There have not been any clinical studies done with our FreeMart Nano Cards and most of the information we have concerning them is what we have received from the manufacturer and from member testimonials. There is however an overwhelming amount of research regarding positive and negative ions and far infrared light (FIR) and how they affect human health.
Negative ion meters are readily available and we will be getting some pictures of our cards being tested so that you won’t have to buy your own negative ion tester unless you want to.
What are Negative Ions?
Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we absorb in abundance in certain environments. Think of mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once negative ions reach our bloodstream, they produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.
Negative ions have long been attributed to improvements in mood and physical health and some have said they are the next best thing to love. Research supports the view that negative ions have a net positive effect on health, including improved mood, stabilized catecholamine regulation and circadian rhythm, enhanced recovery from physical exertion and protection from positive ion-related stress, electromagnetic radiation and exhaustion disorders. Negative ion-generating technology has been shown to eliminate airborne pollutants, dust, cigarette smoke, pet dander, pollen, mold spores, viruses, and bacteria from the air and reduce the negative effects of EMF radiation from electronic devices.
Early clues about the biological effect of positive ions on human health appeared as reports of increased irritability, migraine attacks and thromboembolism in response to alterations in atmospheric electrical states that accompany incoming weather fronts. (1)
Scientific evidence began to mount in the 1970s when researchers measured metabolic changes in mice and rats in response to changes in positively or negatively charged ions, including alterations in serotonin levels and recovery from illness. When exposed to positive ions (which accumulate in the atmosphere at the beginning of a storm) researchers routinely noted that animals became agitated, aggressive and were more prone to respiratory illness. Furthermore, when mice were infected with influenza virus and housed in an environment depleted of negative ions, death rates increased, indicating the need for negative ions in the environment as a benefit to overall health. (2)
Later, researchers measured the impact of atmospheric electricity on human subjects by monitoring daily changes in urine excretion of neurohormones in samples gathered from 1,000 volunteers exposed to positive ions generated 1 to 2 days prior to the arrival of a storm front. By measuring the changing levels of neurohormones in the 24-hour urinary output of the subjects during normal and weather-stress days, the researchers compiled a profile of changes in levels of serotonin, adrenaline, noradrenaline, histamine and thyroxine.
Researchers found that exposure to positive ions engendered by an incoming weather front produce a release of serotonin. (3) They further identified three classes of weather sensitivity reactions:
1. Irritable Syndrome;
2. Exhaustion Syndrome;
3. Hyperthyroidism with subclinical Apathetic Thyroid Symptoms.
Noting that these conditions occur during annual wind storms (Sirocco, Sharav and Santa Ana winds), the authors stated that the effects, “which are mainly due to positive ionization of the air,” could be “prevented by negative ionizing apparatuses.” (4)
Just as positive ions build up in the atmosphere prior to a storm front, negative ions accumulate following a storm. This surfeit of negative ions has long been associated with improvements in mood and physical health. Research conducted in the last decade support the view that negative ions have a net positive effect on health.
German researchers discovered a link between catecholamine regulation and lifespan after depriving experimental animals of negative ions. First, researchers isolated mice and rats in air-tight, sealed acrylic cases. Next, they filtered the ambient air to remove all negative ions from the sealed cases. Their research led to the discovery that a prolonged deficiency of negative ions led to an accelerated rate of death for the experimental animals. Examination of the animals led researchers to conclude that the results ‘strongly suggest that animal death is related to disturbances in neurohormonal regulation and pituitary insufficiency. (5)
To estimate the necessity of air ions (AIs) as a natural source of atmospheric gaseous superoxide for mammalia the effect of air ion deprivation on mice and rats was investigated. Ambient air deionization inside an experimental acrylic glass cage (AGC) was performed by electrostatic field, built up by acrylic glass surfaces. Under these conditions, four hours after the animals were placed into the AGC, the concentration of negative AIs was not detectable, the concentration of positive ions was (mean +/- SD) 77 +/- 18 ions x cm-3. The negative and positive AI concentrations in identical silicate glass cages (control) were 482 +/- 128 ions x cm-3 and 660 +/- 148 ions x cm-3 respectively. It was found that the prolonged deficiency of AIs in ambient air leads to accelerated death of the animals. (6)
Researchers at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow discovered that negative ions are able to help protect the body from induced physical stress. When the researchers immobilized rats and exposed them to negatively charged ions they discovered that the ions prevented the development of acute stress that are observed in untreated rats. The protective action of negative ions was observed in all the experimental animals independently of their types of behavior. (7)
British researchers at the Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences in Liverpool exposed male subjects to negative ions and measured physiological responses, including body temperature, heart rate and respiration, while at rest and during exercise. Negative ions were found to significantly improve all physiological states, particularly during rest. Most important was the finding that negative ions are “biologically active and that they do affect the body’s circadian rhythms.” (8)
Research conducted at the Institute of Biophysics at the Russian Academy of Sciences, found that exposure to negative ions increased levels of the protective antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD).” (9)

How to Use FreeMart Nano Cards
Simply put one of the Cards in your pocket or carry it with you. Not only are you receiving immediate health benefits, but now in cases of stress put upon the body by exercise or injury, you will experience less inflammation and recovery time will be improved.
It is recommended to place a card in each shoe of anyone who is required to be on their feet for long periods of time. Cards can also be applied to areas of pain to reduce inflammation.
Put a card in the vegetable crisper of your refrigerator or under the eggs, dairy products, and under the meat to preserve freshness of foods for longer periods of time. Cards can also be put under a fruit bowl on the counter, or with your whole grains, nuts, and seeds to keep them fresher.
Glue a Nano Card on the bottom of your car’s gas tank for ionization of your gasoline which translates to better combustion, increase energy, better gas mileage and reduced emissions. Put one on the gas meter coming into your home and in your electrical panel to reduce the consumption of electricity and lower your power bill. Put them under your bottom sheet in your bed or under your pillow for better sleep. Use your imagination as to where you can use them.
Tape one to your body or put one in a nylon stocking to be tied around your arm, leg, neck, forehead, temple, or wherever you are experiencing pain or inflammation.
Whenever there is pain or inflammation in the body, there is an overabundance of positive (poison) ions. The negative ions and FIR being generated by our FreeMart Nano Cards will penetrate through your clothing all the way into your deepest tissues including your bones to neutralize the positive ions that are associated with the inflammation.
The Nano Card is safe and beneficial for everyone – adults, children, babies, and pets. Pets love having the Nano Card in their beds and under their water dishes.
Nano Cards have been tested to provide beneficial Negative Ions and far Infrared Rays for more than 3 years. I like to have several of them close to me at all times. Try some for yourself and pass some out to your friends when you find somebody suffering from an ache or pain. Often times the pain will subside immediately and you will not only have a friend, but a customer for life.
Note: Occasionally, the nano cards may need to be refreshed. Simply add 1/4 – 1/2 tsp. of table salt to a small glass of water and immerse the card for about 60 seconds. The card will again be like brand new.
