We Don’t Recommend You Drink the Water …

We also don’t recommend that you don’t drink the water, either. Confused? Well there seems to be buzz on the Internet about a type of water that a Dallas-based company is marketing and this water’s relationship to M. D. Anderson.

So we thought we’d un-muddy the water for our patients, employees and supporters. M. D. Anderson doesn’t recommend the water.

What we did do was test the water (this time the pun is not intended) for the company, who compensated us to do so. The tests were very specific, not comprehensive and the results were turned over to the company without interpretation by M. D. Anderson experts.

Because of the advanced equipment at our institution, we get requests from industry from time to time to use the equipment for commercial endeavors. We evaluate these requests, and if it’s not disruptive to patient care and research, we may accommodate for a fee. This is what happened in the case of the water from Dallas.
M. D. Anderson statement:

Recently, you may have heard or read about a company that sells Evolv, a “nutraceutical beverage,” which is being promoted in part based upon testing done at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, but also is being mistakenly viewed as endorsed by M. D. Anderson. M. D. Anderson conducted limited chemical analysis of the product to evaluate its anti-inflammatory activity for a fee at the request of the manufacturer. No efficacy or toxicity data were generated at M. D. Anderson nor was the product tested on humans. Moreover, M. D. Anderson does not have any involvement with the company, the product is not produced by M. D. Anderson, and M. D. Anderson does not endorse the product or recommend its use.

My partner is a bio-chemical engineer. I discussed the process of Archea Active with him. The process did not exist! This is most likely a marketing plan by this company ( in my opinion)
They do have the right to name a process that they create and that’s what they probably did. The benefit most people experience is probably from the fact they are drinking more water than they did before they invested in this product. The oxygenation of cells and cellular communication is a natural process by which the nitrogen in the water reacts with the oxygen to purge the body of toxins. There are many all natural enzymes that perform this function much better and for less money.
Ionized silver (colloidal silver) is a much better way of destroying bacteria in the body.
All hospitals use silver to as treatment. Burn patients have burns wrapped in bandages soaked in silver, babies eyes are washed with silver, and even cancer patients are given IV’s with silver. You can get a lot of information on natural treatments on a website ( which I have part of) empircialnutrition.com the information is free!

After having read several different web sites and gleening not much information I am still left wondering “What exactly is in archaeo active in Evolv water????” You know there are a lot of people out there with allergies and I would really like to know what I am putting in my body. The nutritive value label isn’t much help at all, so I guess I really need way more info before I even begin to think I may want to drink this water….
would appreciate an answer as my husband has just purchased a case of this water for me to help me with some health issues I am dealing with. thanks

Setting the Record Straight
by Carl H. Martens on 20/11/09 at 8:34 am

Below is something Trey White posted on the corporate website in regards to the ongoing dispute and lawsuits regarding The MD Anderson Cancer Center.

I have some information that I would like to share with you regarding our involvement with The MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC) and recent developments.

As you are aware, we used MDACC for specific testing on the Archaea Active Formula to further validate the years of anecdotal testimonials that Gene Kaiser was receiving from people drinking the Archaea Active-enhanced water. After reviewing the stack of testimonies, I was intrigued enough to invest into the first round of studies at MDACC and Futureceuticals Inc..

Our manufacturing partner, Health2o Products LLC, engaged MD Anderson to test the “anti-inflammatory” properties and also retained Futureceuticals to test for increased oxygen utilization. Both studies came back with positive results which engaged our interest in conducting further studies and developing our plan to bring the product to market.

We launched the Evolv product using the Archaea Active formula knowing that we have a product with GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe)-only ingredients delivered in natural spring water and in vitro studies from two world class independent research facilities. The testing from both facilities yielded data that supported the anecdotal testimonials from Kaiser’s lab which has created the foundation for Archaea Active products.

We launched our product making it clear that neither testing facility endorses our product. Our original plan was to launch the product as a traditional retail product. However we changed our business plan to launch the product through a network marketing model.

Unfortunately the networking marketing industry still has some level of misunderstanding associated with it; some people still do not understand the thriving and legitimate business that is direct sales. Great business leaders understand. Warren Buffet, for example, owns the very successful direct sales company, Pampered Chef. Direct sales companies such as Avon, Mary Kay, Amway and Shaklee have been in business for decades, doing billions of dollars in annual revenues and changing millions of people’s lives.

However some feel a negative association to be tied to this industry. MDACC recently shared their concern with us and asked us to remove their trademark and name from our packaging, even though we had their approval originally to do so. Because we paid for the testing and have shared the abstracts on http://www.archaeaactive.com, we believe that we are in our legal right to state who did our testing. To reiterate, we make it very clear that MDACC does not endorse our product in any way.

In regards to this dispute, Health2o decided to ask the courts to make a determination. The University of Texas Board of Regents (MDACC’s sponsoring organization), replied to our lawsuit with their own suit against Health2o Products and EvolvHealth in an attempt to change the court venue from Dallas to Houston. We believe based on the facts that we are within our legal rights to state on our packaging that MDACC conducted the testing for us. We have no signed documentation stating otherwise.

Most importantly, the results of the in vitro tests are not in question, it is whether or not we can print their name on our bottle and box. It is really that simple. We are confident that we will come to a resolution on this issue soon.

What is Archaea Active?Archaea Active™ describes the energy-advancing benefits of a proprietary all-natural formula and involved manufacturing process developed by Health2o Products, LLC. The founders believe that their process initiates the production of cell signaling molecules which the company describes as Archaea Active™. These molecules, present at the picomolar level, stimulate other cells to communicate and respond.

Please visit our SCIENCE section to learn about the role of cell signaling molecules. You may also visit our RESEARCH section to read excerpts from the initial in vitro test reports.

Initial In Vitro Testing of the Archaea Active Formula

More than 15 years of research and development have been invested in our proprietary and all-natural formula, which consists of extracts from organically certified alfalfa, milk whey protein, and a combination of specific enzymes. Our formula has undergone in vitro testing by a world renown independent research lab out of Houston, and FutureCeuticals® out of Illinois. Excerpts from those reports are posted on this website.

We approached both labs in 2008 and contracted with each of them, on a fee basis, to perform the initial in vitro tests on our Archaea Active™ formula. They performed these tests and provided us with their results. Except for on this website, these results are not available to the general public, and they have not been published in any peer reviewed journals.

The results from these initial in vitro tests indicate that our formula stimulates cellular oxygen utilization and has similar metabolic properties to those compounds traditionally associated with having anti-inflammatory activity. Please understand that this research is not from human trials, but rather from initial in vitro testing. These reports provide the groundwork for future testing, and help us understand why so many individuals who were using the Archaea Active ™ formula communicated a variety of positive health experiences to us over the years.

The Archaea Active™ formula is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. It has not been evaluated by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Not all people who use the product achieve the same results. And neither research lab currently endorses, backs or recommends our products, nor do either have a financial interest in Health2o Products.

Archaea Active™ is a licensed trademark of Health2o Products, LLC of Dallas, Texas.
