Water on Mars?

Black veins of mysterious matter flowing sinuously through mountainous Mars? It must be water, right? Yes! Where do I sign up for a Mars One mission? Not so fast, Mars water is not the type that can sustain healthy human life. It is a briny, perchlorate water, too salty to drink and too perchlorate (a component of rocket fuel and fireworks that shuts down our thyroid) can make the average Mars visitor very sick, maybe even dead.

We have much better drinking water options here on earth. We have spring water, mineral water, de-ionized water, reverse osmosis water, raw water, rain water, snow water, and we even have H2 hydrogen water. Hydrogen water? More about that later. We have distilled water—water that that has been returned to steam and re-condensed to remove all impurities. Many people regard distilled water is the purest water on earth. We have filtered water—water purged of chlorine to make it taste better. We have hard water, soft water. It is generally recognized by the research community that hard water is much healthier than soft water. For more information on the potential health benefits of hard, magnesium based, water please feel free to reference this International Journal of Preventive Medicine study. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3775162/

Thanks to modern science, we now have the option of instantly boosting any form of water with hydrogen. When water has been enriched with H2 hydrogen rich water, the body can adjust itself to the next level of detoxification.

Studies have shown that hydrogen exercises its positive effects in three primary methods.

1. It hastily alters toxic oxygen radicals to water (H2 +2! OH”2H2O).

2. It sustains the proper levels of other valuable antioxidants like Super Oxide Dismutase and Glutathione.

3. H2 improves cell signaling, enzyme metabolism and gene expression.

Because exposure to UVA/UVB sun, exercise, pollutants modifies oxygen molecules into single unpaired electrons. This sets up a negative chain reaction of free radicals looking to wrench electrons off of other molecules causing that molecule to become free radicals which causes the new free radical to go looking for an electron and so on and so forth. As our bodies accumulate free radicals over time we erode, much the same way as iron rusts away to dust.

 Hydrogen gas is also the tiniest molecule in the universe—roughly 50% smaller than oxygen—which is what allows it to enter deeply into cell mitochondria. This tininess also allows it to easily pass through the blood brain barrier. Hydrogen gas, H2, when bound to an oxygen molecule becomes H2O. This is why it can be dissolved into the water in its gasiform.

Hydrogen enriched water greedily searches out free radical oxygen molecules such as those that create severe lipid peroxidation. Lipid peroxidation is when oxygen radicals raid electrons from lipids (fats) leaving cell walls tough and resistant to nutrients and enzymes.
