Why Echo™ Hydrogen Water PPM Is Better

Why Echo™ Hydrogen Water PPM Is Better

Key takeaways:


  • The minimum therapeutic level of molecular hydrogen is .5 PPM.
  • Studies have found that consuming hydrogen rich water (HRW) with concentrations of 1.2-1.6+ PPM deliver observable health benefits.
  • Echo uses electrolysis to produce hydrogen-enriched water with 4.5 PPM.
  • Echo’s hydrogen water products give consumers control over how much hydrogen is in their water (.8-4.5 PPM).


There are so many different ways to produce hydrogen enriched water—electrolyzers, hydrogen sticks, hydrogen capsules, magnesium tablets, etc. And every process results in a different amount of hydrogen in your water. Which begs the question, “Do you know how much hydrogen gas is actually in your hydrogen-enriched water?”  


Whether you get your hydrogen water from a device, a consumable insert, or a chemical reaction, you know there’s more hydrogen in your water than in normal purified water. But how much? Let’s talk about how hydrogen content in your water is calculated and how that amount affects you.


It’s time to learn about parts per million, or PPM.


What Is PPM?

PPM is a unit that measures the concentration of a substance dissolved in another substance. In the case of hydrogen water, it tells you how many milligrams (mg) of hydrogen gas are dissolved in one liter (L) of water. Since 1 liter of water roughly equals 1 million milligrams, 1 PPM translates to 1 mg/L of hydrogen.


Does PPM matter?

Yes! Depending on the amount of dissolved hydrogen in water, you can experience varied health benefits. Essentially, you want enough PPM of hydrogen in your water to experience positive results.  


But hydrogen gas has limited solubility in water. Under normal atmospheric pressure and room temperature, the maximum achievable concentration is around 1.6 PPM. This might seem low, but research suggests it could be significant. Studies have shown that hydrogen-rich water (HRW) with concentrations between 0.5 PPM and 1.6 PPM may offer potential health benefits by combating oxidative stress in the body.


What is the therapeutic amount of hydrogen gas in water?

The generally accepted therapeutic level of molecular hydrogen gas in water is .5 PPM. However, studies suggest that water with hydrogen concentrations below 0.5 PPM might not be sufficient to produce the potential health benefits associated with HRW.


On the other hand, studies have found that consuming HRW with concentrations of 1.2 PPM to 1.6+ PPM can produce observable positive results.


So, how do you know how many PPM of molecular hydrogen is in your hydrogen water? It depends on the production method used to dissolve the hydrogen molecules and storage conditions. Every hydrogen water company does things a little differently, so PPM can vary widely across brands and products.


Echo has been able use advanced technology and processes to reach higher hydrogen PPM in their hydrogen water. Each of their products is clearly labeled with its specific PPM, so you can decide what PPM is best for you.


Why is Echo hydrogen water PPM better?

Echo™ hydrogen water machines have been tested and certified to bring you more than the therapeutic amount of hydrogen gas. Echo uses electrolysis to produce its HRW. In this process, electricity passes through water, splitting H2O molecules into hydrogen gas (H2) and oxygen gas (O2). Once the water molecule is split, hot oxygen is released into the environment, the hydrogen dissolves, and the hydrogen eventually mixes it in with the purified water.


In normal water, any bubbles you see are naturally occurring oxygen molecules from turbulence and normal aeration. But in hydrogen-enriched water, the bubble you see in your water are actually hydrogen gas molecules.


With this process, Echo is able to produce hydrogen-enriched water with 4.5 PPM—much higher than the therapeutic amount. Which means it offers more health benefits like:


  •     Reduced oxidative stress and inflammation
  •     Improved gut health
  •     Increased energy
  •     Improved brain function
  •     Lowered athletic fatigue
  •     Better sleep
  •     And faster recovery


But with Echo, you also have control over how much hydrogen is in your water. Not everyone needs 4.5 PPM of molecular hydrogen in their water to feel their best. Which is why Echo provides several products and cycle options, so you can choose the hydrogen PPM that’s right for you:


Echo Go Water Bottle (9.5 oz)

  •     .8 PPM with a 3-minute cycle
  •     3.0 PPM with a 10-minute cycle


Echo Go+ Water Bottle (10 oz)

  •     2.5 PPM with a 5-minute cycle
  •     4.5 PPM with a 10-minute cycle


Echo Water Pitcher (57 oz)

  •     1.6 PPM with a 20-minute cycle


Echo Ultimate Hydrogen Water Machine (1,000 gallons)

  •     1.6 PPM


Not only do these options allow you to choose the amount of hydrogen that’s best for you, you can also choose how much water you want to make each day.


Another important thing to remember is that hydrogen water loses its potency over time. It has a 3-5 hour half-life, which means it loses half of the original hydrogen gas molecules in 3-5 hours. After 6-8 hours, the hydrogen-enriched water will no longer offer health benefits because the majority of the hydrogen will be depleted.


These numbers are based on you storing your hydrogen water in a sealed container. If you leave the hydrogen water in an open container, the hydrogen molecules will leave the water more quickly.


While the ideal therapeutic amount of hydrogen in water is still debatable, we do know for certain that .5 PPM is the minimum amount needed to offer health benefits to hydrogen-water drinkers. Which is why Echo uses proven and reliable techniques to ensure their products offer enough PPM of hydrogen to improve how your body and brain function.
