Simmons Beautyrest boasts a new Ionic Therapy technology that puts it head and shoulders above the rest – the innovative O2+ Oxy Plus range. Refresh… rejuvenate… revitalize – with a motto like that, you can be sure that you’re looking at the new best, health-orientated bed range around!!
Let’s take a look at some background information on this new product…
The O2+ Oxy Plus uses negative ions to balance the build-up of positive ion in your body through poisons from air pollution, food preservatives and chemicals and heavy metals in drinking water. Wondering what ions are exactly? Ions are atoms that have either a positive or negative charge. An atom is composed of protons and electrons that have positive and negative charges, respectively. The number of protons and electron are usually equal, giving the atom a neutral, or no charge. If there are more protons than electrons in the atom, it has a positive charge – a positive ion. If it has more electrons, the atom becomes a negative ion.
Positive ions in your bloodstream (called free radicals) cause your cells to work slower and less efficiently. They also decrease respiration quality, increase your chance of having allergic reactions, can cause headaches and causes long-term fatigue.
Negative ions counteract these effects; they balance out the “bad” positive charges. These ions accelerate oxygen delivery to cells, tissue and organs, and so purifying your blood and revitalizing cell metabolism at the same time. They stimulate the healing process that combats stress and physical problems, reduces the presence of air born viruses that are to blame for respiratory problems or allergies, improve your mental performance, concentration and ability to focus and they regulate the production of serotonin in the brain which relieves migraines. Negative ions also enhance immune function in general and protect your mind and body from the harmful effects of environmental stressors (electromagnetic fields).
So, now that you know what an ion is and how the positive and negative ions affect you, you can understand how a bed treated with negative ions could benefit you immensely – which is exactly what Simmons has done!! Simmons has harnessed a new technology and produced the O2+ Oxy Plus range that increases the amount of negative ions in your sleep atmosphere. The combination of your body heat and movement while you sleep activates the negative ions in the treated mattress to form a force around your bed, enhancing your breathing and allowing the ions to be absorbed easily through your skin and by inhalation. The many health benefits of this product are as follows:
- Easy breathing.
- A decrease in allergic reactions.
- Headache relief.
- Fast relief from fatigue, making you feel energetic.
- Reduces stress.
- Is an immune booster.
- Increases good blood circulation.
