Aquavolta® H2 Turbo hydrogen booster for at home and on the go

For many years it was considered irrefutable that activated water only retains its negative redox potential and thus its electron wealth for a few hours to days.

But when it was discovered that dissolved hydrogen was the decisive factor for the antioxidant effect, an industry developed that pressed hydrogen at high pressure into multi-layered water bags, where the content could be maintained for several months. However, such a bag with 0,2 liters of hydrogen water costs around €4 and also causes major waste problems.
We designed the AquaVolta® H2 Turbo Hydrogen Booster so that you don't have to rely on a single type of water.

You can also fill the BPE-free polycarbonate container with your favorite mineral water. It is even possible to unscrew the polycarbonate container and screw on a mineral water bottle with a 30 mm thread (plastic bottles only!) instead. Since bottles do not have pressure equalization holes, this method is always second choice.

Unboxing Aquavolta Turbo Hydrogen Booster V2.0

What is a hydrogen booster or an HRW generator?

  • The brand term Aquavolta® is made up of the Latin term for water (aqua) and the name of the battery's inventor, Alessandro Volta. It stands for electro-activated water.
  • Originally in Germany people spoke of electrolyte water, later “active water”. In the English-speaking world it is often referred to as “reduced”, “ionized” or “hydrogen-rich” water.
  • The characteristic of AquaVolta® is that it has a negative electrical voltage relative to a measuring electrode, a so-called negative redox potential.
  • The lower the redox potential, the more willing the water is to give up electrons. This willingness doubles for every 0,018 volts (18 millivolts) lower redox potential. AquaVolta® water has a redox potential that is 400 to 800 millivolts lower than tap water or bottled mineral water.
  • Due to its high willingness to release electrons, AquaVolta® is also known as antioxidant water. It is not only used by doctors for therapy, but is also establishing itself as a modern everyday drink due to its pleasant taste
  • From today's scientific perspective, the content of dissolved hydrogen gas ("dissolved hydrogen" or dH2) is considered to be primarily responsible for the antioxidant power of AquaVolta®. The AquaVolta® H2 Turbo was developed to reinforce this. It reflects the state of the art in 2021.

From the redox potential to measuring the dissolved hydrogen in active water

In the past, only the redox potential was measured to determine the antioxidant effect of activated water. But this is a very imprecise and relative value because the redox potential depends not only on the dissolved hydrogen, but also on the different redox potentials of the various substances dissolved in the water, e.g. B. Minerals are influenced. (see also the video about baby milk powder and water selection)

After the role of hydrogen was recognized as important, a supposed hydrogen measuring device came onto the market in Japan (Trustlex ENH 1000), which calculates a dissolved hydrogen content from the measured redox potential using an experience-based conversion factor of approx. (-)2,14 wanted to derive. However, this factor has been criticized by numerous experts and Trustlex itself admits that the device does not work properly.

AquaVolta Hydrogen Booster Water Activator - Hydrogen measurement with H2 Blue Kit drops

Measurement | Hydrogen content | with the H2 Blue Kit® Test drops with the predecessor hydrogen booster

1 drop of the H2 Blue Kit® is currently internationally recognized as evidence of 100 ppb (0,1 ppm) of dissolved hydrogen in water.

  1. In the picture (middle) you can see the normal container of the hydrogen booster, which was filled with 0,2 l tap water (Munich) and 10 drops of the H2 Blue Kit ® reagent solution.
  2. After 25 seconds of operation, the solution decolorized and thus detected dissolved hydrogen.
  3. In the 7 minute operating level, the hydrogen booster reached 1,7 ppm with the same tap water.
    This corresponds to a supersaturation of 0,1 ppm.

Testing the H2 content with the blue test drops is often not done correctly, even if the videos show great values

In the following 2 customer videos, the conservative performance values ​​we specified were met, but a lot more would have been possible if Jörg hadn't “mixed” so wildly with his mixer during the titration test. There would easily be another 10-20 drops more if he hadn't “mixed” it like that. Maybe there will be an ultimate video from him, which we would be very happy about, even though the two videos of course make us very proud and we are very grateful to him.

Procedure for testing the molecular hydrogen content with the H2 blue® kit

H2 Blue Kit hydrogen test liquid by titration method practice

The molecular hydrogen content test with the H2 Blue® Kit is carried out immediately after production. To do this, carefully fill a 6 ml water sample into the measuring cup and add a drop of the blue measuring liquid. Each drop that discolors represents 0,1 ppm (=100 ppb) of dissolved hydrogen gas. If a drop no longer discolors itself, you can stir gently.

If the liquid still does not change color, the last drop added to the water no longer counts. Water under normal atmospheric pressure can contain up to 1,6 ppm hydrogen gas (full saturation). With the AquaVolta® hydrogen booster you can also produce supersaturated water with over 6 ppm. However, this falls back to full saturation within a few minutes when the sample comes into contact with the normal atmosphere. If you want a lot of hydrogen, you have to drink it quickly.

Hydrogen water – Don’t just drink it! | recommendations

  • Drink up to 0,3 l per 10 kg of body weight daily. Correspondingly more at high temperatures and/or heavy physical exertion. Use water that is as alkaline as possible. One of the classic ones would be ideal AquaVolta® water ionizer, which already prepares filtered alkaline activated water that already contains 0,6 to 1,2 ppm hydrogen or, better yet, the new one Aquavolta® H2 Rocket, which achieves outstanding values ​​between 3 and 5 ppm. The hydrogen booster can then store additional hydrogen in the water thanks to its high-pressure technology, making it suitable for placing food in:
  • Soak fruits, salads, cut flowers, raw eggs, fish, meat and vegetables in fresh hydrogen water for 15-30 minutes. Such foods refresh themselves by absorbing hydrogen, which even passes through eggshells. The penetration of hydrogen reduces the redox potential of the food, which, for example, the food tester Prof. Dr. Manfred Hoffmann considers it to be a sign of higher food quality.
  • Mix milk powder, diet powder, fitness powder etc. with hydrogen water. Dissolve mineral and vitamin mixtures in it. The redox potential also decreases favorably due to the role of dissolved hydrogen.
  • Buy juice concentrates – if possible with an organic seal. This is what you do No more dragging and environmental pollution from beverage packaging. No manufacturer on the market can yet supply juices with better redox potential. Please refer: Asenbaum, KH, Electroactivated Water, Munich 2016, p. 43 ff.
  • Mix alcoholic drinks and cocktails with hydrogen water. They become milder and the taste comes into its own better. Make ice cubes from hydrogen water.
  • After drinking alcohol, drink 2 glasses in the evening and 2 glasses the next morning on an empty stomach.
  • Give your pets (dogs, cats…) hydrogen-rich water to drink and watch the positive changes in coat and overall health.

Hydrogen Water – The New Bar for Drinking | Hydrogen Rich

When it comes to a device for on the go, one thing is clear: there is no point in making water more energy-rich with hydrogen if it does not meet the demanding requirements for drinking water.

That's why we have the H2 Turbo Hydrogen booster designed so that, unlike a stationary water ionizer, it does not rely on a single type of water. If you don't want to trust existing tap water, you can use any trustworthy bottled water and even water from a reverse osmosis system (RO water).

Thanks to the integrated bottle adapter, you can also ionize the water directly in the plastic mineral water bottle and enrich it with hydrogen, but we do not recommend this as it shortens the lifespan of the electrolysis cell.

Only restriction:

The water must not contain carbon dioxide. Otherwise the overall gas pressure will increase too much.

    The Aquavolta® H2 Turbo 2.0 Hydrogen Booster | Portable H2 Generator | 4+ ppm H2 content:

    After a closer look, this device is the only one that is really worth buying!

    The 5 minute program produces enough hydrogen to save up to 15 minutes per 250ml! The 10 minute program is simply brilliant if you need the extra dose of H2! I have tried 3 H2 devices (2 are still here, this beauty and the Lourdes hydrogen generator (for large amounts of H2 water)! In my opinion, the cheaper devices are not really worth it. Now for the booster; the thing actually runs continuously, is charged and continues to run, there is nothing more to say, if you want to know the exact values, you can find enough videos from Aquacentrum on YouTube! I only tested the redox potential of my different waters and am very happy with the result of -400 mV compared to tap water. I'll keep it short, great seller, great product, fantastic results!

    2 devices were purchased and these will not be the last from Aquacentrum.

    Peace ️

  2. Marcel Hilkene -

    I've had the booster for over half a year now and I'm absolutely thrilled with it. However, it also has very annoying weaknesses, which is why I can't give it 5 stars. But I'll just start.


    The device is manufactured to a very high quality. The pressure equalization cover does its job and never let me down. The battery also lasts a long time and can be charged quickly and the device can also be operated! What's amazing is that the booster achieves really great ppm values ​​(5 to even 5 ppm in 6 minutes without any problems) and the water is incredibly soft afterwards. You really have the feeling that the whole body is being suffused. It just feels good! I drink it every day and think that the topic of hydrogen should be much more widespread. You can also screw PET bottles onto it. I would never give it back and am even considering buying a second one! What has to be positively highlighted is the very fast and friendly support from Grüne Pearls and the Aquacentrum. They're all really nice, committed people who know what they're doing!


    The filling hole is very small. You have to pour the water precisely. Sooner or later you'll make a mess. What also bothers me is that the USB C charging socket and the power button are simply unprotected on the station without a rubber cover or anything. If you spill something while pouring, unfortunately water can get in here. The same thing sometimes happens when you open the lid after boosting. Due to the pressure, 1 2 3 drops may flow down the bottle and quickly reach the charging socket. Unfortunately, in my opinion, this is a faulty design and at this high price you really expect a different solution (sorry, no offense meant). The whole thing makes pouring and opening a little complicated. The cylinder can start to leak after a few months, but you get top service here and with the 2.0 version you also get replacement cylinders. Not so wild

    Conclusion and wishes/ideas:

    All in all, I am incredibly happy to have purchased this device. It has become my daily companion and I save on follow-up costs, such as new cartridges every 6 months. You buy the device once and you're done. You could provide a rubber cover for the USB port. It doesn't cost anything. Or you can just get creative yourself. The other performance of the device is great! What would also be cool if at some point there were cylinders that contained, for example, half a liter.
    All in all, I would buy the device again and again, despite the small defects mentioned. Because these have no influence on the power of the booster. Simply great and, in my opinion, a must-have kitchen appliance alongside a reverse osmosis system

    Hello dear AQUACENTRUM,
    I have been drinking reverse osmosis water for over 10 years. But this booster has actually revolutionized my drinking behavior. I was skeptical at first because of the price, but it was worth it. Whenever I drink hydrogen, I feel like my body is absorbing it and healing me from within. It flows through the body and the cells. It just puts you in a good mood! I believe this is the best device in the entire water industry and you don't really need anything else (I just assume filtered clean water). I drink it every day and it just does me good. Thank you for everything!
    Kind regards HN

  6. Mark Eisner -

    Hello Yasin, I just tested the booster. Now everything is tight again. I didn't think the plastic container was the cause. You can't see anything in the old container.
    Thank you very much for your quick help
    Now there's energy water again ‍♂️☀️
    Wish you a good time

  7. Manfred B -

    Hello Mr Akgün,
    Thank you very much, I was totally surprised on Friday. I think that's because of the positive change :-).
    We are already testing diligently and are of course happy to recommend you. Do you have any flyers?
    we can display it in our salon?
    I wish you a nice and relaxing weekend
    have a good time, best regards
    Manfred B

  8. Jörg -

    Hey, you have developed such an ingenious device, the H2 Turbo is great. I'm already at 32x production within 1 week with the very first battery charge and the LED is only now showing red. This is awesome. You yourself write from a maximum of 18 (manual) to 24 (website) loads, which I have already far exceeded

    Addendum: .. I've already increased the number to 32x... now it shows red after it started blue. 32 x 5 minutes = 160 minutes running time is insane. I'm curious to see how cycles 2 and 3 perform. Then I have an average value from practice, since I only use the device 4 times a day and even energy is lost in standby within 7-8 days.

    Dear Yasin,
    I would like to order another hydrogen generator at a special price! The device is simply brilliant! Will be a birthday present. I'm currently influencing my entire circle of friends 😉 Thank you for the great input and the lots of helpful data on the site.
    Kind regards to Munich

    Hello Yasin,
    I have to write to you again now because I'm thrilled.
    Once because I received the device today - SUPER SERVICE
    Because the device arrived in high quality packaging (I don't mean the outer packaging but the booster packaging itself)) -SUPER
    Apparently a beautiful device.
    The manuals are awesome - clear, clearly structured, self-explanatory, everything is easy to read and understandable in excellent paper quality.
    In terms of quality, this is close to Apple or even better.
    I will now make the first preparations and put the device into operation tomorrow.
    I will make the transfer next week, just after Christmas.
    So thank you again for the really excellent service and quality
    A merry Christmas for you and your team

    Hello Mr Akgün,
    “A great introduction, best listened to several times: Download Interview Dr. med. Mag. Ryke Geerd Hamer, 1995.mp3”
    I listened to the interview. Thanks for the hint. I saved the page directly under favorites.
    In the last 3 years I have started to put my health and that of my family into my own hands and to get away from the profit-hungry doctors and the pharmaceutical lobby.
    I'm always looking for (natural) alternatives if we do get sick, but our biggest goal is and remains maintaining our health. Especially reports and personal experiences like Dr. Hamer describes it, are worth their weight in gold and often confirm to me what I have already picked up elsewhere.
    This is why I came across your ionizers and now use the H2 Turbo regularly for prevention.
    Unfortunately, my child is also affected by the useless C measures of the past 3 years. Keeping your distance at school, constantly washing your hands, wearing a mask and constant testing at school did not allow the immune system to develop as it needed to. To help my child with coughs and colds, I thought of an inhaler. So there's nothing acute that makes me want to use the inhaler, more for prevention.
    Sebastian S.

    I still prefer to drink the H2 TURBO hydrogen water! I found the experiment with frozen and thawed water interesting - the hydrogen bubbles are then ultra-fine, like fog. A water book inspired me.

    Hello Yasin,
    I myself am the business card for your H2TBs.
    I once weighed 89kg – an unprecedented high – and had to repeatedly struggle with stomach/intestinal problems. In order to get my stomach/intestinal problems under control, I wanted to get back to my ideal weight of 80kg. Unfortunately I only got down to 84kg. That was the end.
    Then I came across your H2TB. When I diligently drank my 2,75 - 3,00 liters of H2 water every day and also changed my diet, another 6kg were gone within a short time. I suddenly weighed 78kg. At some point my metabolism must have kicked in and was stimulated like it used to be. Since then I have eaten whatever I want and my weight has remained constant at 78kg.
    I always drink H2 water before, between and after meals. The most important thing when changing my diet, the sugar - i.e. all the sweet stuff - I replaced with H2 water. If the body only gets the 12 H molecules from the sugar, then it gets the good H2 water in return.
    Since then I have felt good, healthy and alive. People who know me immediately see the change and ask me how I managed to look so vibrant, good and healthy. That's where you and Mr. Assenbaum always come into play with the H2TB. I simply pass on your knowledge and tell you what I have learned from you, from your videos and books. Because of the trust in me and my wife, the interest in those around me is of course immediately there. My wife, a skeptic, also played a big part in recommending the H2TB. She is very convinced of your product and drinks a lot more water every day than she did before. But you also have to admit that the H2 water also tastes very soft and really tasty. In our family we drink a lot of water. Everyone drinks their own amount according to the formula recommended by Mr. Asenbaum: body weight / 10 = result * 0,34 = amount to drink in liters
    Best regards,
    Bumin K.

    Hello dear Yasin!
    With the new replacement bottle (Nano), the Nano seals.
    The H2 Turbo is really great!!! In 5 minutes the redox potential is -230mV almost the same as H2 Nano in 10 minutes!!!
    With the shaking H2 Turbo has cca. 4 ppm hydrogen. The battery lasts forever.
    As always TOP service.
    Kind regards from Slovenia

    Dear Yasin,
    I hope it's okay if we're on first name terms. I've seen so many videos with you that it somehow seems more familiar to me 😉
    Thursday we received our H2Turbo hydrogen generator. What a great device! It's been running almost in a loop since that day. It feels like we only drink hydrogen water. Thank you very much for the great invention and for your enthusiasm for this topic, which is evident in every video! 🙂

  21. Q. Schuster -

    Good morning Mr. Akgün, thank you for the tip.
    Here is a short report.
    This morning I produced hydrogen water for the first time, everything worked wonderfully, bubbles can be seen, blue and purple mode worked perfectly. Then I selected purple mode and then drank the water. Tastes very soft and pleasant (I use reverse osmosis water)
    Then I filled it up again for the next time, but didn't press the button to produce yet.
    Now I wanted to test it again with the charging cable. I took the original charging cable that came with it and charged it. After 3 minutes it went from red to green. Then I took another charging cable (from the smartphone) and charged it with that. At first it was red, but after a short time, maybe 2 minutes, it changed to green again. I now let it charge for 2 hours despite the green light.
    In any case, the device works and I am very grateful for it. Since I don't drive a car, but almost always cycle (40km to work and back every day), I naturally need more water. I'll share more experiences little by little.
    Thank you again for your kind acknowledgment that you sent me the device as a new device even though I had ordered a returner. I had already spoken to your sister about this on Friday.
    Warm greetings from Dresden.
    Q. Schuster
    PS: the topic of water is so interesting and vital (I only came across it by chance at the end of April 2022). Since then I have read and informed myself about it regularly. Thank you also for your and Mr. Asenbaum's work on various topics in the form of videos, documents, etc. to provide information. I'm grateful that there are still some people who !!really!! educate people and not lie to people like the industry does.
    But the greatest thanks go to God, who created everything so wonderfully, especially water, so that we can exist and live.

    The water is easy to drink, I can't keep up with the production 🙂
    After two weeks, the number of times I went to the toilet was reduced - my slightly damaged prostate liked that.
    Actually weight loss too, as I wanted to eat a lot less over the two weeks.
    Two weeks of fasting without having planned it beforehand, the body took over.

    Hello Mr. Mayr,
    Thank you for your important experiences. If the lid is closed and there was water in it beforehand, it won't dry out. And if the membrane dries out, that's not a problem, it just needs 24 hours of soaking time.
    Your experiences are normal, it is not a placebo effect.
    There are a lot of studies in this area:
    The following is a collection of studies about H2 water:
    And an even bigger one:
    And an older one:
    But it has little to do with acid-base balance, that's not a very interesting area, even though everyone talks about it, including us for over 10 years, alkaline water from an electric ionizer has always had H2 gas as an antioxidant gas , for this reason. We breathe out a lot of CO2 gas every day, which is more like alienation, see also BREATHE. | Joe DiStefano | TEDxLugano:
    But nonetheless, alkaline water tastes better, and it certainly won't do any harm if you make the water alkaline first and concentrate the "good" minerals...
    Thank you for your kind words, they motivate me a lot
    I will continue
    All the best
    Kind regards
    Yours, Yasin Akgün

    Dear Mr. Akgün,
    Maybe you remember my visit to get the booster. Since I now use an ionizer, I planned to use the booster for my stay in Austria.
    I'm currently leaving it with a light water level to prevent drying out. Is that OK?
    An experience report on the subject of ionizers:
    I use a very cheap option because I'm always away for longer periods of time. But I notice significant positive changes after about 4 weeks:
    – Weight loss
    – clear contours on the face
    – fewer headaches, less severe
    – entire body more defined
    – better general health
    According to your documents, this is because fewer acids have to be deposited in the body - are these observations realistic or just a placebo effect?
    If there is no placebo effect, you are welcome to include my observations in your product information. For background information: I use water with approx. pH9,8, also for coffee, for example
    With my simple device I can only run the water very slowly to achieve this high value. But that doesn't matter.
    Overall, the information you provided was the most comprehensive and coherent I could find. Actually advertising through information.
    With kind regards,
    Christian M.

    /// H2 can initiate healing processes.///
    Hardly for me. I have my health fully under control. I'm 72 now and in great shape
    (still running and strength training regularly). I already have the cleansing process for my body
    “infested” many years ago and for many years. Nothing works in this area anymore.
    But I still incorporate many healthy elements into my life (including hydrogen water). The distance from health to illness can be increased endlessly.
    As a healthy person, I simply need less of some things (e.g. H2 water),
    my body reacts quickly if something is too much or too little. He tells me what I need = perfect.
    This is no longer a theory for me, but a reality
    Best regards,

    Previous message via email:
    short report: already 22 runs with one battery charge = almost 2 hours!
    and it's not empty yet. The battery on the old booster was already dead
    7 passes empty. But now I have to stop again after two and a half minutes,
    Because after 5 minutes it becomes too strong = you can feel it in your stomach.
    I remember: with the old booster I initially boosted for 15 minutes. Afterwards I had diarrhea for 2 days
    Best regards,

FAQ Hydrogen Water & H2 Turbo

FAQ's Radio Frequency

> FAQs: New Medicine & Biology

FAQ Hydrogen Water & H2 Turbo

1. How do I optimally use the H2 Turbo Booster to achieve high hydrogen levels in the treated water?

  1. Fill the water to just below the lid to the start of the thread, after the taper begins, close it and start the electrolysis.
  2. After a total run time of 5 minutes you can expect over 3-4 ppm of molecularly dissolved hydrogen.
  3. The water can stand for up to 1 hour before being consumed.
  4. Refill soon after drinking and start the 5 minute electrolysis process again.
  5. Repeat from step 1 if necessary.

2. How do I store the H2 Turbo Booster when not in use?

Daily use and short-term storage

For daily use and shorter breaks in use, please note the following:

  • Under a week: If the device is not being used for less than a week, it can be stored empty and with the lid closed.
  • Prepare overnight: Optionally, you can fill the device completely overnight, start the electrolysis and then let the electrolysis run again for 5 minutes the next morning before drinking or drink directly.
  • Longer than 12 hours: If the device is left for more than 12 hours but less than a week, it should preferably be stored without water and with the lid closed.

If the membrane dries out, this will not harm its function. It simply needs to be soaked again, similar to the first time you used it, to make the device fully usable again.

3. Is the H2 Turbo Booster suitable for all types of water?

Yes, the H2 Turbo Booster is suitable for all types of water, including tap, reverse osmosis and distilled water. It is important that the water does not contain carbon dioxide, otherwise the overall gas pressure could increase too much.

4. What material are the electrodes used made of?

The electrodes are made of titanium and coated with platinum. The electrode at the top, which is in contact with the water, breaks down calcium, definitely does not break down. Therefore, depending on usage, you have to descale the device with citric acid every 4-12 weeks

5. What should I do if the booster is leaking?

1. Typical cause: Checking the leak

  • Locating the Leak: First, determine where the leak is occurring. Pay particular attention to the connection between the production vessel and the generator.
    Replacing the container: If the leak is detected at this connection point, immediately replace the production container with one of the replacement containers provided.

2. Very rare cause: Focused inspection of the seal

  • Targeted inspection: Only inspect the generator seal thoroughly if a leak is detected or you suspect a defect. Since a seal failure is very rare, routine replacement is usually not necessary.
  • Targeted replacement: Only replace the seal if actual damage is evident. If there is a defect in the seal, use the supplied replacement seal for replacement. Make sure that the new seal is inserted correctly to ensure optimal functionality of the booster.

If you have any further problems, contact the Aquacentrum: If none of the solutions help, contact the manufacturer directly by email at or call the H2 Turbo Booster Hotline: +4989416117992

6. Why are 4 replacement bottles or pressure pistons included in the package?

  • The replacement bottles included are reserve high-pressure bottles. Over time, a bottle can become leaky, which can be recognized by water leaking between the bottle and the H2 generator.
  • Bottles can also get scratches. The replacement bottles ensure uninterrupted use of the H2 Turbo Booster.

7. How and why do I clean the Tritan container & the electrodes of the H2 Turbo Booster if there are limescale deposits?

Regular cleaning is necessary to remove limescale deposits and maintain the device's optimal bubble performance. Visible traces of limescale or a decreasing bubble performance are signs that cleaning is necessary.

Depending on the usage intervals and, above all, the mineral content of the source water used, you should descale the H2 Turbo Booster and pressure piston approximately every 1 to 3 months.

  • Prepare cleaning solution: Dissolve 1 teaspoon of citric acid in water and pour this solution into the Tritan container. The filling quantity should be exactly up to the taper of the container, not above it. The water should not touch the lid by approximately 5mm or more
  • Start the cleaning process: Close the screw cap and allow the citric acid solution to work for 30 minutes.
  • If the bladder performance decreases, you can carry out descaling with activated electrolysis. Start the 5-minute program after adding the citric acid solution and let the solution sit for 30 minutes.
  • Rinse thoroughly: Rinse the container with lid and the electrode several times with warm water.

8. How do I perform a thorough cleaning of the safety valve in the lid?

Fill the container and start the program: Fill the container to the brim with water, screw on the lid and run the 10-minute program. During this process, drops of water will appear on the lid, which will flush the safety valve in the lid.

9. Why doesn't the LED on the H2 Turbo Booster light up?

1. Checking the battery:

  • Check whether the booster battery is fully charged. If the battery is empty, connect the booster with the included USB-C cable to charge it. Wait until charging is complete and then check again if the LED is on.

2. Checking the charging accessories:

  • Check whether there may be a defect in the charging cable or power supply. Test charging with a different USB-C cable and power adapter to see if that resolves the issue.
  • Note: Avoid using fast charging power adapters or fast charging USB-C cables as they may be incompatible with the booster and affect functionality.
  • Final step: If the LED still does not light after checking the battery and charging accessories, there may be a deeper technical problem. For further assistance, contact customer service at or use the hotline: +4989416117992.

10. Can the H2 generator also be used with larger bottles?

Yes, but there are specific instructions for this. To use the booster with a plastic bottle (note: glass bottles are not allowed due to possible uncontrolled pressure build-up), follow these steps:

    1. Screw the included adapter onto the bottle.
    2. Fill the bottle to the brim with water.
    3. Screw the booster onto the bottle as a “lid” and place it on the H2 Turbo Booster.
    4. Allow the device to run for approximately 10-15 minutes per pint of water. Be careful not to build up excessive pressure. Feel the pressure regularly to ensure it is comparable to the pressure in bicycle tires.
    5. For efficiency and simplicity, it is recommended to use the included 250ml pressure piston with pressure relief valve.

11. What follow-up costs arise when using the H2 Turbo Booster?

There are minimal follow-up costs when using our product. These are limited to purchasing citric acid, which is needed every 4 to 12 weeks for descaling. A teaspoon citric acid per cleaning process is sufficient. There are no further costs, such as maintenance or spare parts.

12. What to do if the H2 Turbo Booster does not work or develops no or fewer bubbles?

1. Checking the battery:

  • Make sure the booster battery is fully charged. If the battery is empty, please charge it with the included USB-C cable.

2. Checking the charging accessories:

  • Check if there is a problem with the charging cable or power adapter. Try charging the device with a different USB-C cable and power adapter.
  • Note: Do not use a fast charging power adapter or a fast charging USB-C cable as they may not be compatible.

3. Limescale deposits:

  • Check the booster for limescale deposits. Limescale can affect H2 bubble formation during electrolysis and reduce efficiency.
  • If limescale affects the H2 bubble formation, use citric acid to descale the booster. You can find the exact instructions in our descaling FAQ. This step is crucial to restoring the device to optimal function.

If these steps did not resolve the issue, it could indicate a deeper technical issue. In this case, we recommend contacting customer service for further assistance.

13. How long does the H2 Turbo Booster battery last and how is it charged?

  • The H2 Turbo Booster's battery has a capacity of 1500mAh and allows for a running time of around 120 minutes, which is equivalent to producing around 6 liters of hydrogen water with one battery charge.
  • The booster is charged via a USB-C cable and can also be operated directly from the USB-C power supply.
  • Charging time is approximately 180 minutes. Fast charging is not allowed to protect battery life.

14. Do I need special bottles to transport the treated water?

You can pour the treated H2 water into any bottle. Our product is equipped with a bottle adapter that gives you the freedom to use any type of plastic bottle of your choice. For optimal use, we recommend transporting the water in a separate bottle and using the H2 Turbo as a “smart” drinking glass on site.

15. Why does water come out of the lid?

The H2 Turbo Booster is equipped with a special safety valve in the lid that protects the booster and the pressure piston from overpressure. Here are the details why water may leak from the lid:

1. Avoid overcrowding:

If the pressure vessel is filled via the mark at the start of the thread after taper, the water surface may touch the lid during hydrogen production. This can result in water instead of air or hydrogen gas escaping through the small hole in the lid.

2. Safety valve function:

The safety valve in the lid opens at a pressure of 4 bar to protect the generator from overpressure. At this pressure, a hydrogen content of 4 to 5 ppm can be expected. The valve allows water to escape to regulate pressure and ensure safe use.


To prevent water from escaping from the safety valve, only fill the H2 Turbo Booster up to the specified thread start. This avoids contact of the water with the lid and prevents it from escaping through the safety valve.


1. Checking the battery:

  • Make sure the booster battery is fully charged. If the battery is empty, please charge it with the included USB-C cable.

2. Checking the charging accessories:

  • Check if there is a problem with the charging cable or power adapter. Try charging the device with a different USB-C cable and power adapter.
  • Note: Do not use a fast charging power adapter or a fast charging USB-C cable as they may not be compatible.

3. Limescale deposits:

  • Check the booster for limescale deposits. Limescale can affect H2 bubble formation during electrolysis and reduce efficiency.
  • If limescale deposits are present, use citric acid to descale the booster.

What happens to the hexagonal water structure if I put this water into the Aquavolta hydrogen booster?

Hello Mr. Asenbaum,
I have a question about the Tesla water oscillator that is offered on the Aquavolta site.
What happens to the hexagonal water structure if I put this water in the Aquavolta hydrogen booster do?
How does the hydrogen produced behave in water? What is the best way to combine these devices with each other?
Many thanks in advance for your reply.
With kind regards,

Dear AL,

I can only answer the following based on general physical and chemical considerations:

According to scientifically reliable results, hexagonal water clusters are exclusively dependent on temperature when the electromagnetic radiation environment remains constant. The closer the water approaches the freezing point, the larger the proportion of hexagonal clusters becomes, until it almost only contains hexagonal clusters in the ice form. What is not yet known is the extent to which dissolved hydrogen influences the temperature-dependent cluster curve.

In my opinion, talk of hexagonal water is mostly without any scientific basis. No device in the world can produce pure hexagonal water at room temperature for more than a femtosecond.

But why? The cells in our body absorb water not in clusters, but individually, molecule by molecule through aquaporin channels. The cells don't care about drunk water clusters at all.

The Tesla oscillator uses radio frequency to send high-frequency heat rays deeper into the tissue than an infrared radiator. As a result, the irradiated water components become rather warm, i.e. less hexagonal. The hydrogen booster presses hydrogen gas into the water. This does not affect the cluster structure. Hydrogen concentration and water structure are two completely different construction sites. But there is nothing wrong with enriching Tesla-structured water with H2 gas in a hydrogen booster.

Dear ladies and gentlemen from the Aquacentrum,

I suffer a little from hair loss and have looked into the topic and come to the realization that it is probably not just genetically pre-programmed, but is a sign of hyperacidity and demineralization of the body, which is how I ended up researching them.

Now my question is what your institution or Mr. Yasin Akgün can recommend to me in this regard.

The new cult drink: hydrogen water (H2 water) or water containing hydrogen

And in detail. And yet not detailed enough, because there are now over 1.000 scientific studies on the benefits of drinking hydrogen-rich water. But what interests most people much more than the effect on seriously ill people or deliberately sick laboratory animals that are given it to drink are the questions: What does it taste like, how does it feel?

Most people report a rather unusual experience when drinking hydrogen water: They want more of it. To put it bluntly - you get thirsty when you drink, even if there shouldn't be any salt in the water. The effect even works with completely desalinated reverse osmosis water with hydrogen. Because hydrogen is the smallest of all molecules and is therefore a gas that knows no barriers in the body.

Hydrogen (H2) gets everywhere, within minutes.

Even into the mitochondria and the cell nucleus. It simply flows through the entire body practically unhindered. Lips, tongue, palate, gums and throat are the first contact surfaces in the body into which hydrogen penetrates when drinking. And this process sends signals to our sensitive throat, which bears the highest responsibility for selecting food: Here comes something that we always need! Hence the desire for more of it. Because all of our energy-producing cells with their mitochondrial energy power plants are actually programmed primarily to obtain hydrogen from food.

Many people experience greater clarity in their heads within just a few minutes of drinking, which is usually accompanied by a feeling of refreshment. And some people just want to drink the next bottle straight away.

On the one hand, hydrogen in the body is a fast-acting signaling molecule. You don't need a large amount of it, just a short burst. For example, hydrogen in the stomach ensures increased release of the messenger substance GHRELIN, which stimulates the production of growth hormones.

But this only happens when we drink hydrogen-rich water. A much larger amount of hydrogen, which we can ingest by inhaling hydrogen-rich air, for example, has no effect at all in this direction because contact is made via the lungs and not the stomach.

Therefore, drinking hydrogen water has caught on in global markets much faster than that Inhalation, which only seems useful for certain diseases.

Diseases and oxidative stress

These are mainly diseases that have to do with oxidative stress. In other words, with free radicals for which the body does not have the appropriate amounts and types of antioxidants to render them harmless. It has been shown here that hydrogen has selective antioxidant properties. He is a specialist in the worst of all free radicals, namely the DNA-damaging hydroxyl ion.

We don't yet know exactly whether it extinguishes the hydroxyl radicals directly or whether it simply prevents them from forming - but in any case there are fewer of them and that's good for everyone.

"> Electro-activated water” summarized in 3 sentences


I am often asked by readers of my very thick book “> Electro-activated water” asked if you couldn’t explain all of this in 3 sentences. If you want it to be that short, you have to live with strong abstractions. But I try:

  1. Electrical energy passes through water, causing chemical reactions (ionization) and gas evolution from water: oxygen and hydrogen.
  2. Oxygen is not rare and can be easily supplied through the lungs, so we don't need it in the stomach and remove it, leaving hydrogen water.
  3. Hydrogen water retains some of the electrical energy that we sent through the water, which it stores like a hydrogen battery - energy that the body can use as a signaling source or as an antioxidant.

Hydrogen energy is the basis of life and can also be usefully used to refresh our food.

The transfer of hydrogen through hydrogen water to aged food

Drinking water - but you can also leave it alone if you share Heinz Ehrhard's opinion. And should still have a water ionizer. A fundamental characteristic of alkaline activated water is its high content of dissolved hydrogen gas dH2.

For a good continuous ionizer, this is already at a pH of 9 and room temperature between 1200 and 1300 micrograms/l.

You should drink the water up to a pH value of 9,5, This means, depending on the ionizer, 1250 to 1450 micrograms/l. If the water ionizer can achieve even higher pH values, around pH 11, which you should never drink long-term, a dH2 value of 1800 micrograms (1,8 mg)/l is also possible.

This can now be used to transfer hydrogen to other foods. Since the hydrogen is ready to give up its two electrons easily, this results in one Lowering the redox potential, which signals the increase in electron availability.

Must See: Latest Lecture | Basic hydrogen water

Karl Heinz Asenbaum reports on his latest findings


Book: “On life in food”, Prof. Manfred Hoffmann

The food researcher Prof. Manfred Hoffmann states in his book: “On Living in Food” that a decrease in the redox potential of 18 mV means a doubling of the electron supply and that the Difference in quality of food of a particular variety can best be objectified by measuring the redox potential:

The lower – the better! It often shows up Organic goods have a lower redox potential. But what matters most is freshness. The redox potential, and therefore especially the hydrogen content of the cell tissue in our food, is very volatile.

Denn Hydrogen is the smallest of all elements at all and, as a very volatile gas, can penetrate organic structures almost effortlessly.

But the important thing is that you get through it Placing food in alkaline activated water (water containing hydrogen) whose hydrogen content can increase again and thus “refresh” them.

Measurements of the electron supply of the apple with and without placing it in hydrogen-containing water

Electron abundance of apples Hydrogen transfer through hydrogen-containing water

We love freshness – redox potential (ORP)

The apple fresh from the tree, the cucumber fresh from the field – that’s how we like it best. The apple from Australia and the cucumber from Spain have lost a lot of their life energy on their long transport routes before we can finally bite into them. We can prevent too much water from being lost through cooling and vacuum packaging. This means our products still look fresh and not shriveled when we buy them. However, we cannot stop the loss of hydrogen so easily. What we see is apparent freshness. However, most people can tell the difference between a truly fresh fruit from the tree or field Foods with a long transport history definitely smell and taste.

But Freshness can also be measured objectively: As redox potential (ORP)

An example on the left:

Half an apple (Braeburn variety) is placed in alkaline active water (hydrogen water) pH 1 with ORP (-) 9,5 mV (CSE) for 395 hour. The other half is just measured.

Apple output ORP: (+) 328 mV (CSE)

Final ORP of apple: (+) 232 mV (CSE)

Absolute ORP – difference              88 mV

The apple's supply of electrons almost doubled five times when it was placed in alkaline hydrogen water (Active Water) for 60 minutes!

reason for that is the entry of dH2 into the apple, which causes the ORP to decrease.


How much ORP profit is possible?

A shorter pickling time is usually enough, especially if the pickled foods have a soft skin or shell, such as currants or apricots.

Example Currants 30 mins. in basic hydrogen water (active water) pH 9,8 with ORP (-) 413 mV (CSE).

Output ORP: (+) 068 mV (CSE)

End ORP: (-) 250 mV (CSE)

Absolute ORP difference:           318 mV

Half an apricot is placed in basic hydrogen water (active water) pH 20 with ORP (-) 9,9 mV (CSE) for 429 minutes. The other half is just measured.

Untreated half: (+) 348 mV (CSE)

Treated half: (-) 209 mV (CSE)

Absolute ORP difference:            557 mV

For foods without shells such as raw meat or fish, soaking times of 2-3 minutes are enough to have a noticeable effect.


The so-called “contactless” activation

When it was not yet known that Migratory hydrogen gas is responsible for the drop in the redox potential in neighboring liquid systems all sorts of theories about so-called “contactless” activation were discussed. The trigger for the “contactless” discussion was an experiment in which it was shown that a latex condom filled with electro-activated alkaline water inexplicably transferred its negative redox potential to water in which it was inserted. Later we realized that a condom was apparently not as tight as we had thought.

The intestine, on the other hand, is known to be porous, as I have shown how well alkaline hydrogen water (active water) transports both the hydrogen and the minerals it carries into the body. To do this, I filled a sheep intestine, which is normally used for white sausage, with alkaline hydrogen water pH 9,5 and ORP (-) 349 mV and placed it in physiological saline solution (blood substitute) with pH 10 and ORP (+7,03 mV) for 194 minutes. a.

The absolute ORP gain was 480 mV, almost 0,5 volts.

Since it is often falsely claimed that “inorganic calcium” from hard water cannot be absorbed through the intestines, I also determined the degrees of hardness:

  • Physiological saline solution: 0 mg/l CaCO3
  • Alkaline hydrogen water in the intestine: 445 mg/l CaCO3
  • Saline after 10 minutes: 222,5 mg/l CaCO3

Calcium So it migrated effortlessly like hydrogen. Minerals in water are easily absorbable.


Hydrogen transfer through packaging

The rapid mobility of hydrogen dissolved in alkaline active water finds its limits in packaging made of thick-walled glass and stainless steel. These are therefore also well suited for storing hydrogen-rich water. Plastic bags are particularly permeable and are therefore also suitable for “activating” liquid contents such as juices.

This made an already very high-quality carrot juice that lasted 20 minutes in a freezer bag was placed in basic hydrogen water (pH 9,9 ORP (-) 423 mV (CSE), improve its redox potential by 241 mV.

This corresponds to an approx. 13-fold doubling of the electron supply.

Perhaps the most surprising result was the result after placing a 30 liter carton of fresh whole milk in it for 0,5 minutes:

Here the redox potential improved by 97 mV. I like to refer to this procedure in my lectures as: “The cow in the fridge".

In all examples Incidentally, the pH value only changes by a tenth up. OH- ions are easily slowed down by many barriers.


Eggs in alkaline hydrogen water

Almost everyone can see, taste or smell whether a cracked chicken egg is fresh. But should you throw away eggs that are a little older or feed them to the Easter bunnies?

If you Soak raw eggs in alkaline hydrogen water for 30 minutes, you will see it, taste it and smell it. Of course, you can no longer save rotten eggs that have already been invaded by bacteria. But Even very fresh eggs can be obtained using this process.

2 “commercially fresh” organic eggs from the same box were assessed separately for their redox potential in egg white and yolk.

Untreated egg:

  • ORP egg white: (+) 59 mV (CSE)
  • ORP Yolk: (+) 34 mV (CSE)

Egg soaked in alkaline active water (hydrogen water) for 30 minutes:

  • ORP egg white: (-) 56 mV (CSE)
  • ORP Yolk: (+) 14 mV (CSE)

ORP gain absolute: egg white: 115 mV – egg yolk 20 mV

No more juice shops

The end of the bottled water industry, which causes high costs and environmental damage due to the spread of water ionizers, is already predictable. But do we actually still need retail chains for fruit and vegetable juices, and even for lemonade?

Lecture: EAW, history & contactless transmission of H2

From cola to orange juice:

Seen in light, most domestic beverage manufacturers are not producers at all, but pure bottling companies for concentrates produced somewhere in the world, to which they only add water and, if necessary, sugar or carbon dioxide.

Environmental politicians have long been calling for the mixing of concentrates with water and other additives to be decentralized and left to the consumer. Almost every professional restaurateur uses such mixing devices on his bar.

There have already been attempts to limit the expensive carting of bottles along our highways. But it's not that easy, for example, to get apple or orange juice concentrate that you can mix yourself for your household, even though you can buy tons of apple and orange juice "from concentrate" in every supermarket.

Is it a memory of long-gone “syrup” times when people couldn’t even afford fresh juices? Or is it the fear of the frowned upon tap water, which is less trusted than the water that the bottling companies use to dilute the imported concentrates?

With a water ionizer and its premium built-in pre-filters, you can produce purer and higher quality water than the beverage industry.

And I will now show you that the mixing results from beverage concentrates are also measurably better.

orange juice

The search for the optimal orange juice

Self-pressed, directly pressed, from concentrate – or mixed yourself from concentrate?

  • Self-pressed from “La Sarte”: pH 3,82; ORP (-) 104; dH2: 0
  • “Organic Organic” Concentrate juice: pH 3,72; ORP (+) 158; dH2: 0
  • “Fruit Star” Concentrate juice: pH 3,82; ORP (+)117; dH2: 0
  • “Wolfra” Direct juice: pH 3,92; ORP (+) 113; dH2: 0
  • “Valensina” (fresh chilled): pH 3,88; ORP (+) 157; dH2: 0
  • “Ratio drink” Organic orange juice concentrate Tap water parameters: pH 7,49; ORP (+) 238; dH2: 0 active water (hydrogen water) parameters: pH 9,52; ORP (-) 632; dH2: 1255 “Ratiodrink” parameters (pure): pH 3,47; ORP (+) 042; dH2: 0
  • “Ratiodrink” mixed itself in a ratio of 1: 2,5

This ratio resulted in the optimal taste experience that was most comparable to home-pressed juice.

With tap water: pH 3,68; ORP (+) 190; dH2 0 with hydrogen water (active water): pH 3,79; ORP (-) 349; dH2: 622

The result was even better than with the home-pressed “La Sarte” juice orange.

By the way: It works the same way with apple juice concentrate!

Tomatoes and (hydrogen water) activated water

The tomato, the love apple - called tomato in Austria and pomodoro (golden apple) in Italy - is more important to the active water scene than any other fruit. Because it is part of a sales concept in which water ionizers are sold that are made by adding salt before electrolysis alkaline functional water with a pH value above 11 can generate.

This is a chemical that emulsifies fat, making it water-soluble. This water must not be drunk because it is as harmful to health as lye: it attacks the membrane of our body cells, which is made up of fatty layers. Just like the skin of tomatoes, which contains the most important antioxidant ingredient that turns the tomato red:

The fat-soluble carotenoid lycopene. This now dissolves in the highly basic functional water from the shell and colors the water red-yellow. The sellers of these devices now falsely claim that this color shows the pesticides and other pollutants that have now been released from the peel, meaning that the alkaline functional water is ideal for cleaning fruit and vegetables.

In reality, the best thing is being taken away from the tomato, what it brings with it, lycopene, one of the few cook-proof antioxidants (which is why canned tomatoes, tomato paste and even ketchup are still valuable). Incidentally, a conventionally grown apple placed in the functional water at the same time did not cause any “pollutant coloring”.

The right tomato By the way, it was grown strictly organically and free of harmful substances. Nevertheless, it gave off just as much red dye. There are really no pollutants! Nevertheless, the organic tomato shows a significantly better ORP value after 12 hours of pickling!

Better tomatoes through activated water (hydrogen water)

As is well known, there is great tomatoes and supermarket tomatoes. The former taste better and cost much more, the latter are bred for the consumer's eye.

The beautiful tomatoes from the greenhouses of the supplier industry for discounters are always available, the good ones only at certain times of the year. Only canned tomatoes always have the same quality because they are basically made from fully ripe fruits whose appearance is irrelevant.

Without much hassle, we can also give tomatoes more measurable food quality in the form of a negative ORP by placing them in basic hydrogen water (active water) to transfer hydrogen. To protect the sensitive lycopene in the shell, it should do not exceed a pH value of 10,5. This means that ORP values ​​of up to (-) 30 mV (CSE) are possible in 383 minutes. It works best with halved tomatoes. The pH value of the tomato does not change, so its taste and sourness remain intact. A pasta sauce cooked with it also impresses with its negative redox potential.

The Lycopene content A raw tomato is approx. 100 mg per 9 g, tomato juice 11, tomato puree and ketchup 17, tomato paste 55,5 mg/100 g. Of course, no one will eat 100g of tomato paste. If you eat a pound of tomatoes, you'll have almost the same amount of lycopene.

b-tomato juice

Better tomato juice

Ready-seasoned and salted tomato juices impress with their low redox potentials in the positive millivolt range. The organic juice is slightly less acidic and has a significantly better redox potential. Both juices taste excellent, which may also be due to the spices. In this respect, the taste comparison with “fresh” pureed tomatoes from the discount store would be unfair, because you can season the puree yourself. The ORP values ​​(CSE) of our samples from the mixer from left to right:

+ 72 mV: vine tomatoes; + 82 mV: organic vine tomatoes and

+ 64 mV: Costolutto variety (4x more expensive). Narrow winner.

None of the samples show dissolved hydrogen. In contrast, it stands out Triple concentrated tomato paste “Oro di Parma” with one Hydrogen content of 680 micrograms/l out at one ORP of (-) 352 mV. But it tastes quite “metallic” even when diluted with water.

The best end results after 1:1 dilution with basic hydrogen-containing active water pH 9,5, ORP (-) 620 mV (CSE) were obtained electrochemically and in terms of taste when using ready-made organic tomato puree from a discounter in a ratio of 1:1. This puree already contained 613 micrograms/l dH2 unmixed, which increased after mixing 708 ppb (micrograms/L) increased. The ORP could be reduced to (-) 104 mV. After seasoning a very good juice result.

Fitness powder

Concentrated proteins are primarily offered as a nutritional supplement for competitive athletes such as bodybuilders to build muscle. However, they are not a nutritional supplement, but rather food in the most concentrated, defined form.

The most common are “Whey“ – Mixtures made from powdered whey protein, to which vitamins, minerals, enzymes, etc. are added as a supplement. Especially with powders that are absolutely “dead” due to drying, it is a good idea to give them a little more of their original vitality by mixing them with alkaline active water (hydrogen water).

fitness powder-1

A comparison of some popular products of this type shows that the test winner is only slightly ahead, but that it is always Significant advantages over mixing with tap water brings.

Left: tap water pH 7,5, ORP (+) 267 (CSE); dH2 0 micrograms/l.

Right: hydrogen water pH 9,9, ORP (-) 683 (CSE); dH2 1313 micrograms/l.

The loss/gain compared to tap water after mixing with the powder is shown.


Diet powder and hydrogenated water

The considerations presented in the “Fitness Powder” section for the use of alkaline hydrogen water for mixing also apply to powder mixtures for “losing weight”, however effective they may be. These are also not nutritional supplements, but rather complete food replacements that are intended to make it easier to avoid everyday foods that have led to weight gain during the diet phase with reduced calorie intake.

Such diet relief powders are a dime a dozen. So I only have one of the most popular ones Almased® tested to Basic advantage of mixing with alkaline active water to clarify. Basic values ​​of the mixed water as with fitness powders

Breast milk and hydrogen water (video article)

Nowadays, milk powder is hardly used as a substitute for fresh milk in the private sector, as there is a good supply of fresh milk, at least in industrialized countries. I have already shown how even this can be improved in the chapter “Hydrogen transfer through packaging”. However, they are widely used as formula food for infants who are not breastfed and are therefore particularly important for a closer look at their electrochemical quality parameters. Because cow's milkfrom which the baby milk powder is obtained different measurements than the milk of a breastfeeding woman.


It is striking that the electrochemical normal values ​​of breast milk correspond to the fluctuation ranges of human blood. Apparently nature makes it easier for the infant to absorb milk nutrients into the bloodstream.

milk powder

So the fundamental question is: how can you the greatest possible similarity of the baby milk mixtures to become a natural master model? Or can you feed your baby even better with formula? Scientists serving milk powder manufacturers have been thinking about these questions for over 100 years. Does the use of basic hydrogen water bring an additional advantage here?

Baby milk powder

Some manufacturers of baby milk powder have already addressed the question of what role the water with which their products are mixed plays. Therefore, they sell their own brands of “baby water".

Using one such baby water brand “Humana®”, I tested its electrochemical effects on the end product that ends up in the bottle on various brands. The results are not very convincing for me.

Conventional alternatives for baby milk?


In fact, the baby milk powder mixed with Humana® Baby Water all performed even better electrochemically (ORP value) than a ready-mixed bottled product, which is given to young mothers in some maternity clinics shortly after birth as a substitute if they have breastfeeding difficulties.

Because a redox potential of + 73 mV (CSE) means that the infant has a tension of at least 75 mV must overcometo transport the nutrients in milk into his body. At least the pH value of this product at 6,92 is even better than the best value of 6,64 achieved with “baby water”.

Is the pH value more important than the redox value in this case? In this case, this question is scientifically new and has not even been discussed yet. I think no.

Mineral water for mixing rarely offers better values ​​than the baby water on offer. As the owner of what is probably the largest electrochemically analyzed mineral water collection in the world, you can really believe me:

The mineral water from the St. Leonhardsquelle in Leonhardsfunzen in Upper Bavaria delivered the best values ​​among 120 types when mixing milk powder.

But this result is not just either far from the original mother's milk, but also more expensive in terms of price than the powder itself.

The pH value is still 0,7 pH below the “target”, the ORP value of +24 mV (CSE) is 26 to 86 mV below the master model of breast milk. With alkaline active water (hydrogen water) you get much closer to the ideal

Alkaline, hydrogen-containing water and the influence of hydrogen on breast milk

breast milk Babyvita milk powder

I hope that this book encourages baby food manufacturers to do more research, which then leads to a recommendation. I would just like to point out that the use of alkaline active water (hydrogen water), for example a milk powder “Bebivita® Initial Milk 1” closer to the electrochemical parameters measured in natural breast milk than with common previous methods. Active water at a temperature of 14o C with the following parameters was used for mixing: pH 9,8; ORP (-) 609mV (CSE); dissolved hydrogen 1353 micrograms/l. The result: pH 7,3; ORP -053 mV (CSE), dissolved hydrogen 136 micrograms/L.

Another question to be clarified through scientific studies would be whether the quality of breast milk can be improved by the mother drinking alkaline hydrogen water (active water) during the breastfeeding period. My pilot test on a test subject suggests this:

Breast milk sample 1: May 8.5.2012, 7,55 without drinking active water pH 27 ORP: (-) XNUMX mV

Breast milk sample 2: May 23.5.2012, 9,5 with previous daily active water drinking (pH 220, ORP -7,54 mV) ad libitum. pH 56 ORP: – XNUMX mV.

Doubling the negative redox potential in 15 days means a strong one Increase in electron supply.

The new hydrogen discussion

Research by the Japanese Shigeo Ohta showed in 2007 that molecularly dissolved hydrogen gas, which is responsible for the negative ORP, also has antioxidant effects. Since then, molecular hydrogen gas has exploded into one of the most interesting topics in medical research. 12) It shows promise in treating the most common non-infectious diseases prevalent today.

Above all, molecular hydrogen directly combats the most destructive of all free radicals, the hydroxyl radical, which, with an ORP of (+) 2300 mV, tops the list of cell destroyers, ahead of ozone (+ 2000 mV).

In contrast to other highly effective antioxidants, H2 does not leave any side effects: it simply turns into water!

H2 also neutralizes the peroxynitrite anion and prevents the formation of nitrogen radicals that are dangerous for cell structures and important enzymes. Previously, hydrogen gas (H2) was considered unimportant in physiology because it requires a relatively large amount of energy to undergo chemical reactions (435 kJ/mol). In addition, our body uses it quite wastefully by constantly expelling hydrogen gas through our breath.

Scientists and hydrogen therapy

As early as the 1990s, only a few Japanese scientists led by Hidemitsu Hayashi pursued the idea that hydrogen could play a key role in the observed healing effects of alkaline activated water.

Since Shigeo Ohta's discoveries, molecular hydrogen gas has been one of the most interesting topics in medical research. Prof. Garth L. Nicolson, a Nobel Prize-nominated scientific heavyweight in cell medicine, cited 2016 scientific studies on the new healing gas in a 44-page review article published in 338. The most surprising finding of the research, which has now grown to over 1000 studies, is that hydrogen gas is not a strong antioxidant, but a weak one. And it is precisely this apparent disadvantage that gives it the advantage of selective action:

Selective effect of molecular hydrogen

It only acts as an antioxidant when there is a particularly strong oxidative attack on cell structures, as is the case with hydroxyl and nitrogen radicals.

To put it in a metaphor: Molecular hydrogen in the body is like a smoke detector that does not set off the sprinkler system when a candle is lit, but only when the Christmas tree starts to burn. Larger and stronger antioxidants would interrupt important signaling pathways, especially in the cell nucleus, where hydrogen gas can penetrate easily.

Hidemitsu Hayashi Photo Theory of Water Control Magnesium Stick
Garth L Nicolson Clinical effects of hydrogen administration

Molecular hydrogen is therefore very promising in the treatment of the most important non-infectious diseases. Of the three dosage forms as a drink, infusion solution and inhalation gas, hydrogen water is the most common.

Quality assessment of H2 water by dH2, ORP or pH?

Given these extensive findings, dissolved hydrogen (dissolved hydrogen dH2) has become a key component of electroactivated water since 2008. This naturally leads to the question: Which parameter should you use to assess the quality of water: dH2 or ORP and pH?

To summarize the long-standing discussion between redox potential and hydrogen: The redox potential is a side effect. The imaginative discussions about “free electrons” or “contactless transmission” are now only of historical importance. However, it took until 2016 until a method for measuring dH2 that was also practical for laypeople was found.

This initially has a very simple practical consequence for the user of alkaline activated water: he can ignore all warnings about metal vessels: all that matters is that the vessel is gas-tight.

Glass and stainless steel are now replacing the various plastics that cannot retain hydrogen.

Since the ability of H2 to dissolve decreases as the water temperature increases, double-walled containers with thermal insulation are the storage container of choice. You should always fill up to the brim to prevent the hydrogen dissolved in the water from outgassing into an air bubble. In this way, the dH2 loss can be effectively limited.

This also has consequences for the size of the bottle: Once opened and in contact with the atmosphere, the hydrogen inevitably and quickly escapes.

Therefore, the bottles should not be larger than the amount of water that can be consumed in a short time.

The aim is to produce as much hydrogen as possible in the alkaline activated water and to maintain this content to a maximum until the time of drinking.

Oxygen water: O2 water

There are companies that O2 water have developed and sell it successfully. This doesn't contain any hydrogen. From today's perspective, that doesn't make sense. Oxygen is the combustor, hydrogen is the fuel in the body.

Energy storage through hydrogen is only possible by charging NADH+ to NADH in the body. Albert of Szént-György explained this in his Nobel Prize speech in 1937 - exactly the year in which electrolyte water was registered as a medicinal specialty in Germany. We can only obtain hydrogen by supplying energy in the form of food.

At the end of the metabolism we get hydrogen from it and all the biochemical sophistication of our cells only serves to break down the oxyhydrogen reaction between oxygen and hydrogen into several gentle steps.

Oxygen (o2) is best absorbed through the lungs.

We can fan any amount of oxygen through the lungs to the cells. In all normal situations, the supply of hydrogen is the only problem in our organism.

With the help of alkaline, hydrogen-rich activated water, we can skip the metabolic chain and immediately supply ourselves with hydrogen without the respiratory chain and citric acid cycle, which, due to its tiny molecular size, can flow effortlessly through the entire body, including the mitochondria.

With alkaline active water (hydrogen water), the fuel of life can be easily drunk. And in addition, it is not only the smallest, but also the most elegant antioxidant. Because it does not become a radical after it has given up its energy, but water.

A word about the apparent excess of hydrogen in our bodies, which causes us to constantly exhale and evaporate hydrogen. You often hear: Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe. For example, you and I are made up of 99% hydrogen atoms. Each of us is only 1% non-hydrogen.

H2 is the most common element in the universe, but is in short supply on Earth

And now comes the highlight: the most common element in the universe is in absolute short supply on our planet. While hydrogen represents 75% of the total mass of our solar system, we only find 0,12 percent of it on our planet. In contrast, we have the hydrogen burner oxygen in abundance: almost half of the earth's mass consists of it.

Hydrogen, which is rare on Earth, is usually only present in compounds. For example as water. But it's pretty unattractive because water is nothing more than burnt hydrogen. Water is dead hydrogen. Only life on this earth, from plants to bacteria to humans, is able to produce hydrogen, the engine of life, from water.

And to do this, life uses the energy it gets from the universe:

The energy of the sun and the thermal and electromagnetic energy stored inside the earth. Unbound molecular oxygen strives back to the sun as a rapidly rising gas. This is why, for example, cars with a hydrogen tank are less at risk of explosion in an accident than petrol vehicles, because the leaking petrol stays on the ground for a long time, while the hydrogen flies upwards in a flash.

With the help of water electrolysis, we convert electrical energy, which ultimately comes from the conversion of solar energy, into chemical energy, which is then available to us as hydrogen, the gas of life. Hydrogen water is therefore more energy-rich than normal water. 

The new question regarding basic hydrogen water (active water) is therefore:

How do you get the most hydrogen gas dissolved in water suitable for drinking?

There has been a heated discussion about this around the globe since around 2013. I will deal with the ideas and misconceptions in the next chapters.

New methods and devices to produce H2

HRW 00

First, let's remember what a classic water ionizer does: It divides water molecules and separates the resulting water ions in an anode and cathode chamber. This causes hydroxide ions to condense in the cathode chamber and protons (H+ ions in the form of H3 O+ ions) on the anode side of the electrolysis cell of the water ionizer.

At the same time, the basic cations migrate through the diaphragm membrane to the cathode side and the anions move to the anode side. On the left the pH value decreases, on the right it increases.

The water on the cathode side, which should have a pH of 8,5 - 9,5 for drinking, is richer in alkaline ions such as calcium, magnesium, etc. than tap water.

The first question is: is it possible without a water ionizer?

Hydrogen water in bags

If you are only looking for hydrogen in the water and want to avoid bases and minerals in the water, you can also do without a water ionizer. Hydrogen from industrial welding technology in pressure bottles is really not expensive.

A successful method for producing hydrogen-rich water that can last for several months has been developed in Japan. It works like this.

This method from the Japanese market leader IZUMIO® uses high hydrogen pressure to force 2600 ppb of hydrogen into the water. That is around 1000 ppb more than would be possible under the normal pressure of 1 atmosphere.

Before it is filled into four-layer aluminum bags, the dissolved oxygen is removed from the water using a vacuum membrane. This causes the redox potential to drop more than with methods that leave oxygen in the water.

Izumio advertising

Hydrogen in bags

Shigeo Ohta, the discoverer of the medical benefits of hydrogen, advocates this method in a YouTube interview. But there is a crucial problem with this.

H2 water in bags | Disadvantages:

This method is very expensive. The portion bags only contain 0,2 liters and the price for 1 liter is well over €10. As explained on page 8, you should drink more than one liter a day.

So this method is probably only an option for those few people for whom money is no object. Cheaper imitation products without the patented method show lower values ​​as soon as they are opened. The waste for an American product, measured with H2 blueTM test drops, shows a half-life of 50 minutes. The low initial value indicates that the dissolved oxygen was not squeezed out properly.

It can be assumed that the prices for such products will fall as a result of mass availability. But apart from that, the complex single-use aluminum bags are difficult to recycle and therefore hardly desirable according to our current understanding of sustainable packaging ecology.

The existing waste problem with billions of plastic ash is bad enough.

High-pressure filling for the production of supersaturated hydrogen water

Whether the supersaturation of the water with molecular hydrogen resulting from high-pressure filling actually benefits the water drinker, or whether it only compensates for the loss of the volatile gas caused by storage and transport, is another question.

As soon as you unscrew the closure of the bag, the excess pressure reduces in a few seconds and falls back to the usual 1600 ppb, and even lower at higher temperatures.

If the bags are not transported in a cold chain, a bubble with outgassed hydrogen will also form inside the bag.

This is because molecular hydrogen is not actually really dissolved in water like mineral ions. Because hydrogen gas is not polar. It is hydrophobic, so it repels water. What is stored in water depending on temperature and pressure is just a kind of dispersion.

This is shown in my following laboratory experiment. I filled an absolutely sealed gas mouse with supersaturated hydrogen water at 1680 ppb.

I added a strip of metallic magnesium to a second gas mouse that was filled with the same water.

This gradually dissolves in the water to form hydrogen gas and hydroxide ions, so that it becomes hydrogen-rich and more basic. Both gas mice were initially filled without bubbles and were then stored at room temperature.

Experiments with hydrogen and water in the gas mouse

Above: Supersaturated alkaline hydrogen water (pH 10,5) from a water ionizer. Top right: The same hydrogen water from a water ionizer with a 5 centimeter long strip of metallic magnesium.

Gas mouse (6)

After a week, a much larger hydrogen gas bubble had separated in the gas mouse with magnesium (bottom glass). In both cases, the water separated out the supersaturated hydrogen and could not do anything with the additional supply from the magnesium.

Even after 6 months, no further hydrogen could be stored in the water due to the magnesium effect. An even larger gas bubble formed.

The experiment shows two things:
  • An electrolytic water ionizer can produce supersaturated basic hydrogen water. But supersaturation does not remain stable.
  • Chemical hydrogen production, such as through metallic magnesium, also reaches the limits of saturation. This cannot achieve better or more stable results.

pH-neutral hydrogen water

With the increasing importance of the hydrogen factor, some manufacturers of electrolytic water ionizers developed new ideas to store more hydrogen in the water. Some of them are interesting. Others don't. I want to start with the weaker methods, which cannot store as much hydrogen in the water, but are significantly cheaper to produce compared to the relatively high purchase price of a classic basic water ionizer with diaphragm electrolysis.

What these devices have in common is that the manufacturers only keep an eye on the hydrogen content. They simply declare it unnecessary that the water should also be alkaline and that the oxygen should be removed because of its oxidizing nature. They also consider removing the anions to be just as unnecessary as increasing the amount of cations in the alkaline activated water.

The pH value is passé for them. Hydrogen content is everything. On the following pages I will describe the most important of these techniques, which have been developed since around 2010.

Oxy-hydrogen generators

The easiest way to produce hydrogen water is in a 1-chamber electrolysis cell in which the cathodes and anode are not separated by a diaphragm. So oxygen and hydrogen are “dissolved” in the water at the same time. In a ratio of 1:2. This is the formula for oxyhydrogen.

However, the manufacturers avoid talking about oxyhydrogen ionizers because they appear explosive and dangerous - although in an aqueous solution and in these quantities it is not at all. They therefore only emphasize hydrogen and speak of “hydrogen-rich-water” generators. My personal favorite expression for this is “double bubbler”.

Basic function of oxy-hydrogen generators

The basic function is shown in the graphic on the right: Technically they are very simple. And they actually get hydrogen gas into the water with little effort, something that normal drinking or mineral water generally does not have.

This water is not really hydrogen-rich. But it can be argued that this is enough for better hydrogen supply and certain antioxidant effects.

The advantage: A simple power supply via a battery that can be recharged using a USB cable. You can use it to prepare up to 20 liters of water on the go and without a power outlet. In an OXY hydrogen generator, oxygen is not only not removed, but is actually added.

As a result, the dissolved oxygen acts as a counterpoint to the hydrogen and the redox potential is never as low as in a water ionizer. But that doesn't matter, say the supporters of this technology.

HRW Dolo

Since these mobile devices always work with very low voltages between 4,5 and 8,7 volts, there is no risk of ozone being formed on the anode in addition to oxygen.
Nevertheless, most manufacturers have now moved away from the double bubbler technology - partly because of our references to the disadvantages of oxygen retention.

This technology is only still used in the area of ​​bathing and beauty water - i.e. outside of the drinking area - mainly because it is really very cheap. I will introduce further methods on the next pages.

Chemical H2 generators

In order to really get the maximum benefit from hydrogen water, dissolved oxygen should at least not be added as with the “double-bubblers”.

Chemical hydrogen generators such as H2 tablets, certain ceramic mixtures or hydrogen-producing metals such as magnesium do not add dissolved oxygen.

But they also don't remove oxygen that's already dissolved in the water.

They are often also referred to as “water ionizers”.

However, the water produced with it differs significantly from electro-activated alkaline active water, as a further look at pages 7-8 of this book could explain. See also p. 43.

H² tablets

Hydrogen-generating fizzy tablets are also based on the magnesium effect. However, due to their composition, they release hydrogen much more quickly. They are dissolved in a pressurized bottle filled with water for 10-20 minutes, which can produce dH2 values ​​over 3000 ppb if the bottle is small enough. However, the taste of these products is usually not perceived as pleasant and does not encourage people to drink a lot.

In the meantime, drop solutions have also been developed that are said to taste better. However, due to some EU regulations, it is not always easy to get such products for testing as they are withdrawn from circulation by customs. Here is a measurement example of an H2 tablet in 1 liter of reverse osmosis water (ROW) and the half-life of the hydrogen produced 50 minutes after opening the pressure bottle.

hydronade H2 magnesium effervescent tablets production of hydrogen water

PEM/SPE/HIM ionizer

The best chemical water ionizer I found stored 1200 ppb (1,2ppm) of hydrogen in the water. Most manufacturers of such devices also specify this value, even if it cannot be achieved in every type of water.

However, to achieve such values, a waiting time of approx. 12 hours is required and only a small amount of hydrogen water - usually 0,5 liters - can be produced with it. This is not compatible with a normal lifestyle because no one has that much time when they are thirsty.

To solve the problem of long preparation times, hydrogen infusion machines (HIM) were developed that extract hydrogen from a flow-through electrolysis cell and dissolve it in water. The technology works like this:

The basic idea of ​​the HIM ionizer is to carry out the electrolysis to produce hydrogen gas using a PEM cell that runs on demineralized water and produces only the gases hydrogen and oxygen. The resulting hydrogen is mixed with normal mineral-containing drinking water in a dispersion chamber, the oxygen and the resulting ozone are released into the air.

HIM and HWCM water cells

In 2016 and 2017 I tested HIMs from various manufacturers for their hydrogen content. No one was able to fulfill the promise of dissolving 1200 ppb of hydrogen in Munich's tap water. The values ​​were between 300 and 800 ppb. Just one H2fXCell reached 1100 ppb.

Some of the constructions in which HWCM modules are installed are more reminiscent of a LEGO construction set than of a series-ready technology that is intended to be installed as an under-table device.

In most cases, only the 12 V power supplies supplied have a European CE approval, not the devices themselves. These devices, which do not store more, but less hydrogen than today's water ionizers, still have a lot of catching up to do in engineering. The ozone problem is also unsolved.

Even water from a HIM ionizer that creates 1100 ppb releases significant gas bubbles after 11 hours, even faster than with water ionizers.

The talk of better hydrogen dispersion turns out to be a big marketing speech bubble.

HIM with ozone mode

During my visit to Korea in spring 2016, Kim Young Kwi, head of the renowned manufacturer KYK, showed me a special hydrogen infusion machine in his development department. It delivered a hydrogen level of almost 1500 ppb.

The exciting question was whether this result could not only be achieved with the mineral-poor water from Seoul.

We normally know that European water hardness values ​​are significantly lower than those stated by Korean and Japanese manufacturers.

The result was 1400 ppb for Munich tap water.

But in contrast to the HIMs with HWCM modules, the hydrogen water here was not neutral, but basic with a pH of 9,4 and an ORP of (-) 675 mV (CSE).

How the HIM water cell works

The secret of this wastewater-free water ionizer (only with exhaust air) seems to be a revolutionary cell construction that is still one of KYK's company secrets. The results could be explained, for example, with the following arrangement:HRW 3 device 3

No water flows through the anode chamber.

Only oxygen and ozone are formed there and gas out of the device via an outlet.

KYK PEM H2Generator

In contrast, the water in the cathode chamber is electrolyzed, forming hydrogen and hydroxide ions.

So the pH value increases and the redox potential becomes strongly negative. The device is therefore at least very similar to a classic water ionizer in terms of the development of the pH value and hydrogen enrichment. The dissolved oxygen is also removed. However, there is no increase in cations and a simultaneous decrease in cations.

In addition to the 3 adjustable hydrogen levels (outlined in blue), the new device offers the option of switching to produce ozone water for disinfection purposes. There is only one setting level for this. (Red circle)

KYK H2 O3 water generatorDuring the “Ozone Water” operating mode, hydrogen gas comes out of the drain hose, which can be used, for example, to fizz up all kinds of drinks.

This increases their hydrogen content without adding liquid and reduces the redox potential.

Compare the somewhat more complicated procedures with the alkaline active water of a classic water ionizer on pages 46 ff.

The water from the main outlet that is created in parallel in the OZONE WATER mode can be used for cleaning because of its disinfectant effect.

Figure above: Using the gas outflow hose in OZONE WATER mode for hydrogen gassing of drinks.
The results of around 330 ppb hydrogen in milk and a fruit juice mixture were achieved within one minute. At the same time, around 1 liter of ozone water was bottled from the main outlet.

The question with HIMs will be less whether the market wants them, because there is also a certain demand for ozone water on the Internet. The question is whether the European authorities will allow a device that blows ozone into the air during regular operation. There is still a need for thought here.

SPE/PEM mobile technology – mobile H2 generators

With the first oxy-hydrogen generators, mobile technology also found its way into the water ionizer industry. In order to remove unwanted oxygen, special SPE (Solid Polymer Electrolysis) cells with PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) quickly came onto the market. They already work with USB voltage, so they fit perfectly with established mobile communications technology. The batteries can be easily recharged anywhere and last up to 40 drinking portions of hydrogen water.

SPE:PEM mobile technology

Some only have a tiny hole to let out the oxygen, others have a real valve and an empty compartment for the hybrid water that always occurs at higher overall pressure. According to my measurements, the devices with such a compartment can store more hydrogen.

Higher pressure is the secret of the success of these small devices. If you do not fill the water without an air bubble and do not screw the cap tightly, the hydrogen content will be lower in the same period of time. In the example below, higher pressure was built up on the right. After just 7 minutes of production time, the difference was big.

You can also see differences during production. If the hydrogen bubbles rise faster, less hydrogen dissolves in the water. The smaller the “bubbles” the better.

Another crucial factor is the production time: the longer electrolysis takes place under pressure, the higher levels of dissolved hydrogen can be achieved. Up to 6000 ppb can be achieved in one hour with these devices. At higher pressures, the seals usually fail or the pressure is equalized via the oxygen outlet.

Influence of water quality on hydrogen performance

The type of water used also plays a significant role in hydrogen performance. When all conditions are equal, there are no major differences between the different types of devices. Like here with a 10 minute test with 0,5 l Volvic.SPE PEM mobile technology ppm measurement

It is of utmost importance to keep the top of the PEM cell moistened at all times. Brand new devices that have not been adequately supplied with moisture often need 20 - 30 operations until the membrane reaches full performance.

A PEM cell can also work with distilled water or reverse osmosis water. However, the half-life of the dissolved hydrogen is only 10 – 15 minutes. When using hard water, deposits occur on the cathode and membrane. These must be removed regularly with citric acid.

I can't say much about the durability of the SPE/PEM technology, as none of the approximately 200 devices that we ran in a large-scale test went into operation before mid-2016. When this book was first published in March 2016, most of these devices did not yet exist.

The manufacturers, mostly based in Korea and China, have a breathtaking pace of development and new variants are offered almost every two weeks.

Mobile devices certainly have the best prospects for the future because they fit perfectly into the everyday lives of the smartphone generation. New developments in medicine, such as the discovery of therapeutic hydrogen, spread quickly. The hydrogen age has been here for a long time. There are hydrogen cars for rent in the city, the gas manufacturer Linde has developed a hydrogen-powered bicycle with an auxiliary engine and the Japanese car company Honda is already advertising its brand of water from the exhaust.

Is basic hydrogen water now “out”?

The new electrolysis cell designs presented on the previous pages, which focus on the hydrogen content of the activated water without also making the water alkaline, deliver a hydrogen content of up to 1200 ppb (1,2 ppm).

According to most experts, this is sufficient to produce the typical therapeutic effects of hydrogen water.

Using SPE/PEM mobile devices or tablets, even higher concentrations can be produced in a time-consuming manner.

Some modern water ionizers can also produce hydrogen-supersaturated water. Effective descaling technologies described in this book can also guarantee consistent performance for many years.

However, a water ionizer makes the water alkaline, while the new hydrogen technologies generally do not shift the water's pH value.

For people who think their acid-base balance is perfectly fine, this may well be an alternative.

Someone who consumes enough alkaline minerals through a base-rich diet or appropriately effective dietary supplements may also be well served.

Long history of alkaline water in Germany

Germany has the longest tradition of using electrolyte water. (See pages 66 – 68). Its inventor Alfons Natterer, who developed 3 varieties (basic - neutral - sour), offered his customers a simple test: Drink the type that you like best. This will help you best. The body probably knows itself what is best for it.

Some therapists even use the taste sensation when drinking electrolyte water as a diagnostic tool. With the help of today's technology, all variants of electrolyte water can be made optimally available. I have no doubt that hydrogen is the most important health factor in drinkable electrolyte water. But there is no reason to believe that the basic component is unimportant.

Dr. med. Walter Irlacher

I spent 12 years with the doctor Dr. med. Walter Irlacher worked together in the Bad Füssing thermal baths. I dedicated this book to him. The Bad Füssing thermal water has a dissolved hydrogen content of 2016 ppb, making it the richest source of hydrogen in the world, as far as this measurement, which was previously only known to a few specialists, was recorded. No known healing spring in Russia, America, or the Far East that has been scientifically examined has such value and a correspondingly low redox potential.

Why did Dr. Irlacher decided in 2004 to give thousands of his patients at least 1,5 liters of alkaline active water or hydrogen water from a water ionizer to drink every day in addition to bathing in the healing thermal water?

Because it was much more alkaline than the thermal water and because he was convinced that his hyperacidic patients would get more out of it! The lasting success proved him right and many therapists followed him on this path.
But Dr. Irlacher not only used alkaline active water for deacidification. In the tradition of Manfred von Ardenne, he also relied on oxygen. Because hydrogen and oxygen are the best means of pressing carbon dioxide out of the body, the most powerful of all acidifying factors. Therapy is always individual, we should never forget that.

Descaling / cleaning / device hygiene of the Aquavolta® Nano hydrogen booster

  • If traces of limescale are visible, the inside of the glass container and the grid-shaped, round negative electrode that produces the hydrogen must be cleaned with 1 teaspoon of citric acid dissolved in lukewarm water.
  • Close the screw cap and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Then let the citric acid solution take effect for 1 hour and then rinse the container with lid and the electrode several times with warm water.
  • This cleaning is also necessary for hygiene reasons at least every 2 weeks or if an unpleasant smell is noticeable in the device. In this case the water should be approx. 50 – 60 degrees C.
  • Wipe the exterior of the device with a damp, soft cloth.
  • You can also remove coarse dirt by half filling the pressure container with warm water and shaking vigorously. Then pour away the rinse water.
  • Store the device at room temperature and away from direct sunlight.
