■THE SECRET OF HYDROGEN-RICH WATER
M.D., Water Institute, URL http://www.new-water.org
For every disease
there is a single key mechanism that
dominates all others. If one can find it and then think
one's way around it, one can control the disorder
( Lewis Thomas )
A single key mechanism
that dominates all others is
nothing but redox reaction. So that,if we can find a
way to control it, we can conquer the disorder. Water
rich in atomic as well as molecular hydrogen should
be an ultimate solution for it as far as my theory
In junior high school chemistry we learned that the redox reaction or
oxidation-reduction is the most universal, fundamental as well as important
The problem of life and death as well as health and sickness could, therefore,
be explained and demonstrated by the concept of redox reaction.
We can recap these concepts with a following analogy.
Copper(Cu) loses its glittery by oxidation and is restored by reduction.
In quite the same way, a cell unit(call it Cu) is damged (made sick)by
oxidation and is restored (cured) by reduction resulting in the production
prerequisite for every life form
||Oxidation of Cell
2Cu ＋ O2
||Reduction of oxidized(damaged)
CuO ＋ H2
→ Cu ＋ H2O
Water or H2O is the very product of redox reaction, i.e.a product
of reduction by Hydrogen and oxidation by Oxygen.
Therefore, it is only natural to say that everylife form, born in H2O
should be under the influence of redox reaction.
In short,oxidation brings it sickness and reduction restores it to health
It is quite clear from evolutionary record that life forms could have developed
in water, because it was an environment which provided them all the necessary
and enough conditions for birth and survival of them all.
3. Active Oxygen
Active oxygen species are considered to inactivate enzymes in the cells,
damage DNA and destroy lipid membrane which should cause every disease,
aging as well as cancer as far as the most recent medical research is concerned.
In other words,if we can succeed in preventing oxidative damage by active
oxygen species, we can control the disorder as far as my theory is concerned.
Then what is the most ideal countermeasure against active oxygen ?
It should be nothing but 'active hydrogen' as far as the logic is concerned.
Active hydrogen or atomic hydrogen is known to have strong reducing potential.
It is only natural to say that active oxygen species can be reduced or scavenged
to produce O2-, H2O2 and HO・
one after another to produce H2O as a result, as shown in the
|1. O2 ＋ e- → O2-
|2. O2- ＋ H・ ＋ H+ → H2O2
|3. H2O2 ＋ e-
→ HO・ ＋ HO-
|4. HO・ ＋ H・ → H2O
|5. HO- ＋ H+ → H2O
According to my concept, water can be classified into two kinds, i.e.hydrogen
poor and hydrogen rich water.
Natural water or 99.9 % of water found on the earth can be defined to be
hydrogen poor water because of hydrogen bond energy connecting hydrogen
with oxygen to make H2O.
It is a logic of mine that natural water, hydrogen poor water, can't be
enough to reduce or scavenge active oxygen species, which should have compelled
us mankind to develop a procedure with which we can fight against sickness
being brought as the result of oxidative damage by active oxygens.
In other words, human medicine should be a kind of fiction based and developed
on our inevitable intake of natural water or hydrogen poor water.
On the contrary, we could easily be free from sickness when we depend on
hydrogen rich water which can be enough to scavenge active oxygen species.
6 Hydrogen Rich Water
It is known that magnesium reacts with water to produce hydrogen gas when
it is heated.
We confirmed,however, that magnesium produces hydrogen gas even in water
with room temperature which could be demonstrateed by Portable Hydrogen
Detector developed by ourselves being explained in the following chemical
||Mg ＋ 2H2O
＋ 2H・ → Mg(OH)2
Active hydrogen in Hydrogen
Rich Water binds with active oxygens to produce H2O. Molecular
hydrogen in Hydrogen Rich Water can be splitted to atomic hydrogen by
hydrogenase in our body being implied by R.Happe in his paper
'・・・ hydrogenases are enzymes
that can reversibly split molecular hydrogen.
・・・ Ni/Fe hydrogenases are
among the oldest enzymes ( 3.8 billion years old ),demonstrating early that
life forms had developed an effective way to activate molecular hydrogen
at ambient temperature and pH.
(BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITION OF HYDROGEN ; NATURE,385,126,1997).
7 Hydrogen Producing Mineral( HPM )
'Hydrogen Rich Water' can easily be obtained by utilysing the reaction
of water with magnesium, hydrogen producing mineral, whose preparation
is named'HPM stick' and is being presented by us for general use.
Magnesium oxide has long been used in medicine as a antacid and laxative.
Quite a new aspect of the mineral, producing ability of hydrogen to scavenge
active oxygens has been clarified now for the first time by us, I'm sure.
