Scientific Community Embraces Dr. Flanagan
Recently many publications have embraced Dr. Flanagan's research. When Dr. Flanagan first started revealing his discoveries, the scientific community did not immediately recognize the significance of his work. Now 20 years later, not only has much of the medical and scientific community accepted Dr. Flanagan's work, but also embraced it and celebrated its ground-breaking significance.
There are literally dozens of studies about the health benefits of Silica Hydride, the active ingredient in MegaHydrate.
Graphs from the Double Blind Placebo Study validating the hydration ability of MegaHydrate's active ingredient as referenced on the "Why Take MegaHydrate" page of this website.
The Antioxidant Capability of Silica Hydride was recently published in the Journal for Medicinal Food (JMF). JMF is considered one of most prestigious medical journals pertaining to human nutrition. Upon receiving Dr. Flanagan's ground-breaking research, the JMF did not wait the normal one year to publish his work. Dr. Flanagan's research was considered so important that it was given the highest publiciation priority and was published in the very next issue!
