QS FAQ

What is the difference between Original Quinton™ and QuintEssential™?

Original Quinton™ and QuintEssential™ are the exact same product. The only difference is the packaging. QuintEssential™ products come in user-friendly, Silver Seal vials, while Original Quinton™ products come in glass vials. 

What is the difference between Original Quinton™ and other seawater?

When critical minerals are missing or represented in deficient amounts, our bodies fail to optimally metabolize and convert amino acids and enzymes into energy. Quinton™ seawater contains the totality of the elements of the Periodic Table. The extracellular fluid provides the cell, through electro-osmosis, with all the necessary substances for its metabolism. The QUALITY of the extracellular fluid, as determined by the chemical nature and electronic signature of its constituents, is fundamental to ensure PROPER CELLULAR RESPIRATION AND NUTRITION. It is the best NATURAL support and regenerator of all cellular mechanisms.

Quinton™ seawater should be administered directly into the mouth and held for 30 to 60 seconds to allow the intra-oral absorption of the minerals, trace elements and marine co-factors.

Who is Quicksilver Scientific?

Quicksilver Scientific is the exclusive distributor of Original Quinton™ products in North America. Original Quinton™ is produced by Laboratoires Quinton in Alicante, Spain.

What is Quinton Marine Plasma?

Quinton™ is a nutrient-rich marine fluid that is harvested from the depths of an oceanic plankton bloom. Quinton™  is not just seawater. Discovered by French physiologist and humanitarian, René Quinton, in 1897,  Quinton™ is a raw, natural, nutrient and nutraceutical for restoring and balancing the Biological Terrain. Quinton™ modulates our immune system and is used to regulate our vital functions (homeostasis), providing everything our cells need to function properly.

Can I dilute Hypertonic to make my own Isotonic?

René Quinton discovered a precise method of creating Isotonic. To produce it as he did, you would need sophisticated measurement machines as well as a sterile environment. Since these requirements are beyond the scope of the average person, we advise against trying to do it.

What is the difference between Original Quinton™ marine plasma and other seawater?



Original Quinton™ has been harvested for the last 110 years from a particular plankton bloom using the same harvesting method developed by René Quinton (a national hero for the lives he saved in France ). No other seawater product available has this level of history, credibility and research behind it. We do not know of any other seawater harvesting from this same bloom and no other company uses the exact same methodology.

We have run many tests comparing other seawater to Original Quinton™
To date, we have not found any others that are COLD micro-filtered multiple times – as opposed to heat pasteurized or subjected to UV radiation. These less expensive processes destroy the active components in the water. The reductions in activity in other seawater repeatedly show up in third party research. Though we believe there is benefit from most purified seawater, Original Quinton™ is in a class of efficacy by itself that far exceeds any other in the marketplace due to the fact that René Quinton was the pioneer of the market. Simply said, his method of collection, storage, and packaging are family secrets.
