Health Benefits of Titanium Bracelets
Since its discovery in the late 1700s,
titanium has been a metal revered for its strength, durability and
compatibility with the human body. In fact, it is used today in artificial
body parts, jewelry for those with sensitive skin and even in alternative
medicine, where the metal has found a new following.
Titanium has a few main advantages over other metals used in jewelry:
is able to not only attract, but capture
oxygen and then transfer it into the body. Oxygen has the ability to
relieve inflammation and pain. Wearing a titanium bracelet in
close proximity to the inflamed location will increase the flow of oxygen to
the area. Numerous arthritis patients and sports players are known to wear a
titanium bracelet. Titanium is also seen as a pain relief treatment for
carpal tunnel syndrome. It stimulates all the nerves in the region that is
affected to increase healing. Titanium’s magnetic properties also attract
iron-rich blood cells, increasing the blood flow in the area, offering the
possibility of faster pain relief.
Comfort and Style
When it comes to
the benefits of titanium and titanium jewelry, comfort and style can
never be ignored. Because it is a refractory metal, titanium is easily able
to be created specially to suit the individual styles or a person in a way
that other metals are unable to. Other metals cannot change color without
additions of alloys, however, titanium can. Titanium is also extremely
lightweight. This makes it comfortable to wear as a bracelet, ring or
titanium bracelets are also believed to hold a positive charge. In
alternative medicine, pain is said to have a negative charge. If you will
remember back to middle school science class, you will know that a positive
charge and a negative charge cancel out one another. Thus, the titanium
bracelet relieves pain by neutralizing it.
Titanium is 40%
lighter 25% stronger than stainless steel.
Medical alert bracelets are made of titanium because the metal is less
vulnerable to corrosion than iron-based alloys. It is also less easily bent
than gold and silver. In fact, titanium can withstand higher temperatures,
saltwater and the rough handling that medical identification and alert
bracelets suffer over the years. Their durability also makes the bracelets
more likely to withstand a catastrophe or accident.
Unlike many other
metals used in medicine, titanium is compatible with the human body in that
is can be used without fear of allergic rejection by the body. Often metals
are mixed with other metals, such as nickel, and the skin reacts negatively
to the addition of alloys. TA2 Titanium jewelry contains no other
alloys and this is one of the important benefits of titanium jewelry. If an
implant is rejected, medical problems arise, the least of which being
infection. The implant must be removed and replaced at immense cost to the
patient. Titanium parts overcome this obstacle and can remain inside the
body for many years. Titanium bracelets can therefore be worn without
causing the wearer infection, rashes or increased pain and swelling.
Titanium responds very little to electricity, heat and magnets, making it
the perfect metal use in magnetic bracelet.
Research and Development
Because of all the
health benefits of titanium bracelets, modern medical researchers are
using them to treat internal disorders like reflux. The University of
Pittsburgh Medical Centre is working with the use of a titanium beaded
bracelet to prevent acid reflux. The bracelet is wound around the lower part
of the esophagus where the sphincter lies. It is tightened to hold the
sphincter closed so that the stomach acid will not leak out and cause
protective surface layers, which gives it excellent resistance to corrosive
attacks by saltwater, sea air and certain acids, and it is capable of being
submerged in water for long periods of time without sustaining damage or
Used in titanium
magnetic bracelets, the metal is a lustrous, silver-grey metallic element.
Because of its high tensile strength, light weight, extraordinary corrosion
resistance, and ability to withstand extreme temperatures, TITANIUM
is used widely in aircraft industry. However, please note that our titanium
bracelets are not the same quality (Titanium Alloy) that is being used in
the aircraft and aerospace industry. They are made of Surgical Titanium
TA2 Grade, which are used in medical devices such as implants, heart
valves and so on.
characteristic of Titanium means that they are perfect for use in magnetic
bracelets for the active person. Magnetic therapy titanium bracelet is the
solution that many people that lead active life style are looking for
magnetic bracelets that will not be a hinder. The magnetic titanium
bracelets are most sought after by golfers, who want to have a magnetic
bracelet that may not affect their swing as any stainless steel magnetic
bracelet. Titanium magnetic bracelets will be an indispensable addition to
any golfers equipment, as well as for everybody who wish to wear a magnetic
therapy bracelet but fear the weight may be of inconvenience.
