Answers to Oxy-Powder intestinal cleanser for oxygen based colon cleansing.

We are trying to answer these questions as best as we can. It is difficult to tell someone exactly when their bowel is going to be clean without knowing the individual's personal health history and what kind of dietary habits they might have. A lot of factors can affect the way the bowel functions: age, environment, types of beverages you drink, emotions and stresses in life, ability of the body to produce enzymes, hydrochloric acid levels in body and the degeneration of nerves in the bowel area that are used to constrict the bowel musculature. We answer these questions to the best of our knowledge and to the best of our ability.

1) How do I use Oxy-Powder?

Cleansing: Oxy-Powder can be used as an intestinal cleansing agent or to relieve the symptoms of acute constipation. Start by taking four (4) capsules in the evening on an empty stomach with a full 8 oz. glass of water. If you do not achieve 3-5 bowel movements the following day, you will then increase the dosage by adding two (2) capsules every night until you achieve 3-5 bowel movements the following day. Once you find your dosage, this is day one (1) of the seven (7) day cleanse. You will stay on this dosage for seven (7) consecutive days. After the seven (7) day cleanse, take the maintenance dose as directed. You will want to start slowly and gradually progress with the dosage.

Maintenance: Use the same dosage you used for your seven (7) day cleanse every other day. This can be taken indefinitely without becoming habit forming or harmful to the body.


We suggest drinking lots of pure water. This is not only healthy for the body but will aid the body in eliminating toxins from the bowel at a faster rate.
Oxy-Powder works with your own body's HCL (stomach acid); if your level of HCL is below normal, it may hinder the effectiveness of the Oxy-Powder. We suggest squeezing an organic lemon wedge into the 8 oz. glass of purified water taken with the oxy powder in the evening.

2) Should I follow any particular diet while taking Oxy-Powder?

Yes. Eat a healthy live food based diet. In addition, increase the amount of water you drink. Try to avoid any carbonated beverages, caffeine, and alcohol. Reduce your intake of sugar, fried foods, white flour, dairy, etc. Our recommended diet is fresh fruit in the morning, a salad and a carbohydrate source for lunch, and a low calorie and low protein meal for dinner. Our full, complete diet plan is available in Dr. Group's E-Book, Transforming Your Health In 90 Days or Less.

3) Will I be able to go to work while on the Oxy-Powder cleanse?

It is best to start a 7-Day Cleanse on a Friday evening. This way you will more likely have access to a bathroom for longer periods of time. Continuing the cleanse should be manageable as long as you have a restroom nearby at work or school. If you are going to the bathroom 5-7 times a day or more, you can reduce the daily dosage by two capsules. If you decide to do this, increase the cleanse from 7 days to 9 or 10 days.

4) Is Oxy-Powder a powder or does it come in capsules?

Oxy-Powder comes in capsule form. The capsules are Kosher certified vegetarian. Oxy-Powder is not available in a powder form. However, you can empty the capsules into purified water if you have trouble swallowing capsules. You can purchase it at the Wellbeing Marketplace.

5) How will I know when my bowels are clean and the old compacted fecal matter is gone?

Everybody is different depending on diet, exercise patterns, age, as well as physical and emotional stress levels. Frequent stools will begin to cease as the digestive tract frees itself of toxic matter. The stools may still continue to be loose or semi-solid due to the oxidation process. At this point the nascent oxygen will be available for the body to absorb through the capillary walls in the intestinal lining thereby aiding the body in the purification of the blood, organs and lymph system. However, in order to ensure that you continue to be completely clean you would have to eat only live, raw fruits and vegetables, and continue to eliminate the intake of all toxins in the body. This means you should drink only purified water and eat only raw seeds, fruits and vegetables. Because the Standard American Diet (SAD) is so poor we believe that you will continually have to cleanse and keep the whole intestinal lining clean. Therefore, we recommend a continued maintenance dose every other evening.

Go by the bowel activity. You will know by the color, consistency and frequency. As the intestinal tract is becoming clean, the color of the bowel movement should be much lighter and travel time should be less. You should also be experiencing more frequent, healthy soft and smoother bowel movements. Oxygen is helping to kill all kinds of anaerobic bacteria thus some people will notice a foul smell in the initial stages of cleansing. Over time you should have a decrease in foul-smelling bowel movements. A normal and healthy bowel moves in a timely manner, is a lighter color of brown, and is smooth and slick in form.

6) Will I lose weight while using Oxy-Powder?

This is not a product specifically intended for weight loss. Some people have reported weight loss from 5 to 20 pounds using Oxy-Powder. However, this is not fat loss but is due to the elimination of stored hard-compacted fecal matter throughout the whole length of the intestinal tract.

7) How long should I continue to take Oxy-Powder after the initial cleanse?

We recommend you continue on Oxy-Powder maintenance for the rest of your life. There have been many studies indicating that a great number of diseases start in the intestinal lining and colon. It is extremely beneficial to continue the maintenance dosage every other day after the initial cleanse in order to maintain a healthy bowel. With the poor choice of foods we have today, it is a good idea to always keep the intestinal lining and colon clean. Finally, the amount of oxygen in the air we breathe has been declining steadily over time. This means everybody on the planet is oxygen deficient. We recommend continuing Oxy-Powder to help you prevent disease and supply the body with much needed oxygen.

8) How often should I repeat the Oxy-Powder cleanse?

This depends on what your diet consists of and how you feel. If you are constipated, having headaches, overweight, experiencing mood swings, decreased energy levels, emotional stress and if you are not exercising 3x's/weekly then it is recommended to repeat the cleanse once every 3 months. If you stay on a maintenance dose and eat healthy you should repeat the cleanse every 6 months.

9) What ingredients are in Oxy-Powder?

Oxy-Powder is a scientifically formulated product consisting of complex oxides and peroxides of magnesium stabilized with ozone and oxygen at high pressure and low temperature to ensure that the oxygen attaches and remains stable to the oxide molecules. Organic Germanium 132 has been added to help facilitate oxygen delivery and transfer. It also helps to stimulate the immune system. Oxy-Powder is designed to release oxygen slowly when activated by the Hydrochloric acid in your stomach and citric acid contained in the capsule. Oxy-Powder is safe and non-toxic. Oxy-Powder contains no calories or carbohydrates.

10) What makes Oxy-Powder different from other colon cleansers?

First of all it is able to clean the entire 25-30 feet of the digestive tract. It is designed to clean, oxidize and reduce the amount of impaction and hard fecal matter in the small intestine, large intestine and colon. Other cleansers focus on the colon and stimulate mucous production instead of breaking down hard fecal matter. As a colon cleanser it provides oxygen into the bloodstream and bowel and does so in a natural and non-toxic way. The average person by the age of 40 has between 10-20 pounds of hard compacted fecal matter lodged in their intestinal tract. Our intestinal tract is 25-30 feet in length and if you cut it open and spread it out, the surface area is the size of a tennis court. In order to clean the digestive tract you must turn that solid compaction into a liquid or gas, using time-released oxygen (oxidation/reduction). This is what the Oxy-Powder will do. By using Oxy-Powder you can melt away or oxidize the compaction from the small intestine, the large intestine and the colon safely and effectively. This is important because a clean intestinal tract is the beginning of obtaining optimal health.

11) Is Oxy-Powder habit forming?

The bowel will not become dependent on Oxy-Powder unless you have had previous bowel surgery, bowel muscle dysfunction or permanently damaged bowels resulting from Hirschsprung's disease. With Hirschsprung's desease, the nerves going to the bowel have been permanently damaged or destroyed. It is a very common disease affecting millions of people, however conventional doctors do not diagnose it. It is our belief that chronic constipation, stress, depression, lack of exercise and a poor diet can cause permanent damage to nerves in the bowel, although there is no current scientific evidence to support our theory. In some cases, it might seem Oxy-Powder is habit forming but we believe this is because the individual already has a pre-existing, undiagnosed bowel dysfunction.

12) I am experiencing loose stools and am quite concerned. Is this diarrhea?

Oxy-Powder will cause watery, gaseous stools. This is not clinical diarrhea; this is the by-product of oxidation. The causes of diarrhea are usually temporary problems such as an infection or virus, or chronic problems such as an intestinal disease. A few of the more common causes of diarrhea are:

Bacterial infections transmitted through contaminated water or food including Campylobacter, Salmonella, Shigella, Escherichia coli, viral infections, rotovirus, Norwalk virus, cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus, and viral hepatitis
Lactose intolerance
Parasites such as Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, and Cryptosporidium
Reactions to prescription medications, such as antibiotics and blood pressure medications
Intestinal diseases, like inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease
Remember we are turning a solid into a liquid or gas. To help the cleansing process, it is advised to drink half of your body weight in ounces of purified water daily while taking Oxy-Powder even though there has never been a documented case of dehydration or electrolyte imbalance. To figure out your body weight in ounces, please divide your body weight by 2. For example if you weigh 140 pounds divided by 2= 70 ounces in water.

13) Am I going to be in the bathroom all day long?

For the first few days, depending on your weight and how many capsules you take, you may need to be close to the bathroom. If you are experiencing more than 7 bowel movements daily then we suggest reducing the dosage by two capsules daily until you are experiencing 3-5 bowel movements daily. Some people have a lot of compacted fecal matter and may not have a bowel movement until the 2nd or 3rd day. This is quite normal. Please give Oxy-Power a minimum of 5 days to do its job. Each person will be different. This is all part of the cleansing process.

14) Should I be concerned with dehydration while using Oxy-Powder?

To our knowledge there has never been a case of dehydration or an electrolyte deficiency while using Oxy-Powder. We do, however, recommend drinking half of your body weight in ounces of purified water daily while taking Oxy-Powder to help flush the oxidized toxins out of the bowel. Example: A 200 pound person would drink 100 ounces of purified water every day. This will help hydrate the body and help with the release of toxic substances. It might seem like you have diarrhea but this is just the hard matter which has been reduced to a liquid form. If you feel nauseas after taking a oxygen based cleanser it might suggest that you are electrolyte deficient.

15) What symptoms might I experience while taking Oxy-Powder?

You may experience watery, gaseous stools, bowel sounds or gurgling, or some temporary stomach or bowel cramping due to the gas build-up while taking Oxypowder. If you experience cramping for more than two days then switch to the daily schedule which is two capsules 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. You may increase or decrease the dosage as necessary. Other side-effects may include mild headaches or temporary joint pain. All will resolve as soon as the toxins are expelled from the body.

If you are experiencing bouts of constipation, bloating or gas then you may also be suffering from the symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome, an over-growth of yeast or non-beneficial intestinal parasites or microbes.

Oxy-Powder releases monatomic oxygen, which has been shown in lab tests to kill forms of fungus, yeast and bacteria. The oxidation of the compacted toxic material along with the possible deaths of harmful micro-organisms, yeast and fungus from the monatomic oxygen can be absorbed back into the blood stream through tiny holes (resulting from years of damage) in the intestinal lining. This may cause you to experience temporary cramping, draining sinuses, fatigue, skin eruptions and insomnia. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please give Oxy-Powder thirty days to help balance your intestinal system.

16) Can I use Oxy-Powder while pregnant or nursing?

Please consult with your healthcare practitioner before using Oxy-Powder during pregnancy or while nursing. Most doctors feel comfortable recommending Oxy-Powder to their pregnant and nursing patients, but in a reduced dosage. Generally, the recommended dose is half of the suggested dose. In some cases, taking Oxy-Powder while breastfeeding caused the baby's stool to become loose. If such a thing happens, the mother needs to reduce the dosage until the baby's stool becomes normal again.

17) I read on another forum that it looks like the only active ingredient in oxy powder is magnesium and that it acts like a laxative, and therefore may be addictive. If this is the case... (like with Milk of Magnesia) then why use Oxy-Powder. Also, why isn't "oxygen" present in the list of ingredients?

First of all magnesium is not the active ingredient in Oxy Powder. Oxy Powder contains ozonated magnesium oxide, ozonated magnesium peroxide, germanium 132 and natural citric acid. Milk of Magnesia is magnesium hydroxide which is a saline type laxative; the magnesia acts to pull salts or a saline solution into the intestines from the blood. This excessive fluid from your blood then provides a flushing or laxative action within the intestines. Oxy-Powder causes no salt to be lost from the body. Products like Milk of Magnesia that actually pull salts out can possibly cause a loss of sodium resulting in an electrolyte deficiency.

All bowel disorders and intestinal disorders are different depending on the individual person's age, exercise patterns, diet and other factors including structural abnormalities, advanced age, neurogenic disorders, heavy consumption of junk food, iron supplements, pain killers, anti-depressants, low levels of thyroid hormone, kidney failure, diabetes, dehydration on a daily basis, heart medications, and antihistamines. Therefore, it is hard to say Oxy-Powder is addictive considering the damage that the majority of people cause upon their intestinal lining on a daily basis. Oover time, with one or more of the following factors stated above, the nerve cells in the wall of the colon can be damaged or destroyed. When this happens you may become dependent on some form of bowel movement method because the nerves may not be able to fire the muscles to contract the bowel. In this case a person might have to continue to use something to keep the bowels moving. Oxy-Powder should be used for cleansing, acute constipation and maintenance purposes only.

As to why oxygen is not present in the list of ingredients, the FDA Guidelines only require the physical elements of what's in the bottle or in the capsules to be listed. Since oxygen is not released until it hits a catalyst (hydrochloric acid) in the stomach, it is listed on the label as ozonated and stabilized to release beneficial nascent oxygen into the intestinal tract and body. Oxygen is only released once it hits the HCL in the stomach.

18) If I forget my capsules one day I have difficulty having a movement. What research do you have that makes this product safe for continuous use?

Again, Oxy-Powder will not cause bowel dependence but if a pre-existing bowel dysfunction is present then it may seem as though Oxy-Powder is continually needed. What is happening is that Oxy-Powder is actually helping the bowel to do a job which previously it has been unable to do. This should not be termed as dependence but actually giving needed help to the intestinal system to rid itself of harmful toxins and compaction, thereby reducing the load that the already dysfunctional intestinal tract has to handle. All of the contents in Oxy-Powder have been approved for human consumption for years, and the by-product is oxygen which we know is harmless. Some people have been on Oxy-Powder continuously for 5 years or more and they are very healthy. There are a lot of causes of chronic constipation, and the damages caused by chronic constipation can sometime be very hard to repair. A permanently damaged bowel is called Hirschsprung's disease - which means the nerves going to the bowel have been permanently damaged or destroyed. It is a very common disease affecting millions of people, however conventional doctors do not diagnose it.

Other causes of nerve damage and constipation in the bowel are:

1. Iron supplements
2. Painkillers
3. Antidepressants
4. Low Thyroid Hormones
5. Kidney malfunction
6. Diabetes
7. Dehydration
8. Cough Syrup
9. Codeine
10. Heart Medication
11. Calcium Carbonate Supplements - TUMS etc..
12. Antihistamines

Oxy-Powder can be used continually if needed.

19) My bowel movements are still semi solid / solid; I am not having the watery movements mentioned in all the information listed on your site. What is happening and is there something else I could be doing?

Oxy-Powder works with the bodies own HCL or Hydrochloric acid in the stomach. If you have low levels of HCL in the body then the effectiveness of the Oxy-Powder could be hindered. We would recommend that you use a quarter wedge of an organic lemon squeezed into the water you are drinking at night with the Oxy-Powder. This will give the body enough extra acid to facilitate the Oxy-Powder and make it much more effective. If after doing this you do not see results then switch to the Daily Oxy-Powder schedule consisting of 2 capsules or more 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner along with the lemon water and 30 minutes of daily brisk walking. Sometimes people may have a very narrow section in the bowel, a bowel loop or some form of constriction so by switching to a daily schedule the gravity will help move the compaction down to the colon.

20) I am not having bowel movements on the days that I am not taking the Oxy-Powder. Can I take Oxy-Powder everyday?

Oxy-Powder is safe to use every day although we recommend taking the product every other day. The bowel muscle is like any other muscle in the body and needs to be exercised. This happens through the body recognizing the urge to eliminate. When you are constipated your body is not recognizing that urge.

This will allow, with time, the elimination of fecal matter on the days you are not taking the Oxy- Powder. We want to not only help you with your constipation issues but also help you learn to eliminate on your own. Again, keep in mind this will be different with those already battling bowel disorders.

21) Can children take Oxy-Powder?

As always when dealing with children we recommend you speak to their Health Care Professional when adding new supplementation to their regimen. If you feel that Oxy-Powder would be helpful for your child we would follow the guidelines as stated. We would recommend that they are at a weight of 30 lbs+. For an initial dosage start with ½ or 1 Capsule emptied into a 4-6 oz. glass of half purified water and half organic apple juice and taken on an empty stomach. Then wait to see how their body reacts to the low dosage. You may find it beneficial to start on a Friday night so that you can monitor their progress. When increasing his/her dosage, please increase slowly by ½ capsule, until you find a dosage that allows the relief they are looking for. Do not allow children to do a 7-day Cleansing Process. You can however allow them to take the maintenance dose every other day until you are familiar with their reaction to Oxy-Powder. Please note that the Oxy-Powder will give children a very liquid, watery and gaseous stool. This is not diarrhea but the fecal compaction oxidizing into a liquid and gaseous form. *** Please note: Children may not be able to control their bowels. Be sure to explain this to your child so that they realize that when they have the urge to have a bowel movement or pass gas what may happen is that may pass liquid rather than what they would normally expect.

22) Can I take Oxy-Powder while using prescription medications?

As far as we know there are no contraindications when taking Oxy-Powder with prescription meds as long as the Oxy Powder is taken 6 hours before or 6 hours after the medicine. It is always best to check with your healthcare professional before adding any supplement to your regimen.

23) I have not seen any mucoid plaque or black colored stools that have been mentioned on some of the testimonials on your site. What does this mean?

There's a lot of controversy regarding mucoid plaque. MP is actually not a recognized medical diagnosis nor is it a scientific term in any medical manual. There have been a set of approximately 10 pictures floating around on the internet for the last few years which show a ropey, black intestinal mass. We think these photos were taken from a medical examiner after an autopsy.

We don't mention it on our website - we use the term "compacted fecal matter," which Oxy-Powder will dissolve and eliminate. As far as color of the stools, it varies from individual to individual. The color and constancy of stools can be affected by stress, dietary habits, alcohol and caffeine consumption and exercise. It is more important to have bowel movements regularly then to be evaluating the color.

Please keep in mind that testimonials are based on individual experiences. Your experience will not always be the same as someone else's and should never be used as a guideline. The testimonials we provide are there to share individual experiences only.

24) Should I take Oxy-Powder with Bentonite clay, Psyllium, or other forms of fiber, so that I can make sure everything gets cleaned out?

There are a number of individuals that have used Oxy-Powder in conjunction with Bentonite and Psyllium and have achieved good results. Fiber is a necessity to our diet and if you are not getting enough fiber through the foods that you are eating then we would agree that some form of fiber would be beneficial. In our clinical observations Oxy-Powder by itself can aid the body in the removal of toxins, heavy metals and harmful bacteria.

25) I have been diagnosed with IBS and am noticing undigested food particles in my stool even while taking Oxy-Powder. Shouldn't Oxy-Powder be melting this also? Will Oxy-Powder eventually help to heal the IBS?

IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is one of the most common digestive disorders, affecting one out of every 5 adults in the world today. IBS is also called intestinal neurosis, mucus colitis, spastic colitis or spastic colon. With IBS the normal contractions of the bowel become irregular and uncoordinated interfering with the normal movement of food and waste material. With IBS you have an accumulation of toxins and mucus in the intestines which can partially obstruct the bowel causing bloating, distention and constipation. IBS can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the rectum. It is suggested that IBS is caused by a bacteria, candiasis, or a virus as well as stress and food allergies. Malabsorption and malnutrition are also associated with IBS.
In most cases if it is treated properly with healthy diet, Oxy-Powder and regular exercise it can be controlled.

The undigested food particles you are seeing are most likely the result of the IBS. We do recommend Flora-Food to help replace the good flora and bacteria.

26) What should I take with Oxy-Powder?

We recommend taking a herbal parasite cleanse which will aid the body in the elimination of any parasites. We also recommend Latero-Flora, even though Oxy-Powder will aid the good bacteria. Because of people's continual food abuse it's always good to reintroduce the good bacteria into the bowel. We have seen the best results with a herbal parasite cleanse, Flora Food and the oxy-powder.

27) If I have internal or external hemorrhoids can I use Oxy-Powder?

If you have an active case of hemorrhoids that are inflamed you will want to wait until the inflammation goes down. We also recommend that you apply the Oxy-Zap which usually reduces the itching, burning and inflammation. When the swelling is down and pain is gone, then start back on half-doses of Oxy-Powder. Please be aware that if you have a history of internal or external hemorrhoids or prolapsed hemorrhoids then we recommend that you begin slowly with Oxy-Powder and realize that the toxic residue that is produced is very acidic in nature and can cause inflammation, pain and swelling.

28) Will Oxy-Powder help with candida?

Oxy-Powder is specifically designed to help clean and provide oxygen in the bowel which supports the natural probiotic strains and in doing this in conjunction with the Flora Food creates an inhospitable environment for harmful microorganisms including candida. Oxy-Powder will definitely help your own body fight an infestation of candida in the bowel. Also the researched benefits of organic Germanium 132 show that it inhibits the growth of candida.

29) Why is Germanium 132 included in the Oxy-Powder?

" Organic Germanium-132" which is made up of the elements germanium, oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. Organic germanium-132, technically bis-beta-carboxyethyl germanium sesquioxide, is also known as Ge-132. High levels of the mineral are found in shelf fungus, ginseng, garlic, comfrey, and watercress. Ge-132 is claimed to have immuno-stimulatory and other health benefits. Germanium has been described as one of the greatest secrets in the field of nutritional medicine. It has been labeled "Good for just about any health condition". Germanium is a mineral with an atomic weight of 32. We are now the only company in the world to provide Germanium with a stabilized oxygen product. Oxy-Powder will now release more oxygen and have a broad range of health benefits.

In animal studies, oral administration of Ge-132 stimulated production of gamma-interferon (gamma-IFN) and activation of macrophages and natural killer cells. [1] In humans, Ge-132 has been claimed to affect T- and B-cell function, natural killer proliferation, and other immune functions. [2] An abstract at the IX International Conference on AIDS in Berlin reported that "organic" germanium may act synergistically with alpha interferon in inhibiting HIV in the test tube.[3]

Ge-132 has no known toxicities.

According to the 'Nutrition News,' "All diseases are attributable to the deficiency of oxygen. The danger of oxygen deficiency in the body can not be overemphasized." Germanium greatly enriches oxygen in any living body. It raises the level of activity of various organs by enabling them to attract more oxygen and expels harmful pollutants and pathogens as well.

Germanium improves the health of the arteries and has a normalizing effect on blood pressure and serum cholesterol levels. It is imperative to take the non-toxic organic form Germanium-132 (germanium sesquioxide) as opposed to other forms of Germanium, which could have toxic effects.

30) Is Oxy-Powder the same as taking MOM (Milk of Magnesia), a magnesium laxative or Epson Salt? Also, my doctor told me not to use Oxy-Powder because it contains too much Magnesium.

First of all dietary magnesium is not the active ingredient in Oxy-Powder. Oxy-Powder contains ozonated magnesium oxide, ozonated magnesium peroxide, germanium 132 and natural citric acid. Milk of Magnesia is magnesium hydroxide which is a saline type laxative; the magnesia acts to pull salts or a saline solution into the intestines from the blood. This excessive fluid from your blood then provides a flushing or laxative action within the intestines. Oxy-Powder does not causes any salt or water to be lost from the body. Products like Milk of Magnesia that actually pull salts out can possibly cause a loss of sodium resulting in an electrolyte deficiency.

Epson salt is magnesium sulphate and is used as a laxative. It is better to use than milk of magnesia and does not have as many side effects. Epson salts however, do not rid the bowel of hard compacted fecal matter and do not provide any monatomic oxygen to the bowel.

Magnesium Oxide (MgO) is not really designed to be a source of bio-available (available for the body to use) dietary magnesium. It is however more bio-available for the body under the following three conditions:

1. The quantity ingested must be so low, say 25 to 50 mg or so that it has little or no effect on stomach pH, allowing for a complete conversion into a magnesium salt of the stomach acids. This is why magnesium citrate is more readily absorbed. The citrate salt is similar to the type of magnesium salt that can be formed by small quantities of MgO in the stomach. Since MgO is basic it will, if taken in quantities of 500 mg or so, have an antacid effect which will not allow the conversion to the salt to proceed. Since Oxy-Powder has a generous excess of oxygen it is even less likely that there can be much, if any, conversion to any form of organic salt. This should be the case even under the most acidic of conditions found in the gastro-intestinal tract until all of the mono-atomic oxygen has dissipated.

2. Magnesium oxide taken in fairly low quantities, under 300 mg, and taken with large quantities of niacin in the form of nicotinic acid, and with amino acids, especially L-Carnitine, can become bio-available. The niacin, together with the amino acids, through a rather complex enzyme assisted series, results in a reaction that can enhance the bioavailability of many minerals, including magnesium. This combination can even help carry the minerals across the blood-brain barrier. Here again, with the excess oxygen especially in Oxy-Powder, it is questionable whether or not such a conversion could actually take place. This means very little if any magnesium would be absorbed by the body. Vitamin D may also increase the absorption rate of MgO.

3. Magnesium oxide taken with a large meal can result in hundreds of reactions with some of them creating magnesium salts, some of which could possibly be absorbed by the body. Even then, most of the Oxy-Powder is not truly bio-available. It usually ends up in the urine making Oxy-Powder a potential treatment for kidney stones. MgO, even when taken with food showed no meaningful change because the kidneys filter MgO out of the plasma. The true test for bioavailability is a blood test measuring erythrocyte Mg concentration not plasma concentration.

31) Can I take Oxy-Powder while fasting?

There are many different types of fasts that one could do and you can use Oxy-Powder during a fast that contains juices or food. We would NOT recommend to take the Oxy-Powder while doing a strictly water and no food fast.
