If you have a cupboard full of old supplements that failed to keep working for you then Hydrogen Rich water is good news for you. If you are seeking better performance and you’re using high quality supplements but you still feel there’s something missing this article is great news for you. If you are concerned with ageing and degeneration and you’re open to something totally different in performance and health… read on… Have you ever wondered what pH stands for or where the term originated? The term “pH” was first described by Danish biochemist Søren Peter Lauritz Sørensen in 1909. pH is an abbreviation for “power of Hydrogen” where “p” is short for the German word for power, potenz and H is the element symbol for hydrogen. The pH scale is a logarithmic scale that usually runs from 1 to 14. Each whole pH value below 7 (the pH of pure water) is ten times more acidic than the higher value and each whole pH value above 7 is ten times less acidic than the one below it. For example, a pH of 3 is ten times more acidic than a pH of 4 and 100 times (10 times 10) more acidic than a pH value of 5. In laymen’s terms then the greater the pH (power of hydrogen) in a solution the more alkaline the solution will be. Most people on a health journey know the value of alkaline foods and water in preventing disease and inflammation in the body. So, let’s have a look at the Secret of Hydrogen Rich Water.
A free radical is simply an unstable molecule. To regain stability it steals energy from other molecules, then creates more unstable free radicals in the process. If a molecule is damaged by a free radical it is termed as being oxidized – similar to rust. If left unchecked, damage can occur to our tissues and organs. What is not commonly known is that most free radicals are beneficial for our immune system. They help to eliminate viruses, bacteria and even some cancer cells. Many free radicals help important metabolic functions in our body. They oxidize and clean up at a molecular level. “Good” Antioxidants stabilize unstable molecules, without damaging the beneficial free radical molecules in the process. Bad free radicals such as those caused by stress, eating fatty foods, smoking, alcohol consumption, pollution in our environment all cause an unbalance of bad free radicals in the body. This can contribute to illnesses such as cancer, arthritis, stroke, diabetes, genetic damage and ageing. One particular free radical is known to cause a lot of damage in the body – the Hydroxyl Radical. So, we have “good’ free radicals and “bad” free radicals present in the body. There is only one known substance that has the ability to discern “good” and “bad” free radicals, and leave the “good” free radicals to get on with oxidizing and cleansing the body.
The Unique Antioxidant: Molecular Hydrogen
Scientific studies have proven that Molecular Hydrogen has strong selective antioxidant potential. It reduces ONLY the nasty Hydroxyl Radical to water and leaves the good free radicals alone. Scientists have still not worked out how a minute amount of hydrogen can so effectively neutralize ONLY bad free radicals.
Inflammation – The BIG Health problem!
Any health professional will tell you that the most common ailment preceding serious disease will invariably be inflammation. Scientific studies have discovered another unique property of Hydrogen: the ability to reduce inflammation. Inflammation is a reaction to trauma or an underlying health condition such as cancer, autoimmune conditions, infections and obesity. When damage occurs the body sends in inflammatory mediators which signal to the body that it needs healing. This signal causes an increase in fluid to the affected area so that all the right molecules can easily get to the ‘battle ground’. This is called inflammation which is a natural and essential healing process. Unfortunately it comes with pain, heat, acidity and loss of function. Pharmaceutical pain killers and anti-inflammatories act on our own natural inflammatory mediators and reduce their levels in the body. Unfortunately drugs also bring with them side effects such as damage to the stomach lining. Molecular Hydrogen studies have shown reduction in the levels of inflammatory mediators, so it appears to have the same anti-inflammatory effect as drugs, but without the side effects. Because molecular hydrogen is so infinitesimally small it can penetrate far more effectively than supplements, and drinking Hydrogen rich water is the easiest way to absorb hydrogen.
In the body we have a highly refined cellular communication system which allows different parts of the body to send messages to each other to maintain balance. When we feel unwell it’s likely that our cell signalling system isn’t doing its job. To give an example of how this system works, let’s say that your heart needs more of something that your kidneys produce. The heart can’t send a cell to the kidney to ask for more. Heart cells must stay in the heart, however the heart can release ‘signal’ molecules to travel to the kidneys and tell them to release more of the required substance. The kidneys then dispatch the required substance to the heart. For a long time researchers thought that only certain proteins and minerals were able to be used as cell signalling molecules. Now we know that certain gases will also act as signal molecules. Hydrogen is one of these. When our cell signalling isn’t working properly it’s similar to having an intermittent virus in your computer. Unexplained adverse health effects ‘just happen’. Many of the oxidative damage and inflammation control capabilities of Molecular Hydrogen stem from its role as a cell signalling agent. Hydrogen acts like an anti-virus software, constantly monitoring and tweaking our cell signalling system.
Hydrogen plays a huge role in energy production in the body. Our natural metabolism converts carbohydrates, proteins and fats to ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the ‘Eveready’ molecule that stores energy. It’s like a miniature battery. ATP is then broken down as it is used up, leaving your body with acetyl CoA which is then broken down into hydrogen, oxygen and carbon. Hydrogen is fed to the mitochondria in our cells, which then use the Hydrogen to create ATP – raw energy in its purest form.
Scientific research has placed Hydrogen as a highly significant potential health strategy with potential antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and protective effects on cells and organs. The ageing of tissues in the body is believed to be caused by free radicals in the body. We store hydrogen reserves in these same tissues. Our natural ageing process dehydrates these tissue storage areas, leaving tissues exposed to free radicals, which then lead to tissue damage which we observe as ageing. Studies suggest that we can top up our Hydrogen reserves which are lost because we are slowly ‘drying up’ – ageing. Drinking Hydrogen rich water enables this topping up of hydrogen reserves.
How To Get Molecular Hydration
Molecular Hydrogen can be inhaled by bathing in hydrogen-saturated water, drinking hydrogen dissolved in water and by injection with hydrogen-saturated saline. By far the easiest way to get more Molecular Hydrogen is in Hydrogen Rich water. Natural water (99.9%) of water found on earth) is hydrogen-poor because of the strong energy connecting hydrogen with oxygen making the water molecule – H2O. The simple solution for getting hydrogen is by infusing natural water with hydrogen gas to become hydrogen saturated water. Alkaway UltraStream passes the water through a slow release magnesium-based media which reacts with the water to create H2. The UltraStream filtration process filters out chlorine, chloramines, heavy metals, most of the fluoride plus hundreds of other chemicals. Another way of obtaining Hydrogen rich water is the I♥H2 tablets. These tablets are dropped into a full bottle of water which is then immediately capped. This traps all generated H2 as the magnesium in the tablet reacts to the water in the bottle. Using this method makes it possible to increase the H2 concentration dramatically beyond normal limits. Tests have seen up to 2.6ppm generated by these tablets.
Is Drinking Hydrogen Rich Water Safe?
Being the smallest molecule in the universe hydrogen passes easily from the body. There is NO residual buildup of H2. There are no known side effects and no known contra-indications. It is impossible to overdose with H2. H2 supports the body’s natural functions. It is not a disruptor. It is 100% pure and natural.
