|Do not buy or consume (drink) Miracle Mineral Solution products or associated products described as water purification solutions. Consuming these products is the same as drinking bleach – it can cause dangerous and potentially life-threatening side effects. These products are not approved medicines. Their quality and efficacy are unknown.|
Medsafe is not aware of any scientific evidence that these products are effective against bacteria and viruses in your body when you drink them.
What are the dangers of Miracle Mineral Solution products?
These products contain a high concentration of sodium chlorite, which is used for textile bleaching and as a disinfectant. When mixed as directed, the sodium chlorite develops into chlorine dioxide – a bleach.
When you drink them, these products can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and symptoms of severe dehydration. These may be life threatening, and you should seek medical advice as soon as possible.
