Why not get a spare one for your cactus?

iRenew is an infomercially prescribed piece of junk "energy balancing bracelet that helps bring new, fresh energy into your life"[1] sold mostly through the internet and television.

How does it work?[edit]

Allegedly, "As you wear the bracelet, it will harness natural frequencies that occur in your immediate environment to help tune and rebalance your biofield to a more natural state. iRenew is a leading-edge new solution which dispels negative energy so that consumers can simply bring back stability in their life."[2] Naturally, this is based almost completely on anecdotal evidence rather than scientific research, but it has led to a series of unintentionally hilarious promotional videos showing people too weak to so much as stand up until they wore the bracelet.[3] These are typical examples of the applied kinesiology scam.

iRenew™’s proprietary, nano based BioField Technology™ not only improves the biofields of people but also can positively impact anything biological which includes the biofields of plants and animals as well.[4]


iRenew™’s quantum physicist has over 20 years of human energy research yielding a highly effective, 100% safe, holistic energy balancing technology called BioField Technology™.[4]

Does it really work, though?[edit]

So it definitely works then?

Of course, like all crank products, it's never been tested, nor proven in a laboratory setting, to do anything that it claims to do.[5] Also, it has a long, vast history of complaints from consumers; not only are they complaining that it doesn't work, but that the product is such a scam, that they have to put up with overbilling, slow delivery, etc.[6]
