A machine to add molecular hydrogen to water is a new health technology tool for all ages. Molecular hydrogen is two hydrogen atoms bonded together. The symbol for this molecule is H2. In hundreds of research studies, H2 has been found to have a therapeutic and preventative effect on a range of disorders. Link directly to machine specifications .
Mainstream media has informed the general population about the benefits of antioxidants for one’s health. According to Harvard Medical School, an “Antioxidant” is a general term for any compound that can counteract unstable molecules called free radicals (also called reactive oxygen species-ROS). Their chemical symbol is OH. Because free radicals lack a full complement of electrons, they steal electrons from other molecules and damage those molecules in the process. This includes damage to DNA, cell membranes, and other parts of cells. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by giving up some of their own electrons. In making this sacrifice, they act as a natural “off” switch for the free radicals. It is commonly accepted that if the oxidative stress is allowed to persist, it can cause many common diseases including cancer.
But a key factor that most people don’t realize is that extreme supplementation of antioxidants is not the guaranteed health solution they might expect. The point is that the body needs a balance of reduction and oxidation. It is not healthy to eliminate all free radicals.
So what is the solution? Molecular Hydrogen. It is a selective antioxidant. It will only scavenge the most cytotoxic free radicals. It will not scavenge so much that it causes an imbalance in the oxidation-reduction process. Reduction is the opposite process of oxidation. H2 is better than antioxidant supplements because it is a small molecule that diffuses rapidly through the body. It is hydrophobic which allows it to get through cell membranes easily, and its only byproduct is water. According to a research paper on antioxidant supplements and mortality, “The efficacy of hydrogen [H2] water seems to be greater than folic acid, vitamin E, iron, and alpha-lipoacid.” According to expert Tyler LeBaron, CEO & Founder of the Molecular Hydrogen Institute, there is no known toxicity to H2 based on hundreds of studies. In other words, it can’t be overdosed. It’s naturally produced, and has a long, effective track record of treating deep sea sickness. “That’s why I’m so passionate about hydrogen gas. I can’t really think of something that is more safe as a supplement that has more therapeutic potential than hydrogen gas and yet has such profound therapeutic potential.”
Molecular hydrogen has therapeutic potential in over 150 disease models and in essentially every organ of the body. The ability of H2 to reduce oxidative stress has a variety of benefits to the body. New publications are showing hydrogen is good for conditions like dementia and cognitive impairments. Human clinical studies show that hydrogen gas can prevent and reduce cognitive decline. Researchers from Loma Linda University reported that Hydrogen has marked therapeutic potential to help with the top 8 fatality-causing diseases listed by the CDC. For example, the gas has beneficial effects for atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. It’s even good for healthy people who want to live a better life. It improves exercise performance through improved recovery, endurance, exercise capacity, and energy. H2 also has anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, and potential anti-aging benefits.
The best way to get molecular hydrogen into the body for maximum efficacy is to drink water (or other liquids) infused with H2. New water machine technology makes it possible to hydrogenate an entire home’s water system. The Echo brand line of machines made by Synergy Science reliably produces this healthful water. It adds enough H2 to pure water to produce a -400mV to -500mV oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) with 1.5 parts per million of hydrogen gas. Other brands of machines and individual serving devices don’t deliver as much hydrogen.
Synergy Science offers 3 products to generate hydrogen-added water to a home or office system. The Echo H2 Server is for a home that already has a filtration or reverse osmosis water system. This filterless device generates the hydrogen and dissolves it in the water. It is mounted under the counter and has an internal pump to ensure a consistent stream of 1.3 liters of water per minute. The Echo H2 Machine creates two types of water: hydrogen-enriched water and filtered water. The Echo Ultimate delivers 4 types of water: hydrogen enriched, filtered, alkaline (for cleaning), and acidic (for cleaning). Compare the H2 machines .
