With all the recent awareness and hype surrounding hydrogen water and its health benefits, one might be confused as to how to come across this product and how it's supposed to be used.
Hydrogen water, in simple terms, is basically molecular hydrogen dissolved in water. Despite being such a simple product, it has powerful antioxidant capabilities, thus explaining several of its healing properties, including anti-aging benefits, increased exercising capability, treatment against diabetes, improved cognitive function, and general bodily wellness. Consuming hydrogen water poses no threats to the body as it simply helps in balancing oxidation levels.
What are Hydrogen Water generators?
Hydrogen water generators are products found in a water bottle form-factor that use electrolysis to generate hydrogen-rich water. Consumers must be brand conscious when selecting these products as some of them might not perform as well as claimed or might be manufactured using cheaper materials that do not last long.
Some hydrogen water generators have milky-white deposits that settle at the bottom of the cup. This happens due to undissolved hydrogen gas. Over time, the hydrogen builds up and gets deposited in the device. This can be avoided if the device comes pre-installed with calibration that removes these white deposits.
Make sure that the water being used has a neutral pH of 7 to 7.5 as it is important to keep bodily functions in check. A concentration of 1000 ppb or more is recommended with about 2-3 liters of water being consumed per day, which equates to about 2-3 mg/L of hydrogen. It is recommended that the hydrogen water be kept frozen for a longer period of retention if you want it to stay dissolved for longer than an hour. In a full aluminum bottle, hydrogen can remain dissolved for up to 60 hours. Agitating the generated water will cause the hydrogen to escape faster.
Hydrogen water must not be your only source of antioxidants. Other antioxidant foods and vitamins must also be consumed, as they contribute to vital bodily functions as well.
