Inflammation is vital to the immune system's response to injury and infection. It is the body's way of signaling the immune system to heal and repair damaged tissue, as well as defend against foreign invaders, such as viruses and bacteria.
Without inflammation as a physiological response, wounds would fester and infections would be deadly.
However, if the inflammatory process continues for too long, or if the immune response occurs in places where it is not needed, it can create a problem. This condition is called an autoimmune disorder, where our own immune system mistakenly attacks our body and can cause chronic inflammation. It is a major cause of various types of diseases, such as cardiovascular, arthritis, migraines, asthma, bronchitis, cancer, diabetes, psoriasis, eczema, irritable bowel syndrome, liver, kidney and other degenerative diseases. People with chronic inflammation or chronic diseases are more susceptible to infectious diseases.
Chronic inflammation in the body leads to an increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) or so-called free radicals. This is why antioxidant diets are vital to protect our tissues and organs from damage. Antioxidants reduce chronic oxidative stress levels. They neutralize dangerous free radicals to protect cells, prevent disease and reduce inflammation. Our bodies can naturally produce some antioxidants, but our lifestyles have led to chronic deficiencies and therefore we have to get them through food.
Water enriched with hydrogen gas (H2) is the most potent and effective antioxidant yet discovered. A study shows that 1.5 litres of hydrogen water with a H2 concentration of 1500 ppb (parts per billion) has the same antioxidant effect as 1407 apples / 104 carrots / 2061 bananas / 123 spinach or 10 pumpkins. The comparison is based on the antioxidant power of the beta carotene content of these fruits and vegetables. The data was presented in a clinical study by Japanese Professor Hatana Gyazuki of Shitama University.
Here are 5 reasons why hydrogen is the best antioxidant known to science:
1. H2 is the smallest in size.
Unlike other antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, CoQ10, glutathione and others, molecular hydrogen (H2) is the smallest in terms of molecular weight. It is 88 times smaller than vitamin C. Its molecule is only 2 microns. This allows it to effectively cross the blood-brain barrier, eliminate free radicals in the mitochondria of cells and in the cell nucleus itself. Thus, H2 protects our cells and DNA from damage.
2. H2 is the smartest antioxidant. It is the only one that has selective ability.
Not all free radicals are harmful and dangerous to health. Hydrogen peroxide, for example, is very useful. In fact, we need the good free radicals to fight off invaders such as viruses and bacteria. Molecular hydrogen (h2) targets and selectively neutralizes only the health-dangerous hydroxyl radicals (O), producing plain water (H2O)hydrating the body. Other antioxidants do not have this selective ability, and intake of large doses of them can lead to a deficiency of the beneficial radicals.
3. H2 is safe and natural.
Hydrogen is not a foreign element to the body. It is naturally synthesized by good bacteria in any healthy gastrointestinal tract. It is 100% safe and has no toxicity. It does not accumulate in the body and is exhaled if our cells do not need it. For the last 100 years in deep diving, divers have been inhaling a mixture of gases where H2 is in very high concentration. No negative effects have been found as a consequence of its long-term intake.
4. It activates the defences of our body.
H2 has been found to activate the body's own antioxidant enzymes, such as Superoxide Dismutase, Glutathione and others, resulting in an improvement of the body's own antioxidant defenses and strengthening of the immune system.
5. H2 is a signaling molecule that regulates gene expression and processes within the cell.
Clinical studies show that H2 acts as a central regulator of all biochemical processes in cells, which improves their metabolism. This brings the body to a state of homeostasis and strengthens the immune system. H2 regulates gene expression, prevents premature cell death and repairs damaged cells and DNA. This makes it an extremely useful element in the treatment of autoimmune diseases.
