Sportsy Semi-Druggy Question

If Phiten titanium necklaces favored by today's major leage baseball contestants are not a complete fraud --

that is, if, in the words of Phiten's website:

they "work with your body’s energy system, helping to regulate and balance the flow of energy throughout your body"; and that

"[p]roper energy balance helps to alleviate discomfort, speed recovery, and counteract fatigue. Athletes find that they tire less easily and recover faster from intense physical activity"; and that

"[f]urther benefits of Phiten’s exclusive technology are more relaxed muscles leading to less stress and a greater range of motion that can be of great benefit to an athlete"; because, as everyone knows,

"[t]itanium emits energy that is effective in controlling the flow of bioelectric current. When this current is stabilized, the muscles relax and blood circulation increases, allowing for easier movement and pain relief. All Phiten® products help relieve pain in muscles and joints by improving the alignment of ions, especially at the body's crucial motor points" --

then shouldn't they be treated as an illegal performance-enhancing substance?  


That is, of course, if they're not a complete fraud.
