Frequently Asked Questions

What deleterious effect, if any, does Umuthi have on the human cell?

There is no known side effect of Umuthi, if used as prescribed. Umuthi is unique in the sense that it is both size-selective and volatile. So we take advantage of the size difference of the human cell as compared to the virus cell. Cell permeation rates of Umuthi are also important. The difference in the action of Umuthi on the virus as compared to the human cell is not so much centered on their difference in biochemistry but more on their sizes.

Since the virus takes over the machinery of the cell to propagate itself, how does this
Umuthi of yours enter the cell to impact or stop viral replication? Further, what
regime does Umuthi follow, and are any cell processes affected during this period of
viral inactivation?

The uniqueness of Umuthi is in its mode of action. Contrary to the generic disinfectants /oxidants (as alluded to by Donald Trump’s scientist and his – Donald’s own comments on the same), all other oxidants would attack the cell wall and try to burn (oxidize) everything they come across, including the virus, yet Umuthi’s specificity enables it to inactivate the virus through electron transfer without damaging the host cell. This action targets not the entire virus, but particularly the spike protein which has receptor-binding abilities with which the virus attaches itself and enters the host cell. Umuthi’s advantage is in its use of nascent oxygen- more like a free radical that will denature chemical moieties -tyrosine; tryptophan and cysteine amino acid residues in milliseconds.

What is the difference between Umuthi and a vaccine?

A vaccine is a specific and preventive measure e.g. a SARS Cov 1 vaccine may not be used for SARS Cov 2. Umuthi on the other hand, is a non-specific and curative measure whose ultimate results can also become preventive (click the “About” button for further details). Remember that any virus is mainly protein, therefore  the mode of action of Umuthi is to inactivate the virus by denaturing the viral  protein structure.

It would be folly to introduce any remedy into the human system without taking into consideration the CT values (Concentration and exposure Time). With reference to question 1 & 2 above, it would be well worth noting that the human cell itself, apart from its larger size than that of the virus, has numerous defense mechanisms against potentially cytotoxic agents, UMUTHI being one of them if prolonged exposure or higher concentration is experienced.

It contains glutathione which acts even faster than tyrosine, tryptophan and cysteine. This, coupled with the natural antioxidants, would protect the human cell from oxidant attack. Of course, prolonged exposure will eventually deplete these cell defense mechanisms leading to cytotoxic effects and ultimate cell death.
