UNDERSTANDING POSSIBLE BENEFITS OF OX-E-DROPS - BASED ON REACTIVE EFFECTIVENESS
WHAT MAKES OX-E-DROPS SO EFFECTIVE?
Lets look at the chemistry involved with NZYMES® Ox-E-Drops . At the pH of the stomach (pH 3-4) one can expect chlorine dioxide (NOT Free Chlorine) to be produced from chlorite ions. This will be a transient phenomenon, ultimately yielding chlorite ions, again, which will be absorbed by the body, passed through the lower gastrointestinal tract, and excreted by the kidneys aiding the body.
DOES THE CHLORITE ION INTERACT WITH ENZYMES?
Yes it does! In fact, another potential mechanism of the NZYMES® Ox-E-Drops involves utilization of chlorite by cells, particularly leukocytes, as a substrate to increase the efficiency of a group of enzymes know as peroxidases. These enzymes are an important component in the immune system since they are involved in the oxidation of foreign material. There are two interesting outcomes of chlorite utilization by these enzymes. The first is that the immune system may be directly enhanced by the increased rate of oxidation of foreign material by the leukocytes.* The second result is an increased ability by all metabolically active cells to scavenge free radicals.* The source of free radicals may be environmental (e.g., UV radiation) or metabolic (e.g., H2O2). Chlorine dioxide environmentally friendly.
