The body was designed to make its own hydrogen gas when you’re digesting food. You should be able to make 10 to 12 liters of hydrogen gas per day on a regular diet. This is how humans lived for thousands and thousands of years. Once we started creating pesticides and overusing antibiotics, our guts got ruined. We need hydrogen water because our guts are not functioning. At least 97% of the population has a dysfunctional gut – we are not producing hydrogen the way we should. The primary role of hydrogen is to reduce oxidation or to keep oxidation in a normal range. When we don’t have hydrogen gas, oxidation rises until we get what we call oxidative stress.
Most antioxidants are electron donors. The problem with electron donors is once you donate that electron, you now have a prooxidant left behind that the body also has to get rid of with hydrogen. Hydrogen is so strongly sought after by the medical community because it’s an elective antioxidant. It only reaches and reacts with reactive oxygen species; it doesn’t react with life-sustaining radicals. In fact, it’s more potent than an antioxidant. Hydrogen water becomes a tool that we can use to replenish and reinvigorate our bodies.
So typically, we eat three times a day. We have food going into our gastrointestinal tract, we convert those foods into hydrogen and methane, and several other gases. It’s absolutely appropriate to have hydrogen gas going into the body multiple times a day, not just us as therapy, but actually happening multiple times a day to regulate pathways. We don’t just want to pump the body full of hydrogen; we want to have signal modulation going on. Overall, have hydrogen water multiple times a day to see the best benefits; it should be part of your daily habits.
People who drink hydrogen water will feel more mental clarity. Anytime you’re drinking hydrogen water, that is the fastest and highest way to get ghrelin secretions to the brain. As soon as that water hits your stomach with hydrogen gas, it selectively stimulates ghrelin secretions to the hippocampus, hypothalamus, and brainstem. When you do a water fast with hydrogen water, you will most likely not get hungry during the fast. In addition, with hydrogen water, you will feel an increase in energy because the mitochondria of the body are offloaded as soon as the oxidative stress is reduced.
