The first scientific article on the therapeutic effect of molecular hydrogen (H2) was published in 2007 in the world-renowned medical journal Nature Medicine, where it was described as a powerful and selective antioxidant that significantly reduces cytotoxic free radicals. Having established the healing effect of H2 and its enriched water, scientists began to explore all the healing springs around the world known for centuries. They were surprised to learn that they all have a high content of hydrogen gas (H2). In recent years, more than 800 clinical studies have been carried out on patients in various hospitals and universities around the world. The therapeutic effect of H2 has been shown in over 170 types of diseases and its healing effect on every organ of the human body. In this article we will summarize.
1. Water enriched with hydrogen gas (H2) protects the brain and cognitive function from damage.
H2 is the most powerful and effective antioxidant. Its molecule is only 2 microns and seamlessly crosses the blood-brain barrier, reaching nerve cells, mitochondria and the cell nucleus itself. H2 binds to the health-threatening free radicals, producing ordinary water. Hydrogen thus eliminates oxidative stress, a major cause of cell and tissue damage in the brain, leading to the onset of neurological degenerative diseases such as stroke, dementia, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, etc.
2. Suppresses inflammation anywhere in the body
Oxidative stress caused by lifestyle, foods and drugs damages cells, tissues and organs in our body. This leads to inflammatory processes, aging and diseases. Preclinical and clinical studies have reported that hydrogen has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-obesity and anti-aging effects.
3. Cancer prevention and treatment
Damage to cells due to oxidative stress leads to the production of more free radicals, which stimulates the growth of cancer cells in the body. Water enriched with hydrogen gas eliminates free radicals and prevents the appearance and growth of tumors. H2 causes telomere shortening in cancer cells, which suppresses tumor expression.
4. Regulates blood sugar levels
Hydrogen water improves lipid metabolism and glucose tolerance, resulting in lower blood sugar levels in diabetic patients. Hydrogen reduces lipoprotein levels, improves insulin sensitivity and normalizes blood glucose levels.
5. Provides relief from joint pain
Hydrogen water improves the quality of life of patients with joint pain, stiffness and rheumatoid arthritis, characterized by joint inflammation and bone degeneration. It has been found to reduce the outflow and the degree of deformity of affected joints.
6. Reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome
Clinical studies have shown therapeutic effects of hydrogen water in people with metabolic syndrome, which is a combination of physiological disorders such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, etc. Intake of H2 water improves lipid metabolism, cholesterol and glucose levels, which significantly reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome.
7. Improves performance in sports and fitness
H2 gives energy and endurance by increasing the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the mitochondria and reduces muscle fatigue by significantly reducing the release of lactate (lactic acid) into the blood during exercise. The intake of hydrogen water improves the results and performance of both professional athletes and people training for health and tone.
8. Slows aging
Hydrogen gas is the most powerful and effective antioxidant known to science. It is 176 times more effective than vitamin C. Both internal intake and daily treatment with hydrogen water will make your skin fresh, supple and glowing every day.
9. Prevents bone loss
Hydrogen water helps to regulate and maintain the pH balance level in the body without using up the magnesium and calcium stores in the bones and muscles. Thus, it prevents bone loss and the onset of osteoporosis.
10. Helps and restores eye health
Our eyes are exposed to many harmful influences due to our lifestyle and environmental factors. The powerful antioxidant action of H2 makes it critically important for our vision. H2 improves the elasticity of blood vessels and diffuses quickly into tissues due to its small size. Hydrogen intake prevents diseases such as macular degeneration, retinal damage, cataracts, etc.
Does hydrogen gas rich water have side effects?
No negative side effects on human health have been identified from ingesting large amounts of H2 water. Hydrogen gas has no smell, no colour and no toxicity. All the studies showing the safety of water enriched with hydrogen gas (H2) have been collected and systematized here. The data are published on the website of the Institute of Molecular Hydrogen.
What is the difference between alkaline and hydrogen water?
Hydrogen water has nothing in common with alkaline water. H2 water has a neutral pH of 7-7.5 which is the pH of our blood. Note that it is not the water itself that is valuable, although it does have an extremely healthy ORP (oxidation-reduction potential). What is valuable about hydrogen water is the amount of hydrogen gas released into it after the electrolysis process. The more H2 there is in the water, the greater the therapeutic effect on health. Alkaline water is made by ionizers, which do not produce hydrogen gas but only alkalinize the water by changing the charge of its ions.
