Hydrogen Water & Ionized Water Research

Hydrogen Water & Ionized Water

There are hundreds and thousands of articles and testimonials, which show the healing benefits of ionized water and hydrogen water. The main ingredient in hydrogen water is free-hydrogen (molecular hydrogen). Free-hydrogen is a unique molecule of two hydrogen atoms, bonded together, but not to any other elements. When in a free state, hydrogen is healing to the body, as it attacks free-radicals & neutralizes them. In this way, the body can be healed naturally with free-hydrogen antioxidants. You can only get free-hydrogen in hydrogen-water, ionized water or hydrogen gas. Regular water contains no free-hydrogen antioxidants. Out of containment, free-hydrogen will evaporate fairly quickly, so it's best to drink it fresh and if you store it, store it properly.

Hydrogen water is known to both protect and heal the kidneys, heart, liver, stomach, intestines, skin, brain, lungs, eyes and pretty much every part of the body. [See the over 100 peer-reviewed articles, categorized by organ, below.] 

The best way to consume free-hydrogen is in water.

It has been demonstrated that drinking hydrogen-water is more beneficial to the body than inhaling hydrogen-gas, probably because as a gas it evaporates more quickly. The benefits of hydrogen water or ionized water (either one) will go on giving (fighting free-radicals) for days. Whereas these benefits are seen to last only hours with hydrogen gas inhaling. (However the studies about this show that both methods are effective and therapeutic.)

The most widely used and possibly the most therapeutic form of free-hydrogen is in ionized water. Ionized water is a form of hydrogen water that is produced by a water ionizer, which splits the water in two streams, alkaline and acidic. The alkaline water is packed with free hydrogen and so is therapeutic for that reason as well as the fact of being an alkaline pH. Read more about the benefits of ionized water. Hydrogen water, which is not split like this, is gaining in popularity, especially since the advent of a new SPE/PEM membrane (developed by DuPont), which safely produces hydrogen in water for a fairly reasonable price.

What is the Difference Between Hydrogen Water and Regular Water?

Regular water should not be confused with hydrogen water. It has hydrogen in it of course, H2O, but the hydrogen in regular water is not free and cannot fight free-radicals. 

The links to hydrogen studies on this page show a wide variety of positive effects that hydrogen water, ionized water and free-hydrogen by itself (as a gas) have on the body. As you can see by all the studies on this page, hydrogen water has been thoroughly studied for its effects on diseases. 

The terrific therapeutic benefits of water ionizers (ionized water), hydrogen water machines (hydrogen water) and hydrogen gas machines (hydrogen gas) have been demonstrated in hydrogen research studies, like these, thousands of times. These studies are a fraction of what has been done to prove the healing benefits of hydrogen water. More hydrogen water and ionized water research is being conducted every day. See for yourself the enormous and growing proof that alkaline ionized water and hydrogen water can significantly help the body by reading some of the articles linked.

I have personally experienced the benefits of hydrogen water thousands of times over. See my testimonial.

MOLECULAR HYDROGEN'S ABILITY TO SCAVENGE FREE RADICALS ANYWHERE IN THE BODY

Molecular Hydrogen is known by many prominent researchers world-wide for its ability to truly penetrate through cell membranes (even the blood-brain barrier) and scavenge free radicals. This is why every time I drink ionized water or hydrogen water I almost instantly feel increased brain clarity. There is truly nothing else like this.

One reason Hydrogen is not like any other antioxidant is due to its tiny size. Hydrogen is also lipid soluble, which is important, because lipid solubility is necessary for entering into cells through the cell membranes. So, Hydrogen (unlike any other antioxidant) can get into every living part of the body. All other antioxidants are incapable of this feat. Another thing that makes it different from all other free-radical scavengers is that it simply evaporates or turns into water when it's "used up", so it creates no danger of becoming a free-radical itself as other antioxidants do.

HYDROGEN AT THE ROOT OF LIFE

School children know that the combination of H2 and Oxygen makes water, which is at the source of all life. Oxygen also brings life, but unfortunately complications arise when there is too much oxidation within the body and there is not enough balance of hydrogen. This condition is called Oxidative Stress, and is thought to be at the root of almost all disease. Oxygen can actually become a dangerous free radical within the body when it has lost its electron balance. When it's in this state it's called Active Oxygen. While Active Oxygen is capable of causing a terrific amount of damage to cells, tiny little molecular hydrogen can calm it down completely; neutralize it; turn it into harmless water and make it useful for the body. This is done with no harmful waste or byproducts produced. At the same time molecular hydrogen doesn't attack good radicals in the body. It will never act as a poison to the body, and any excess of it will simply evaporate harmlessly and combine with oxygen in the air to hydrate or moisturize it. 

Other types of antioxidants have been found to become free-radicals, themselves, once they have donated their electron to neutralize another molecule. This doesn't happen with molecular hydrogen. As a matter of fact molecular hydrogen is able to refresh the antioxidant abilities of various other antioxidants to keep them from becoming free-radicals. After much testing and scrutinizing by research scientists worldwide, no negative effects whatsoever have been found to be caused by molecular hydrogen.

How Do You Get Hydrogen Water?

Out of the two ways to get hydrogen water: ionized water (water ionizer) and hydrogen water (hydrogen water machine), my personal preference is the water ionizer, because a water ionizer also produces a high ph water. My body needs more alkalinity to help keep it detoxified. But, because I sometimes need neutral pH water for balance, I will drink about half of my daily water from a hydrogen water machine.

Over 100 Articles Showing the Benefits of Ionized Water & Hydrogen Water Demonstrated in Research Studies & Clinical Trials

The next sections contain over 100 links to scientific articles showing that ionized water and hydrogen water has benefits to virtually every body-part and disease.

Note About Terminology: The research articles usually refer to ionized water as electrically reduced water, electrochemically reduced water, electrolyzed reduced water, reduced water or ERW. Hydrogen, in hydrogen gas and hydrogen water, is often called free-hydrogen, molecular hydrogen, hydrogen gas, h2, diatomic hydrogen, hydrogen rich water, or just 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. Hydrogen water is produced in either a water ionizer, hydrogen water machine or hydrogen gas generator

HYDROGEN RESEARCH ON HEART

The studies listed in this section show that free hydrogen has helped to drop blood pressure, dissolve cholesterol, reduce hypertension, reduce left ventricular hypertrophy, improve cardiac function and reduced mortality rate after a cardiac arrest, and remedied other serious heart dysfunctions.

IONIZED WATER: CHOLESTEROL AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

Back around the turn of the century, Prof. Kuninaka Hironage, a leading heart surgeon (and head of Kuninaka Hospital in Japan) used ionized water with all heart patients in his hospital. He found ionized water to be instrumental in helping his thousands of patients overcome their blood pressure issues and control the health of their heart and blood vessels, naturally, without medications. Here are some of his quotes:

    • "The effectiveness of the increase in the calcium in high blood pressure is most significant. Too many fats in the diets, which lead to the deposition of cholesterol on the blood vessels, which in turn constrict the blood flow, cause most illnesses such as high blood pressure."
    • "By drinking ionized water for a period of 2 to 3 months, the blood pressure should slowly drop, because the ionized water is a good solvent, which dissolves the cholesterol in the blood vessels."

FIGHTING FREE-RADICALS AND HEART DISEASE

Dr. Shigeo Ohta (of Japan) specifically devoted many years of research on the free radical benefits of ionized water and hydrogen water. Free-hydrogen (molecular hydrogen) was shown to effectively neutralize free-radicals, without any of the negative side-effects often seen with other antioxidants. This is important. Fighting free-radicals while battling (or preventing) cancer, heart disease or 170 other diseases is a huge benefit that alkaline ionized water and hydrogen water both offer. In this video Dr. Ohta, is being interviewed by the CEO of the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation. They talk about the latest research into Molecular Hydrogen and the benefits of hydrogen water and hydrogen gas. 

Here is another video where Tyler LeBaron of the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation explains this research in more detail, using charts and peer reviewed reports to clarify his statements.

Not only does free-hydrogen (molecular hydrogen) help to fight heart disease, but the videos show that hundreds of other diseases are also helped with hydrogen.

Alkaline ionized water has been proven to help alkalize the body, which is essential in cancer prevention. It helps us to maintain the proper pH balance within cells and organs and so is protective of our cells and a preventative measure against cancer.

Hydrogen water research has also shown many cancer prevention and healing benefits for patients being treated with cancer as well.

This short, 2-minute video, summarizes what researchers have worked years to learn about keeping a healthy, disease-free colon, as well as other organs and cells.  Colorectal cancer is one of the most dangerous, common and horrible-to-live-with cancers.

The following video presentation is by Mr. Darnell of the "Diabetes Support Services" organization. In this video you can get a history of water ionizer research and how using ionized water has helped his group members. The history of water ionizers all started by people noticing there were pockets of "healing waters" around the world, and then scientists tested those waters and developed equipment (water ionizers) to simulate the healing waters. Mr. Darnell learned about these waters and this equipment, water ionizers, in a roundabout way, and then after fully studying the subject and equipment, he made recommendations to his group to use ionized water with the group's diabetic members. He reports that ionized water has been very effective in helping the hundreds of diabetic patients in his organization live better lives, free of many of the complications associated with diabetes. This next section (after the video) is all about the interesting history of these machines.

50 YEARS OF RESEARCH SHOWING THE HEALING POWER OF IONIZED WATER

The Japanese use of water ionizers in their research is an interesting story. Statistically, the Japanese have the longest life spans and lowest infant mortality rate in the world, but this was far from the case historically, especially the first ten years after WW-II. How did they rise from such levels of devastation, malnutrition, poverty, sickness and terrible health-care to hold this esteemed position of health-leaders of the world? Find out how a young scientist and diabetes researcher delved into the history of Japanese healthcare system, as he sheds light on the "mysterious healing waters" around the world and explains how the study and duplication of these healing waters helped Japan to recover from being the world's worst nation to the world's best (for health) in only 2 decades. His particular interest is in how these healing waters have helped his diabetic patients, but he also explains how the same principles apply to any disease, or to just keeping the body healthy and disease-free. After watching the video, learn more by reading this article: Ionized Water, Molecular Hydrogen & the History of Japanese Healthcare

DEFINITIONS:

    • Electrolyzed reduced water (ERW): This is the name the Japanese have given to electrolyzed water. In the U.S. we call it alkaline ionized water and some people call it Kangen Water. Let me be very clear that Kangen Water is a registered trademark of one brand of water ionizer, and the water made is not necessarily better or worse than what is made by other water ionizers. After testing many water ionizers over the years (in thousands of tests) I have summarized the differences among the main brands of water ionizers on my water ionizer comparison page. Electrolyzed, ionized, hydrogen-rich water contains a significant amount of extra electrons, which of course have a negative charge. Infusing a solution with electrons, makes it a powerful antioxidant (explained below).
    • 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. The most common and deadly free radical is the oxygen radical, O2+, also called active oxygen. The plus sign symbolizes its positive charge, due to the missing electron. Oxygen free radicals are also often in the form of OH+ as well (called this the hydroxyl radical). 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 can bond with free-radicals and neutralize them by donating electrons to complete their outer rings. Hydrogen gas antioxidants are tiny and soluble 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. Or, as a prevention, antioxidants can donate their electrons to free-radicals to neutralize them before any oxidative damage has been done. 
    • Oxidation: Oxidation occurs when the oxygen free-radical, O2+ or OH+,  steals electrons. Oxidation involves a loss of electrons and a gain of positive charge. It is called oxidation when active oxygen comes in contact with other molecules, cell membranes, and damages them by stealing electrons.
    • Reduction: It goes counter to our logic that the gain of electrons (which is what "reducing" means in scientific terms) by a molecule or cell, would be called reduction. However what reduces is the oxidation state of a molecule or cell. The electrical charge reduces from positively-charged to neutral. Our bodies and cells are slightly negatively-charged in a healthy state.
    • Electrolysis of Water: Putting a current of electricity through water, splitting it into alkaline & acidic streams, and as a consequence adding negatively-charged hydrogen ions to the alkaline water, is called electrolysis. In the U.S this water is called ionized water. (See Benefits of Ionized Water.)

CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTS STARTED IN JAPAN

In the early days the only researchers of ionized water were the Japanese. Their novel discoveries quickly spread to So. Korea and then China. These are the only researchers that I know of who frequently recorded their research in video-format and laymen's terms. Why did they do this? They HAD to in order to convince their Japanese populace to obtain better health care and to spread the word of "successful research" quickly to their ordinary citizens. After all the Japanese population was almost non-existent after WW-II with no hope in sight until they broke through the profit & pomposity barriers that existed before the BIG CHANGES the Japanese Government made in their medical laws (above video explains this).

Because they FOUND GREAT SUCCESS in ionized water's research and health benefits, the Japanese quickly became leaders in the research of electrolysis and the therapeutic uses of alkaline ionized water.

The ionized water used in their many experiments utilized two kinds of ionized water: electrolyzed water and filtered ionized water (magnesium in the presence of magnetized ceramics which causes the water to spontaneously ionize). 

MICE EXPERIMENTS:

These experiments with mice show the positive effects found by water ionizer research in Japan and Korea. The video shows impressive results using ionized water with diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and obesity in mice and rats. The tests, shown in this video, were done in laboratory-controlled conditions and show without a doubt that alkaline ionized water has made significant improvements in multiple health-related conditions, i.e. diabetes, cholesterol, cancer, and more.

BENEFITS OF MOLECULAR HYDROGEN (12-MINUTE VIDEO)

Therapeutic free-hydrogen is such a new subject, is so unique, and has such wide implications in treating and preventing disease, it deserves spending some time studying it to catch up on this important science. Consuming hydrogen water and ionized water has no side effects; is completely safe in any amount; and thousands of articles have been written so far showing its therapeutic value in both preventing and eradicating diseases. For actual scientific literature about hydrogen water, ionized water and hydrogen gas, again - see our Scientific Studies page.

Definitions, Background & Basics: For anyone who gets lost in the scientific terminology, I have some key points bulleted for you:

  • Defining Molecular Hydrogen: First, when we talk about molecular hydrogen, it's just two hydrogens bonded, H2 gas. In this form, it's stable, but it's very light, so will evaporate quickly. Molecular hydrogen is the smallest molecule in the universe. It's just hydrogen gas, a gas, but it's very energy-dense and super healthy. Molecular hydrogen is known to be therapeutic, whether you inhale it, or dissolve it in water and drink it, but drinking it has shown more sustained benefits, that last longer than inhaling.
  • How Molecular Hydrogen Helps to Heal & Prevent Diseases:
    • Molecular hydrogen lowers oxidative stress. Oxidative stress and inflammation are two of the worst mechanisms for destroying human health. 
    • Molecular hydrogen alleviates inflammation, which is the underlying cause to many diseases. 
    • The thousands of publications on molecular hydrogen all suggest that hydrogen has a therapeutic potential in over 170 different human and animal diseases.
    • Molecular hydrogen is shown to be effective in helping virtually every organ, whether it is diseased or not. 
    • When you look at the free-radicals, not all are bad. Some free radicals, such as nitric oxide, are "good" and are needed by the body. Molecular hydrogen doesn't neutralize these "good" free-radicals, only the bad ones. Hydrogen is proven to be "selective" in this way.
    • Most other antioxidants, are not selective, which can be problematic. With other types of antioxidants (in some of their clinical trials) the patients took high levels of antioxidants. In these trials they had to stop the study, because of negative results. Those other antioxidants were killing off the "good" free-radicals. This is not the case with hydrogen, because of the fact that it's selective.
    • Molecular hydrogen helps to bring the body into balance, only, and this has been demonstrated in studies. 
    • There is no chance of "over-dosing" on molecular hydrogen. If your body doesn't need it, the excess simply evaporates.
    • Some animal research shows that molecular hydrogen actually has the potential to prevent oxidative stress related injuries or diseases from occurring. For instance, when administering molecular hydrogen to a test animal prior to introduction of the toxin or injury, the test animal didn't get affected like the other control groups.
    • Recently, in medical applications, using molecular hydrogen therapy concurrent to oxygen therapy has been seen to counteract and diminish the harmful effects that are often expected with oxygen therapy.
    • It appears that molecular hydrogen protects the mitochondria and that is one theory as to why it positively affects so many organs and diseases. Mitochondria are where cell-mutation is known to initiate, and the cause is theorized as oxidation. Molecular hydrogen combats that and therefore a preventative measure we should all take as well as a therapeutic measure for fighting just about any disease.
    • Molecular hydrogen has no known disadvantages to health or warnings. Where it is not needed, it does nothing. Where it is needed it is seen to have a powerful and significant beneficial influence.
    • One of the reasons why molecular hydrogen is so therapeutically beneficial, is because it permeates every membrane in your body. There is not a space that it cannot get into, whether it's your cell membrane, the blood-brain barrier, the mitochondrial membrane, it goes there. Just nothing stops it.
    • Most compounds have hydrogen in them, but molecular hydrogen is just two hydrogen atoms that are bound together. In this form it is free to fight free-radicals. Free-hydrogen is not free in any other form. Also, it is not going to be available close to the earth's surface unless you produce it, such as with a water ionizer or hydrogen machine, because it is too light and will evaporate.
    • One reason why hydrogen is so good is because it's a weak antioxidant. It's able to go in and fairly quickly help to create a balanced environment in the body. When it's not needed, it simply evaporates and does nothing.
  • Who Can Consume Molecular Hydrogen? Anybody can have it: a pregnant mother, a child, a baby, the elderly, everybody. It is known to positively affect the unborn child. Prof. Watanabe Ifao, in Japan, worked with tens of thousands of pre-eclampsia patients and found that the condition was ameliorated with ionized water. Also, the newborn children of these mothers were healthier and brighter than similar patients who did not drink ionized water during pregnancy. Hydrogen gas itself is very safe and protective of the body and its cells and organs. Hydrogen has been used it in deep sea diving to prevent decompression sickness since the 1940s. It is seen to have no toxic effects and has been demonstrated to be very safe.
  • How Can You Consume Molecular Hydrogen? There are many ways to administer molecular hydrogen: drinking ionized water is the primary one, but also inhalation of hydrogen gas and drinking of hydrogen water made by a hydrogen gas machine or hydrogen water machine are gaining in popularity. Bathing in hydrogen water is a another way to achieve therapeutic benefits. But, the easiest and most practical way to consume molecular hydrogen is to just simply drink it.
  • Storing Hydrogen Water: You shouldn't store hydrogen water in plastic or open containers, unless you plan to drink it right away, because hydrogen is the smallest molecule. It will dissipate right out of the container. You should store it just like you would store ionized water, in a vacuum-sealed stainless bottle, especially made to have a nipple-top, which pushes out the air-bubble when you close it.
