Microcluster® Silica, the active ingredient in MegaHydrate®, has been shown in numerous published scientific studies as an antioxidant compound. The negatively-charged hydrogen ions react with free radicals to neutralize the harmful effects of the radicals. These free radicals, more correctly called reactive oxygen species (ROS), if not combated, accumulate in the body and create an environment called oxidative stress.
The problem with some antioxidants lies in the nature of chemical reactions in that the substance that reacts to neutralize the free radical becomes a radical, sometimes toxic to the cell and the cells around it. Phi Sciences’ published research, conducted in-house as well as by prestigious universities, shows that the unique formulation and chemistry of Microcluster® Silica ensures sure that no toxic byproduct is created.
Specifically, Microcluster® Silica has been tested for effectiveness against the most harmful, as well as abundant, ROS including, but not limited to, singlet oxygen, superoxide, and hydroxyl radicals. In all the tests, Microcluster® Silica not only eliminated the ROS by neutralizing them, but did not become a radical itself and did not create any toxic environment. The byproduct of most of the reactions between Microcluster® Silica and a radical is water. *
Comparing the effectiveness of Microcluster® Silica on ROS to other natural, and even synthetic, antioxidant compounds clearly shows that Microcluster® Silica is 800% more effective than either Green Tea or Grape Seed Extracts.

Physicians, clinicians, and nutritionists, are recommending that diets contain more antioxidants. Research to date shows that Microcluster® Silica, the active ingredient in the Phi Sciences products MegaHydrate®, are more powerful than any other known antioxidants. *
