10 New Year’s Resolutions With Hydrogen Water
The time for New Year’s resolutions is right around the corner! Here’s how the benefits of hydrogen water can help you to accomplish and maintain them.
IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR!
Time for midnight kisses, firework shows, and making News Year’s resolutions. We can help with one of those things. Keeping your New Year’s resolutions can be a challenging task that is often difficult to maintain. The benefits of hydrogen water can help you accomplish and maintain your New Year’s resolutions.
YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION AND THE BENEFITS OF HYDROGEN WATER
1. REACHING YOUR BODY GOALS
One of the most common New Year’s resolutions in history is losing weight, eating healthier, and making changes to reach your body goals. However, according to research, only 8% of people accomplish their goals (1). Here’s how hydrogen can help you achieve and maintain your goals!
Inflammation, insulin resistance, and an impaired metabolism are all factors behind weight gain. According to a study published on the National Library of Medicine, molecular hydrogen is able to combat inflammation, improve your metabolism, and reduce fatty acid, which helps you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight (2). Another study conducted on middle-aged, overweight women found that hydrogen could treat obesity-related disorders, improve cell function, reduce body fat percentage, and help stabilize insulin levels, which is often the cause of weight gain (3).
2. GETTING HEALTHY
Do you struggle with your gut health? Is your immune system low? Do you experience neurological challenges like bipolar disorder, depression, Parkinson’s, or Alzheimer’s? If improving your health is one of your New Year’s resolutions, hydrogen water can help!
Inflammation and oxidative stress is the major cause of disease. As a selective antioxidant, hydrogen water is able to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, which helps combat disease and illness on a cellular level. This means that hydrogen is able to help improve your gut function (4), boost your immune system (5), help your body combat against neurological challenges (6) (7) (8), and perhaps even help support against certain cancers (9)(10).
3. IMPROVING A RELATIONSHIP
Are you hoping to improve a relationship for your New Year’s resolution? Having the energy to play with your kids after a long day of work, going to go visit that friend you have not seen in a while, or simply having the energy to be able to be present in the moment with the people you love is an important factor in maintaining relationships. When you are tired, irritable, and running low on energy reserves, relationships suffer. Drinking hydrogen-rich water has been shown to increase ATP. This means that your energy levels are raised on a cellular level. So get rid of that coffee and achieve a much deeper level of energy with hydrogen water (11) (12).
4. DOING BETTER AT SCHOOL OR WORK
Is your goal for next year to do better in your schooling or in work? If so, hydrogen water can help you achieve this! Did you know that hydrogen water can increase cognitive function and decrease brain fog? As a selective antioxidant, hydrogen water has been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation by neutralizing harmful free radicals (13). By stimulating the release of the hormone, ghrelin, hydrogen water is able to boost mental clarity and focus (14). Hydrogen water is also able to regulate and prevent cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s (15) (16) and helps regulate mental illness, such as anxiety and depression (17).
5. BEAUTY RESOLUTIONS
Does your New Year’s resolution involve bettering your beauty routine? If so, here’s how hydrogen water can help:
- Staying youthful: Did you know that hydrogen water has anti-aging effects? Oxidative stress and inflammation cause faster aging and wrinkles. As a selective antioxidant, hydrogen water targets harmful free radicals and directly combats inflammation and oxidative stress, helping combat the effects of aging (18) (19).
- Combatting wrinkle formation: Hydrogen water is able to increase collagen production, reduce oxidative stress, support healthy cells, and promote wound healing, all of which help to reduce the formation of wrinkles (20).
- Improving your skin: As an anti-inflammatory and powerful selective antioxidant, hydrogen water is able to help combat skin issues such as acne and eczema (21) (22).
6. EXERCISE AND SPORTS RELATED NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
7. HAVING A CHILD
Did you know that hydrogen water has reproductive benefits? Every expecting mother knows the importance of a healthy, well-functioning placenta. As a selective antioxidant, hydrogen is able to help support placenta function (25). Endometriosis affects around 1 in 10 women (26). This can decrease reproductive potential. One study published in the journal of Reproductive Sciences found that hydrogen was able to have a therapeutic effect on endometriosis (27). Additionally, hydrogen water has been shown to help prevent ovarian failure and support healthy ovarian function (28).
8. COPING BETTER WITH STRESS AND LIVING A MORE STRESS-FREE LIFE
Life is full of different types of stress — all of which are harmful to our physical and mental wellbeing. Oxidative stress is the leading cause of disease and has been linked to a range of health conditions including heart disease, inflammatory conditions, diabetes, high blood pressure, neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, and cancer. This is because oxidative stress causes cell death and damages DNA. Hydrogen water is a highly effective selective antioxidant that combats oxidative stress and inflammation, helping to suppress anxiety and stress-related illnesses (29).
9. QUIT SMOKING
Are you determined to quit smoking for your New Year’s resolution? Hydrogen water can help you get back your health! Nicotine carries with it a series of health issues. Drinking hydrogen water has been shown to alleviate these effects. One study published by the National Library of Medicine found that hydrogen is able to treat nicotine-induced testicular oxidative stress (30). Another study discovered that hydrogen could be used as a therapeutic treatment to combat cigarette smoke-induced lung disease (31). Hydrogen was also found to treat smoke-induced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease by reducing inflammation and alleviating mucus hypersecretion (32). While you are working on starting the new year smoke free, hydrogen water is there to help you restore your body so that you can become the happiest, healthiest you.
10. RECOVER FROM DRUG ADDICTION
Hydrogen therapy can be used to treat central nervous system-related diseases. One symptom of morphine withdrawal is anxiety-like behaviors and naloxone-precipitated withdrawal symptoms. One study published by the National Library of Medicine found hydrogen to be a therapeutic method to ameliorate morphine-withdrawal symptoms (33). Spatial memory impairment, memory loss, hyperthermia, and neurotoxicity are symptoms of methamphetamine (METH) withdrawal. One study found that drinking hydrogen-rich water helped combat these methamphetamine withdrawal symptoms, which helped make the process smoother and less taxing on the body (34). Another study done on hydrogen and methamphetamine withdrawal found that hydrogen was able to help combat behavioral sensitization and cognitive-related withdrawal symptoms (35).
TAKE THE NEW YEAR BY THE HORNS
Whether it’s reaching your health and fitness goals, or building new life habits, hydrogen water is there to help you achieve and maintain your New Year’s resolutions. Take this new year as an opportunity to make progress towards becoming your happiest, healthiest self.
