​Demonstrating the Presence of Antioxidants with H2Blue

H2Blue is a reagent designed to detect the presence of dissolved hydrogen gas, the therapeutic antioxidant in ionized water (as well as water from other devices which produce hydrogen-rich water). In the presence of dissolved hydrogen gas (H2), the molecules contained in H2Blue bond with the dissolved H2 gas molecules, causing the H2Blue molecules to turn "clear". When a drop of H2Blue is added to water containing an adequate level of dissolved H2 ( > 0.1ppm), the drop turns clear almost immediately. So-called "antioxidant" bottled waters will not cause H2Blue to turn clear if they do not contain dissolved hydrogen gas.

​Insuring Peak Performance of H2 Water Devices with H2Blue

When hydrogen water devices are new, they may produce good levels of dissolved hydrogen gas (H2). But, as calcium contained in the source water begins to accumulate on the electrodes and plumbing, the dissolved hydrogen levels can begin to drop, sometimes in as little as a few weeks. By using H2Blue to measure dissolved H2 levels, you can be assured that your device is performing at peak levels. H2Blue can also be used to measure the dissolved H2 levels in water produced by other devices including hydrogen tablets, magnesium sticks, and non-electric counter-top hydrogen-water generators.

Package Description for H2Blue

The H2Blue bottle contains 10 mL of reagent and will dispense approximately 400 drops (a typical test for dissolved hydrogen gas will take between 4 and 10 drops). Since bottle capacity is approximately 13 mL, it will not be completely full when received (bottles are filled to 10 mL +/- 0.1 mL using precision dispensing equipment). H2Blue comes in an HDPE plastic bottle with a child-resistant cap. The H2Blue bottle comes stored in a plastic graduated beaker with a screw cap. The beaker is used to measure the precise volume of hydrogen water (6 mL) required for accurate testing of dissolved H2 levels. H2Blue ​should be stored in a cool, dry place, and should be used within 12 months of purchase.

H2Blue pH Range

H2Blue pH Range H2Blue has been tested for performance accuracy in the pH range of 4 to 11. Although H2Blue may still detect dissolved H2  outside of this range, results may be skewed or reaction times altered.  

H2Blue and Staining

H2Blue contains methylene blue, a compound used as a biological tissue dye. Therefore, H2Blue can stain any surface it touches (possibly permanently, depending on porosity). It is recommended that surrounding surfaces be protected from inadvertent splashing when using it.  Use of a mild abrasive cleanser will usually remove the stain. Use soap & water to remove from skin.
