Are you looking to lead a healthier life?
The journey towards wellness starts with how you hydrate. Every cell in your body needs water, every single day. Water is key to survival for every living thing on the planet. Without water, there is no life. Your body is composed of between 50 – 60% water. That’s around 40 – 42 liters of water, or approximately 11 gallons.
On an average day we lose around 2 – 2.5 liters of water. This amount increases in hot weather. It is vital to drink water regularly to support your body’s essential functions and replace the water you lose. The type of water you drink makes a huge difference to your health.
The best type of water? Without a doubt - hydrogen water.
How Amazing is Hydrogen?
How much do you remember about hydrogen from grade school science class? You may recall that the element hydrogen is both the smallest and most abundant molecule in the known universe.
In recent decades, scientists have been studying and working with molecular hydrogen, trying to unlock its seemingly limitless potential. Medical research teams are discovering just how incredible this minute molecule is when it is put to work in a medical setting.
There are already well over 1000 published scientific findings on how molecular hydrogen can improve medical endpoints, aid healing and improve a patient’s clinical situation. These studies make fascinating reading – the broad implications for research, therapies and health are phenomenal.
The incredible benefits of molecular hydrogen are not confined to hospitals and medical settings – now you can enjoy the amazing effect of hydrogen in your own home!

Free radicals cause cellular damage and are linked to a list of illnesses and conditions. Experts believe that oxidative stress is linked to many serious health problems, including:
Scary stuff, right?
The short answer is to live a healthy life, but between the pressures and commitments of family, friends, work and everything else, life itself sometimes gets in the way! For most people, living a healthy life must fit around so much. Sometimes, getting it right seems hard to achieve.
To make it all a whole lot easier, there’s Tyent Hydrogen Water.
The journey towards wellness starts with how you hydrate. Hydrogen dissolved in water is key to faster and longer-lasting hydration. Studies show that molecular hydrogen is recognized for its ability to protect cells and tissues from oxidative damage.
The size and structure of hydrogen molecules are also key to their abilities. Unlike other molecules, hydrogen can cross cell membranes – the blood/brain barrier - and target subcellular structures, including the mitochondria of each cell. Drinking hydrogen-rich water has numerous fantastic benefits. Keep reading to learn more!
What is Hydrogen?
The first element on the periodic table is also the most abundant in the universe. Hydrogen is composed of a single proton and a single electron. Researchers estimate that at least 90 percent of the known universe is composed of hydrogen. Without being bound to any other element, this tiny molecule is freely available to be absorbed, incorporated, or dissolved.
Let’s look at the relationship between ionized alkaline water and hydrogen water. Ionized alkaline water is produced by a water ionizer machine. Water flows into the machine, and is guided over and around powerfully-charged plates. The electrical charge splits the water into two streams – acidic and alkaline – and infuses the water with naturally potent levels of molecular hydrogen.
This process is called electrolysis. It enables the ‘free’ and available hydrogen gas to dissolve into water. It is the presence of hydrogen gas that gives alkaline water many of its legendary benefits and it’s no wonder that so many people are excited about it.
One of the most remarkable scientific discoveries of recent decades has its roots in ancient times. For generations, people have flocked to ‘healing springs’ and ‘fountains of youth’ - the famed natural waters in countries such as Japan, Mexico, India, and Lourdes in France.
We now know why these ‘miracle springs’ work – they contain an abundance of dissolved hydrogen gas. For hundreds of years, people have availed themselves of the therapeutic properties of the waters. In the absence of a scientific explanation, the waters were hailed as miraculous – even Holy.
As well as the many benefits of drinking hydrogen water, studies show that ‘healing springs’ around the world are genuinely therapeutic as they contain dissolved hydrogen gas. These previously mythical places have emerged as being relevant to modern-day science and the constant quest for ways to improve our health.
It’s amazing to think that our forefathers knew about hydrogen water and its benefits, before science caught up and gave us the tools to understand why ‘taking the waters’ really does work.
Our ancient ancestors knew that water with hydrogen was beneficial to long-term health! It’s quite remarkable to now be able to understand the science behind the ‘miracle,’ and it’s all down to hydrogen water!
Hydrogen – Where It All Begins
Let’s take a closer look at water itself. Water (H20) is comprised of two hydrogen atoms for each oxygen atom. Hydrogen gas is the chemical formula H2. It’s also the smallest molecule and can diffuse quickly in the body at the cellular level.
A 2010 article on molecular hydrogen, published in Free Radical Research stated:
“It is not an overstatement to say that hydrogen’s impact on therapeutic and preventive medicine could be enormous in the future.”
Hydrogen water is worth getting excited about. Here’s more science to explain why hydrogen water is different from regular water.
Water is H2O – literally two hydrogen atoms for each oxygen atom. ‘Ordinary’ water has an equal number of OH- ions (hydroxyl ions) and H+ ions (hydrogen ions). Alkaline water is water with more OH- ions than H+ ions. In other words, alkaline water has far more oxygen atoms than regular water!
Source water contains an equal number of hydroxyl (OH) ions and hydrogen (H+) ions. Alkaline water contains more OH-ions than H+ ions, providing far more oxygen atoms than regular water.
Antioxidant Properties of Hydrogen
Oxygen is the colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that we need to live. Oxygen is vital for changing food into energy and heat. As essential as it is, oxygen can be problematic when it comes to oxidation.
Oxidation is the process in which one substance – frequently oxygen – triggers chemical changes in another substance.
We all breathe oxygen to survive, but did you know that we don’t utilize all the oxygen that we breathe? Your body cannot store excess oxygen. Any oxygen we cannot use is converted to free radicals – those seriously problematic molecules mentioned above.
Free radicals are unstable atoms that can attach themselves to healthy cells in your body. Once attached, oxidation begins. This kind of decay can damage cell proteins, lipids, and even your DNA. Scientists have linked free radicals to the acceleration of the natural aging process. If free radicals are left to overwhelm your body's ability to neutralize or regulate them, oxidative stress can follow.
It's enough to make you panic, but there’s no need – you can take action instead. Drinking hydrogen-rich alkaline water is a delicious, hydrating way to line up your defense. Alkaline water effectively neutralizes free radicals. You can battle those pesky free radicals by delivering a slew of powerful, antioxidant hydrogen molecules to stop them in their tracks.
Dr. Nancy McClellan DC Dipl. Ac. tells us:
"Tyent Water, along with all of its other benefits, neutralizes free radicals in a very effective manner."
