Viruses originate from RNAs. The sugar in RNA is ribose sugar and is the phosphates based, and they react in the nucleotides to form an ester bond. While not inside a cell or in the process of cell infection, viruses exist as an independent particle known as virions or virus particles. The way the virus replicates dependent on the presence of phosphates in the form of copolymerization with ribose and nucleus. Viruses cannot produce energy for metabolism nor synthesize protein. Hence, to replicate, viruses form the capsid, a protective protein shell, using pre-existing proteins in an infected cell. Virus travel in the body via extracellular fluid for replication. However, virus replication is conditioned, which requires a particular environment. For instance, there should be an adequate quantity of phosphates with a surrounding temperature that is lower than 36 °C. Hence, to prevent virus infection and replication, the conditions mentioned above should be avoided at all costs, which can be achieved by ionized calcium. Ionized calcium plays a significant role in glucose metabolism and redox reaction, which gives rise to body temperature and inactivate active RNA.
“A high school student with aplastic anemia who was going through a rough patch because the only available treatment option was bone marrow transplant, has recovered his health with the help of SAC. After graduation from college, he got a job at a hospital as a phlebotomist around 2015 when the MERS epidemic was all over the world. While other health practitioners who diagnosed several MERS patients were quarantined due to MERS infection, he was not an exception. Colleagues questioned why he was not infected by MERS when he was at the most severe risk for the infection as a phlebotomist for MERS patients. He still regularly takes SAC.”
Calcium injection was used as a medicinal treatment for patients with the common cold in the 18th century. Such practice did not last long due to calcium’s affinity to a protein that could lead to the formation of calcium deposits in the blood vessel. Nevertheless, the beneficial effect of calcium in the prevention of viral activity has always been acknowledged and recognized.
SAC and Virus Inactivation
SAC increases blood and intra/extracellular fluid ionized calcium levels, which forms a complex with phosphate to inactive RNA. SAC is capable of providing 1.25 x 1019 ionized calcium readily into the blood and cellular matrix. In severe viral infection cases, it is recommended to take SAC in every three hours.
HIV is not an exception. If the concentration of ionized calcium is maintained at high, we speculate that HIV would become eliminated. Although we have monitored the beneficial effect of SAC on HIV via case studies, we are uncertain whether HIV becomes completely eliminated or inactive due to the obnoxiously long silence period of HIV.
Eosinophils are a variety of white blood cells that are known to play a role in the immune system against infections. In parallel with the role of calcium in the prevention of viral infection via inactivation of virus RNA, eosinophils also contain RNases that are capable of degradation of RNA into smaller components and thus inactivating viral infection. Moreover, eosinophils attenuate viral activity through the production of nitric oxide. According to a study conducted by Choi et al., when water containing 0.0012% SAC was provided for 12 weeks, rats showed significantly increased concentration of eosinophils compared to that of control rats, suggesting the beneficial effect of SAC against viral infection could be mediated via increased eosinophil activity.
