Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) is natural antimicrobial white blood cells make to fight infection. In 1833 Michael Faraday, an English Scientist, invented the process of electrolysis to produce HOCL with a very simple process by taking saltwater and placing negative and positive electrodes in the saltwater then passing electricity through the electrodes. What happens next is the magic that creates HOCL outside the body, by the dissociation of negative and positive ions, on the positive electrode negative ions are attracted to produce HOCL, a very good Oxidant with powerful antioxidant properties, far superior to chemical bleach.
I first heard about the beneficial properties of Hypochlorous Acid (HOCL) back in 2000. At that time, there were plenty of clinical research papers published internationally but it was not widely known or researched in the US. It was surprising that something so simple yet such a powerful antimicrobial solution would not be implemented across a broad range of industries.
Akashi Hospital, Japan was an early adopter of using HOCL for its Eczema patients and experienced excellent results. I was shown over 60 before and after pictures of success stories of children and adult patients who had adopted the HOCL treatment protocol at Akashi hospital and it was what inspired me to dig deeper into the science of HOCL.
Our team has been educating our clients on various applications of HOCL for topical skin conditions and more. This includes a clinical study on the effectiveness of HOCL for Acne which was published in Cosmetic Dermatology a peer-review publication. There are just so many uses for all age groups babies to seniors, diaper rash to Diabetic ulcers.
Here are a few other uses we recommend you try!
We have been fortunate to have Licensed Professionals from many fields work with us over the past 18 years and Dr. Frank Ervolino has been championing the use of HOCL for his patients. His education has helped many understand practical use in day to day life.
Finally, I am so pleased that research continues on the effectiveness of HOCL and I wanted to share another study recently published that provides excellent information and highlights a growing body of clinical information that supports our understanding of the Antimicrobial Power of HOCL.
