Welcome to Trulyfit the online fitness marketplace connecting pros and clients through unique fitness business software.
Steve Washuta: Welcome to Trulyfit. Welcome to the Trulyfit Podcast where we interview experts in fitness and health to expand our wisdom and wealth. I am your host, Steve Washuta, co-founder of Trulyfit and author of Fitness Business 101. This is our water week, both episodes the Monday and Thursday episodes are going to be about water.
Today I speak with Victor Sagol offski, who is the co-founder of light water, you can find everything about light water scientific at drink light, that’s lite water.com. Victor is very knowledgeable and very passionate about his DD W which stands for deuterium-depleted water. What is deuterium? Well, it is an isotope of hydrogen, it’s also known as heavy hydrogen, he’s going to go into the science behind this.
The reason why I wanted to have Victor on is that I know even 25 years ago, the President of the United States didn’t have a smartphone in his pocket. And now everybody in the country, and probably third-world countries has a smartphone in their pockets, technology moves quickly, and we can’t really see what’s on the horizon and how fast these things come about.
And when I heard about this, I thought, You know what, this could be something who knows 1015 20 years that everybody knows about, and it becomes more mainstream. I am going to tell you to do your due diligence. This is not my area of expertise. I think it’s interesting. I’m not promoting it. This is just an educational podcast. Victor is going to talk about what deuterium depleted water is and exactly why it can be beneficial for you, especially if you’re somebody who is an optimizer, and how it’s made, which I think is the most interesting thing, what the studies say that this does or does not do in your body.
He is a wealth of knowledge surrounding this topic. And he is super passionate you can tell he’s dedicated his life and his time and his energy and his efforts to light water scientific to this deuterium depleted water. And it’s not about making a ton of money. It’s not about making this mainstream even because it’s really difficult to do that by the process of water, you’ll hear Victor talk about that. It’s about explaining to people how they could potentially benefit from this from just a pure health perspective.
And Victor again was a wealth of knowledge. It was really fun talking to him, I will tell you that in advance. It’s mostly him talking. It’s not me asking a lot of sharp questions, because this is not a subject in which I can come up with a lot of creative, intelligent questions. So I really let him steal the floor here and explain the products.
If you’re interested again and learning more about this go to drink light li te water.com. With no further ado, here is Victor. Victor, thank you so much for joining the Trulyfit podcast, why don’t you give my audience and the listeners a little background on who you are and what you do in the health and wellness fields?
Victor Sagalovsky: Of course. Hi. Great to be on your show. My name is Victor. I have been in the health and wellness space probably for 30 years. So I’m a co-founder of Litewater scientific, which is what we’re going to be talking about today, which is a company based around a new science that’s been developing called deuterium depletion.
Victor Sagalovsky: So I’ve been a citizen scientist all my life and started out my early 20s and culinary arts, essentially, I figured out soon as I figured out that, that doctors weren’t gonna make me better. When I was sick as a teenager, I made some really important connections, and one of them was you are what you eat. So in my early 20s, I started the very first organic raw food restaurant in the United States, or at least, I think one of them.
Victor Sagalovsky: And that led me on a path of inquiry basically at that point, I was an armchair nutritionist, so I figured out what works for the human body, what worked for me, and how to replicate it and create optimal health for people. So I’ve been after this for a long time, this state of optimal health. So 2004 I read an article called In Search of the fountain of youth and he talked about this deuterium isotope, which I knew very little about, I only knew it from chemistry as something that’s a version of hydrogen known as isotope as an isotope.
Victor Sagalovsky: So, you know, you have the periodic table, we all learn that in school and then the very first element in the periodic table is hydrogen. And then, at some point, we may or may not have learned that hydrogen has other forms. It has a form known as deuterium and a form known as tritium. These are all types of hydrogen, the only difference is the hydrogen that is 99.98% of the universe is the one that’s an electron and a proton. And then deuterium has an extra neutron. So tritium, we don’t talk about too much because it barely exists unless you’re conducting atomic blast testing.
Victor Sagalovsky: So we have this small amount of deuterium. And so in 2004, I read this article which pointed me in the direction that this may be something that we should take a look into because this could be an underlying cause of aging. And when you look at aging as we understand it, it is a decrease in the amount of energy that we have, right? As our cells replicate as our DNA replicates a copy or copy of a copy or copy, each time it does it, there’s less energy in the system. So essentially, as you get old, you have less energy. And that’s essentially what we see at a mitochondrial level.
Victor Sagalovsky: When we start out very young, let’s say a cell has 1000s of mitochondria in it, maybe 20,000 or 50,000, depending on what cell it is. And that same cell, when you’re a senior citizen, by the time you’re a senior, at same cell has maybe 10% or less of the mitochondria that it did when you were younger. So mitochondria is responsible for making the energy in our body. And so we have this problem where we’re slowly going down after we peak, we go down and so 1% A year after a certain age, some say 23, some say 2627, whatever it is, in our 20s into our mid-30s.
Victor Sagalovsky: We look at different biomarkers as we age, and we see that there’s a gradual 1% On average decrease in cognitive ability, cardiovascular function, collagen, I mean, you just, you know, it goes on and on and on. And that is that’s aging. So, so I was looking at how we intervene with this aging process and slow it down and make it more gradual.
Victor Sagalovsky: So being a citizen scientist, I look at everything, not only do I study what comes out academically, but I look, I just look at it every three, nine, because I’m a crease or my entire life seeking the truth, right? The truth is what works. And so what is the truth? Or what would they teach in school, but, but you get incomplete pictures, and then it’s up to us to put that picture together completely. So that’s, that’s what I’ve undertaken as my endeavor.
Steve Washuta: And you explain, you explain what deuterium is, and where it comes from. But explaining about the water component, how is this involved in water? What should the average person if fcwc least right? am I expecting to have a lot of the Purium? Or a little deuterium is a do we need more of it? Or do we need less of it?
Victor Sagalovsky: Okay, so I’ll cut to the chase. We have too much deuterium on this planet right now. We have. So if you look at a liter of water, a liter of water is how many drops of water, you know, it’s 20, it’s 20,000. So your take out of that 20,000 drops, the drinking water on this planet has an average of six drops in that water. That’s not h2o, right?
Victor Sagalovsky: Because we know water is h2o. That’s how we learn. But that component that has determinate is H DL, or H O D where that hydrogen is replaced by its bigger and less useful cousin, deuterium. So six drops. So that liter of water is this deuterium. And this gets into everything this gets into our food. This gets into, you know, it’s prevalent on the planet.
Victor Sagalovsky: And so the theory goes as part of this new science known as due to nomics, which is endeavors to explain how deuterium is managed by the body and by eukaryotic or oxygen-breathing cells. So the issue here is that when we evolved, we had less deuterium on this planet. So the ideal for our bodies is about 120. In that range, or fewer parts per million as measured. We measure it through saliva, you can measure breath vapor. And you can measure any bodily fluid. But on average, you want to be in the 120 range. The population of humanity is over five, or so. I think it’s close to 7 billion people now or more. It has a deuterium level of 150.
Victor Sagalovsky: On average, some people have more, which makes them chronically ill, and live a lot shorter, and some have a lot less, which is based on the geography in which they live. And now based on the drinking water that we produce. So the goal is to lower your deuterium level. And when you lower by 15 to 20 25%, you experience something that cannot be experienced any other way. Because what you’re getting is a net energy benefit. By allowing more oxygen to be utilized, how does more oxygen get utilized?
Victor Sagalovsky: Well, where your ATP is healthier produces when your mitochondria is healthy and produce more ATP more efficiently and there’s less damage on these motors, these mitochondrial motors, these factories, these power plants, and ourselves. Then you have an optimization that increases the net energy that you have. So deuterium is the opposite. You could say of its brother hydrogen. Because hydrogen is the element that was responsible for creating all life on the planet. In fact, it’s responsible for how stars shine. It’s responsible for rocket ships and the fuel they use to get outer space.
Victor Sagalovsky: And deuterium is the opposite. It’s the gum that stuck to your shoe. It’s complete, it’s now there’ll be some controversy on this. No one has been able to challenge this when I say it’s completely useless. I don’t really see any benefit unless you’re using it as a neutron moderator and an atomic reaction. But in the body, deuterium. It when you look at how the body or nature uses deuterium. You see that there’s something very common in nature, and that’s a hydrogen-carbon bond, right? We’re more carbon beings, we run on hydrogen.
Victor Sagalovsky: So naturally, you see carbon-hydrogen, and that’s a bond, that’s a very important bond that exhibits itself and so many molecules in nature, okay. That hydrogen bond with carbon, when you replace that hydrogen with deuterium. Then you have a deuterium carbon bond, right? And that disassociation of that bond is nine times slower. Your body can’t do the work that it needs to do, which happens this quick, very fast, it cannot jump those quantum gates like it does, which is a separate subject when it has deuterium attached to it.
Victor Sagalovsky: So nine times slower disassociation with deuterium. So it’s, it slows us down, it slows us slows down our biology. And when you slow down something and take away its energy, what happens? You get errors, you get errors in transcription. And that’s why we look older as we get older, you know, we get we look older, too. So
Steve Washuta: are there objective studies about this? It sounds like you’re citing a lot of things. Are you doing these studies on your own? Is your company doing these studies? Who
Victor Sagalovsky: I’m citing, I’m citing all the literature that’s out there right now. Myself, I would only cite things that are qualitative, because I have not been able to quantify anything. Because I’m not doing studies right now. But there are 60-plus years of literature, and a lot of it is phenomenal if you tap into it. So I’ve tried to put up all that into one cohesive place where depository. Where a lot of those studies exist. But the proof is in the pudding, because people that tell me that so so what we did is. My partner, we knew about this deuterium problem, we saw that we looked at the science, we saw that it was legit, these look legit.
Victor Sagalovsky: And, and so we started this company, and started making determine we started importing to tear him up to water. And so why? Oh, there’s the subject of how, how difficult it is to make this product. Yeah, that’s what I was gonna ask expensive to do it offshore, or we’re not in the UAE. Now. I mean, there’s this subject matter. But the point is that we looked into this. We said, this might be something that is a higher level intervention, this may be an upstream solution, there are not many of these upstream type solutions where everything down have its benefits.
Victor Sagalovsky: So when we started in 2019, a company we’re importing and selling and marketing this water that works with the science, this concept that when you drink the water, you reduce the deuterium load in your body, you decrease that totalitarian burden in your body. And then you have more energy and other things, obviously, downstream of that. But the energy benefit is so profound because it manifests itself not like adrenal energy, right? It’s a different type of mitochondrial energy.
Victor Sagalovsky: It’s a source of energy that, because is it the source, it, it, it plugs itself into places where this type of caloric energy that we derive daily doesn’t go. So like a repair for one and deep level kind of restructuring? Because when your body is a self-healing organism, it’s just missing that one component. Energy?
Steve Washuta: How does one test themselves for this? Is it expensive to test yourself? I know you, you mentioned there are a few different ways whether this
Victor Sagalovsky: whole like this whole lifestyle is I’ll tell you this whole lifestyle that expensive because we didn’t think you know, nobody thought that we’d be paying 320 or more dollars per month for water. But here we are. And that’s because it’s difficult to produce. It takes a lot, it takes a lot of energy. And to remove that component, because you’re separating water from water. It’s a very, it’s like HDL from h2o.
Victor Sagalovsky: So we make a small amount of this water available for people in the United States. And you can test your deuterium. It’s a $200 test, you can test your saliva, you can test your water to. Maybe you live somewhere in the mountains of Idaho and you’re really curious to see if your water is like anything special. It is if you’re there, and because there are certain places on the planet. Where you’re going to find 15 to 20%, lower deuterium than the rest of us are drinking and when you look at the populations of those areas, you see that they’re far healthier. There are superior and healthy compared to people that are living coastally.
Victor Sagalovsky: And that’s because Oh, the net benefit, the net energy benefit over time, you know, this is a delta over time, that really makes a big difference. So what people do is they, they get on the program. Then they in two to three months, you could drop your deuterium levels into the 120 PPM range or lower.
Steve Washuta: Why does the public know more about this? Do you think
Victor Sagalovsky: it hasn’t been available for very long at all, if you try to buy a liter of deuterium-depleted water, 15 years ago, you would pay 1000 bucks, you know, it’s just not wasn’t available, and the science was available. And that knowledge of deuterium. Even as far back as 1953, when they started investigating deuterium, they, American scientists concluded and I quote, incompatible with life.
Victor Sagalovsky: So we have a little bit of it of this in us, you know, we have maybe a gram and a half, you know, maybe a gram to two grams and a human body but, but when you compare it to how much of basic nutrients that we have, that we need for life, like glucose, magnesium, potassium, calcium, you have a lot more five times or more deuterium because it’s bound to everything and, and when it gets into our motors, it jams up, it causes them to stutter, no energy is produced, it slows us down.
Victor Sagalovsky: So So we recognize this problem. And just because you know about a problem doesn’t mean it’s going to get popular. Because you have to have a solution. And so we have a solution. Like I said, it’s expensive, it’s something you do continuously. But even a little bit goes a long way in terms of benefits. So
Steve Washuta: do you think the larger beverage and water companies will eventually take this on? Or do you think it’s just too pricey for them right now. Why do you think they’re involved in this process?
Victor Sagalovsky: They, maybe in the decade or so, because for one, you can’t make much of it, that you can’t, it’s not that interesting to large consumer kind of big business because it’s just, it just can’t make that much of a period. You know, we have, a big factory of ours. We don’t make that much, you know, we make enough for a few 1000 People. Consider that you want to change the world with millet, giving this water to millions of people, you’d be better off telling an iceberg from Antarctica that has water that’s at nine parts per million, which isn’t an anomaly on this planet, but it’s phenomenally good for health but in the future,
Victor Sagalovsky: I think better technologies will come out because a small market that we’ve started now stimulates innovation and somebody will create maybe it could be us somebody will create some a way to do it that’s more economical, this water will be cheaper to produce. Certainly, it takes a while for things to get known about. Has to be validated or at least considered by mainstream science.
Victor Sagalovsky: And so this is all starting right now. We’re very new on this. It’s very exciting because I lecture to a lot of doctors. They can’t argue against it because it’s a mechanical problem. See that this has been known about for 60-plus years. But it wasn’t until 2007 that Dr. Gu Olgun actually did the work and discovered you may be nominated for a Nobel Prize one day. Discovered how deuterium damages specific really how it damages the mitochondria in these motors known as ATP synthase motors which is the smallest motor in nature.
Victor Sagalovsky: It’s nanoscopic and it spins close to 9000 rpm it uses hydrogen protons to spin these motors the energy currents body at and create metabolic water which is already 70% deuterium depleted. So he discovered the mechanical room. The terrarium damaged the motor and it is a mechanical problem. It’s too big for it. It’s a square peg in a round hole every 15 seconds. That motors these trillions of motors that we have in our bodies that it’s producing our energies working overtime, okay? They are impinged upon instead of a proton by a proton-neutron pair, which is a deuteron.
Victor Sagalovsky: And this causes the motor to stutter and break down. And this is one of the reasons why we age it’s not the only reason we age. But I think we’ve discovered something so profound it’s going to be it’s going to go down as one of the greatest discoveries in biology is this deuterium problem. And it was overlooked because when you look at it doesn’t seem like much like I said, six drops and 20,000.
Victor Sagalovsky: But when you look at it deeper, like Dr. Rogan did, or Dr. Burrows, who coined the term due to nomics and is the leading authority in the world on this new science, this new biochemistry, peer-reviewed no less. And you start seeing things that fill in a lot of answers to questions that didn’t have any and when You start considering deuterium and biochemistry, a lot of those gaps, a lot of those missing, links get filled in. So it’s very exciting
Steve Washuta: is the profile change to this water meaning does the taste or the viscosity or anything change when you take this out?
Victor Sagalovsky: The only difference in our water is, well, there are a few differences, but people can replicate those. But what makes our water different is it’s known as super, super deuterium depleted water, super light water, meaning that it’s over 90%, reduced, and deuterium. So we make a 94 to 97% reduced water, which is 10 or five ppm. Now, some will say that our water does taste very good. It’s a very interesting anomaly because our water is distilled water.
Victor Sagalovsky: For all intents and purposes, we don’t add minerals back into it, we let you do that. So we have a water that’s so pure it tests to mega ohms, which is purely just like lab-grade water, meaning it has no ionic activity, meaning you can’t even measure the pH of it because there’s nothing, there are no minerals in there to measure pH with. So it’s completely inert water.
Victor Sagalovsky: Typically, when you have such lab-grade pure water, it doesn’t taste very good. But for some reason, our water tastes great, it really does taste phenomenal, and tastes very pure, very light. But the only difference really, when you consider our water and other waters other than its purity, which anybody can replicate, you cannot replicate the fact that it has 94 to 97% Less deuterium. And that’s the difference that we’re going for.
Victor Sagalovsky: Because there’s a mechanism known as hydrogen exchange when you drink water, you expel water through sweat, breath vapor urine. When you put it in water, there’s less deuterium, and you will let go of some of your material. So about half a ppm or one ppm per day, roughly. So that’s the whole reason why you drink the water because it through the mechanism of hydrogen exchange, you lower your deuterium level.
Victor Sagalovsky: And that’s the intervention here that we’re talking about. This is the big biohack that is the crown on your Christmas tree. It really is everything, everything else is just downstream of it. Because there’s nothing else that creates a net energy benefit, all food will eventually create will be will be a deficit. So this is why we age we’re constantly in a state of ongoing entropy, right? Everything that spins up, has to eventually spin down.
Victor Sagalovsky: And that’s the entropy part, which we don’t really care for too much. So we want to become superconductors. We want to have no decay of spin ever we want to be coherent superconducting beings. In order to do that, we have to keep our energy levels up. energy levels up, keep contaminants from coming in. And this is the oldest widest contaminant that we have on this planet to the natural contaminant. It’s known as deuterium. Have they disguised as age? Do
Steve Washuta: they figured out why the deuterium levels let’s say in Idaho, are less in the water than maybe in New Jersey? Is it elevation is it time is it
Victor Sagalovsky: it’s the hydrological cycle. It’s the condensation cycle evaporation condensation cycle and is a little complexity to it, which allows for a reduction of deuterium in places that are away from the hydrological cycle of the ocean. So the eastern slope of the Sierras, you’re going to get maybe almost 10%, lower deuterium than you will on the coast. So on the western slope, we won’t be the same because it’s closer to that weather pattern.
Victor Sagalovsky: You’re also going to have lowered deuterium based on elevation and latitude because that condensation precipitation and evaporation cycles will be magnified or amplified. And that also is better removing a little bit of deuterium. So this was first discovered in the early 1950s. And then, so in the 50s. There were the Siberian scientists, these Russian scientists, and Soviet scientists at the time, they were trying to figure out why these populations, these two Siberian populations, they’re primarily Eskimos, essentially the Altai ins and the Akuto.
Victor Sagalovsky: Ian’s why they had so many more centenarians, people that live over 100 years than anywhere else in Europe, 324 per 1 million, and everywhere else, it’s like, you know, five to 20, okay, like, Why are these people live like Eskimos, why do they, first of all not have any health problems that modern, Western health problems, but they also live over 100 very easily, at least quite a few of them in their population. And they were trying to figure out why.
Victor Sagalovsky: And they honed in on this deuterium problem, because they saw that the water that they were drinking was 60%, lower and deuterium and this is what set this whole thing off this whole bit of inquiry, and they published in 1961. And this is from that time, that we know that the reduction of determining your body will increase your energy and the accumulation of deuterium will do the opposite. It will slow you down.
Steve Washuta: Do you have any competitors and do you expect to down the road have competitors because it seems like such a, you know, up-and-coming niche market?
Victor Sagalovsky: There are four factories that can produce this right now. Nobody in the US we’re building we’re in the process of building a factory in the United States. But right now, we have three competitors. One is a Chinese competitor that brings its water into the US and markets it here. Then there’s Hungarian water and romaine ours. So I’m, I’m friends with most of them.
Victor Sagalovsky: It’s not like it’s competition because there’s just not enough. If everybody woke up tomorrow, oh, my God, I get it. This is huge. You know, where would you get it? You may be the whole, maybe everybody together has enough water for 10,000 people if that. Okay. So where would everybody woke up tomorrow and said I wanted to play by Uteri and work to get this water after that small amount of and how many? How many? How many culturally creative, biohacking type athletic people are involved with their own health you have in the United States? You know, it’s 25 million or so.
Victor Sagalovsky: So you can you know, it would be a radical shift. And I think, I think this is one of those things, that’s, that’s coming in, at this time, of a great shift in human consciousness, technology, everything, you know, this is a real long-term strategy. It’s, it’s here now just landed. And it’s, it’s growing.
Victor Sagalovsky: So we’ve just planted the seeds now. And where it’s very exciting because it’s only been three years that we’ve actually been commercially making this available to people where they can not only feel a benefit, short term but actually, be on it for a number of years and see what the long term benefit is. Because it’s so a lot of this is unpaid territory. This is all very new because it’s mostly existed in theory, up until ourselves and our small number of competitors actually started making this available for people is
Steve Washuta: the goal to focus on the technological component. And to make this let’s say, 30 years from now actually available to a large swath of people.
Victor Sagalovsky: Absolutely. Yeah, technology is a big piece here. Yeah, because you’re what we’re doing right now is we’re copying the hydrological cycle inside a factory. And, and it’s, and we’ve amplifying it, right? But that’s how we’re removing the deuterium, or the HDL, the semi-heavy water from the h2o water is, is through this mechanical process, you know, you have this, you have these columns that are 40 feet tall, and then they have water going up and down and you pull a little bit off at the top that has less deuterium.
Victor Sagalovsky: So So I think it’s very exciting. Because, you know, I make this I put this challenge out to everybody, I talked to you, at least in scientific circles. And I tell them, hey, maybe you know, what, I make an analogy that you and I are, it’s 1860 and you and I are sitting around a campfire talking about the fact that sometime in the future, somebody’s going to invent the light bulb. We haven’t seen the light bulb yet, but we know it’s close because we have other things that point to it.
Victor Sagalovsky: So now we have the water you know, and do we have the technology to do it? We don’t have it for the whole planet yet. But we’re close Alright, somebody is going to come along maybe they’re not born yet. Maybe they already are. Maybe it’s you maybe it’s me, but we’ll figure out a way one it’ll get accepted in mainstream science to it’ll get accepted as a household where people will know that there’s a new standard of water purity because that’s really all it is here it’s a new standard in the purity of the water we figured out in last century that Oh, we got to remove arsenic from the water you know, we have to remove chlorine we you know, it’s best to remove particulate matter, it’s not good to good for us.
Victor Sagalovsky: So we’ve, so it’s only in the last 50 years that we have reverse osmosis filtration, by the way, my partner Robert Slovak is one of the pioneers of reverse osmosis now again, second, second, or second round around the merry-go-round with deuterium depletion and Lightwater. So what we have here is a new standard of water purity, it’s just not everybody has been able to come up to it yet. In fact, it’s very difficult to come up to the standard, but when you incorporate this standard into your body into your lifestyle, you benefit immensely.
Victor Sagalovsky: Incredibly, I mean, I can attest to that just for my own testimonial, but when people that do drink Litewater over a period of time or any determine up to water or even, I’ll go I’ll go even further to say that don’t even consume any deuterium depleted water but observe deuterium depleted lifestyle. They also benefit. So it’s this deuterium depletion concept that people need to get familiar with and understand how less is more.
Steve Washuta: Have you or anyone done it? Study where they just take, let’s say, a bottle of avian water bottle of Dasani. And uh, you know, the tap water and tested the deuterium levels. Is one more than the other and your average, you know?
Victor Sagalovsky: So we’ve done those tests, others have done those tests where basically you see what the term level is of all table waters and for that matter, all municipal water that’s public information they do a test to determine the level of most municipal water.
Victor Sagalovsky: And so that’s a that’s widely available and there’s really no water commercially available water out there that’s below one four, I would say 135. Even, you know, there may be you can get glacial water that’s 135 parts per million. And certain parts of the world you will find you canned water. For its 120 PPM range, but you’ll have to hike to those places.
Steve Washuta: Well tell my audience a little bit about where they can find more about Litewater. Specifically, whether it is your website. OR whether they really are interested in buying it, or maybe they want to reach out to you specifically. Maybe someone in your company because they have more questions concerning?
Victor Sagalovsky: Yeah, I would, here’s what I would suggest you go to our website drinklitewater.com li te, W A T E R, and it’s called Litewater because we put it on the scale compared to an equal amount of regular water you’ll see that it’s slightly lighter because there’s no Deterium a minute, but familiarize yourself with information on drinklitewater.com and download the free termed guide that really good like quick information you can see if this is it, what it is and if it’s for you and you know what it involves to be successful the strategy or deuterium depletion in general and I will do want to say one more thing because you the beginning of the podcast,
Victor Sagalovsky: you mentioned that you have a lot of people listening, that are trainers and athletes and so forth. There was one study that I honed in on. Which is phenomenal, and this is one that we are going to recreate here after 30 days of deuterium depletion. They show this study showed how it used athletes and weekend warriors, nonathletic people as well. And there was a study that was done with six people. And so there was a group that drank slightly term depleted water. Then another group that drank double that terribly polluted water. And a group that drank just regular water.
Victor Sagalovsky: And the group for 30 days drank to turn it to the water where they were able to get themselves down. Probably this isn’t a study with probably to a level that was between 100 and 125 PPM range. It showed that they had that after 30 days on the term depletion. tThey were able to utilize twice. Were able to use half the oxygen to produce the same amount of effort. So they basically utilize their oxygen. Basically double their bodies of how their body uses their oxygen doubled its efficiency.
Victor Sagalovsky: And so when I read this study originally years ago, it made me think of something because, you know, when you look at these Alpine climbers, and they go up to they climb Mount Everest, they, they have to deal with supplemental oxygen. The Sherpas that live there don’t. They could go up and down all day long to the top of Mount Everest. Which is supposed to be impossible because of the lack of oxygen up there. Or the very thin, thin atmosphere, but they can go up there without supplemental oxygen.
Victor Sagalovsky: And the reason they can’t is that at the base camp of Mount Everest, the water there is 125 parts per million. So when a Westerner is acclimated there for a few months or more. Practices a keto diet, they too can summon Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen. Because this study shows that when you are deuterium depleted. You need half the amount of oxygen to perform the same amount of work.
Victor Sagalovsky: So that when I want to recreate replicate here because that’s like that can change sports, you know, as I and for me, I’m 50 and my cardio is just for somebody that sits mostly in front of a computer. My cardio is off the charts. This is phenomenal. And it’s all because of its deuterium depletion and oxygen strategies. But yeah, this is an upscale intervention. So if you want to. If you want to increase your performance, like if you’re stuck somewhere performance-wise. Decrease your deuterium a little bit and tell me what happened.
Steve Washuta: The science seems amazing. I myself, I’m going to read more about it. I’m going to list all the links below and anything else. If you have anything else to say to the audience, please please go for a
