Do Magnets Improve Athletic Performance?

Athletic Magnetic Bracelet

In his book Healing With Magnets, Dr. Null points out that magnets have been used for a long time to help horses heal and to improve performance with race horses. More recently professional athletes have been checking out the benefits of magnets for recovery and to improve their performance.

According to Dr. Null’s book, Russians may have been the first to adapt magnetic therapy for improved athletics. Since then, the use of magnets has spread and many professional athletes use them. There are a few mentioned the book but since I don’t have their permission to use their names, I won’t. There are also several athletes who use Nikken’s magnets and have become distributors. Again, since I don’t have their permission I won’t use their names.

One name that I can mention is Shannon Miller, one of the American stars in Gymnastics from the 1996 Olympics. She is the most decorated American gymnast in history and her name was attached to a previous version of Nikken’s magnetic bracelets.

The reason that magnets help with sports isn’t entirely known. It is thought that they may help to warm the muscles and joints allowing for better performance. Magnets may also increase bloodflow to the muscles, providing more oxygen to the cells for more strength.

As always, a disclaimer. I am an independent Nikken distributor and do not speak for Nikken. I am not a doctor and do not diagnose illness nor do I prescribe magnets for any particular condition. The results that one person has with magnets may not be the same for everyone else.

    I currently use the magnetic bracelet to help with minor arthritis in my hands. I typically wear it on my right hand since my watch is on my left. Last night my right hand was hurting a lot so I switched wrists and within an hour the pain was gone. I slept with it on my left hand and this morning…no pain.

    • That’s awesome Robert. Thanks for sharing your story. You can definitely use that story on your own website. Just change the word “pain” to “discomfort” so that you stay clear of the whole “medical claim” thing.
