A Beginners Guide to Deuterium and Health

If you have been mixing in the biohacking circles recently, or following Dr. Jack Kruse, you would have definitely heard of deuterium.

The complex blogs and posts from the biohacking community are really only helping those with an understanding of advanced bio-chemistry, bio-physics and quantum health.

What is missing is a very easy to understand and general overview on deuterium and what is means for you. So here goes!

What Is Deuterium?

Deuterium is an isotope of hydrogen. An isotope is another form of the same element that contains an equal number of protons but what differs is the number of neutrons in their nuclei. Isotopes therefore have differing masses, but their chemical properties and how they behave in most chemical reactions are identical. 

Hydrogen has two isotopes, deuterium and tritium. We will not discuss tritium but instead focus on deuterium. Deuterium has a neutron in its nuclei which makes it denser than hydrogen. Hydrogen does not have a neutron present in its structure.

What Is the Role of Hydrogen in the Body?

Hydrogen is essential for energy production in humans. The most common form of hydrogen in the body is water (H2O). Our bodies are 60% water so it’s easy to see why hydrogen is important for life in humans.

At a quantum level hydrogen plays a vital role in mitochondria function.

Mitochondria are the powerhouse batteries of the body. They ultimately facilitate energy production.

Within the mitochondria there is a spinning head that rotates very fast, the rotation speed of this spinning head determines how efficiently you create energy. The faster the spinning head rotates the more energy you make and the healthier you will be. The slower the spinning head rotates the less energy you will make and this leaves you more susceptible to chronic mismatch diseases and faster aging. 

The spinning head also creates a magnetic field. The faster the spinning head rotates the stronger the magnetic field. Oxygen is paramagnetic, which means its attracted to magnetic fields. A healthy magnetic field created by optimal mitochondrial function will draw oxygen into the mitochondria. And we all know why we need oxygen right!?

The fuel that feeds the spinning head is hydrogen.

Hydrogen enters the mitochondria’s inner membrane and slots snugly into the top of the spinning head. As hydrogen is fed into the spinning head it rotates faster and you have healthy levels of energy production, higher magnetic field and less chance of chronic diseases. The less hydrogen that enters the spinning head the less it rotates and this means less energy production, higher chance of chronic diseases and a weakened magnetic field.

So hydrogen is very important to optimal human survival when explained at a quantum level.

What Does Deuterium Do to The Body?

Deuterium is an isotope of hydrogen and performs the same as hydrogen in chemical reactions outside the body. However, inside the body deuterium behaves differently to hydrogen. In essence deuterium will follow the exact same pathway as described above. Deuterium will enter the body and pass into the mitochondria and find itself at the top of the spinning head, ready to assist in energy production and create a magnetic field.

The spinning head is specifically designed by nature to accept hydrogen in its standard form. That is one proton and one electron. Deuterium contains a neutron and the spinning head is not equipped to deal with his neutron or wide enough for it to pass through the spinning head easily. When we have deuterium in the body it cannot pass through the spinning head well, gums up the system and ultimately slows down the rotation thus reducing energy production and magnetic field strength.

Less oxygen is drawn from the blood, energy levels reduce and your redox potential decreases. A lowering of your redox potential means a huge increase in your risks of chronic diseases.

Deuterium is not good if you want to live a long and disease free life. We need to remove it from our bodies.

How to Remove Deuterium From Your Body

Now we understand at a basic level why deuterium is not good for us we need to figure out how to remove it from the body and replace it with pure hydrogen.

1. Water

Water is the quickest and most sure fire way to get rid of deuterium and replace it with hydrogen. The best waters for low levels of Deuterium are Qlarivia, Mito Water and Preventa. However these products cost around $20 per litre of water, an expensive way to lower D levels! These products are typical at D levels of 25ppm and are the lowest available

Contrary to popular belief, Reverse Osmosis Water does not deplete Deuterium, this has been shown in test results.

For the general public who simply cannot afford the crazy prices of DDW you can opt for over the counter products that are lower in D than regular water. These are listed below with the numbers showing the ppm content of Deuterium.

2. Food

Food is the other means whereby water gets into your body. The best way to create DDW in your body is through a process called beta-oxidation. When we eat dietary fat our body produces energy, carbon dioxide and water. The water is completely deuterium depleted.

Beta oxidation is primarily facilitated by the mitochondria, specifically within the inner membrane. The same place where the spinning head is located. Therefore a diet high is healthy fats is a great way to get DDW into your system and reduce the likelihood of a gummed up spinning head and eventually chronic diseases. The body makes 1.1kg of DDW for every kilogram of fat consumed. For example, camels can go long periods of time without drinking as they make water from the fat stored in their hump.

What Are the Best Foods to Eat That Are Deuterium Depleted?

  • Green plants
  • Nuts
  • Grass-fed animals
  • Fish
  • Young food
  • Fat from plants and grass fed animals

What Are the Foods That Contain Deuterium We Should Limit?

  • Fruit, Potatoes and Grains -Plants get rid of their deuterium by putting it in their sugar storage.
  • Grain-Fed Animals.
  • Old food is higher in deuterium than young food because it, like us, lose their ability to deplete deuterium with age.


There you have it, a basic level overview on deuterium, what it is, what is does to your body and how to avoid it.

In essence we need to be drinking DDW and eating a diet high in pasture raised animals, fish, green vegetables and nuts. We should be avoiding starches, grains and simple sugars along with manufactured meat and non-pasture raised animals. 

If you want to live a long and chronic disease free life make sure you are avoiding deuterium.

    Exellent layman explanation however can you tell me how the Deuterium gets regulated in the body and how does it get through the mitochondrial nano motors to carry out its work in cell division etc when it is known to destruct nano motors upon entry? Also The fetus absorbs large amounts, how is that possible? Tks

    Watch videos with dr. Laszlo Boros he made this whole connection.

    Do you know the purpose of the unusual construction of the mitochondrial membranes? Did you know that the inner mitochondrial membrane is the ONLY membrane in humans that is DEVOID of DHA? Do you know why the membranes in the mitochondria are built by Nature to be extremely hydrophobic? Do you know that these membranes can carry voltages close to 30 million volts because of this build-out? Do you know that one of these membranes actually makes water from food? Did you know that the atomic construction of this water also has to be specifically depleted of a certain isotope? Do you know why all these things exist in your mitochondria? The answer might shock you. Uncle Jack is going to tell you that all these things occurred 650 million years ago to suspend the laws of physics to allow nature to do things not even gods could fathom. Nature figured out how to use nanoscale spaces to suspend physics to build the possibility of life.

    Did you know when a thin layer of water is squeezed between two hydrophobic surfaces, the laws of classical physics break down? Well, I have been teaching my members this since my epic April 2016 webinar on what life really is up too. Now you have more data I am on the right track and the paradigm and all my critics remain myopic.


    So Nature built cells to have the ability to suspend what we should expect to give us the most improbable answer why life really exists and happens. She figured out how to suspend her own laws using things she built. How is that for counterintuitive?

    That is why I teach Black Swans how to think. Nature does not employ any balanced protocol in her usage. She is all about unbalancing the scales to favor the tasks that cells need to accomplish. NEVER FORGET IT. And anyone who says otherwise will have to explain this new finding.

    People who have open minds to accept new data that blows your paradigm of beliefs apart.

    Nature is capable of a lot more than we believe.

    Very informative. Well laid out. Follows healthy diets. Not easy to get grass fed meat. Grain fed you can. Try and get no hormone or no antibiotic meat. Dr. Mercola.com has a hydrogen-nitro drink made with beets that is very good.
