Benefits of HYDROGEN WATER for the intake of medicines and dietary supplements. What do we need to know?

Did you know that in Japan and South Korea there are already hydrogen water machines installed in a number of hospitals and professional sports schools. Health institutions in these countries are even working closely with the private sector to develop and manufacture such devices for home and personal use. It is worth noting here that with water enriched with hydrogen gas (H2), the most important thing is the concentration of H2. However large the volume of a glass, jug or dispenser of hydrogen water - it would be useless if the H2 saturation in it is low. And remember: the hydrogen gas dissolved in the water is retained in it for 1-2 hours and gradually evaporates after the enrichment process, by electrolysis. If you have decided to improve your health condition by daily intake of H2, be sure to choose a device with a higher saturation of molecular hydrogen. These are the devices with H2 saturation above 1200 ppb (1.2 ppm). It is recommended that daily intake be fasted between meals.

Since 2007, more than 1000 clinical studies have been performed on patients taking hydrogen water in various hospitals around the world. H2 has been shown to have a therapeutic effect on over 170 types of diseases and a healing effect on every organ of the human body. However, in this article, we will look at the effect of hydrogen water in the intake of medicines and dietary supplements.

A fact that many people don't know is that any medication has an oxidative effect on the body and produces free radicals dangerous to our health. This is only a part of the so called side effects of medicines. We have often heard someone say, "...I fix one thing and I ruin another!". Excessive oxidative stress is a major cause of damage to our cells and organs, and the onset of serious diseases such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular and many others. Drug therapy is inevitable these days, but it has its negative health consequences as well. This is what the lengthy package leaflets for each pharmaceutical product are all about.

Research has shown that hydrogen gas (molecular hydrogen /H2/) is the most powerful and effective antioxidant known to science. And it is the smallest element - its molecule is only 2 microns and penetrates everywhere in the body, even into the cell nucleus and nerve cells. This allows it to effectively affect neurological and degenerative diseases. Studies on patients have shown that taking H2 significantly reduces oxidative stress caused by drug therapy. Thus, molecular hydrogen supports the action of drugs, largely protecting the body from their harmful side effects. Observations on cancer patients on chemo and radiation therapy are significant. An improvement in their quality of life as well as a greater reduction in the size of malignant growths has been found. No negative side effects on the health of the studied patients were found. The H2 safety studies are published and systematized on the website of the Institute of Molecular Hydrogen.


Diseases are formed as a result of oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Once a disease occurs, it in turn causes more free radicals and oxidative stress. This means more and stronger inflammatory processes in the body. Because of its powerful antioxidant effect, H2 quells inflammation everywhere in the body. It repairs damaged cells and DNA, and brings the body to a state of homeostasis. Results from a study by Japanese Professor Hatana Gyazuki of Shitama University show that 1.5 litres of hydrogen water with a H2 concentration of 1500 ppb has the same antioxidant effect as 1407 apples / 104 carrots / 2061 bananas / 123 spinach or 10 pumpkins. The comparison is based on the antioxidant power of the beta carotene content of these fruits and vegetables.

In fact, hydrogen has been a natural element in our body since we have existed. It is synthesized naturally in our gastrointestinal tract by good bacteria and by certain enzymes. Our poor eating habits and the poor quality food we consume have resulted in consistently low levels of molecular hydrogen in our bodies. A two-month study on young soccer players in China from late 2019 found that hydrogen water intake significantly improved the quality and diversity of their gut flora. The medical report cites hydrogen as "a critically important element for gastrointestinal health." Better nutrient absorption has been shown. As a result of research over the past 10 years, a number of professional sports schools have added hydrogen water intake to their program. A large number of clinical studies on diabetic and overweight patients have shown that hydrogen water intake improves their glucose tolerance and lipid metabolism.


The H2MEDICAL team truly strives to educate the public, as well as contribute to a better quality of life for everyone. Our devices have medical certification and are distinguished by maximum therapeutic effect as well as the highest safety class. /see the devices/
