Brand: SABONA OF LONDON
Looking for an interesting design? The Copper Barb Magnetic Bracelet is just that and with a western flair! Each tip has an 1800 gauss samarium cobalt magnet. Sabona chooses Samarium Cobalt magnets for long term durability and rust resistant qualities.
Sabona Copper Wristbands are made with the purest copper available-99.99%. All styles are designed for comfort and manufactured to maintain shape and quality appearance.
To get the best fit, subtract 1/2" to 3/4" from your wrist size to determine the size Sabona Copper Wristband you need.
Sizes are Small (5.5"), Medium (6.0"), Large (6.5") or Extra Large (7.0").
Wristbands are to be snug, but not tight. If you are in between sizes, it works better for the band to be smaller rather than larger.
Copper, when in contact with the skin, form chelates with human sweat (sometimes seen as a green deposit under the bracelet) and is thus absorbed through the skin. It can be removed with soap and water or lemon juice.
To clean your Sabona bracelet, use a good jewelry cleaning cloth to keep the outside polished and the inside clean.
Your Sabona magnetic bracelet comes packaged in a presentable black jewel box.
THE CASE FOR COPPER
Sometimes longevity confers respect along with age. Artifacts that were rarely noticed in their day take on a new meaning and values as they persist throughout time. Such is the case with the copper bracelet, which for decades has been worn for arthritis relief and remains popular today.
Studies have shown that some people with arthritis seem to have difficulty metabolizing copper from the food they eat, leading to increased pain. That observation led Helmar Dollwet, Ph.D., of the University of Akron to theorize that arthritis sufferers may need to get their copper from another source. "The dissolved copper from a copper bracelet bypasses the oral route by entering the body through the the skin," he wrote in his book, The Copper Bracelet and Arthritis. Dr. Dollwet thought this might be the only way arthritics ever receive the copper their bodies need-copper that studies have shown can indeed relieve pain.
Physicians remain somewhat skeptical about bracelets but don't entirely dismiss them, either. "I see people wearing copper bracelets, and they're wearing them because it helps them," says Elson Haas, M.D. "I think copper may have a role. It's possible that a copper deficiency does increase joint inflammation, and it doesn't seem that supplementing copper in the diet has the same effect as wearing it."
