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. It’s there right now, fighting the good fight as part of your immune system, helping to fight infection. That’s because it’s the substance your white blood cells produce to keep you healthy. It’s also the antimicrobial ingredient in electrolyzed water, which an industrial technology where electricity changes the chemical structure of salt & water into a cleaner & disinfectant as effective as bleach, with 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 agriculture as a biocide for horses. 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. And during the COVID-19 epidemic, hypochlorous acid is the disinfectant being used in South Korea in the “Clean Zones”.
