Triplet and Singlet Oxygen
The oxygen in the air around us (21 %) exists in nature mainly in the inert triplet ground state (O2).
The inert oxygen cannot be used by the body and must be activated by the body itself in order to be transported via the lungs into the blood and from there on to the individual cells.
The reactive and active form of oxygen is called singlet oxygen (1O2) in physics. In this O2 molecule, the position of the electrons among each other is changed. Two unpaired electrons with parallel spin become paired electrons with anti-parallel spin.
Singlet oxygen has been present as a reactive form in nature for millions of years and is permanently produced by the body itself to enable metabolic processes and signal transmission. The constant activation of oxygen so that it can be transported and “burned” consumes energy. In the course of our lives, during illnesses and stress, the ability of our cells to produce sufficient energy (ATP adenosine triphosphate) decreases.
The “unclean burn” with further decreasing ATP production and increased oxygen radical production leads to further damage to cell structures and accelerated cell ageing.
If there is no longer enough energy produced, consequently less oxygen can be activated, which in turn results in even less ATP. Energy in the form of the energy storage molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is produced inside the cells in the “mini power stations”, the mitochondria.
What is relaxation energy (SOE: singlet oxygen energy)?
It is the energy released (photons and information) when singlet oxygen returns to its ground state (triplet oxygen). The energy released in this process is not lost and can be used (SET technology).
