Hi Fanie, thank you for the question.
This is a difficult question to answer as there are 2 schools of thought with the use of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in the human body. The first time H2O2 was used successfully in humans was in 1920 during a Flu epidemic and subsequent to that a further study published in the 1980’s described the intravenous use and dosages for patients with chronic diseases.
Doctors against the use of H2O2 state (and correctly so) that H2O2 is an oxidizing agent and as such produces oxidative free radicals that are harmful to our bodies.
Following from the above, it is my opinion that one should be extremely careful before considering the use of H2O2 as an anti-ageing treatment. It would be wiser to wait for conclusive evidence that verifies its effectiveness.
