In the process of electrochemically activation of water with electrolysis are obtained catholyte and anolyte. The device is called electrolyzer and is separated into two parts with
a semi-permeable membrane. In the two sections are put two electrodes with direct current. These are cathode and anode for the waters catholyte and anolyte.
The properties of anolyte and catholyte are measured with pH and Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP). The indicator pH gives information about the acidity and alkalinity of the liquids. Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is associated with electron transition processes. There is a dependence between oxidation-reduction processes and antioxidant.
The physical-chemical properties of the catholyte and anolyte determine their activity. The optimal values for catholyte for ORP are (-200 - -400 mV) and for pH (8.5 – 9.5). For the anolyte they are (+500 - +600 mV) and for pH (3.5 – 4.5).
The following processes take place in the two sections of the electrolyzer.
In the cathode section:
(1) 2H2O + 2e- → H2 + 2OH- .
The hydrogen gas that is produced separates, and the water obtains an alkaline reactivity.
The catholyte has reduction properties and there is an increase in the number of the electrons according to the control sample and negative ORP.
In the anode section
(2) 2Ð2Ðž → 4Ðµ- + 4Ð+ + Ðž2
The separated hydrogen ions and oxygen molecules lead to an increase in the acidity of the anolyte.
The anolyte has oxidation properties and there is decrease in the number of the electrons according to the control sample and positive ORP.
The values of pH and ORP of the catholyte and anolyte after certain amount of days following the water activation, change in different ways during the time. The catholyte preserves its high alkality (pH > 8.9) for about a week, but its oxidation-reduction potential changes rapidly and becomes almost zero after the second day. On the contrary, the corresponding values of the anolyte change insignificantly (about 10%) after almost a year.
The indicated properties give unique acting properties of the activated water. During the process of electrolytic decomposition particles or components are created that cannot exist outside the solution. The increased quantity of monomolecules causes changes in viscosity, diffusion, thermal and electrical conductivity, the surface tension and the catalytic activity of the catholyte and anolyte.
Water is the natural and necessary medium for most biological molecules. Changes in its composition and structure can have stimulating or inhibitory action on the processes in the living things. The increased catholyte reduction leads to increased antioxidant effects on bio
molecules. Due to this reason the catholyte has protective and positive effect for oxidation stress-connected diseases such as diabetes, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and side effects accompanying hemodialisys. There is stimulation of immunology system. Clinical examinations carried out by different scientists have demonstrated positive effect in cases such as difficult healing wounds, diabetes of type 2, telomere shortening at the cancer cells and inhibition of their growth, suppression of side effects caused by the use of anticancer medications, favorable influence on the blood system. Investigations have proved that the activated water was not toxic for cells and tissues, and did not have mutagenic, cancerogenic, embryotoxic or immunotoxic effects.
The high oxidation of the anolyte has a strong biocidal effect on various microbes, bacteria and viruses, which leads to their retention or complete destruction. Rapid healing of wounds and inflammation, suppression of herpes and rhinitis viruses, etc. are observed. Anolyte completely eliminates Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli bacteria in in vitro experiments.
About the mechanism of action of catholyte and anolyte
The mechanism of influence of activated water on the living matter is not quite clear. The observed anomalous properties of this water could directly or indirectly be referred to one or other activity, but for the present a full explanation of the process is not still available. Generally, the explanations concern the high alkalinity of the catholyte and the antioxidant effect in bio molecules, and the high acidity of the anolyte and the increased acidity stemming from this. Some observations of the authors suggest that the following hypothesis could take place. The catholyte obtained during the electrolysis has a different hydrostatic pressure than the blood plasma i.e. it is hypertonic relative to it. This will intensify increased flowing of intracellular liquid which contains oxidized substances resulting from the cell metabolism. Thus, the cell waste cleaning will be stimulated.
According to the authors, the unique properties of the catholite and the anolyte can be explained by hydrogen Ð+ ion. It has oxidizing and reducing properties. This makes it possible to achieve a balance of oxidation / antioxidant against reactive oxygen species (ROS) and free radicals. In cancer, the intracellular water is acidified. The catholyte is alkalinized and, due to its higher surface tension and viscosity, separates the adhering erythrocytes. Free electrons have an antioxidant effect on biomolecules. There are evidence for the improve the quality and quantity of erythrocytes. This will lead to an improvement in immune system status.
