The investigation concerned the effects of low-frequency vibrations on a system consisting of two biochemically active components: methylene blue dye and ascorbic acid. Each component can be reversibly oxidized and reduced. This system allows us to trace the effect that a low-frequency vibration field has on the reciprocal reduction-oxidation process and detect specific features of this type of exposure. We discovered that reduction-oxidation processes in such systems do not accelerate but slow down when exposed to low frequencies, unlike those in the previously studied clathrate and chelate structures. We observe an inhibition effect concerning the sonochemical process in a low-frequency acoustic field. We performed a qualitative estimation of the effect
