OK - my last blog might've flipped you out because you have to change your diet and maybe cut out some things that you really like to eat...so I'm going to give you the superduper fastest way to anti-inflame your body.
Read Reverse Aging by Shang Wang!
No time? Then read this blog!!
I have read so many different and diverse theories on water, that my head is spinning! Yet I find that water is one of the most important tools we have to help keep us healthy. Many of the people I speak to are also confused at what is the best water to drink. There are hundreds of systems available and arguments for every one of them. The more I researchedthe more confusing it became to decide which system is the best. Recently, I was at the Truth About Cancer Conference in Dallas, Texas and I was introduced to Echo Water! This was the first time I had heard about Echo Water, so I was very curious to understand the theory behind it.
I had heard of alkaline water, and in fact had read Sang Whang's book on anti-aging and the benefits of alkaline water, but I hadn't heard of hydrogen enriched water.
So I started thinking-isn't water made up of hydrogen? So why do I need to add more of it? What benefits do I get from hydrogen enriched water?
We all know that water's molecular structure (H2O) is formed by the combination of 2 gases- hydrogen and oxygen. But did you know that each of these gases perform a specific function? Oxygen is an oxidizer and hydrogen is a reducer and once you combine them, it is now a liquid -hence "water" the key to life. Without it you die. You cannot do a fast and stop drinking water-but you can fast off of food. So this makes water more immediately important than even food.
So how is it possible to make water better? Or more specifically, better for you?
I guess it all starts with what an oxidant is because Oxygen (O2) is a well-known oxidant. In chemistry an oxidizing agent (oxidant, oxidizer) is a substance that has the ability to oxidize other substances (cause them to lose electrons). When these other substances lose electrons, they become unstable. That is why we care so much about antioxidants! We care about them in our food to help counteract oxidation and we care about it in our skin care even. But what about our water? What if we can get our water to become our best antioxidant ever? It's something we need to do anyway, and we do all the time - Hydrogen is amazing! It was involved in the genesis of life and oxygen, even though it's an accident, it is still necessary for the existence of life. We breathe in oxygen (an oxidizer) all the time- pushing our bodies towards oxidation. So wouldn't consuming hydrogen be the perfect and natural way to balance the oxidation from oxygen?
After speaking with Paul Barattiero the owner of Echo Water, I believed so! Echo Water contains dissolved molecular hydrogen or diatomic hydrogen. I think that would be awesome way to get huge amounts of antioxidants!
Consider the following thoughts:
- If your gut is healthy, you can produce up to 10 liters of hydrogen gas per day. (Say what??)
- This H2 combines with Hydroxyl radicals (most cytotoxic free radical into water molecules).
- It also H2 stimulates gastric Ghrelin secretions which increases cognitive function (yeah, that means it could help Autism, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Bipolar, Schizophrenia,
- Keep in mind: Oxidative stress is thought to be the leading cause of disease.
- H2 reduces oxidative stress and inflammation.
- H2 has been shown in to greatly reduce Rheumatoid Arthritis and joint issues.
- 600 studies showing therapeutic benefits in 150+ human disease models and every organ in the body.
Wow! That's a lot to think about - or not to think about; you won't have to think about it if it's already in your water, right?
Let's discover how hydrogen enriched water can help you....
Molecular hydrogen has tremendous benefits. Peer reviewed scientific studies have shown molecular hydrogen significantly helps oxidative stress, inflammation, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes, Colon Cancer, Autoimmune, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Autism, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, fatigue when participating in physical activity, depression, weight loss, and Hydroxyl Radicals.
But we're not done with this list yet - In addition to helping with existing conditions, molecular hydrogen is very good at prevention of conditions. It is truly one of the best anti-aging tools you can use. Can you dig that?
So you see, not all waters are created equal!
Don't stop reading here....If you're interested in the science of hydrogen water, its creation and how you get benefits read on!
- Why is H2 Important?
The H2 molecule, unlike other antioxidants, is a selective antioxidant that only targets the damaging free radicals like hydroxyl radicals (HO*), converting them to water. It can also prevent oxidative stress by increasing the body's own antioxidants such as glutathione. It also has beneficial cell signaling properties. The hydroxide (OH-) ions are responsible for the alkaline pH, but they are not antioxidants themselves. Finally, in 2007, it was clearly shown that molecular hydrogen is what caused the benefits in the water. H2 gas can act as a selective antioxidant and is responsible for the therapeutic properties observed with alkaline or ionized water. No one had investigated hydrogen gas before: everyone assumed it was just an inert byproduct of electrolysis - with no biological effect. If we remove hydrogen gas from ionized water the therapeutic effects are lost. When we add additional hydrogen gas to ionized water (e.g. via bubbling) the positive benefits, in many cases, are increased.
- How Does Electrolysis Create Hydrogen?
Electrolysis of water has been used for decades to produce hydrogen gas. It converts water (H2O) to hydrogen gas (H2) and hydroxide ions (OH-) at the negative side (cathode), and oxygen gas (O2) and hydrogen ions (H+) at the positive side (anode). Water electrolysis machines have a membrane that separates the alkaline OH- ions from the acidic H+ ions. The outlet from one side of the membrane gives alkaline water, which contains dissolved hydrogen gas (H2), and the other side of the membrane gives acidic water, containing dissolved oxygen gas (O2).
- Why do we need Echo Filtration?
Filtering water is critical in today's world. We often hear about the toxic substances in water. Studies have found all kinds of toxins, drugs, metals, pesticides, etc. in drinking water. The Echo water machine has a very effective filter. It removes the pollutants but, leaves the minerals. The filter is designed to last up to 1000 gallons (roughly 1 year residential use). The Echo Water Ionizer will tell you "Please Change Filter" when needed. 50%-60% of fluoride is removed. If you want all of fluoride removed, they will provide you a fluoride specific filter at no additional charge. Tourmaline in the Echo filter emits Far Infrared energy into the water to support detoxification. With the light, fresh & clean taste you will enjoy drinking Echo water.
- What are the Benefits of hydrogen enriched water?
Everyone is talking about how free radicals are damaging our cells. What most people don't know is that many free radicals are beneficial to health. It is only the cell damaging (cytotoxic) radicals that we need to scavenge. Molecular hydrogen converts these cytotoxic (hydroxyl (HO*) radicals) into water molecules. An Echo Water machine converts municipal, well, or reverse osmosis water into Hydrogen Enriched Water. Once the oxidative burden is reduced in the cells of the body, the body can naturally produce glutathione to repair.
Echo Hydrogen Enriched Water has increased the performance of many athletes. Proper hydration is critical for performance. Echo Hydrogen-Enriched Water is the best water for athletes. Studies show that molecular hydrogen reduces lactate in the muscle that causes fatigue. Echo water is Hydrogen-Enriched. Athletes can perform significantly better and longer. Another huge benefit is recovery times are cut in half. When a person is properly hydrated with hydrogen-enriched Echo water, they perform at peak levels longer.
Detoxification & Weight Loss:
Water has been used in purification and cleansing from the beginning of time. After all, water is the "ultimate solvent". Water is used to remove toxins and waste. Echo water supports healthy cleansing and weight loss. When the toxins and wastes are flushed, the burden on the body is lessened. Echo Water can help to clean out the intestines and colon. This greatly increases health and immunity. People report that they feel more hydrated and lose weight with hydrogen-enriched Echo water, they experience more productive sleep, wake up more alert, have fewer allergy symptoms, and feel more energy throughout the day.
Immune System Boost:
No one enjoys getting sick because life comes to a screeching halt. The immune system and the digestive system are directly linked to hydration. Being properly hydrated is one of the best steps to increase your immune system and preventing sickness and disease. Remember, 60-75% of your body is water and it should be no surprise that the type of water you drink can directly influences the way you feel. Hydrogen enriched water is known for cleaning out intestines.
Intrinsic Energy and Frequencies:
Many people understand that energy and frequencies are all around us. Radio frequencies, cell phone frequencies, Infrared energies, EMF's, etc. There are good and bad energies and frequencies. The Echo system has hundreds of beneficial energies and frequencies. They can protect you from harmful frequencies and energies. Those that are intuitive can feel them immediately. Others say that the water just feels good to them. Those in energy medicine, Cranial Sacral Therapists, Reiki Masters, etc. love Echo water.
Increased Cognitive Function - Ghrelin:
Studies have shown that molecular hydrogen stimulates Ghrelin secretions. Ghrelin is known as the hunger hormone in the body. Ghrelin affects many things in the body including cognitive function, hunger, weight regulation, anti-inflammatory function. This is accomplished in the hippocampus, hypothalamus and the brain stem. Specific studies have shown that Hydrogen Enriched Water can be tremendously beneficial to neurologic pathologies like Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, and Autism due to ghrelin secretion stimulation. Most of us want to be smarter and benefit from improved cognitive abilities.
The Echo Difference
The Echo 9 machine produces the best hydrogen water available. The focus was to produce the highest amount of H2, with very little maintenance. Echo Water System has a robust filtration, an attractive look, ease of use, installation included, a Forever warranty, low monthly payments, and exceptional support and education. Understanding that most women want to preserve their counter space, the first convertible machine that could be used above counter or below counter was introduced. The Echo digital faucet was developed to allow the machine to be installed under sink and be controlled by the Echo digital faucet. Full installation is included at no extra charge.
The Echo Water machines are the most advanced and highest performing available. The Echo water machine can be on your counter or under your sink by adding the Echo Digital Faucet (pictured right). The Echo Digital Faucet enables you to keep your counter space and still control the machine below counter. It is available in Satin, Chrome, Oiled Bronze, and white to compliment any kitchen.
- High concentration of molecular hydrogen.
- Installation Included. (Incl. Hole drilled and electrical outlet under sink if needed.) Over 130 installers in USA.
- The Echo Forever Warranty covers parts, labor, and shipping both waysForever.
- Patented Anti-scale technology changes polarity of the electrodes every time the machine is used. It is impossible for calcium or scale buildup on the electrodes.
It is critical to stop calcium from bonding to the cathode because molecular hydrogen will no longer be dissolved. Other machines scale up in a matter of weeks and the benefits disappear. Because Echo water machines don't allow calcium buildup inside the electrolysis chamber, you can count on the H2 benefits forever. You can enjoy Echo water forever worry free.
