    These health wristbands are an incredible breakthrough in improving our health. What a great innovation. I've worn the copper and magnetic bracelets and have seen good results. I'm impressive to see the continual advancements as well as the advantages to wearing these new wristbands.

    I am truly skeptical about any anecdotal health claims about "minerals" in these wrist bands. Sounds like placebo effect to me.

    Copper bracelets, mineral bracelets, shiny trinkets, uranium bracelets -- and NONE have been independently proven to enrich anything but the seller's wallet. This has all come around before.

    "For years, companies in the industry said they had minerals and ions in their products and recently it came out that most companies — unlike LIFESTRENGTH — had no scientific proof or backing, said Taylor."

    UNlike Lifestrength??

    I saw no evidence of "scientific proof or backing" anywhere in the article.

    From the tone of the article what I expected most to find were some words indicating this was an advertisement! No evidence of that either....though there should have been.

    I agree with Caprice of Providence! I am willing to try the wrist bands and the body tape and if I see results, then I am sold! I also tried the magnets from Nikkon and did not expect to receive the results that I am happy to say were fantastic. The only problem with the magnets is their cost. It was rediculously high!

    @Millie Bess

    And what are those benefits?
