Bacta-Rid is an approved, hospital-grade, antibacterial, disinfectant spray and fogging mist, which kills germs and a broad range of bacteria and viruses including Staphylococcus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella Typhimurium, Bacillus cereus, Listeria monocytogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Serratia marcescens, Vibrio Parahaemolyticus and SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19).
How does it work?
Our body has its own defence known as white blood cells that use HOCL (Hypochlorous Acid) and other compounds to combat foreign invading microorganisms like bacteria, fungi and viruses.
These white blood cells (also known as neutrophils) respond to any tissue invasion by migrating to the site of infection. Neutrophils seek out these invading microorganisms, surround and eliminate them by injecting them with cytotoxins containing HOCL naturally made in you body. This process is known as phagocytosis.
HOCL is a weak acid that is formed when chlorine (a gas) dissolves in purified distilled water. Paradise Nutrients uses it as an active ingredient in sanitisers and disinfectants (Bacta-Rid) because of its ability to break down bacterial and viral cell membranes, the same way HOCL is used by your immune system white blood cells to breakdown bacterial and viral cell proteins and inject cytotoxins into the invading cells to kill them off.
Please don’t get mistaken that Chloride is the same as the chemical Chlorine. The difference between chlorine and chloride is that chlorine is a chemical whereas chloride is known as a negative charged ion in living organisms. HOCl is generated by the reaction of hydrogen peroxide with chloride ions under the catalysis of the heme enzyme myeloperoxidase (MPO).
Bacta-Rid has been developed with ability to stabilise the bonding process and fortify the concentration so that the HOCL liquid solution remains active for at least 12 months after manufacture.
