In scientific nomenclature, rudraksha are referred to as Elaeocarpus Ganitrus. Rudra-Aksha means eye of Shiva. According to Hindu mythology, those who wear Rudraksha are under the protection of the watchful eyes of Lord Shiva. Rudraksha, unlike other forms of healing objects gives effect only if sanctified using Beeja mantras or Panchakshar mantra and Unless blessed by the God that the Rudraksha represents, it will not show the full effects. Therefore, spiritual significance of Rudraksha should never be undermined.
Rudrakshas also have powerful Electromagnetic properties in controlling stress, blood pressure, and improving blood circulation. Rudraksha Beads have many powerful properties in transforming ones personality and outlook in a positive way. Its a proven fact now that Rudrakshas possess powerful electromagnetic, paramagnetic and inductive properties and thus on wearing these rudrakshas specific electrical impulses are sent to brain stimulating certain positive centers thereby causing transformation in the personality, outlook, charisma and confidence of the wearer.
