The Earth is like a gigantic battery that contains a natural, subtle electric charge—a special kind of energy present in the ground. For safety and stability, most everything in the electrical world is connected to it, whether it is an electric power plant or your refrigerator. That’s what the term “grounded” means.
You are a bioelectrical being living on an electrical planet. Your body operates electrically. All of your cells transmit multiple frequencies that run, for example, your heart, immune system, muscles, and nervous system.
With the exception of humans living in industrialized societies, all living things on our planet are connected to the ground’s electric energy. In industrialized societies, you rarely go barefoot outside or wear natural leather shoes that allow you to absorb the ground’s energy. For many decades, people have increasingly been wearing rubber and plastic-soled shoes that act as a barrier to the Earth’s energy, insulating them from electrical contact with the Earth. People also generally don’t sleep on the ground anymore, as many cultures have done throughout history. They live and work above the ground, even far above the ground in high-rises.
Scientific research over more than a decade indicates that your body can be protected and helped—and that you feel better—when you electrically reconnect to the Earth. That is when you are grounded. Here are three examples of potential benefits that have been reported in these studies:
1. Decreased Levels of Inflammation and Pain
Being grounded can help relieve inflammation. Studies show the following:
30 percent reduction in pain 70 percent reduction in pain interfering with sleep 30 percent reduction in morning stiffness and soreness
After 4 weeks: 80 percent reduction in pain 70 percent reduction in morning stiffness and soreness No sleep interference
2. Reduced Stress Levels
When grounded, the diurnal rhythm of the stress hormone, cortisol, begins to normalize. Cortisol is connected to your body’s stress response and helps control blood sugar levels, regulates metabolism, helps reduce inflammation, and assists with memory formulation. In addition to a normalization of the cortisol rhythm, participants in this study also slept better and woke up feeling more refreshed.
3. Improved Circulation
When you are grounded, your circulation improves, aiding in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues in your body, including better blood flow to your face.
Ideally, you want to sustain the grounding experience and make it a part of your daily routine.
For many people, however, there isn’t time in their busy days to go out barefoot. So, there are also indoor options such as this grounded bed sheet. There are other alternatives such as grounded chairs, mats, body bands, or patches, but we find that the best time to ground is while you sleep. It is the one time of day that you are still for 5-8 hours, also a time that your body uses to repair itself, so naturally we opted to help sell the grounded bedsheets which we individually test for the highest quality and deliver to you. Everyone who has started this journey with us has experienced many of the benefits above. Whatever route you take, get grounded and feel vibrant.

Washing and care instructions It is good to wash your Get Grounded product. It will not be harmed by washing, in fact, it is beneficial. Washing strips body sweat and natural skin oils from the silver keeping it conductive.
DOs Wash every week or two Wash in a washing machine with cold or warm water Use a liquid laundry detergent Line dry or dry in a dryer on low (up to 65°C / 150°F) Can be ironed on low heat if desired
DON'Ts Don't wash with bleach Don't wash with fabric softeners Don't use whitening detergents, oxi-detergents OR detergents with oils like lavender or coconut oil Don't use dryer sheet fabric softeners Don't dry clean
Bleach, lotions, and oils can tarnish the silver rendering it non-conductive. Fabric softener builds up on the silver and also ruins its conductive properties.
It is advised to wait one hour to use the product after applying lotion to the skin.
All products are tested for best quality and 100% conductivity before it is shipped to you.
