Learn more about Aquela 8.0 and hydrogen water.

Hydrogen water is water infused with hydrogen gas (H2), the first element on the periodic table. Hydrogen water is different from water containing hydrogen ion (H+), the amount of which is used as a measure of acidity.

The saturation concentration of hydrogen gas in water is about 1.6 ppm, 1.6 mg/liter or 0.8 mM under normal conditions. It is nearly two million times higher than hydrogen concentration in natural water, because little hydrogen gas is present in the atmosphere.

Have you ever wondered how much carbon dioxide is present in typical carbonated drinks? It is more than 4,400 ppm, 4,400 mg/liter or 100 mM. This tells you that hydrogen gas does not dissolve in water as much as carbon dioxide (CO2) does.

A biochemist and a Nobel Prize nominee, Dr. Garth Nicolson describes molecular hydrogen as "the best antioxidant of all" and suggests the potential benefits of molecular hydrogen in beauty, fitness and health. His group published a review article in 2016, pointing out several important facts concerning molecular hydrogen (4). He also spoke about the potential benefits of molecular hydrogen on YouTube (Thermo Medica), which we believe is one of the best educational materials for the public.

We are affiliated with researchers and clinical physicians conducting research into the potential benefits of molecular hydrogen. Please read H2 Library or contact us for more information on the status of the research.

Aquela 8.0 generates pure hydrogen gas and produces record-breaking 8 ppm super saturated hydrogen water without affecting the pH and/or taste of the source water.

Aquela 8.0 uses a patented technology (PCT application in January 2018). Water permeates through its sachet membrane and reacts with ingredients (aluminium powder and calcium hydroxide). Amazingly, nothing comes out of the sachet, except for pure hydrogen gas.

Half a liter of Aquela 8.0 hydrogen water contains 4 mg of molecular hydrogen. This is nearly 10 times more than the molecular hydrogen content in many hydrogen water products: i.e. 1.6 ppm, saturated hydrogen water in a 250 ml container contains 0.4 mg of molecular hydrogen.

Molecular hydrogen is administered through (a) oral ingestion of hydrogen gas enriched water, (b) inhalation of hydrogen gas, (c) intravenous injection of hydrogen gas enriched saline, and (d) transcutaneous application of hydrogen gas enriched water and other solutions.

Hydrogen gas inhalation is probably the preferred mode of molecular hydrogen administration in the clinical settings. However, the concentration of molecular hydrogen needs to be controlled between 2 – 4 %, otherwise, hydrogen gas inhalation may pose significant health and safety risks.

Aquela 8.0 and its predecessor, Aquela 7.0, have been used in clinical studies. We will continue our effort to elucidate the potential benefits of molecular hydrogen; however, we believe that Aquela 8.0 is the safest and easiest way to bring molecular hydrogen into your everyday life.

Further studies are required to develop the effective daily intake guideline for molecular hydrogen. If we follow Dr. Toru Ishibashi’s suggestion in his book on anti-ageing (2016), however, the daily intakes of 3.5 – 4 mg H2 (one bottle of Aquela 8.0) would be the ideal amount for health maintenance.

No side effects have been reported in more than 40 clinical studies on the potential benefits of molecular hydrogen. There are several explanations for this result. Please read H2 Library or contact us for more information.

Hydrogen gas is classified as a flammable gas. However, it does not ignite unless the temperature exceeds 527°C and its concentration in air exceeds 4% in volume. When dissolved in water, hydrogen gas has a rating of 0/0/0 for health /flammability /instability on the Hazardous Material Information System.

The speed of the chemical reaction in the sachet depends largely on water temperature. At room temperature (between 15 – 25°C), however, you can drink Aquela 8.0 hydrogen water after 24 hours.

Generally, hydrogen concentration is reduced from 8 ppm to approximately 4 ppm over a 1-hour period at room temperature after opening the bottle. A portion of hydrogen gas escapes when you transfer the water to a cup or glass. The same happens when you swirl or agitate the water after opening the bottle.

Hydrogen is the simplest and smallest element in the known universe. Because of this, hydrogen gas can penetrate through the wall of plastic containers and escape through the seal of aluminium cans and pouches.

Japanese scientists led research into the potential benefits of molecular hydrogen. Consequently, the market is flooded with hydrogen water products in both plastic and aluminium containers. In 2015, the Japanese Consumers Affairs Bureau tested the hydrogen concentration in those products, finding that they did not contain as much hydrogen as their label claimed.

A simple answer to the questions is, “Make hydrogen water and drink it as soon as practical.”

It is easy to make hydrogen water. You can dissolve hydrogen gas into water at a high pressure. Alternatively, you can produce hydrogen water by electrolysing water or by dissolving alkaline earth metal compounds. However, these processes turn the pH of water to alkaline and may produce chemical by-products.

Yes, you can chill, and add flavour to, Aquela 8.0 hydrogen water. However, this is only after enough hydrogen gas is produced – this means after 24 hours of putting the sachet in the bottle in most cases.

It is important to know that sugar and a number of other organic compounds prevent Aquela 8.0 from generating hydrogen gas, and that only beverages with a near-neutral pH are suitable for use with Aquela 8.0.

One example of such a beverage is tea. However, please remember that tea may stain the bottle, and that the tea has to be chilled to room temperature before use with Aquela 8.0.

Aquela 8.0 hydrogen water tastes just like normal water. It generates pure hydrogen gas, which is colourless, odourless and tasteless and affects neither taste nor pH of water.

Aquela 8.0 is registered as a food or nutrition supplement in the United Kingdom. It is manufactured at the state-of-the-art GMP facility and conforms to the stringent safety and quality guidelines in the United Kingdom. GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practice and are the practices required to conform to the guidelines for the manufacturing and sales of pharmaceutical and supplement products.

We will continue clinical studies in collaboration with researchers and clinical physicians around the world. It is our hope that, one day, we will be able to register Aquela 8.0 as a medicine.
