Several decades of scientific studies and research were necessary to develop this famous detoxification technology by ionized particles. The idea of alternating positive ionic charges (cations) and negative ionic charges (anions) during the same session is based on a process called “iontophoresis”, a curative method approved by the FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) in 1970. Iontophoresis is the scientific name referring to an approach using a low electrical current in order to stimulate the body. This current is then transformed into ionized particles which, after penetrating the skin, reunite with free radicals in the blood, thus forming a new compound conducive to a therapeutic interaction.
In 2003, a Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded to two American scientists, Peter Agre and Roderick MacKinnon, for the discovery of a system of ionic channels in cellular membranes. These ionic channels produce electrical signals that enable the absorption of certain nutritional elements and fluids through the cell walls. This knowledge of the structure and function of membrane proteins (aquaporins) and of water and ionic channels enables a better understanding of the communication between cells and their environment through the principle of osmosis. Membrane potential and ionic currents determine the effectiveness of such a transfer. This system of channels maintains the balance between bioelectric distribution of nutrients and toxins inside and outside the cell through the membrane.
A well-known fact nowadays is that numerous symptoms associated with premature aging are, in one way or another, linked to low cell hydration which leads to acidification of the cells. The variable level of these factors has the effect of reducing the natural ability of the cell to repair and clean itself and properly reproduce.
