WHAT IS STABILIZED OXYGEN?
The current literature explains that supplements (nutritional products) made of stabilized oxygen can be either dissolved molecules of oxygen, (in various molecular configurations including O1, O2, O3, O4, etc.,) and/or bio-available oxygen molecules electrically bound to numerous non-toxic salts, (including magnesium, potassium, sodium, etc.,) provided such molecular bonds are easily weakened by the body such that the oxygen molecules may be made available for the body to absorb into the blood stream. The literature further explains that such stabilized oxygen may be in both liquid and/or dry form provided that in such dry form the oxygen molecules may be easily and readily made available to the body.

IS THERE AN ADVANTAGE OF ONE FORM OF STABILIZED OXYGEN OVER ANOTHER?
Many oxygen supplements use oxychlorine or hypo-chloride compounds (salts of oxygen) to stabilize (bind) the oxygen molecules. These compounds usually include high concentrations of chlorite/chlorine dioxide (ClO2) as well as chlorate (ClO3). There is evidence to indicate 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.

H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is based on the dissolved molecular oxygen (as O2) formulation instead of salts of oxygen formulations. In the proprietary manufacturing processes, H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen creates stabilized oxygen molecules rather than bonding oxygen molecules to various salts. This process is a completely unique and a totally different approach to creating a stabilized oxygen supplement than all other stabilized oxygen supplements on the market today.

WHY IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FORMULATION OF H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN AND OTHER STABILIZED OXYGEN SUPPLEMENTS THAT IMPORTANT?
The chemical components in H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen are distilled water, sodium chloride, dissolved oxygen and trace minerals. The species of oxygen found in H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen include O2, and O3.

The active ingredient in H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is stabilized nascent molecules of oxygen in the form of O2 and O3. Other liquid oxygen 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 the proprietary manufacturing process, H2O-BOO2ST® 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 H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen from the competition and set H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen apart as the premiere and safest of all liquid oxygen supplements.

HOW IS H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN MADE?
The actual manufacturing process for H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is a carefully guarded secret and is completely proprietary. It is based on over 20 years of research and development. Over $1,000,000 has been spent in developing a method to bind oxygen molecules (primarily O2 and O3) in distilled water while significantly eliminating the sodium chlorite content and maintaining a relatively neutral pH (6.8 - 7.8).

H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is processed and strictly regulated under U.S. F.D.A. and U.S. O.S.H.A. sanitary standards established for the manufacturing of nutrients, supplements and food products for human consumption.

HOW DO WE VERIFY AND TEST FOR THE DISSOLVED OXYGEN CONTENT OF H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN?
The standard method of testing for dissolved oxygen in liquids containing less than 19.99 p.p.m. (parts per million) of dissolved oxygen is by automatic calibration using the conducto-metric oxygen probe method. For solutions containing dissolved oxygen levels higher than 20.0 p.p.m, other methods must be used including colorimiter (DPD Test Tabs) and titration methods.

It should also be noted that the water purification and water quality control industry has influenced the development of numerous testing methods to determine the oxygen (O2) content of water. These various test devices can test for as few as 1 ppm to as many as 20 ppm. No electronic testing device available today will measure O2 concentrations in water in excess of approximately 20 ppm.

The main reason why devices are not available is that most applications for oxygen testing are for the waste water management (sewage) industries. In these applications the amount of available oxygen in waste water or raw sewage is well below the normal 7-20 ppm. Thus, devices need only test in this range. The use of such a device also requires a high concentration of minerals and salts. These components permit the transmission of a consistent electrical current in the solution which is used by the probe to measure the oxygen levels. H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen does not contain these high levels of minerals and salts and so a probe cannot accurately measure the oxygen content of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen.

Each and every batch of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is tested during the manufacturing process to determine exact oxygen content, and each batch is tested before the bottling process begins for oxygen content using the testing methods described herein.

H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen uses 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide as one of its standard for testing. 35% hydrogen peroxide contains 33% dissolved oxygen and 2% hydrogen. The dissolved oxygen equates to an oxygen concentration of 330,000 parts per million (ppm). The testing procedure as detailed in METHOD TWO below is accepted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) as a standard test for testing water for dissolved oxygen content. It is the most conservative method and only tests for dissolved O2 and O3. No standard and accepted testing exists for other species of oxygen. For this reason, H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen uses METHOD TWO test results as the minimum basis for its oxygen content.

Because of the extremely high concentration of dissolved oxygen in H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen, H2O-BOO2ST® had to locate several reliable methods of testing for the dissolved oxygen content of the solution. It was necessary to also create new testing methods by diluting the H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen into a concentration that could be tested and then mathematically calculating the amount of oxygen in solution using standard analytical methods. H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen uses two different reliable and consistently accurate methods of testing its solution for dissolved oxygen. These tests utilize the LaMotte Labs MR Test Tab DPD and 3188 Test Kit and the LaMotte Model EDO/AG-30 Test Kit

The final test analysis of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen includes the measurement of ClO2, O1, O2, and O3 in both dissolved and molecularly bonded states.

Before the bottling or packaging process begins, H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is tested once again for its oxygen content using one or both of the methods described above. A 16 oz. bottle of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is kept in storage from each manufactured batch. Batch samples are re-tested for oxygen content approximately every 90 days to test for oxygen stability, and each sample bottle is kept for 36 months (3 years).

H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen guarantees the shelf-life of its stabilized oxygen for 36 months from the date of manufacture. Each bottle and/or container is marked with a registered and unique batch number. Standard shelf-life tests are conducted on a regular basis to insure efficacy of the product.

BY COMPARISON, HOW MUCH OXYGEN IS NORMALLY PRESENT IN WATER?
Running water (streams and rivers) may contain as much as 10 ppm of dissolved oxygen (O2). Standing water (lakes) may contain as high as 7 ppm of dissolved oxygen. The ocean (salt water) contains approximately 5 ppm of dissolved oxygen. Ponds can contain as little as 1-3 ppm of dissolved oxygen. Tap (faucet) water in most large industrialized cities contains a maximum of 5-7 ppm of dissolved oxygen. Some bottled waters contain less than 5 ppm of available dissolved oxygen. H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen, by comparison, contains over 350,000 ppm of bio-available oxygen.

IF H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN DOESN'T CONTAIN SODIUM CHLORITE, AND OTHERS DO, WHY AREN'T THESE OXYGEN SUPPLEMENTS REGULATED BY THE F.D.A?
Sodium chlorite (NaClO2) 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 under very specific guidelines. 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. H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen contains NO CHLORITE MOLECULES.

The chlorite concentrations for all other competitive 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.

Independent analysis by Chemtech and U.S.A.N.A. indicates that no substances with levels high enough to indicate toxicity to human beings exists in H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen. The sodium levels for H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen, based on the Chemtech assay, indicates 9.24 ppm which is well below the recommended daily reference standards determined by the U.S. Government.

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 H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen has been found to be "...totally safe to the human body." Lab assays and analysis of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen are available upon request.

WHAT IS THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN IF IT IS NOT SODIUM CHLORITE OR SOME OTHER OXYCHLORINE COMPOUND?
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.

While H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen does have as its primary active ingredients dissolved oxygen molecules in water in the form of O2 and O3, these molecules are not "forced" into our solution under pressure nor bubbled through the solution to enhance absorption. Rather, the O2 molecules in H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen are "created" from the actual solution itself and are activated using our proprietary techniques. Thus, the O2 and O3 molecules in our solution are not dissolved in our aqueous solution in the traditional sense. This is why we are able to stabilize O2, and O3, something no other company has been able to accomplish.

Again, it is extremely important to point out that our H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen solution differs greatly from ALL OTHER oxygen liquid supplements because H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is based on dissolved oxygen not on oxychlorine or other oxygen-based compounds.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BIO-AVAILABLE OXYGEN IN H2O-BOO2ST® 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 the most stable of the 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 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.

IS pH REALLY AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN SELECTING AN OXYGEN SUPPLEMENT? H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is pH balanced (6.8-7.8). All other oxygen supplements may be considered highly toxic and/or caustic because their pH values are normally in excess of 10.0. This is why H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is so very unique in the field of oxygen supplements.

H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen, unlike other oxygen products based on oxychlorine compounds, contains no sodium chlorite. These oxychlorine substances, as well as high levels of sodium, result in a high pH value. The active ingredients in H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen are dissolved O2 and O3. This is the main reason, coupled with low sodium concentrations, why the pH of H2O-BOO2ST® 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. The HCl reacts with the chlorite ion to create a chlorine (Cl) and diatomic oxygen molecule (O2). It is only when this reaction has taken place that the O2 can be absorbed into the blood stream, primarily through the stomach lining.

A number of dangers are possible when significant amounts of chlorite are present. First, if the chlorite has not been adequately diluted in water before being consumed, it can damage (burn) 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 have irritated or damaged the lining of the stomach. 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. Over prolonged usage under this situation, the stomach lining may become severely damaged.

Almost every other stabilized oxygen manufacturer warns the consumer to thoroughly mix and dilute their products in water before taking the products internally. Most also warn that their products should never be used topically. This is because of the high pH toxicity. H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen may be taken internally in its concentrated or diluted form; it may also be used topically if desired. It is the only stabilized oxygen supplement that can be used in this manner. The reason is the balanced pH of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen.

CAN THE OXYGEN IN H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN AFFECT THE ABSORPTION OR DETOXIFICATION PROCESS OF ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION?
The importance of the rate of absorption, distribution, and dilution of alcohol in the body lies in the relationship of how much alcohol is concentrated in the various body organs, particularly the brain. After a rapid intake of alcohol, an early "high" or a sensation of intoxication will occur. A man, of average weight and size, who consumes 6 ounces of alcohol, will take over 6 hours to eliminate 90% of the alcohol out of the body. More specifically, the metabolic process can eliminate about a half an ounce of alcohol (equal to an ounce of spirits, or a 12-ounce bottle of beer, or a 4-ounce glass of dry wine, or a 2.5 ounce glass of fortified wine) per hour.

The body begins to dispose of alcohol almost immediately after it has been absorbed -- primarily through the stomach walls. An insignificantly small portion is exhaled through the lungs, and a tiny amount is secreted through the sweat glands. A small portion is secreted by the kidneys and eventually eliminated in the urine. Only 2-10% of the alcohol will be eliminated by the above means.

The remaining 90% can only be disposed of by the metabolic process which takes place mainly in the liver. The other organs can only metabolize a small percentage of alcohol present in the blood. The simplified metabolic process in the liver goes something like this: alcohol in the liver is acted upon by ADH (alcohol dehydrogenase) which is a zinc-containing enzyme. The alcohol molecule is converted by ADH to acetaldehyde which is a very toxic substance much like formaldehyde. It is quickly acted upon by another enzyme called aldehyde dehydrogenase and is converted to acetate (again toxic but not as toxic as acetaldehyde). The acetate is passed back into the blood stream where it reacts with oxygen to be broken down into the non-toxic substances carbon dioxide and water. Note that this breakdown CANNOT TAKE PLACE WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF AN ABUNDANT SUPPLY OF OXYGEN IN THE BLOOD STREAM.

The average-sized man who rapidly drinks and absorbs 4 ounces of whiskey (at 50% alcohol) will have 1.5 ounces of alcohol in his body at the end of an hour and a blood alcohol concentration close to 0.07 percent. If he drinks eight ounces in two hours, he will have a blood alcohol concentration of about 0.11 percent. The continued accumulation of alcohol faster than it can be metabolized leads to increasing degrees of intoxication.

It is thus apparent that the best way to decrease the affects of alcohol in the blood stream is to provide the body with an ample supply of oxygen using H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen to support the metabolic process to reduce alcohol to water and carbon dioxide. This process, which takes place primarily in the liver, takes energy. This energy is produced using oxygen to create ATP - the energy source for the cells. If the blood oxygen levels in the plasma and in hemoglobin are reduced due to any factor, the body's ability to metabolize the alcohol in the blood will be severely limited and the intoxicating affects (and after affects) will not be minimized.

CAN H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN AFFECT EITHER BENEFICIAL OR DETRIMENTAL MICROBES IN THE BODY?
H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen has been clearly shown to have extensive anti-microbial properties in direct proportion to concentration and time. H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen appears to inhibit the growth or to reduce the colony count of the following general categories of anaerobic (non-air tolerant) organisms: bacterium, virus, yeast, mold, fungus and parasite.

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 flora 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 celluar structure into water H2O and O 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 be clearly established in the medical literature. H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen safely increases the available oxygen levels of the blood stream.

H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN TASTES SALTY. HOW DOES THIS AFFECT INDIVIDUAL ON A LOW-SALT DIET?
One daily recommended dose of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen (45 drops), taken in three doses of 15 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 Rice Crispies contains over 300 mg of sodium.

HOW DOES H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN GET INTO THE BODY?
There appears to be ample supportive scientific evidence that dissolved oxygen in a liquid supplement form can be absorbed either sub-lingually 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 which 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 H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen by Suntory International of Japan indicates that there is a direct and long-lasting correlation between the consumption of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen and an increased partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood. The Duke University study, completed in March of 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 H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen, when taken orally, is absorbed into the blood stream where it is transported directly to the tissues.

CAN H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN BE TAKEN WITH FOOD?
We do know that when H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is taken with food that some of the bio-available oxygen is consumed 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. A great deal depends on how much food and what type of food is consumed with H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen. We recommend that H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen be taken on an empty stomach, preferably 30 minutes before eating and two hours after eating to get the greatest physiological benefits from the product.

CAN H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN BE TAKEN WITH OTHER NUTRITIONAL PRODUCTS?
Absolutely. H2O-BOO2ST® 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.

WHY IS THERE A CHLORINE "SMELL" TO H2O-BOO2ST® OXYGEN IF IT DOES NOT HAVE ANY CHLORINE IN IT?
The standard method for testing for free chlorine involves the use of DPD test tablets which react with various forms of natural oxidizing agents as well as any free chlorine in water. These oxidizers include: ozone, chlorite, chlorate, hypochlorus acid, hypochloric acid,bromine and iodine.

The presence of any of these compounds in water will react with the DPD test tablets or other free chlorine test solution kits and will indicate an incorrect reading of the free chlorine levels. H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen contains ozone, a very small amount of chlorate and a trace level of iodine and bromine. Thus, tests using the above methods will indicate levels of free chlorine that are inaccurate.

H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen is also processed using activated charcoal filters which eliminate any and all trace amounts of free chlorine that might be in the solution. As our assays reveal, H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen contains sodium chloride (NaCl) and during the manufacturing process these atoms are separated into Na+ and Cl- ions.

We are more sensitive to the "smell" of Cl- just as we are more sensitive to the "taste" of Na+. Again, chlorine gas (Cl2) is not a by-product of H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen reacting in the blood stream, digestive system or on the skin. We can, however, detect the smell of Cl- (chloride ions) as the Cl- ions evaporate with the ozone in H2O-BOO2ST® Oxygen when it is placed in water, on the skin or in the mouth.
