5 easy ways to consume your daily dose of Hydrogen

Hydrogen works like a magic wand – from having the ability to reduce diabetes to Alzheimer’s.  A number of studies in Japan show that hydrogen has the ability to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. Hydrogen consumption in various forms is necessary to 

  • keep the cells hydrated, 

  • have nutrients properly transported to the cells that need them,

  • lubricate the joints and improve the immune system. 

It acts as a therapeutic antioxidant by selectively reducing cytotoxic oxygen radicals.

1. More H2 in H2O

Just as carbon dioxide dissolved in water makes carbonated water, hydrogen water machine has plain water with extra hydrogen gas dissolved into it, without affecting its pH level. It protects cells from oxidative stress, decreases inflammation, boosts energy levels and slows ageing. Molecular hydrogen fights free radicals in the body and protects cells from oxidative stress. Research proves that athletic performance is also improved significantly via this.


In an 8 weeks study, 49 people with liver cancer receiving radiation therapy were instructed to drink 51-68 ounces of hydrogen-enriched water per day. At the end of the trial, those who consumed hydrogen water were found to have decreased level of hydrogen peroxide- a maker of oxidative stress and maintained greater antioxidant activities after radiation treatment than the control group.

A metabolic syndrome characterized by high blood sugar, increased triglyceride levels, high cholesterol can also be improved by hydrogen water according to a study. In a 10 week study, 20 people with signs of metabolic syndrome drank 30-34 ounces of hydrogen-enriched water per day and were found to have significant reductions in cholesterol and LDL. There were improved levels of antioxidant activity.

Despite being expensive, with the increased demand for hydrogen, many hydrogen water machines are sold online to make it at home and to have it readily available.

2. Hydrogen in a Tablet

Hydrogen tablets like Coral Calcium’s cell energy H2 supplements taken with pure water or carbonated water support the production of the body’s own in-house antioxidants such as Glutathione and SOD, with no negative side effects. One molecular hydrogen tablet should be added into a 16 oz bottle of water. Wait for 15 minutes for the tablet to dissolve and it's ready to drink. It relieves fatigue, enhances cell hydration and helps in removing toxins from the body. It is an economically viable source of hydrogen and easy to use. 

3. Consuming Fruits, Vegetables, Cereals

Starch is a stored form of sugar in plants. It is composed of hydrocarbons (hydrogen and carbon dioxide). Thus consuming corn, potatoes, beans, rice and grains which has high levels of starch are helpful in intake of hydrogen. Also, fruit sugar and milk sugar have adequate levels of sugar-containing high levels of hydrogen molecules. Apple juice, lemon, grapefruit, tomato and other citric fruits having low PH, meaning more H+ ions help in the intake of more hydrogen in the body.

4. Inhale Hydrogen

Yes, literally! There are hydrogen inhaling machines available which diffuses in the air. Intake of hydrogen via these machines is the easiest and the most efficient way of consuming hydrogen. Many cardiac arrest patients, people with lung problems are advised to breathe hydrogen through these machines and it has been proven beneficial in their treatment. Although expensive, inhaling hydrogen (such as via California hydrogen water) is advised by a number of medical practitioners.

5. Injecting Hydrogen

Injection of H+ saline helps in infusing hydrogen directly into the bloodstream. Thus increased levels of hydrogen in the blood improves metabolism, improves the efficiency of the cells and removes toxins faster. Dropping H2 rich saline into the eyes is another way of fastening the intake process.

Daily consumption of hydrogen-rich water, air and other methods of intake have several biological and physical advantages. A medical hypothesis also suggests that oral intake of hydrogen-rich water generated via magnesium stick would reduce adverse events in patients receiving radiotherapy, without altering the blood cell count or the blood composition.
