Active ingredient: DDW

hyd-ddw-plant.jpgDDW (deuterium depleted water) contains deuterium in sub-natural concentration. It means,  that while there is 150 heavy water molecules (D2O) out of 1 million water molecules (H2O) in natural surface waters at our latitude, DDW has been used in the experiments contained 25-130 D2O molecules. These numbers indicate the deuterium concentration of DDW in ppm.

 

The production of DDW is based on the differencies between the physical and chemical characteristics of normal water (H2O) and heavy water (D2O). When producing DDW, we made use of the fact that as a consequence of the different volatility, at the boiling point of normal water, the steam in equilibrium with the liquid contains approximately 2.5 percent less deuterium than the liquid phase. Repeating this evaporation  ̶  which in industrial quantities happens in distilling towers  ̶  the deuterium content of water may be decreased to preference.  Using this method we produce water of a deuterium content anywhere between 25 and 110 ppm. The other frequently used method  is based on the fact that in the hydrogen gas developing during the electrolysis of water, deuterium concentraton is 1/3 to 1/9 of that of water. Hydrogen thus gained which is then oxidized makes water with a depleted deuterium content. With this method, by repeated electrolysis, any D-content can be reached relatively easily.

 

The definition of deuterium content of DDW is carried out in an infrared domain corresponding to the O ̶ D oscillation of the HDO molecule containing a D-atom. Using mass spectrometric technique a greater exactness can be achieved.

 

By using DDW we wish to achieve a simple goal:  the need to decrease the amount of deuterium in the body. This can be achieved with the consumption of DDW because it „mixes” with the water content of the body, thus lowering the D-concentration of the body.  If this process is repeated daily, the D-concentration of the body will continuously decrease and this might result in physiological effects through the changes of the activity of certain genes and enzymes.
