Magnetic Bracelets for Rio 2016
Saturday, 13 August 2016
If you're interested in buying magnetic bracelets, what is the first thing you do? Quite likely, it is simply to look on the internet. Right? But when you do a search for the term "magnetic bracelets" in any of the leading search engines, you are greeted by a plethora of sites selling a vast range of magnetic therapy products from which to choose.
However, what is interesting is that the biggest such site in Europe - and the second biggest in the world - only appears at the very bottom of the list. Clearly, that is not much help if you are suffering from arthritis or looking for something to protect you from sports injury.
This is more to do with the way search engines work and there is pretty much nothing you can do about, except scan down the page to make sure that you are finding the best site. Unlike sport - or rather exactly like sport - coming first doesn't necessarily mean that they are the best. In fact, this analogy is very apt, because, for the last few decades, the Olympic games and other sports have been plagued by the scourge of cheating, in the form of athletes using anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.
In the same way, some online retailers are able to bump up their search results by all manner of illicit means. These means go by the name "black hat" and they are to the online world what steroids (and bribery/gambling rackets) are to sport. And the analogy goes even further, because, in the face of these almost insurmountable problems, there is a grave temptation to embrace the philosophy known as: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
However, I myself do not espouse this particular view. I would rather be the last man standing in the realm of honesty (perhaps that should be the first man falling!) that embrace the dishonest approach of those whom I despise.
But if you are interested in taking up sport and inspired by the current spectacular of Rio 2016 - and let's face it, the Olympics always inspire us couch potatoes to take up sport - then you'll find that Magnetic Products Store has a fine collection of sports wrisbands and bracelets for men and women.
This includes the excellent ionTopia Range that has set the magnetic therapy world buzzing with its wonderfully diverse range of magnetic bracelets, bangles and wrist bands with powerful sets of magnets (3000 Gauss).
Just take a look at these and you'll see what I mean:
