Hydrogen 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.
