Abstract

Magnesium gluconate is usually used as a dietary supplement for the prevention and treatment of hypomagnesemia as well as to maintain the overall quality of life. The present study was designed to evaluate the impact of The Trivedi Effect®-Energy of Consciousness Healing Treatment on the physicochemical and thermal properties of magnesium gluconate using PXRD, PSA, DSC, and TGA/DTG analysis. Magnesium gluconate was divided into two parts – one part was control (without Biofield Energy Treatment), while another part was treated with Energy of Consciousness Healing Treatment (The Trivedi Effect®) remotely by the renowned Biofield Energy Healer, Alice Branton and defined as Biofield Energy Treated sample. The PXRD analysis showed that the relative peak intensities and crystallite sizes of the characteristic diffraction peaks in the treated sample were significantly altered from -73.55% to 17.21% and from -14.28% to 125.11%, respectively compared with the control sample. The average crystallite size was significantly increased by 19.29% in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The particle size values at d10, d50, d90, and D(4, 3) of the treated sample was significantly increased by 2.03%, 70.92%, 142.25%, and 95.42%, respectively compared with the control sample. Thus, the surface area of treated sample was significantly decreased by 21.34% compared to the control sample. The melting point of the Biofield Energy Treated sample (170.16°C) was decreased by 0.19% compared the control sample (170.48°C). The latent heat of fusion in the treated sample was increased by 3.11% compared to the control sample. The TGA analysis exhibited three steps thermal degradation and the total weight loss of the treated sample was increased by 0.29% compared to the control sample. The maximum thermal degradation temperatures (Tmax) of the 1st and 2nd peaks were decreased by 2.86% and 1.97%, respectively, while 2nd and 3rd peaks were increased by 1.14% and 0.94% respectively, in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The thermal analysis revealed that the thermodynamic stability of the treated sample was changed compared with the control sample. The Energy of Consciousness Healing Treatment might produce a crystalline polymorphic form of magnesium gluconate, which could show better powder flowability and appearance with altered thermal stability compared to the untreated sample. Hence, Biofield Energy Treated magnesium gluconate would be advantageous in designing better nutraceutical/pharmaceutical formulations that might provide better therapeutic responses against inflammatory diseases, immunological disorders, cancer, diabetes mellitus, stress, aging, etc.

Conclusion

The Trivedi Effect® - Energy of Consciousness Healing Treatment exhibited significant effects on the physicochemical and thermal properties of magnesium gluconate. The sharp and intense peaks in the PXRD diffractograms of the control and treated magnesium gluconate revealed that both the samples were crystalline in nature. The relative peak intensities of the characteristic diffraction peaks in the treated sample were significantly altered from -73.55% to 17.21%. Similarly, the crystallite size of the characteristic diffraction peaks in the treated sample was significantly altered from -14.28% to 125.11% compared to the control sample. The average crystallite size was significantly increased by 19.29% in the treated sample compared with the control sample. The particle size values at d10, d50, d90, and D(4, 3) in Alice’s treated magnesium gluconate was significantly increased by 2.03%, 70.92%, 142.25%, and 95.42%, respectively compared with the control sample. The surface area of treated magnesium gluconate was significantly decreased by 21.34% with respect to the control sample. The melting point of the Biofield Energy Treated sample (170.16°C) was lowered by 0.19% compared the control sample (170.48°C). The latent heat of fusion in the Biofield Energy treated magnesium gluconate was increased by 3.11% compared to the control sample. The TGA analysis exhibited three steps thermal degradation in both samples. The total weight loss of the treated sample was increased by 0.29% to the control sample. The maximum thermal degradation temperatures (Tmax) of the first two peaks were decreased by 2.86% and 1.97%, respectively, while 2nd and 3rd peaks were increased by 1.14% and 0.94%, respectively in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The DSC and TGA/DTG analysis revealed that the thermal stability of the treated sample was altered compared with the control sample. The Energy of Consciousness Healing Treatment might produce a polymorphic form of magnesium gluconate, which could show better powder flowability and appearance with altered thermal stability compared to the untreated sample. Thus, The Alice’s Energy of Consciousness Healing Treated magnesium gluconate would be very useful to design better nutraceutical and pharmaceutical formulations for the treatment of cancer, diabetes mellitus, allergies, septic shock, inflammatory diseases, immunological disorders, asthma, arrhythmias, acute myocardial infarction, gestational hypertension, preeclampsia, eclampsia, hearing loss, oxidative stress induced ischemia/reperfusion injury, etc.
