    Hydrogen Inhalation Machine Safety

    Hydrogen Inhalation Machine Safety

    Is it dangerous to breathe hydrogen?


    You may be familiar with hydrogen water or have heard of a hydrogen water generator. While hydrogen water is definitely a popular way to consume hydrogen, breathing hydrogen with a hydrogen inhaler is another common mechanism of delivery. Hydrogen gas is  a powerful cell signalling molecule with potent anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Inhaling hydrogen gas with a hydrogen therapy machine allows this powerful molecule to rapidly disperse throughout your body, and is being widely studied for the treatment of a variety of health conditions.


    Inhaled hydrogen has been shown to have numerous health benefits, and has been shown to be generally safe in a large number of human and animal studies. In fact, hydrogen has been granted GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) status by the FDA, and in studies going back to the 1940s, no toxic effects of hydrogen consumption have ever been reported.


    Hydrogen is all natural- in fact we make (actually the bacteria in our gut make) up to 10L of hydrogen gas per day in our colon. This is one of the reasons that hydrogen therapy is so effective- we’re already wired to recognize it at a cellular level.


    However, not all hydrogen inhalation devices are created equal. Is your hydrogen machine safe?


    One of the things that really sets the Vital Reaction hydrogen inhalation machines apart is our commitment to safety. At Vital Reaction we sell only Miz hydrogen inhalers. Miz is actually one of the largest hydrogen inhalation device manufacturers in the world, and Vital Reaction is their only North American distributor.



    Miz hydrogen inhalers are carefully calibrated to maintain relatively low outputs of hydrogen. Our units will produce anywhere from 2-6% hydrogen, depending on the model. The machines have an internal sensor that maintains a hydrogen concentration of less than 10%.


    10% is a really important threshold.


    A recent study from the Journal of Medical Gas Research demonstrated hydrogen inhalation machines producing greater than 10% hydrogen gas pose a serious risk of explosion. A concentration greater than 15% hydrogen produced an explosion that would cause “severe damage to a user” according to the study.

    For reference, here is a list of popular hydrogen inhalation devices (from the study), and their concentrations of hydrogen gas:

    As you can see, literally every inhaler manufacturer on the market except for Miz is producing machines that generate unsafe concentrations of hydrogen gas. Only Miz designs hydrogen inhalation devices carefully calibrated to maintain safe levels of hydrogen gas, well below the 10% threshold.



    This is critically important, as hydrogen can even be ignited by static electricity in the air. Experts believe that static electricity led to the fateful Hindenburg disaster.  



    Hindenburg Explosion


    Many machines on the market advertise 99% hydrogen gas! And many of the machines on the above list produce a combination of hydrogen AND oxygen. The only thing more explosive than high concentrations of hydrogen by itself is high concentrations of hydrogen mixed with oxygen. 



    Why do these companies sell these high output machines? More hydrogen must be better, right? 






    Studies have shown that beyond a certain point, more hydrogen is not better. There is no benefit to consuming 99% hydrogen vs. 5% hydrogen, for example. Instead, what matters is dose frequency. Better to use a lower percentage device more frequently, than to use a high output device at all.



    Peak tissue saturation is achieved with our clinical model within 30 minutes- there are no benefits to adding more hydrogen once the tissues are already saturated.



    The real reason that these companies are selling high output hydrogen devices is because they’re much less expensive to make. Many of these are actually refurbished welding devices. Seriously. They just replace the igniter with a breathing apparatus.  



    If you are purchasing one of these high output hydrogen devices for your home or clinic, consult with your insurance provider. These machines are hazardous and pose a high liability risk.



    Additionally, with these high output hydrogen inhalation machines, there is a potential for asphyxiation due to insufficient oxygen levels. If you’re breathing 99% hydrogen, then there’s very little oxygen in the air you’re breathing. In contrast, Vital Reaction hydrogen inhalers mix the hydrogen gas for inhalation with ambient air, so you’re getting anywhere from 98%-94% normal air while using a Vital Reaction hydrogen inhalation machine, versus just 1% normal air with some of these other options.   



    Vital Reaction® hydrogen inhalers are the safest on the market, and pose no risk to your home, family or business. Get your hydrogen inhalation machine today!

    satisfied so far

    haven't been on long enough to really know yet but so far good!

    Hey Jenna, thanks for your feedback! Let us know if we can help or answer any questions.

    Great product!

    These are great quality hydrogen tablets. I've used them before and grabbed a couple bottles recently. I take two every single morning and sometimes after the gym. I believe their quality ranks up there with the best hydrogen tablets!

    Hey David, thanks for your feedback and being a loyal customer. Let us know if we can help or answer any questions.

    I loved.

    I loved and I'm going to continue taking it, I would only like to be the most affordable prices, it's expensive to buy a suplement every month .
    I will be aware of your promotions to continue buying it online.
    Thank you.

    Hey Mart, thanks for your support! We send out specials by email all the time so be on the look out for those.
