PUR-HOCL – Start into a new era

HOCl — Hypochlorus Acid

Its mode of action in the human body

From the moment ani­mals and plants appeared on earth, they had to deal with various thre­ats. Among other things, the­se thre­ats inclu­de patho­gens. Patho­gens which sett­le on the body sur­face or pene­tra­te the body, fre­quent­ly attemp­t­ing to cau­se it harm or even des­troy it. In order to face the­se dan­gers, natu­re took mil­li­ons of years to deve­lop a sub­s­tan­ce or, more accu­rate­ly, an abso­lute­ly uni­que acid — hypo­chlo­rous acid (HOCL). It is a com­po­nent of our immu­ne sys­tem and is pro­du­ced in the white blood cells.

The hypo­chlo­rous acid is non­spe­ci­fic, i.e. the cell con­sti­tu­ents are oxi­di­zed and the micro­or­ga­nisms are ther­e­by inac­tiva­ted — the germ can not beco­me resistant*.

The special properties:

A par­ti­cu­lar chal­len­ge is the arti­fi­ci­al pro­duc­tion of this mira­cle sub­s­tan­ce of natu­re and the lon­ger-term sta­bi­li­za­ti­onAll tri­als of pro­duc­tion in the past, such as elec­tro­ly­sis, gave the same results: low con­cen­tra­ti­on, redu­ced or no shelf life, low or no puri­ty. Pres­um­a­b­ly the­re­fo­re alter­na­ti­ve solu­ti­ons are being used, most­ly based on alco­hol or chlo­ri­ne — with all their advan­ta­ges and dis­ad­van­ta­ges.

One way to make the hypo­chlo­rous acid avail­ab­le is the use of tablets or gra­nu­les, which con­tain a car­ri­er. That’s how PUR-HOCL* works. Through the reac­tion of the car­ri­er with water, the hypo­chlo­rous acid is released bit by bit. This pie­ce­wi­se release crea­tes a buf­fer effect, sin­ce not all the drug is dis­sol­ved at once. In addi­ti­on, PUR-HOCL has a near­ly neu­tral pH, which means that signi­fi­cant­ly less cor­ro­si­on occurs on metals. This leads to enor­mous cost savings becau­se main­ten­an­ce and repair costs can be mini­mi­zed. The con­ver­si­on can be car­ri­ed out wit­hout gre­at (finan­ci­al) effort. In addi­ti­on, PUR-HOCL tablets requi­re a mini­mum of sto­rage capa­ci­ty — ano­t­her cost saving fac­tor!

In addi­ti­on, the wide ran­ge of app­li­ca­ti­ons (see below), the broad spec­trum of activi­ty, as well as the ease of use are empha­si­zed.
