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?
Active Ingredients: Pure magnesium
Other Ingredients: Dextrose, DL-malic acid, tartaric acid, adipic acid, sodium stearyl fumarate.
