Frequently Asked Questions - Hydrogen Tablets

Q. How many H2 tablets should I take daily?
A. We recommend taking 1–2 tablets dissolved in any non-carbonated beverage twice per day. A twice daily dosing regimen is ideal for maximizing the beneficial effects. Feel free to use more and see what’s right for you. It is impossible to overdose on molecular hydrogen.
Q. Does it need to be taken on an empty stomach?
A. It’s ideal to take our tablets about an hour after eating. This will maximize the length of time that hydrogen will stay circulating in your system. There is no harm in taking them on an empty stomach though.
Q. What type of water is best to use to prepare my VR Tablets?
A. Any type of non-carbonated beverage will work. For best results, use purified water with a pH as close as possible to 7 (neutral). The colder the liquid, the slower the tablet dissolves. The warmer the liquid, the faster the tablet dissolves.

If you like, try dropping a tablet into some juice, lemonade, or a sports drink — whatever non-carbonated drink you prefer!
Q. How soon should I drink my Vital Reaction H2 beverage?
A. Vital Reaction H2 Tablets dissolve in under 2 minutes. A cloud of gas will be visible for a short period. For best results, drink your beverage as soon as the tablet finishes dissolving. The hydrogen will diffuse out of the liquid in about 15–20 minutes.
Q. What is the residue left in the glass?
A. This is just undissolved magnesium, and it is perfectly safe to ingest. In fact, it will just react in your stomach to create even more H2, so drink up! Sometimes the delicate chemistry of our tablets and the reaction with water leave some remnants of the magnesium, especially if the liquid is cold.
Q. Is this product natural?
A. Absolutely! The reaction between elemental magnesium and water creates molecular hydrogen (a molecule having 2 hydrogen atoms). This is the oldest and most abundant element in the universe — not much could qualify as more natural!
Q. Are there any side effects from H2?
A. In over 1000 published and peer-reviewed articles on hydrogen therapy, no side effects have been observed. Hydrogen is actually used to prevent decompression sickness at thousands of times higher concentrations than is created by our tablets. Please note that our tablets contain magnesium, and exceeding the recommended daily amount of magnesium can have associated conditions, such as diarrhea. However, exceeding that amount would mean consuming more than 40 tablets in one day (please don’t do that). There is a chance you may experience slight bloating due to drinking the H2 gas nanobubbles. If you have metallic fillings or dental hardware, you may notice a metallic sensation in your mouth. This is just due to the harmless interaction of the magnesium and any metal in your teeth.
Q. Is this the same as consuming hydrogen peroxide?
A. No, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and molecular hydrogen (H2) are completely different things. The only similarity is that they both contain the word ‘hydrogen’.

H2O2 is used as a cleaning agent and disinfectant, while H2 is an antioxidant that the body uses.
Q. Is hydrogen water or the H2 tablet explosive or flammable?
A. No, the levels of magnesium in the Vital Reaction tablet are too low to be flammable. Same with the level of hydrogen in the water created.
Q. What am I supposed to feel when I take my VR Tablets?
A. Results may vary, as each person has different levels of free radicals and oxidative stress. It typically takes around 4 weeks to start feeling benefits.
We’ve heard the following testimonials from a wide range of ages (4–80yr):
  • More energy
  • Increased focus and mental acuity
  • Less pain and inflammation
  • Improved vision
  • Improved athletic performance and endurance
  • Better hydration
  • Increase blood oxygen levels
  • Overall balance and wellbeing (homeostasis)
  • Consistent/improved sleeping patterns
  • Less hungry and better weight management
Q. What is the difference between taking magnesium vs. taking Vital Reaction Tablets?
A. Most magnesium supplements on the market will not produce hydrogen gas — they rarely feature pure magnesium. Only pure magnesium can produce hydrogen gas when reacting with water molecules.
Q. What are the ingredients in the VR Tablets?
A. Active Ingredients: Pure magnesium

Other Ingredients: Dextrose, DL-malic acid, tartaric acid, adipic acid, sodium stearyl fumarate

Frequently Asked Questions - Inhaler

Q. How much hydrogen do the Vital Reaction inhalers produce?
A. Our inhalers use an electric charge to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen is vented out, and then the hydrogen is mixed with ambient air to maintain a safe concentration of H2 gas.
Q. What kind of water should I use for Vital Reaction inhalers?
A. Distilled water must be used in the main container at the top. This is the water that gets split into hydrogen and oxygen during your therapy session.

In the second, smaller container on the side of the unit, you can just use cool tap water. This cools the hydrogen gas before it enters the body.
Q. What is the difference between your 7% Clinical inhalers and 2% H2 Mini inhalers?
A. The difference between the Clinical inhalers and the Mini inhalers is the amount of hydrogen produced over time. The Clinical inhaler will produce a little more than twice as much hydrogen in the same amount of time as the H2 Mini.

Recommended treatment time on the Clinical unit is 30-60 minutes; on the H2 Mini inhaler, 60 minutes or longer.

The Clinical unit is about 12 inches by 10 inches and weighs about 12 pounds. The H2 Mini is small enough to fit in a car cup holder, and weighs about 4 pounds.
Q. How often should I use my inhaler?
A. We recommend using your inhaler at least once per day. Feel free to use it more or less frequently and find what feels best for your body. It’s impossible to overdose on molecular hydrogen. In studies dating back to the 1940s, even at levels much higher than anything our machines produce, no toxic effects have ever been reported.
Q. What are the electrode plates made of?
Our electrodes are platinum. It’s also important to know that our machines require pure distilled water to run. Our units actually have a sensor that will not allow the machines to run if any mineral content is present. This greatly preserves the life of the electrodes in our inhalers vs. competing machines.
Q.How long does it take to feel the effects?
A. People typically start to notice benefits in as little as 20 minutes of inhalation therapy. Some people do not actually feel anything, which is okay. Even if you don’t feel anything, you will still receive the benefits of hydrogen therapy. Others have relayed effects such as an overall sense of wellness, more energy or focus, sharper vision, improved sleep quality etc.
Q. What is the benefit of using the inhaler versus the tablets?
A. The biggest difference between the tablets and the inhaler is the dosage. Essentially, the inhalers deliver an exponentially higher doge of H2 gas. For reference, 60 minutes on the Clinical inhaler is roughly the equivalent of taking an entire bottle of our molecular hydrogen tablets.

Additionally, since it is inhaled into the lungs, the hydrogen gas can diffuse into the bloodstream more quickly.
Q. How long does the hydrogen stay in the blood after an inhaler session?
A. We primarily store hydrogen in our liver. If you consume hydrogen about 40-60 minutes after eating a carbohydrate-rich meal, then it will stay in your system for about 2 hours. When taken on an empty stomach, that time is reduced to about 30 minutes.
Q. What makes your inhalation units better than the competition’s?
A. Vital Reaction sells the safest hydrogen inhalation machines on the market. Studies have shown that any machines producing an H2 concentration greater than 10% pose a risk of serious explosion. Our machines are the only devices on the market that regulate airflow to maintain safe concentrations of hydrogen gas, well under 10%. Click here to learn more about how safe Vital Reaction inhalation machines are.

Our inhalation machines each have a sensor in the main water tank to ensure distilled water is used. This preserves the lifespan of the electrodes. Most competing inhalers lack this feature, causing their machines to break down over time. Most other machines also require the use of additives (such as electrolytes) or caustic chemicals (such as lye).

Vital Reaction machines have a low cost of ownership — virtually maintenance free. All that’s required is fresh distilled water and nasal cannula (the breathing tubes). The Clinical unit comes with 8 free cannula and the H2 Mini comes with 4.

What’s more, our inhalation machines are all made in Japan and are covered by a full 1-year manufacturer’s warranty. Most competing inhalers are made in China.

We use high-performance components with a state-of-the-art approach to manufacturing. Although rare, our in-house technicians are able to troubleshoot or repair any issues with any of our machines.

Hydrogen therapy is growing rapidly in popularity. That means a lot of fly-by-night operations have popped up selling second-rate machines — and they can be quite dangerous. They often vanish leaving unfortunate customers stuck with an inferior product that often does not even work. Vital Reaction is an established company with years of experience and a lengthy track record of customer service and product excellence. Our machines are manufactured by Miz Technologies, one of the largest suppliers of electrolysis units in the world, and we are the sole distributors of Miz products in North America.

What’s more, you can pick up the phone any time and talk to a real person at Vital Reaction. Our friendly and knowledgeable service staff are here to help! Our number is (720) 464-5733.
Q.How do the Vital Reaction inhalers make hydrogen?
A. Our inhalers create hydrogen through electrolysis. It uses electricity to essentially split water molecules (H2O) into hydrogen gas (H2) and oxygen gas (O2).

Frequently Asked Questions - Dermal

Q. Can’t I just use a spray bottle?
You could use a spray bottle with hydrogen water and still experience some of the same benefits. The advantage of our Dermal Therapy Device is that our ultrasound technology makes the hydrogen water molecules much smaller — smaller than an average skin cell. This makes it easier for the hydrogen produced by our device to penetrate deep below the top layers of your skin.
Q. Can I use any hydrogen water?
A. The dermal devices work best with hydrogen water made from Vital Reaction Molecular Hydrogen Tablets. However, the device will work with any hydrogen water.
Q. How long should I use it for?
You can complete around 15–20 60-second treatments with one fill of the reservoir. Hydrogen will stay in the water for about 15–20 minutes. And our devices come programmed with a 60 second timer, as this is all that’s necessary for complete tissue saturation.
Q. How big is the Dermal Therapy Device?
The device is about 4 x 1.25 x 1.25 in. (10 x 3 x 3 cm).
Q. Do I need batteries?
No batteries are necessary. The device comes with a USB charger for the included rechargeable lithium ion batteries.
Q. Do I have to use distilled water?
No, you can use any kind of water to create the hydrogen water for the device.
Q. What if i'm not happy with the product?
A. We source products from all over the world to bring you epic offers and the lowest prices. This means sometimes you have to wait a little longer to get your order but it's always worth it!
Q. What do I do with the extra hydrogen water if I’m using tablets?
Drink it up!

Frequently Asked Questions - Grounding Mat

Q. How do I use the mat?
A. Our Grounding Mat conveniently plugs into the ground port of any electrical outlet. Just place your bare feet (or any exposed skin) on the mat to become connected instantly to the earth’s electric field. You can place the mat under your desk, on your bed, or pretty much anywhere you like to use it any time day or night. We recommend using it for at least 20 mins per day.
Q. Does it have to touch my skin?
A.Yes, the Grounding Mat needs to be in contact with your bare skin to work. It will not work if there is anything between your skin and the mat, such as socks.
Q. Can I put it under my sheet on my bed?
A. You can use it while you sleep (and many of our customers do), but your skin must be in contact with the Grounding Mat to get any benefits.
Q. What can I expect to feel?
Some of the most common benefits reported by our customers include:
  • Increased energy
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Reduced chronic pain and chronic headaches
  • Reduced general inflammation
  • Faster healing
  • Weight loss
Q. Does it help with cardiovascular disease?
A. There really hasn’t been enough research to answer this question either way. However, scientists have been actively studying other promising effects of grounding.
Q. Are there any contraindications?
A. We source products from all over the world to bring you epic offers and the lowest prices. This means sometimes you have to wait a little longer to get your order but it's always worth it!
