I had no idea blue jeans saved the world from malaria…did you? Of course, it wasn’t the actual denim that gave jeans their blue hue; the industrial dye used gave them the blue hue. So, how did this peculiar discovery occur? 

Methylene Blue And Malaria

The Plasmodium parasite causes malaria. Around 1891, a search for malaria parasites in birds, reptiles, and mammals was greatly assisted by a new staining method called methylene blue discovered by Yuri Romanovsky in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was used with eosin, fluorescent acidic compounds that bind to and form salts. Researchers used this staining method to examine the blood of malaria patients and noted that the parasites were damaged in patients treated with quinine.  Romanovsky concluded that the therapeutic effect of quinine was due to its action on the parasites and not directly on the patient- the first evidence of a drug treatment destroying an infecting microorganism. 

However, the discovery received little attention at the time. Later that year in Berlin, a Nobel Prize-winning German physician and scientist, Paul Ehrlich, reasoned that if the malaria parasites could take up the methylene blue stain, they might also be poisoned by it in vivo. He administered the dye to two patients who were suffering from malaria, and both recovered. 

MB interferes with the parasite’s ability to replicate and enhances the effects of other antimalarial drugs. Specifically, MB inhibits the enzyme dihydroorotate dehydrogenase, which is crucial for the malaria parasite’s survival and proliferation. Additionally, MB’s oxidative properties can damage the parasite. Its rapid action helps reduce the parasite load in the bloodstream, contributing to quicker recovery and decreased disease transmission.   

This shift in application marked a significant evolution from a textile dye to a medicinal treatment, highlighting the versatile nature of chemical compounds in various fields. 

Methylene blue was the first drug the FDA approved in the 1800s. How appropriate—an industrial dye. The FDS—known as the “Fraud and Death Association” to some—was introduced under Rockefeller Medicine; methylene blue (MB) was first introduced in 1778 in Germany. 

Methylene Blue Under The Rona Regime

I first tried MB in 2019 at a health expo before the P$andemic. Always on the cutting edge, HoneyColony began offering it to customers in 2022, but it still hasn’t hit the mainstream. However, it’s all the buzz in the alternative health space now. 

One study identified MB as a potential means of preventing and treating COVID-19.  Methylene blue (MB) has been proven to have antiviral effects against SARS-CoV-2. The results of in vivo and in vitro studies of using MB in COVID-19 showed that MB can simultaneously affect most of the hosts’ harmful responses caused by SARS-CoV-2 infection due to its anti-hypoxemia, anti-oxidant, immune system modulator, and antiviral properties. MB is associated with reducing the possibility of infection and mortality and can be used as a safe, effective, cheap, and readily available treatment option with minimal side effects for the clinical management of COVID-19.

People are also reporting that MB is helping with Long-Covid, ATP production, urinary tract infections, and a rare blood condition called methemoglobinemia. There are many other health benefits beyond these as well.  

The “Universal Supplement” 

Antioxidants help neutralize the effects of stress and aging. They’re necessary for a healthy brain, nerves, and muscles (including the heart).

A deficit may cause rapid aging, emotional instability, and loss of mental power. Methylene Blue works as both an oxidizer and anti-oxidant to restore vitality.

Some of the benefits of Methylene Blue:

  • Helps calm nerves and stress
  • May improve sleep and energy
  • May improve immunity
  • May boost brain functions, mental alertness, and good moods
  • Helps regulate homocysteine levels
  • Plays a role in neurological activity
  • Enhances growth and repair of all cells
  • Aids in metabolizing carbohydrates and fats
  • May improve protein synthesis
  • Helps protect against nerve damage
  • Especially great for vegetarians who are often nutrient-deficient
  • Mood and/or energy lift

Pharmaceutical-grade MB has many significant benefits, but the source of MB can be the difference between a safe version and one riddled with heavy metals. Our Methyl Blue, Bee Blue, is pharmaceutical grade, and we NOW offer it in a 0.5-ounce bottle to allow you to try it without breaking the bank. Then, once you know how well it works for you, you can get a two-ounce bottle. A bottle of Methylene Blue in your medicine cabinet is a good idea!
