Summary of current research activity

Unique Global Possibilities has several current research projects that involve the chemical reaction of water and carbon dioxide.  These research projects include:


Carbon dioxide produces bicarbonates and carbonates

Much of the research conducted by Unique Global Possibilities centers on the ubiquitous enzyme carbonic anhydrase. Carbonic anhydrase catalyzes the hydration and dehydration of carbon dioxide.  It is one of the fastest enzymes known.  For example, each molecule of carbonic anhydrase in human red blood cells catalyzes the hydration of one million molecules of carbon dioxide per second to produce one million molecules of bicarbonate per second.  See diagram below.

Unique Global Possibilities has found that the above carbonic anhydrase enzyme reaction appears to be optimized in the presence of alkaline magnesium including citrate and bicarbonate (optimal pH value appears to be pH = 8.5).  It is known that both magnesium and potassium are co-transporters of bicarbonate ions into body cells.  This opens the possibility of magnesium bicarbonate and citrate consumption optimizing the buffering capacity of body cells.  Certainly the consumption of magnesium bicarbonate in water over time decreases the acidity of urine significantly (p = 0.0182). See clinical trial result below.
