Hydrogen Water Benefits – The Complete Guide

Have you heard about hydrogen water? Hydrogen water benefits health in a lot of different ways. In this guide, you will learn about the amazing ways hydrogen water is changing lives. You will also learn why it is so powerful.

What is Molecular Hydrogen?

At its simplest, molecular hydrogen is a pair of hydrogen molecules. This pair is known as H2. The benefits of molecular hydrogen are anything but ordinary. H2 is a powerful antioxidant. Furthermore, research shows that molecular hydrogen has great potential in the area of:

  • Disease treatment
  • Overall wellness
  • A long life

There are three main reasons that molecular hydrogen is so beneficial:

  • It is able to enter the cell with ease, more than any other type of antioxidant. The ability to enter cells and mitochondria allows molecular hydrogen to deliver lots of benefits to the human body.
  • Molecular hydrogen prompts a response from several protective mechanisms within the body.
  • This antioxidant benefits cell signaling, metabolism and gene expression. By benefiting from these mechanisms, molecular hydrogen has the potential to decrease illnesses that cause inflammation as well as allergies. This benefit also has the potential to prevent and reduce the effects of obesity.

In the video below, listen to Tyler Lebaron, founder and executive director of Molecular Hydrogen Institute, discuss these benefits further.

What is Hydrogen Water?

You know that the formula for water is H2O. There is lots of molecular hydrogen in plain water. But the issue is that the H2 in regular water is bound to the oxygen molecule. Thus, molecular hydrogen is not free to do its job. This job involves fighting the basis of all illness, aging, and disease – oxidation stress and inflammation.

Hydrogen water is water enriched with molecular hydrogen that is not bonded to oxygen molecules.

Hydrogen Water Benefits

There are many studies on the healing benefits of hydrogen water. This guide provides insight into these benefits. First, let’s start with the most basic.

1.) Hydration

There are different methods you can use to consume molecular hydrogen. Each method has different benefits and we will expand on those benefits at the end of this article.

However, drinking hydrogen water is an amazing method to use if you want to stay hydrated. It seems that we are always being told to drink more water. But this is for good reason. Dehydration can lead to serious side effects. Along with this, there are many benefits of staying hydrated, including:

  • Improved cardiovascular health
  • Keeps you cool
  • Improved muscle and joint function
  • Helps the body remove wastes
  • Skin health

Drinking water can also help cut consumption of unhealthy things, like sugary sodas and artificially flavored juice drinks.

2.) Relief from Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that leads to pain and swelling, mainly in the joints. A common condition, roughly two million people suffer from rheumatoid arthritis in the United States. Approximately 200,000 new cases occur each year. Although the disease mainly affects women, men can suffer from this disease as well.

Hydrogen water benefits those suffering from this autoimmune disease. A 2012 study published in Medical Gas Research found that the use of hydrogen-rich water — as compared to plain water — greatly reduced the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in 20 patients who drank hydrogen-rich water for four weeks.

Why is this?

Molecular hydrogen (H2) is both powerful and selective. When consumed, the H2 in hydrogen-rich water is able to neutralize free radicals, including the hydroxyl free radical (OH). Although the exact cause for rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, the hydroxyl radical is one of the main culprits in the disease.

When H2 and OH meet, the result is harmless water (H2O). H2 donates one H for the reaction. Thus, hydrogen water neutralizes the hydroxyl free radical. Also, it eases oxidative stress and symptoms from a variety of issues are alleviated.

Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes

Before we talk about how hydrogen water benefits type 2 diabetes, let’s learn a little more about this disease.

Many elements of an American diet are not good when it comes to health and wellness. Fast foods and snacks contain processed ingredients, saturated fats, and sugars that hurt the body. A diet that includes a lot of these things can lead to overweight and obesity. According to the Centers for Disease and Control (CDC), nearly half (39.8%) of the American population is obese.

Obesity is a threat to health. Threats include increased mortality, increased risk of heart disease, cancers, and type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a condition where the body is unable to use insulin properly. Insulin is the key factor when it comes to turning sugar into energy. When you have type 2 diabetes, insulin is unable to do its job, leading to blood sugar levels that are too high.

Over time, high blood glucose levels can lead to problems with the kidneys, eyes, nerves, and heart.

3.) Improved Lipid and Glucose Metabolism for Type 2 Diabetes

People with type 2 diabetes need to follow a healthy diet plan and take insulin shots in order to ease symptoms. Along with a plan prescribed by your general health care practitioner, the use of hydrogen water eases symptoms associated with type 2 diabetes.

According to a study published in Nutrition Researchthe use of hydrogen-rich water can fight symptoms of type 2 diabetes by improving the metabolism of fats and sugars.

The study involved 30 participants with type 2 diabetes. One group drank hydrogen-rich water for eight weeks while the other drank plain water. After the trial period, researchers found that the group drinking hydrogen water saw a significant improvement in fat and sugar metabolism. These are two things that are important to the treatment of the disease.

Along with a good diet and exercise, drinking hydrogen water benefits those struggling with type 2 diabetes.

4.) Decreased Symptoms of Depression

Along with physical illness, hydrogen water benefits the mind. Depression is a very common mood disorder. We all have bad days or a case of the blues. However, depression is much more than that.

When someone suffers from depression, it can feel difficult — or even impossible — to function in everyday life. Even simple tasks like brushing your teeth or taking a shower can seem impossible. Symptoms of depression include:

  • Feeling sad all the time
  • Tiredness
  • A loss of interest in things you once liked
  • Changes in weight and appetite
  • An inability to sleep or sleeping too much
  • Stomach issues
  • Aches and pains

Hydrogen Water’s Ability to Improve Mood

Depression is often treated with a combination of talk therapy and antidepressants. Antidepressants increase neurogenesis, which is the growth of nervous tissue. In a study involving mice, researchers found that hydrogen water can lead to the development and growth of brain cells. This can improve things like memory. Moreover, it can help you think clearly.

Another study involving mice published in Scientific Reports found that the use of hydrogen-rich water greatly decreased depressive behavior and periods of stress. It did this by suppressing certain biomarkers that are common in states of oxidative stress.

5.) Muscles Aren’t as Tired After Drinking Hydrogen Water

Are you an athlete? If so, swap out your regular water for hydrogen-rich water. This type of water works wonders when it comes to decreasing the effects of things like exercise-induced muscle fatigue. A study published in Medical Gas Research found that young athletes who drank hydrogen-rich water before exercising weren’t as tired afterward. They also experienced less muscle pain.

Certain alkaline waters on the market claim similar benefits. However, most brands do not contain any hydrogen.

6.) Cancer Prevention

One study found that hydrogen-rich water can prevent the growth of cancer cells in the tongue. Another study found that hydrogen water stopped blood vessel growth in lung cancer cells.

7.) Improved Quality of Life in Cancer Patients

Along with cancer prevention, hydrogen-rich water greatly improves the quality of life of cancer patients.

Many cancers (depending on the type of cancer and stage) require radiation therapy. Radiation therapy is life-saving. It is a huge part of cancer treatment and recovery. But the side effects of radiation therapy definitely decrease the quality of life. Side effects can include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Tooth decay
  • Stiffness in muscles
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever
  • Skin problems
  • Sores in the mouth and more

A study involving patients with liver cancer found that hydrogen-rich water can improve the quality of life during radiation treatments. Hydrogen water does this by decreasing effects caused by oxidative stress without ruining the therapeutic benefits of radiation treatments.

8.) Hydrogen Water Decreases the Appearance of Wrinkles

Want radiant skin? Hydrogen-rich water can help you attain gorgeous skin naturally.

A study published in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology found that bathing in hydrogen water decreased the appearance of wrinkles.

This research also shows that the use of hydrogen-rich water decreases the effect of damage caused by UV rays.

9.) Wound Healing

A study involving elderly patients with bed sores found that drinking hydrogen water reduces wound size and increases recovery.

10.) Treatment of Eczema

Atopic dermatitis or eczema is an extremely common skin condition. Although it isn’t life-threatening, it is quite irritating, as symptoms include:

  • Dry and itchy skin
  • Skin redness
  • Scaly skin
  • Painful patches of skin
  • Raised, fluid-filled bumps

A study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that drinking hydrogen water decreases these symptoms.

11.) Hydrogen Water Improves Kidney Function

Research shows that drinking hydrogen water can protect the kidneys by reducing oxidative stress. One study found that hydrogen water can help people dealing with kidney disease.

12.) Hydrogen Water Prevents Hearing Loss

Keep things crystal clear with hydrogen water. Research shows that drinking hydrogen water protects your hearing and can prevent hearing loss.

13.) Improved Oral Health

In general, staying hydrated is important when it comes to oral health. This is one reason hydrogen water benefits teeth and gums. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), drinking plenty of water:

  • Strengthens teeth
  • Kills germs in the mouth
  • Fights dry mouth

Enjoy added benefits with hydrogen water.

Finally, the antibacterial effects of hydrogen prevent gum disease.
