The hidden health benefits of H2 water

Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is important for overall good health because water is involved in and helps improve many bodily functions. These functions include digestion, absorption, circulation, and excretion.

But like most things, not all water is created equal. If you are increasing your water intake but are still drinking tap water, you are also increasing your intake of toxins that regular city filtration systems cannot remove such as: heavy metals, hormones, fluoride, drug residues and microplastics just to name a few.

Most bottled water has been shown to be just as contaminated as tap water (because in reality it probably is just that) with the added disadvantage of being a terrible strain on our landfill and the environment.

A good H2 water filtration and purification system not only removes most of the contaminants found in both tap and bottled water with the addition of massive benefits that can be gained from transforming filtered water into alkaline antioxidant water, which is now increasingly referred to as hydrogen-rich water.

The benefits of drinking hydrogen rich water are also numerous and you may have already heard about its anti-inflammatory anti-oxidant properties. But you may not have heard about these other benefits of drinking hydrogen rich water that researchers continue to examine with amazing results.

Suppress cancer growth

After applying hydrogen-rich solutions to cancer cells in the laboratory, scientists concluded that they could shrink and suppress the growth of such cells. Many animal studies have concurred, and since some researchers subjected the laboratory animals to no cancer treatment other than the alkaline water it seems as if the inhibitory effect of hydrogen solutions on cancer cells can be incredibly strong. While you should not abandon your cancer treatment in favour of drinking H2 water, it can certainly be a powerful addition to your existing cancer treatment.

Build your strength

Hydrogen supports strong bones and muscles. This will come as no surprise to knowledgeable alkaline water drinkers – it’s one of the most frequently investigated benefits. Alkaline, antioxidant water helps your body maintain the pH of your blood without it having to loot minerals like calcium and magnesium, which are stored in the cells of bones and muscles. As a result, it prevents bone loss and osteopenia which is a condition in which the protein and mineral content of bone tissue is reduced, but less severely than in osteoporosis.

Balance your metabolism

Hydrogen-rich water improves fat and glucose metabolism, even in people with type 2 diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance. If you have enjoyed a typical Western diet of refined bleached grains and hydrogenated oils until recently, you are probably not as sensitive to glucose as you should be. In a study on rats, academics found that hydrogen has an effect on fatty liver, cholesterol and obesity.

A Japanese study involved 36 patients with either type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance (a prediabetic condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal). Some patients drank about 30 ounces of hydrogen-rich water daily for eight weeks the rest drank the same amount of plain water. Results: Hydrogen-rich water consumption was associated with significant decreases in LDL “bad” cholesterol and urinary markers of oxidative stress as well as improved glucose metabolism in two-thirds of prediabetes patients, oral glucose tolerance test results returned to normal. Among plain water drinkers, there were no significant changes.

Be heart smart

Many animal studies have proven that hydrogen-rich substances greatly improve the prospects of sufferers of heart failure and heart attacks. Scientists have also proven that hydrogen-rich substances (primarily hydrogen saline) can prevent cardiovascular damage caused by oxidative stress and/or inflammation even after serious cardiac events.

Protect your brain

Drinking hydrogen-rich water can protect against the neurological damage of brain injury, both the type that occurs during surgery and stroke and that which occurs over time due to oxidative stress.

If you or your children play contact sport or you take care of a relative who has suffered a stroke, or are horrified at the idea of dementia, it is well worth considering.

Optimize your workouts

Hydrating with hydrogen before you exercise may help ease muscle fatigue from intense workouts, so you can keep pushing. Drinking hydrogen infused water has been shown to reduce lactic acid buildup and shortcut athletic strain so you can recover from your workouts more easily.

Although the benefits of hydrogen rich water have been studied since 2007, it’s still a relatively new field and many benefits are still emerging. The good news is that H2 water has no negative side effects and you cannot overdose or get too much of a good thing.
