"Particles"...Yes, so now find out EXACTLY what those particles consist of and how they are constructed in the home made stuff?
What does it matter to you anyway? Unless you are an expert or have a laboratory in your kitchen it shouldn't matter to you, or anyone else who makes this stuff? Keep things simple if you aren't studying a Diploma in Chemistry or Biology, even then you won't read anything related to the home made product.
Without necessary laboratory analysis and ancillary equipment it doesn't matter to people with the home made stuff. All you can make is the best can be made in your kitchen. And don't look at those TEM images blah blah on the Internet, they only show what is on a glass slide, and if they did, they would only show the best dispersion in a *part* of that drop on that glass slide, what did the rest of that sample showed? I don't believe anyone has shown in vivo of OUR home made product? Plenty of the 'CS' stuff, but that is not what you are making in the home kitchen.
Don't get tangled up with the intricacies, that only brings in techno-babble and double talk, keep it simple. The more you read, the more you will *need* to learn, it is not an exact Science in vivo anyway. Still more needs to be understood about this stuff by researchers...If there are any *genuine* researchers left nowadays?
So long as your product is clear or yellow and has no 'mud' laying in the bottom of your vessel or having to filter it blah blah, then it's as good as it will ever be made. It will be equal and is as effective health wise, or possibly better, than any shop bought stuff.
Both the bought and home made product is as efficacious. Keep things simple, as Beck did, but with better water of course than he did.
