Don't waste your money on this scam. The idea of a shirt with a
negatively charged electromagnetic field is ridiculous, the charge
would redistribute as soon as it touched you or the ground. You can't
just throw some electrons on a shirt and expect it to stay negatively
charged. Even if the shirt is made of some special material to prevent
the stray electrons from migrating away, it'll just attract positively
charged ions to cancel out the charge.
Now maybe they just meant it had negative ions, not that it was
negatively charged (the difference being that there must also be
positive ions to cancel the electric charge, while not necessarily
canceling the chemical effects of the negative ion). Ions can
certainly be useful, the positive silver ion is known for it's well
documented anti-microbial properties which can keep your clothes a bit
less stinky. However, because positive ions are matched with negative
ions, the electromagnetic field decays incredibly quickly. As in the
electromagnetic field wouldn't even penetrate your outermost dead skin
cells, much less affect blood flow. And of course, the chemical
effects of the ions wouldn't affect your blood flow either unless the
ions were leeching out of the shirt and being absorbed by your skin

Of course, a negative electromagnetic field doesn't really even make
much sense for promoting circulation. Oxygen is almost exclusively
negatively charged in the body, and hence repelled by other negative
charges. Although really, oxygen in blood is bound to iron which is
bound to hemoglobin which is trapped inside red blood cells, which are
not charged and not responsive to electromagnetic fields. And by the
way, the iron in blood is not in a form which responds to magnetic
fields, which is why your blood cells don't get ripped from your body
when you have an MRI taken.
Nothing but junk science here. If you want to experience the
revolutionary performance enhancing properties of static electrical
fields, just go scuff your socks along the carpet, but be sure not to
touch the door knob when you go outside to play or the effect may be
suddenly lost. In fact, it's gonna go disappear pretty fast no matter
what you do, which is why I always bring a section of carpet with me
to play, so I can recharge between points.
This is straight from the Ionx website...
"How IonX Works
When you expend energy, the molecules in your body are left holding a
positive charge. Positively charged ions alone provide no benefit and
can actually be harmful to your health. They need a negative ion to
couple with and stabilize, which releases energy essential to all
bodily functions. The imbalance or instability created in your system
through exercising is only rectified over a period of time, during
which the body can naturally recover.
IonX garments overcome this problem by creating a negatively charged
electromagnetic field around the body when wearing the garment, which
immediately works to restore the energy and balance in your system.
Negative ions in the fabric pass through the skin, neutralize the
positive ions and transform them into a storage bank of usable energy.
Being in direct contact with the skin and working with your body's own
electromagnetic charge, the fabric naturally enables maximum
absorption of the negative ions. "
The shirts are made of multiple layers that rub against each other
creating a negative interior layer and positive outer layer. Those
negative ions are automatically created just by your movement. I dont
know if it works but the science of it actually makes a lot of sense.- Hide quoted text -

70 bucks huh... I've got an idea:
This garment converts the energy wasted in heat when you speak into a
storage bank of usable energy. It may look like a sock stuffed in
your mouth but when sufficient energy has been stored can be used as a
hot-wrap for an injury, or, um, warm socks when it's cold. Suggest
rotating garments so that energy is always being collected.
