Is there any other material besides silicone and a hologram composing these bracelets? Is there some magnet/precious metal within the silicone?
There are no metals or magnets in the bracelets. The Pro Ion wristband does contain negative ions.
What is an ion? What is a negative ion?
Ions are odorless and tasteless charged air particles produced in nature. Good or negatively charged ions are produced by certain naturally occurring minerals and Power Balance has incorporated a special blend of these into the inner white layer of the Pro Ion™ bands. These can be measured with a simple ion meter.
