Why do we want to remove deuterium from our bodies?
Deuterium exists in our bodies naturally. It contributes to growth, energy storage and metabolism. However, too much deuterium interferes in biological processes and over time, it is known to damage the mitochondria (the ‘powerhouses’ of cells) causing cellular dysfunction, damage to DNA, aging and low metabolism. Deuterium accumulation is also thought to contribute to a rise in cancer and metabolic diseases.
The human organism can deplete some deuterium itself, but the body’s ability to do that decreases with the age, if weakened by illness, or deficient in Vitamin D. So how can we remove excess deuterium from our bodies? There are several tried and tested methods which include regulating our diet, improving sleep quality, exposure to sunlight and cold, taking regular exercise, and of course, drinking DDW.
