Hypochlorous Acid Uses that Might Surprise You
Hypochlorous Acid Uses You Might Never Have Heard Of
Hypochlorous acid– if you’re like most people, you’ve never heard of it, despite the fact that it’s in your body. As in right now, fighting the good fight. And by that we mean the fight against infection, because it’s the substance your white blood cells produce to keep you healthy. It’s also the active antimicrobial ingredient in electrolyzed water, which an industrial technology where electricity changes the chemical structure of salt, water & vinegar into a cleaner & disinfectant as effective as bleach, with absolutely no harmful chemicals. Because of this, hypochlorous acid uses are on the rise and you may be surprised at some of them! (hint: they’re not all cleaning-related)
You might be surprised to learn that your immune system’s fighter, hypochlorous acid, is actually a type of chlorine. It’s so gentle that it’s FDA approved for use in wound care and eye care products and is also common in veterinary care. It’s also used in the UK in agriculture, as a biocide for horses and in dental care. It can kill E. coli and salmonella on contact with no harmful residues, which makes it ideal for food applications. It’s FDA approved for use in produce preservation and USDA approved for organic crop production. There has been extensive research on the gentleness and efficacy of hypochlorous acid. It’s so effective that hospitals use it as a disinfectant in both the US and Japan.
