LOOK DEEPER INTO NATURE, AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING BETTER.

WHAT IS HOCL?
HOCl is a natural part of our internal defense system, produced by white blood cells. When produced outside the body, HOCl is an electrolyzed, antimicrobial, biocide solution that inactivates pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, spores, and fungi.
Works to fight infection, control responses to injury, and enhance healing
Part of the healthy response to injury and recovery
HOCl consistently shows no adverse effects
Will not irritate or aggravate tissue damage at wound sites
There is no bubbling or tingling sensation, unlike many other topically applied solutions
Soothing, steady control over the healing process that quickly become evident
Safe for use on humans and animals
HOCL: REAL SCIENCE IN THE HUMAN BODY
Harmful pathogens, such as bacteria, spores and viruses, can be found all around us — in the air, on food, plants, animals, and on inanimate surfaces. The human body uses innate, non-specific mechanisms as the first line of defense against pathogens, infection and injury. The skin itself, and mucous secretions at epithelial membranes, are both important elements of the innate resistance response. But when these are breached, HOCl is immediately generated by the body in response as the key chemical component of innate immunity.
A cascade of benefits comes about with this HOCl production. The mechanism of HOCl production from salt in the body involves intracellular enzymes, but outside the body the process can be mimicked by using controlled application of electrical energy instead — an electrochemical activation (ECA) process.
HISTORY OF HYPOCHLOROUS
As an antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal that is safe for all mucosal contact, HOCl hurries healing, works to mitigate scarring, to clear a myriad of skin issues and conditions, can be misted to permeate small crevices for effective odor control and sanitation, and a review of HOCl attributes will show the following citations:
reduces skin ageing
makes blood clot in wounds
causes fibrinogen oxidation, leads to firmer clots and longer clot lysis period
stimulates immunity to germs
produces powerful local stimulants of wound healing and germ killing
makes new skin cells grow over wounds and reorganizes scar fibers
leads to long lasting local effects in the body
While the 100 year history of Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl) has provided indisputable evidence of its efficacy in healing and use in disinfection, and over 500 peer-reviewed, published papers universally document significant beneficial results, the widespread use of HOCl has remained fairly stagnant, and the primary limiting factor to broad adoption of this important technology, historically, has been due to its lack of stability.
With that knowledge, and the bottom-line mission to fundamentally change the discussion of health, healing and disinfection around the world, BRIOTECH dove into all things HOCl — science, technology, equipment, properties and production. Through nine years of research, BRIOTECH has brought HOCl technology to the forefront through trade-secret developments in properties and production which have been documented and published as scientific breakthroughs in both efficacy and stability.
HOW BRIOTECH HOCL IS UNIQUE
Only BRIO HOCL™ has been proven to eliminate the world’s most dangerous and hardiest pathogen
More closely than any other HOCl on the market, BRIOTECH mimics what is produced inside the body
Our formulations contain no active components other than pure HOCl (unlike other HOCl producers)
Our HOCl is unmatched in safety, efficacy, and stability
BRIOTECH formulations are HOCl in its purest form
Our purity allows us to continually achieve ground-breaking results
BRIOTECH’s scaling capacity sets the industry precedent for production
BRIOTECH manufactures HOCl in an FDA-registered, GMP-compliant facility
Nine years of committed scientific research and testing in HOCl properties and production
The BRIOTECH vision has always been about what HOCl can do for the good of man, in medicine and in healthcare, and we’re excited to lead the Hypochlorous Acid industry with game-changing technologies in healing and disinfection.
HOW WE MAKE HOCL
Furthering the development of Electro-Chemical Activated (ECA) Technology, BRIOTECH has scientifically engineered a process to mass-produce Hypochlorous products that are highly-effective. The ECA formulations that BRIOTECH produces are superior in purity and have been proven to maintain electrical efficacy beyond known barriers. In this stable form, these electrically active HOCl solutions maintain efficacy and power to influence many biochemical events in human and animal tissues, and in microbes.
Under strict quality-control procedures, we use water (H2O) and salt (NaCl) to create a specific brine solution, and then pass the brine through a proprietary, electrolytic chamber. The finished Hypochlorous Acid is a weak acid solution with powerful benefits.
Throughout the world, commercial industries such as hospitality, janitorial, food and water processing, agricultural, animal husbandry, and health and public safety have adopted ECA Technology for use, eliminating the need for harmful, toxic chemicals.
SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS
The following search suggestions will provide you with a myriad of resource materials, such as medical publications, case studies and news articles relative to hypochlorous acid (HOCl). We have systematically researched this material over the years to realize the facts and further our knowledge and understanding of this wonderful product. As a result of our research, we are encouraged by the affirmation of the scientific community as to the positive effects of HOCl on humans, animals, and the environment.
WAIVER: While we have found a mechanism and formulas to produce a superior, stable and highly effective HOCl solution, we make no claims whatsoever as to its use, whether on person or in these studies.
