The Power of Molecular Hydrogen in Water
Hydrogen-Rich Water has garnered attention and sparked research across the around the world over the past few years. Molecular Hydrogen (H2) serves as an antioxidant that aids in averting cell damage, inflammation, protecting DNA, and suppressing unregulated cell growth.
Pure H2O, naturally found as pure rainwater, poses a challenge as the hydrogen element is not readily accessible to the body. The reason is that hydrogen is bonded to the oxygen, leaving no Free Hydrogen. This is where Hydrogen-Rich water comes to play, providing Hydrogen that is easier for the cells to utilize. Hydrogen-Rich water is generated via a simple chemical reaction between water and Magnesium: Mg + 2H2O → Mg (OH)2 + H2.
A myriad of scientific studies have highlighted the remarkable potential benefits of hydrogen-rich water:
Benefits of Hydrogen-Rich Water
Clinical studies reveal that consuming Hydrogen-rich water can elevate antioxidant capacity, directly shielding the mitochondria and aiding in the improvement of mitochondrial disorders. It also triggers energy metabolism as gauged by oxygen consumption & CO2 production.
Hydrogen-rich water has proven to enhance antioxidant levels as a preventive strategy for Metabolic Syndrome. It can also improve lipid and glucose metabolism and reduces insulin resistance in Diabetes & Pre-diabetic patients by lowering LDL (Bad Cholesterol) levels.
A study involving patients with rheumatoid arthritis demonstrated that by consuming .5 L/day of hydrogen water for 4 weeks, all patients with early rheumatoid arthritis reached remission, and 20% became symptom-free.
In an experiment involving young athletes, Hydrogen Rich Water consumption reduced lactic acid accumulation during intense exercise and diminished muscular fatigue.
A study in healthy physically active males indicated that daily consumption of hydrogen-rich water for 14 days increased the pH of the blood pre and post-exercise, with no adverse side effects reported at 2000ml/ day. The research inferred that drinking hydrogen water is safe and may have an alkalising impact on the blood.
Molecular Hydrogen's ability to shield nuclear DNA and the mitochondria from oxidative damage is believed to have positive effects on chronic diseases like cancer and the aging process. Additional studies have shown that human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) grown in a hydrogen-rich medium suppressed both oxidative stress and cellular aging. This study concluded that drinking hydrogen-rich water may increase longevity in humans.
Numerous animal studies have shown that Molecular Hydrogen exhibits anti-inflammatory effects.
A study on mice with type 2 diabetes and obesity indicated that hydrogen water significantly reduced fatty liver. It also decreased levels of glucose, insulin & triglycerides by stimulating energy metabolism.
H2 treatment in mouse studies has shown to extend the replicative lifespan of bone marrow stem cells by reducing oxidative stress.
Long-term consumption of hydrogen-rich water has been found to regulate body fat and weight in rats, despite no change in food and water intake.
Drinking hydrogen water prevented the development of Parkinson's disease in rats. The hydrogen water reduced oxidative stress and prevented cognitive impairment associated with dementia and Parkinson's disease.
Lastly, a study on human patients with Parkinson’s disease found that the intake of hydrogen water reduces neurotoxic damage, which aligns with previous studies on animals.
Anti-Oxidant Benefits of Negative Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) in Water
A significant feature of FSA's 6 Stage High Alkaline Magnesium & Hydrogen Rich Portable RO Filter System that outshines regular tap water is the Negative Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) in the water it produces. Water possessing a positive ORP value encourages oxidation, whereas water with a negative ORP value manifests an anti-oxidant effect. The Hydrogen Rich cartridge not only produces free hydrogen but also promotes an anti-oxidant effect on water, demonstrated by its negative ORP value. Water rich in anti-oxidants and with a negative ORP can supply electrons, potentially neutralizing free radicals in the body.

Stage 3: T300 Hydrogen-Rich High Alkaline Mineral Filter (GT6-32) (Replace every 12 Months)
The T300 Filter is a supreme Post RO filter. One of the unique alkalising filters globally, it can maintain a consistent pH between 8.5 and 10.5 over a 12 month period. It comprises Sub-nanometer minerals, Magnesium, and Potassium to ensure superior pH stability in the high alkaline range. The filter can produce Hydrogen-Antioxidants through the Hydroxide-Alkaline pH acidity balance of the Magnesium & Potassium media as it dissolves into the water.
Stage 4: Life Energy Ceramic (FAR Infrared) (GT6-11) (Replace every 2 Years)
The Life Energy Ceramic exudes Far Infrared Rays that ionise and activate water molecules, potentially improving blood circulation and overall health, as water composes over 70% of the human body's mass.
Stage 5: 100% Activated Coconut Carbon Filter (GT6-21) (Replace every 12 Months)
This second 100% Activated Coconut Carbon Filter excels in extracting tastes and odours, while imparting a naturally "sweet" flavour into the water.
Stage 6: Inline Magnetic Water Conditioner (Never Needs Replacing)
Numerous scientific studies over the decades have proven the positive effects of magnetization on water's physicochemical properties, from reducing limescale growth in pipes to enhancing the oxygen level in water, leading to improved hatch rates in fish eggs.
Important Notes About the FSA 6 Stage Portable Filter System
As this system is is a portable unit, it's important to mention that it isn't designed to be permanently plumbed into a mains water supply. It's made to be connected to a mains water supply as needed, and then disconnected when not in use. Being a portable reverse osmosis system it will typically produce water at a slower rate than normal tap water (i.e. most RO membranes produce water at a rate of 8 litres per hour). It is also important to note that it also produces wastewater during the filtration process, so you'll need a drain or secondary container to collect the waste water when filtering. For every litre of filtered water, it produces between 1 to 1.5 litres of wastewater, which can be safely discarded or repurposed for other uses, such as watering plants but as it is waste water and contains contaminants, it is not suitable for drinking.
Using this portable RO system requires a few a few basic items: a faucet (mains water) to connect the system to (a standard 22mm Female Thread / 24mm Male Thread tap diverter adaptor is included), a vessel or container to store the filtered water in, and somewhere for the waste water to go, such as a drain or secondary container. With these basic essentials, anyone can start enjoying the benefits of high-quality, filtered water when on the go.

Deciphering Fluoride Concerns
Fluoride is a globally discussed topic, sparking debates throughout Australia and beyond. Despite varying opinions on water fluoridation, the reality is that it exists in our drinking water.
To safeguard against fluoride consumption, a practical and efficient method is Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Filtration. Fluoride, recognized as a neurotoxin in numerous credible US studies, poses potential health risks outweighing the purported dental benefits. Chronic diseases are, in fact, associated with fluoridated water.
Fluoride, being a mineral salt, cannot be removed via standard filtration. The solution lies in RO filtration that employs 0.0001-micron membranes, adept at filtering out fluoride along with other water impurities.
Unpacking Reverse Osmosis Filtration Myths
It's worth addressing two recurring misrepresentations surrounding RO filtration. One asserts that RO water is "too pure," and the other claims that RO filtration removes health-beneficial minerals.
The "too pure" perception is associated with the pH of the water and its minimal mineral and impurity content, resulting in potentially acidic water not suited for drinking. The solution? A post filter for Alkalizing or Mineralizing the water.
Misinterpretations about "valuable minerals" often arise from sellers lacking comprehensive understanding. Minerals indeed benefit us when consumed via organic food, not water. Therefore, the notion of "re-mineralizing" water via filtration lacks biological benefit.
Research reveals that drinking water with a pH below 7 results in higher total dissolved solids (TDS) levels in the consumer's urine. Two primary culprits for low-pH water are:
- Reverse Osmosis
- Water Distillers for drinking water
Additional low-pH contributors include soft drinks and alcohol.
Water's chemistry violently adjusts to acidity when minerals are removed. This is because the buffers usually preventing this shift have been extracted. Rainwater, which is nearly pure and acidic, experiences a similar process until it reaches the ground and absorbs earth minerals, balancing its pH.
Despite this understanding, it's vital to clarify that drinking water doesn't contain valuable minerals unless they're organic, which are typically not used for pH correction. Mostly, pH Neutralizing cartridges contain inorganic materials like rock, known as mineral stones, which release inorganic calcium or magnesium that our bodies can't effectively absorb.
Unmasking the Real Benefits of Water Filtration
Filter Systems Australia approaches water filtration based on logic, not myths or magic. While "living water products" with purportedly miraculous benefits are on the market, it's vital to remember the body's primary need: hydration. The best hydration comes from clean, chemical-free, impurity-free H2O—just as nature intended.
However, the filtration process that strips water of its impurities also turns it acidic. The remedy requires a compromise—introducing some minerals back into the water. While these non-organic minerals aren't beneficial to our bodies, they help achieve an alkaline pH crucial for our health.
Considering these nuances, we've developed a system that meets all health criteria. It provides High Alkaline Water, Hydrogen Rich Water, and a great-tasting, Chemical and Toxin Free, Fluoride Free experience.
Essential Guidelines for Water Sanitation in Rain and Bore Water Sources
The safety and quality of your water are paramount. Therefore, it is crucial not to use or consume microbiologically unsafe water or water whose quality is unknown without performing adequate disinfection first.
Important Information about Rain and Bore Water and Reverse Osmosis Systems
The most effective functioning of Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems is observed when used with chlorinated (Mains/Town) water. The chlorine in the water plays a vital role in eliminating bacteria, fungi, and yeast. Failure to sanitize the water properly can lead to biofouling of the RO membrane. This means that a colony of bacteria, fungus, or slime could start growing within the membrane. Consequently, this could spoil your filter system and damage the RO membrane beyond repair.
The same warning applies to rainwater and tank water sources. If you're planning to use RO to filter groundwater sources like a bore or spring, a comprehensive water analysis must be carried out beforehand. Please note that we do not advise using any combination of filters to make untreated and untested water sources (such as river, stream, creek, lake, or dam water) safe to drink.
Safeguard Against Bacteria, Fungi, and Yeast
Bacteria such as E. Coli can thrive in stagnant water, leading to harmful diseases if ingested. For this reason, we recommend using a product like Hydrosil Ultra 7.5% Water Sanitiser for treating rainwater and potable bore water*. This ensures protection against microbiological contamination or biofouling in your pipework and/or filter system.
HydroSil is a food-grade water sanitiser, silver-activated and based on hydrogen peroxide. Its function is to oxidize bacteria, yeast, fungi, and viruses without leaving any hazardous residues. It sanitizes and secures your tanks and water storage devices, thus rendering rainwater and potable bore water safe and suitable for human consumption. Unlike many sterilisers in today's market, HydroSil is not chlorine-based. It is non-toxic and safe for use in your home and around your family.
Dosage Guidelines: HydroSil
To effectively sanitize your water, HydroSil should be dosed at a rate of 200mL per 1000L of water. For smaller tanks, this scales down to 20mL per 100L.
Purchase Hydrosil Ultra 7.5%
