Super Oxygen Energy – AHA! Climate Discovery or Rather Flying in the Face of Bioenergetic Science for May of 2023

April 29, 2023 – Being self-appointed science renegades, we are taking a turn back to our bioenergetics core this month, to present exciting research about the power of active oxygen like when someone drinks Watt-Ahh.

In the mechanical world, oxygen by itself is not a mechanical fuel per se so it is not a major player in the climate change discussion. Oxygen, however, is an oxidizer that will speed the combustion of other materials.

So why are we so excited about the biochemical energetics of oxygen according to recent research? Why would this research revelation support our contention that drinking Watt-Ahh without any sugars or caffeine provides more mitochondrial energy than any other energy drink? Or for that matter, an energy bar or even a sweet syrupy dessert? The title of the key research paper flies in the face of science … “Oxygen Is the High-Energy Molecule Powering Complex Multicellular Life: Fundamental Corrections to Traditional Bioenergetics” by Klaus Schmidt-Rohr. This article appeared in ACS (American Chemical Society) Omega magazine in February of 2020 and also widely published by other life sciences organizations, national medical libraries, Brandeis University, peer review and AI-powered research outlets online.

According to Schmidt-Rohr’s research, glucose (sugar) is not the highest-energy molecule but instead it is O2. In Schmidt-Rohr’s own words … “A fundamental re-assessment of the overall energetics of biochemical electron transfer chains and cycles is presented, highlighting the crucial role of the highest-energy molecule involved, O2. The chemical energy utilized by most complex multicellular organisms is not predominantly stored in glucose or fat, but rather in O2 ….”

Schmidt-Rohr’s scientific findings support our theories on the of Watt-Ahh’s mitochondrial/bioenergetic potential without any glucose or fat added:

Reactions of O2 with organic molecules are highly exergonic, while other reactions of glucose, fat, NAD(P)H, or ubiquinol (QH2) have meager energy output.

The notion that “reduced molecules” such as alkanes or fatty acids are energy-rich is shown to be incorrect; they only unlock the energy of more O2.

Glucose gives a relatively small energy output in glycolysis and the Krebs cycle converting glucose to CO2 and NADH. As Schmidt-Rohr states … “Only in the ‘terminal’ aerobic respiration reaction with O2 does a large free energy change occur due to the release of oxygen’s stored chemical energy.” The actual reaction of O2 of the inner mitochondrial membrane does not even involve any organic fuel molecule. Schmidt-Rohr states … “The traditional presentation that relegated O2 to the role of a low-energy terminal acceptor for depleted electrons has not explained these salient observations and must be abandoned. Its central notion that electrons release energy because they move from a high-energy donor to a low-energy acceptor is demonstrably false. The energies of (at least) two donor and two acceptor species come into play, and the low ‘terminal’ negative reduction potential in aerobic respiration can be attributed to the unusually high energy of O2, the crucial reactant.”

According to Schmidt-Rohr, electrons are mostly not accepted by oxygen but by hydrogen. Note: Our opinion is that DiTetra Gas used to make Watt-Ahh also adds extra electrons to the two outside rings of oxygen that release protons, a super-charged state of oxygen.

In summary, Schmidt-Rohr states … “O2, rather than glucose, NAD(P)H, or ATP, is the molecule that provides the most energy to animals and plants and is crucial for sustaining large complex life forms.”

Schmidt-Rohr’s conclusions:

Chemical energy is stored mostly in weak bonds, showing that O2 with its relatively weak double bond is the molecule with the highest energy per bond in biochemistry.

Traditional presentation of biochemical energetics does not recognize the high-energy role of O2 but instead assumes that the chemical energy powering complex organisms is stored in the bonds of glucose, NAD(P)H, or reduced molecules such as methane and actually give off little energy in the absence of O2.

Fermentation or breakup of glucose into small molecules produces only little ATP. The amounts of energy released or taken up during the Krebs and Calvin cycles are similarly unremarkable.

Organic fuel is not the origin of free energy released by the reaction of O2 (Schmidt-Rohr mentions the possibility of pumping a larger number of protons than conventionally claimed).

Energy originally stored in O2 is used to produce ATP.

Schmidt-Rohr’s concludes with this statement … “To present bioenergetics correctly, biochemistry textbooks will need to be revised significantly.”

Original Mitochondria

It makes sense that the bacteria DNA of our own mitochondria had to evolve to use the high energy of O2 and not glucose and fats that were unavailable eons ago. Yes, “monster energy drinks” were not even around when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

We borrow from our article about the “Original Mitochondria” in November of 2020  … ”Earth originally lacked a supply of oxygen. Anaerobic bacteria ruled. Eons later, according to at least one scientific theory, the climate changed to allow photosynthetic bacteria to populate the Earth and release oxygen that is toxic to anaerobic bacteria. For climate change survival, anaerobic bacteria merged with aerobic bacteria to form mitochondria. These power plug-ins became part of our cells and what is amazing is the numbers vary within different  types of cells such that the most mitochondria can be found within the cells of our hearts to support the energy needed for continuous beating.”

Watt-Ahh’s molecular structure of high-energy double oxygen bonded to four hydrogen and enriched with extra electrons is optimum in generating mitochondrial energy needed for living, healing and immunity. The electrical differential of Watt-Ahh rapidly carries it across the cellular membrane. Watt-Ahh delivers to the cellular mitochondria both electrons supporting production of ATP plus high-energy output from O2 that also based on Schmidt-Rohr’s research is used in the production of ATP. Watt-Ahh is Nature’s best energy drink.
