Dr. Patrick Flanagan's Megahydrate
"Our body really only knows one fuel, hydrogen" - 1937 Nobel Lecture, Nobel Prize winner Albert Szent-Györgyi
A breakthrough nutritional invention by scientific genius Dr. Patrick Flanagan and hailed as "the most powerful antioxidant food known", MegaHydrate employs silica hydride with Microcluster® technology to unlock the potential of water as the medium for nutrient replenishment and waste removal at the cellular level. Megahydrate is an advanced antioxidant which supports and promotes full body hydration supplement, protects agains harmful free radicals and greatly supports metabolic activity and energy production.
Megahydrate is a hydride-based compound with negative Hydrogen (H−) ions interstitially embedded in a matrix of caged silica. The silica acts as a colloidal carrier for the hydrogen anions that are released in an aqueous solution. The negatively-charged hydrogen ions react with free radicals to neutralize the harmful effects of the radicals. Free radicals steal electrons from cells resulting in damage to cellular structure and DNA, thus bringing aging, cellular deterioration and disease. MegaHydrate also helps fight the negative effects of alcohol, stress, and free radicals as part of aging*. The active ingredient in MegaHydrate is Silica Hydride which has been shown to be 800% more effective than Green Tea or Grape Seed Extracts. According to Dr. Patrick Flanagan, a very important characteristic of the antioxidant capacity of Silica Hydride is that it is the only antioxidant that does not itself turn into a free radical (i.e., oxidant) once it has neutralized a free radical by donating its electron unlike other antioxidants.
"In bio-chemistry, there is the antioxidant cascade. All previously known antioxidants become free radicals when they neutralize free radicals. The resulting free radicals are not as harmful as those that were neutralized. For example, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) becomes dehydro-ascorbic acid (it has lost its hydrogen). The dehydro-ascorbic acid must be eliminated by the body. This is true of all antioxidants except for H- or active hydrogen. When H- neutralizes a free radical, pure water is the result." - Dr. Patrick Flanagan
Numerous studies have been done on the benefits of Silica Hydride. US Patent US20030190374A1 (Methods of using Silica Hydride Mineral) states - "The exact health benefits of silica hydride minerals, traditionally found in glacial streams, have long been the subject of speculation. Geochemical analysis indicates that such colloidal silica hydrides in water possess a silica-water interface that provides a hydrated surface and adsorbs other elements or compounds such as potassium, iron, magnesium, lithium, calcium, and hydrogen. Dietary supplements with similar properties have been formulated. When the silica-water interface of such compounds is saturated with reduced hydrogen, the compounds take on an overall negative charge and act as a reducing agent or antioxidant when in solution. When consumed, hydride ions introduced into the body by the silica hydride supplement donate electrons to body fluids. With proper dosages, the benefits of consuming silica hydride include reduction of lactic acid build-up, increasing cellular hydration, reduction of free radical damage, enhancement of mitochondrial bioenergetic capacity, increasing antioxidant activity, and enhancing the properties of drinking water."
Silica Hydride, Megahydrate's active ingredient is also known to positively affect the “zeta potential” of blood cells*. Zeta potential (x) is the electric potential, or charge, that exists in a hydrated particle and the surrounding solution. Zeta potential is an electrical charge that describes how far apart cells are. Greater zeta potential indicates more space between cells.
Increased zeta potential has many positive health benefits. More zeta potential means more surface area for cells. Toxins, viral matter, fungi, and bacteria trapped between cells can be expunged more readily. More importantly, water enters cells more easily. Water is arguably the most vital component of anti-aging, life extension, and the removal of free radicals and waste. - Dr. Patrick Flanagan
