Oxidation and free radicals
We all know that oxygen is essential for our bodies to exist. What is less known is that oxygen has some adverse side effects. It forms free radicals, which result in oxidation. This is clearly visible in the brown color that an apple gets when it is cut in half and left for a while. The rusting of metal is another example of oxidation.
An unpleasant idea is that this process also continuously takes place in the body! In the long run, the effects of free radicals and oxidative damage are felt by, and visible for everyone. Free radicals are thus formed by natural physiological processes in the body. Other causes of free radicals are poor nutrition, excessive stress, smoking, alcohol, drugs, too much sunlight and air pollution.
How can we better protect ourselves against free radicals and the oxidative stress they cause? Molecular hydrogen could play a very important role in assisting in this process.
What is Hydrogen Water?
Hydrogen (H2) is a molecule that is abundant in nature. Because hydrogen is the smallest element in the universe, it quickly penetrates all tissues and cells of the body. Without disturbing the cell processes it binds free radicals which are then removed.
Note: Hydrogen Water is classified as a sports supplement. For this reason, we do not make therapeutic or medical claims. Visit the website of the Molecular Hydrogen Institute for more details.
How can Hydrogen Water benefit me?
Hundreds of studies confirm that Hydrogen Water is not only safe, but can also be very effective in treating all kinds of disorders, providing more energy, improving sports performance and promoting optimal health and longevity. The following positive effects have been observed:
Hydrogen Water and Anti-aging
Hydrogen Water is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect cells and genes from damage and death, caused by harmful free radicals. These properties, in combination with anti-inflammatory properties, can be life-prolonging because aging is caused by tissue breakdown, oxidative stress and inflammation.
Hydrogen Water and prevention of disease
There are currently 150 different diseases in which molecular hydrogen could have a beneficial effect. Some of the most common are: cardiovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, diabetes, allergies, osteoporosis, atherosclerosis, heart disease and cancer.
Hydrogen Water and C60 in olive oil
Little is yet known about the use of C60 in olive oil together with Hydrogen Water. This is currently being investigated by both scientists and users, and promises very good results.
Is Hydrogen Water safe?
Hydrogen Water is completely non-toxic and is naturally produced in the body when intestinal bacteria break down dietary fiber. No adverse effects are associated with Hydrogen and when it is degraded, the by-product is simply water (H2O).
Water enriched with hydrogen
Water can be enriched with hydrogen in several ways. One example is by means of an effervescent tablet. When it is dissolved in drinking water, a reaction occurs between the magnesium and the oxygen atoms in the water. This creates magnesium oxide and free hydrogen atoms, which are both healthy components. Another way is a device that adds hydrogen atoms to the water by means of electrolysis.
About the technology: SPE/PEM membrane
Both the H04 and the H05B Hydrogen Water makers have SPE/ PEM technology. The SPE/ PEM membrane is the latest development in the field of Hydrogen Water makers. This technology guarantees a high hydrogen content and the complete absence of harmful by-products in the water you drink. Both models are equipped with a platinum-coated titanium electrolysis plate, which guarantees a high production of hydrogen water for a long time.
Explanation of the schedule. The SPE/ PEM membrane consists of an anode and a cathode:
At the anode, H+ (hydrogen) ions are separated from oxygen atoms by electrolysis.
Only the desired H+ (hydrogen) ions move through the PEM membrane into the water you’re drinking. At the cathode, the H+ ions join with the electrons from the power supply. H-atoms are formed, which couple and form H2-gas. Harmful oxygen gas (and possibly chlorine gas) produced at the anode (by oxidation of hydroxide) stays behind and is discarded.
