Hydrogen Water FAQ

What is Hydrogen water?

Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical element, constituting approximately 75% of universe. We normally call “Hydrogen” refers to molecular hydrogen or H2. Since individual hydrogen atoms only possess on electron, they often bind together to form stable H2 molecules.

One of the most interesting findings concerning hydrogen as an antioxidant is the discovery that it is a novel antioxidant because it scavenges the toxic hydroxyl radical (the strongest of the oxidant species) and the potent oxidant peroxynitrite (formed by the reaction of superoxide and nitric oxide), but is far less effective in scavenging physiological radicals such as superoxide and nitric oxide, important (at low concentrations) as signalling molecules. Moreover, hydrogen is able to diffuse extremely rapidly into tissue and “effectively reaches the nucleus and mitochondria, suggesting“ preventive effects on lifestyle-related diseases, cancer, and the aging process. Hydrogen also passes through the blood-brain barrier, although most antioxidant compounds cannot do this.

What is active oxygen species?

Active oxygen species or free radicals are considered to cause extensive oxidative damage to biological macromolecules, which brings about a variety of diseases as well as aging. The ideal scavenger for active oxygen should be ‘active hydrogen’. ‘Active hydrogen’ can be produced in reduced water near the cathode during electrolysis of water. Reduced water exhibits high pH, low dissolved oxygen (DO), extremely high dissolved molecular hydrogen (DH), and extremely negative redox potential (RP) values…

What is the taste of hydrogen water as a drink?

Hydrogen has no smell and no color. So, there is no difference from ordinary water when it is taken as a drink. But the water containing hydrogen has tinier water particles, providing softness and smooth feeling of swallowing.

Is it okay to take a large amount of hydrogen as a drink?

Differentiating from oxygen that causes oxidation, it is recommended to take a large amount of hydrogen. Hydrogen easily gets diffused within the body and the remaining hydrogen is discharged through exhalation. Regardless of the amount of drinking, hydrogen is discharged in urine or sweat.

What is the effective storage period of hydrogen water as a drink?

It is best to drink fresh hydrogen water which has just come out of the generator. Active hydrogen itself is stable as long as it is not heated and is not easily removed by de-airing, whisking or freezing. However, hydrogen is very light and easy to vaporize into the air. So, it is recommended to drink hydrogen water within 1~3 hours of generation.

Why should we drink hydrogen water?

Drinking hydrogen is helpful for treating active oxygen-caused disease because it removes active oxygen only, excepting beneficial oxygen. Modern people tend to use health functional food containing antioxidant substances such as vitamin C, vitamin E and polyphenol having reducing power in order to cope with oxidation. These foods are certainly helpful for health. On the other hand, rich hydrogen is decomposed to atomic hydrogen (active hydrogen) as soon as it is absorbed into the body and such active hydrogen combines with active oxygen that causes various disease within the body and changes to water, which is eventually discharged outside the body.

Will it be safe for pregnant women to drink hydrogen water?

Drinking hydrogen water is beneficial to human body as it contains rich dissolved hydrogen. It is also safe for anyone to drink. Bodily purification and improved immunity are expected by drinking hydrogen water.

Is it okay to use hydrogen water for cooking?

Residual agricultural chemicals can be removed in a fast speed by soaking food materials into edible hydrogen water. By using hydrogen water for cooking brown rice, excellent penetration power of hydrogen shortens the cooking time from 6 hours to one hour. It is applicable for various cooking. Hydrogen water boils in a faster speed than ordinary water. However, it is recommended to drink right after generation to ingest hydrogen, because it vaporizes into the air as time elapses.
