You might have wondered already why a good number of professional golfers today can be seen wearing some type of bracelet. Here in this post I want to let you know what this is about.
Those bracelets are not simply fashion accessories.
In fact it wouldn’t make much sense if golfers would play wearing traditional jewellery since normal jewellery may obviously hinder them while playing without providing any obvious advantage.
Those bracelets you see worn by many of today’s top golfers are ionic bracelets or magnetic bracelets, so called golf bracelets. What is this all about?
In recent years, scientific studies had been conducted that found that magnetic jewellery and their ionic brothers and sisters can provide real benefits for our health. Magnetic bands, for instance, have found to be effective in relieving or even preventing joint and muscle mains.
Ionic golf bracelets, also called ionic power bands have also been found beneficial with their ability to create many thousands of negative ions per second. They have been observed being able to increase focus and energy levels.
It is for those above reasons that many athletes, golfers in particular today wear such bracelets. They can help to prevent wrist pains but can also be beneficial for improving your game and golf swing by improving focus and energy.
Common Golf Bracelet Types
The most common golf bracelet available today is the negative ion bracelet, also called power band. Those are normally arm bands made from stretchy silicone. The ability to produce negative ions comes from the fact that crushed turmaline is mixed into the material for the armband. Turmaline is a natural gem stone that is known to produce negative ions. In addition, those bands are very light, water proof and cannot slide or fall off.
Other types of gold bracelet combine the ability to produce negative ions with the benefits of magnetic bands. Those bands have magnets as well which means they are ionic and magnetic at the same time. With such a combined golf band you’re getting the best of the two worlds. I recommend those types of bands to anyone who is serious about golf.
