Frequently Asked Questions
We get it - Hydrogen Infused Water might be new to you and you have some questions. But don’t worry, we’ve got all the answers and then some. If you have a question not seen here, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Is Hydrogen Water Safe?
So safe that it’s safe enough for pregnant/nursing moms and babies. But, just to be sure, it was tested at concentrations over a hundred times higher than what you’d be drinking, and found to be perfectly safe. You cannot drink too much hydrogen (although you can drink too much water), and it does not build up in your system (anything that you don’t use you will just exhale out). It’s also been used to locate gunshot wounds in the intestines for centuries and for decompression sickness for decades, so we have years of safe use behind us.
Is a Hydrogen Water Machine the same as an Ionizer?
It’s similar, but not the same. A conventional water ionizer is the father of hydrogen water-producing technologies. It’s older technology with more design limitations. Water ionizers have a proven track record of providing health benefits, but science has discovered these were a result of molecular hydrogen being produced, as it’s a function of water electrolysis (the process of decomposing water into its natural elements oxygen (O2) and hydrogen (H2) via an electrical current). It wasn’t from the high pH or alkalinity of the water (a by-product of water electrolysis), as originally thought. In true science form, this remarkable product was developed almost by accident. So we’ve simply improved the technology and maximized the hydrogen levels, exponentially increasing the benefits.
What’s the difference between Hydrogen and Molecular Hydrogen?
Simple Chemistry. Hydrogen is the lightest, simplest element with the symbol H. It consists of one electron and one proton. Atomic hydrogen is the first element on the periodic table, consisting of only one electron. Because this electron isn’t paired it’s considered a free radical. Its symbol is H• Diatomic hydrogen (aka dihydrogen) is simply two hydrogen atoms bonded together as H-H. It’s as simple as 1+1=2 … just written like this … H•+ H• = H2 Molecular hydrogen is another name for diatomic hydrogen. Because two atoms have bonded together they have formed a molecule. This is the most common form of hydrogen. It is neutrally charged (no free radicals lying about) and is an odorless, tasteless gas. It’s this form of hydrogen that has shown therapeutic effects on over 150 human diseases! When we refer to hydrogen we are talking about molecular hydrogen. Molecular hydrogen is diffused into water and carried to all those sub-cellular compartments (like the mitochondria) to rid your body of disease.
Is High-Alkaline Water Beneficial?
Our bodies are balanced at a pH of 7.4 – 7.5 (slightly alkaline) and they fight hard to keep themselves in this state of homeostasis. In spite of this known fact, there are popular misconceptions about health, that state that our bodies can become acidic and in response, people have been drinking high alkaline water to compensate for the acidity. However, this approach is not necessary and can even be harmful in the long run. That said, water ionizers have been demonstrated to give health benefits over the years so it’s not a hoax….but further testing and studies have shown this is from the hydrogen gas dissolved in the water, not the alkalinity of high pH.
