- Water is the ultimate life source.
- But is there a type of water that can give you a boost of added benefits?
- Let’s see what happens when you add hydrogen to a multitasking, life giving compound.
Water in known to be one of the key life-supporting elements, as well as the healthiest beverage you can imbibe since it is necessary for basic survival and nearly every function in the body. As long as it is filtered correctly, water can basically work magic. Some common issues people increase their water intake for include helping to smooth out digestion, support healthy blood pressure and organ functions, enhance mental clarity and focus, as well as to help regulate temperature (especially in the summer months).
Water is definitely the most vital source for life we consume, but you are going to be amazed by the added benefits that hydrogenated water provides. A product that was launched on the market officially around 2016, hydrogenated water has additional hydrogen gas dissolved into it and boasts an array of possible health benefits. It is made by bubbling pure hydrogen gas into water, which decomposes the water molecule into two forms: oxygen gas and hydrogen gas. It does not affect the taste or smell of the water itself.
There are so many types of water on the market. Vitamin-infused, sparkling, seltzer, flavored, boosted, and more. So, what is it about this type of water that makes it so special?
Hydrogenated water is a powerful anti-inflammatory
Findings from several recent studies suggest that hydrogenated water can boost your body’s antioxidant capacity. The presence of more antioxidants in your system helps create a healthier overall body.
What does this mean for you? You can look forward to support in your ability to clear skin irritations more easily. The antioxidants can not only help boost your skin’s clarity and glow, but can help improve the health of your hair. By helping to reduce the detrimental effects of free radicals on the body, these antioxidants rid the body of oxidative stressors that are linked to hair graying and loss. While nothing is proven to consistently reverse existing hair loss, antioxidants like those found in hydrogenated water is being looked at as support to help slow down the aging process.
Hydrogenated water can boost your energy
Hydrogenated water can help your systems function more efficiently and smoothly. Energy levels are shown to improve with regulated bodily function and ability. It has also been shown that it may help to increase athletic performance and recovery speed after exercise in preliminary research (more research is needed to determine just how much impact it can have on athletic performance). A 24-week study suggests that adding hydrogen water to your routine may mildly increase weight loss capability.
Hydrogen-rich water could improve nerve function
Though it hasn’t been extensively studied, recent research indicates that nerve function benefits with regular hydrogen water intake. Directly linked to the reduction of chronic oxidative stress by the antioxidants it provides, this compound is said to increase central nervous system functioning.
One of the major neural pathways activated by stress is the autonomic nervous system. When the body is overrun with stressors, it can go into overdrive. Without equal activity in the parasympathetic nervous system to balance it out, the immune system becomes overrun with cytokines, which cause inflammation. This type of inflammation is linked to anxiety, depression, and other stress-associated neurological disease.
Hydrogenated water may help lower cholesterol
An early study shows that water infused with additional hydrogen may actually help to lower the body’s cholesterol levels in people with certain metabolic disorders. The research is preliminary, but we look forward to learning more about how hydrogenated water may support cholesterol health as more data becomes available.
How can you try hydrogenated water?
There are now several products on the market that come prepackaged or as tablets or powders you can add to water, depending on your personal preferences and needs. Our favorite is Quicksilver Scientific's H2 Elite. Easily drop a tablet into a glass of water and you are set!
