Question ID: 538176
An MLM company has introduced a new product called "Okalani Water".
This is how they describe it:

"The Okalani structured water is a catalyst that turns regular water
from H2O to H12O6. What this means for the average person is that the
water is more easily absorbed into the bodies cells."

"The surface tension of the water is reduced. The water is also more
alkaline than regular water. A 8 ounce bottle will make 8 gallons."

"The Okalani Water that is H12O6, this is 3 times 
the O2 of regular water and has many, many less 
Dynes so it is complely absorbable right away." 

I suspect these two affiliates know a lot less about chemistry than I
do, which isn't much. But would H12O6 be any different than H2O? How
would this effect water surface tension?

If an eight ounce bottle will "make" eight gallons, is it just a
dilution? Would full strength Okalani Water be that much more
"potent"? Or is the whole concept just another cruel MLM joke?

Hello wwsnsource-ga,

You ask, "Or is the whole concept just another cruel MLM joke?"

Yes. It is!!!! Don't go near it.

Your instincts about the Okalani Water are correct. This is a hoax! I
notice it's marketed by LifeWave. There is nothing scientifically
valid about their claims. Although they claim it?s brand new and just
introduced, variations on ?clustered water? have been around for

I?ve collected several articles for you about clustered water and you
can draw your own conclusions. I?m not giving detailed information
here about LifeWave and their multi-level-marketing approach because I
see you have posted a separate question on that.

I think you have excellent instincts about questioning the chemistry
of Okalani Water. When something sounds too good to be true it usually

To your good health.

New Products:
The Okalani water was officially launched and the LifeWave is offering
a 60 day promotion on RestQuiet for distributors only.

LifeWave Notes From The Atlanta, Georgia Event This Past Weekend 

3) Did I forget that we now have 2 New Products.  The Okalani Water
that is H12O6, this is 3 times  the O2 of regular water and has many,
many less  Dynes so it is complely absorbable right away.

***** Okalani Water is a new version of previously marketed ?clustered waters.?

Two New Products Introduced By LifeWave At Atlanta Conference 

As part of the just finished Regional Conference in Atlanta, LifeWave
introduced two new products to our distributors there.

The Okalani structured water is a catalyst that turns regular water
from H2O to H12O6. What this means for the average person is that the
water is more easily absorbed into the bodies cells.

Te surface tension of the water is reduced. The water is also more
alkaline than regular water. A 8 ounce bottle will make 8 gallons.

The Newsletter of The North Texas Skeptics

Clustered Water
My first exposure to Clustered Water was actually at Preparedness Expo
'99 during its visit to Dallas; you might have seen a brief mention of
the product in my field report on the Expo (printed in the May 1999
issue of The North Texas Skeptic). Promoters of Clustered Water had
set up a table with a large chart showing beautiful color images of
what were supposed to be single water molecules, including Clustered
Water molecules.

A Brief Introduction to Clustered Water 
It turns out that Clustered Water is the invention of one Lee H.
Lorenzen, PhD, a licensed clinical nutritionist and chairman of
Cellcore International, Inc., a company that sells Clustered Water in
selected periodicals, over the Internet, and at a few
health/survivalism expos. A Web site operated by Cellcore-Utah
explained how Dr. Lorenzen discovered Clustered Water in the first

So, what exactly is this Clustered Water supposed to do, anyway? The
Cellcore-Utah site featured a list of benefits imparted by drinking
the stuff, including claims that Clustered Water "hydrates the cells,"
"enhances the body's immune system," "improves cell to cell
communication," and "energizes the body through resonance."

The Media Bypass advertisement is a bit more concise; in addition to
transporting nutrients, enzymes, and proteins in cells, "Clustered
Water? also removes waste products and helps maintain proper
communication between cells. This amazing breakthrough technology
allows us to sustain the high clustered water levels that are so
necessary in our body."

Water Cluster Pseudoscience

Junk science in the marketplace

There are more than twenty commercial products on the market that
purport to alter the structure of water in order to help maintain or
restore health, youth, and vigor. At my age I would not mind
re-aquiring some of these myself, but as a retired Chemistry professor
and habitual imbiber of tap-water, it disturbs me to see crackpot
chemistry, pseudoscientific mind-mush and outright lies used to
promote these products to consumers whose lack of scientific training
leaves them unprotected from this exploitation. This Web site is
directed primarily to those who are concerned about their health, but
who lack the technical background to distinguish science from
pseudoscience when the two are closely intertwined. It is also
recommended for teachers to use as resource material in courses about
consumer protection, pseudoscience, or critical thinking.

In the rather long page below, I try to present a critical examination
of some of the claims about the nature and action of these fictional
structure-altered waters ("SAW") in the context of the science as I
believe it is presently known and understood. It is my hope that
readers will thus be better equipped to make their own decisions about
the value of these products.

Water-related Pseudoscience ? Fantasy and Quackery

Junk science in the marketplace
Magnets and "catalysts" for softening water, magnetic laundry balls,
waters that are "oxygenated", "clustered", "unclustered" or
"vitalized" (purporting to improve cellular hydration, remove toxins,
and repair DNA), high zeta-potential colloids and vortex-treated
waters to raise your energy levels, halt or reverse ageing and remove
geopathic stress? all of these wonders and more are being aggressively
marketed via the Internet, radio infomercials, seminars, and by
various purveyors of new-age nonsense. The hucksters who promote these
largely worthless products weave a web of pseudoscientific hype
guaranteed to dazzle and confuse the large segment of the public whose
limited understanding of science makes them especially vulnerable to
this kind of exploitation.

The purpose of this site is to examine the credibility of these claims
from the standpoint of our present-day understanding of science. The
latter, of course, is always evolving and is never complete, but it
makes an excellent "B.S. filter" that is almost always reliable. It is
hoped that the information presented here will help consumers make
more informed decisions before offering up their credit cards to those
in the business of flogging pseudoscience.

Water As A Communicator 

Cell Communication
In October of 1994, Alfred G. Gilman of the University of Texas
Southwestern Medical Center and Martin Rodibell of the National
Institute of Environmental Health Sciences received the Nobel Prize
for determining how the cells of the human body communicate with one
another by sending and receiving "radio" signals. Other reputable
scientists, including Dr. Lorenzen, have demonstrated that this signal
transduction was facilitated by the clustered or "ringed" water that
is present in the cells of all living things.

by Dr Leonard Horowitz and Dr Joseph Puleo 

"I was intrigued when Dr. Horowitz first described the Bible

working with water crystallization methods to rejuvenate DNA. "The
'528' frequency is well known to scientists working on DNA repair," he
continued. "After studying the healing fountains of the world we
decided to add that frequency to a Clustered Water(TM) preparation we
recently patented. We believe it may be beneficial in delaying aging
