How EBO2 May Protect Against Glyphosate-Caused Sickness

If you have been following the news, then you know that glyphosate, more commonly known as the main herbicide in the weed killer Roundup, has been linked to a number of cancers and other health-related problems. Unfortunately, glyphosate is found everywhere, including the food chain and water table. In the U.S. alone, farmers used 300 million pounds of glyphosate in 2018; this is essentially a pound for everyone in the United States.

Glyphosate is stored in the body in place of glycine, meaning it is found in the bones, tissues and organs. Glyphosate is so dangerous because it disrupts the gut microbe and also disrupts glutathione production in the body. This powerful herbicide works by selectively killing beneficial bacteria such as bifidobacterium and lactobacilli that plant and animal health depend on, and at the same time it enhances the activity of serious pathogens such as clostridium, phythothera, pithium and rhizoctonia. These are the pathogens that kill the plant.

Interestingly, glyphosate will not kill plants in sterile soil since the offending bacteria are not present. Glyphosate herbicides kill plants by inhibiting an enzyme called EPSPS, which is part of a well-known series of biochemical reactions known as the “Shikimate Pathway”. The Shikimate Pathway is responsible for the synthesis of certain amino acids that are vital for the production of proteins, which are the building blocks of life. Thus, when the synthesis of the amino acids is blocked by glyphosate’s inhibition of EPSPS, the plant dies.

Humans and other animals do not have the Shikimate Pathway in the cells that make up their bodies, so industry regulators claimed that glyphosate is non-toxic to humans. Sadly, we’ve learned this isn’t true.

What the regulators don’t mention is that many strains of gut bacteria do have the Shikimate Pathway. The effects on the gut bacteria via the effects on the Shikimate Pathway lead to a significant change in the gut biome. The result is an imbalance causing a decrease in the ratio of beneficial to harmful bacteria.

These imbalances in gut bacteria have been linked with many diseases, including cancer, diabetes, obesity and depression. At PUR-FORM, we are very cognizant of this fact and many times recommend custom-blended probiotics for our patients.

Another big problem is that glyphosate also chelates important body minerals such as cobalt, iron and manganese, depriving the body the use of these compounds. And the list of negative health effects involving glyphosate continues:

  • Glyphosates inhibit cytochrome P450 enzymes which are important in the synthesis of many beneficial substrates
  • Glyphosates harm estrogen and testosterone production
  • Glyphosates are detrimental to fatty acid and sterol creation
  • Recent research shows that glyphosates also have negative effects on the mitochondria
  • Glyphosate disrupts the electron transport chain reducing the production of ATP
  • Glyphosate increases the formation of free radicals

In short, glyphosate is horrible for humans.

The good news is that EBO2 may help the body eliminate or at least mollify the glyphosate menace. This is because ozone will destroy the glyphosate molecule and degrade it. It does this by direct oxidation and indirect oxidation via the hydroxyl groups which ozone helps generate.

Remember, in the EBO2 process, ozone itself is a powerful oxidizing agent and at the same time it gets converted when reacting with the blood plasma into hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The hydroxyl groups (OH) are also very efficient in naturalizing the glyphosate.

At the same time, EBO2 helps to generate glutathione production, which is a master anti-oxidant.

Ozone is so important because it has the powerful ability to break down the chemical structure of many types of organic compounds and turn them into carbon dioxide, water, and other types of harmless compounds. Due to the difficulty of removing pesticides, technicians have long sought to attempt removal by chemical oxidation.

Scientists have gradually come to realize the importance of the role of ozone in such a process. The chemical reaction between ozone and pesticides helps to split apart the pesticide molecules and change them into non-toxic compounds. Ozone has been used for years to remove pesticides from fruits and vegetables. What we are doing with EBO2 is not much different.

There are also a few things we can add to EBO2 treatment to make it more potent:

  • Glycine: Glycine competes with glyphosate at glycine receptor sites, prevents uptake and storage, enhances production of glutathione and aids liver detox.
  • Kelp: Kelp binds glyphosate and other toxins and reduces leaky gut.
  • Pectin: Pectin binds pesticides and toxins in the gut including DDT, gives prebiotic support for microbiome balance and gut wall and also reduces leaky gut.
  • Fulvic Acid: Fulvic acid binds glyphosate and other toxins, supports microbiome and gut wall, reduces leaky gut, supports detoxification and enhances mitochondrial function.

The final question is: Who should consider getting an EBO2 treatment to help eliminate glyphosate?

The answer is: Everyone!

Since glyphosate is in our food chain and water supply (even if you are eating “organic”), nobody is immune to its harmful effects.

An EBO2 treatment may make all the difference and your gut bacteria and mitochondria will thank you!
