does it really work?

Description: To help reduce weight! No side effects! This item has one of the highest volumes of sales in Japan. Able to be used repeatedly without any negative effects. The 2 magnets emit 1,100 Gauss's magnetic force to stimulate the acupuncture points which activates the areas normally not used in walking and improves muscles sagging!

Instructions: Wear it on the big toes everyday. If any discomfort is felt or it causes blueblack,kindly stop using. Wash and clean with water.

the above is what i saw on net , just wondering if anyone had tried those toe rings before ? does it really work ?

    Looks like just another trend. Probably wont work.
    Completely illogical.

    not only does it make people lose weight, but they also cure cancer, prevent global warming, and promote economic growth.

    Well seriously speaking, it's not possible to cause magnetic fields to press certain pressure points. Think about it - a child is of different proportions to an adult - every one is different, therefore it's not possible to hit the same pressure points when they change on every body. It may work like that and work for those average/ popular group of people the rings were designed for BUT-

    Magnets increase and help blood circulation (because it draws the iron around). This could sort of give an effect like you're walking or doing moderate exercise - or at least doing MORE activity than what you're actually doing since you're well, maybe stationary let's say.

    I wear these rings. While they're not really something I'd rely on to lose weight, they're very good at controlling weight - in my case anyway. I mostly wear it because I sit down a lot since I need to do a lot of drawing, and my legs get numb. In fact you probably know, magnets help if you place them on a sore spot on the body.

    The bottomline is, it's no substitute for exercise.

    Do they work? Yes by circulating blood.
    Do they help weight loss? Probably not because it's too far fetched and it's not clear on the human model they designed it for (I mean, a larger person would need larger magnets, wouldn't that be the case?)

    Stop being lazy ~ people that look for gimmicks are looking for a EASY way.

    A great body only comes from commitment, dedication, application, learning, trial & error, nutrition, cardio+resistance training, and rest.

    I can't take you seriously. People like you are looking for a cup of EPIC FAIL. But... never fear.. did you know..
