Last month, my mom bought me a power balance bracelet because she had heard a lot about them. The wrist band is said to improve athletic performance. Over the past month, I have gotten many questions about what the wrist band is and if it works. The opinions of it have been split between the product making a substantial difference or if it is just a sales gimmick. I have put much thought into the subject and decided to do some research on the topic.
"Power Balance is based on the idea of optimizing the body’s natural energy flow, similar to concepts behind many Eastern philosophies. The hologram in Power Balance is designed to resonate with and respond to the natural energy field of the body...Power Balance’s Mylar Holographic Disk (the same substance used to keep static electricity from damaging electrical components) has been imbedded with an electrical frequency that restores your body’s electrical balance, promoting a free exchange of positive and negative ions and align your body’s energy pathways.” -power balance website
