Injury & Acute Event Recovery
Hydrogen-Rich Hydrotherapy vs RICE Protocol
In this pilot study on pro soccer players who suffered grade two ankle tears, bathing in hydrogen water from our high dose hydrogen tablets designed for the bath led to significant improvements in recovery and was shown to be equivalent to the standard RICE Protocol (Rest, Ice, Compress and Elevate). RICE is widely used for its’ benefits in the first 24hrs, however, it may slow down the rate of healing due to decreased blood plasma flow. Hydrogen water bathing was showing to be as effective, and prior research suggests hydrogen water bathing increases blood plasma flow and speeds up healing and recovery.

In an exploratory case study on a pro soccer player who had suffered loss of consciousness after a head on head collision, hydrogen water from our tablets demonstrated it may be a safe and effective treatment for concussion recovery. More research is needed.
Topical Hydrotherapy for Soft Tissue Injury
In an exploratory case study on a pro soccer player who suffered a grade two ankle tear, bathing in hydrogen water from our high dose hydrogen tablets designed for the bath led to significant improvements in recovery. This prompted a full randomized controlled trial comparing the high concentration hydrogen water therapy against RICE protocol, which is the standard treatment and an abbreviation for rest, ice, compress elevate.
