Like most people, you are probably wondering what is HOCl? This naturally occurring substance is called Hypochlorous acid. Don’t let the word “acid” scare you. It simply means that it is slightly acidic as compared to pure water (pH7). This completely non-toxic substance produced in the human body is truly a “Miracle” of nature. Without it, we may not have survived as a species!
“In 1834, French chemist Antoine Jérôme Balard discovered HOCl as the infection-fighting compound found naturally in the white blood cells of the human body. Balard’s work would most notably used thereafter by armies in World War I and World War II for wound cleaning and to neutralize chemical burns.”
HOCl is more than an “infection-fighting” compound
Although HOCl has been known for centuries, most people have never heard of it. The reason for this is straightforward. This is because it is made by “neutrophils”, a specific type of white blood cell. It is the result of millions of years of evolution and is present in all animals that have white blood cells, not just humans. In its natural form, it protects the animal that produces it from invasion of pathogens but also stimulates involved cells to “heal” themselves. This is why it is so important.
However, its effects are very short-lived. When removed from the body it quickly reverts to its component molecules, and thus loses its healing properties. But this is no longer true… Due to the recent advent of “Electro-Chemical Activation” (ECA) hypochlorous acid can be made in a far more STABLE form that can remain effective for long periods. At Curativa Bay this is the only product we offer, and it is of the highest quality and purity.
Hundreds of documents from some of the best-known academic institutions and hospitals have universally demonstrated that HOCl has unparalleled anti-pathogenic properties in scientific trials.
As such, it is considered to be the most powerful anti-pathogenic substance known to science. Hypochlorous Acid is known to destroy or deactivate EVERY virus, bacteria, and fungus in addition to non-living pathogens such as “prions”. This includes all variants of COVID, RSV, HPV, and influenza that dominate recent news… keep in mind HOCl is completely non-toxic to humans. This is why we think of it as a MIRACLE.

Many believe that HOCl is the same as “bleach” (sodium hypochlorite). It is not! Although both can be used as “disinfectants” they are not the same. HOCl is many times more effective than bleach at disinfecting…and bleach can be toxic.
“HOCl is surprisingly effective at very low concentrations. It takes only a very small amount of HOCl to effectively kill bacteria and viruses and destroy proteins like inanimate pet allergens in comparison to higher pH bleach-based products. Despite this outstanding ability, it is also gentle on surfaces, and when no additional ingredients like surfactants or detergents are added to the final formula, HOCl solutions leave behind minimal residue. Evidence of this is demonstrated by the HOCl-based solutions on the market that are EPA approved as food contact sanitizers. These products do not require a rinse step when used on surfaces that come into contact with food.”
