Science and Chemistry of Chocolate Rescue


The active component in Chocolate Rescue for Dogs is a porous molecule with
a unique 3D lattice structure containing a network of interconnected channels,
containing cavities and pores. These channels are lined with oxygen atoms that
can form hydrogen bonds with polar molecules like the toxins found in
chocolate. The size of these pores and channels allows the selective absorption
of specific toxins based on size, shape, and polarity. The specific mechanism
by which the toxins in chocolate are attracted and encapsulated involves the
formation of hydrogen bonds and van der Waals interactions between these toxins and the internal surface of the pores of our therapy.

The toxins in chocolate are the methylxanthine molecules caffeine and theobromine. These polar molecules contain several functional groups, including amine, amide, and carbonyl groups, which can form hydrogen bonds with the oxygen atoms on the internal surface of the pores of our Chocolate Rescue molecule. Our product’s framework also contains polar sites which can interact with the polar functional groups on the caffeine and theobromine molecules through electrostatic attraction.

The size and shape of these pores also play a crucial role in determining the
selectivity and capacity for caffeine and theobromine by excluding larger
molecules and allowing smaller molecules to pass through without taking up any binding sites. Simply put, if a molecule is too large, it will be rejected
because it won’t fit into a binding site. If a molecule is too small, it
will pass through the central cavity, again without attaching to our
therapeutic molecule. If a molecule matches the size, shape and polarity
requirements of our therapy, like the toxins found in chocolate do – only then
will a strong encapsulation interaction happen, preventing the toxin from being
absorbed by your dog and allowing it to be eliminated through the GI tract.
This is how Chocolate Rescue for Dogs is so effective in such small amounts.
