Indoor Air Pollution - among the top five environmental health risks says the EPA

Admin

NIKKEN is a total wellness company – the only total wellness company.  This means we have products that contribute to the body’s wellness in everything from supplements for nutrition to magnets for reduction of discomfort to filters for healthier water and air.  There is no other company like NIKKEN! 

We all know the body needs certain nutrients to thrive.  We also know that by using our amazing magnetic technology and the far-infrared and negative ion technology we can reduce discomfort and aid the body’s natural healing tendencies.  Most of us have even felt the energizing and helpful qualities of NIKKEN’s PiMag water but one of the most overlooked of NIKKEN’s products is the KenkoAir Purifier™.

On May 25th 2015, a study was published by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology stating that “air purification is significantly associated with decreases in geometric means of several circulating inflammatory and thrombogenic biomarkers, as well as a decreases in systolic blood pressure (BP), diastolic BP.”(1)  Translation – an air purifier can help with a risk of coronary artery disease and help to lower blood pressure – both top and bottom numbers.

NIKKEN’s ULPA filtration system is unparalleled. It “combines multistage filtration (including a state-of-the-art ULPA filter), negative-ion generation and a unique system that operates without producing ozone, a toxic gas that is an unfortunate byproduct of other air systems.” (2)  ULPA filters are a higher grade of air filtration than the commonly used HEPA filters. 

“High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) = 99.97% of particles 0.3 micrometers or greater are removed by the air filter.

Ultra Low Penetration Air (ULPA) = 99.999% of particles 0.12 micrometers or greater are removed by the air filter.” (3)

On June 5th of this year – 2015, the NY Times published an article called “Even Low-Level Air Pollution May Cause Harm”.  The article sites a study by researchers in which the death rate in New England residents over 65 was tracked in conjunction to daily air pollution.  The study showed a correlation between a slight increase “10 micrograms per cubic meter” of air pollution and the death rate which rose 2.14 percent.  (4)

The EPA has posted numerous information about indoor air quality in an effort to educate the public including a statement that says “Indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks.”  It also goes on to recommend “adequate ventilation with clean outdoor air …. but if there are undesirable levels of contaminants contained in outdoor air….. an air cleaning device may be useful.” (5)

Air filtration is not just for asthmatics or those with severe allergies.  As our outdoor air pollution grows worse and we learn more about the hazards of indoor air pollution, air filtration systems like NIKKEN’s KenkoAir Purifier are an integral part of your wellness home.
