Hydrogen - Deuterium Depleted Water

What is hydrogen and deuterium depleted water?

Hydrogen, or H1, is the lightest element in the periodic table. In nature, hydrogen atoms tend to bond with other atoms. For example, when two hydrogen atoms bond, they form molecular hydrogen or H2. When H2 bonds with a single oxygen atom, this becomes water – commonly known as H2O. For many years, scientists have been investigating the considerable health benefits of hydrogen-enriched water. In fact, the Japanese have been drinking, even bathing in ‘Shin’nooru solution’ as it is known, since the 1960s.

Our bodies develop free radicals (unstable molecules that are formed when atoms gain or lose electrons) due to stress, pollution, unhealthy diets and certain lifestyle choices. Excessive free radicals contribute to the breaking down of our DNA, ribonucleic acid and proteins, leading to cell damage and disease. Learning to neutralize and balance free radicals is key to reducing oxidative stress and maintaining good physical and mental health.
Hydrogen molecules are extremely light and small. This facilitates their rapid diffusion into the body. Once absorbed into the bloodstream,
they can activate antioxidant enzymes and target the most harmful free radicals in our bodies, converting them into water. By penetrating the cell membrane and nucleus, molecular hydrogen can repair and protect our DNA, enhancing mitochondrial health.

Deuterium is one of three forms (or isotopes) of hydrogen – the others being protium and tritium. The nucleus of a deuterium atom has one proton and one neutron which doubles the mass of the hydrogen atom, making it twice as heavy. When protium and deuterium combine with oxygen, they form water molecules. The level of deuterium present in most natural waters on Earth is 150 ppm (parts per million). That means that for every 1,000,000 atoms of hydrogen, there are 150 atoms of deuterium. So when we drink 1 litre of drinking water, we ingest 150 ppm of deuterium which corresponds to 318 milligrams of ‘heavy’ water.

Deuterium exists in our bodies naturally. It contributes to growth, energy storage and metabolism. However, too much deuterium interferes in biological processes and over time, it is known to damage the mitochondria (the ‘powerhouses’ of cells) causing cellular dysfunction, damage to DNA, aging and low metabolism. Deuterium accumulation is also thought to contribute to a rise in cancer and metabolic diseases. The human organism can deplete some deuterium itself, but the body’s ability to do that decreases with the age, if weakened by illness, or deficient in Vitamin D. So how can we remove excess deuterium from our bodies? There are several tried and tested methods which include regulating our diet, improving sleep quality, exposure to sunlight and cold, taking regular exercise, and of course, drinking DDW.
