Most magnetic therapy products claim to be the best in the market. If they were, why are they hiding what type of magnet is being used or the penetration of the magnet? Why are they using far less magnets in their product? Answer: Lack of knowledge and cost.
Serenity2000 offers quality products with the most magnets as well as a description of what magnet material is used, polarity, number of magnets, surface gauss (Strength of magnet) etc.
The four most common types magnetic material used in magnet therapy products are:
a) FLEXIBLE MAGNETIC RUBBER
d) SAMARIUM COBALT
Explaining PolarityEvery magnet has a north and a south pole. In bio-magnetic terms the side of the magnet attracted to the earth’s South Pole is designated as the North Pole of the magnet. The side of the magnet attracted to the earth’s North Pole is the South Pole of the magnet.
In North America reputable magnetic products are either North Pole or Bi-Polar. When a magnetic product is called North Pole it means that all the magnets in the product are placed so that the North Pole contacts the body. When a magnetic product is called Bipolar it means that the magnets are arranged so that both North and South Poles contact the body.The polarities are said to have the following effect:
North Pole: Calming, relaxing effect
South Pole: Stimulating, activating effect
