Oxygen Drops H2O2 foodgrade 100mlMarcelle du Plessis, of Body Detox (and famous for her Miracle Magnesium scam), is advertising this product with the following nonsense: “Viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites thrive in an oxygen depleted body. By adding oxygen to your diet, your health will improve dramatically.”

“Candida and cancer cells thrive in a body depleted from oxygen. Due to pollution and stress we become oxygen depleted. This oxygen can be taken internally to replenish depleted oxygen levels. Oxygen will help to kill harmful bacterial, and viral infections. Oxygen is very effective against Candida and Cancer.”

Marcelle du Plessis is the individual behind Miracle Magnesium products, a series of scam health products that claim to be able to assist or treat a range of conditions. Not only is there not a single study confirming the claims for these products, in fact, there is no evidence that the individual ingredients can result in many of the claims being made. In fact, the claims are completely contrary to known physiology which has been very well studied. Big scam.

The website, Body Detox, sells a number of unsubstantiated products – many with absolute false claims. For example, the site states:

  • “Most people are severely Magnesium deficient and are blissfully unaware of the health complications associated with Magnesium deficiency”,  
  • “Most illnesses and disease including constant tiredness, headaches, bloatedness, allergies, sinusitis, eczema and poor concentration could all be due to toxins and parasites in the body”
  •  “Roll your sinusitis away”
