The Power of H2 Antioxidants

Posted by Alkaline Water Plus on

H2 antioxidants help reverse diseases, where no other antioxidant can. Why?

The research on H2 hydrogen gas (called molecular hydrogen by scientists) shows it is a powerful antioxidant. Its unique ability to prevent or reverse diseases is exciting, important, and should not be overlooked! 

It's a historical fact that Japan used to be the worst rated country for health just after WWII and now are the healthiest nation on earth. Japan's medical protocols were made to be very strict after WWII, because their population had reduced to such dangerous levels. They took all research off of "profit" lines and would validate only what was proven beneficial to health. Hydrogen gas and ionized water were seriously studied and because they were proven beneficial they quickly made their way into Japan's healthcare system. I imagine now that the threat of annihilation is gone, Japan may sink back into a profit-based medical system, but the world is enriched by the knowledge their medical researchers acquired when their fight to survive was at its peak.

So, researched knowledge about H2 antioxidants grew out of Japan's need to recover from the war, but even though these results are clearly seen in Japan studies, the data is still in its infancy in the US. Japan was literally a dying nation and needed to focus on survival as a race for their top-priority, but we live pretty well in the US, and are not in any danger of extinction. In fact our average life-span is rising. The problem is that as our population grows older we have learned to expect to lose our quality of life. We expect our health care costs to rise and our mobility and ability to decline. But it doesn't have to be this way. I don't expect this for myself or my family. I pay almost nothing for healthcare today, when 25 years ago I regularly paid a lot to doctors for various remedies.    

Here's a video where research analyst, Nate Darnell, tells about himself (he sits on the board for Diabetes Support Services) and how he helped his diabetic community with what he learned about H2 antioxidants (from both Japanese and German trials). He delivers a compelling presentation on the phenomena of hydrogen gas (causing spontaneous remissions) in diseases, such as diabetes & cancer.

Information & Definitions:

  • Hydrogen Gas: Hydrogen gas is a paired Hydrogen molecule, H2, which has a negative charge on it. (H2-) It can be created directly, as a gas, and breathed in through a nebulizer. But, because a 4% or higher concentration of Hydrogen in the air creates an explosion, this method isn't practical for daily use. Also, who wants to walk around breathing through a nebulizer? 
  • Electrolyzed reduced water (ERW): This is the name the Japanese have given to electrolyzed or ionized water. 
  • Free-Radical: A free-radical is an atom or molecule that is missing an electron in its outer ring, and now has a positive charge. Free radicals are highly reactive with cell membranes and DNA, and, if gone unchecked, can cause damage which leads to serious diseases.
  • Antioxidant: A molecule that has extra electrons that can be donated to free-radicals and neutralize them. 
  • Hydrogen gas antioxidants are tiny enough to enter cells where they can donate their electrons to damaged cell membranes and DNA, helping to repair the body after free-radicals have damaged it. Hydrogen gas, molecular Hydrogen is also excellent as a preventative.
  • Oxidation: Oxidation occurs when the oxygen free-radical, O2+ or OH+,  steals electrons. 
  • Reduction: The electrical charge reduces from positively-charged to neutral or negatively-charged. Our bodies and cells are slightly negatively-charged in a healthy state.

Ionized Water Has Proven to be Powerful in Fighting the Effects of Diabetes

Researcher, Darnell, was looking for long-term solutions and control for diabetes. His conclusion after much research, was that electrolyzed reduced water (in the US known as ionized water) has the potential of playing a major role in helping diabetic patients, both type-I and type-II, and a vast number of other diseases. Water ionizers produce hydrogen gas, H2, a powerful, natural, and very unique antioxidant.

Ionized water is Hydrogen-rich, and is the most powerful antioxidant there is because of its tiny size. It has been found that hydrogen gas (specifically created from a water ionizer) improves the prognosis of diabetes patients, and a multitude of other diseases.  

Comparing H2 With Other Types of Antioxidants

Terminally-ill patients (many of whom were diabetics) went into remission, when they breathed in and drank the hydrogen rich water and air of the cave in Nordenau, Germany. This research was duplicated by the Japanese. 

The molecules are so tiny that they can enter every single cell in your body. Other antioxidants are larger molecules and usually stick around longer, but can't easily pass through membranes. So other antioxidants are restricted to the blood or bodily fluids, where they do their work. 

In other words, H2's power to enter cells, makes it able to prevent DNA damage and other damage to cells. Doing this can prevent horrible diseases. 

The one down-side to the tiny size of H2 is that it doesn't stick around all day, so you have to continue consuming it on a regular basis in order to continue to benefit from the antioxidants. Ionized water is the answer to how anyone can have access to the antioxidant benefits of hydrogen gas. Ionized water is: 1) rich in hydrogen gas, and 2) is something that is fairly easy to sip on all day long. 

Any other means of obtaining hydrogen gas would be more constrictive. For instance, for people to breathe  hydrogen gas, one has to sit still for a period of time.  

Hydrogen Gas Needs to be Consumed When You Produce It

Using a water ionizer, the production of hydrogen gas on demand, 24/7, and for only pennies on the gallon becomes possible. The hydrogen gas goes into solution of the electrolyzed water (meaning it becomes dissolved) and stays at maximum levels in solution for about 4 hours. Then it tapers off after that. Finally after 48 hours it has dissipated from the water, which is now just ordinary water once more. The point is that with electrolyzed ionized water one should drink it when it's fairly fresh, within about 4 hours. There are other methods of consuming hydrogen gas, such as breathing it in, however those also need to be consumed immediately (not stored).

Who Needs Ionized Water…and Why?

Who Needs Ionized Water?The older you are the more your body needs ionized water. The reason is that after many years of using up all of your body's buffers, your body becomes depleted quickly and diseases set in unless you do something to provide it with its balance again. By balance, I mean both pH-balance [...]

Understanding Antioxidants and Ionized Water

What Are Antioxidants? Antioxidants are substances that contain negatively charged ions. The reason we need these is that our bodies are constantly subject to oxidation. Oxidation is a normal process. We breathe, exercise, and eat, and so are continuously consuming O2 [oxygen] all day long. Oxidation occurs when oxygen, or positively charged O2 ions [free radicals], steal [...]

Which Ionizer Produces More Stable, Drinkable, Thoroughly Ionized Water?

Ionized water has to, obviously, go through the stomach after we drink it.  With hydrochloric acid, or gastric juices in the stomach, my question with this series of experiments was “Which Ionizer will produce more stable, drinkable, thoroughly ionized water?” You do not drink the highest levels of ionized water. The best pH levels for drinking [...]
