How Hydrogen Works
Human, animal, and cell studies show that hydrogen exerts its beneficial effects via three primary methods.
- It instantaneously converts toxic hydroxyl radicals to water (H2 + 2 * OH -> 2H2O).
- It maintains the homeostatic levels of our body’s antioxidants (e.g. glutathione).
- It has a beneficial effect on cell signaling, cell metabolism, and gene expression, which gives it anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-aging effects.
Hydrogen is Natural and Safe
Hydrogen gas is not a foreign substance like a drug or pharmaceutical that is alien to the body. After a fiber rich meal, our gut bacteria produce hydrogen gas, which diffuses into the blood and exerts many beneficial effects. According to the research, drinking water that contains solubilized hydrogen gas is the most effective method to deliver hydrogen to the body. Interestingly, it is also the oldest method. Since the dawn of time, there has been talk of natural healing spring waters and the mythical fountains of youth with stories of miraculous healings and outstanding longevity. These stories seem to be but fables and legends; however, recent investigations of some of these healing waters in Japan; Tlacote, Mexico; Nadone, India; Lourdes, France, etc. all show that these waters are therapeutic, and that they contain available dissolved hydrogen gas.
It makes sense that because hydrogen has been so intimately involved in the origins of life, it would still benefit us today. Perhaps this is why we developed a symbiotic relationship with the H2 producing bacteria in our guts, and also why nature produced springs rich in hydrogen gas: to benefit its creations. Hydrogen appears to benefit all forms of life including plants.
Hydrogen in Ionized Water
The bio medical field was caught by surprise in 2007, when an article published in the prestigious journal of Nature Medicine demonstrated that something as natural and simple as molecular hydrogen could have such stunning biological benefits. With the new understanding of the active role of hydrogen gas, we are now able to understand why thousands of people benefited from “ionized water”. Many people taught that the increased pH was the cause of the benefits but now we know that it is molecular hydrogen dissolved is the true cause of benefits.
Ionized water is produced via electrolysis, which separates water to available oxygen gas and hydrogen gas (2H2O -> O2 + 2H2), which would dissolve into the water. In 1965, the Japanese Ministry of Health Labor and Welfare approved ionized water as a medical substance to help with various gastrointestinal symptoms. However, the numerous clinical reports and empirical evidence of therapeutic benefits clearly demonstrated that this water contained molecular hydrogen which has been shown to be a therapeutic agent. It is now well recognized that H2 gas is the great secret. Research has shown that removal of the hydrogen gas in ionized water eliminates the benefits, and addition of extra hydrogen gas to the water increases the therapeutic benefits.
Revolutionary Echo® H2 Tablets
These products all had low solubility, low hydrogen-producing capability, low effectiveness, and when added to water, produced unaesthetic and unpalatable drinking water. Nevertheless, numerous people have experienced miraculous benefits from using these products, but a new development was badly needed.
Finally in mid-2014 an industry expert in manufacturing and product development, joined hands with a well-recognized authority on molecular hydrogen, and together through months of tests, measurements, chemistry calculations and headaches, they created the ultimate hydrogen tablet. The Echo® H2 tablet is designed to be added to ≈500 mL of water and wait for 10-20 minutes as millions of molecular hydrogen nano-bubbles are produced, and then drink. One Echo® H2 tablet can produce a 2-6.5 ppm of H2 concentration, which is 1 – 4 times more than any other hydrogen-producing tablets.
Natural & Therapeutic Ingredients
The Echo® H2 tablet contains only natural, Gluten Free ingredients in a proprietary patent pending formula that includes magnesium, Advantose 100 (Maltose), malic acid, magnesium fumarate, fumaric acid that work synergistically in the formula and also in the body.
Magnesium is an essential mineral for the body and is required by over 300 enzymes as a metal ion co factor. Many people have poor diets and are slightly deficient in this vital mineral.
Malic acid and fumaric acid are natural organic molecules produced in the mitochondria during the citric acid cycle. Malic acid can improve the function of the mitochondria and has potential ergogenic benefits. Fumaric acid has some medicinal properties including its ability to activate the Nrf2 pathway, which helps in detoxification and antioxidation.
Reported Benefits of Hydrogen Tablet
Numerous people have experienced the benefits of these new tablets and can attest to their miraculous ability to help the body, do what it does best. Many people suffering from recalcitrant pain due injuries and aging have had their pain alleviated; athletes are training harder and breaking more records than ever before. People are sleeping deeper and can function better with less sleep. People find that they have more energy throughout the day and are able to stay mentally alert and focused for longer periods of time.
