What is Negative Ion?
Negative Ion has been recognized as “the vitamin of the air” due to its health benefits to human being. To fully understand the Ion Terminology, we must understand what are atoms. Atoms are the basic building blocks of everything, from a solid object to human beings. Atoms can lose or gain electrons and can bond with other atoms to create molecules. The core of an atom is called nucleus.“Ions” are atoms that have electrical charge. Ions are floating in the air around us all the time. When an atom or molecule is neutral, the number of protons (positive) and electrons (negative) is equal. However, when the number of protons and elecrons are not the same, it becomes an ion that is either positively or negatively charged. When ions gain an electron, it is called Anion. When ions lose an electron, they became positive ion, it is called Cation (oxidation).
