Power Balance's bands have been selling like hotcakes. First we saw an increasing number of celebrities like Shaquille O'Neal, Rubens Barrichello, Trevor Ariza and Cristiano Ronaldo showing them off on their wrists; then, we saw them appear on the arms of "fashion victims."
What exactly are Power Balance bands? According to the manufacturers, these bracelets "increases strength, flexibility and endurance." Apparently, they are for optimizing the natural energy found within the body.
But are Power Balance bands a scam or a miracle cure? Whether or not they work as they claim will be left in the hands--or, the wrists--of the customer.
