We all have stress. It may be caused by an assignment at work, family responsibilities, or everyday situations like being stuck in traffic. Short-term stress is a natural part of life, but too much stress can wreak havoc on our health. Studies have found that after just one stressful event, our body can take days to recover.

While short-term stress, or “good stress,” is relatively harmless, long-term stress can lead to a wide range of health consequences. Long-term oxidative stress damages the body’s cells, proteins, and DNA, affecting the entire body on a cellular level.

If you experience one of the following health concerns, you may be feeling the effects of long-term oxidative stress:

  • Accelerated aging (1) (2) (3)
  • Acne (4)
  • Allergies (5)
  • Asthma (6)
  • Behavioral and mood disorders (anxiety, autism, depression) (7)
  • Cancer (8)
  • Chronic fatigue (9)
  • Chronic inflammation and inflammatory conditions (8)(9)
  • Diabetes (10) (11)
  • Heart disease (8) (12)
  • High blood pressure (8)
  • Male infertility (9)
  • Neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s) (8)

The answer to reducing long-term oxidative stress seems pretty straightforward: reduce your stress levels. But there is actually more to it than that. Researchers have found that after a stressful event, our body’s antioxidant levels (the way our body combats oxidative stress) plummet. Researchers have also found that it can take as long as three days to recover from that single stressful event (13).

Let’s talk about some common ways people increase their antioxidants and decrease their stress levels:

  • Yoga and Meditation: Many people use different yoga or meditation techniques to reduce their stress levels and find inner peace. While this is a great way to reduce stress, and while some studies have shown yoga to increase antioxidant levels when practiced daily over a period of several months, the number of antioxidants this exercise induces are insufficient to meet your daily minimum antioxidant needs.
  • Exercise: Many people find a lot of stress relief from getting out and getting active. However, after a hard workout, lactic acid can build at the site of inflammation in the muscles. Studies recommend supplements like vitamin C and other antioxidants to combat this side effect. However, these supplements are often not enough to fully dissipate the lactic acid buildup.
  • Foods High in Antioxidants: Eating foods high in antioxidants is a frequently recommended way to increase antioxidant levels and combat oxidative stress. However, the daily recommended amount of antioxidants is 8,000 to 11,000 antioxidant units a day. This can be hard to achieve with food alone.

It makes sense then that even though you may be eating fruits and vegetables, and using other methods to combat stress, you may still be feeling the negative health effects associated with chronic stress.

Whether it is debt, relationship tension, or work deadlines, we all experience some form of stress now and then. While short-term stress, or “good stress,” is not something to be concerned about, long-term stress can wreak havoc on your body.

Long-term oxidative stress can contribute to the development of a wide range of health consequences, such as heart disease, inflammatory diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

What Is Oxidative Stress?

As long as you are breathing, oxidation is taking place on a cellular level (14). While oxidation is both a normal and necessary bodily process, harmful oxidative stress happens when there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants (15).




What Are Antioxidants?

Antioxidants are our greatest defense against oxidants. Antioxidants help prevent cell damage by donating an electron to harmful free radicals and oxidants — neutralizing them (16)(17). By helping combat free radicals, antioxidants are able to help prevent the development of a number of diseases, including heart disease and diabetes.

We can get antioxidants from a wide range of food sources. These include: fruits, vegetables, whole foods, green tea, turmeric, blueberries, beta carotene, and vitamin E.

How Many Antioxidants Should You Be Getting?

The daily minimum amount of 8,000 to 11,000 Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) units is necessary to just barely keep our bodies out of oxidative debt (18). However, reaching this minimum recommended amount isn’t as easy as you might think.

Let’s say you have two eggs on toast for breakfast along with a banana. Then, for lunch you have a typical salad with cucumber and tomatoes. You have some watermelon for dessert. You even have an apple as a mid-afternoon snack. Then, your dinner includes peas, carrots, and another salad. You then have some strawberries for desert. Even though you just ate around 10 servings of fruits and vegetables, this only adds up to around 2,900 antioxidant units, which is well under the daily minimum amount (19).

This measurement also does not take into consideration whether or not you are:

  • Stressed
  • Exposed to air pollution
  • Sleep deprived
  • Eating foods that contain processed sugars, refined carbohydrates, or unhealthy oils

All of these can greatly increase your levels of harmful oxidants.

The Most Powerful Antioxidant

Did you know that the most powerful antioxidant isn’t a fruit or a vegetable? It’s hydrogen! As the first element on the periodic table, hydrogen is, to our knowledge, the universe’s simplest element. It is also nature’s most abundant element. Because of its size, hydrogen is easily able to bind with other elements like oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon. This allows it to have an exceptionally wide range of uses. One of these uses being that it is a highly effective therapeutic antioxidant that has been known to help combat various inflammatory and oxidative stress related diseases.

How to Access the Benefits of Hydrogen

Echo Antioxidant Water™ is water that has added hydrogen gas running through it. Now, you may be asking yourself, “doesn’t water already have hydrogen in it?” And you would be correct. Simply put, Echo Antioxidant Water™ is water that is infused with hydrogen gas through electrolysis. This means that the water contains the gaseous form of hydrogen. In other words, Echo Antioxidant Water™ is water with bubbles of hydrogen moving through it. Additionally, this water has gone through the process of electrolysis, giving the water a -400mV to -500mV Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP). Drinking water with this ORP supports healthy gut function and stimulates the growth of good gut bacteria.

Hydrogen is a highly unstable element which is, perhaps, its greatest advantage (20). Because it is so unstable, it has an exceptionally wide range of uses (21). This is because it is easily able to bond with other elements and molecules, and it is easily able to move through our cells. Additionally, because Echo Antioxidant Water™ has gone through the process of electrolysis, it is able to help support healthy gut function. By helping support gut function, hydrogen-infused water is able to help facilitate weight loss, increase energy, and strengthen your immune system.

What’s Your Gut Telling You?

80% of your immune system is housed in your gut (22). However, because of factors such as stress, poor diet, and illness, the average person’s immune system is weakened to around 20% functionality. This may lead to a wide range of health issues. The electric potential in Echo Antioxidant Water™ is able to repair and restore your gut, helping to strengthen the immune system (23). Hydrogen-infused water has also been scientifically proven to improve allergies and food intolerances (24) (25) (26) (27).

How It’s Made

We harvest the hydrogen gas by separating the H2 from the O in a process known as electrolysis. While different machines may have a slightly different process, here are the basics of how it works:

  1. In each of our Echo Antioxidant Water™ Machines, there are electrodes with different polarities.
  2. The electrodes send electrical pulses into the water.
  3. The differing polarity of the electrodes attracts different elements of the water, such as calcium and salt.
  4. The differing polarity also breaks the bonds between the H2 and O.
  5. The free-flowing hydrogen gas then gets added back into another stream of water.
  6. The final stream of water that gets output now has the free-flowing hydrogen gas added to it, along with a new oxidation-reduction potential

“As a wellness educator and coach for nearly 2 decades, I have never endorsed a single water technology until I found the Echo water machine from Synergy Science. Echo exceeds my expectations and solves the biggest and most important gap in wellness of my career - excellent hydration. I have totally loved my Echo water machine for nearly 3 years. Recently I added and love the new Echo Undersink Hydrogen Machine...It’s nice that there is a separate Echo Hydrogen Water Server for those who use reverse osmosis, too. Thank you, Synergy Science for another great innovation — you’re the best!”

Kathy J.

“I purchased my Echo 9 system as a somewhat weary skeptic in Sept of 2016. Hydrogen Enriched Water...Really? How much better could it be? But, because I believe in staying as natural as possible is a much better way to live and knew I wasn’t happy with my current water. I decided to give it a try. While I can’t tell you what has happened to me will be the same for you...I can give you a bit of my personal story. First: The taste is incredible, it takes like water should taste and you will find yourself craving it. It’s clean, smooth and incredibly refreshing! Second: And even more important to me, the water supported my body in reducing my migraines which I have endured since I was young. I am happy to say that since I started drinking from this System, I don’t get as much as I used to. This Echo System has genuinely been a win-win for my wellness.”

“As a Clinical Nutritionist my primary job is to educate my clients on nutrients and food, but hydration is critical and largely missed. We can live without food for some time but not water...and the better we are hydrated then the more optimal everything functions...I have been using different ionizers for years, but was extremely excited when introduced to Synergy Science and Echo Water. The filtration is impeccable so I can trust my family, myself and my clients are not adding to our toxic load from the water we are drinking. I also spent a lot of time researching the benefits of hydrogen as a means to reduce free radicals in the body...Synergy Science not only makes superior health and products, but has integrity and core values in line with my own, which are helping people feel their best and maximizing our incredible inherent healing capabilities.”

There are over 1000 research studies supporting the benefits of molecular hydrogen! Here are a just a few:

Video Studies

What is Hydrogen Water?

This video covers what hydrogen-infused water is and how it can benefit your health. As the first molecule on the periodic table, hydrogen is the smallest molecule. As an effective antioxidant, hydrogen is known to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, which are major causes behind many diseases. The benefits of hydrogen include improved gut function, increased ghrelin production, improved brain function, increased cellular energy, and increased muscle recovery after exercise, among others.

Why Are Athletes Interested In Hydrogen Water?

In this video, Dr. Jessica Herzog looks at how hydrogen-infused water can be beneficial for athletes. Studies have shown that hydrogen-rich water is able to help decrease lactic acid buildup in the muscles. By aiding in glycolysis and decreasing lactic acid buildup, hydrogen-infused water can help boost muscle recovery, decrease muscle soreness, and help athletes work out harder for longer.

Rheumatoid Arthritis and Hydrogen Water

This video covers the effect that hydrogen-enriched water has on rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that happens when oxidative stress attacks and breaks down the joints. As an effective selective antioxidant, hydrogen is able to decrease harmful oxidative stress and inflammation by donating an electron to the free radicals, neutralizing them. By decreasing oxidative stress and inflammation, hydrogen-enriched water is able to help combat rheumatoid arthritis.


Nature Medicine


Publish Date: 7 May 2007

Oxidative stress and inflammation cause damage to DNA, cells, and tissues. Long-term oxidative stress is one of the causes of many common diseases. This study published by Nature Medicine found hydrogen (H2) to be an effective antioxidant. As an effective antioxidant, this study explored how hydrogen was able to have preventive and therapeutic applications. By neutralizing harmful free radicals and reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, hydrogen can be used to help increase brain function and decrease oxidative stress related brain injury. Owing to molecular hydrogen’s ability to rapidly diffuse across membranes, hydrogen is able to function as an effective antioxidant therapy that protects the body against oxidative damage.

BioMed Central (BMC)


Publish Date: 16 May 2013

This study published by BioMed Central (BMC) highlights molecular hydrogen’s ability to act at the cellular level. Because hydrogen is so small, it is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and enter into the mitochondria, where cellular energy is created. This study looks at hydrogen’s antioxidant, antiapoptotic, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective properties that can benefit the body on a cellular level. Because of these benefits, hydrogen shows therapeutic potential to help against cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, cancer, metabolic, and respiratory diseases and disorders.

Scientific Reports


Publish Date: 7 January 2016

This study looks at how hydrogen gas is able to regulate gene expression. Hydrogen is able to regulate gene expression by neutralizing free radicals, which correspondingly impacts the formation of oxidized phospholipid mediators. As a novel antioxidant, molecular hydrogen is able to protect the cells from harmful oxidative stress. Because of its benefits, hydrogen carries potential applications in therapeutic and preventive medicine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Molecular hydrogen, which is supported by nearly 1,000 scientific studies, has always been the focus of Echo Water™ Machines. The Echo Module™ sets our machines apart from the other water machines on the market. Our patented module is designed so that the electrodes are not in contact with the water that you drink. In other words, the metal of the electrodes is not in the water. Hydrogen gas is separated from a stream of water and dissolved into a second stream of water. The primary purpose of Echo Antioxidant Water™ Machines is to make hydrogen-enriched water, not to create alkaline water with hydrogen-enriched water as a bonus.

Our machines create hydrogen-enriched water without changing the pH of the source water. The cathode in our Echo Module™ is not in contact with the water you drink. Because of the way the module is designed, it can never accumulate mineral buildup on the electrodes. This means that our machines will continue to be able to dissolve hydrogen gas and produce quality Antioxidant Water™, unlike other water machines that require cleaning and maintenance every two weeks.

Electrolysis was first discovered by Dr. Anthony Carlisle when he was trying to produce hydrogen gas in the year 1800. Electrolysis happens when water is shocked with electricity.
When this happens, a small amount of hydrogen and oxygen is converted to gas.

Typically, electrolysis separates water into alkaline or acidic water. Echo Water™ Machines have a proprietary technology that uses electrolysis to harvest hydrogen gas (H2) without changing the pH of the water to be alkaline or acidic. Then, hydrogen gas (H2) is dissolved into a second stream of water, so the Echo Antioxidant Water™ you drink never touches the electrodes.

The difference between these two types of water is the pH level. Alkaline water has a pH higher than 7, while acidic water has a pH lower than 7.

Despite much of the hype about alkaline and acidic water, the real health benefits come from molecular hydrogen gas. The most common process for making hydrogen-enriched water is dissolving hydrogen into alkaline water during electrolysis. We also used this process until we created our proprietary Echo Module™, which generates hydrogen-enriched water without pH change.

There are many household benefits from alkaline and acidic water. The pH change in alkaline water is good for deep cleaning. Acidic water works well as a disinfectant and is frequently used to clean produce.

Acidic water can be used on your face, hair, and teeth, and to rinse your mouth to kill bacteria. It’s a wonderful sterilizer. You can use it for skin issues such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, cuts, and burns, and it works for pink eye. It kills E. coli, Salmonella, MRSA, and staph infections, as long as there are 10 parts per million of hypochlorous acid (HOCI). This is the active ingredient in the water that enables it to kill bacteria or things of that nature. Hypochlorous acid is in the chlorine family and has four times the kill spectrum than that of regular bleach. It is non-toxic, and you can drink it without harming yourself, but most benefits do not come from consumption. You can also use it on plants, and they will thrive. You can also wash vegetables, meat, and fish, nearly doubling their freshness.

Hydrogen is a gas, so it can escape even when frozen. Hydrogen can get through steel, metal, glass, and plastic, so it can get through frozen water. We don’t know how much hydrogen would stay in if you made ice cubes from Echo Antioxidant Water™.

Echo Antioxidant Water™ adds hydrogen gas (or molecular hydrogen) into your water. Hydrogen has been proven in multiple scientific studies to be a very powerful antioxidant. However, adding the additional hydrogen gas does not change the make up or pH of the water.

The water molecule has two hydrogen atoms, chemically bound to the oxygen atom. This is different from the hydrogen gas molecule (H2), which is just two hydrogen atoms bound only to each other.

For example, we need oxygen (O2) to live, but we can’t get our oxygen from drinking water. That’s because the oxygen is chemically tied up in the water molecule. We need available oxygen gas (O2), a gas that is not bonded to other atoms or molecules. We also need the available hydrogen gas (H2).

This is why water is not explosive or doesn’t burn. Although it contains hydrogen (which is flammable) and oxygen (which fire needs to burn), the hydrogen and oxygen are bonded together to form water (H2O). In Echo Antioxidant Water™, the hydrogen that is shown to be therapeutic is the available dissolved hydrogen in its diatomic form, called molecular hydrogen.

While hydrogen gas does immediately start coming out of the water, it doesn’t vanish immediately. Depending on the surface area, agitation, temperature, etc., the hydrogen gas can stay in the water for a few hours or longer before it dissipates. This is much like carbonated water or soda that contains carbon dioxide gas (CO2). Because it does leave, it is best to drink the water before it goes “flat.”

In an open cup or glass, hydrogen will last three to five hours. At most, hydrogen will last in water up to 10 days if the container is filled to the top — with no air or space at the top — and the container is tightly sealed. After the container is opened and you take a drink, the hydrogen will last another three to five hours.

The earliest account of hydrogen gas having medicinal properties was in 1888, when it was found to aid in wound healing. But, it didn’t become a popular topic among scientists until 2007, when an article about the benefits of hydrogen was published in the prestigious journal of Nature Medicine by Dr. Ohta’s group.
