Catalase is also found in blood. It metabolizes H2O2 to water and oxygen. Also cytochrome-C is present. That part of infused hydrogen peroxide that binds with cytochrome-C is not allowed to become water and singlet oxygen for a period of forty minutes. After forty minutes of being bound to cytochrome-C this enzyme begins to act like catalase and breaks down the hydrogen peroxide to water and singlet oxygen. By this time, the hydrogen peroxide/cytochrome-C complex has been spread throughout the body. In this way the benefits of hydrogen peroxide are made available to all cells. About 50% goes to each enzyme system after infusion.
