Health Bracelets Reel or for Real

Updated on June 23, 2012

Once a craze is on its full swing expect a lot of people to be on thick of it. Although fashion accessories come and go, people are still upbeat on what is hot as they become a willing buyer and will never hesitate to give it a try with new stuffs that created stir most recently.

And if the stuffs have some healthful benefits expect the product to garner following and boom, great sales will inevitably pours in. Remember that promise plus proofs will surely equate to profits, and as far as the health bracelets are concerned, burden of proofs should be dish out in order to give the buying public what they deserved with the money they used to procure these stuffs that are advertised to have some health properties.

The so-called health bracelets are now invading Philippines and other parts of the world. Believed to possess electromagnetic field the bracelets may provide the balance one needs that foster a holistic lifestyle. Considered a lucky charm for many, the wristband which is touted to have titanium (a rare metal), is also believed to improve the circulation of blood in the body and offers other medicinal benefits.

But according to some studies and testing, the wristbands emit neither an electric field nor a magnetic field. The bracelets aren’t endorsed by health organizations or group of concerned citizens. The wristband which was worn even by Antonio Margarito on his fight against Manny Pacquiao, haven't pass any tests yet that is administered by medical experts and scientists. Hence, the bracelets' health benefits are not yet proven.

Parting words...

The health bracelets may give the buyers the placebo effect, wherein any purchased items may have a favorable psychological effect if it is purchased at a steep price or perhaps just swayed since people believe that the accessory have good effects.

But still many buy these stuffs since they are trendy and nice to look at, comfy and they believe that the health bracelets are giving them the health boosts they need and the security blanket..

Aside from health wristbands there are other health accessories that are sold in the market. Also seen wearing these health accessories aside from Antonio Margarito are football superstar David Beckham and behemoth Shaquille O'Neal.
