Abstract

L-cysteine is an essential amino acid and the basic building block of glutathione (denoted as the mother of all antioxidants). The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment on the physicochemical and thermal properties of L-cysteine. The test sample was divided into control and treated samples. No treatment was given to the control sample, while the other portion remotely received the Biofield Treatment by a renowned Biofield Energy Healer, Alice Branton, and was termed as the treated sample. The particle size values were significantly reduced by 10.78%(d10), 13.46%(d50), 14.84%(d90), and 13.95%{D(4, 3)}, thus, the specific surface area was significantly increased by 14.28% in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The PXRD peak intensities and crystallite sizes were significantly altered ranging from -79.18% to 335.64% and -82.68% to 294.32%, respectively; however, the average crystallite size was significantly reduced by 42.93% in the treated sample compared to the control sample. The latent heat of decomposition corresponding to 1st and 2nd peak of the treated sample was significantly reduced by 18.84% and 7.05%, respectively, compared with the control sample. The total weight loss was reduced by 2.53%; however, the residue weight was significantly increased by 784.73% in the treated sample in contrast to the control sample. Thus, the Biofield Treated L-cysteine might be more efficacious and advantageous to prepare pharmaceutical/nutraceutical dosage forms with improved solubility and bioavailability profile compared to the untreated sample, which can be used against various diseases/disorders such as bronchitis, COPD, psychosis, stress, aging, etc.

Conclusion

The study results showed that the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment significantly impacted the physicochemical and thermal properties of L-cysteine such as particle size distribution, crystallite sizes, latent heat, etc. The particle size values of the Biofield Energy Treated L-cysteine at d10, d50, d90, and D(4, 3) were observed to be significantly reduced by 10.78%, 13.46%, 14.84%, and 13.95%, respectively, compared to the control sample. It resulted in the increase of the specific surface area of the Biofield Energy Treated L-cysteine by 14.28% as compared to the untreated sample. The reduction in particle sizes and increase in the surface area might help in improving the solubility and dissolution rate of L-cysteine that further enhances its absorption and bioavailability profile in the body. The PXRD peak intensities and crystallite sizes of those peaks of the Biofield Energy Treated L-cysteine sample showed significant alterations ranging from -79.18% to 335.64% and -82.68% to 294.32%, respectively as compared to the untreated sample. Also, the Biofield Energy Treatment affected the average crystallite size of the Biofield Energy Treated L-cysteine sample that was observed to be significantly reduced by 42.93%, compared to the control sample. The Biofield Energy Treated sample showed slight alterations in the peak temperatures corresponding to 1st and 2nd peak by 0.57% and -0.22%, respectively in comparison to the untreated sample. However, the ?Hdecomposition corresponding to 1st and 2nd peak was significantly reduced by 18.84% and 7.05%, respectively, as compared to the untreated L-cysteine sample. The total weight loss was reduced by 2.53%, however, the residue amount was significantly increased by 784.73% in the Biofield Energy Treated L-cysteine compared with the control sample. Besides, the Tmax of the treated L-cysteine sample was decreased by 1.57%, compared with the control sample. Hence, the thermal analysis data indicated that there was a significant alteration in the thermal stability of the Biofield Energy Treated sample in comparison to the control sample. Overall, the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment was found to have a significant impact on the L-cysteine sample that might help in improving the absorption and bioavailability profile of it by generating its new polymorphic form, altering its crystallinity, reducing the particle size, and improving the surface area. Such alterations in the Trivedi Effect® Treated L-cysteine can show the better performance in its different formulation forms, which might offer better therapeutic response against various diseases and disorders, i.e., respiratory health illness, bronchitis, COPD, psychiatric disorders, reducing aging process, balancing blood sugar, etc.
