Studies demonstrate, and people claim (myself included), that grounding enhances aspects of health like sleep and mood, chronic pain and inflammation, wound healing and exercise recovery, circadian rhythms and blood glucose, and other benefits.

This process of the Earth donating electrons to free radicals, rendering them harmless, is anti-oxidation. In other words, planet Earth is the biggest antioxidant ever. It’s also free…unlimited…and everywhere.Read More
