A quote from Albert Szent Gyorgy, a nobel prize winning biochemist, a specialist in this field, he found that oxygen’s counterpart, hydrogen, is the real fuel for our body, counteracting oxidation, It can heal disease states as well as keep the cells young.  The word hydrogen comes from Greek, ‘hudor’ meaning water and ‘gennan’ meaning generate, hydrogen is to generate water!  But, you haven’t heard about this? so how is this even true?  Here it is;

Firstly, it is important to understand that not every water is created equal and it does not have the same effect in our body.

We all have heard that our bodies are made up of 60-80% water, so, we probably can assume that it could be a priority to get our type of fluid intake right.  If you have ever really thought about water, or researched it, you will realize that there are many variations to it.

These variations depend on the chemicals within it, or lack of and what the water has come into contact with to change it even further.  For example, mineral water, is mineralised, it has either been added, or naturally from rocks and natural ground sources.  On the other hand, rain water, is not mineralised, it is distilled, which means it has no minerals. Sea water has a lot of sea salt, but lake water has no salt.  These are some obvious differences.

Tap water is also very different, depending on what is used to sanitize it, where it comes from, what pipes it travels through, where it is held, for how long, and what minerals and chemicals are added.

These differences will matter to your body, when that water enters your body, it reacts with your cells, if you are drinking low quality water, you will either not even absorb it well and stay dehydrated, but could even be creating more havoc inside your body.

What is good quality drinking water?

1.It has lots of Hydrogen

2. It has a negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential)

3. It is Alkaline (Ph 8.5-9 Max)

4. It contains beneficial Minerals

5. It is clean, free of detrimental Toxins

In this post, I will be focusing on Hydrogen.

A bit of information on Hydrogen

Szent-Györgyi was the first to show that the human body stores hydrogen in many of its organs.  The liver stores the most hydrogen to be able to use it to detoxify.  It appears that hydrogen is what the body is asking for when it is becoming dehydrated, and symptoms of disease and aging could be the cause of dehydration.  Which can be seen as we get older, when our cells, literally get dried up, inside and out, we slowly dehydrate.

Food is a great source of hydrogen, and in some sources of food it is more available then in others, however, food must be broken down to use the hydrogen.  The air also contains tiny amounts of hydrogen and readily absorbed, this can be increased by using an air ionizer or salt lamps, producing negative ions, which contain hydrogen.  However, the best way to increase hydrogen intake is through water, but not any water.

How does hydrogen water work?

Mainly with the mineral magnesium. Magnesium reacts with water and that produces hydrogen gas, this has been demonstrated by using hydrogen detectors.

This is the chemical formula: Mg + 2H20 = Mg(OH)2 + H2 (hydrogen concentration)

But, it is definitely not crucial to learn chemistry to understand this.

Here is some of the research

  • Effects of drinking hydrogen-rich water on the quality of life of patients treated with radiotherapy for liver tumors HERE
  • Effectiveness of Hydrogen Rich Water on Antioxidant Status of Subjects with Potential Metabolic Syndrome—An Open Label Pilot Study HERE
  • Molecular Hydrogen Improves Obesity and Diabetes by Inducing Hepatic FGF21 and Stimulating Energy Metabolism in db/db Mice HERE
  • Biological activation of hydrogen HERE
  • Hydrogen in Drinking Water Reduces Dopaminergic Neuronal Loss in the 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine Mouse Model of Parkinson’s Disease HERE
  • Consumption of hydrogen water prevents atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E knockout mice HERE

These hydrogen rich waters have been discovered in Mexico, Germany, India, France, Japan and China.  Check out the Miracle Healing Water.

However, we don’t have to pack our bags and leave the country.  We can make it.  Check out Hydrogen Water Australia.
