Hokutolite is an orthorhombic sulfate mineral. It contains 2 main mixed components: Barium sulfate (BaSo4) and Lead sulfate (PbSO4) in the proportion of 4 over 1. Hokutolite’s radioactivity comes from its inclusion of rare earth elements in radioactive radium. Hokutolite experiences thousands of years forming, absorbing the essence of heaven and earth. As a result, Hokutolite can emit natural negative ion, which is believed to be beneficial for human body.
In the field of medical profession, negative ions were confirmed to have the ability of sterilizing and purifying the air. The mechanism of this benefit generally consists of negative ion’s combination with bacteria. This causes the bacteria to bear changes in their structure or energy transfer, resulting in bacterial death. The bacteria eventually sink to the ground. Medical research shows that, the air of negatively charged particles can raise blood oxygen level, contribute to oxygen delivery, absorption and utilization, with the promotion of the new blood cell supersedes the old. Furthermore, negative ions can also enhance the immunity system of human body, grow the body muscle and regulate the body functions. For this reason, negative ion in the medical community is often referred to as the "air vitamin"
