You know that the formula for water is H2O. There is lots of molecular hydrogen in plain water. But the issue is that the H2 in regular water is bound to the oxygen molecule. Thus, molecular hydrogen is not free to do its job. This job involves fighting the basis of all illness, aging, and disease – oxidation stress and inflammation.

Hydrogen water is water enriched with molecular hydrogen that is not bonded to oxygen molecules.

Hydrogen Water Benefits*hydrogen water comparison to fruits and vegetables

There are many studies on the healing benefits of hydrogen water. This guide provides insight into these benefits. First, let’s start with the most basic.

1. Hydration

There are different methods you can use to consume molecular hydrogen. Each method has different benefits, and we will expand on those benefits at the end of this article.

However, drinking hydrogen water is an amazing method to use if you want to stay hydrated. It seems that we are always being told to drink more water. But this is for good reason. Dehydration can lead to serious side effects. Along with this, there are many benefits of staying hydrated, including:

·       Improved cardiovascular health

·       Keeps you cool

·       Improved muscle and joint function

·       Helps the body remove wastes

·       Skin health

Drinking water can also help cut consumption of unhealthy things, like sugary sodas and artificially flavored juice drinks.

2. Relief from Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that leads to pain and swelling, mainly in the joints. A common condition, roughly two million people suffer from rheumatoid arthritis in the United States. Approximately 200,000 new cases occur each year. Although the disease mainly affects women, men can suffer from this disease as well.

Hydrogen water benefits those suffering from this autoimmune disease. A 2012 study published in Medical Gas Research found that the use of hydrogen-rich water — as compared to plain water — greatly reduced the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in 20 patients who drank hydrogen-rich water for four weeks.

Why is this?

Molecular hydrogen (H2) is both powerful and selective. When consumed, the H2 in hydrogen-rich water can neutralize free radicals, including the hydroxyl free radical (OH). Although the exact cause for rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, the hydroxyl radical is one of the main culprits in the disease.

When H2 and OH meet, the result is harmless water (H2O). H2 donates one H for the reaction. Thus, hydrogen water neutralizes the hydroxyl free radical. Also, it eases oxidative stress and symptoms from a variety of issues are alleviated.

Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes

Before we talk about how hydrogen water benefits type 2 diabetes, let’s learn a little more about this disease.

Many elements of an American diet are not good when it comes to health and wellness. Fast foods and snacks contain processed ingredients, saturated fats, and sugars that hurt the body. A diet that includes a lot of these things can lead to overweight and obesity. According to the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), nearly half (39.8%) of the American population is obese.

Obesity is a threat to health. Threats include increased mortality, increased risk of heart disease, cancers, and type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a condition where the body is unable to use insulin properly. Insulin is the key factor when it comes to turning sugar into energy. When you have type 2 diabetes, insulin is unable to do its job, leading to blood sugar levels that are too high.

Over time, high blood glucose levels can lead to problems with the kidneys, eyes, nerves, and heart.

Improved Lipid and Glucose Metabolism for Type 2 Diabetes

People with type 2 diabetes need to follow a healthy diet plan and take insulin shots to ease symptoms. Along with a plan prescribed by your general health care practitioner, the use of hydrogen water eases symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes.

According to a study published in Nutrition Research, the use of hydrogen-rich water can fight symptoms of type 2 diabetes by improving the metabolism of fats and sugars.

The study involved 30 participants with type 2 diabetes. One group drank hydrogen-rich water for eight weeks while the other drank plain water. After the trial period, researchers found that the group drinking hydrogen water saw a significant improvement in fat and sugar metabolism. These are two things that are important to the treatment of the disease.

Along with a good diet and exercise, drinking hydrogen water benefits those struggling with type 2

Decreased Symptoms of Depression

Along with physical illness, hydrogen water benefits the mind. Depression is a very common mood disorder. We all have bad days or a case of the blues. However, depression is much more than that.

When someone suffers from depression, it can feel difficult — or even impossible — to function in everyday life. Even simple tasks like brushing your teeth or taking a shower can seem impossible. Symptoms of depression include:

·       Feeling sad all the time

·       Tiredness

·       A loss of interest in things you once liked

·       Changes in weight and appetite

·       An inability to sleep or sleeping too much

·       Stomach issues

·       Aches and pains

Hydrogen Water’s Ability to Improve Mood

Depression is often treated with a combination of talk therapy and antidepressants. Antidepressants increase neurogenesis, which is the growth of nervous tissue. In a study involving mice, researchers found that hydrogen water can lead to the development and growth of brain cells. This can improve things like memory. Moreover, it can help you think clearly.

Another study involving mice published in Scientific Reports found that the use of hydrogen-rich water greatly decreased depressive behavior and periods of stress. It did this by suppressing certain biomarkers that are common in states of oxidative stress.

Muscles Aren’t as Tired After Drinking Hydrogen Water

Are you an athlete? If so, swap out your regular water for hydrogen-rich water. This type of water works wonders when it comes to decreasing the effects of things like exercise-induced muscle fatigue. A study published in Medical Gas Research found that young athletes who drank hydrogen-rich water before exercising weren’t as tired afterward. They also experienced less muscle pain.

Certain alkaline waters on the market claim similar benefits. However, most brands do not contain any hydrogen.

Cancer Prevention

One study found that hydrogen-rich water can prevent the growth of cancer cells in the tongue. Another study found that hydrogen water stopped blood vessel growth in lung cancer cells.

Improved Quality of Life in Cancer Patients

Along with cancer prevention, hydrogen-rich water greatly improves the quality of life of cancer patients.

Many cancers (depending on the type of cancer and stage) require radiation therapy. Radiation therapy is lifesaving. It is a huge part of cancer treatment and recovery. But the side effects of radiation therapy decrease the quality of life. Side effects can include:

·       Nausea and vomiting

·       Tooth decay

·       Stiffness in muscles

·       Shortness of breath

·       Fever

·       Skin problems

·       Sores in the mouth and more

A study involving patients with liver cancer found that hydrogen-rich water can improve the quality of life during radiation treatments. Hydrogen water does this by decreasing effects caused by oxidative stress without ruining the therapeutic benefits of radiation treatments.

Hydrogen Water Decreases the Appearance of Wrinkles

Want radiant skin? Hydrogen-rich water can help you attain gorgeous skin naturally.

A study published in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology found that bathing in hydrogen water decreased the appearance of wrinkles.

This research also shows that the use of hydrogen-rich water decreases the effect of damage caused by UV rays.

Wound Healing

A study involving elderly patients with bed sores found that drinking hydrogen water reduces wound size and increases recovery.

Treatment of Eczema

Atopic dermatitis or eczema is an extremely common skin condition. Although it isn’t life-threatening, it is quite irritating, as symptoms include:

·       Dry and itchy skin

·       Skin redness

·       Scaly skin

·       Painful patches of skin

·       Raised, fluid-filled bumps

A study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that drinking hydrogen water decreases these symptoms.

Hydrogen Water Improves Kidney Function

Research shows that drinking hydrogen water can protect the kidneys by reducing oxidative stress. One study found that hydrogen water can help people dealing with kidney disease.

Hydrogen Water Prevents Hearing Loss

Keep things crystal clear with hydrogen water. Research shows that drinking hydrogen water protects your hearing and can prevent hearing loss.

Improved Oral Health

In general, staying hydrated is important when it comes to oral health. This is one reason hydrogen water benefits teeth and gums. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), drinking plenty of water:

·       Strengthens teeth

·       Kills germs in the mouth

·       Fights dry mouth

Enjoy added benefits with the antibacterial effects of hydrogen help prevent gum disease.

Are There Any Side Effects to Drinking Hydrogen Water?

There are no known side effects of drinking hydrogen water.

How to Drink Hydrogen Water

Finally, hydrogen water can be used to enrich a variety of beverages, including:

·       Coffee

·       Tea 

How Long Does Hydrogen Water take to do its job?

“ORP” or Oxidation Reduction Potential is a measure of a substance’s ability to either oxidize or reduce another substance, and typically measured to determine the oxidizing or reducing potential of a water sample. It is measured by the electrodes of an ORP meter. 

 A positive reading on an ORP meter means that the substance is an oxidizing agent. 

 A negative reading indicates that the substance is a reducing agent.

Oxidation is a normal process in the human body. It may help fight pathogens and may diminish the risk of infections. However, when there is an imbalance between the antioxidants and free radicals – which are unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging, Oxidative Stress can occur. 

Oxidative Stress is a phenomenon caused by an imbalance between production and accumulation of oxygen reactive species (ROS) in cells and tissues and the ability of a biological system to detoxify these reactive products. 

Although free radicals, when maintained at low or moderate levels, are of crucial importance to human health, if not maintained at healthy levels, they can cause cellular damage. Oxidative Stress is a key contributor to the signs of aging and many diseases such as cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory conditions, cardiovascular, neurological, respiratory, and kidney diseases. 

Cellular stress is generated through the process of living: eating, sleeping, breathing, exercising and It’s inevitable. But, managing the levels of free radicals, and the oxidation levels in the body eases the oxidative stress, returning the body to homeostasis, its more natural and balanced state. 

Antioxidants are substances that can inhibit oxidation and prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals which will minimize the effects of oxidative stress on the body. 

ORP value of a substance tells us whether an oxidation-reduction reaction can happen. ORP doesn’t necessarily mean that it has any physiological antioxidant value, as mentioned above. The chemical species responsible for producing the lower ORP value is what determines whether it can act as a biological antioxidant. 

For example, a negative ORP can be produced by the addition of molecular hydrogen or aluminum metal to water, but only molecular hydrogen has physiological benefits, even though small amounts of aluminum (Al) in different oxidation states can give an ORP of over -700mV. In fact, the metal may act as an oxidant, causing the very thing you’re trying to prevent, oxidation. 

 

ORP level tested in 10ACITY™ Antioxidant Hydrogen Infused Spring Water is -700mV, and the chemical species responsible for producing the negative ORP is ultra-pure hydrogen molecules infused into the water

 

H2 may reduce oxidative stress and might improves redox homeostasis partly mediated via the Nrf2 pathway, which regulates levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, etc.

H2, like other gaseous-signaling molecules (e.g., NO*, CO, H2 S), modulates signal transduction, protein phosphorylation, and gene expression, which provides its anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, and anti-apoptotic protective effects.

 

10acity™ Antioxidant Hydrogen Infused Spring Water, is powered by Hydrogen, is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, which may boost endurance, minimizes lactic acid build up, and helps to reduces fatigue. 

 

“Until we have an anti-aging pill eat real food to stay feeling young and healthy” — 

Having good genes helps with longevity and good health.  But research indicates how we live makes the big difference.  There are many things we can do to slow down aging, prevent disease and feel young.  

To feel fully alive with an abundance of energy is good regardless of our age, and we make the decisions about what we do and put into our bodies daily + attitude is Key.

Studies have shown that those with an optimistic outlook on life live longer, healthier lives.

Eat Real food for Longevity

·         Include a variety of whole real foods not processed foods.

·         Eliminate all processed foods; they have fewer nutrients.  They are also full of chemicals that cause inflammation which stresses the body systems from functioning well.

·         Add a variety of vegetables and clean fruits to your lunch and dinner

·         Add healthy fats: fatty fish, EVO cold pressed, avocados, almonds, cashews, and walnuts.

·         Eliminate trans fats.

·         Red meat: only eat grass fed Organic beef, my choice is Wagyu Black.

·         Salt: Himalayan pink salt only, it is good for us.

·         Fast 1 day a week and abstain 1 day too.

·         Hydrate with 10ACITY™ Antioxidant Hydrogen 2.5ppm Hydrogen Infused Spring Water  

Get good rest and sound sleep

·         Poor sleep quality may be linked to increased build-up of beta-amyloid plaques in the brains of older adults. Alzheimer’s is a sure sign of aging. 

·         Studies show that people who do not get a good night’s sleep or who do not get enough sleep are more likely to get sick.

·         Sleep cleans the brain of toxins.
