Questions and answers about Hydrogen®

Because hydrogen is a very powerful antioxidant that helps to neutralise free radicals and reduce oxidative stress, which is a cause of most of illnesses and premature ageing. As well as hydrogen, which is the smallest element in the universe, it penetrates parts of the body where other antioxidants cannot reach, such as the neurons and the cell nuclei. 

The recommended daily water intake is between one and three litres. We recommend that you drink only hydrogen water, although anything more than one glass a day will be highly beneficial for regulating your oxidation level.

Yes. The only effect of hydrogen-rich water is to help to maintain a suitable oxidation level for good health. It has no contraindications.

Yes. However, you must change their water at least once daily, because after six hours it starts losing the charge. In Japan they sell special packaged hydrogen water for pets. 

No, because the hydrogen evaporates while boiling and it turns back into normal water.

If you heat the water without boiling it, it will keep its hydrogen and electric charge. If you drink enough hydrogen water, then you may like to think about whether it is worthwhile making tea and infusions with this water.

Yes. It eliminates free radicals from the skin. Hydrogen water can be applied with a cloth or directly to the skin and left to work for a few minutes.

No. However long you hydrogenate the water, it is impossible to overload it with hydrogen. Once it becomes saturated, any excess just evaporates. What’s more, however much hydrogen saturated water you drink, you’ll never reach the recommended maximum.

No. The problem occurs when there is a lack of negative charge. When there is too much, the electrons are discharged through the skin. The problem is that we discharge too much, causing oxidation.

Every time we breathe in, 2% of the oxygen that enters our bodies turns into bad oxygen (free radicals) that oxidises us. This bad oxygen can be converted into good oxygen if we give it an antioxidant electric charge. If it does not get this charge from antioxidants, it robs our cells, making them sick or killing them, a process known as oxidation. An industrialised lifestyle tends to raise oxidation levels due to poor diet, pollution, stress, etc. As we get older we also need more antioxidants, because our bodies generate fewer antioxidant enzymes.

When our level of oxidation is high, the body refuses to convert food into energy, because this further increases the oxidation. The antioxidant charge of hydrogen water helps to adjust the level of oxidation in the body, which enables food to be converted into energy, instead ofbeing stored as fat.

The body refuses to convert energy into food when our oxidation level is high, because burning fat causes even more oxidation. The antioxidant charge of hydrogen water helps us to lower the level of oxidation, enabling the metabolism to transform fat into energy. However, the body never loses fat deposits unless we burn more calories than we consume.

No. hydrogen water has zero calories.

Right from the start you will notice you have more energy, are better hydrated, with improved general well-being, better digestion, better quality rest... But if you are talking about important improvements, you will only notice these after a few weeks or even months, if you manage to reduce oxidative stress, which is the cause of most illnesses and premature ageing.

It is 7 or 7.5, which is very similar to that of blood. Hydrogen increases the pH of water by half a point. Hydrogen has a close relationship with pH, which stands for “Potential of Hydrogen”. It is important to drink pH neutral water so as not to interfere with the correct functioning of the body. Hydrogen water, although it is not alkaline, is very ALKALISING, because it combats acidity in our body to address the main cause of this situation, which is oxidation. 

No. Alkaline water has large quantities of minerals dissolved in it, and it does not normally have an electric charge or contain active hydrogen. Only “ionised alkaline” water has an antioxidant electric charge and some dissolved hydrogen, although most of the electric charge comes from the ionised minerals, which do not have a useful antioxidant charge. The excess minerals in this type of water and its high pH, that come from ionised minerals mean that “ionised alkaline water” is not recommended as a long-term water choice.

No. Some bottled waters contain to many minerals. We recommend you use water with below 100 mg/l of dry residue, which is equivalent to less than 100 ppm or less than 150 µS/cm.

Yes. It is the perfect water to use in the machine provided that the treatment equipment is working correctly.

No. Hydrogen is only suitable for use with “water apt for human consumption with a very low mineralization”.

Yes. You can fill the jug with cold water to hydrogenate it.

Yes, but you must put it in glass bottles which are hermetically sealed and have no air gap, so that it does not lose the hydrogen while it cools.

When you drink it you will notice it has a more atomised, lighter taste, so it does have a subtly different flavour.

No, which is why you must use “water apt for human consumption with a very low mineralization”, to protect the machine and your health.

Hydrogen water maintains its antioxidant properties for up to eight hours, although it can be stored indefinitely in a hermetically sealed glass bottle, filling it completely without an air chamber.

You can shake the bottle without it losing the charge if it is “completely full and with no air chamber”. Abottle that is not completely full will lose the hydrogen if you shake it hard.

Water stored in a glass bottle, hermetically sealed and with no air gap can be transported or kept at home without losing its hydrogen charge.

Yes. When it loses the charge it turns back into normal water and you can hydrogenate it again.

Yes. When it has been hydrogenate for 30 minutes, water reaches its maximum hydrogen level. If we continue to generating hydrogen when it is saturated, it is unable to absorb any more. The excess hydrogen evaporates as it is generated when the water becomes saturated.

Yes. When the 10, 20 or 30 minute cycle programme finishes “hydrogen generation”, it goes into “maintenance” mode, generating far fewer bubbles, to replace the hydrogen that evaporates. It will stay in this state until you remove the jug and put it back again. You can programme it for 30 minutes at night and it will be perfectly hydrogenated in the morning.

After ten minutes it will already have virtually the entire hydrogen charge. If you are going to drink it right away, then ten minutes will suffice. If you are going to drink it later on, then we recommend you hydrogenate it for 20 to 30 minutes, since it will keep its properties for longer.

No.Hydrogen evaporates from the surface of the water in the jug where it mixes with the air and it is not flammable at these concentrations.

ORP stands for oxidation-reduction potential and it is measured in millivolts, which can be positive or negative. “Oxidised” means that it has a positive electric charge and steals electrons. “Reduced or antioxidant” means that it has a negative electric charge and donates electrons.

Yes. The formula of water does not change when it is hydrogenated, although the way the molecules are clustered does change. Normal water has clusters of 12 to 14 molecules of H2O. The hydrogen-rich water has smaller clusters, normally containing six molecules, giving rise to hexagonal water. Each cluster of six molecules of H2O traps a hydrogen molecule, through an ionic link, which carries it to our cells.

Yes. All hydrogen-rich water is hexagonal, due to the electric charge that causes these clusters to form. Not all hexagonal water has an antioxidant electric charge, because hexagonal water can be obtained by activating the water by other means.

This water needs to be there to keep the lower electrode wet where it separates the H2O molecules into oxygen and hydrogen by electrolysis. The oxygen evaporates into the air. The hydrogen generated is attracted to the upper electrode, through the membrane between the electrodes and injected into the jug of water.

There is a silicone stopper at the rear of the machine, at the bottom. It is important to empty it before you move it, otherwise the machine may get wet. When the tank is empty, you can carefully tip the machine to empty the rest of the water.

Copolyester resin (free of bisphenol A) which complies with the highest food quality standards.

Platinum coated titanium.

It only uses 24 watts, which is the same as a low consumption light bulb.

It is made in South Korea with the most advanced Japanese technology. These two countries are close to each other both geographically and culturally and they are the most advanced in the world in the field of hydrogen-rich water.

With a soft sponge and soap. Be careful not to rub the electrodes, which are the metal parts at the base of the jug.

If you use hard water in the jug, lime scale will form. You can remove this by cleaning it: Fill the jug with tap water (this need not be filtered water) and keep your finger on the ‘ON’ button for a few seconds until the word ‘cleaning’ starts flashing and the number “15” appears in the time setting. The red lights on the jug will come on. The jug will generate oxygen instead of hydrogen, so RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT DRINK THIS WATER. You can also  use the citric acid that comes with the machine, following the instructions in the handbook.

Approximately two months, although it depends on how much you use the machine. There's no need to replace the water, just add some when the pilot light comes on.

Depending how often you use the machine, after five years you may need to replace the electrodes. When you change them the device will be operative for a similar period. When the electrodes wear out, you will not be able to switch on the machine.

Hydrogen comes with a two-year guarantee against manufacturing defects. The guarantee includes travel expenses or delivery charges throughout Spain.

No. Even if you drink hydrogen water, vitamins and antioxidant minerals in food are necessary, because they have other vital functions, apart from the antioxidants themselves.

Because it has a WORLD PATENT, a MEMBRANE which separates oxygen from hydrogen, allowing only the hydrogen into the water we drink. Without the membrane we would also drink the active oxygen which is an oxidant, and we would have to use water containing a lot of minerals for it to have any effect. Our membrane allows a high antioxidant charge, even with water with a low mineralisation.
