Could Human Photosynthesis power the future?

Dr. Solis has developed a technology that utilizes the properties of melanin – the animal analogue to chlorophyll. His melanin based (polihydroxyindol) photo-cell absorbs a broad spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, and converts it into electricity. He has also developed a pharmaceutical claimed to enhance human "photosynthesis" for increased health.

Plants utilize the green pigment chlorophyll to absorb energy from sunlight to breakdown carbon dioxide into sugars. This is well known, and taught in probably every elementary school across the world. What is not as well known, is that the dark colored pigment called melanin found in the skin of humans and other mammals can absorb various types of electromagnetic radiation. In fact, melanin appears capable of absorbing a much broader spectrum of such radiation than chlorophyll. This was proven when scientists noticed various fungi growing in radioactive environments actually seemed to be thriving. Testing of these fungi proved the melanin producing their dark color was absorbing gamma radiation and converting it to energy. The article, "Ionizing Radiation Changes the Electronic Properties of Melanin and Enhances the Growth of Melanized Fungi" published by Ekaterina Dadachova reviews this discovery. 

Long before the above article was published, Mexican researcher Dr. Arturo Solνs Herrera (medical surgeon, ophthalmologist, and pharmacologist) of the Human Photosynthesis Study Center was performing research on disorders of the human eye. His team started discovering the importance of the pigment Melanin (known by the chemical name polihydroxyindol) in regards to eye conditions. For some reason, Melanin seemed to protect the tissues of the eye, but his team could not completely understand why the protective effect was taking place. After extracting and applying melanin therapeutically to the eyes of patients, they saw results they claim were impressive.

As time passed it was discovered that melanin was actually collecting energy from electromagnetic radiation, and using it to split water atoms into hydrogen, oxygen, and four additional electrons. This process can also act in reverse. Such a reaction is not exothermic (releasing energy) but endothermic (storing energy). Dr. Auturo Herrera claims that the hydrogen atom is then sent to cells where it can be recombined with oxygen to produce energy (human body version of a fuel cell). The cells can then use this energy to supplement the sugars the body provides them. In this process, melanin acts like a catalyst which promotes the chemical reaction, but is not consumed by it. 

Dr. Herrera goes so far as to say that melanin is a "super chlorophyll" due to its many advantages over regular chlorophyll. He goes on to say that, "melanin is to the animal kingdom what chlorophyll is to the plant kingdom." A few of these advantages are claimed to include "hundreds of reaction centers" compared to the single reaction center in chlorophyll, the ability to absorb energy from a far broader portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, and capability to function for years outside of human tissue. Chlorophyll is claimed to become totally inactive after only twenty seconds. 

The Human Photosynthesis Study Center claims that one third of the energy available to a human being is produced by melanin absorbing electromagnetic radiation, and splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen to produce energy. If this claim turns out to be valid, it could have tremendous implications in our understanding of life processes, cellular processes, human health, and disease. Dr. Herrera claims that increased levels of hydrogen in the mitochondria (the energy producing organelles inside of human cells) improves their function, and may lower the production of free radicals. This could be very significant, because over time free radical production produces DNA deletions in the mitochondria that cannot be effectively repaired. Unlike nuclear DNA, mitochondrial DNA is located in loops. Once these loops of DNA are damaged the efficiency of the mitochondria is reduced, more free radicals are produced, and a cascade of damage begins. Mitochondrial damage is implicated in everything from Alzheimer, dementia, cardiovascular disease, and many other disorders. 

Dr. Patrick Flanagan (who has wirelessly transmitted 1 MW through a mountain, among other amazing feats) is another researcher who is studying the function of hydrogen in the mitochondria, and has products available to augment that function. Last week he presented his technology in China at the invitation of the president of China (we plan to do a story about that soon), and was treated like a superhero.

A Unique Pharmaceutical

To enhance the benefits of melanin, the Human Photosynthesis Study Center has developed a pharmaceutical drug called, "QIAPI 1."  The center claims this drug can increase human photosynthesis and help treat many different diseases and disorders. It is being sold on their website for the "sale price" of $75 dollars. 

(Please be warned that the product may or may not be safe. As far as we know it has not been approved by the FDA. We are not advising anyone to purchase the product, but are simply providing information about its existence. Anyone who is considering purchasing the product should consult their doctor, and do their own research.)

The box that contains the drug has the Spanish words "Analogo pirrolico" on it, which translates to "pyrrole analog" or "similar to pyrrole." A quick search for the meaning of pyrrole resulted in the following definition.

"Pyrrole: One of a class of organic heterocyclic compounds of five-membered diunsaturated ring structure composed of four carbon atoms and one nitrogen atom. The simplest member of the pyrrole family is pyrrole itself, a basic heterocyclic compound; colorless to pale yellow, toxic oil with pungent taste and similar to chloroform odor; insoluble in water; soluble in alcohol, ether, and dilute acids; boils at 129 - 131 C; polymerizes in light. Pyrrole ring system is involved in coloured products (green pigment, chlorophyll; red, hemoglobin; , blue, indigo) in nature. Pyrrolidine, the saturated tetrahydropyrrole, is part of the structures of amino acids (proline, hydroxyproline and hygrine). Pyrroline is a pyrrole in which one of the two solid bonds has been hydrogenated. Pyrrole and its derivatives are widely used as an intermediate in synthesis of pharmaceuticals, medicines, agrochemicals, dyes, photographic chemicals, perfumes and other organic compounds. They are also used as catalysts for polymerization process, corrosion inhibitors, preservatives, and as solvents for resins and terpenes. They are used in metallurgical processes. They are useful in the intensive study of transition-metal complex catalyst chemistry for uniform polymerization, luminescence chemistry and spectrophotometric analysis."

The Human Photosynthesis website gives the following description.

"QIAPI 1 is result of 20 years of continued research. Actually is our best seller product because it's effects over the body induce an extraordinary generalized improvement. The quality of life of the patient is modified in a positive manner markedly. Usually, a patient could begin the treatment with just two drops sublingually each three hours during day. Please don't drink alcohol, nor energetic drinks, neither iron supplements. They are two concentrations: QIAPI 1 with blue box (normal concentration) and QIAPI 1 with red box that is the double of concentration and is recommended for difficult cases."

A very informative abstract gives another description of the drug and how it could be used to treat disease.

Aim: It is widely accepted that a neuronal energy crisis, cerebral hypometabolism and vascular hypoperfusion are major and potentially treatable contributors to the loss of function in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD). In addition, recently we have found an unexpected capacity for melanin to dissociate water and aid in the production of energy in the process. We hypothesize that melanin can be used as a new and more effective therapeutic approach in the treatment of AD patients. The E4 isoform of apolipoprotein E (ApoE) is involved in cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disorders and is the most prevalent risk factor for late onset of sporadic AD. Moreover, ApoE4 transgenic (Tg+) mice are appropriate models for studying the pathogenesis and preclinical treatment of ApoE-related cognitive deficits associated with late onset and sporadic AD. The goal of our work is to potentially target melanin's dissociation properties for therapy of the disease by using a combination of a selective mitochondrial antioxidant plus a melanin analogue developed by Dr. Solis (QUIAPI-1) both in combination with our recently developed brain exercise program. Clinical data were compared to our animal study on ApoE4 mice who received selective mitochondrial antioxidants acetyl-L-Carnitine and R-α -Lipoic acid (ALCAR+LA). Methods: This study applies the brain hypometabolism paradigm to AD patients in order to analyze cognitive function in patients who receive ALCAR+LA, Omega-3-6-9 Fish, Flax, Borage oil as well as Coenzyme Q-10 and QUIAPI-1 , along with diet changes in combination with our recently developed brain activation program (a home-based protocol involving mild physical exercise and cognitive training). The average years post treatment. In addition, our animal study applies the vascular dementia paradigm to ApoE4 Tg+ mice in order to analyze the effects of the selective mitochondrial antioxidants ALCAR+LA on cerebral blood flow (CBF), neuropathology, brain and vessel ultrastructural abnormalities and behavior. Results: Our clinical results showed that patients who received a combination of mitochondrial antioxidants and QIAPI-1 exhibited the maximum cognitive improvement at the end of 24 months of treatment. The maximum cognitive improvement was seen with the combined treatment in MMSE, attention, memory, naming, construction, clock drawing, verbal fluency, and Ruff Frontal Fluency tests. By the end of 24 months of treatment, significant improvement was observed, especially in attention, construction and clock drawing, when patients received the combined treatment. In addition, this group also showed that in all categories there were no signs of a decrease and/or decline below the base line for the entire period of treatment. ApoE4 associated factors reduced the CBF gradually and created brain hypoperfusion when compared to the wild-type (WT). The differences in CBF were greatest as animals aged from 6 weeks to 12 months. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with colloidal gold immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization using human and mouse DNA probes showed structural damage and mitochondrial DNA overproliferation and/or deletion in the young and aged microvessels endothelium of ApoE4 animals, extending to the cytoplasm of perivascular cells, perivascular nerve terminals, hippocampal neurons, and glial cells. Spatial and temporal memory tests showed a trend in improving cognitive function in ApoE4 Tg+ mice who were fed the selective mitochondrial antioxidants (ALCAR+LA).

Conclusions: Our conclusion is that the potential pharmacologic modulation of brain hypometabolism by using human photosynthesis compounds such as selective mitochondrial antioxidants and a melanin analogue, and/or precursor represents a completely new and more effective strategy to treat Alzheimer and/or other dementia types. Moreover, further expanding the examination of the ultrastructural degeneration caused by aging, especially under cardiovascular disease complications, is likely to contribute to our understanding of neurodegenerative etiology and will indicate a new avenue for the development of novel prophylactic and treatment strategies by offering selective mitochondrial antioxidants like ALCAR+LA and QIAPI 1 to the demented patients.


This drug seems very interesting, but relatively little information about it can be found on their website. The exact composition of the drug does not appear to be specified. Additionally, there is no information as to what extent it enhances "human photosynthesis." Even if it does enhance human photosynthesis significantly, there is no hard evidence that such an increase would be beneficial. There could be unknown side effects. 

Electrical Power from Melanin

Dr. Herrera has also developed a technology that produces electrical output using melanin's ability to absorb electromagnetic energy and split water. His photo-cells utilize a solution of melanin in water and a pair of electrodes. A voltage potential is sent from the solution to the electrodes that can power LEDs. Recently, he was able to produce 600mV and 200mA from a photo-cell. The output was used to power a music player. He believes that the output can be increased, and could eventually power a vehicle that would never need to be re-fueled. 

Think of a solar cell, but in this case, the electromagnetic spectrum is much wider than just the visible spectrum, so the melanin-based cell could harness radio waves, infrared (heat), and more, allowing it to pull power from a much wider array of environmental free energy.  Herrera believes that the energy being produced by the Melanin is from a broad portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Everything from gamma rays to infrared to light.

He has submitted a series of patent applications covering his technology. The following is a partial list.

The latest development is that he claims to have developed a device that utilizes melanin to power an LED based light bulb for one hundred years. This device is called the Bat-Gen. A search for the official website of the Bat-Gen was unsuccessful.

If the human body does obtain energy via photo-synthesis then it is something that needs to be further researched. The implications are enormous. It also brings up many questions. For example.. 

Which frequencies of electromagnetic waves are optimally absorbed by human melanin?

What is the most optimum spectrum of electromagnetic waves for humans to expose themselves to?

Can drugs that increase human photosynthesis improve human health?

Hopefully, more scientists and medical doctors will investigate these questions!
