Scientific Facts and Frequently Asked Questions

What is in Liquid Oxygen drops?

The chemical components in Liquid Oxygen are distilled water, sodium chloride, dissolved oxygen and essential and trace minerals. The species of oxygen found in Liquid Oxygen formualtions include various molecular compostitions. The active ingredient in Liquid Oxygen is a relatively stable nascent molecules of oxygen. All other oxygen type supplements bond their active oxygen to salt molecules forming oxychlorine or oxy-halogen compounds driving up the pH to levels that could be dangerous to the skin and delicate membranes in the oral cavity if taken improperly. In addition, additional stomach acid activity is required to break these molecules down to release the oxygen.

As a result of our proprietary manufacturing process, Liquid Oxygen is able to significantly increase the amount of active oxygen while significantly decreasing the pH, making the solution both more concentrated and safer for the consumer to use.

These two facts alone (oxygen content and pH) distinguish Liquid Oxygen from the competition and set Liquid Oxygen apart as the premier and safest of all liquid stabilized oxygen supplements and additives.

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 or juice, 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 (Dr. Arthur Guyton, M.D.) 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.

A Duke University study, completed in 1996, indicates clearly, for the first time, 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 may be taken with other nutritional supplements. In fact, it may be safe to assume that Liquid Oxygen drops may even increase the efficacy of such supplements. Since absorption and assimilation of nutrients at a cellular level requires energy, and since energy production is directly related to the availability and utilization of oxygen, it stands to reason that Liquid Oxygen may positively affect this process.

We recommend that Liquid Oxygen be taken on an empty stomach, preferably 30 minutes before eating and 2 hours after eating to get the greatest physiological benefits from the product.

Liquid Oxygen works hand-in-hand with all other nutrients, including amino acids, minerals and vitamins. These all require oxygen to be assimilated into the body and oxygen to become integrally involved in the metabolic processes. The higher the oxygen saturation level in the blood and tissues, the more efficient and effective the metabolic processes will be as these processes utilize other nutritional ingredients.

Does Liquid Oxygen contain more oxygen than bottled water?

While Liquid Oxygen does have as its primary active ingredients dissolved oxygen molecules in water, these molecules are not "forced" into our solution under pressure nor bubbled through the solution to enhance absorption. Rather, the O2 molecules in Liquid Oxygen are "created" from the actual solution itself and are stabilized using our proprietary techniques. The oxygen molecules in our solution are not dissolved in our aqueous solution in the traditional sense. This is why we are able to stabilize our oxygen concentrate, something no other company has been able to accomplish.

Regular drinking water contains around 7PPM of Oxygen. When Liquid Oxygen is added it increases the oxygen content up to 8,000 PPM.

It is extremely integral to point out that our Liquid Oxygen solution differs greatly from ALL OTHER oxygen liquid supplements because Liquid Oxygen is based on dissolved oxygen not on oxychlorine or other oxygen-based compounds.

How stable is Liquid Oxygen?

A tremendous amount of research has been done on the physiological benefits of the different species of oxygen in the body. O1 (singlet or molecular oxygen) is the most highly oxidative and unstable of all the oxygen species. If used improperly, machines that produce O1 can oxidize and actually permanently "burn" the delicate tissues of the lungs. We do not recommend any therapies that utilize the use of O1 atoms.

O2 is certainly the most universally recognized of the stable oxygen species. It is the basis of all life and is found in the air we breathe and the water we drink. O3 (ozone) is also unstable, but its half-life is considerably longer than that of its sibling O1. (O3 is estimated at having a 22-minute half-life in water.) O3 is also very reactive (oxidative) and has been successfully used in numerous therapy protocols. All three species can and do oxidize (destroy) pathogens.

Our Liquid Oxygen formulations are highly concentrated and are considerably less unstable than solutions containing diatomic oxygen (O2) and ozone (O3). Preliminary research indicates a stability factor more than four times that of dissolved O2. The shelf life of Liquid Oxygen is three years.

How much sodium and chloride is in the drops?

One daily recommended dose of Liquid Oxygen (30 drops), taken in three doses of 10 drops in 8 ounces of water each day, would contain less than 5 mg of sodium – and sodium is the big culprit in increasing blood pressure. That's why patients with high blood pressure have to watch and monitor their sodium intake. 5 mg is an insignificant amount of sodium. By comparison, one bowl of a popular rice cereal contains over 300 mg of sodium.

What about free radicals?

The scientific literature clearly indicates that most free radicals are formed as a natural part of the body's normal metabolic activity in producing the energy the body needs to "exist" and sustain itself. Breathing is the major source (contributor) of free radicals, yet without breathing, the body dies.

Almost all free radicals produced during the energy-production cycle are reduced to water. Some are used to fight against invading bacteria and viruses. Some, the result of contaminates like smoke, pollution, alcohol, ozone, radiation and highly processed foods, are very damaging to the body.

Natural nutrient antioxidants (vitamins, amino acids and minerals) occurring in the foods we eat are designed to control the production of these deleterious free radicals. It is important to remember that the research clearly shows that diatomic oxygen (O2) is essential for a healthy body and that an abundant supply of oxygen helps reduce free radical activity, not increase it!

How much oxygen can be dissolved in water?

First let's take a quick look at how nascent oxygen in the form of O2 reacts with water. Water will only absorb a maximum of 20 ppm of free oxygen molecules in gas form (O2) when such molecules are bubbled through the solution. This is a chemically verified fact.

When water is subjected to additional atmospheric pressure, the amount of dissolved O2 may increase. However, when the pressure is reduced back to its normal atmospheric range, the gas will escape as O2 and the dissolved oxygen content will stabilize at a "normal" dissolved oxygen range of from 4-20 ppm.

Temperature can also affect the ability of water to maintain a high level of dissolved oxygen molecules. As water reaches the boiling point, the O2 molecules will be forced out as O2 in its gaseous state. At the lower temperatures, below freezing, the oxygen molecules may be trapped inside the ice crystals that form. Nevertheless, the maximum amount of dissolved oxygen is strictly related to water's ability to maintain no more than approximately 20 ppm of O2 at normal temperatures at normal atmospheric pressure.

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 (vinegars 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.

What is sodium chlorite?

Sodium chlorite (NaClO2), the traditional ingredient in almost all oxygen supplementation today, is considered a non-toxic substance approved by the F.D.A. as a bleaching agent for modified food starch under 21 C.F.R. 172.892 with very rigid and very specific guidelines for its use. It is not recognized nor approved as a dietary supplement. The F.D.A. has established a sodium chlorite level of .5% (or 5,000 ppm) as the maximum allowed for human consumption in food products. Liquid Oxygen contains NO CHLORITE MOLECULES.

What is the effect of effect of activated oxygen on microorganisms?

Liquid Oxygen has been clearly shown to have extensive anti-microbial properties in direct proportion to concentration and time. Liquid Oxygen appears to inhibit the growth or to reduce the colony count of the following general categories of anaerobic (non-air tolerant) organisms: bacteria, virus, yeasts, molds, fungi and parasites.

There are both beneficial aerobic and detrimental anaerobic bacteria in the body. For example, the "good" E. Coli exists in both an anaerobic and aerobic states. But these beneficial intestinal floras have sufficient safeguards in their cellular structures to protect themselves in oxygen environments.

All pathogenic microbes give up electrons and die when introduced to oxygen-rich environments. This has to do with the cellular structure of these organisms. In the body, invading pathogens are normally attacked by specialized white blood cells (neutrophils and macrophages). These cells – forming a critical part of the immune system – attack the surface of the bacteria in a process called opsonization or phagocytosis.

During this process the microbes are surrounded by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) formed within the white blood cells from oxygen and water. The H2O2 breaks down as it reacts with the bacteria's cellular structure into water H2O and O1 and the oxygen atom begins oxidizing the cell's membrane (stealing electrons). This is the primary "line of defense" used by the immune system.

These specialized cells manufacture the H2O2 from water and oxygen available in the blood stream. A lack of sufficient oxygen in the blood stream reduces the body's first line of defense. This has been clearly established in the medical literature. Activated Oxygen safely increases the available oxygen levels of the blood stream.

The chlorite concentrations for all other competitive stabilized oxygen products exceed the F.D.A.'s established limits. This does not infer that these higher concentrations of sodium chlorite are toxic or unsafe. It does mean however that these concentrations exceed the approved F.D.A. limits and as such may be in violation of F.D.A. regulations under 21 C.F.R. 172.892.

The FDA considers chlorine dioxide a regulated substance. It is approved as a modified food-bleaching agent, primarily for flour. It is not approved, nor is it recommended, for human consumption as a dietary supplement. The E.P.A. has not approved chlorine dioxide as a disinfecting agent for water for consumer use. The use of chlorine dioxide (chlorite) for either of these applications (water purification and nutritional supplementation) is clearly unapproved and not recommended by the appropriate U.S. federal regulating agencies.

Independent studies of Liquid Oxygen by numerous labs indicates that no substances with levels high enough to indicate toxicity to human beings exists in Liquid Oxygen. Toxic metals, including lead, mercury and arsenic, are undetectable. Nitrate levels and other trace minerals are also undetectable by all normal testing standards. The current formulation of Liquid Oxygen has been found to be "...totally safe to the human body."

What are oxychlorine compounds?

Virtually all traditional oxygen supplements and oxygen additives use oxychlorine or hypo-chloride com-pounds (salts of oxygen) to stabilize (bind) the oxygen molecules together. These compounds usually include high concentrations of chlorite (chlorine dioxide/ClO2) as well as chlorate (ClO3).

There is little evidence that indicates that chlorite and chlorate may indeed release oxygen in its nascent form as O2 into the body as these ions are theoretically broken down into O2 during the digestive process by hydrochloric acid (HCl) in the stomach. This theory has not been scientifically proven.

Unlike the traditional approaches to oxygen supplementation, Liquid Oxygen is based on the dissolved molecular oxygen (as O2) formulation instead of salts of oxygen formulations. Our proprietary manufacturing processes create molecules rather than bonding oxygen molecules to various salts. This process is a completely unique and a totally different approach to creating a safe yet effective Activated Oxygen supplement than all other oxygen supplements on the market today.
