In brief: See below

Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments.
Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.
