Benefits of Hydrogen Peroxide IV Therapy Atlanta

Hydrogen peroxide iv therapyHydrogen Peroxide IV Therapy Benefits In Atlanta

 

 


Hydrogen peroxide has many health benefits. When introduced into the bloodstream, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) oxygenates the body and  turns biological waste products and toxins into static substances that the kidneys and liver can remove from the body.

Hydrogen peroxide is constantly made by the body’s metabolism. It is produced primarily in three organs: the lung, gut, and thyroid gland. The  formation of hydrogen peroxide in cells is an attempt by the body to protect itself from a more dangerous substance, superoxide which is  formed from oxygen molecules during chemical processes in the body. Superoxide can damage proteins and DNA within the body hastening aging and diseases.

A special  enzyme, superoxide dismutase,  that gets rid of superoxide by converting it into hydrogen peroxide, which  is less dangerous than superoxide.  An enzyme found it the liver,  catalase, then later  breaks the peroxide down into oxygen and water  so that it does not create harmful chemicals ( hydroxyl radicals) that can also damage protein and DNA but to a lesser degree than superoxide.

White blood cells also naturally make hydrogen peroxide.  Certain parts that make up white blood cells called “peroxisomes,”  produce hydrogen peroxide. A peroxisome  is a membrane-bound organelle  found in the cytoplasm, the  watery part of cells.   White cells fight infections  by engulfing  bacteria and viruses  and then by putting them in the peroxisomes containing hydrogen peroxide which  destroys disease causing organisms. This happens naturally, without any help from outside sources of hydrogen peroxide.
