Can Alkaline, Hydrogen-Rich Water Help You Sleep Better?

Alkaline, Hydrogen-Rich Water for Better Sleep

Sleep issues keep millions up at night struggling to fall asleep. Your’e not tossing and turning alone. Millions are deprived of a good night’s sleep which is crucial to your health. While there’s no cure, scientific studies suggest alkaline, hydrogen-rich water is helpful to improve your sleep routine. 

What is Alkaline, Hydrogen-Rich Water?

Alkaline, hydrogen-rich water is created by a water ionizer. It first filters the water, then uses electricity to separate regular tap water into alkaline (mineral-rich) and acidic components. The enriched hydrogen alkaline water with anti-oxidants is free contaminants and is conveniently located right in your own home.

Improved Sleep with yhe Power of Hydrogen

Studies show that digestive health and sleep are connected. The hydrogen’s antioxidant properties of alkaline, hydrogen-rich water with an abundance of antioxidants may benefit sleep in two ways:

  • Reduction of Oxidative Stress: Sleep repairs and regenerates the body. Oxidative stress can create an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants and disrupt this process which may help reduce oxidative stress, creating a more optimal environment for sleep.
  • Better Gut Health: The gut microbiome, which is the community of bacteria in your intestines, plays a major role in sleep. Improvement in gut bacteria balance has been shown to aid in better sleep.Some studies suggest that hydrogen water may improve gut bacteria balance, potentially promoting better sleep indirectly.

More Research

Even healthy people without digestive problems benefitted from drinking drinking alkaline ionized water from a water ionizer. Gastrointestinal health improvement wasn’t needed but a high proportion of participants reported better sleep after drinking alkaline, hydrogen-rich water. This suggests a potential link between the water and sleep quality, although more research is needed.

The Importance of Quality Sleep

Sleep is essential. Here’s why:

  • Boosts Physical Health: Strengthen your immune system, promote healthy hormones for weight management, and aid muscular repair.
  • Enhances Cognitive Function: Sleep consolidates memories and processes information which leads to improved focus, concentration, and learning.
  • Improves Mood: Anxiety and depression increases with sleep deprivation. Conversely, good sleep promotes emotional well-being and reduces stress.
  • Increases Athletic Performance: With increased muscle recovery, you can train harder and perform better with adequate sleep. 

Additional Potential Benefits

What else can it help with?

  • Reducing oxidative stress: The origin of many ailments have been traced to oxidative stress. 
  • Improving blood cholesterol: Studies suggest a possible increase in HDL (good) cholesterol.

Beyond Water: A Holistic Approach to Better Sleep

Combine hydrogen-rich, alkaline water along with these other strategies to improve sleep:

  • Maintain a Regular Sleep Schedule: A routine bedtime as well has having a consistent morning schedule, even on weekends, is a known way tofaciliate a healthy sleeping patter.
  • Create a Relaxing Bedtime Routine: Put your phone down and unwind. Reading a book or listening to a podcast with create a calming environment so that your body can transition to a restful, peaceful part of your life. 
  • Optimize your Sleep Environment: A dark, quiet, cool, and clutter-free room will calm your mind with the lack of physical commission. 
  • Regular Exercise: Get active but don’t over extend yourself with strenuous workouts at night.
  • Manage Stress: Stress can impact not only your sleep. Find tools to dissipate stress such as meditation, deep breathing, yoga or whatever process allows you to release the stresses of life.

Consult a healthcare professional if you continue to experience sleep problems to rule out any underlying medical conditions.


While more research is required, alkaline, hydrogen-rich water shows promise as a natural sleep aid. If you’re struggling with sleep, it may be worth exploring alongside a healthy sleep routine. Remember, a holistic approach that addresses various sleep hygiene factors is key to achieving restful nights and waking up feeling refreshed and energized.
