FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)


Hydrogen-rich water (or hydrogen water as it is called in Japan) is colorless, odorless, tasteless water with a high concentration of hydrogen. Generally, hydrogen-rich water is made through electrolysis. Electrolysis can result in two types of water, one with higher concentrations of oxygen (acidic electrolyzed water) and one with higher concentrations of hydrogen (alkaline electrolyzed water). Hydrogen is a reducing agent. In other words hydrogen fights oxidation (anti-oxidant), which is a source of aging and has been attributed to degenerative diseases in the human body.

 

富氫水,又名水素水(Hydrogen Water)。 水中溶入適量氫氣,在日本稱呼氫水為水素水。 味道很中性,跟喝開水或純淨水無分別,無色無味無氣。 氫氣本身就是一種最佳天然抗氧化劑,是負電位水,所以加入氫氣的水具有很強的還原功能,可以中和身體血液和細胞裡的活性氧(自由基)。 富氫水具有超過所有維生素A、C、E、綠茶等人類已知的抗氧化劑,負電位達到驚奇的-500mV,全面清除人體惡性活性氧(自由基)。惡性活性氧造成各種癌症和生活常見病,可謂是「萬病之源」。 富氫水中的氫分子含量是普通弱鹼性離子水的20倍,清除人體內酸性物質的能力更強。
There are no safety issues with hydrogen; it has been used for years in gas mixtures for deep diving and in numerous clinical trials without adverse events, and there are no warnings in the literature of its toxicity or long- term exposure effects. Molecular hydrogen has proven useful and convenient as a novel antioxidant and modifier of gene expression in many conditions where oxidative stress and changes in gene expression result in cellular damage.

 

使用氫氣沒有安全問題。它已被使用多年在深海潛水的混合氣體中,和在許多臨床試驗中,都沒有不良情況,並且有關它的毒性研究或長期暴露影響的文獻中,沒有發出任何警告。在許多的情況中,就是在細胞受傷後做成的氧化應激和基因表達的改變,氫分子已經被證明有用和方便作為新型抗氧化劑和基因表達的調節劑。

Reduced water is water with negative ORP. Negative ORP -- Active Hydrogen neutralizes Active Oxygen (free radicals) in your body that cause aging and disease. Is micro-clustered and easily absorbed helping to keep your body properly hydrated.

 

Will gradually wash away the the acid waste buildup in your body caused by years of metabolizing food. Will help create an alkaline buffer in your blood stream, so that if you do consume something acidic, it is neutralized. Is easily absorbed into the intestines to eliminate toxins from the colon Permeates cell membranes to carry oxygen in and wastes out. Will do all this simply by drinking 8 glasses of water a day.

 

氧化還原電位 (Oxidation Reduction Potential,簡稱 ORP) 是水溶液氧化還原能力的測量指標,其單位是mV (millivolts)。 如水的ORP值為 (+) 正數,即水為氧化劑,數值越高,代表水的氧化能力越強;如水的ORP值為 (-) 負數,即水為還原劑,或稱「抗氧化劑」,數值越低,代表水的還原能力 (把氧化逆轉的能力,即抗氧化能力)越強。

 

當「氧化還原電位值」為負數時,一般簡稱為「負電位」。

 

負電位水,亦俗稱為「還原水」或「還元水」。Akaline活水器利用天然礦石產生負電位,能產生特強負電位,最高可達 -600mV (負600mV),毋須電源,非一般電解還原水機能媲美。

Free radicals are highly aggressive molecules which react very fast to their environment because of an impaired electron. Free radicals can influence important matters ocurring naturally in the body, and they can cause in a particular way damage the body cells right down to their degeneration ( tumor development, aging ). They also take part in the damaging of, blood vessels, intestines, colon skin, lung, eyes and fetch out over 200 kinds of difference chronic disease inside the body.

 

There are numerous types of free radicals that can be formed within the body. This web site is only concerned with the oxygen centered free radicals or ROS. The most common ROS include: the superoxide anion (O2-), the hydroxyl radical (OH-), singlet oxygen (1O2 ), and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) Superoxide anions are formed when oxygen (O2) acquires an additional electron, leaving the molecule with only one unpaired electron.

 

To protect the organism substances are needed which can interrupt the reactionary chains of the free radicals. These so called “radical scavenger” or antioxidants are substances which have a free electron they can pass on to the aggressive radical molecule so that it can be rendered harmless to the greatest possible degree.

 

在物理學角度而言,自由基是具有不成對電子的化合物,也就是具有奇數電子的原子、分子或離子。由於電子的不能成對,所以自由基是一非常活躍而不穩定的體內破壞物質,其中有O2-(超氧),H2O2(過氧化氫),HO.(氫氧基)等都比較有代表性,它必須從外部或其他物質取得一個電子,才能達到穩定狀態。

 

自由基會毫無選擇性的不斷攻擊正常細胞和體內組織,引起連鎖性的過氧化反應,不但使人體出現酸化現象,還會引起各種退化性症候群,如血管變得硬化、免疫系統功能衰退、腦細胞容易老化、退化性關節炎、白內障發生、皮膚鬆弛和全面性的老化加速等現象。
Scientists around the world were analyzed based on a large number of the world's longevity areas. In the survey results, the six criteria of quality of drinking water, which has become the good water standard of World Health Organization (WHO).

 

世界各地科學家根據對世界長壽地區的大量調查結果進行分析,提出優質飲用水的6條標準,這也成為世界衛生組織(WHO)認定的好水標準:

 

  • Clean Water 乾淨的水——不含病菌、雜質、有機物和重金屬等的水。
  • Healthy Water 營養的水——含有適當比例的礦物質及微量元素,且以離子狀態存在。

Shigeo Ohta, Chief Professor of Institute on Aging Disease, Nippon Medical University, had described in 2007 related articles: hydrogen as a kind of antioxidant treatment and prevention, which works by selectively reducing the number of cells that attacked by strong oxidants such as hydroxyl radical (• OH) and peroxynitrite( ONOO-) to complete. H2 through the effect of oxidative stress on cell has a protective effect.

 

Recent studies have found that besides hydrogen can be selectively reacted with free radicals, the hydrogen molecule is small and electrically neutral, its excellent diffusion, hydrogen can easily get through biological membranes and play its antioxidant capacity. Those characteristics of hydrogen determine its application in biomedical field has a very good prospect.

 

So far, the researchers observed a variety of experimental animal models and clinical cases and determined the hydrogen can treat many diseases. Hydrogen’s most important effect in oxidative stress-related diseases has a good therapeutic result, such as neonatal brain hypoxia, Parkinson's disease etc. Research reports also recently show that using hydrogen treatment of diabetes, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, cancer and other major human diseases.

 

日本醫科大學老年病研究所首席教授太田成男,在2007 年的相關論文中進行了闡述:氫氣作為一種具有治療和預防作用的抗氧化劑,它起作用是通過選擇性地減少強氧化劑如羥基自由基(•OH) 和過氧化亞硝酸鹽(ONOO-)細胞數量來完成的,H2 通過抗氧化應激的效果,對細胞具有保護作用。

 

最近的研究發現,氫氣除了可以選擇性地和自由基反應,氫氣分子小且呈電中性,其擴散性極佳,氫能輕易地穿過生物膜發揮其抗氧化能力,以上特點決定了氫在生物醫學領域具有良好的應用前景。

 

到目前為止,研究人員使用多種實驗動物模型和臨床病例觀察,確定了氫氣可以治療許多疾病,氫氣最重要的效應是對氧化應激相關疾病有很好的治療效果,例如新生兒腦缺氧、帕金森病等,最近也有利用氫氣治療糖尿病、動脈硬化、高血壓病、腫瘤等人類重大疾病的研究報導。
Users are advised to drink 1.5 to 2.0L Hydrogen Rich Water daily. At least take each 0.5L in the morning and evening to help the body recover from damage or oxidation due to free radicals or active oxygen.

 

Initial drinking of Hydrogen Rich Water may appear “recovery symptom”.

 

The water cluster size of Hydrogen Rich Water is relative small and its penetration and dissolving power is extremely high. Together with its high anti-oxidation power, Hydrogen Rich Water will improve body health from oxidation due to free radicals or active oxygen. Meanwhile, Hydrogen Rich Water will help the internal organs to dispose toxic material and waste via kidney, lung, stool and body fluid. When our body turn from “abnormal” to become “normal”, we may feel various level of “illness feeling” during this process such as bellyache if increase gastric motility, thin stool, and/or hands and feet slightly edema etc. We may call those are recovery symptom. Generally, recovery symptom will disappear within 1-2 weeks. Serious recovery symptom may take place only 2-5 days and it is not apply to all persons. However, in some cases, recovery symptom may appear and disappear on and off again and again. If one get serious recovery symptom, it may reflect that person is having not good health situation. It will also happen that some people get recovery symptom when they drinking Hydrogen Rich Water after a period and gradually improve by 2-3 weeks.

 

In a survey of over 1000 patients that drinking reduced water (water with negative oxidation reduction potential including Hydrogen Rich Water), about one-third of persons have various level of recovery symptom while most of them are light cases. Recovery symptom as:

 

1. Person with acidic body fluid: feel dry mouth, weakness in hands and feet, bloating and exhaust more, and irritability.
2. Hypertension patients: may appear weakness in hands and feet, dizziness for 1-2 weeks.
3. Indigestion patients: bloating, not willing to take food.
4. Gastric ulcer patients: Abdominal pain or feel depressed.
5. Gastroptosis patients: sometimes mild stomach pain, feel nausea and vomiting.
6. Abnormal liver function patients: want vomiting, slightly itchy skin or show eczema.
7. Kidney disease patients: appear facial edema, while feet, back may also slightly edema.
8. Patients with chronic bronchitis: may have dizziness and sputum difficult to spit.
9. Rheumatic diseases patients: may have mild joint pain.
(N.B. Cannot record all situation and recovery symptom will vary case by case.)

 

建議每日飲用1.5-2.0升富氫水,而最基本是早上及晚上各飲0.5升的富氫水,就是氫容存度在800ppb或以上的富氫水,幫助消除自由基(活性氧)的壞影響。

 

初期飲用富氫水可能出現的“復原反應”

 

由於富氫水有較強的溶解力和滲透力,且氧化還原電位為負值,能夠改善體內過氧化狀態,可將體內毒素、廢物等經由腎、肺、糞便和體液排除體外,因此初飲富氫水可能有尿多、糞便變稀等現象。另外,由於富氫水含有豐富的鈣、鎂離子,可使過去不太正常或有功能障礙的內臟慢慢恢復正常,往往讓人有些不適的感覺,如胃腸蠕動增加會有腹痛的感覺,大便稀薄,手腳輕微水腫等現象。人體由”不正常”向”回復正常”的逆轉過程中,會出現不同程度的不適反應,這種不適反應可稱之為“復原反應”。一般反應常在1-2周內消失,較強烈的時間約略只是2-5天,而且不是每個人都會發生的,但也有個別人士會出現反覆。反應較強者可能顯示其本身健康狀況不佳,也有部分患者的反應不會很快發生,而要經過一段時間,然後逐漸改善,通常需要2-3周時間。

 

有學者曾對超過1000多名飲用負電位水(富氫水亦是負電位水)的人群進行隨訪,發現差不多有三分一人有不同程度的“復原反應”,而大多數反應輕微,其表現如下:

 

1. 酸性體質者:感到口乾舌燥,四肢無力,腹脹、排氣較多,煩躁易怒。
2. 高血壓患者:可能會出現沉重無力的感覺,頭暈症狀會持續1-2周。
3. 消化不良者:腹脹,有時不願進食。
4. 胃潰瘍者:上腹痛或者鬱悶不適的感覺。
5. 胃下垂者:胃部有時輕微疼痛,噁心欲嘔吐。
6. 肝功能不正常者:想嘔吐,皮膚會略有瘙癢或出疹現象。
7. 腎臟病者:面部水腫,足、背也可能出輕度水腫。
8. 慢性支氣管炎患者:會出現頭暈和痰不易咯出的現象。
9. 風濕病患者:關節輕微疼痛。
(注意:所有情況不能盡錄,並且會因人而異。)

 

飲用富氫水可以幫助人體排泄多餘的酸性代謝廢物,並可提供更多的抗氧化氫離子,中和、清除有害的自由基,從而延緩衰老,祛病健身。
