Could – Hydrogen Peroxide – Be an Ally in Fighting COVID-19 and other viruses?

Dr. Mercola:

Can an inexpensive and easy to administer at-home treatment treat the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2?

According to Dr. Thomas Levy,1 the answer is yes. The remedy in question is hydrogen peroxide, aerosolized in any standard nebulizer.

Originally conceptualized in the early ’90s by Dr. Charles Farr,2,3 hydrogen peroxide treatment can successfully treat most viral respiratory illnesses, including coronavirus. According to Levy:

“While different individuals can be expected to have variable degrees of positive response, this intervention can be anticipated to eliminate eventual fatal disease outcomes in all but the most advanced cases.”

It’s worth keeping in mind that while the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions are at increased risk of serious complications and death, the overall mortality rate of COVID-19 appears to be quite low, and very similar to influenza.4

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Research shows many dental mouthwashes destroy the lipid layer of coronaviruses and reduce the replication of the virus in the throat and salivary glands, making mouthwash a potentially useful prophylactic against COVID-19
  • Mouthwashes that include ethanol, chlorhexidine, cetylpyridinium chloride, hydrogen peroxide or povidone-iodine are especially effective and may even work against any new coronavirus strains that emerge

Dr. Mercola:

New research1,2,3 shows many dental mouthwashes destroy the lipid layer of coronaviruses and reduces the replication of the virus in the throat and salivary glands, making mouthwash a potentially useful prophylactic against COVID-19.

Emerging studies increasingly demonstrate the importance of the throat and salivary glands as sites of virus replication and transmission in early COVID-19 disease. SARS-CoV-2 is an enveloped virus, characterized by an outer lipid membrane derived from the host cell from which it buds.”

Mouthwashes that include ethanol, chlorhexidine, cetylpyridinium chloride, hydrogen peroxide or povidone-iodine are especially effective and may even work against any new coronavirus strains that emerge, as the virus’ lipid envelope remains unchanged even when it mutates into new strains.

Previous research5 has also pointed out that certain mouthwashes, particularly povidone-iodine containing ones, may help minimize the risk of viral infections and upper respiratory tract infections. Listerine and 3% hydrogen peroxide have also been shown to eliminate bacteria from toothbrushes with 100% efficacy.6

Deon Marais (Owner) Comments:

Bound-Oxygen currently sells a “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” 1% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (Stabilised) with a non-toxic vegetable stabilizer. We have found that this is the ideal strength for your mouth and throat, as it is not too strong and not too weak. It works especially well when used for prevention, and at the very first onset of a sore throat, scratchy throat, beginning of tonsillitis. You spray one or two sprays into your mouth, hold it in the mouth mixing it with some saliva and then swallow one to three minutes later.

The strength that is normally suggested works in our experience with Bound-Oxygen Products slightly different than normal Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) as we normally get the same results with a milder solution. The reason for this is that because of our very efficient vegetable stabilizer, our Bound-Oxygen Products does not have a chain reaction in which the Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) impact on each other once it comes into contact with dirt/bacteria/viruses, and so it lasts much longer and so then if you can increase the contact time, then a lower (safer) dose is normally the better option.

Dr. Mercola:

Hydrogen Peroxide Has Multiple Uses

Unfortunately, extended lockdowns have prevented many from seeing their dentist for regular cleanings and other dental work. Social distancing rules and depression may also have contributed to relaxed dental hygiene among many. This is a grave mistake, as your oral health plays an important part in your overall health.
While mouthwash may lower your risk of COVID-19 infection, their “scorched earth” impact can also create an imbalance in your oral microbiome. Twice-daily use of mouthwash has also been linked to an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, so, it may be a good idea to weigh the pros and cons of this strategy.
In “For Optimal Health, Mind Your Oral Microbiome,” Dr. Gerry Curatola discusses the drawbacks of mouthwash and fluoride and the importance of maintaining a healthy oral microbiome. That said, hydrogen peroxide may indeed be an excellent prophylactic and remedy against COVID-19 and other viral illnesses, not just as a mouthwash but also as a nebulized treatment.

Deon Marais (Owner) Comments:

Bound-Oxygen “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” should also work very well for disinfecting your mouth before you stop Social Distancing, we all need to do it, but this is an easy precaution you can do that will make you much safer.

So before getting into meetings/situations where either you or the person that you are meeting will be vulnerable to infections. Examples would be Dentists, Doctors, Hairdressers, etc. But can also be used before kissing, etc.

Bound-Oxygen “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” can also e used to clean your Face Mask or Face Shield, on the outside – the side facing the viruses – just spray it on before you touch it, then wait for it to dry, you want it to stay damp for about one minute or longer.

What to do when someone sneezed or coughed directly on you?

Immediately spray the Bound-Oxygen Throat Spray in your mouth, hold it, mixing it with saliva and swallow two or three minutes later. If you don’t have our product then use other Mouthwash products, as they should also have a chance of helping. And secondly use the Bound-Oxygen Sinus and Hayfever Spray and thirdly use the Throat Spray as a liquid in a nebulizer (Article Below).

Could Nebulizing – Hydrogen Peroxide – Be an Ally in Fighting COVID-19?

Dr. Mercola:

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

In the case of respiratory infections, the nebulizer has the added advantage of delivering the hydrogen peroxide right to the areas most affected by respiratory viruses — your sinuses, throat, bronchial tract and lungs.

How Hydrogen Peroxide Works

Against Viruses

To inactivate viruses with hydrogen peroxide, all you need is a nebulizer with a face mask that covers your mouth and nose that emits a fine mist, and food grade hydrogen peroxide that is diluted to 1% or less if you have any irritation. The microscopic mist, similar to smoke or vapor, can be comfortably inhaled deep into your nostrils, sinuses and lungs.

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom, and it is the additional oxygen atom that allows it to inactivate viral pathogens. Viruses are not “alive” per se. They need a live host in which they can infect live cells that then replicate the viral DNA and RNA. Once a cell is infected, newly replicated viruses exit the cell and move on to the next cell to duplicate the process.So, when we talk about “killing” a virus, we’re really talking about inactivating it by breaking down its structure. This is how mouthwash can inactivate viruses, and why soap works so well. Coronaviruses are held together by a lipid (fatty) coating. Soap, being amphipathic10 — meaning it can dissolve most molecules — dissolves this fat membrane, causing the virus to fall apart and become harmless.


Hydrogen peroxide works in a similar way. Some of your immune cells actually produce hydrogen peroxide to destroy pathogens. By killing the infected cell, viral reproduction is stopped. So, hydrogen peroxide therapy is in essence only aiding your immune cells to perform their natural function more effectively.Hydrogen peroxide is also a key redox signaling agent that creates oxidative eustress.11 Contrary to oxidative stress or oxidative distress, oxidative eustress denotes an oxidative challenge that has positive or beneficial effects and is essential in redox signaling.If you’re already presenting with runny nose or sore throat, Levy recommends using the nebulizer for 10 to 15 minutes four times a day until your symptoms are relieved.

You can also use nebulized hydrogen peroxide for prevention and maintenance, which may be advisable during flu season, or while the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing. Levy notes:12

Deon Marais (Owner) Comments:

Combining the use of Bound-Oxygen Sore Throat and Cough Spray with using a nebulizer is a very convenient alternative as it is very easy to carry the 10ml bottles with you, then use it immediately if you feel your health has been compromised (sneezed or coughed on). Fast action is the key as it is much easier to kill a few bacteria/viruses than after its been multiplying.

The Bound-Oxygen “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” works well in the nebulizer, that is for up to 30min at a time. If you want to go longer, then I suggest you mix in a little water (Reverse Osmosis – water as in bottled water) half/half for a 0.5% this works very well.

Dr. Mercola:

As it is a completely non-toxic therapy, nebulization can be administered as often as desired. If done on a daily basis at least once, a very positive impact on bowel and gut function will often be realized as killing the chronic pathogen colonization present in most noses and throats stops the 24/7 swallowing of these pathogens and their associated toxins.

If daily prevention is not a practical option, the effectiveness of this treatment is optimized when somebody sneezes in your face or you finally get off of the plane after a trans-Atlantic flight. Don’t wait for initial symptoms. Just nebulize at your first opportunity.”

Deon Marais (Owner) Comments:
May Helps with Stopping to Smoke

My theory is the reason it is so difficult to stop smoking/vaping is the sugar content of cigarettes. This then feeds the fungi’s in your lungs, when these fungi’s get hungry they tell you to smoke (this is the short explanation – read more here). This is why vaping with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is so helpful as it kills the fungi in the lungs, so when you feel the craving to smoke, nebulize a 1% Bound-Oxygen “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” instead. This makes stopping smoking much easier, or it at least made it much easier for me.

May helps to bring up the Oxygen Levels in your Blood (%SpO2)

With COVID-19 one of the scary things that can happen is the virus can go into your lungs, this will have the result that the Oxygen (%SpO2) goes down to dangerous low levels that can be catastrophic!

Your reading with the Pulse Oximeter (Costs about R500 – R1200) should be 94 or above. If your levels are below 90 it is reason to seek medical help. My suggestion is that every household should have one of these meters available at all times as it just might save you from calamity. Early warning!

When I start my nebulize session my %SpO2 percentage oxygen in my blood rise quickly – within about 2 minutes – to 98/99 then it stays at this level for about an hour after the end of a 20 minute nebulizer session.

So if you have a nebulizer please test this for yourself, and comment so as to share it with more people.

In times to come I think using a nebuliser will become a comman practise, the following is my suggestions:

  • When arriving at the Doctor/Dentist – wile waiting – or having to arrive 15 minutes earlier, so that the client can lebulize first.
  • Before leaving the house in the morning and again when arriving back, so keep everyone safe in the household including yourself.
  • When arriving at the office/work, and before going into meetings, remember if you have done it before in the same day even 5 minutes will help.

So my recommendation will be to go buy a Nebulizer, every household and business should have at least one. You also get portable Nebulizers and so they can be taken with you wherever you go. Most bigger Pharmacies stock them and they cost between R600 – R3000. I just use one of the cheap ones and it works very well.

A Nebulizer also just use tiny amounts of Hydrogen Peroxide 1% so 10ml will last for hours, so very economical.

What to do when someone sneezed or coughed directly on you?

Immediately spray the Bound-Oxygen Throat Spray in your mouth, hold it, mixing it with saliva and swallow two or three minutes later. If you don’t have our product then use other Mouthwash products, as they should also have a chance of helping. And secondly use the Bound-Oxygen Sinus and Hayfever Spray and thirdly use the Throat Spray as a liquid in a nebulizer (Article Below).

Is Nasal Irrigation More Important Than Hand-Washing?

This is a shortened article of Dr. Mercola, follow this link for the full article – and Then I Deon the owner of Bound-Oxygen then explains what makes our products special, so I do not claim to be objective, as I am a true believer and user of the Bound-Oxygen Product range. This is my disclaimer before we start – and I thank Dr. Mercola for this very informative article on how nasal irrigation can help COVID-19/Flu/Colds.

Dr. Mercola:

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Flushing your sinuses may be an effective way to inhibit the progression of a virus such as SARS-CoV-2 by lowering the viral load in your sinuses
  • Research has demonstrated that nasal irrigation reduces the symptoms and duration of viral illnesses such as the seasonal flu and common cold
  • Nasal irrigation and gargling with hypertonic saline has been shown to reduce the duration of the common cold by 1.9 days and reduce transmission within the household by 35% by reducing viral shedding when done within 48 hours of symptom onset
  • You may also be able to reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 migrating into your lungs by gargling a saline solution or using a povidone-iodine solution such as Betadine Sore Throat Gargle
  • Nebulizing hydrogen peroxide or colloidal silver may be even more effective. A recent review found 0.5% hydrogen peroxide effectively inactivated a range of human coronaviruses, including those responsible for SARS and MERS, within one minute of exposure

By now, you probably understand the importance of hand-washing to prevent the spread of infectious illness. But did you know flushing your sinuses might be an even better way to inhibit the progression of a viral illness such as COVID-19? In an April 20, 2020, article,1 MSN’s Best Life features the recommendations of Dr. Amy Baxter, a pediatric emergency medicine physician in Atlanta, Georgia.

Nasal irrigation, she says, is a rarely discussed strategy that can help reduce the progression of illness in those who have tested positive for COVID-19 infection. In an April 2, 2020, response2 to a BMJ paper about the lack of personal protection equipment on COVID-19 frontlines, professor Robert Matthews also brought up the importance and potential usefulness of oropharyngeal washing to protect health care workers from infection. As reported by MSN Best Life:3

“Nasal irrigation, or a nasal wash, has long been considered an effective way to remove viruses or bacteria from sinus cavities. Baxter has multiple reasons for believing that this approach can be effective in preventing the spread of coronavirus from worsening in a sick patient.”

Why Nasal Irrigation?

As noted by Baxter, researchers have found that the viral load of SARS-CoV-2 tends to be heaviest in the sinuses and nasal cavity. Regularly rinsing your sinuses therefore makes sense since it would help clear out the pathogen and prevent it from gaining a strong foothold and migrating into your lungs.

The age and gender discrepancies observed in COVID-19 also supports nasal irrigation. Children are at virtually no risk from COVID-19, while death rates among the elderly are at their highest. More men than women also die from the infection.

“Children don’t develop full sinuses until teens; males have larger cavities than women, and the cavities are largest [in those] over 70 years,” Baxter notes.

Research has previously demonstrated that nasal irrigation reduces the symptoms and duration of other viral illnesses such as the seasonal flu and common cold.

In one randomized controlled trial,4 nasal irrigation and gargling with hypertonic saline were found to reduce the duration of the common cold by 1.9 days and reduce transmission within the household by 35% by reducing viral shedding when done within 48 hours of symptom onset.

While it has not yet been studied as a preventive method for COVID-19 specifically, there’s reason to suspect nasal irrigation might be helpful.

Baxter points out that COVID-19 death rates in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and Laos have been surprisingly low, and nasal irrigation is common practice in those areas. According to Baxter, some 80% of the Southeast Asian population do it.

How to Irrigate Your Sinuses

Baxter suggests irrigating your sinuses any time you’ve been exposed to an infected individual or test positive for COVID-19. She recommends flushing your sinuses in the morning using a mixture of boiled lukewarm water (8 ounces) and povidone-iodine (half a teaspoon).

Povidone-iodine has been shown to effectively kill not only Klebsiella pneumoniae and Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria, but to also rapidly inactivate SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV, H1N1 influenza virus A and rotavirus after 15 seconds of exposure.5

The mixture used in this study — 7% povidone-iodine diluted 1-to-30, which equates to a total concentration of 0.23% povidone-iodine — inactivated over 99% of the coronaviruses causing SARS and MERS.

Either a neti pot or NeilMed sinus rinse bottle can be used. The water pressure you get from a sinus rinse bottle can provide a more effective flush. If higher pressure is uncomfortable, a neti pot, which relies on gravity, may be a more comfortable choice. In the evening, Baxter recommends flushing your sinuses again with a mixture of:

  • 8 ounces of boiled lukewarm water
  • 0.5 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon table salt

Deon Marais (Owner) Comments:

Bound Oxygen has a Nasal Spray “BO2 Sinus & Hayfever Spray” it is a 0.065% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide product, it is a very mild H2O2, and we have a vegetable stabiliser, so no toxins. When you spray this into your sinuses it kills bacteria, viruses and also neutralise any toxins (hay-fever symptoms) and so is the ideal way to do as an alternative to a Nasal Irrigation.
As our Nasal Spray is so mild, and so well stabilised, there is only a mild burning sensation, that said, if there is no bacteria/viruses/toxins in the sinuses then it will feel as though you just squirted water into the sinuses, and the more bacteria/viruses/toxins it comes in contact with, the more it will burn.
So when you spray the sinuses, and it burns, you spray more often, and when it feels like “water” you spray less often. I spray twice a day, or if I get back into my car and I was in public places – where germs are more prevalent.

Dr. Mercola:

Nebulized Hydrogen Peroxide — Another Prevention Strategy

While gargling and nasal irrigation may certainly be useful, I believe nebulizing hydrogen peroxide or colloidal silver may be even more effective. Dr. Thomas Levy10 has issued guidance11 on how to use nebulized hydrogen peroxide for the prevention and treatment of viral respiratory infections, including COVID-19.0.5% hydrogen peroxide effectively inactivated a range of human coronaviruses, including those responsible for SARS and MERS, within one minute of exposure.

To inactivate viruses with hydrogen peroxide, all you need is a face mask that covers your mouth and nose and a nebulizer that emits a fine mist with properly diluted food grade hydrogen peroxide.

The microscopic mist, similar to smoke or vapor, can be comfortably inhaled deep into your nostrils, sinuses and lungs. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom, and it is the additional oxygen atom that allows it to inactivate viral pathogens.

Coronaviruses are held together by a lipid (fat) envelope. Soap, being amphipathic12 — meaning it can dissolve most molecules — dissolves this fat membrane, causing the virus to fall apart and become harmless.

Hydrogen peroxide works in a similar way. You can find more details about the mechanism of action in my previous article, “Could Hydrogen Peroxide Treat Coronavirus?

Some of your immune cells actually produce hydrogen peroxide to destroy pathogens. By killing the infected cell, viral reproduction is stopped. So, hydrogen peroxide therapy is in essence only aiding your immune cells to perform their natural function more effectively.

Hydrogen peroxide is also a key redox signaling agent that creates oxidative eustress.13 Contrary to oxidative stress or oxidative distress, oxidative eustress denotes an oxidative challenge that has positive or beneficial effects and is essential in redox signaling.

Many studies have looked into the use of hydrogen peroxide against different pathogens. One of the most relevant is a review14 of 22 studies, published in March 2020 in the Journal of Hospital Infection. They found 0.5% hydrogen peroxide effectively inactivated a range of human coronaviruses, including those responsible for SARS and MERS, within one minute of exposure.

If you’re already presenting with a runny nose or sore throat, Levy recommends using the nebulizer for 10 to 15 minutes four times a day until your symptoms are relieved. You can also use nebulized hydrogen peroxide for prevention and maintenance, which may be advisable during flu season, or while the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing. According to Levy:15

“As it is a completely non-toxic therapy, nebulization can be administered as often as desired. If done on a daily basis at least once, a very positive impact on bowel and gut function will often be realized as killing the chronic pathogen colonization present in most noses and throats stops the 24/7 swallowing of these pathogens and their associated toxins.

I Nebulise with the Sinus Product a 0.065% Hydrogen Peroxide if I nebulize for 30 minutes or longer and I nebulize with our 1% Sore Throat product when I nebulize for 5 – 10 minutes.
I think nebulizing Hydrogen Peroxide is the future of being safe, so if you do not have a nebulizer you should really consider getting one, for the home and for the office.
For best protection and prevention I do all three, so I spray the sinuses and spray my mouth with the Sore Throat 1%. This I carry with me and so use it constantly, then I nebulize when I get home.

You can also use nebulized hydrogen peroxide for prevention and maintenance, which may be advisable during flu season, or while the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing. Levy notes:12

Bound-Oxygen currently sells a “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” 1% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (Stabilised) with a non-toxic vegetable stabilizer. We have found that this is the ideal strength for your mouth and throat, as it is not too strong and not too weak. It works especially well when used for prevention, and at the very first onset of a sore throat, scratchy throat, beginning of tonsillitis. You spray one or two sprays into your mouth, hold it in the mouth mixing it with some saliva and then swallow one to three minutes later.The strength that is normally suggested works in our experience with Bound-Oxygen Products slightly different than normal Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) as we normally get the same results with a milder solution.

The reason for this is that because of our very efficient vegetable stabilizer, our Bound-Oxygen Products does not have a chain reaction in which the Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) impact on each other once it comes into contact with dirt/bacteria/viruses, and so it lasts much longer and so then if you can increase the contact time, then a lower (safer) dose is normally the better option.Bound-Oxygen “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” should also work very well for disinfecting your mouth before you stop Social Distancing, we all need to do it, but this is an easy precaution you can do that will make you much safer.

 

So before getting into meetings/situations where either you or the person that you are meeting will be vulnerable to infections. Examples would be Dentists, Doctors, Hairdressers, etc. But can also be used before kissing, etc.

Bound-Oxygen “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” can also e used to clean your Face Mask or Face Shield, on the outside – the side facing the viruses – just spray it on before you touch it, then wait for it to dry, you want it to stay damp for about one minute or longer.

 

Dr. Mercola:

As it is a completely non-toxic therapy, nebulization can be administered as often as desired. If done on a daily basis at least once, a very positive impact on bowel and gut function will often be realized as killing the chronic pathogen colonization present in most noses and throats stops the 24/7 swallowing of these pathogens and their associated toxins.

If daily prevention is not a practical option, the effectiveness of this treatment is optimized when somebody sneezes in your face or you finally get off of the plane after a trans-Atlantic flight. Don’t wait for initial symptoms. Just nebulize at your first opportunity.”

What to do when someone sneezed or coughed directly on you?

Immediately spray the Bound-Oxygen Throat Spray in your mouth, hold it, mixing it with saliva and swallow two or three minutes later. If you don’t have our product then use other Mouthwash products, as they should also have a chance of helping. And secondly use the Bound-Oxygen Sinus and Hayfever Spray and thirdly use the Throat Spray as a liquid in a nebulizer.

For more information please have a look at our website at https://bound-oxygen.com

Combining the use of Bound-Oxygen Sore Throat and Cough Spray with using a nebulizer is a very convenient alternative as it is very easy to carry the 10ml bottles with you, then use it immediately if you feel your health has been compromised (sneezed or coughed on). Fast action is the key as it is much easier to kill a few bacteria/viruses than after its been multiplying.

Bound-Oxygen “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” works well in the nebulizer, that is for up to 30min at a time. If you want to go longer, then I suggest you mix in a little water (Reverse Osmosis – water as in bottled water) half/half for 0.5% this works very well.

May Helps with Stopping to
Smoke

My theory is the reason it is so difficult to stop smoking/vaping is the sugar content of cigarettes. This then feeds the fungi’s in your lungs, when these fungi’s get hungry they tell you to smoke (this is the short explanation – read more here). This is why vaping with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is so helpful as it kills the fungi in the lungs, so when you feel the craving to smoke, nebulize a 1% Bound-Oxygen “Sore Throat and Cough Spray” instead. This makes stopping smoking much easier, or it at least made it much easier for me.

May helps to bring up the Oxygen Levels in your Blood (%SpO2)

With COVID-19 one of the scary things that can happen is the virus can go into your lungs, this will have the result that the Oxygen (%SpO2) goes down to dangerous low levels that can be catastrophic!

Your reading with the Pulse Oximeter (Costs about R500 – R1200) should be 94 or above. If your levels are below 90 it is reason to seek medical help. My suggestion is that every household should have one of these meters available at all times as it just might save you from calamity. Early warning!

When I start my nebulize session my %SpO2 percentage oxygen in my blood rise quickly – within about 2 minutes – to 98/99 then it stays at this level for about an hour after the end of a 20 minute nebulizer session.

So if you have a nebulizer please test this for yourself, and comment so as to share it with more people.

In times to come I think using a nebuliser will become a comman practise, the following is my suggestions:

  • When arriving at the Doctor/Dentist – wile waiting – or having to arrive 15 minutes earlier, so that the client can lebulize first.

  • Before leaving the house in the morning and again when arriving back, so keep everyone safe in the household including yourself.

  • When arriving at the office/work, and before going into meetings, remember if you have done it before in the same day even 5 minutes will help.

So my recommendation will be to go buy a Nebulizer, every household and business should have at least one. You also get portable Nebulizers and so they can be taken with you wherever you go. Most bigger Pharmacies stock them and they cost between R600 – R3000. I just use one of the cheap ones and it works very well.

A Nebulizer also just use tiny amounts of Hydrogen Peroxide 1% so 10ml will last for hours, so very economical.

Could Mouthwash – Hydrogen Peroxide – Be an Ally in Fighting COVID-19?

This is a shortened article of Dr. Mercola, follow this link for the full article – and Then I Deon the owner of Bound-Oxygen then explains what makes our products special, so I do not claim to be objective, as I am a true believer and user of the Bound-Oxygen Product range. This is my disclaimer before we start – and I thank Dr. Mercola for this very informative article on how mouthwash can help COVID-19.

Dr. Mercola:

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Research shows many dental mouthwashes destroy the lipid layer of coronaviruses and reduce the replication of the virus in the throat and salivary glands, making mouthwash a potentially useful prophylactic against COVID-19

  • Mouthwashes that include ethanol, chlorhexidine, cetylpyridinium chloride, hydrogen peroxide or povidone-iodine are especially effective and may even work against any new coronavirus strains that emerge

Dr. Mercola:

New research1,2,3 shows many dental mouthwashes destroy the lipid layer of coronaviruses and reduces the replication of the virus in the throat and salivary glands, making mouthwash a potentially useful prophylactic against COVID-19.

Emerging studies increasingly demonstrate the importance of the throat and salivary glands as sites of virus replication and transmission in early COVID-19 disease. SARS-CoV-2 is an enveloped virus, characterized by an outer lipid membrane derived from the host cell from which it buds.”

Mouthwashes that include ethanol, chlorhexidine, cetylpyridinium chloride, hydrogen peroxide or povidone-iodine are especially effective and may even work against any new coronavirus strains that emerge, as the virus’ lipid envelope remains unchanged even when it mutates into new strains.

Previous research5 has also pointed out that certain mouthwashes, particularly povidone-iodine containing ones, may help minimize the risk of viral infections and upper respiratory tract infections. Listerine and 3% hydrogen peroxide have also been shown to eliminate bacteria from toothbrushes with 100% efficacy.6

Hydrogen Peroxide Has Multiple Uses

Unfortunately, extended lockdowns have prevented many from seeing their dentist for regular cleanings and other dental work. Social distancing rules and depression may also have contributed to relaxed dental hygiene among many. This is a grave mistake, as your oral health plays an important part in your overall health.
While mouthwash may lower your risk of COVID-19 infection, their “scorched earth” impact can also create an imbalance in your oral microbiome. Twice-daily use of mouthwash has also been linked to an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, so, it may be a good idea to weigh the pros and cons of this strategy.
In “For Optimal Health, Mind Your Oral Microbiome,” Dr. Gerry Curatola discusses the drawbacks of mouthwash and fluoride and the importance of maintaining a healthy oral microbiome. That said, hydrogen peroxide may indeed be an excellent prophylactic and remedy against COVID-19 and other viral illnesses, not just as a mouthwash but also as a nebulized treatment.

Nebulized hydrogen peroxide may also help prevent and treat early signs of COVID-19 and other viral infections

How Hydrogen Peroxide Works
Against Viruses

 

To inactivate viruses with hydrogen peroxide, all you need is a nebulizer with a face mask that covers your mouth and nose that emits a fine mist, and food grade hydrogen peroxide that is diluted to 1% or less if you have any irritation. The microscopic mist, similar to smoke or vapor, can be comfortably inhaled deep into your nostrils, sinuses and lungs.

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom, and it is the additional oxygen atom that allows it to inactivate viral pathogens. Viruses are not “alive” per se. They need a live host in which they can infect live cells that then replicate the viral DNA and RNA. Once a cell is infected, newly replicated viruses exit the cell and move on to the next cell to duplicate the process.So, when we talk about “killing” a virus, we’re really talking about inactivating it by breaking down its structure. This is how mouthwash can inactivate viruses, and why soap works so well. Coronaviruses are held together by a lipid (fatty) coating. Soap, being amphipathic10meaning it can dissolve most molecules — dissolves this fat membrane, causing the virus to fall apart and become harmless.
Hydrogen peroxide works in a similar way. Some of your immune cells actually produce hydrogen peroxide to destroy pathogens. By killing the infected cell, viral reproduction is stopped. So, hydrogen peroxide therapy is in essence only aiding your immune cells to perform their natural function more effectively.Hydrogen peroxide is also a key redox signaling agent that creates oxidative eustress.11 Contrary to oxidative stress or oxidative distress, oxidative eustress denotes an oxidative challenge that has positive or beneficial effects and is essential in redox signaling.If you’re already presenting with runny nose or sore throat, Levy recommends using the nebulizer for 10 to 15 minutes four times a day until your symptoms are relieved. You can also use nebulized hydrogen peroxide for prevention and maintenance, which may be advisable during flu season, or while the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing. Levy notes:12
