By now we all know that drinking hydrogen rich, or H2 water is one of the best things that we can do for our health but what about the health of the rest of the family?
It’s especially important to drink plenty of clean filtered water when you’re pregnant –you’re not only eating for two you’re drinking for two! Growing a little human is hard work and it’s important to drink plenty of fluids to keep your body’s cooling system running smoothly and to disperse excess heat in the form of sweat.
Drinking plenty of water will also help prevent dehydration that often results in exhaustion. Did you know that drinking H2 water is 3X as hydrating as regular water? That means you stay hydrated three times longer so fewer trips to the ladies room!
Drinking H2 water helps your body get rid of excess sodium among other things, minimizing swelling —particularly swollen feet or ankles or what your doctor might call edema.
Are there any dangers to drinking H2 water while pregnant? There are no known side effects to H2 water and it’s not possible to overdose on it.
H2 water is wonderful for nursing mothers as well. A nursing mother produces about 25 ounces of milk daily and needs to replace this fluid and then some. If the mother’s normal intake is 8 cups per day, it should be increased to 12 cups a day. H2 water is the best choice for nursing moms to replenish their fluids, boost their energy and generally support them in the important job of nourishing their baby.
Children and Adolescents
Children play hard and can get dehydrated quickly if they don’t replenish their fluids, especially on hot days. They also have higher water requirements in relation to their body weight than adults but they may not recognize the signs of thirst until they get a headache or feel nauseous and dizzy. It’s tempting to reach for that juice box or sugary drink but instead give them an energy boost without the empty calories.
Obesity is a growing epidemic in North America. Sugary drinks are the single largest contributor to daily caloric intake. People are drinking more sugar than ever – double over the last 30 years – and these drinks are relentlessly marketed to children and teens. They are often disguised as “healthy” drinks such as juice drinks, sports drinks, flavored and enhanced waters, sweetened teas and energy drinks.
H2 water provides tremendous health benefits without any calories. It’s a great way to get children started on healthy habits that will form a foundation for a lifetime.
And speaking of benefits, the antioxidants and their preventative qualities will help children fight that cold or bug that’s going around and keep them healthy year round.
And hydrogen rich water is great for teens that are experiencing hormonal fluctuations, which can result in mood swings, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and even skin eruptions. H2 water can help boost their emotional and mental stamina.
As we age the body begins to break down on a cellular level and we are more prone to disease. H2 water has a beneficial effect on cell signaling, cell metabolism, and gene expression, which gives it anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-aging effects.
H2 has potential to help with the top eight out of ten disease-causing fatalities as listed by the Centers of Disease Control including Alzheimer’s Disease, Cardiovascular Disease, Cerebrovascular Disease and even Influenza and pneumonia.
Hydrogen is very natural to our bodies, as we are exposed to it on a daily basis as a result of normal bacterial metabolism. You can’t overdose on it and there have been no reported negative side effects.
Please note, however, that hydrogen rich water might increase the absorbability of drugs and nutrients. Although generally a good thing, this can be a two edged sword, because, although it’s great for getting more nutrition out of your nutritional supplements, you might also get more medicine out of your medicines. Unfortunately, medicines can be overdosed, so be alert to see if you may need to reduce the dosage of any of your medications.
