Hydrogen is the first element on the periodic table, and it is the lightest molecule in the universe. Research over the years have established that molecular hydrogen is a very powerful antioxidant.
As the smallest antioxidant, hydrogen offers a distinct advantage. More than any other antioxidant, hydrogen readily diffuses into every organ and cell in the body which allows maximum availability for achieving antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergy effects. The size feature allows for protection in the subcellular compartments and scavenge cytotoxic oxygen radicals, thus protecting the DNA, RNA and proteins from oxidative stress.
Additionally, hydrogen is selective. When molecular hydrogen enters the human body, it searches out dangerous free radicals and neutralizes them by giving them an extra electron they need. This then creates a by-product H2O, which is actually beneficial and needed by our bodies. In this way, hydrogen prevents imbalances which can occur with other antioxidants.
As the most powerful antioxidant there is, hydrogen offers many health benefits - from anti-aging to anti-cancer. Today, there are over 1000+ peer-reviewed research and studies on molecular hydrogen's effects on over 170 disease models. Please refer to the Research tab on this page for more resources.
H2 is very safe and the risk of overdose is nil. Research demonstrates that there is an amount of H2 that is not enough but there is not an amount that appears to be too much or too high. This is due to the fact that our lungs will simply exhale the excess. H2 does not build up in our system. H2 for ingestion purposes, has an extremely high safety profile.
All intake methods are very beneficial. Based on the latest research, we share which organs and systems benefit most for each intake method. Drinking H2 water benefits metabolic systems most. Inhaling H2 benefits respiratory system, circulatory and cardiovascular systems most. Soaking and Bathing obviously benefits the skin and hair the most.
Experts recommend to use all intake methods in combination for the most benefits. Specifically, research has shown that the combination of drinking hydrogen water and inhaling hydrogen had the most potent effects on signaling pathways and gene expression compared to exclusive use of either method alone.
You can use any type of still water, reverse osmosis (RO), tap water or filtered water. We recommend using pure RO or distilled water because the membrane will not be affected with calcium or mineral build up, which means less cleaning is required.
There have been no reported contraindications for the intake of molecular hydrogen. Its singular purpose is to meet and unite with molecules that are in need of hydrogen. The volume of H2 molecules we absorb has a direct relationship to its ability to find and convert molecules that may be a part of a destructive element in the body. Excess Molecular hydrogen may be excreted in breath and flatus or further metabolized by the intestinal flora.
The Q-Cup Max can reach up to 3 ppm (3000 ppb) of highly concentrated molecular hydrogen with a single 5 minute cycle. You may also run two cycles in a row to reach even higher H2 concentration. However, do not run more than two cycles in a row without releasing the pressure lid to prevent damage.
No, the Q-Cup Max does not filter the water, however, unlike cheaper hydrogen bottles, the Q-Cup Max hydrogen water bottle will not add chlorine and ozone to the water you drink. The special PEM membrane in the hydrogen water bottle allows chlorine and ozone to be separated safely from the hydrogen water.
If your main reason for spending $5,000 on average on an electronic ionizer is molecular Hydrogen (H2), then yes, it does replace it. You still need a good water filter that removes the contaminants you don’t want in your hydrogen water bottle and if that water filter produces H2 water as well, all the better. However, the hydrogen water bottle still fills in where the bigger ionizers cannot do. It’s portable.
Our experience with H2 water is that it supports our natural metabolism. You may experience more energy, and other things about your health may also improve. We do not claim it is a cure-all. However, it supports the body’s natural functions. It supports the production of natural antioxidants such as glutathione. It supports our natural inflammatory cascade. And it may enhance immune system function. By reading the many research studies on hydrogen water you’ll discover all the other amazing ways it supports your health.
- The hydrogen water bottle comes from a company using proven technology we trust and understand. We’ve been testing other models and this one was the best.
- This model has 9 layers of electrodes that make concentrated Hydrogen water faster.
- It has the most advanced SPE and PEM technology and comes with platinum coated ion membrane.
- You get molecular hydrogen concentrates of 3000 ~ 4000 ppb in two 5-minute cycles. Plus you get ORP’s down to -800Mv Oxidation-Reduction.
- Each charge lasts up to 15 batches before needing another charge.
- You can leave the flask at home and use a plastic bottle at the office or gym, with bottleneck adaptor sizes included for most re-usable water bottles.
- Premium non-toxic platinum-coated titanium electrode plates cost more but don’t leach toxic nickel, molybdenum or chromium into the water like cheap imitations.
- Works with all potable water types: RO, filtered water and purified tap water. Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide and Chlorine from tap water are expelled into a bottom waste chamber (Some waters give better H2 levels than others).
If you are using tap water or mineral water, it is likely calcium scale will build up onto the electrode plates faster. Perform a citric acid cleaning when you see less bubbles appearing during hydrogen water generation.
Ideally, clean the electrode plates periodically (1-3 times per month).
To do the cleaning, dissolve 20 grams of citric acid in 200ml of warm water (50°C). Do Not Use Boiling Water. Once dissolved, pour into bottle and leave to soak for 2 hours. Then rinse 2-3 times with clean water.
Note that the base of the hydrogen water bottle contains electronic components, so you should avoid getting water onto the exterior of the base and the charging port and cable.
Simply leave a small amount of water in the bottom of the hydrogen water bottle covering the electrodes/membrane. The Q-Cup Max comes with a white plastic screw-in protective plug that covers the membrane when you are not using it.
