How best can we turn-on our UV-C production?

Discussion in 'Ask Jack' started by John Schumacher, Dec 16, 2020.

  1. We know the absorption and emission rate of light's spectrum is now beginning to be understood in the literature. The concept of photooxidation mechanisms induced by the light absorption is the beginning of the process. The second is the emission rate the molecule returns back to the system.

    For example:
    The light sensitivity of riboflavin is a result of its redox‐active aromatic isoalloxazine moiety, which leads to riboflavin functioning as a photosensitizer, wherein it catalyzes the oxidation of substrates as a consequence of absorption of UV light. Upon exposure to light, riboflavin is excited to a short‐lived singlet excited state (1Riboflavin*), which then readily undergoes intersystem crossing to the longer‐lived excited triplet state (3Riboflavin*) (9) (Figure 2b).

    (a) Type I and Type II photooxidation mechanisms for riboflavin and subsequent mechanisms for substrate oxidation (modified from Cardoso et al. (2012)); (b) key forms of riboflavin in electronic excitation and redox processes.

    Dr Gominak uses a B complex supplementation, which a important bit part of her developing protocol; however, does she understand the photon absorption rate of these vitamins? https://drgominak.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Gominak-commensal-Gi-D.pdf

    The question of @Jack Kruse maybe -> How does the photon absorption rate of pantothenic acid, which is less than UV detection at 254 to 280 nm, impact our gut? https://optimalklubs.com/qt-26-what-no-one-asked-me-after-my-vermont-2018-talk/

    Since we know UV-C is "self made" within our dermis (see @Jack Kruse Vermont 2018 lecture), the next question is -> How best can we turn-on our UV-C production?

    The presence of a molecule does not mean it will be activated in a way expected.
