Is MORE hydrogen (HydrOxy) better?

It’s important to note that MORE is NOT better and that QUALITY is more important than QUANTITY.

First, therapeutic effects can be had with 2% hydrogen in the intake breath.(most scientific studies use 2%) 

Second, once the blood is saturated with hydrogen, you breathe OUT as much as you breath in, so any ‘extra’ is irrelevant and wasted.

Third, worse than wasted, because mixtures greater than 4% hydrogen in the intake breath are potentially EXPLOSIVE.  

Why is it that I seem to be the only one pointing this out?

So the ‘intake breath’ mixture containing hydrogen should never exceed 4% hydrogen by volume.

Therefore MORE is NOT better.  

What needs to happen, for maximum therapeutic benefit (when breathing), is the gas volume adjusted so that you are getting at least 2% hydrogen and maximum 4%.

AND, since it takes about 15 minutes for a body to fully saturate with hydrogen, and about 15 minutes for levels to drop once breathing hydrogen stops, it’s our opinion that multiple breathing times during the day is more efficient and therapeutic than a single long session.

That said, when bubbling water for drinking or bath, more is better, because you want to infuse the water with HydrOxy as quickly as possible and maintain high levels in the water as your skin soaks it up.

The next thing to consider is QUALITY of the gas.

Hydrogen alone is good, but when you add ExW (using HydrOxy), it further improves therapeutic benefit because it adds bio-available ENERGY to the body.

Bodies that are chronically dehydrated and sick (or wounded) have compromised energy generation systems and depleted energy stores.

ExW is a negative (electron-rich) plasma form of water that DIRECTLY gives the body energy to heal.

All that said, the AquaCure is capable of 75 LPH (or 1250 mLPM).  

I currently control the gas output (throttle it down) to a safe breathing level by using a very lean electrolyte solution.

If people want more volume of HydrOxy, (like for bathing application) they can add more lye.  

But if they do increase the gas output, they need to use a valve (included with every AquaCure) to restrict the gas flow back to safe breathing levels.

My new AquaCure (which I’ll be selling soon) has a user-friendly 0-100% gas adjustment on the front, so gas volume can be adjusted for an infant, to an adult, to full production volume level to quickly infuse a bath.


Now, as per the question about volume of gas to breathe.

The way the statement and questions are worded is very confusing to me because the ‘measurements’ and references are incomplete and taken out of context. 

The bottom line is that any air that has greater concentration than 4% hydrogen is potentially EXPLOSIVE and this is not made clear by manufacturer’s like Vital Reaction.

Our original AquaCure did the same thing that MOST manufacturer’s do, simply limit the MAXIMUM gas production to something reasonably safe for an adult to breathe. 

In our case, we did it by putting only 1 ounce of lye into the machine, so it couldn’t produce more than about 18 liters per hour (L/h) of HydrOxy gas (12 L/h of hydrogen and 6 L/h of oxygen).

So we COULD (for the most part) just have people breathe 100% of the gas volume coming out of the original AquaCure… because it was limited to 12 L/h of hydrogen.

BUT, like many others, this was TOO MUCH hydrogen, if a small person was breathing it.

So, unlike ‘everyone else’, the AquaCure actually had a way to SAFELY cut down (reduce) the gas volume… 

Using the ‘restriction valve’ on the torch handle.

If you try this with most of the ‘other’ manufacturer’s machines, the internal pressure will rise dramatically and either vent off excess gas or explode.

But this method of restricting the gas output, while possible, was inconvenient, because unless tedious gas volume measurements were done, the gas volume was just being ‘guessed at’ by watching the bubble flow.

We are all about safety, user-friendliness and convenience.

So with the AquaCure Model 50 we’ve done something few have yet done.  We added electronic gas volume adjustment.  

So it becomes REALLY EASY to accurately adjust the gas output for safe breathing… For any sized person.

ONLY breathing requires this gas volume reduction.  For all other applications / protocols, it’s more advantageous to have higher gas production.

So the AquaCure Model 50 now has a full 100+ grams of lye (4 ounces) and it’s 100% gas production is increased to 50 L/h.  

This gives more than adequate gas production for all protocols and the gas volume can be accurately reduced (for breathing) at the touch of a button.

Note that we typically report our gas production with electrolyzer ‘industry standard’ of Liters per hour, established decades ago.  

However, because the uneducated and noncompliant manufacturer’s now often use measurements like milliliters per minute (mL/m), I provide those measurements too, so people can try to compare apples to apples.

Note that HydrOxy is only 2/3 hydrogen, so you also need to factor that in when comparing HydrOxy gas production to a ‘pure’ hydrogen generating machine, like the Vital Reaction.

And the Vital Reaction (like ALL pure hydrogen technologies) does NOT and cannot generate ExW.

Most don’t even know what ExW is…

Or how ExW is ‘vital’ to helping the body heal and maintain health. 

To directly answer the question.

The gas production of the AquaCure has only 66% hydrogen, so is NOT directly comparable to the Vital Reaction gas production, which is 100% hydrogen.

The AquaCure is DESIGNED to keep you SAFE with near the MAXIMUM (4%) of hydrogen in the intake breath.

So, NO, we do NOT recommend increasing the AquaCure gas production for breathing, beyond the math given in the Operation Manual.  (max 40% duty cycle for a full grown and large adult) which would be about 20 L/h of gas, (which is about 13 L/h of hydrogen and 7 L/h of oxygen).

So any manufacturer who is having you breath more than 13 L/h of hydrogen is having you breath a potentially explosive mixture. 

That said… Many people DO breath more than 13 L/h of hydrogen and that’s OK as far as ‘toxicity’ goes, because the gas is not toxic.

But they need to have ‘informed consent’.  A full understanding of the risk that they are taking… Because the gas is potentially explosive.

Particularly because (with very few exceptions) there is NO GOOD REASON to breath more than a 4% mixture of hydrogen.

When the blood becomes saturated with hydrogen (takes about 10 – 15 minutes), you breathe OUT almost as much hydrogen as you breathe IN.

And MOST of the (1,000+) scientific studies are showing therapeutic benefits at 2% hydrogen in the intake breath…

So 4% is already double that.
