Deuterium in foods

    That translates to 95 to 97ppm deuterium in the phytol of plankton (from within a Caldera lake), one of the lowest numbers I've seen so far. Oysters eat phytoplankton, so this might indicate something. Granted this is a lake, but other sources on plankton also show quite low ranges for deuterium which tells us about the food chain of seafood.

    The grasses our favorite land based animals eat are the other focus given that quote @drezy pointed out.

    Oysters are often mentioned as a good food.
    Wonder what is their D content?
    @Jack Kruse

    Water containing liquids that we drink warrant second look, checking their D content.

    My two months long highly successful hack in 2008
    was based in large part on drinking juices.
    On average about 200cc/day of juice from green leafy vegetables that I found in my local supermarket.
    My fasting insulin went from 8 to 2.
    Now I would not be surprised if it was not all about low level of D in those juices and pork fat.

    People have asked about deuterium soup from Nathan's FB live feed with me so I will take it out of my bio hacking book early and do a patreon blog on it for members and Patrons because of all the PM's and emails I've gotten this weekend about it. It is linked deeply to the December 2017 webinar.

    This statement by Cinaturehealth, and my initial comments likely need some re-evaluation or discussion.
    This comment should likely need to be said first:
    When they say that a kg of consumed fat converts to 1.1 kg of water,
    that new water is mitochondrial water
    that new water have very low D content
    that D content is at least 130ppm or even much lower.
    That mitochondrial water should be converted to a tap water D content or better to (V-SMOW) (155.76 ppm) if we want to compare it to a usually consumed water.

    It would be a good idea to get a better D ppm number for mitochondrial water.

    If San Pellegrino has 155 ppm of D2, why are we drinking it?

    I'm still totally lost on how processed foods, supplements, drugs have increased deuterium?
    Oh, they're synthetic... woops:)

    Hi, do you recall where exactly this info was?

    San Pellegrino water has more lithium in it than any other water... lithium is the most conductive followed by potassium...

    Funny you should mention that . I look ed at this study today and wondered what it means .No chance to read it yet. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0006349509003415#bbib23

    We breathe in about 1 to 1.5 liters daily of water from the humidity in the air.
    I drink 1.5-2 Liters of water daily.
    Water intake from breathing and as food are highly similar.

    It is better to live in low air deuterium content areas. What are they?
    It seems as it may be better to live in low humidity area if that area is high in D.
    If one lives in high air D content, it may be beneficial to reduce humidity (AC and or dehumidifiers).
    What is the air D content in my zip code (07054)?
    Breathing in air with lower deuterium produces the same result as drinking deuterium depleted water!

    "Deuteronation, as exemplified by ATP synthase and the ETC, may interfere with the conformations and functions of many macromolecules and contribute to some pathologies like heavy water toxicity and aging."


    I'm also curious about inhaling authentic essential oils through diffusion, that are naturally deuterium depleted and what kind of a role those have on our mitochondria. Also, the SkQ1 drops that my husband and I continue to take via eye drops, which cross the BBB. I'm very curious if those play a role in depleting deuturim too, along with IR from the sun and red light

    So when the temp drops next week here in N.Y., I should be better off as the air dries out......
