should not be lower than 1,000 per cc. In certain types of environment (such as the mountainous area), the inhabitants are free from troubles of inflammation and generally live longer. This is obviously related to the fact that the air there contains abundant anions.

The positive effects of anions in the field of medical health care have in recent years attracted extensive attention worldwide. After many years of research, Winalite Technology Co. Limited of Shenzhen had successfully developed the healthcare sanitary napkin to turn this ordinary product into one with high value added and high-tech content, making it possible to be granted national patents. The anionic tape in our sanitary napkin can emit 6,070 anions per cc to effectively inhibit the survival and duplication of bacteria and viruses, which are the causes of vaginitis. Almost all types of female genital inflammation are caused by anaerobic bacteria. When the anionic tape in the pad emits high density of anions, it also produces abundant ionized oxygen to fundamentally change the anaerobic environment, promote biological enzymic transformation and balance the acidity and alkalinity. At the same time, under normal temperature, it can emit biological magnetic wave of wavelength 4 to 14 micron at more than 90% emission rate which is beneficial to the human body as it can activate the water molecules in the cells to make them exist at high energy level suitable for synthesis of biological enzymes. This is therefore a purely physical process to achieve the antibacterial and deodorization functions, to care for the woman’s health through technology and to benefit all women.
