CCC BaseLayer IonX is revolutionary in apparel technology as it delivers ionic energy to the body through a negatively charged electromagnetic field.
CCC BaseLayer IonX improves performance. Ionisation improves the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to bring more energy to the muscles, which increases your average power output, improving speed and strength.
CCC BaseLayer IonX accelerates recovery. The improvement in blood flow effeciently flushes out residual waste products such as lactic acid, which
is left in the muscles after high intensity activity. Recovery is accelerated, therefore training or competition can begin again sooner.
"IonX™ represents a revolutionary performance apprel technology. A study conducted in the Sports Technolgy Laboratory at Loughborough University showed a significant increase in repetitive, short duration, high intensity exercise performance (power output) in both competitive and recreational athletes when wearing IonX™ versus non-ionised control garments. This improvement is likely to be functionally relevant to all team sport players or indeed anybody undertaking repetitive bouts of high intensity exercise during training or performance"

IonX™ - Ionised Energy Fabric™ performance apparel and compression support delivers ionic energy to the body through a negatively charged electromagnetic field.
Short version of explanation for those who are lazy to read the details:
* Ionx Recovery Gear are tight-fitting layers worn next to the skin.
* They are saturated with negative ions.
* These ions, according to manufacturers’ claim, increase oxygen flow during exercise and can speed recovery and removal of lactic acid and therefore improving overall athletic performance.
* Longer version of explanation for those who are keen to find out more:
o According to Canterbury, when we expend energy, the molecules in our body are left holding a positive charge. Positively charged ions alone do not give any benefit and can actually be harmful to health. These ions need a negative ion to couple with for stabilization. The imbalance or instability created in our bodies created through exercising is only rectified over a period of time, during which the body can naturally recover.
o IonX garments overcome this problem by creating a negatively charged electromagnetic field around the body. This magnetic filed will work to restore the energy and create the balance in our bodies. Negative ions in the fabric pass through the skin, neutralize the positive ions and transform them into a storage bank of usable energy.
Increased Blood Flow
Increased delivery of oxygen to muscles
Increased average power output by 2.7%
Further more IonX garments carry a minimum of 3500 IEI. (Ionic Energy Index) which is literally the amount of energy needed to be on the top of a (really) high mountain. Just have a look at this:
The International Rugby Board asked the World Anti-Doping Agency for a ruling. They replied that they were happy — for now. Spokesman Frederic Donze said:
'Since there is no scientific publication supporting claims that changes in the body ion charges or magnetic field distribution enhance performance, and since such technologies do not contain prohibited substances, these technologies should not be considered as a banned method to date.'

I looked into a (negative) ionized air purifier a while back. The claims were that positive ions are created by such things as pollution and that negative ions, which are naturally generated by events such as lightning, ocean waves, sunlight, thunderstorms, and waterfalls, would cancel the positive ions out and improve my air.
