The ionization of the air (also called ionization) in combination with the laminar outflow of the enriched air makes Biow unique. But what exactly is ionized air anyway? And what effects does ionized air have on our health?
What is ionized air?
Ionized air means that a previously untreated air becomes enriched with negatively charged ions (called anions). In nature, far from human influence, this happens in a natural cycle. The sun's UV radiation, thunderstorms, rain, water atomization (e.g., near waterfalls or on coasts), and many other natural factors create high anion density in the air. The places we perceive as particularly "fresh"have high anion contents of at least 5,000 anions/cm³. In such places as mountains, near the sea, and in forests, we intuitively like to stay and feel comfortable. In the vicinity of waterfalls, this value can rise to over 60,000 anions/cm³. The "freshness" felt there can be described more precisely: free of odors, of germs, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens such as nanoparticles (e.g. fine dust).
Influence on the human organism
Why we intuitively feel at home in mountains, by the sea or in dense forests is well researched scientifically. Because of the sheer number of anions, we inhale many of them with every breath. The result is increased uptake of oxygen. And more oxygen in the blood has far-reaching health consequences. In particular, the respiratory, digestive and nervous systems benefit greatly from ionized air. It is not for nothing that numerous sanatoriums, lung and nerve clinics are found in mountain regions and near the sea (picture: Sanatorium Schatzalp, Davos).
Anion density in urban areas
Biow provides fresh mountain air indoors
We generally go about our daily lives in urban areas. Children go to school, adults go to work or run the household. The goal of Biow is to provide healthy air as we know it from mountains and forests also indoors. A quick reminder: this "fresh" air is characterised by purity on the one hand and a high concentration of anions on the other. These are exactly the conditions that Biow creates. This is how Biow creates the effect of natural, fresh air in your home.
