How to Do It

There are two options:

  1. Immerse a tablet in a glass of water, and consume the fizziness that comes to the surface. 
  2. The other way is to drink water enriched with molecular hydrogen. Air Water Life offers different options for therapeutic antioxidants. They are incredible, portable, and easy to use devices to get hydrogen-rich water!

Why it works

  • Due to its tiny size, because it is a molecule of simple composition, it can enter the cell's mitochondria and reduce oxidative stress.
  • It has an effect on physical performance by reducing the level of fatigue. Specifically, it decreases the level of lactic acid that is produced when we exercise.
  • Molecular hydrogen can indirectly influence gene expression. Thus, it can modify the mechanisms related to inflammation and pain.
  • They have an alkalizing effect on the blood, so they can regulate the pH, for example in the acidosis produced by regular exercise.
