Abundant Active Hydrogen
What!? H2 (dissolved molecular hydrogen) won't cut it?!
I am active hydrogen. Only atoms can handle it! Sometimes, you just have to go it alone!
|An abundance of active hydrogen is generated when tap water passes through the Sosei Water Generator. "Active hydrogen" (atomic symbol "H") is hydrogen that exists alone. H2 is molecular hydrogen, not active hydrogen. Molecular hydrogen is highly acidic and bonds with active oxygen, thought to be the cause of many ailments. Atomic active hydrogen can convert active oxygen to water (H2O). It is known that the world-famous water found in caves in Nordenau, Germany is rich in active hydrogen. According to test results, the amount of active hydrogen contained in Sosei Water is from 2 to 10 times this amount. Be advised, however, that the value listed as the amount of active hydrogen in a quantity of water may actually be the amount of dissolved molecular hydrogen (molecular hydrogen) DH. Sosei Water contains only a trace amount of molecular hydrogen, while being abundant in atomic hydrogen (active hydrogen).

I am active oxygen!
H2O Now I'm just regular water!
|Active Oxygen? Active Hydrogen?
What does "active" mean?
At the risk of sounding complex, atoms are composed of electrons which revolve around a nucleus (protons/neutrons). As a matter of principle, the amount of protons and electrons in any given nucleus should be equal. Consequently, hydrogen, whose atomic number is "1", has a simple structure composed of one proton and one electron. Oxygen, whose atomic number is "8", contains eight protons separated by eight neutrons, around which eight electrons, a number equivalent to the number of protons, revolve. The higher the atomic number of an atom, the higher the number of its constituent parts. Metal atoms, which are very heavy and contain many electrons, have multiple orbital paths at varying distances from the nucleus. Atoms have a common characteristic: they are stable when there are either two or eight electrons in their outer shell. Atoms with any other number of electrons in their outer shell are thought of as unstable. Since individual hydrogen atoms only possess one electron, they often bind together to form stable H2 molecules. However, since pure hydrogen is unstable, it attempts to bind with something else and is extremely energetic, or, in other words, active. Active oxygen, on the other hand, must add one additional electron to increase its total to eight and stabilize. It is also energetic. The term "active" is used to refer to this condition. Though active hydrogen adds an electron, active oxygen takes one away, which is why active oxygen attacks foreign invaders inside the human body. Active oxygen cannot, however, differentiate between friend and foe and may increase to the point where it causes various ailments. If only there were some active hydrogen…well, you can figure out the rest for yourself. Active hydrogen is a helpful atom that reduces not only active oxygen, but anything lacking electrons to a basic state.
