Simply put, hydrogen-enriched water is hydrogen gas dissolved into water with no pH change. Hydrogen is a selective antioxidant that has been shown to reduce oxidative stress. It is backed by 12 years of research, over 900 studies, and 300 articles.

While there are many health fads coming from Hollywood, hydrogen-infused water is not one of them. The Japanese have been drinking and even bathing in hydrogen water for years. There are over 30 health benefits related to drinking water and over 900 studies backing the positive effects of hydrogen.

One of the major health benefits of hydrogen is that it is a selective antioxidant, meaning it helps to relieve oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress is caused when there is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body. Free radicals can be defined as “oxygen-containing molecules with an uneven number of electrons.” Due to the uneven number of electrons, free radicals can easily bond with other molecules in your body. This bonding can cause chemical reactions within your body that can cause negative effects like inflammation, high blood pressure, and heart disease. (8)

Hydrogen infused water also helps to improve cognitive function. Studies have shown hydrogen-rich water helps to regulate and prevent mental illnesses, such as depression and anxiety. (9) Studies have also shown that hydrogen water helps regulate and prevent cognitive diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease, in mice. (10) Hydrogen also stimulates the release of the hormone, ghrelin, which boosts mental focus and clarity. (11)

One of the health benefits that Leigh-Allyn Baker has experienced since drinking hydrogen water is increased energy. Instead of reaching for your nearest caffeinated beverage when you are needing an energy boost, reach for some hydrogen water. Hydrogen helps signal your cells to create more ATP, or natural energy. (12)

So, is hydrogen water just another Hollywood fad? No! Between the added health benefits seen by many stars in Hollywood and the over 900 studies published on the positive effects of hydrogen infused water in the human body, it’s safe to conclude that hydrogen water and all its health advantages are here to stay.
