100 Scientific Studies of Hydrogen Water

Ionized Water, Hydrogen Water & Hydrogen Gas

The body (and its many parts) and diseases of all kinds have been found to have been helped or healed naturally from the use of  ionized water, hydrogen water and hydrogen gas. Hydrogen water from a water ionizer or a hydrogen machine is very therapeutic, as these studies show. My personal preference is the water ionizer. Here's my testimonial.

The research on this page shows the positive effects that hydrogen water, hydrogen by itself (as a gas) and ionized water have on the body. There are fewer human studies than animal studies, so I have placed the human studies first within each category, followed by the animal studies.

The terrific therapeutic benefits of water ionizers (ionized water), hydrogen water machines (hydrogen water) and hydrogen gas machines (hydrogen gas) have been demonstrated thousands of times in scientific studies. One hundred of these studies are described (and linked to the actual research) on this page.

About the Articles

These articles are a compilation of a variety of hand-picked, relevant articles, which are a good sample of the scientific literature about hydrogen water, water ionizers, and hydrogen gas to date. Each study listed is accompanied by a link to the published abstract of the article. The link will open up a new page in your browser. Note: Ionized water is typically called "electrically reduced water" or ERW in the studies. Hydrogen, in hydrogen gas and hydrogen water, is often called "molecular hydrogen". Ionized water is not the same as hydrogen water, but can be called hydrogen water because it has a lot of molecular hydrogen in it. Ionized water is produced in a water ionizer and hydrogen water is produced with either a hydrogen water machine or hydrogen gas generator.
