Microhydrin Studies : Reduction of lactic acid
The Exercise Physiology Department of the University of North Texas Health Science Center conducted a double blind, placebo controlled crossover study in 6 male cyclists for blood lactic acid (lactate) clearance during a 40 km bicycle ride at maximum speed. Subjects took Microhydrin two weeks prior to the test and during the test week. They refrained from all other non-prescribed supplements. Blood lactate levels were measured before, and 5 min. after, each exercise session. Microhydrin radically decreased blood lactic acid levels as compared to placebo during strenuous exercise.
Intra and Extra Cellular Hydration
A double blind placebo controlled pilot study was conducted using a RJL Bioelectrical Impedance Analyzer that measures hydration of the body. Seven subjects received 4 capsules of Microhydrin per day and were crossed with seven subjects who received same amount of a placebo. Averaged values showed increased intracellular and extracellular hydration due to the consumption of Microhydrin as compared to the placebo group.
Protection against oxidative stress
A double blind placebo controlled crossover pilot study was conducted on 7 subjects who received 4 capsules/day of Microhydrin for two weeks, and 4 capsules/day of placebo for two weeks. Urine alkenal/creatinine ratios were measured. During Microhydrin supplementation, a 43% increase in free radical protection was observed as compared to placebo.
Production of NADH
ATP production, the principal source of energy in the mitochondria, depends on the production of NADH. Reduced hydrogen, generated by the Kreb´s cycle, is carried by NADH into the mitochondria for the electron transport chain reactions that will ultimately create a molecule of water and ATP. Data from experiments on rat liver cells show enhanced mitochondrial membrane potential and increased NADH. This suggests an enhancement of bioenergetic capacity of the mitochondria when Microhydrin is present.
Scavenging free radicals, report I
Tests on Microhydrin were conducted using electron spin resonance techniques (ESR) by a scientist who specializes in the evaluation of antioxidants at University of California at Berkeley. The following is quoted from the test report: Our conclusions are that Microhydrin has antioxidant activity towards hydroxyl radicals. Hydroxyl radicals are among the most dangerous of oxygen free radicals that occur in biological systems. They are the same types of radicals that can be produced by exposure to ionizing radiation. Therefore, it can be stated that Microhydrin has antioxidant activity in this regard.
Scavenging free radicals, report II
Tests on Microhydrin were conducted by a scientist at a separate major university. The following is quoted from the test report: When assayed in the ‘standard’ assay for super oxide dismutase activity based upon the reduction of cytochrome c by xanthine, Microhydrin showed two characteristics: 1. Microhydrin can directly reduce cytochrome c, showing that it is a reducing agent… 2. Microhydrin can inhibit the superoxide-mediated reduction of cytochrome c, indicating that it can scavenge the superoxide free radical.”
Aging marathon runner improves time
In January 1997, at age 39, Andrey Kusnetzov ran the Brazil Marathon in 2 hr. 17 min. and 52 sec. The following December, he added Microhydrin to his daily supplement regime, taking two capsules with a third capsule opened into his glass of water each morning and again each evening. In January, he ran 2 minutes faster, winning first place in the Masters Division (Age 40+) at the Houston Methodist Marathon. The following April 1998, he continued to improve his time and won the Boston Marathon Masters. One year later, he again won the Boston Marathon Masters, in a faster time of 2h,14m,20s.
Tests on the functions of Microhydrin
Microhydrin is a mineral (silica, potassium, magnesium) formed into extremely small negatively charged colloids (nanocolloids) that have been saturated with hydrogen. The minerals have been found to be in the range of 1-5 microns in size when analyzed with Electron Scanning Micrographs. Its function is to provide literally trillions of hydrogen anions capable of donating electrons into body fluids.
Electrons are abundantly available in organically grown raw vegetables, fruits, and grains, but are deficient in our modern diet and drinking water. Tap water and bottled waters are oxidized, acidic, and do not provide a source of electrons. When consumed, the body must substantially alter their chemical characteristics in order to convert water into optimal extracellular and intracellular body fluids. Three such characteristics are conductivity, oxidation/reduction potential (ORP) and surface tension.
The surface tension of tap water is approximately 73 dynes. The surface tension of extracellular fluids is much lower at approximately 45 dynes. This low surface tension is critical to cellular function, absorption of nutrients, and to the removal of toxins. A 250 mg capsule of Microhydrin dispersed into an 8 oz glass of tap water has been shown to reduce surface tension to approximately 45 dynes, the same surface tension of extracellular fluids.
To measure the level of electrons available in Microhydrin, a 250 mg capsule was dispersed into 8 oz of tap water and into each of twelve 8 oz glasses of different brands of bottled water. The results shown were measured before, and one hour after the addition of Microhydrin:
The pH and Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) were measured in various types of bottled and tap waters. Microhydrin decreases the ORP and increases the pH of water. (Compare results to table above showing other antioxidants.)
- pH 6-6,5
- ORP +250 to +600 mV.
Tap water+250 mg Microhydrin:
- pH 9-10
- ORP -300 to -650 mV.
12 brands of bottled water:
- pH 6,4-8,2
- ORP +60 to +490 mV..
12 brands of bottled water with 250 mg Microhydrin:
- pH 9,2-9,8
- ORP -300 to -650 mV.
