How It Works
The main ingredient in Virus Protect+ is Chlorine Dioxide ₍₅₎: a powerful disinfectant that reacts rapidly via oxidation to provide effective impact against viruses, bacteria, fungi, algae, and some parasitic microorganisms.
It works by targeting key amino acids found in the protein wall of microorganisms ₍₆₎, some of which are: cysteine, methionine, tyrosine, and tryptophan. This disables the microbe’s ability to penetrate another cell ₍₄₎, which renders them incapable of mutating or reproducing, and consequently eliminates them altogether ₍₇₎.
And because those amino acids play a crucial role in all living systems, including microbes, it is impossible for any microbe to develop a resistance against Chlorine Dioxide ₍₆₎.
developing all Virus Protect+ products, we partnered with TwinOxide ₍₈₎, the most advanced system in the world that exists today to water disinfection. According to the CDC, Chlorine Dioxide is added to drinking water to help protect people from harmful bacteria and other microorganisms ₍₉₎, and is included in the WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality ₍₁₀₎.
The FDA has allowed its use as a food additive in the disinfection of vegetables and fruits ₍₁₁₎ and in poultry processing ₍₁₂₎. Furthermore, the EPA recognizes Chlorine Dioxide use as a disinfectant ₍₁₃₎, and it has been approved for agricultural, commercial, industrial, medical and residential use.
There have also been studies that show how some traditional cleaners have been related to the development of adverse health effects, including asthma ₍₁₄₎ and even infertility ₍₁₅₎. Compared to other common household cleaners, Virus Protect+ is a cleaner and safer alternative. Chlorine dioxide rapidly breaks down in air ₍₉₎ when exposed to sunlight; additionally, it does not produce harmful residues or byproducts ₍₇₎, making it safe for humans, animals, and the environment.
