Magnetic bracelets can be an effective tool to improve blood flow. The increase in blood circulation delivers more oxygen to the body. This can help to speed up healing of damaged tissue. In one animal study, it was observed that blood vessels dilated in the presence of magnetic field. The study also revealed the anti-inflammatory effects of magnets. Thus, the magnetic effect not only helped to boost blood circulation but also decreased the swelling. Although, these beneficial effects of magnets are yet to be proved in human trials, there is hope that further research may soon report the positive impact of magnets on humans. Inadequate blood circulation has been responsible for causing a number of ailments including migraine headaches and varicose veins. The increased blood circulation may also provide relief from back pain.

The study focused on 194 patients, aged 45 to 80, who had osteoarthritis of the hip or knee.
The group were either given a standard strength magnetic bracelet, a weak magnetic bracelet or a non-magnetic, dummy bracelet.
The researchers, from the Peninsula Medical School in Plymouth, found pain was significantly reduced in the patients wearing the standard magnetic bracelet compared to the dummy one.
There was little difference between the weak magnet group and those wearing the dummy magnets after 12 weeks of the study.
The team said their findings suggested that the benefit of magnetic bracelets was clinically useful, but higher strength magnets seemed to be needed.
The researchers, writing in the British Medical Journal, concluded:
“Pain from osteoarthritis of the hip and knee decreases when wearing magnetic bracelets.”
