ELO DRINKING WATER - DRINKING GUIDE
Oxygen is essential to all bodily functions and for our cells to generate the energy needed in all healthy cell functions. Having low oxygen levels in the human body, a condition known as “hypoxia”, has been shown to cause poor cell function and even cell death. This condition is associated with numerous health challenges, such as stroke, heart attack, respiratory diseases, dementia, alcoholic fatty liver, diabetes and cancer.
ELO Drinking Water is water that is produced in Singapore utilising a revolutionary treatment system which produces drinking water that has a rich yet stable oxygen content. Oxygen, in such a stable and bound form, is easily absorbed by the body. ELO Drinking Water is preservative and additive free, and is the result of more than 10 years of water science developed in Europe
In 2016, a study was conducted by Monash University to evaluate the effects of ELO Drinking Water on tumour hypoxia and tumour growth in a mouse tumour xenograft. This study involved injecting mice with prostate cancer cells and comparing a group fed with ELO Drinking Water against a controlled group fed with regular tap water. The study showed that the oxygen in ELO Drinking Water, when consumed, was absorbed to reduce tissue hypoxia. It was also shown that the prostate cancer growth in the mice that consumed ELO Drinking Water was inhibited. These beneficial effects were again verified in a repeat study also conducted by Monash University.
An animal study by Monash University in 2017 found that drinking ELO Water doubled the partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood and reduced the lactic acid production by the body in response to severe circulatory stress. The Monash University scientists also discovered in vitro mitochondrial studies that ELO Water increased the ability of cells to utilise oxygen for greater ATP production.
We are currently running randomised controlled human studies at Changi General Hospital Singapore on the effects of ELO Water on Type 2 diabetes and on diabetic foot ulcer healing using ELO Water bath.
It is established science that all cells require a certain level of free radicals to perform their normal functions. In healthy cells, the level of free radicals is tightly regulated by two natural control systems known as the oxidant and antioxidant systems. Hypoxia (low oxygen levels) produces excessive free radicals in cells, thereby upsetting the required balance. On the other hand, healthy cells with sufficient oxygen are able to maintain a healthy level of free radicals.
In 2011, the National Institute of Chemical Safety in Budapest, Hungary, conducted a study and showed that ELO Drinking Water did not increase the free radicals in the body. In fact, the study showed that ELO Drinking Water improved the total antioxidant capacity of the cells.
Adults: at least 4 to 6 glasses (i.e. 750ml to 1.5 litres) over the course of a day.
Children: at least 50% of their daily drinking water requirements over the course of a day. For example, if your child normally drinks 4 glasses of water a day, at least 2 of those cups should be of ELO Drinking Water.
Infants: Please consult your paediatrician as to how much water your baby or infant should consume.
Pets: 30 to 50ml/kg depending on the animal’s general health and activity level over the course of a day. For example, if your pet weighs 5kg, it should consume between 150ml to 250ml of ELO Drinking Water over the course of a day.
On average, most of our consumers have felt an effect after 3 months of continual daily consumption. While we have received many positive reports and feedback from consumers about improvements to their health, we are not claiming that ELO Drinking Water is able to benefit specific medical conditions until our clinical trial results are available.
While it is perfectly fine to do that, there is no need to fulfil your daily water requirements solely with ELO Drinking Water. Daily water intake for an adult is recommended at 2 to 3 litres, depending on activity levels. You may supplement your ELO Drinking Water intake with other types of water or beverages to fulfil this daily requirement.
No, boiling and microwaving ELO Drinking Water will cause it to lose its oxygen content.
Yes, ELO Drinking Water can be served chilled.
We do not recommend freezing ELO Drinking Water as doing so might affect the stability of its oxygen content.
Yes, you can as long as you do not use boiling water. ELO Drinking Water can withstand temperatures up to 40°C.
You may use ELO Drinking Water to make beverages as long as boiling water is not used. ELO Drinking Water can withstand temperatures up to 40°C.
ELO DRINKING WATER - STORAGE
Please refer to the bottle for best before date.
Always store ELO Drinking Water at room temperature, in a dark, cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight. Heat and prolonged exposure of ELO Drinking Water to direct sunlight may affect the stability of the oxygen.
Once opened, we recommend that you consume the entire bottle of ELO Drinking Water within 24 hours for maximum effectiveness. An opened and recapped bottle of ELO Drinking Water is able to retain its oxygen content for up to 3 days when stored in a cool place.
ELO Drinking Water currently does not have its own customised recycling programme for empty ELO plastic bottles. To help conserve the environment, kindly dispose of the empty plastic bottles at your neighbourhood recycling bins. We thank you and appreciate you doing your part in helping the environment.
An ELO Session is a bath session of 50 minutes, during which you are immersed in a bathtub full of ELO Water. These sessions are currently only available at ELO Lab and ELO Water Therapy Centre in Singapore. ELO Water with a dissolved oxygen content of between 140 to 150 ppm is used for ELO Sessions. Warmed to a soothing and comfortable temperature of 37 to 38 degrees Celsius, each 50-minute ELO Session delivers a positive, relaxing effect on the body while oxygen is absorbed through the skin to enhance body tissue oxygen levels. Having adequate tissue oxygenation is necessary for healing and good health.
Each ELO Session lasts for 50 minutes.
For the ELO Sessions to have an optimum effect, we usually recommend that our customers enjoy their ELO Sessions for at least 3 consecutive cycles, with each cycle consisting of daily ELO Sessions over 14 consecutive days. There should be a gap of at least 10 days between each cycle.
This recommendation is based on the experiences gathered over the past 10 years in Hungary by the medical doctors who are behind the technology of ELO. Any disruption to a cycle could potentially compromise the benefits of the ELO Sessions.
While our recommendation for full optimal effect is for ELO Sessions to be enjoyed in cycles of 14 consecutive days, it is certainly possible for our customers to book their ELO Sessions according to their convenience and schedule. It is also possible to enjoy an ELO Session as and when you feel the need for an oxygen “boost”, such as when you are experiencing jet lag.
Yes, it is possible. Some of our customers even take up to 3 ELO Sessions a day.
Our experience has shown that this interval is necessary to allow the body to restore itself to optimise body functions.
For optimal results, we recommend all customers to start drinking ELO Drinking Water for at least a week before starting on ELO Sessions.
If you are unwell with serious medical conditions, we recommend that you consult your medical doctor before you start or continue with your ELO Sessions. If necessary, please obtain a letter from your doctor to state that you are fit for the ELO Sessions. Bringing a companion to help you during your session is also recommended if you are unwell or if you are experiencing mobility issues.
Some customers who have eczema may experience a temporary flare up of their eczema after the initial few ELO Sessions. However, if you have any concerns about this, please seek the advice of your medical doctor before starting the ELO Sessions.
Our findings are that soaking for 50 minutes in an ELO water bath is the optimal duration for tissue oxygenation. Remaining longer in the bath does not increase the benefits you derive from it.
It is not recommended to drink the water used in the ELO Sessions. ELO Drinking Water will be provided before and after your ELO Session.
No, you cannot.
For the safety of our customers, persons with the conditions listed below are restricted from taking an ELO Session:
- Customers who just had surgery 2 weeks prior to the ELO Session;
- Customers with open bleeding wounds;
- Customers with an infectious disease, for e.g. chicken pox;
- Customers with a psychotic mental illness;
- Customers who are intoxicated with alcohol
- Customers with epilepsy;
- Customers with severe mobility issues; and
- Customers who are experiencing menses.
Yes, you may. However, it is not necessary because ELO Water already has a cleansing effect on your skin.
No. However, customers who are under the age of 13 years must be accompanied by their parent or adult guardian.
Undergoing ELO Sessions has no known side effects and majority of our users do not experience any symptoms. However, perceived symptoms vary across individuals. Some symptoms are listed below:
- Pressure on the chest
Users who are not accustomed to baths and soaks may feel this. While you are immersed in the bath, you may feel a slight pressure on your chest. This is normal for all water immersions and is due to the water pressure exerted on your chest. After a while, as you adjust to being submerged in the water, this sensation will be less obvious.
Some users may feel relaxed and drowsy after an ELO Session. If you feel too drowsy, please do not drive or operate heavy machinery.
Perspiration is quite normal after soaking in a warm bath.
- Skin itchiness
Most people do not experience this. However, if you have any allergies and if you do experience any skin itchiness, please consult your doctor before continuing with further ELO Sessions.
ELO SKINCARE - GENERAL USER GUIDE
ELO skincare products include ELO Gel+, ELO Gold Essence, ELO Intense O₂ Moisturiser, ELO Revitalising O₂ Eye Serum and ELO Refreshing O₂ Facial Mist.
ELO skincare products are produced using ELO’s proprietary processes within a highly controlled environment. The oxygen in ELO skincare products comes from oxygen-rich ELO Water. The oxygen in the products is stable and allows for quick absorption into the skin upon application.
While there is no strict usage sequence for our ELO skincare products, we recommend using a skin toner as the first step, followed by ELO Gel+ or ELO Gold Essence, ELO Revitalising O₂ Eye Serum and finally ELO Intense O₂ Moisturiser, in that order. We also recommend that you apply ELO skincare products before applying your make-up. ELO Refreshing O₂ Facial Mist is suitable for use over make-up. You may use it several times a day as a refreshing perk-up whenever your face feels dry.
It is hard to tell because it is not possible to individually test ELO skincare products with all other facial products. Use on a small part of the skin first to test for any reactions (e.g. gel precipitation or skin itch) before applying further. To ensure optimal oxygenation, apply ELO skincare products first before applying other products.

ELO SKINCARE – ELO GEL+ USER GUIDE
ELO Gel+ is an oxygen-rich booster for the face that provides your skin with essential oxygen, improving its capacity to utilise nutrients, for effective restoration of youthful brilliance.
There are no strict guidelines on how many times ELO Gel+ should be applied. Applying it once in the morning and at night is usually sufficient, but you may apply it more frequently if necessary.
ELO Gel+ is not a moisturiser and should not be used as a substitute for your moisturiser. It is a booster that will help your skin absorb moisture from your moisturiser for enhanced skin hydration.
ELO Gel+ is a facial product and can be applied to the skin under the eyes to help reduce eye-bags. However, care should be taken not to allow it to enter the eyes as it may cause eye irritation.
This depends on your skin type and condition. In a clinical trial on ELO Gel+ by Dermapro Skin Research Centre in Seoul, Korea, ELO Gel+ was observed to significantly improve skin wrinkle, hydration, colour, elasticity and radiance over an 8 week period.
While ELO Gel+ enhances the hydration effects of your moisturiser, it is not a moisturiser on its own.
ELO SKINCARE – ELO GOLD ESSENCE USER GUIDE
ELO Gold Essence is a facial essence that features a premium oxygen-rich nano-gold formulation that deeply revitalises the skin for a beautiful complexion and reduces wrinkles while protecting your skin from microbial invasions.
Gold nanoparticles are a type of colloidal gold. They are small enough to penetrate and be absorbed more readily into the skin to ensure rapid reparative action.
There are no strict guidelines on how many times ELO Gold Essence should be applied. Applying it once in the morning and at night is usually sufficient, but you may apply it more frequently if necessary.
