What is HOCl?
HOCl is a natural part of our internal defense system and is produced in our white blood cells as a component that works to fight infection, control responses to injury, and enhance healing.
When produced outside the body, HOCl is an electrolyzed, antimicrobial, biocide solution that inactivates pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, spores, and fungi.
HOCl is safe for use on humans and animals, and its proven benefits and varied applications are well-known in the world of science.HOCl is a product of normal physiological mechanisms in the body that works as part of the healthy response to injury and recover, and when applied topically, there is no bubbling or tingling sensation, unlike many other topically applied solutions that sting, irritate or aggravate tissue damage at wound sites.
HOCl consistently shows no adverse effects, only a soothing, steady control over the healing process that quickly become evident.
HOCl : Real Science in the Human Body
Harmful pathogens (bacteria, spores and viruses) can be found all around us in the air, on food, plants, animals, and on inanimate surfaces. The human body uses innate, non-specific mechanisms as the first line of defense against injury and infection. The skin itself, and mucous secretions at epithelial membranes are both important elements of innate resistance. But when these are breached, HOCl is immediately generated in response as the key chemical component of innate immunity.
White blood cells move out of the blood vessels at the wound site, sensing invaders presence through chemical signals. There they set about orchestrating defenses. In a burst of biochemical activity— the “oxidative burst” — white blood cells use the chloride component of their normal salt content and generate HOCl. This works both inside vacuoles (phagosomes) that form around ingested microbes, and in the extracellular tissue environment to marshall the necessary forces of antimicrobial attack and tissue defense.
