Comparing Types of Hydrogen Water Machines

Posted by Alkaline Water Plus on

What is Hydrogen Water?

The very best, healthiest water you can drink is hydrogen water. Hydrogen water is water which has extra H2 gas dissolved into it. It tastes just like regular water, but is much healthier because of the antioxidant benefits of the added hydrogen.  Regular water doesn't have antioxidant benefits, and therefore does nothing to fight free-radicals. But hydrogen water, with its antioxidant benefits fights free-radicals better than any other antioxidant. It literally transforms regular water into healing water!

Hundreds of research studies show that a wide range of diseases caused by free radical damage can be reversed or eradicated with the consumption of molecular hydrogen antioxidants. Pumping molecular hydrogen into the water works to transform ordinary water into Hydrogen Water

It's useless to try to buy ready-made hydrogen water, because the beneficial hydrogen antioxidants are so small they evaporate out of the water fairly quickly (within a few hours or a day). So the way to get the benefits of hydrogen water is to make it yourself (preferrably fresh) throughout the day.

How Can You Make Your Own Hydrogen Water?

To produce hydrogen water one needs a hydrogen water machine or water ionizer. Hydrogen gets pumped into the water when you ionize it with a water ionizer, filter it with ionizing minerals, or pump hydrogen directly into it with a hydrogen water machine. 

Getting the Best Hydrogen Levels: Molecular hydrogen is measured in ppm (parts per million). If you can get anywhere between .5 ppm and 1ppm, you're doing great. [Note: This is the level most commonly used in medical trials] I am personally happy getting anything over 1 ppm of molecular hydrogen in my ionized water. 

One thing to point out, though, is that results depend upon the type of tester you use as much as the particular machine being tested. Here are some typical results I have gotten from a variety of machines:

Comparing Types of Hydrogen Machines: Video Demos

Here are some demo videos showing you the comparisons of different types of hydrogen machines: hydrogen gas machine, hydrogen water machines, water ionizer, etc.

Results (listed from high to low saturation of molecular hydrogen antioxidants): Nexus Smart 7P water ionizer (1.5 ppm), the SPE-270 hydrogen gas machines (1.5 ppm), the Lourdes hydrogen water machines (1.2 ppm), the High-Rich Machine (1.2 ppm), H2 Tablets (.7 ppm), the Alkaline Ionizer Purifier Energizer (.3 ppm) and the Alkaline Plus PH Ionizing Pitcher (about .1 ppm).  

Beware LifeIonizers -- Fake Claims

The best results possible for molecular hydrogen concentration in hydrogen water is 1.6 ppm. I suppose if you went into a hyperbaric chamber, or pressurized your container somehow, you could get better than that. But at sea-level (normal atmospheric pressure) you can't squeeze any more than 1.6 ppm of hydrogen gas concentration into any solution or container whatsoever.

There is a new video I saw recently from LifeIonizers, which claims to produce 5 ppm of molecular hydrogen concentration. If you know how to do hydrogen concentration testing and you look closely at their video, you can see they fill up their vial with five times the amount of water that they should. Doing the math on this, one can extrapolate that the MXL-15 water ionizer is really getting 5x less than the results they are claiming...or about 1 ppm. 1 ppm is not bad, but at the price they are charging for their machine, you can do much better, as you can see in the chart, above.

Here's a picture of the LifeIonizers fake test:

Which is Better? Breathing Hydrogen Gas or Drinking Hydrogen Water

Studies show that when you drink hydrogen water the health benefits can last days longer than breathing the gas directly. Still in all, both methods of consuming hydrogen antioxidants are valid and scientifically proven to benefit health. Read more about the health benefits of molecular hydrogen.

Father of Understanding Cancer Eighty some-odd years ago Dr. Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for the disease-fighting research he did, showing that cancer is caused by the lack of oxygen and the fermentation of sugars. He found that cancer cells could not survive in an alkaline environment. This was so ground-breaking and such thorough research as to win him [...]

Why Test Both ORP and Molecular Hydrogen?

I have discovered in the past few years that the antioxidants in ionized water come from both H2 (molecular hydrogen) and OH-. H2 antioxidants are measured with a Hydrogen Meter and an ORP meter measures both OH- antioxidants and molecular hydrogen (combined). The difference didn't seem too significant to me at first, but researchers have focused [...]

Molecular Hydrogen and Cellular Aging (Senescence)

Cellular Aging Senescence (səˈnəsəns) is a scientific term that basically means “aging”; it refers to a process of cells losing their ability to divide and renew. A lot of research is happening right now on the topic of senescence. As cells age, they often eventually stop working (turn themselves "off"). This is a natural part of the cycle of life, [...]
