Scientific Facts and Frequently Asked Questions
What is in Liquid Oxygen drops?
The components in Liquid Oxygen are distilled water, sodium chloride, dissolved oxygen and essential and trace minerals.
The proprietary manufacturing procedure of our products is able to increase the amount of concentrated oxygen while regulating the pH balance between 7 to 7.5, making the solution both more concentrated and safer for the consumer to use.
These two facts alone (oxygen content and pH) set Liquid Oxygen Drops from the competition as the finest and safest of all liquid oxygen supplements.
How much do I take?
If you are taking it sublingually (directly under the tongue), about 1/3 dropper is sufficient. Note, when taking liquid oxygen in this manner, it goes immediately into your system and is especially effective in helping to combat headaches, hangovers and boosting your energy quickly. It may taste a bit salty but not terrible.
When adding to your water, put a minimum of 10 drops to every 8 oz. Do not worry about taking too much, your body will simply "eliminate" any additional oxygen that it can not store. Remember your family, friends and pets too. Use liquid oxygen drops everyday and share with everyone.
There are no contraindications or adverse effects if you take too much. You may experience an acceleration of energy which will gradually dissipate. Taking the drops to close to bedtime may keep some people awake.
How do Liquid Oxygen drops get into the body?
There appears to be ample supportive scientific evidence that dissolved oxygen in a liquid supplement form can be absorbed either sublingually (directly under the tongue) into the blood stream or may pass directly through the stomach lining into the blood plasma.
Research has clearly shown that the blood plasma contains approximately 3% dissolved oxygen; the red blood cells (hemoglobin) hold the remaining 97% in a completely healthy and well-oxygenated individual. Oxygen passes out of the red blood cells and into the plasma to be transferred to the cells that need oxygen for the metabolic process. These cells then pass CO2 back into the plasma that is picked up by the red blood cells in the exchange. Oxygen is almost always present in the plasma as it travels though the body.
Research conducted on Liquid Oxygen indicates that there is a direct and long-lasting correlation between the consumption of Liquid Oxygen and an increased partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood.
Another clinical study proved the actual mechanisms by which oxygen is transported in the blood directly to the tissues and how oxygen is released and acquired by the blood through both the lungs and the plasma. The combination of these two studies implies that Liquid Oxygen, when taken orally, is absorbed into the blood stream where it is transported directly to the tissues.
Can I take Liquid Oxygen with other vitamins and supplements?
We do know that when Liquid Oxygen is taken with food that some of the bio-available oxygen may be consumed (utilized) in oxidizing the food instead of being absorbed into the blood stream. How much? We have no data at this time to answer this question more specifically. A great deal depends on how much food and what type of food is consumed with Liquid Oxygen.
Liquid Oxygen should be taken before other nutritional supplements to assist with maximum absorption.
We recommend taking Liquid Oxygen on an empty stomach 30 minutes before eating.
How much sodium and chloride is in the drops?
If you take Liquid Oxygen 3 times per day this would equate to approximately 5mg of sodium. A bowl of non-sugar cereal has over 300mg of sodium.
Why is pH important when buying any kind of oxygen drops?
”pH” is a measurement of a solution's alkalinity or acidity. It is measured on a 14 point scale with “1” representing the most caustic acidic solution and “14” representing the most caustic alkaline solution. Water is considered “neutral” and falls at the mid-point or “7” on the pH scale.
Acids are compounds like citric acid (from fruits like lemons and oranges,) acetic acid (vinegar from grapes or other fruits,) and hydrochloric (stomach acid). Alkaline solutions include laundry bleach (sodium hypochlorite) and sodium hydroxide. At the extremes of each of the pH range are substances that are extremely dangerous and have substantial “oxidizing” potential.
"Oxidation" is a term that refers to an atom's or molecule's ability to bond with other substances and in the process borrow or permanently take away electrons forming a new molecule and compound. Atoms of chlorine, fluorine, bromine, and iodine can be more dangerous and more reactive oxidizing agents than oxygen.
Liquid Oxygen is very slightly alkaline at a pH of about 7. This is a perfect pH for internal and external use. All other oxygen supplements should be considered highly toxic and/or caustic because their pH values are normally in excess of 10.0 making them very alkaline. Almost all other oxygen supplements sold today are based on oxychlorine compounds (molecules containing chlorine and oxygen usually forming chlorite/chlorine dioxide or chlorate). Liquid Oxygen contains no sodium chlorite.
Oxychlorine substances, as well as high levels of sodium, result in a high pH value. Since the actual active ingredients in Liquid Oxygen are dissolved oxygen moleules and a very low sodium concentration, Liquid Oxygen is a more neutrally balanced solution.
In order for the body to neutralize the high pH concentrations of chlorite found in other products, the body is required to manufacture and release higher concentrations of hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach. Current theory holds that the HCl reacts with the chlorite ion to create a chlorine (Cl) and diatomic oxygen molecules (O2). It is only when this reaction occurs that the O2 can be theoretically absorbed into the blood stream, primarily through the stomach lining. However, it should be pointed out that there is no research that indicates that this process actually takes place.
A number of physiological dangers are possible when significant amounts of chlorite are present. First, if the chlorite has not been adequately diluted in water before being consumed, chlorite molecules can damage (burn or “oxidize”) sensitive membranes in the oral and esophageal cavities. Second, undiluted or improperly diluted chlorite can burn or damage the lining of the stomach before the stomach has a chance to begin the neutralization process. Third, individuals who have problems secreting sufficient amounts of HCl may find that they may have irritated or damaged the lining of thestomach. Fourth, the high pH concentration of the chlorites may cause the stomach to overproduce HCl in an attempt to neutralize the substance causing an irritation to the stomach. Prolonged usage of chlorite-based supplements may severely damage the stomach lining.
Almost every stabilized oxygen manufacturer warns the consumer to thoroughly mix and dilute these products in water before taking the products internally. Most also warn that their products should never be used topically. This is because of high pH skin toxicity.
Liquid Oxygen may be taken internally in its concentrated or diluted form and may also be used topically if desired. Liquid Oxygen is the only oxygen supplement that can be used in this manner.
