stylish in appearance and apparently effective
on 4 February 2015
I suffer from osteo-arthritis in my wrists and the base of my thumbs. I have always been somewhat sceptical about copper bracelets etc, but I bought 2 of these about 2 years ago - to give them a try.
The bracelet looks quite stylish when new, but of course, being copper it does darken and tarnish with time. Generally though, unless I am sweating a lot, it does not seem to mark my skin at all. If I have been sweating (I work in various different countries) then the marks wash off easily.
The bracelet itself is easy to clean - a few minutes in a weak bleach solution, or vinegar restores the bright and shiny appearance.
The bracelets certainly seem to help, or reduce the occurrence of discomfort in my thumbs and wrists. I don't know if it is due to the copper, the magnets or what. It could be a placebo effect, although I have never believed that these type of things could make any difference.
They work for me - and if you are a sufferer, the price makes it worth trying one for yourself.
