5 Benefits Of Hydrogen Water

When you turn on the faucet, you probably expect to see a cascade of clean, safe drinking water. However, the reality is that the U.S. water supply contains a variety of contaminants that have adverse effects on the human body. According to the Environmental Protection Agency reports, U.S. drinking water often contains elevated levels of microorganisms and chemicals ranging from E. coli to lead and arsenic. Repeated exposure to these toxins leads to gastrointestinal illnesses, developmental delays and learning disorders in children, hormone disruptions, and even cancer and other chronic diseases.

Children who consume more water than adults relative to their size are at the highest risk for complications from drinking contaminated water, followed by older Americans and those with compromised immune systems. What can you do to protect your family's health? 

As early as 1798, hydrogen was believed to have medicinal properties, including the ability to treat inflammation. However, the health benefits of drinking hydrogen water have only been widely recognized in recent years. Read on to learn more about molecular hydrogen water's potential benefits. 

What Is Hydrogen Water?

Water molecules are typically composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Hydrogenated water is the same as regular water, except that it’s been infused with two extra hydrogen molecules by a hydrogen generator. When the hydrogen-rich water is converted into gas, the antioxidant activity from the extra molecules creates antioxidant water that may offer therapeutic benefits to those who drink it.

One of the benefits of hydrogen water is that it's more alkaline than tap and bottled water. Water straight out of the tap has a pH balance of 7.5, while bottled waters on the market today have a pH balance between 6.9 and 7.5. Alkaline water infused with hydrogen molecules has a pH balance between 8 and 9. Clinical studies have shown that alkaline water improves overall health and well-being.

Main Benefits of Hydrogen Water

To make it safer for children and healthy adults, the hydrogenation process removes plain water's impurities and restores lost essential minerals. Molecular hydrogen is a natural gas, so there's no concern about introducing harsh chemicals into your family's water supply. Hydrogen rich water has the potential to:

  • Improve metabolism 
  • Reduce fatigue and increase energy
  • Boost immune function
  • Support proper hydration
  • Enhance physical performance
  • Prevent premature aging and chronic disease
  • Support brain and cardiovascular health
  • Revitalize the skin
  • Reduce inflammation

Investing in an at-home hydrogen water machine is an environmentally friendly, sustainable alternative to a single-use bottle of water. These systems are affordable and easy to use, providing clean, purified drinking water right in your own home. Experience all of the potential benefits of hydrogen-infused water, including:

1. Enhanced Athletic Performance

While exercise is vital to long-term health, intense athletic training and aerobic activity may cause oxidative stress — an imbalance between antioxidants and free radicals that damages cells and other molecular structures. High oxidation levels also prevent the body from adequately converting food into energy. The antioxidants in hydrogen-rich water lower oxidation levels, allowing your body to create energy with ease. 

Water electrolysis infuses hydrogenated water with natural antioxidants like calcium and magnesium. For serious athletes, antioxidant minerals in hydrogen water may reverse oxidative effects, reduce lactic acid buildup during exercise, increase energy levels, enhance athletic performance, and lead to quicker recovery times. 

2. Improved Hydration

To maintain the optimal health benefits of hydrogen water, the recommended intake is two to three liters of water per day. When your water tastes great, you will likely meet that recommendation. Hydrogen-infusing water filters that contain calcium sulfite remove 99.9% of chlorine from your drinking water, improving flavor and leaving you with cleaner, healthier water.

3. Prevent Aging and Diseases

Left unchecked, free radicals can damage organs and tissue over time, leading to metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular, pulmonary, and neurological diseases, diabetes, and cancer. Hydrogen water may protect against chronic conditions that shorten your lifespan and contain anti-aging properties that keep you feeling and looking younger longer. The powerful antioxidants in hydrogen may neutralize free radicals and reduce the oxidation of cells, aiding in the prevention of premature aging.

Because human gut bacteria naturally produce liters of hydrogen on a daily basis, you can feel confident that hydrogen-infused water is a natural, healthy choice for your family. Adding hydrogen water to your diet may help boost your body's natural defense against low energy levels, allergies, skin irritation, and inflammation.

4. Support Brain Health

Since the human brain is 85% water, proper hydration is vital to keeping it healthy. The effect of water on brain health and cognitive function is well-documented. Hydrogen water may improve mental clarity, combat declines in cognitive acuity associated with aging, and fight fatigue. Access to a hydrogen water system may lead to heightened concentration, improved memory, and increased overall productivity.

5. Boost Immune System and Skin Health 

Autoimmune conditions such as eczema and allergies result from inflammation, and chronic inflammation wears down the body's defenses.  Hydrogen-rich water removes impurities that may trigger the inflammatory process and infuses your water with beneficial minerals and healing properties to help alleviate these conditions.

Give hydrogen-infused water a try for a chance to experience clearer skin, fewer seasonal illnesses, better hydration and digestion, and quality sleep.
