To confirm the antioxidative effect of hydrogen water drinking, the participants were divided into two groups, purified water (PW) drinking group (n=20) and hydrogen water (HW) drinking group (n=20) because of cross test in each 10 in a group. Purified water (pH 6.9, +432mV) was produced only by physical filtering using commercial carbon filter, and hydrogen water (Few Hydrogen Rich WaterTM, Hayannamoo Beverage Co., Ltd., Korea) was used in this experiment (pH 7.5, -650mV, hydrogen 1.5ppm). Fifty uL of blood was collected before drinking water, at 1 and 2 minutes after drinking 12mL/kg. ROS in blood was examined using FORT test kit. ROS was showed lower tendency in HW group than PW group after drinking, and especially lowest tendency in a minute (p<0.01) and 5 minutes (p<0.05). But, there is no the antioxidative effect in purified water. Consequentially, drinking hydrogen water is useful to remove free radicals, ROS.
