Efficacy of DETOXIC
From medical point of view, toxic substances such as fatty wastes; urine acidic crystal; metallic residues and etc., are produced through the process of metabolism. These toxic substances are normally accumulated in joints and soles, preventing normal blood circulation thus causing various problems such as arthritis; inflammation of joints; skin diseases; skin allergy; high blood pressure and etc., which seriously affect our health. In view of that, we must expel these toxic wastes from our body so as to improve our immune system and self-healing ability. Experiments held in Japan shown that Chilli Patch can extract internal dampness and expel harmful (toxic) wastes from our body. With the application of this patch, we can enhance our immune system and prevent from these illness.
Efficacy of NEGATIVE ION
Extensive experiments in Japan have proven that Chilli Patch contains numerous negative ions, which can penetrate into the body through skin and acupuncture points. The negative ions can neutralize harmful positive ions in the body, effectively converting the unhealthy acidic blood condition to that of healthy alkaline blood condition, which enhances the ionic mobility of calcium and sodium for our blood cells, and improves the muscle activity of our heart as well. As a result, it greatly promotes healthy blood circulation to enhance our heart functioning and improving our immune system significantly.

I've been using these patches for several years and it has never occurred to me to do a research on this product, I've always presumed that it works, because the patches were always dark and wet when I removed them in the morning.
For the sake of this article I did some googling and found out that several tests were made and all have shown that these pads do not "suck out toxins", used pads were tested against unused ones and the results shows that the same substances were found on both pads, and if you hold it against a boiling pot it'll turn dark.
I got these mainly to get rid of 濕氣 (dampness in your body) which according to chinese medicine it makes you lethargic. Since I still have several boxes of these at home, I'll keep on using them.
I've actually tried the bamboo vinegar foot pads from Mannings as well, and would like to warn you not to get them, because these pads were soaking wet in the morning and my sheets were a mess (sticky and goopy).
