Hydrogen-rich water is really just the regular water that you drink. The only difference is that it contains more hydrogen. Experts believe that the addition of hydrogen gas can help your body fight free radicals and therefore, it can increase your energy levels, and slows down the aging process.
Just like your regular water, hydrogen-rich water has no nutritional value; it also contains no calories, carbohydrates fat, or protein. However, depending on the source the vitamin and mineral content varies. Hydrogen-rich water may contains different levels of naturally occurring or added sodium sulfate, potassium, magnesium sulfate, calcium carbonate, vitamin C, and vitamin A. Regardless though, it is the infused hydrogen gas that is of topical importance.
