Molecular Hydrogen is a small molecule that can rapidly cross cell membranes and the blood-brain barrier. Patients can take it either ingested in water or inhaled as a gas as a treatment to reduce inflammation and highly reactive free radicals, such as hydroxyl radicals (OH- ions) or peroxynitrite (ONOO- ion).
The benefits of this process include:
- reduction in inflammation
- reduction in histamine & allergic reactions
- boosting mitochondria
- and helping in protecting against metabolic conditions.
There are multiple peer-reviewed articles on the benefits of molecular hydrogen in PubMed.
How Molecular Hydrogen Helps Reduce Inflammation
According to this article on PubMed, “Molecular hydrogen (H2) medicine research has flourished since a landmark publication in Nature Medicine that revealed the antioxidant and cytoprotective effects of hydrogen gas in a focal stroke model.” In other words, new evidence from ongoing research has shown that molecular hydrogen is a promising therapeutic option for a variety of diseases.
Molecular Hydrogen occurs naturally in the air and can be used as an inert gas at body temperature. Compared with conventional antioxidants, Molecular Hydrogen is a small molecule that can efficiently dissipate throughout the body and cells. And as we’ve seen on pomegranate juice labels and the like, antioxidants have the power to neutralize free radicals, and they can lower your odds of some diseases.
Since Molecular Hydrogen has been shown to effectively decrease radicals (·OH) and peroxynitrite (ONOO−), it also does so without disrupting normal metabolic oxidation-reduction reactions in cell signaling. In other words, Molecular Hydrogen can be used as an anti-inflammatory and anti-tumorigenic agent in clinical practice.
