Over the years I have had many customers and clients that want to try Oxy-Powder®, but are a bit unsure about what their experience would be like using an oxygen based colon cleanser. In order to make sure that factual information about Oxy-Powder® is given, below are the top 37 FAQs about Oxy-Powder Colon Cleanser – all in one easy to find place. If you have a specific question about Oxy-Powder®, feel free to ask in the comment’s section below the article.
First, especially for those who are not be familiar with Oxy-Powder® and its benefits, let’s talk briefly about what it does and what makes it different from other colon cleansers on the market.
What is Oxy-Powder Colon Cleanser and Why Is It Different?
Oxy-Powder® Intestinal Cleanser is the result of unparalleled research and development in ozone, superoxide and ozonide technology used to create a powerful oxygen based colon cleanser which slowly releases monatomic oxygen to the intestinal tract and body. Oxy-Powder® is a gentle colon cleanser that is safe and effective and naturally resolves occasional constipation without using chemical and herbal laxatives. Oxy-Powder® has been clinically tested to safely relieve the bloating, gas and constipation associated with an unhealthy diet.
As you probably know, there are many colon cleansers on the market today, but most of these colon cleansing products are either chemical or herbal-based. The herbal colon cleansers usually contain specific herbs such as senna or Cascara Sagrada as well as other individual herbs. Psyllium husk, which is a fiber bulk-forming agent, is also a popular ingredient in many colon cleansers. All of these herbs are most likely being sourced from China or India and can be contaminated with toxic substances. However, the primary concern is that none of these ingredients can be used on a regular basis, especially one, two, or three times a week without causing possible long term or even irreversible harm to your intestinal lining. Oxy-Powder® is usually used for a five to seven day colon cleanse. After initial cleansing, a maintenance dose of Oxy-Powder® can be used several times weekly with no harm to the intestinal lining.
Your Top 37 FAQs about Oxy-Powder Colon Cleanser
1. How do I use Oxy-Powder®?
Oxy-Powder® can be used as an intestinal cleansing agent or to relieve the symptoms of constipation. Start by taking 4 capsules of Oxy-Powder® in the evening on an empty stomach with a full 8 oz. glass of water. If you do not achieve 3 to 5 bowel movements the following day, increase your dosage by 2 capsules each night until you achieve 3 to 5 bowel movements the following day. Once you determine your effective dosage, this will count as Day 1 of the 6-Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse. You will maintain this dosage for seven consecutive days. After the Optimum Wellness 6-Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse, take the maintenance dose as desired.
Use the same dosage you used for your 6-Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse every other day or as needed. This maintenance can be performed indefinitely without it becoming habit forming or harmful to the body. Plus, taking regular doses of Oxy-Powder® helps supply your entire body with oxygen for improving physiology, vitality, and performance.
We suggest drinking large amounts of pure water. Hydration is not only healthy for the body but will aid it in eliminating toxins from the bowel at a faster rate. Oxy-Powder® works with your body’s HCL (stomach acid). If your level of HCL is below normal, it may hinder the effectiveness of the Oxy-Powder®. We suggest squeezing the juice from an organic lemon wedge into an 8 oz. glass of purified water taken with Oxy-Powder® in the evening.
2. Should I follow any particular diet while taking Oxy-Powder®?
Yes. Eat a healthy live food based diet. In addition, increase the amount of purified water you drink. Try to avoid any carbonated beverages, caffeine, and alcohol. Reduce your intake of sugar, fried foods, white flour, dairy, etc. Our recommended diet is fresh organic fruit in the morning, an organic salad and an organic carbohydrate source for lunch, and a low calorie and low protein (organic) meal for dinner.
3. Will I be able to go to work during the Oxy-Powder® cleanse?
It’s best to start the Optimum Wellness 6-Day Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse on a Friday evening. This way you will more likely have access to a bathroom for longer periods of time. Continuing the Optimum Wellness Oxygen Colon Cleanse should be manageable so long as you have a restroom nearby at work or school. If you are going to the bathroom 5 to 7 times a day or more, you can reduce the daily dosage by two capsules. If you decide to do this, increase the cleanse length from 6 days to 9 – 10 days.
4. Is Oxy-Powder® a powder or is it a capsule?
Oxy-Powder® comes in capsule form. The capsules made of vegetable cellulose and are kosher certified Vegetarian. Oxy-Powder® is not available in a loose powder form. However, you may empty the contents of the capsules into purified water if you have trouble swallowing capsules. You can also follow this link (look under ingredients) to learn more about the ingredients in Oxy-Powder®.
5. How will I know when my bowels are clean and the old compacted fecal matter is gone?
Everyone’s results differ depending on their diet, exercise patterns, and age as well as physical and emotional stress levels. The frequency of your bowel movements will usually begin to diminish as the digestive tract rids itself of toxic matter. The stools may still continue to be loose or semi-solid, however, due to the oxidation process.
At this point the nascent oxygen will be available for the body to absorb through the capillary walls in the intestinal lining thereby aiding the body in the purification of the blood, organs, and lymph system. However, to ensure you continue to stay as clean inside as possible, you should eat only live, raw fruits and vegetables and completely eliminate the intake of all toxins.
Because the Standard American Diet (SAD) is so poor, we believe you will need to cleanse on a continuous basis to help keep the entire intestinal lining clean. Therefore, we recommend a continued maintenance dose every other evening at the minimum. Use your bowel activity as a guide. You will know how “clean” you are by the color, consistency, and frequency of your bowel movements.
As the intestinal tract is becoming cleaner, the color of the bowel movement should be much lighter and transit time (time from eating to elimination) should be shorter. You should also be experiencing more frequent, healthy, softer, and smoother bowel movements. The oxygen released by Oxy-Powder® is helping to kill all kinds of anaerobic bacteria.
Some people will notice a foul smell in the initial stages of cleansing. Over time, there should be a noticeable decrease in foul-smelling bowel movements. A normal and healthy bowel moves in a timely manner, with the “product” being lighter in color, relatively smooth, and also slick in appearance.
6. Can I take Oxy-Powder® while fasting?
Many different styles of fasting exist. If your style allows you to consume small amounts of juice or certain foods, then you can safely use Oxy-Powder® while fasting. We would NOT, however, recommend taking Oxy-Powder® during a fast of strictly water and no solids or other liquids.
7. I have trouble swallowing capsules. Is there an alternative way to take Oxy-Powder®?
Yes. You can open the capsules and mash the contents in with a banana, or you can pour them into a glass of purified water. The latter method does not mix especially well, may cake a bit and the taste is bitter. We do not recommend mixing Oxy-Powder® with anything else.
8. Am I going to be stuck in the bathroom all day long?
For the first few days, depending on your weight and how many capsules you take, you may need to stay close to a bathroom. If you are experiencing more than 7 bowel movements per day, then we suggest reducing the dosage by two capsules daily until you are experiencing the recommended 3 to 5 bowel movements daily. Some people have a lot of compacted fecal matter and may not have a bowel movement until the 2nd or 3rd day, but this delay is quite normal. Each person’s results will be different. Please give Oxy-Power® a minimum of 5 days to do its job. After all, you probably spent years if not decades slowly building up the toxic waste in your digestive system and it may take a little time to break down.
9. Will Oxy-Powder® affect my body’s acid-alkaline balance?
The overall effect of Oxy-Powder® on the body should be mildly alkalizing. The magnesium compounds are alkaline and the natural citric acid actually raises the alkalinity in the body. To the contrary, there may be a temporary elevation in the acidity of the bowel itself while cleansing as many of the toxins removed can be quite acidic. Oxy-Powder® actually removes the acidic material from the body and helps to prevent re-absorption through the intestinal lining. The ingredients in Oxy-Powder® will not negatively affect the body’s ability to achieve an alkaline state for optimal health.
10. How long should I continue to take Oxy-Powder® after the initial cleanse?
We recommend that you continue on Oxy-Powder® maintenance for the rest of your life to help you achieve and maintain optimal health. Many studies indicate a great number of adverse health conditions start in the intestinal lining and colon. That’s where we get the term, “health begins in the colon.”
It’s extremely beneficial to continue the maintenance dosage every other day after the initial cleanse to maintain a healthy bowel. With the poor food options we’re faced with today, it’s a good idea to always keep the intestinal lining and colon as clean as possible. Finally, the amount of oxygen in the air we breathe has been declining steadily over time. This means everyone on the planet is oxygen deficient. Therefore, we also recommend taking Oxy-Powder® regularly to help supply your body with vital oxygen.
11. How often should I repeat the Oxy-Powder® cleanse?
This all depends on what your diet consists of and how well you generally feel. We recommend repeating the Optimum Wellness 6-Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse using Oxy-Powder® every 3 months if any of the following conditions apply:
- If your diet regularly includes processed or fast foods, coffee, soft drinks, and/or alcohol
- If you’re experiencing constipation or if you’re compacted
- If you do not exercise regularly
Even if you stay on a maintenance dose and improve your diet and exercise routine, you should still repeat the Optimum Wellness 6-Day Oxygen Colon Cleanse every 6 months to help maintain optimal health.
12. Does Oxy-Powder become less effective or stop working for some people? I have taken it in the past, but I’m no longer getting the same results.
This “adaptation” is sometimes the case with supplements, drugs, and various treatments. Just as elite athletes begin to develop muscle memory and must constantly vary their routines, the body can adapt and begin to respond to supplements differently or with less intensity.
Oxy-Powder® works with a two-pronged approach. Primarily, Oxy-Powder® oxidizes compacted fecal in the intestines. Second, the magnesium oxides will cause a relaxing effect on the smooth muscles surrounding the bowels. This direct interaction between the oxygen released by Oxy-Powder® and the fecal matter compacted in the bowel does not vary. That being said, it doesn’t mean your body won’t respond differently because of the particular situation or physical condition that you may find yourself in on any given day. Numerous factors can affect your elimination habits, including: the quality of your digestion, your emotional state, your sleep patterns, and various other bodily functions.
These factors also change the effectiveness of Oxy-Powder® because they can alter the efficiency with which you process the food you eat, the type of communication your nervous system has with the bowel, as well as numerous other daily habits. The following is a partial list of factors that may affect an individual’s response to Oxy-Powder®, even if they have taken the product in the past with good results:
- Stress: This affects the entire body and can restrict all of the “housekeeping” functions, including elimination.
- Diet: Changing what you eat and possibly consuming a food to which you are allergic or intolerant.
- Exercise: Regular exercise promotes elimination and can increase the effectiveness of Oxy-Powder® even within a single day.
- Stomach acid: The reaction that generates oxygen from Oxy-Powder® is dependent on the amount of hydrochloric acid in your stomach. Decreased acid levels due to lack of production or medication can dramatically affect how well it works.
- Medication: Many medications list constipation as a side effect. Consumers taking medications should always consult their physician prior to taking any dietary supplement.
- Dehydration/low fluid intake
- Travel or other disruption of daily habits
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Pre-existing bowel disease
- Recent surgery or other medical procedure
- Low thyroid or other thyroid conditions
- Vitamin-B deficiency
- Taking iron supplements, including many ferrous sulfate supplements
13. Why is my Oxy-Powder® a slightly different color than usual? Have you changed the formula?
This is a common question regarding most natural products. Synthetic products typically appear identical from batch to batch. These are usually coated with dyes and waxes that make them appear uniform. Natural products tend to show slight variations in color and consistency because naturally-sourced ingredients show some variation. The small change in appearance will have no effect on the effectiveness of the end product.
In the case of Oxy-Powder®, we keep samples of each batch made and periodically test them to ensure there is a uniform potency. In addition to the color differences in the powder itself, the vegetable capsules are also slightly different from batch to batch. The thickness of the capsule can vary minutely on any given capsule. In the manufacturing industry, this is referred to as tolerance.
Thicker capsules will appear a little darker or more yellow while thinner capsules will appear lighter and clearer. The difference is so slight it normally has no effect on the ability of the capsule to dissolve. Despite any changes in appearance, we have made no changes to our formulation except where clearly stated. We continue to utilize only the very best fully organic and safe ingredients, obtained from the same sources as always, and we also have not changed the way in which Oxy-Powder® is manufactured.
14. I recently noticed a slight change in the Oxy-Powder® formula. How did it change, and do I still need to take the same amount as I did before?
Oxy-Powder® has recently undergone a small but significant change in its formulation. You will notice there is now a greater amount of Ozonated Magnesium Oxides per serving compared to the previous formulation. This represents an increase in the amount of oxygen we are able to bond to the Magnesium Oxides, which is better for you. This is because 4 capsules of our newer and more efficient formula will now produce even more monatomic oxygen to help clear compacted waste away from the intestinal lining. If you have previously used Oxy-Powder®, you may find you are able to decrease your dosage and still achieve the same wonderful results. In non-scientific self-testing of this new formula on ourselves, we found the individual dose was decreased by one capsule on average.
15. Is Oxy-Powder® habit forming?
The bowel will not become dependent on Oxy-Powder® unless you have had previous bowel surgery, bowel muscle dysfunction, or permanently damaged bowels resulting from Hirschsprung’s disease. With Hirschsprung’s disease, the nerves going to the bowel have been permanently damaged or destroyed. It is a very common disease affecting millions of people. However, conventional doctors do not routinely diagnose it.
We believe permanent damage to nerves within the bowel can be caused by:
- Chronic constipation
- Lack of exercise
- Poor diet
In some cases, it might seem Oxy-Powder® is habit forming but we believe this is because the individual already has a pre-existing, undiagnosed bowel dysfunction.
16. Can I take Oxy-Powder® every day?
Oxy-Powder® is safe to use every day, although we recommend taking the product every other day.
17. What research has been done to prove Oxy-Powder® safe for continuous use?
Oxy-Powder® will NOT cause bowel dependence, but if a pre-existing bowel dysfunction is present then it may seem as though Oxy-Powder® is continually needed. What is really happening is the Oxy-Powder® is actually helping the bowel to do a job which it has previously been unable to do. This should not be termed as dependence but actually giving needed help to the intestinal system to rid itself of harmful toxins and compaction, thereby reducing the load that the already dysfunctional intestinal tract has to handle.
Some of people have been on Oxy-Powder® continuously for 10 years or more and they are very healthy. There are a lot of causes of chronic constipation, and the damages caused by chronic constipation can sometime be very hard to repair. A permanently damaged bowel is called Hirschsprung’s disease – which means the nerves going to the bowel have been permanently damaged or destroyed. Although conventional doctors do not diagnose it, Hirschsprung’s disease is a very common disease affecting millions of people.
Other causes of nerve damage and constipation in the bowel include:
- Iron supplements
- Low Thyroid hormones
- Kidney malfunction
- Cough syrup
- Heart medication
- Calcium carbonate supplements
Oxy-Powder® can be used continually if needed.
18. Why am I not having bowel movements on the days that I am not taking Oxy-Powder®?
The bowel muscle is like any other muscle in the body and needs to be exercised. This happens through the body recognizing the urge to eliminate. When you are constipated your body is not recognizing that urge. This will allow, with time, the elimination of fecal matter on the days you are not taking Oxy-Powder®. We want to not only help you with your constipation issues but also help you learn to eliminate on your own. Again, keep in mind this will be different with those individuals already experiencing bowel disorders.
19. Can I take Oxy-Powder® while using prescription medications?
As far as we know there are no contraindications when taking Oxy-Powder® with prescription meds as long as the Oxy Powder is taken 6 hours before or 6 hours after the medicine. Still, it’s always best to check with your health care professional before adding any supplement to your regimen.
20. I am experiencing loose stools and am quite concerned. Is this diarrhea?
Oxy-Powder® will cause watery, gaseous stools. This is not clinical diarrhea; it’s the byproduct of oxidation. The causes of diarrhea are usually temporary problems such as an infection or virus, or chronic problems such as an intestinal disease. A few of the more common causes of diarrhea are:
- Bacterial infections transmitted through contaminated water or food including Campylobacter, Salmonella, Shigella, Escherichia coli, viral infections, rotovirus, Norwalk virus, cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus, and viral hepatitis
- Lactose intolerance
- Parasites such as Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, and Cryptosporidium
- Reactions to prescription medications, such as antibiotics and blood pressure medications
- Intestinal diseases, like inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome and celiac disease
Remember Oxy-Powder® is turning solids into a liquid or gas. To assist the cleansing process, it’s advised to drink half of your body weight in ounces of purified water daily while taking Oxy-Powder® even though there has never been a documented case of dehydration or electrolyte imbalance. To figure out your body weight in ounces, please divide your body weight in half. (For example, if you weigh 140lbs. then you should drink 70 ounces of water.)
21. Should I be concerned with dehydration while using Oxy-Powder®?
To our knowledge there has never been a case of dehydration or electrolyte deficiency while using Oxy-Powder®. We recommend drinking half of your body weight in ounces of purified water daily while taking Oxy-Powder® to help flush the oxidized toxins from the bowel. It might seem like you have diarrhea but this is just the hard matter which has been reduced to a liquid form.
22. What symptoms might I experience while taking Oxy-Powder®?
You may experience watery, gaseous stools, noisy bowel sounds, or some temporary cramping due to gas build-up while taking Oxy-Powder®. If you experience cramping for longer than two days then switch to the daily schedule; take two capsules 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. You may increase or decrease the dosage as necessary. Other side-effects may include mild headaches or temporary joint pain. All will resolve as soon as the toxins are expelled from the body. If you are experiencing bouts of constipation, bloating or gas then you may also be suffering from the symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome, an over-growth of yeast or harmful invading organisms and microbes.
Oxy-Powder® releases monatomic oxygen, which has been shown in lab tests to kill forms of fungus, yeast and bacteria. The oxidation of the compacted toxic material along with the possible deaths of harmful microorganisms, yeast and fungus from the monatomic oxygen can be absorbed back into the bloodstream through tiny holes (resulting from years of damage) in the intestinal lining.
This flushing of toxins may cause you to experience temporary cramping, draining sinuses, fatigue, skin eruptions and insomnia. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please give Oxy-Powder® at least thirty days to help balance your intestinal system.
23. Can I use Oxy-Powder® while pregnant or nursing?
Please do not use Oxy-Powder® during the first trimester. After the first trimester, please consult with your health care practitioner before using Oxy-Powder® during pregnancy or while nursing. Most doctors feel comfortable recommending Oxy-Powder® to their pregnant and nursing patients, but in a reduced dosage they will help you determine.
Generally, the recommended dose is half of the suggested dose. In some cases, taking Oxy-Powder® while breastfeeding may have caused the baby’s stool to become loose, if this happens, the mother should reduce her dosage until the baby’s stool return to normal.
24. Is Oxy-Powder® safe for children?
Parents should consult their physician regarding use of any dietary supplement by their children.
25. I have been diagnosed with IBS and am noticing undigested food particles in my stool even while taking Oxy-Powder®. Shouldn’t Oxy-Powder® melt this also?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common digestive disorders, affecting 1 out of every 5 adults in the world today. IBS is also called intestinal neurosis, mucus colitis, spastic colitis, or spastic colon. With IBS, the normal contractions of the bowel become irregular and uncoordinated, thus interfering with the normal movement of food and waste material. With IBS, you can experience an accumulation of toxins and mucus in the intestines which can partially obstruct the bowel thereby causing bloating, distention and constipation.
IBS can affect the entire gastrointestinal tract from the mouth to the rectum. It′s commonly suggested that IBS is caused by a bacteria (candiasis) or a virus as well as stress and food allergies, however, it must be noted there are many causes of IBS. Malabsorption and malnutrition are also associated with IBS. The undigested food particles you are seeing are most likely the result of the IBS.
In most cases, if addressed with a healthful diet centered on the consumption of raw vegetables and fruits, purified water, organic wheat breads, and bereft of fatty meats, sugary sweets, and salty snacks, with plenty of regular exercise, and by taking advantage of a quality colon cleanser like Oxy-Powder®, the symptoms can be managed proactively so you can enjoy a normal lifestyle. We also recommend taking a probiotic supplement such as Floratrex™ to help replace your beneficial intestinal flora.
26. If I have internal or external hemorrhoids can I still use Oxy-Powder®?
If you have an active case of inflamed hemorrhoids, you will want to wait until the inflammation goes down before taking an intestinal cleanser. Once the pain and swelling subside, it should be safe to start back on a half-dose of Oxy-Powder®. Please be aware that if you have a history of internal or external hemorrhoids, or especially prolapsed hemorrhoids, we recommend you begin slowly with an Oxy-Powder® regimen. Also, realize that the toxic residue is very acidic in nature and may cause additional inflammation, pain, and swelling.
27. Will Oxy-Powder® help with candida?
Oxy-Powder® is specifically designed to both help clean and provide oxygen to the bowel. This supports the natural probiotic bacterial strains helping your digestive system process food. By using Latero-Flora™ in conjunction with Oxy-Powder®, you can help create an even less hospitable environment for harmful microorganisms like candida. Organic Germanium-132, a key ingredient of Oxy-Powder®, has also been shown to discourage the growth of candida. Oxy-Powder® can help your body re-balance its internal environment within normal levels. A healthy digestive system is naturally unwelcoming to unwanted bacteria, yeast, and harmful invading organisms of all kinds.
28. I have Celiac disease and am very sensitive to products containing gluten. Is it safe for me to take Oxy-Powder®?
Oxy-Powder® is gluten-free and should not cause any adverse reaction in people with gluten sensitivities. The experts believe it′s best to avoid all commercially produced or processed breads, especially so-called wheat breads with the words “enriched” or “bleached” in the ingredients list.
For an organic alternative, we highly recommend Food for Life’s Ezekiel 4:9® “Organic Sprouted Whole Grain Products” are an excellent place to start as they provide several truly whole-wheat breads that are healthful and delicious as well. Also, Food for Life offers gluten-free high fiber bread for individuals that are allergic to this substance. By comparison, breads that are low in fiber include many common white breads, breads advertised as whole wheat but containing low grams of fiber per slice (such as contrived items like “white wheat”), and breads high in sugar or sodium content. It is advised that you avoid anything with the words “enriched white flour” listed as an ingredient.
29. I have an overgrowth of candida, can I do the Oxy-Powder starter cleanse with the fruit?
Candida thrives when processed foods and sugars are consumed, fruit will only feed yeast if mixed with other foods and is allowed to ferment in the bowel. If you are choosing to follow the suggested diet on the 6-day cleanse by eating fresh and organic fruit, the sugars (Fructose) from organic fruit are natural to the body. Fruit is broken down very rapidly by the body (usually within 20 minutes), this will help with both elimination and providing proper nutrition. We have seen the best results during the Oxy-Powder Starter cleanse with the recommended suggested diet, and feel this should also work well to help alkalize the bowel.
30. How is it possible to liquefy impacted material inside the colon without also liquefying food that is not fully digested?
We recommend taking the product at night on an empty stomach so there won’t be a large amount of undigested food. The nutrients in food are absorbed from the food itself very rapidly in the upper part of the duodenum, the leftover food particles including the toxins are what is left and get liquefied or neutralized.
Oxy-Powder® will liquefy undigested foods, but the whole point is to clean the lining and provide oxygen to the intestinal cells so they can breathe and better absorb vital nutrients in the future.
31. I am not having any watery movements as mentioned on your site. Is there something else I should be doing?
Oxy-Powder® works with the body’s own hydrochloric stomach acid. If you have low levels of HCL, then the effectiveness of Oxy-Powder® could be hindered. We recommend squeezing a quarter wedge of organic lemon into the water you drink at night with Oxy-Powder®. This will ensure your body has enough extra acid to facilitate the Oxy-Powder® reaction.
If after doing this you do not see results then switch to the daily Oxy-Powder® regimen. Take 2 capsules with lemon water 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s also recommended that you walk briskly 30 minutes each day.
32. I have not seen any mucoid plaque or black colored stools like those mentioned in some of the testimonials on your site. Is this abnormal?
There’s a lot of controversy regarding mucoid plaque. MP is not actually a recognized medical diagnosis nor is it a scientific term in any medical manual. There are pictures floating around on the Internet which show a ropey, black intestinal mass. We believe these photos were taken from a medical examiner after an autopsy.
We don’t mention MP on our websites. Instead, we use the term “compacted fecal matter,” which Oxy-Powder® will dissolve and eliminate.
As far as the color of your bowel movements, this can vary from person to person. The color and consistency of stools can be affected by stress, dietary habits, exercise, and alcohol or caffeine consumption. The important thing is the regularity of your bowel movements, not the color.
Please keep in mind that testimonials are based on individual experiences and should never be treated as guidelines.
33. Will I lose weight while using Oxy-Powder®?
This product is not specifically intended for weight loss. While some people have reported weight loss ranging from 5 to 20 pounds when using Oxy-Powder®, this is not actual loss of body fat or muscle tissue, but is due to the elimination of stored, hard-compacted fecal matter throughout the entire length of the intestinal tract.
34. What makes Oxy-Powder® so different from other colon cleansers?
What makes Oxy-Powder® so unique is its ability to clean the entire 25 to 30 feet of the digestive tract. It’s designed to clean, oxidize and reduce the amount of hard impacted fecal matter in the small intestine, large intestine and colon. Other cleansers focus on the colon and stimulate mucous production instead of breaking down hard fecal matter.
As a colon cleanser, Oxy-Powder® adds oxygen into the bloodstream and bowel and does so in a natural and non-toxic way. The average person by the age of 40 has between 10 to 20 pounds of hard compacted fecal matter lodged in their intestinal tract. Our intestinal tract is 25 to 30 feet in length and if you cut it open and spread it out, the surface area is the size of a tennis court. In order to clean the digestive tract you must turn that solid compaction into a liquid or gas, using time-released oxygen (oxidation/reduction). This is exactly what Oxy-Powder® does.
By using Oxy-Powder® you can melt away or oxidize the compaction from the small intestine, the large intestine and the colon safely and effectively. This is important because a clean intestinal tract is an essential step in achieving optimal health.
35. Does Oxy-Powder® work the same way as milk of magnesia, magnesium laxatives or Epsom Salts?
First of all, dietary magnesium is NOT the active ingredient in Oxy-Powder®. Oxy-Powder® contains ozonated magnesium oxide, ozonated magnesium peroxide, Germanium-132, and natural citric acid. Milk of magnesia is magnesium hydroxide which is a saline type laxative. The magnesia acts to pull salts or a saline solution into the intestines from the blood. This excessive fluid from your blood then provides a flushing action within the intestines. Oxy-Powder® does not cause any salt or water to be lost from the body. Products like milk of magnesia that actually pull salts out can possibly cause a loss of sodium resulting in an electrolyte deficiency. Epsom salts is magnesium sulphate and is used as a laxative. It’s better to use than milk of magnesia and does not have as many side effects.
Epsom salts however, do not rid the bowel of hard compacted fecal matter and do not provide any monatomic oxygen to the bowel.Magnesium Oxide (MgO) is not designed to be a source of bio-available (available for the body to use) dietary magnesium. The following situations could increase the bioavailability of MgO in Oxy-Powder®:1. The quantity ingested must be so low, say 25 to 50 mg or so that it has little or no effect on stomach pH, allowing for a complete conversion into a magnesium salt of the stomach acids.
This is why magnesium citrate is more readily absorbed. The citrate salt is similar to the type of magnesium salt that can be formed by small quantities of MgO in the stomach. If taken in quantities of 500 mg or so, MgO will have an antacid effect which will not allow the conversion of the salt to proceed. Since Oxy-Powder® has a generous excess of oxygen it is even less likely that there can be much, if any, conversion to any form of organic salt. This should be the case even under the most acidic of conditions found in the gastro-intestinal tract until all of the monatomic oxygen has dissipated.2. Magnesium oxide taken in fairly low quantities, under 300 mg, and taken with large quantities of niacin in the form of nicotinic acid, and with amino acids, especially L-Carnitine, can become bio-available. The niacin, together with the amino acids, through a rather complex enzyme assisted series, results in a reaction that can enhance the bioavailability of many minerals, including magnesium. This combination can even help carry minerals across the blood-brain barrier.
Here again, with the excess oxygen produced by Oxy-Powder®, it is questionable whether or not such a conversion could actually take place. This means very little if any magnesium would be absorbed by the body. Vitamin D may also increase the absorption rate of MgO.3.
Magnesium oxide taken with a large meal can result in hundreds of reactions with some of them creating magnesium salts, some of which could possibly be absorbed by the body. Even then, most of the Oxy-Powder® is not truly bio-available; it usually ends up in the urine. MgO, even when taken with food showed no meaningful change because the kidneys filter MgO out of the plasma. The true test for bio-availability is a blood test measuring erythrocyte Mg concentration not plasma concentration.
36. Should I take Oxy-Powder® with Bentonite clay, Psyllium, or other forms of fiber, to be certain everything gets cleaned out?
A number of individuals have reported using Oxy-Powder® in conjunction with Bentonite and Psyllium supplements and have achieved good results, but that doesn’t mean those other substances made Oxy-Powder® more effective or that they are harmless. Fiber is a necessary part of the diet and if you’re not receiving enough fiber from the foods that you’re eating, we agree some additional form of fiber would be beneficial. The Editors of this site strongly advise against taking Psyllium or any herbal based fiber supplement.
The best way to obtain additional dietary fiber, which is what you want, is simply to include more fibrous foods in your meals. High fiber foods include: whole wheat (unprocessed) bread and pasta, green leafy vegetables, unsalted nuts and grains, fresh fruit and raisins, beans, lentils, and unbleached brown rice.
However, from our observations and in actual clinical trials, Oxy-Powder® has demonstrated it can assist the body unaided by helping the colon purge toxins and heavy metals and by promoting an unwelcoming environment for harmful bacteria within the digestive tract.
Oxy-Powder® doesn’t need any help to do what it does other than having you drink purified water or adding a little lemon juice to the same if your stomach pH isn’t acidic enough.
37. What else should I take with Oxy-Powder®?
We recommend taking a probiotic supplement, such as Latero-Flora or Floratrex™. Even though Oxy-Powder® on its own aids in cultivating the right bacteria in the intestinal tract, it never hurts to introduce additional beneficial bacteria. We have seen the best results from using the Latero-Flora in conjunction with Oxy-Powder®. Learn more about the benefits of probiotics.
