[Role of Active Hydrogen | Creation of HydrogenBoost | Cellular Energy: ATP, Hydrogen]
[Aging and Antioxidant Defense | Worlds Most Elemental Antioxidant | Additional Health Benefits]
[Increases Cellular Hydration | Assists in Exercise Recovery | References]

  • The first active hydrogen supplement (H-), a rich source of electrons. Each tablet contains 500mg of silica hydride.

  • Electrons from H- are a source of energy to generate the body’s staggering amounts of ATP (energy molecule).

  • HydrogenBoost doubles cellular ATP and NADH in vitro.

  • Theorized to be the most potent antioxidant in vitro.

  • May decrease lactic acid levels after exercise.

Most people don’t think of hydrogen as a nutrient, but, in fact, this fundamental element has a profound role in maintaining human health. Hydrogen is the essential factor in the electrochemical process that produces ATP, the energy molecule. Virtually all the millions of biochemical processes that occur every second of our lives are powered by ATP.

These facts are well established, but until now they have been overlooked in the world of nutritional science. It took the dedicated research of Dr Patrick Flanagan to harness the power of active hydrogen.

Source Naturals HydrogenBoost is a breakthrough natural mineral nutritional supplement, which is a source of negatively charged hydrogen ions bound to silica. HydrogenBoost may be the world’s most potent antioxidant. It harnesses the power of active hydrogen to neutralize free radical, boost energy, and improve cellular hydration.

The Role of Active Hydrogen
Our universe is composed of millions of compounds, all derived from just 106 atoms. Of these elements, hydrogen is the first and most fundamental. Hydrogen is also the most abundant element, comprising 90% of all atoms in the cosmos. In our sun and stars, hydrogen nuclei fuse to produce helium, the second element. This generates the enormous energy that powers life on earth. And just as hydrogen fuels the sun, so it fuels the human body.

The Creation of HydrogenBoost
HydrogenBoost was originally developed by Dr Patrick Flanagan. For 30 years it was Dr Flanagan’s life work to discover the health and longevity secrets of the Hunza people of the Himalayas. It is believed a much greater percentage of people there live past the age of 100, with far less of the disease that ravage the West. The locals claimed that their secret was the cloudy, mineral-rich water that rushes down from the Himalayan glaciers.

In studying the properties of this unique water, Dr Flanagan found that silica crystals dissolved in the water were able to hold negatively charged hydrogen ions (H-). These compounds are technically called silica hydrides. This makes Hunza water a power source, filled with the same active H- that powers the human body. Typically hydrogen has one positively charged proton in the nucleus and one negatively charged electron orbiting the nucleus. The two opposite charges balance each other, resulting in no charge. Active hydrogen, on the other hand , contains two electrons orbiting the nucleus, creating a negative charge. It is this active hydrogen in its charged form that the body needs to carry out its crucial functions. Dr Flanagan has recreated this silica hydride compound as HydrogenBoost.

Cellular Energy: ATP, Hydrogen and HydrogenBoost
ATP, adenosine triphosphate, is composed of three phosphates. The breaking of the bond between the second and third phosphates releases the energy to power virtually all cellular processes. Amazingly, the average person generates enough metabolic energy to produce his or her own body weight of ATP every day just to function. Every second, each of our approximately 50 trillion cells consumes and regenerates 10 million molecules of ATP!

This massive energy generation (ATP production) is fundamental core function of every human cell. Without it, basic activities such as cellular repair, and protein, enzyme, hormone and neurotransmitter synthesis would not occur. DNA repair and cell reproduction would cease. Thoughts, feelings, communication, and our ability to experience the world through our senses and change it through our actions would stop. The negative implications of poor energy generation for our health and vitality levels is significant. Many factors such as aging, poor nutrition and pollution can impede this critical energy generation.

Negatively charged electrons from hydrogen are the source of the energy needed to generate this staggering amount of ATP. This energy production that’s place in the mitochondria of the cells at the final stage of the Krebs Cycle, called the electron transport chain. Typically, the hydrogen comes from the breakdown of carbohydrates from food, which yield hydrogen as well as carbon and oxygen. But HydrogenBoost is an alternative, electron-rich source of hydrogen to power energy generation. In fact, HydrogenBoost has been shown to double the production of ATP and NADH, according to the in vitro studies. (NADH is the coenzyme form of vitamin B-3, niacin, that carries hydrogen to the production site of ATP.)

If this alone was all that HydrogenBoost (H-) could accomplish, it would be the most significant nutritional compound yet discovered. But its properties go far beyond energy generation. It is the body’s most efficient and effective antioxidant. HydrogenBoost also increases cellular hydration and the uptake of nutrients into each cell by lowering the surface tension of water (making water “wetter”). And it can improve athletic performance by lowering lactic acid levels after strenuous workouts.

Aging and Antioxidant Defense
Energy Decline: As we age, there is a decrease in our bodies’ ability to generate cellular energy — and oxidative damage may be a primary factor. Many scientists now accept the theory of aging first proposed by noted scientist Dr Denham Harman, MD, PhD, who argued that “aging changes are induced by free radical reactions, largely initiated by the mitochondria … the rate of damage to the mitochondria determines our life span.

Why is this? While oxygen is necessary for human life, the very act of breathing generates free radicals. Our mitochondria — tiny energy production plants — are the chief source of oxidants produced in our bodies. It is believed these oxidants damage the mitochondria in which they are produced, including the inner mitochondrial membrane, which is the site of ATP production. This would seriously impair the ability of mitochondria to meet cellular energy demands. The result: signs of normal aging such as impaired memory, hearing, vision and stamina.

DNA Damage: Oxidants also can damage the cell’s DNA. Hydroxyl radicals cause DNA strands to break; if breaks occur in both strands of DNA, the cell cannot repair the damage and will die. Normally, the body has mechanisms to correct or remove damaged cells. However, as we age and cellular energy production declines, the ability to correct these errors is significantly reduced. Left unrepaired, DNA errors may be passed on when cells divide. Over time, these errors can silently accumulate, leading to cellular changes that go unnoticed until body system imbalances become evident.

World’s Most Elemental Antioxidant
HydrogenBoost may be the world’s most powerful antioxidant. It is possible to measure the Oxidation reduction Potential (ORP) of any compound. This rating, which measures the number of electrons present in relation to protons, ranges from (plus) +1,200 to (minus) — 800 millivolts; the stronger an antioxidant is, the closer its ORP would be to -800. The more positive the ORP reading, the fewer the number of available electrons from active hydrogen. In chemistry, active hydrogen is defined as hydrogen with an extra electron, also known as the hydrogen anion, negative hydrogen or H-. the strongest natural antioxidants up until now, such as grape seed and green tea, have ORP’ of -100. But HydrogenBoost has an ORP of -778 millivolts, as compared to distilled water, making it the most potent natural antioxidant available today.

What’s more, HydrogenBoost is in a class by itself, compared to other antioxidants, due to its electrochemical structure. Free radicals — unstable molecules that are missing one or electrons — damage cells by taking electrons from healthy molecules to balance themselves. When other antioxidants donate electrons to quench free radicals, they in turn become reactive free radicals and require electrons from other antioxidants to become stable. The new antioxidant also requires and electron to return to stability. This process continues resulting in an inefficient and energy-consuming free radical cascade.

But HydrogenBoost’s negatively charged hydrogen molecule possesses two electrons instead of the typical one. This extra electron can be donated without generating the inefficient free radical cascade. Dr Flanagan’s profound contribution was his discovery of a method for stabilizing and delivering negatively charged hydrogen (H-). Unlike taking other antioxidants, supplementing with HydrogenBoost provides a net gain of free radical-quenching electrons into the system.

Additional Health Benefits
HydrogenBoost has been the subject of additional positive research:

Increases Cellular Hydration:
Water is important to cells, interstitial fluids (surrounding joints, muscles and organs), and the matrix of blood. As the body’s primary fluid, water serves as a solvent for nutrients. Since water is used to carry nutrients into the cell, it is theorized that increased cellular hydration also increases the bioavailability of nutrients. Water also eliminates toxins and waste products from the body. From energy production to joint lubrication, all our systems depend on water. It has been theorized that aging results in cell dehydration.

A study done by Gary Osborn and H Salinas, MD of the Texas Institute of Functional Medicines suggests that silica hydride supplements like HydrogenBoost increase intracellular, intracellular and total body water levels. It is theorized they work by decreasing water’s surface tension, which allows water to more easily enter cells and become available for use by the body.

Assists In Exercise Recovery:
During strenuous exercise, the oxygen supply to muscle cells is insufficient to meet energy demands. Muscle cells then turn to anaerobic respiration to continue to generate energy. This creates lactic acid, which diffuses into the blood, causing muscle fatigue, soreness and loss of endurance. A placebo-controlled study on six healthy males showed that blood lactate levels significantly decreased after exercise when silica hydride supplements were taken for one week before an exercise trial.
