How Hydrogen Is Made and is it Stabilized

Spring Aqua uses water and magnesium to produce hydrogen gas: [Mg + 2H2O –> H2 + Mg(OH)2]. The magnesium hydroxide (Mg(OH–)2) dissociates into magnesium ions (Mg2+ ) and hydroxide [9] ions (OH-) according to the equilibrium: Mg(OH)2 <–> Mg2+ + 2OH–. However, the reaction is not as exothermic and thus does not carry any risk of explosion. This method of hydrogen-rich water production is commonly used among researchers for human studies, because of it's ease of use. The concentration of molecular hydrogen is generally near saturation (1.6 ppm),which allows the subjects to ingest greater quantities of molecular hydrogen without having to consume a copious volume of water (1 liter vs. 10 liters).

Stabilized Dissolved Hydrogen

There is an important relationship between the total amount of hydrogen gas produced and the total amount of dissolved hydrogen gas. The higher the percent of hydrogen gas that gets dissolved the more efficient the system. Thus, if a system were fully optimized you would not see any hydrogen bubbles. Although the presence of bubbles doesn't mean the water contains high hydrogen levels, it also doesn't mean that it contains low hydrogen levels. The hydrogen in Spring Aqua creates a high concentration of dissolved hydrogen at 1.4ppm-1.6ppm mg/L, which above the level required for potential therapeutic benefits. We do not use any electricity which may create unstable water molecules. Spring Aqua believes in creating water the way mother nature intended it to be, natural, structured, like an Eco System in a box.
