Yes, that is true. The Russians and Europeans have been studying and using negative ions for a long time. Among the findings: Russian Ion-Athletics Study In static endurance the gymnast control group had a decreased endurance after 25 days while the negative ion group showed a 46% improvement. The track and field control group’s static endurance improved 40% after 25 days while the negative ion track and field group improved by 192%. In dynamic endurance the gymnasts had no control group but the negative ion gymnast showed an improvement of 87% over 25 days. In track and field the control group had a 24% improvement after 25 days while the negative ion group had a 240% improvement. In reaction time the gymnast control group managed to shorten their response time by 11 milliseconds, while the gymnast negative ion group shortened theirs by 22 milliseconds. The track and field control reaction time shortened by 4.5% at the end of 25 days, while the track and field negative ion groups shor
