Reactive oxygen species and free radicals naturally form within our body as part of the day-to-day cellular processes57. While free radicals are generally associated with many of today’s health problems, it is still needed for other cellular processes in limited numbers62. As a selective antioxidant, H2 can eliminate hydroxyl radicals. When the H2 molecule encounters two OH molecules, it splits up to stabilize the OH by giving it another H, thus forming the harmless byproduct of H2O or water while absorbing the OH radical 27,86.
Hydrogen is an element that is made from a single electron and proton. It is one of the most abundant and smallest molecules found in the universe 24. Water is made up of 2 hydrogen atoms H2 and 1 oxygen atom 24. To obtain hydrogen water, Hyzumi’s range of generators allows the separation of H2 from the oxygen molecule therefore producing hydrogen rich water.
Current research shows that hydrogen can act as a selective antioxidant, and protects the body against free radicals that can cause harm to our body 27. Hydrogen water has been proven to be able to help the body defend against harmful free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) 55. The hydrogen rich water generated from our water generator uses an electrode design that efficiently separates H2 from oxygen in the water.
Our bodies’ cells are constantlyreplicating and working aswe continue to grow older. It is in this process as well thatfree radicals are created as abyproduct. Research has shownthat as these radicals are unpaired, they are highlyreactiveand will often seek out other molecules in order to stabilizethemselves. As such, should they cling to vital cells in ourbody, long term damage could occur.The good news is our body has a natural antioxidant systemthat is set to defend us from beingoverwhelmedby these freeradicals in the rst place. However the system can easily beweakened through poor nutrition, an unhealthy lifestyle andthe perils of old age. The damage that free radicals exert onyour body is calledoxidative stress.
Triggers the activation or up-regulation of additional antioxidant enzymes (CAT, SOD, GPx, etc.) and/orcytoprotective proteins in the body.
Hydrogen can selectively reduce the hydroxyl free radical, the most toxic free radical protect cells without interacting with other components in our body thus making it selective.
Drinking hydrogen water decreased cholesterol, improved glucose tolerance and insulin resistance in a study (Double-Blind, Randomized, Controlled Trial) of 36 patients with type 2 diabetes or prediabetes (impaired glucose tolerance). The patients drank 900 mL of hydrogen water daily for 8 weeks. [R]
Oxidative stress has been shown in chronic inflammatory diseases, especially on the skin. Hydrogen water has been a treatment strategy for associated skin conditions and has been tried in a few studies, through hydrogen-water bathing.
Drinking hydrogen water immediately stopped allergic reactions in animals suffering from allergies. [R] These occur within minutes. Hydrogen stopped the allergies not only by its antioxidant action, but also by blocking the whole allergic pathway. Hydrogen water is also a promising potential remedy for people with allergic, inflammatory conditions like eczemaas it seems to balance body's immune response. [R]
One compelling study of male soccer players found that, by consuming hydrogen-rich water before exercise, these athletes could reduce blood lactate levels and improve muscle function during exercise. After exercise, these athletes experienced lower levels of muscle fatigue and were able to recover faster. Because it also treats exercise-induced dehydration, hydrogen-rich water is a promising remedy for athletes. [R] In a study on the effects of hydrogen water on prolonged intermittent exercise, drinking 2 L of hydrogen water daily helped 8 cyclists power through sprints with more energy and less exhaustion. [R]
Hydrogen-rich water prevented damage to the stomach lining in animal studies due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. [R] Drinking hydrogen-rich water may protect healthy individuals from gastric damage caused by oxidative stress.
So far, only cellular studies point to the potential of hydrogen water for fighting cancer. Hydrogen water combined with increased temperature (hyperthermia) had a strong cancer-killing effect in cells. [R] In human cancer cells, hydrogen water suppressed tumor growth by reducing oxidative stress. [R] Hydrogen water also blocked the creation of new blood vessels in human lung cancer cells, preventing cancer spreading and growth. [R]
Hydrogen water given through an IV solution safely improved skin health in 4 patients with skin redness and inflammation, and pain. The skin redness went away after a couple of days of treatment and did not come back. [R] Bathing in hydrogen water for 3 months noticeably reduced skin wrinkles in 6 people. [R] Hydrogen water seems to boost collagen production, reduce UV damage and act as an antioxidant in skin cells. Warm hydrogen-infused baths could be a pleasant, safe way to reverse skin aging.
