How Oral I.V. Takes a Revolutionary Approach Toward Hydration


It is almost impossible to overstate the importance of water to our planet. It covers most of the Earth’s surface, forming its rivers, lakes, ice caps, glaciers, and oceans and is the most abundant compound in the universe. Water is essential to every living thing on Earth, from plants to animals, and acts as a transport for the most important molecules of human life, including proteins and DNA. But what exactly is water and what does it look like inside of our bodies?

In his book, “Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life,” University of Washington professor of bioengineering Dr. Gerald Pollack challenges some of the most widely accepted concepts about water in contemporary cell biology. Central to his findings is the idea that water doesn’t only have three phases as commonly believed—gas, liquid, and solid. There also exists a fourth phase called exclusion-zone (or structured) water, also known by its chemical formula  H3O2. According to Dr. Pollack, this compound does not allow pollutants, toxins, or any harmful particles inside or outside of the cell. Pollack also argues that the cell’s water is structured, with a cytoplasm that’s  gel-like rather than an ordinary aqueous solution. The extra hydrogen atoms in H3O2 constantly create electricity by moving back and forth between molecules, making it a highly conductive molecular structure.

This concept is particularly important when it comes to cellular biology and the way we understand proper hydration. Water, after all, is absolutely central to every function of the cell in the human body. The first thing to keep in mind is that negative charge is critical for optimal cell function. Because structured water is charged like a battery, it can provide that charge to our cells directly. When the body has sufficient energy, its cellular and metabolic functions operate at their best. But structured water is a battery that needs to be charged, ideally by drinking more of it.

So, where can we actually get structured water? Spring water, water deep in the ground that is under a lot of pressure, becomes structured. It can also be found in glacier melts; ice turns into structured water in the phase between solid and liquid. Vortexing, a process that occurs naturally in streams, rivers, and waterfalls, is a powerful way of increasing water structure.

Products that contain electrolytes, like Oral I.V., release electrical charges when they are absorbed by the body. This starts a cascade of hydrogen bonding that triggers the creation of more structured water, ultimately leading to improved hydration. Rather than focus on how many glasses of water a day we’re drinking, we should be looking for effective ways to trigger our body’s hydration processes. The science behind ORAL I.V. is backed by thorough research and a revolutionary approach to hydration. It contains only trace minerals, electrolytes and structured water, meaning it’s raw, organic, and natural as natural can be.
