Rapidly Increasing Happiness Is Simple Thanks Japanese Discovery
Would you like it if you were happy every day?
Would you like it if every single day you could report that you felt great and only occasionally felt “down”?
Honestly, who wouldn’t?
Everyone’s on a quest to be happy.
And while I don’t believe the point of life is “being happy,” it’s undeniable that we care a lot about it.
Entire industries are propped up on the idea of us becoming happier. And we do all kinds of crazy things to become happier. Some of them are good for us, some of them are terrible.
The interesting thing about happiness is that as much as it can be a choice to be happy and care-free, sometimes happiness can also result from an adjustment in chemicals in our body.
I’m convinced that one of the reasons people aren’t happy every single day is owing to the constant exposure to environmental and ecological toxins that disrupt our bodies’ normal function.
Thus, I believe if we can arm ourselves to resist the toxins we can do a great deal to maintain constant states of happiness.
Be aware I’m not saying that the Japanese discovery I’m going to show you will cure neurological conditions like depression or anxiety. What I’m saying is that if you’re looking for a treatment device that helps you maintain level states of contentment while also keeping your body in tip-top shape you could benefit from this solution.
How Something As Simple as Hydrogen Water Could Help Boost Your Happiness
It may seem fantastical to say that drinking a particular kind of water could help you feel great.
But let me ask you this, how do you feel when you’re dehydrated?
That’s because water is essential for normal cell function and without water, our body will quickly suffer the consequences.
As I’ve written about in other articles, not all water is equal.
Municipal water, water that comes straight from the tap and that 98% of Americans rely on for hydration, is one of the worst kinds of water to hydrate with.
Easily one of the biggest reasons it’s so bad for you is that every milliliter you drink contains dozens, (if not hundreds) of environmental toxins that disrupt cell function.
Another reason it’s not ideal is that it doesn’t deliver concentrated sources of antioxidants.
In particular, it’s low in one of nature’s most abundant antioxidants: hydrogen.
Hydrogen may be one of the most abundant elements in the known universe, but it’s in shockingly low supply in water sources.
Because we depend on water for our very life, the fact this source of vital nutrients lacks one of nature’s most pervasive (and most potent) antioxidants is problematic.
While it’s impossible to tell what water looked like in the past, I believe there’s good reason to believe that hydrogen levels in water have fallen dramatically thanks to the industrialization of water distribution.
I’m not pointing fingers here and saying anyone did anything wrong, I’m simply highlighting a downside to water treatment that could affect your health.
Since modern water sources are low in hydrogen, and most people drink contaminated water sources, it’s reasonable to conclude that every ounce of water we drink could be affecting cell performance, which in turn could be negatively affecting a host of bodily functions.
And one of the most surprising things “bad water” could be affecting is our mood.
These observations are what recently led a team of Japanese researchers to investigate the impact water infused with hydrogen would have on mood. Their findings weren’t just surprising, they were inspired enough to convince me to start offering hydrogen infused water to patients in an attempt to help people feel happy on a regular basis.
Hydrogen Water for Happiness?
If you didn’t already know this, hydrogen molecules are one of the smallest molecules in the known universe. Their small size allows them to move freely throughout the body.
Their ability to travel in and out of cells while reducing free-radical activity has encouraged professionals to call hydrogen one of the best antioxidants known to man.
Recent advancements in technology have allowed us to take a normal glass of water and run it through a machine that will “dump” extra hydrogen into water for consumption.
As soon as someone drinks hydrogen water, trillions of hydrogen molecules surge through the body and the deluge of hydrogen impacts most of your body in a matter of minutes.
The net effect that this has is astounding.
It doesn’t just help to protect your cells; it helps to regulate your nervous system.
In late 2017, Japanese scientists conducted a rigorous and randomized double-blinded placebo controlled trial (these are the best-quality studies) to ascertain how hydrogen water could help regulate mood.
Giving participants low-dose hydrogen water (just 1.8 parts per million) twice daily they were able to determine that hydrogen-rich water had a profound effect on the quality of life of the subjects.
The researchers observed that hydrogen water helped to decrease the activation of the participant’s sympathetic nervous system.
The reason that’s important is that the sympathetic nervous system is in charge of your body’s fight or flight reaction.
When the sympathetic nervous system remains switched on for longer periods than necessary it will lead to elevated stress, excessive fatigue, inflammation, poor blood sugar control, weight gain, and a downward trend in mood.
Researchers noted that the twice-daily administration of hydrogen water actually didn’t just dampen sympathetic response but also helped to restore the subjects’ parasympathetic nervous system, which is the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for “balance”.
This led them to conclude that hydrogen water was a useful tool for helping to keep people happy.
They wrote this in the journal Medical Gas Research where they published their study:
“In conclusion, HRW administration for 4 weeks in adult volunteers improved mood, anxiety, and autonomic nerve function, suggesting that hydrogen water administration may offer an effective method to reinforce the quality of life and maintain good health.”
Since they published their study millions of people have used hydrogen water.
And a significant number of these people have reported that hydrogen water helps them feel better.
I believe so strongly the administration of hydrogen water can help to improve mood and enhance the quality of life that I had our office invest in a hydrogen water machine.
While hydrogen water is available in stores all over (typically health food stores like Whole Foods, Natural Grocers, etc.) it’s not exactly cheap.
By investing in a machine here for the office we’re able to sell it to patients for significantly less.
Hydrogen water in the stores would cost you $3-$4 for a liter.
We have it for just $1 a liter.
The next time you’re in the store be sure to request a few bottles and we’ll get them made for you on the spot.
