Results showed that wearing the ARK crystal, also known as PGQMEM (Precision Geometric Quartz modulated electromagnetically) for 21 days significantly increases performance in every test conducted for strength, balance, and endurance. Furthermore, the active crystal produced improved changes in all tests compared to placebo controls, indicating the ability of the PGQMEM crystal to increase human athletic performance.

Research was conducted by Lisa Tully, PhD, owner of Energy Medicine Research Institute and Ryan Shilling, owner of Watts Up, a company that specializes in athletic training. Subjects were evaluated at 0, 21 and 42 day time points, after wearing the placebo and active crystal pendants for 3 weeks each. Several athletic tests were conducted to assess flexibility, balance, strength and endurance, ARK Crystal said in a press release.

Key Findings of the Study Were:

  • Increased Processing Speed: The group wearing PGQMEM showed 9.8% increase in processing speed. The placebo group showed no change.
  • Increased Psychomotor Speed: Both PGQMEM and placebo group showed significant increases in psychomotor speed. The participants in the PGQMEM group showed an increase of 15.2% in their psychomotor speed.
  • Psychoemotional State (PES): The participants in the PGQMEM group had a 19.6% increase in Psychoemotional State (PES) – a measurement of the capacity of the brain / body to handle stress.

The results of this pilot study demonstrate that the PGQMEM produced a significant improvement in several of the assessed HRV and cognition measures. While placebo testing showed a slight increase over baseline, when the PGG placebo produced an effect, the PGQMEM outperformed the PGG placebo. A larger population of subjects is recommended to establish the effects on the addressed values. Finally, it is likely that the PGQMEM will produce greater or sustained effects when worn for longer periods, the press release said.

“Although the absolute changes seem small for some of these tests, they are in fact significant,” said William Brown, Biophysicist at Torus Tech LLC. “When one takes into account the importance of the results from the stretch and reach test, in which the mean value of the change from baseline was 0.9 inches, which is a substantial change in flexibility.”
