Benefits of Hydrogen Rich Water
What can one expect from adding Hydrogen-Rich Water to his or her diet?
Hydrogen Enriched Water has been shown to help people in many ways:
- helps hydrate joints and muscles; our body is 70% water
- keeps hydrate our brains so the mind is functions better and is more alert; the brain is over 70% water needing hydration to function
- helps the body better absorb nutrients
- helps in circulation and digestion
- helps regulate body temperature
- helps women have easier pregnancies and healthier babies
- helps detoxify cells
- helps relieve tension which may lead to benefits with blood pressure, decreased headaches, common, arthritic type symptoms, back discomfort and other chronic discomfort symptoms
- helps to decrease the risk of colon cancer, bladder cancer and breast cancer
How is all this possible?
How can hydrogen rich water from the hydrogen water stick do all this?
The truth is that hydrogen rich water and the hydrogen stick which generates hydrogen are just tools. The body is the real miracle machine. The body is able to utilize free hydrogen atoms to do several things.
First, when hydrogen atoms are available, bodily tissues use them to hydrate the tissues. Indeed, the word hydrate comes from hydrogen. Also, the cells of body can use hydrogen atoms to control oxidation by reducing or quenching oxidants (free radicals) in the cells. Finally, hydrogen atoms are used in the mitochondria to create additional energy.
In bullet form, there are really three direct mechanisms involved that allow for above benefits:
- Anti-oxidation — Hydrogen atoms function as antioxidants, helping to reduce damage from free radicals virtually everywhere in the body, thus helping reduce the inflammatory, aging and chronic disease processes.
- Fuels the ATP engine of the mitochondria — Hydrogen, literally, fuels the ATP engine that powers every cell in the body. More fuel means more work can be done, less food needs to be eaten, and less food further reduces the oxidative load the body has to deal with.
- Smaller Water Cluster Size - Free hydrogen changes the electrical charge in the water which causes water molecules to form smaller groups and allows for easier hydration and transport of vitamins and minerals.

In November 1995 I presented a hypothesis known by the title: śWater Regulating Theory (Hayashi's Model)' in a US health magazine. It says that active oxygen could be scavenged or reduced by atomic hydrogen, which results in production of H2O to give again a birthplace for every life form.
My hypothesis was born from the clinical observation study in our clinic. Since May 1985 we have confirmed thousands of clinical improvements, obtained solely by exchanging drinking (as well as cooking water) from tap water to reduced water (hydrogen rich water). Those improvements were very exciting and some of them were considered to be miraculous at that time, when Shirahata's paper was not yet submitted. It should be remembered that such putrefied metabolites are the same ones which are produced as a result of putrefaction of protein. The difference lies only in the fact that the former putrefaction process is brought about by intestinal microbes, whereas the latter is brought about by airborne microbes. Based on these facts, I proposed a hypothesis Pre-and post hepatic Organ Theory' in 1988, 1989 & 1990 at the International Symposium on Man and His Environment in Health and Disease' held at Dallas, Texas, USA.
I stated that, as it is impossible to purify the polluted water in the St. Laurence River without purifying the polluted water in Lake Ontario, so it should be impossible to improve the disorders of post hepatic organs, without trying to improve the disorder of pre hepatic organs, namely putrefaction in gastrointestinal tract. Such clinical experiences have led us to recognize that reduced water is not only effective for restoration of intestinal flora metabolism, but also could be effective in scavenging active oxygen. Our clinical observation data, and my hypothesis, were delivered to Prof. Shirahata in April 1996 and his research has since started.
Shirahata's paper means that cell metabolism, either microbial or cancerous, depends on its intracellular water, namely cell metabolism. This can vary according to the property of intracellular water, i.e. hydrogen-rich or not. And even cancer cells might lose their characteristic feature of unlimited proliferation when they are immersed in hydrogen-rich water, originated and developed in Japan, but totally unknown in the past throughout the world. The solution might now be in our hands. Our 'new water' should be the first choice for all of us to take, as has been suggested by Happe, Shirahata and ourselves.
Case study presentations showed improvements of diabetes, hepatoma & atopic dermatitis. Now, there could be no wonder why such clinical improvements have been obtained. In short, the ' invisible reaction' of active hydrogen against active oxygen was regulated at first. As a result of it, 'visible reaction', so-called clinical exam data as well as clinical symptoms have been improved.

- Experiences of pregnant women who took hydrogen-rich water during their pregnancy; almost no emesis, smooth delivery, slight jaundice, enough lactation, smooth and satisfactory growth of newborns
Devices to produce reduced water were introduced into our clinic in May 1985. Soon after, the Hydrogen Producing Mineral Stick was designed to make hydrogen-rich water available inexpensively and more efficiently to all. This Hydrogen Producing Mineral Stick showed to be a more effective source of hydrogen than electrolyzed-reduced water with no concern of hydrogen gas dissipating within minutes after being poured. This then allowed even better results to follow. Based on the clinical experiences obtained in the past 15 years, it can be said that introduction of naturally reduced water (using H-01 Active Hydrogen Generator; later named The Hydrogen Producing Mineral Stick), or electrolyzed-reduced water for drinking and cooking purpose for in-patients should be the very prerequisite in our daily medical practices. It is because any dietary recipe cannot be a scientific one if property of water taken by the patients is not taken into consideration.
The Ministry of Health and Welfare in Japan announced in 1965 that the intake of reduced water is effective for restoration of intestinal flora metabolism.
