MAXIMIZING HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS—MEGAHYDRATE AND ACTIVE H2 ULTRA—WITH pH ADJUST ALKALINIZING FORMULA

Fred Liers PhD pH adjust hydrogen supplementsToday, I talk about hydrogen supplements with a twist. Specifically, I discovered that a unique combination of three products—MegahydrateActive H2 Ultra, and pH ADJUST Alkalinizing Formula—provides surprising benefits. I put this combination, or concoction, into water to produce a hydrogen-infused drink with potent antioxidant quenching capacity that also rapidly alkalinizes the body (increasing pH levels and buffering acids), and provides the important minerals potassium and magnesium.

Combining hydrogen supplements with pH ADJUST creates a hydrogen-infused drink giving you benefits from 1) Two types of hydrogen, hydride (H-) and molecular hydrogen (H2) with antioxidant and energizing properties, 2) Increased pH levels (greater alkalinity) to balance pH levels, 3) Bicarbonates helping buffer acids and replenish bicarbonate reserves in the body, and 4) Essential minerals (potassium, magnesium) in bio-available forms.

In practical terms, this drink is energizing, anti-aging (party due to free-radical quenching effects), hydrating, and powerfully alkaline-forming! What this means for you might be a revolutionary drink that by giving your body all the antioxidant benefits of hydrogen plus increasing your pH levels turns can significantly improve multiple aspects of health.

By buffering acidity and making you alkaline, this drink can improve things like the strength of bones and teeth (via buffering and remineralization), supports kidney health (as kidneys are responsible for your bicarbonate reserves), boosts oxygenation (and thereby supports easier breathing) because alkaline cells hold more oxygen, and stops or reduces acid indigestion, acid reflux, and other acid-related problems. That could be just the beginning of the benefits you might receive because increasing your pH levels and normalizing alkaline conditions (i.e., pH 7.35–7.45) positively impacts many systems in the body.

WHY COMBINE pH ADJUST AND HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS?

pH Adjust, Megahydrate, and Active H2 Ultra are good supplements when used by themselves. That is, they work well as stand alone supplements. But I have found the combination of all three offers maximum antioxidant, alkalization, buffering, and mineralization benefits.

pH Adjust maximizes the effects of hydrogen supplements by boosting alkalinity and buffering capacity through the inclusion of effective, natural forms of important minerals and bicarbonates, including: potassium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate, potassium glycinate, and sodium bicarbonate.

SYNERGY: HOW EACH PRODUCT CONTRIBUTES TO THE DRINK

There are potent synergistic effects to the combination of all three products. In particular, using both hydrogen negative ions (H-) or hydride and molecular hydrogen (H2) creates cascade effects in which hydrogen ions “recycle” themselves as antioxidants. The addition of pH Adjust brings its own set of benefits.

MEGAHYDRATE provides hydride or hydrogen negative ions (H-), also known as anions, that act significantly as antioxidants. These hydrogen ions can last up to three weeks in water. In the body, after the H- has donated its electron, it becomes simply “H” and proceeds to pair with another hydrogen atom to form H2 (molecular hydrogen), thereby continuing to exert free-radical quenching action. This is a major benefit of consuming H- in the quantities provided by Megahydrate.

ACTIVE H2 ULTRA provides molecular hydrogen (H2) directly into the body in significant amounts. Molecular hydrogen offers many benefits to the body, especially antioxidant benefits. Being an extremely small molecule, molecular hydrogen can enter into the smallest cellular compartments, including the nucleus of the cell, a place where most antioxidants are too large to enter) where it can exert its antioxidant capabilities. Molecular hydrogen actually provides a wide range of health benefits. (See the Molecular Hydrogen Institute (MHI) website for more information.)

pH ADJUST Alkalinizing Formula provides effective alkalinizing and buffering functions, as well as minerals (like potassium and magnesium) and bicarbonates needed for health. It is a fluffy, white powder that mixes easily in water, teas, coffee, and other liquids. It is formulated to rapidly increase pH levels, and acts as a buffering agent to balance pH in the body.

pH Adjust was created by my father, Dr. Hank Liers, HPDI’s founder and formulator of all “Dr. Liers Original” supplements. Dr. Hank been designing effective nutritional supplements since before 1988, the year he founded HPDI.

ACID-BASE BALANCE CRITICAL FOR HEALTH

Acid-base balance is critical in the body, where a pH level of 7.35–7.45 must be maintained. Modern diets and lifestyles tend to be acidifying for the body. Diets high in animal foods that are not adequately balanced with vegetable foods lead to acidity. Other factors include overconsumption of grains, alcohol, and other acid-forming foods. Stress can also play a role due too the acidifying effects of stress hormones like cortisol.

Moreover, the aging process itself depletes bicarbonate reserves. As noted, pH Adjust contains bicarbonates that help replenish bicarbonate reserves necessary for buffering acids. Finally, a significant portion of the population has low intake of potassium and magnesium, which pH Adjust includes as part of its design.

pH Adjust also includes sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), which is a well known acidity buffer and alkalinizer. For users, advantages of pH Adjust over pure sodium bicarbonate include reduced sodium intake, improved taste, and the provision of potassium and magnesium.

POTASSIUM & MAGNESIUM FOR HEALTH

Potassium is critical in the body not only for alkalinity, but also for its role in the sodium-potassium pump which is important in the production of cellular energy (ATP) and for preventing too high levels of sodium from entering cells.

Magnesium is essential in the body and plays a role in wide range of functions, including cellular energy production, immune function, muscle and connective tissue health, and more than 400 enzyme reactions.

pH ADJUST is a highly effective buffering formula, which tends to bring pH levels (low or high) back into the optimal range (7.35-7.45). This buffering capacity means users can both avoid acidosis (high acidity) and alkalosis (high alkalinity).

MAKE THE DRINK

OPTIMIZE MEGAHYDRATE & ACTIVE H2 ULTRA BY ADDING pH ADJUST

Start with 8–16 ounces of fresh, purified water. Add 1–2 scoops of pH ADJUST, 1–2 capsules (or 1-2 scoops) of MEGAHYDRATE, and 1–2 ACTIVE H2 ULTRA tablets. Add the Active H2 Ultra tablets last, and let them effervesce completely (about 1 minute) before drinking.

This alkaline-forming, hydrogen-infused water is best taken on an empty stomach. It is ideal to drink in the morning or the afternoon (away from food). Allow at least 15–30 minutes before eating, or see what works for you. I sometimes eat light foods 10 minutes after taking this drink.

I recommend testing your pH levels (salivary and/or urinary) using pH test paper (litmus paper). pH test paper gives you a way to accurately track your pH levels. You can also use it to measure the pH of foods you consume, such as hydrogen-infused water and drinks containing pH Adjust.

Note: Many HPDI customers use pH Adjust in other drinks, including tea, coffee, and ketogenic coffee. Coffee can be acidic and acid-forming beverage, so adding pH Adjust helps buffer the acidity. Many users say pH Adjust tastes mild or good in coffee, and some say it adds a certain creaminess to it.

USE THIS ALKALINIZING HYDROGEN DRINK!

The only way you will know how beneficial hydrogen-infused water with pH Adjust can be—or how well it works for you—is to make it and use it! You will likely find yourself surprised by how energizing, alkalinizing, and mineralizing it truly is for you. And how good you feel when you drink it!

Consider testing the pH of your water first using pH test paper. Many people drink highly acidic water (pH 6 or less) without realizing it. Just because your water is filtered or purified does not necessarily mean it is alkaline. pH Adjust can “fix” this problem. Other people report that their water is highly alkaline (8.0+). Either way, pH Adjust can buffer the water to put it into the range slightly alkaline range of about 7.35–7.45. If you have extremely acidic water, you might need to use two servings of pH Adjust in 8–16 ounces of water. Play with it.

Gardening for Super Health

Hank's GardenI love to grow vegetables in my backyard and have been doing so on-and-off for 50 years now. It’s such a pleasure to prepare the soil, plant the seeds/seedlings, tend them as they grow, and finally enjoy the harvest. My thumb is relatively green, so harvests have been plentiful and tasty. Possibly, something rubbed off from watching my father do his gardening. He was a very serious gardener and fed his family from the garden during WWII.

However, during the last 25 years my interest in gardening grew much more focused. As I became a designer of nutritional supplements and had to nourish my wife who had become chemically sensitive, I was keenly aware that the foods and supplements we consume are of the upmost importance.

Due to her chemical sensitivities since 1985, for example, my wife finds it necessary to eat only organically grown foods. The penalty she pays for eating any non-organic foods from the supermarket are severe joint pains all over her body! For years, I travelled 120 miles every Saturday to purchase a week’s supply of organic fruits and vegetables.

I read incessantly to understand how to be truly healthy — and because I was now house chef — how to prepare truly healthy meals. I learned about a place called Findhorn in Scotland where a group of people were growing astoundingly healthy and huge vegetables using special growing methods that I recall included something called “rock dust.”

I later learned from Rutgers University’s Firman E. Baer Report that differences in mineral content in plants grown in “good soil” versus plants grown in “poor soil” are often enormous. That is, plants grown in “good soil” can be 100 times (or more) richer in certain minerals!

After we moved to Southern Arizona in 1993, I heard from a friend about worm beds and castings and started a worm bed in our yard. Shortly thereafter, I purchased a 50 pound bag of rock dust and started using it along with a product called EM (“Effective Microorganisms”) that enhanced the soil with beneficial microorganisms. Our neighbors and gardener found it hard to believe the plants we grew were so healthy and productive! We continued enhancing the soil and enjoyed a highly productive garden for years.

Then in 2009, I built several very large raised beds so that I could control the soil more completely and purchased a 50 pound bag of rock dust (Agrowinn Minerals) from a company in Southern California (www.fertilizeronline.com). Using this rock dust along with plenty of compost I grew amazingly large and healthy vegetables such as zucchini, squash, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, parsley, etc. I used these vegetables daily in preparing salads, stir fries, soups, and other dishes.

My wife felt so good eating these garden-fresh (and mineral-rich) dishes, she thereafter refused to eat anything except meals prepared from garden produce! Now, something in my head started to churn! Our high quality garden foods make an enormous difference to the person eating them. Everything I’d read and heard about trace minerals is true: our health depends upon it!

In 2011, I hired a new employee (Linda Leigh) who runs a side business (Vermillion Wormery) raising red wiggler worms. I learned from her how to use worm castings tea (and I built another worm bed that effectively recycles all of my organic kitchen wastes). When done correctly, vermicompost tea produces a huge number of aerobic microorganisms that take up nutrients from the soil (including rock dust), and then convert them into organic forms readily available to garden plants.

More recently, I learned that in the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the Ukraine, dairy cows consuming grass fertilized with rock dust had no radiation in their milk. Yet, cows just down the road eating grass not fertilized with rock dust had radiation in their milk! This indicates when you are replete with the proper amount of trace minerals your body needs, you will NOT absorb minerals of a similar nature that are radioactive (e.g., cesium-137 and strontium-90)!

In these times, when our health is adversely affected by a broad range of environmental, nutritional, and lifestyle factors, it’s important to know you can easily grow your own super healthy foods, especially using the methods I describe (above). Growing your own organic and biodynamic foods is a major step towards creating super health for yourself, as well as for your family, friends, and pets.

As it turns out (not unexpectedly!), another benefit of gardening and farming is better immunity and health through exposure to soil microorganisms. Thus, it appears that in addition to the benefits of eating mineral-rich garden produce, simple exposure to soil microorganisms in “a little dirt” while gardening is itself a very good thing for health! For more information on this subject see our blog article entitled “A New View of the Role of Bacteria in Health“.
