Benefits of Molecular Hydrogen

Hydrogen is the smallest and most abundant element in the Universe! Two atoms combine to form hydrogen gas (H2) the smallest and most mobile molecule. This exclusive property gives it a greater cellular bioavailability than any other nutrient or nutraceutical. Molecular Hydrogen can rapidly diffuse into cells, mitochondria and fluids throughout the body to deliver its unique and abundant benefits.

The safe and effective inhalation of less than 10% Hydrogen gas is known as Hydrogen Therapy. Every cell in our body is surrounded by a membrane, a barrier designed to control what particles are allowed in and out of the cell. Hydrogen is so small, that it is able to diffuse freely across these membranes, slipping through the gaps to make its way into our cells. For this reason, hydrogen is able to cross other membranes too, like the blood-brain barrier. This is important because it’s INSIDE the cell where hydrogen performs its magic. Hydrogen seems to work at the nuclear gene transcription level, telling our cells to start pumping out more powerful free radical scavengers, like glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase.  Hydrogen also affects intracellular signaling, telling our cells to slow down on processes that create harmful free radicals and to downregulate the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines.

Benefits of Hydrogen for Anti Aging

Hydrogen gas appears to reduce the progression of cellular aging by preventing oxidative stress of the cell, inhibiting mitochondrial DNA damage, suppressing oxidative stress, and inhibiting cellular senescence, all of which are hypothesized to be linked to the aging of the human body and cells.

Hydrogen is used extensively in Japan and other Asian Health Spas, hydrogen helps reduce scars, age spots and wrinkles. Hydrogen also enhances collagen production in skin, better hydration and elasticity that provides a more youthful look.

Several Medical Research Articles Regarding Hydrogen

According to a 2018 study published in the Journal of Acute Medicine and Surgery, it suggests molecular hydrogen could enhance critical care medicine as well as chronic disease management, like metabolic syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and neurodegenerative diseases
