We asked AquaSciences LLC, specialists in the testing and measurement of molecular hydrogen to test the AlkaWay UltraStream and compare it at the flow rate a normal user would use, then at extra slow flow rate. The results are expressed as percentages of maximum hydrogen saturation in the output water.
Independent research from AquaSciences LLC shows the UltraStream produces TRIPLE the molecular hydrogen than the Enagic Kangen Leveluk SD501 !!
“the UltraStream produces an initial higher hydrogen gas concentration (68.8% vs. 21.9%) compared to the SD501” Prof. Tyler LeBaron, AquaSciences LLC
Why is molecular hydrogen so important? Because it’s the ‘secret ingredient’ that makes ionized water have such amazing results. Go here to learn more MolecularHydrogenInstitute.com.
Both units at normal flow rate of 30ml/sec. Kangen SD501 set at 9.5 pH
Both units at slowest flow (5ml/sec)
SD501 at very low flow rate and high pH setting.

Since first posting this information we have learned a great deal more about comparing electronic units to the UltraStream.
- We have discovered that older models with less advanced auto cleanse systems quickly lose their ability to generate molecular hydrogen. This is attributed to the accretion (even very small amounts) of minerals to the electrolysis plates in the ionizer. Because many electronic systems have very basic filtration, mineral accretion on plates is common. Users who have become aware of this deficiency of design report that they have to perform long cleanse cycles weekly to maintain H2 levels.H2 levels are reported to peak at around 0.8 ppm, still far lower than the UltraStream, which has been now measured at up to 1.3 ppm. More often, reports give levels of around 0.3ppm so it may be assumes that the high levels come from owners ‘tuning’ their machines to obtain high H2 levels.
- The ability of electronically generated molecular hydrogen to remain in output water has been shown to be very weak compared to UltraStream. This may be the agitation caused around the electrolysis plates causing the H2 to be formed in bubbles rather than actually infused in the water. Electronic ionizer vendors have often used this bubbling effect to demonstrate the ‘ionization’ of their water. However it now appears that the bubbles in output water glasses are H2 bubbles which quickly leave the water.UltraStream does not bubble because the H2 generation process is far more benign, causing no agitation.
- Electric ionizer vendors claim that their units can run longer, this producing more H2 water. This is true. The UltraStream hydrogen-activates the water in the canister of the UltraStream and continuous flow will reduce in H2 levels as it does not have time to convert the media to H2.However as already discussed, electronic systems do not have the capability to produce the high level of H2 that UltraStream does. Our research and feedback indicates that drinking H2 water with the highest level of H2 is much more effective than drinking a greater amount with less H2 levels.All measurements mentioned here come from our own testing or verified feedback from users using H2Blue reagent tests.
