OPG+ Eliminates coronaviruses on surfaces

Here’s Why OPG+1 may be the Perfect Weapon

A Formidable Opponent

Coronaviruses have wreaked havoc around the globe. The most recent has killed thousands in every country, crippled economies and changed our lives forever. It’s hard to believe that something so small – 10,000 times smaller than the period at the end of this sentence – can be such a huge threat.

It’s even harder to believe when you consider that this tiny threat isn’t even alive. Viruses aren’t living, in the traditional sense. They aren’t capable of breathing, eating, or multiplying on their own. Basically, any virus is just a molecule of genetic material that contains a set of instructions for how to make the virus. This molecule is packaged inside of a case, which is the spiky round image that you’ve seen all over the news.

The family of coronaviruses get their name from the word crown. These viruses cause a variety of illnesses – usually respiratory – such as the common cold. Under the microscope, they look like they are wearing a crown due to their thorny outer shell.

Different types of viruses infect different areas of our bodies. Sometimes the little terrors thrive in our bloodstreams, as is the case with HIV or hepatitis. Other types such as the common stomach flu, like to set up shop in our stomach and digestive tract.

Coronaviruses are usually respiratory viruses. They enter our bodies through our nose, eyes, or mouth and work their way down to our lungs. This is where they start taking over healthy cells to do their bidding. The sole function of any virus is to create more viruses just like itself. They do this by attaching to the healthy cells inside our bodies, and hijacking them.

Instead of doing their normal jobs that keep our systems functioning properly, our cells get tricked into diverting all of their energy to making copies of the virus. Each copy then goes on to infect new cells, or make their way out into the world to infect new hosts.

These infections are especially worrisome in the respiratory system. Lung cells are in charge of absorbing oxygen to be distributed throughout the body, as well as expelling harmful substances that can be exhaled.

If enough of these cells are converted into virus-making “zombies,” a person will eventually suffocate because none of the air they are inhaling is actually being absorbed into their body. Luckily, we have a line of defense in the form of our immune systems. At some point, an alarm will sound that something is terribly wrong – that cells are being corrupted.

The most noticeable symptom of your immune system response is a fever spike. This is an indication that our body is fighting back by killing off all of the cells that have been compromised so that they cannot make any more of the virus. That’s why coronaviruses are so bad for people with compromised immune systems – or who have previous respiratory issues. If a person’s immune system takes too long to respond – or if its response is inadequate, the copies of the virus take over too many healthy cells. The lungs will be damaged past the point of recovery.

Viruses are spread in a variety of ways. Some types are able to remain contagious and transfer from place to place in water, such as drinking supplies or waste water. Other types of viruses travel through air, and are able to remain airborne for relatively great distances. A big part of the reason why new coronaviruses are such a threat is because they have never been seen before.

When a new virus surfaces, a race begins amongst medical professionals to learn as much as they can about the new bug. The faster we learn all the ways they can be spread, how they behave once inside the body, and how to treat them – the sooner we can gain the upper hand.

Learning the Enemy

So far, we know that coronaviruses are spread through droplets that are projected into the air when a person coughs, sneezes, or even talks. The droplets are fairly large in comparison to those produced from aerosol cans or sprays.

As such, they are heavier and instead of floating around in the air, they rather quickly settle on surrounding surfaces. That is why the Center for Disease Control recommends a safe distance of 6 feet away from others in their social distancing guidelines.

Much study has been done to determine how long viruses can remain on different types of surfaces once they land there. Researchers have found that potentially harmful traces of certain coronaviruses can remain for up to 72 hours on plastics, 48 hours on stainless steel, 24 hours on cardboard, and 4 hours on copper.

This means that if someone else comes along and touches a surface where one of these droplets has settled any time in the following days, they could potentially become infected as well.

Obviously, testing has not been able to be completed yet on every type of material so there is still a lot we don’t know.  What we can derive from these studies is that it is now more important than ever before to compulsively clean all areas that people touch throughout the day. Items such as phones, door handles, countertops, cabinets, car steering wheels and the like can become a transfer point for viruses.

Along with contaminating surfaces, there is mounting concern over another possible route of transmission. According to Alexandria Boehm, a Stanford professor of civil and environmental engineering, Increasing evidence indicates that some coronaviruses can be excreted in fecal matter.

OK, so it seems easy enough to avoid coming in contact with excrement…right? Here’s why this is a problem; they could potentially threaten our water sources. If water treatment facilities don’t specifically target and treat each specific type of virus contamination, a person could potentially be infected by reclaimed irrigation water.

The Perfect Weapon

Any type of virus is very fragile on it’s own. The genetic material or “instructions” at the center are easily dismantled and destroyed when unprotected. The spiny outer casing is made up of proteins that are slightly more durable and form a protective layer around the molecule. Luckily, the outer shells of coronaviruses have a weakness.

According to Karen Fleming, PhD, a professor in biophysics at Johns Hopkins University,  “Coronavirus is an ‘enveloped’ virus, which means that it has an outer lipid membrane layer,” an outer layer of fat. In fact, many of the most problematic viruses that have arisen in recent history have been this unique variety of ‘enveloped’ viruses. It is this characteristic that makes the OPG+1 formula the perfect weapon to destroy these types of viruses.

The active ingredients in the OPG+ formula are the same used in the popular OSEI Oil Spill Eater II bioremediation solution. Oil Spill Eater II (OSE II) has been championed as the world’s most environmentally safe and cost effective bioremediation process for the mitigation of hazardous waste, spills and contamination virtually anywhere.

Used to clean up over 30,000 environmental hazards around the world since 1989, this cleanup method is environmentally friendly and completely non-toxic. Steven Pedigo, OSEI Corporation CEO, states that his patented formula has the ability to dismantle viruses. He has released a bulletin which details his findings.

According to Mr. Pedigo, his formula – found in OPG+ – works to break down oil, petroleum and grease on a molecular level. It contains a specialized mix of all-natural enzymes and bio surfactants that have been perfected to completely eliminate all types of fat, grease, and oil.

These bio surfactants have anionic and cationic charges. Simply put, this means that some of the surfactant molecules in OPG+1 hate water – and will therefore burrow into the oil surrounding a virus to get away from it. At the same time, other surfactants in OPG+1 love water, so they will burrow back out of the same virus in order to get back to the water once inside. The outer shell will be pried apart by the rapid natural reaction of the molecules in the surfactants and completely obliterated.

Once the greasy envelope surrounding the virus has been punctured, the genetic material that makes up the dangerous part – the instructions that corrupt healthy cells – will be exposed. This core quickly falls apart on its own and is rendered harmless. Once destroyed, the broken-down pieces of the virus can easily be wiped or washed away.

Part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP) for Oil Spills, OPG+1 is used by the United States Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines to clean up large oil spills. We’ve simply bottled it and have made it available for your personal and commercial cleaning needs.

OPG+1 can be used on any surface, including soil, wood, metal, cardboard, plastic, concrete, cabinets, countertops or painted surfaces. Safe and non-toxic, it causes no harm to people, pets, plants, waterways or septic systems. It does not contain any poisonous chemicals, or compounds that will fail to break down.

Besides its bio surfactant blend, OPG+1 contains other non-toxic ingredients that help make it a powerful tool in the fight against coronaviruses. The formula has a level of natural alcohol, which aids in the breakdown of viruses. It also contains over 156 different types of enzymes, which have the ability to attach to the proteins that make up the virus shell, and help disrupt their replication.

In addition to the obvious benefits of using OPG+1 to keep surfaces in your workplace virus-free, there are even more reasons to use this product. A natural grease remover, this product can be used to clean many areas of your commercial business.

It is ideal for workshop benches, countertops, floors, office surfaces and anywhere in the kitchen. OPG+1 leaves behind no residue and eliminates odors. This formula has the ability to break down oil and grease into water and CO2, to be easily wiped away. OPG+1 can be used to clean virtually any type of surface, to remove all traces of grease, oil and coronaviruses.

When rinsed down a drain leading to a waste treatment plant, the OPG+1 formula will help break down oil and grease, hydrocarbon-based chemicals, carbon-based molecules, and viruses once it reaches its destination. The formula adheres to any oily molecules and follows them down the drain, continuing to degrade them as they travel throughout the sewer system.

Other cleaners cannot make this claim, and many actually cause additional harm to waste treatment facilities and septic systems. The chemicals contained in many disinfectants and soaps are toxic and can accumulate in our water resources.

So, not only is OPG+1 a smart choice for eradicating coronaviruses on surfaces – it has the ability to help solve the problem of potential further spread of viruses throughout our communities. We invite you to learn more about this amazing product.
