MegaHydrate™ is a cutting edge dietary supplement boasting one of the highest antioxidant potentials on the planet. It was created by physicist and medical doctor Patrick Flanagan as a way to boost cellular hydration by reducing the surface tension of water within the body, essentially making the water in and between our cells wetter.
The idea is that with optimal hydration and surface tension of this fluid we are able to more efficiently eliminate toxins and metabolic by-products on the most basic level. Add to this a potential increase in the delivery of important nutrients and you have a recipe for healthier cells and a healthier body.
More than one hundred times more potent than popular plant-based antioxidant sources such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, green tea extract and grape seed extract, MegaHydrate™ has been tested in a clinical setting for its applications to overall wellbeing and free-radical elimination.
According to Flanagan, silica hydride is the only antioxidant compound that does not convert itself into a pro-oxidant after donating its electrons, instead combining with other hydrogen atoms to form a harmless gas or with oxygen and hydrogen to form water. You can read all about the science behind MegaHydrate™ on the links at the bottom.
The following section will outline some of the health benefits associated with MegaHydrate™:
1. Provides much-needed negatively charged hydrogen ions
As a super-concentrated source of these ions, MegaHydrate™ has a very low oxidation reduction potential (ORP). A low ORP means that the antioxidant is extremely likely to donate electrons and act as a more potent free-radical quencher.
2. May slow the aging process
Because of its hydration capacities, MegaHydrate™ may increase moisture in all body parts, giving us a more youthful, vital appearance. This also means that the hair, skin and fingernails may seem more lustrous and shiny.
3. Increases absorption of hydration elements
MegaHydrate™ was developed to offer the same benefits as the waters found in high elevation regions of the world. In some elevated areas of places such as Pakistan, Ecuador and Germany, people seem to live longer and with a better quality of life well into 100 years of age. This is because of the water structure of the frozen glacier water of these regions of the world. MegaHydrate™ mimics these waters in both its structure and health effects. This form of water does not have to work to be absorbed by our cells, but enters into them easily, allowing quicker hydration and nutrient uptake. Good things move into our cells easier, and toxicants also move out easier.
4. May offset the age-related decrease in sensitivity to the “thirst mechanism”
Many people find the desire to drink water diminishes as they get older. Combine a reduced water intake with drinking tea, coffee, soda, energy drinks and other beverages that lead to reduction in overall hydration and you have a situation where you are likely to notice the real effects too little water in your body.
5. Help counteract the consequences of caffeine and alcohol intake
We may be unaware of it, but caffeine overload can lead to anxiety, insomnia, dehydration, stress, dizziness and headaches. MegaHydrate™ can help counteract the negative consequences associated with excessive caffeine and alcohol intake.
6. Boosts health-creating negatively charged hydrogen ions in the body
These negative ions have been shown to boost our sense of well-being and overall health. Hydrogen ions are key to the body’s energy balance. Without enough hydrogen ions from the plants and water we take in, the cells cannot effectively counteract the creation of free radicals in the body, leading to cellular damage and potentially shorter cell life.
7. Augments the “Zeta Potential” in our blood cells
Through its principle ingredient, silica hydride, MegaHydrate™ augments what scientists call “zeta potential” in our blood cells. This compound boosts the charge, as well as stability and space between the blood cells. With more zeta potential, we get more surface area for blood cells. More surface area in these cells allows more room for toxicants such as bacteria, fungus, viruses and pollutants to be expelled. Cleansing waters can reach our cells better due to the increased surface potentials. Studies confirm this heightened zeta response in cells upon taking MegaHydrate™.
8. Boosts overall antioxidant levels in the body
Studies show that one serving provides more antioxidant content than many of the popular superfoods: including wheat grass, green tea, leafy greens and other vegetable and fruit juices. Heightened antioxidant activity may be a key factor in promoting a multitude of health benefits such as longevity, better memory, better energy levels, improved sight and hearing and reduced chances for chronic disease development.
9. Reduce Some Symptoms of Dehydration
MegaHydrate™ may help reduce some of the natural signs of dehydration such as lack of energy, head and muscle aches.
10. Keeps fresh foods fresh for longer
It can be used as a natural preservative for fresh fruit and vegetable juices stored in your refrigerator. Just one half a capsule placed into the juice will allow it to keep its redox potential (nutritional properties) for up to one full week.
11. May Help with Cancer Treatment & Prevention
Some researchers are looking in to its potential applications in the field of cancer treatment and prevention. This is related to its ability to scavenge the free radicals that lead to to tumor formation in the body. Moreover, the negative hydrogen atoms in MegaHydrate™ push cells apart, instead of drawing them together. This spaciousness reduces the likelihood of cancerous tumor growth, increases fluidity in the lymph system and pulls more oxygen into cancerous cells. It also has been found to aid the liver in toxin removal.
