Microhydrin® E n e r g y , E n d u r a n c e a n d R e c o v e r y
Key benefits: Energy and endurance*... Reduced soreness after exercise*... Powerful antioxidant protection*
What is it?
Microhydrin is a powerful antioxidant that supplies the body with
building blocksto help create energy, enhance endurance and speed recovery .* Microhydrin can give you the life energy not provided by our modern diets .*
What is it formulated to do?
This uniquely powerful antioxidant provides your body with the building blocks to produce energy on a cellular level. You need an abundant supply of electrons to generate energy. Microhydrin provides the highest number of electrons of any antioxidant available
Who may benefit?
Everyone, regardless of age, can benefit from Microhydrin. If you need energy, endurance and an increased ability to recover quickly, you need Microhydrin.
How is it used?
Microhydrin can be taken every day as a powerful antioxidant. Athletes enjoy taking Microhydrin just before their workout because it gives them more energy, greater endurance and it hastens muscle recovery.
Microhydrinhas been proven to be an incredibly potent antioxidant .* Research has shown that Microhydrin provides powerful protection from free radical damage .* While taking 4 capsules of Microhydrin a day for two weeks, patients showed a 43% increase in free radical protection as compared to the placebo group.
Free radicals are unstable compounds our bodies generate every day. The presence of these compounds is normal; however, poor eating habits, pollution, stress and other factors have led to a dangerous increase in the number of free radicals created by our bodies.
Free radicals, created through oxidation, are compounds that have lost an electron. They travel through the body, stealing electrons, which damages normal, healthy cells. This can impair the intracellular DNA and RNA and other important molecules in the cell. Damage caused by free radicals is closely linked to many degenerative diseases.
What exactly is Microhydrin?
Microhydrinis a unique silicate mineral; a compound of silica and hydrogen ions that contain loosely bound extra electrons. The extra electrons are freely given to neutralize free radicals, rendering them harmless. Microhydrinis unique because hydrogen, being the smallest element, can provide trillions of these electrons – more than any other antioxidant known .*
Research backed benefits:
• Within the proper pH range, the body can exercise its amazing capacity to restore itself. When eight patients took 4 capsules per day for 18 days, their saliva pH and urine pH both improved
• Eight patients received 4 capsules per day for two weeks and their extracellular and intracellular hydration improved. Extracellular water bathes the cells while intracellular water is inside the cell. Intracellular hydration is an indicator of cell integrity
• Our bodies need an adequate supply of oxygen to survive.
Microhydrinimproves cellular oxygenation .*
• Oxygen burns hydrogen, producing energy. Hydrogen and oxygen combine to produce ATP, the energy molecule of our cells. ATP is dependent on the production of NADH.
Microhydrinhelps produce NADH, which carries hydrogen into the cell. The reactions that take place create water and ATP. Athletes and other customers have reported a noticeable increase in energy upon consuming Microhydrin .*
• The billions of cells in our bodies must communicate with each other to maintain life. This communication takes place through electrons, which cannot move in the body without hydrogen.
Microhydrinprovides an abundant supply of negatively charged hydrogen ions, giving your body the electrons it needs to keep cellular communication flowing .*
• One capsule of Microhydrin gives ordinary water the surface tension of normal, healthy extracellular fluid
.* This enhances your body’s ability to absorb nutrients .* Your cells are constantly taking in nutrients and flushing out toxins. Proper surface tension greatly enhances the efficiency of these cellular reactions.
Microhydrinconsists of natural-source minerals. Once it is consumed, it releases negative hydrogen ions, normally found in fresh organic fruits and vegetables, to provide the life energy that is missing from our modern diets. We need these electrons to function properly at the cellular level. Toxicity tests performed by an independent lab show safety at levels far above the suggested dose, indicating that Microhydrin is extremely safe. *

Abstracts of Evaluation Studies of Microhydrin®
A Functional Silicate Nanocolloid
Clinton H. Howard and Kimberly Lloyd
Revised January, 2000
Royal BodyCare is conducting an ongoing series of laboratory and clinical studies designed to evaluate the nutritional characteristics and benefits of Microhydrin (250 mg per capsule) as a mineral antioxidant. The following is a brief summary of the results of studies completed as of January 2000.
Microhydrin® Effectively Lowered Blood Lactic Acid
Levels During Strenuous Exercise
The Exercise Physiology Department of the University of North Texas Health Science Center
atFort Worth, Texas conducted a double blind, placebo controlled crossover study in 6 male cyclists for blood lactic acid (lactate) clearance during a 40K (24.8 mi) timed bicycle ride at maximum speed. Subjects received 4 capsules of Microhydrin or placebo daily taking one in the morning, two at noon and one in the evening during the week prior to testing and during the week of testing. Subjects refrained from all other non-prescribed supplements during the testing period. Additionally, subjects took 2 capsules with water 30 min. Before the start of exercise. Blood lactate levels were measured before and 5 min. After each exercise session. Microhydrinsignificantly decreased blood lactic acid (lactate) levels as compared to placebo during strenuous exercise (p = 0.03). (Published data Journal of Medicinal Foods, 1999 Vol 3 No.4 p151-159 Peter Raven Ph.D. 1999 & Wendy Wasmund, B.S. University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth, 1999.)
Lactic acid accumulates during strenuous or prolonged exercise. It is a common problem for athletes, people who work out, play sports or do physical exercise for an extended time.
The decreased lactic acid (lactate) levels immediately after strenuous exercise is another indicator of the ability of Microhydrin to help in providing a direct energy source (ATP production) to cellular function. An
ergogenicenergy function is when a substance enhances biochemical energy without introducing additional carbohydrates or calories to the diet. Microhydrinin Intra and Extra Cellular Hydration
A double blind placebo controlled pilot study was conducted using the RJL Bioelectrical Impedance Analyzer that measures hydration of the body based on nutritional status developed by R. J. Liedtke. Seven subjects received 4 capsules of Microhydrin per day for two weeks and were crossed over receiving 4 capsules per day of a placebo (rice bran flour). Averaged values showed increased intracellular and extracellular hydration due to the consumption of Microhydrin as compared to the placebo group.
The increase observed in Extracellular Water values were statistically significant (p < 0.05) when consuming Microhydrin as compared to taking the placebo. (Unpublished data Gary Osborn R.Ph. & Heriberto Salinas, MD Texas Institute of Functional Medicines, 1999)
Body Cell Mass (BCM) and Intracellular Water (ICW) are assessments of intracellular volume and water inside the cell, respectively. Extracellular Body Water, water that bathes the cells, also showed increased volume. Intracellular water makes up approximately 60% of the total body water of healthy adults. Intracellular water, as an indicator of cell integrity, is found to be higher in babies but decreases as adults age or lose body cell mass. Healthy tissue cells hold water within the cells and have higher anabolic (building up) function rather than catabolic (breaking down) function.< P>
Microhydrin Protection Against Oxidative Stress
A double blind placebo controlled crossover pilot study was conducted on 7 subjects who received 4 capsules/day of Microhydrin for two weeks, and received 4 capsules/day of a placebo for two weeks. Urine alkenal/creatinine ratios were measured. During Microhydrin supplementation, a 43% increase in free radical protection was observed as compared to the placebo group. Microhydrin was observed in this study to protect against serum alkenals. Alkenals are the oxidative products of serum lipid peroxides occurring from free radical attacks on cellular lipid membranes and lipoproteins. They are indicators of free radical damage in the body associated with a higher risk of age related diseases. (Unpublished data Gary Osborn R.Ph. & Heriberto Salinas, MD Texas Institute of Functional Medicines, 1999)
Evaluation of Microhydrin in the Production of NADH in Vitro
ATP production, the principal source of energy in the mitochondria, depends on the production of NADH. Reduced hydrogen, generated by the Kreb’s Cycle, is carried by NADH into the mitochondria for the electron transport chain reactions that will ultimately create a molecule of water and ATP.
Hydrogen is one of the most important elements donating an electron, an electron pair or its proton to reduction/oxidation reactions of numerous enzymes and intermediates within the cell’s metabolic pathways. In vitro assays measured the direct conversion of NAD+ to NADH by the addition of Microhydrin. The sequential addition of increasing concentrations of Microhydrin to NAD+ showed a linear increase in NADH production as measured by its absorption at 350 NM. (Unpublished data Joe McCord, Ph.D University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, 1998).
Microhydrin Increases Mitochondrial NADH Production and Enhances Mitochondrial Membrane Potential in Intact Liver Cells
Microhydrin (200 ug/ml) was introduced to cultured 90% viable rat hepatocytes (500,000cells/ 4ml medium). Blue auto-fluorescence of mitochondrial NADH was visualized by a Zeiss LSM 410 inverted laser scanning confocal microscope using a 40X water immersion lens and 356/365 NM excitation light from a UV argon laser. Under the conditions used, auto-fluorescence arises primarily from mitochondrial NADH. Oxidation of NADH to NAD causes loss of fluorescence since only NADH is fluorescent.
The line graph summarizes data from 3 Microhydrin and 3 vehicles (control) experiments. In the Microhydrin group NADH increased 20% over 20 minutes while the vehicle group showed a decrease in NADH fluorescence by about 30%. These preliminary experiments suggest that Microhydrin promotes electron transfer to NAD in intact living hepatocytes. Moreover, Microhydrin prevented the spontaneous oxidation (or bleaching) of NADH that generally occurs during an incubation of this type (see vehicle plot) thereby indicating a continuous recharging of the pyridine nucleotide (NADH).
Mitochondrial membrane potential was monitored using overnight cultured hepatocytes similar to the NADH experiment and which were loaded for 20 min. With the fluorescent probe tetramethylrhodamine methyl ester (TMRM). The medium was adjusted to pH 7.4 to assure that the previously noticed increase in membrane potential was not due to a pH effect. The TMRM-loaded cells were imaged with a Zeiss 410 inverted laser scanning confocal microscope through a 63X objective lens. In these experiments, an increase of the mitochondrial fluorescence of TMRM represents an increase of mitochondrial depolarization (more negative membrane potential). The line graph summarizes data from 3 Microhydrin and 4 vehicle experiments. In the vehicle group, TMRM fluorescence decreased by about 6% over 20 minutes. In the Microhydrin group, TMRM increased about 25%. These preliminary experiments suggest that Microhydrin enhances mitochondrial membrane potential in intact living hepatocytes. The combination of increased mitochondrial membrane potential and increased NADH suggests an enhancement of bio-energetic capacity of the mitochondria when Microhydrin is present in the cell suspension (Unpublished data 1999). Microhydrin appears to be providing electrons or H- available to the co-factors that are able to utilize these for cellular energy production. NADH provides electrons to the mitochondria electron transport chain directly producing H20 and ATP, the primary cellular energy source for numerous biochemical reactions throughout the cell.
Evaluation of Microhydrin as a Scavenger of Free Radicals, Report I
Tests on Microhydrin were conducted using electron spin resonance techniques (ESR) by a scientist who specializes in the evaluation of antioxidants at a major university. The following quotes from the test report:
"We have made a thorough investigation of the antioxidant activity of Microhydrin by several experimental methods. Hydroxyl radical scavenging activity was found in two different Microhydrin preparations provided."
"Our conclusions are that Microhydrin has antioxidant activity towards hydroxyl radicals. Hydroxyl radicals are among the most dangerous of oxygen free radicals that occur in biological systems. They are the same types of radicals that can be produced by exposure to ionizing radiation. Therefore, it can be stated that Microhydrin has antioxidant activity in this regard." (Personal Communication: Lester Packer, Ph.D., University of California at Berkley, 1999)
Evaluation of Microhydrin as a Scavenger of Free Radicals, Report II
Tests on Microhydrin were conducted by a scientist who specializes in the evaluation of antioxidants at a separate major university. The following quotes from the test report: "When assayed in the ‘standard’ assay for super oxide dismutase activity based upon the reduction of cytochrome c by xanthine (see J. Biol. Chem. 244: 6049-6055, 1969), Microhydrin showed two characteristics:
- Microhydrin can directly reduce cytochrome c, showing that it is a reducing agent (or an antioxidant).
- Microhydrin can inhibit the superoxide-mediated reduction of cytochrome c, indicating that it can scavenge the superoxide free radical.”
"When assayed with an alternative method based on the ability of superoxide to oxidize epinephrine to adrenochrome, Microhydrin also showed its ability to scavenge the superoxide radical and inhibit the process." (Personal Communication: Joe McCord, Ph.D., University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, 1998). An abstract of this in vitro antioxidant data was presented and published in the Proceedings of the National Hydrogen Association 10th Annual Meeting. pg. 595-610; 1999)
Physician Using Microhydrin Climbs Mount Everest Without Oxygen
In 1991, at age 39, Denis Brown M.D. Of British Columbia attempted to climb Mt. Everest without supplemental oxygen. He reached 26,000 feet. Again in 1994 he made the climb and achieved 28,000 feet before he surrendered to the extreme conditions and turned back. In 1999, at age 47, he added Microhydrin to his supplement regime. Microhydrin helps to reduce the build-up of free radicals and lactic acid, and supports the production of ATP. He succeeded in reaching the peak of the South Summit at 28,750 ft. Without supplemental oxygen and reported that this time he felt stronger and had more energy than on previous climbs
Aging Marathon Runner On Microhydrin Improves Time.
On January 1997, at age 39, Andrey Kusnetzov ran the Brazil Marathon in 2 hours. 17 min. And 52 Sec. The following December, he added Microhydrin to his daily supplement regime, taking two capsules with a third capsule opened into his glass of water each morning and again each evening. In January, he ran 2 minutes faster, winning first place in the Masters Division (Age 40+) at the Houston Methodist Marathon. The following April 1998, he continued to improve his time and won the Boston Marathon Masters. One year later, at age 41, in a field of 12,000 runners, he again won the Boston Marathon Masters in a faster time of 2 hours. 14 min. And 20 Sec., despite higher wind and heat which caused other top runners to finish with slower times than in the previous year. Following the race, RBC's medical director entered the recovery room where exhausted runners collapsed on cots and were treated for fainting, hyperthermia, and vomiting. Andrey remained standing, relaxed, and appeared unaffected by the run.
Tests Of The Functions of Microhydrin
Microhydrin is a mineral (silica, potassium, magnesium) formed into extremely s found to be in the range of 1-5 microns in size when analyzed with Electron Scanning Micrographs. Its function is to provide literally trillions of hydrogen anions capable of donating electrons into body fluids. Electrons, which Albert Szent-Gyorgyi called the "fuel of life", are abundantly available in organically grown raw vegetables, fruits, and grains, but are deficient in our modern diet of over-cooked, acidic, or highly oxidized foods, beverages, and drinking water. The minerals have been all negatively charged colloids (nano-colloids) that have been saturated with hydrogen. Tap water and bottled waters are oxidized, acidic, and do not provide a source of electrons. When consumed, the body must substantially alter their chemical characteristics in order to convert water into optimal extracellular and intracellular body fluids. Three such characteristics are conductivity, oxidation/reduction potential (ORP) and surface tension.
