H2 What is It?
Medical Active Hydrogen gas was first researched in 1975 by Dole and colleagues from Baylor University. They reported in the Journal of Science that inside a hyperbaric chamber hydrogen therapy was effective at reducing melanoma tumors in mice.
In 2007 it was demonstrated that by breathing in hydrogen gas via inhalation at levels below the flammability limit of 4.6%, it could give a therapeutic effect. These findings suggested that hydrogen gas has effective medical and clinical applications.
Medical Hydrogen Gas is simply two hydrogen atoms that are bonded together. It is the prime antioxidant in the body and the smallest know element in our universe and is able to easily access every cell in the body even when it has no blood supply.
H2 Is In Our Foods
Traditionally our main source of absorbing active hydrogen was from hydrogen-rich foods such as fresh fruits, vegetables, animal proteins and fats. In the process of digesting these foods we absorb the active hydrogen through our intestines. Yet with introduction of processed foods and long-life foods, the small amount of active hydrogen that was there in the first place is often lost.
—OH + H2 = H20
Once the active Hydrogen Gas molecule is bonded to for example a harmful Hydroxyl Radical. This harmful molecule is then transformed into healthy structured water, which is then rehydrated by your body the chemistry is simple. (—OH + H2 = H20)
Evidence-Based Benefits of H2
Hydrogen is the smallest particle in the universe, it is so small you could fit 200,000 molecules of hydrogen across the width of one strand of your hair.
Hydrogen has a molecular weight of 2. The molecular weight of Vitamin C is 176, Vitamin E is 431, and Coenzyme Q10 is 873. Because H2 is so small and so light, it is easily transported into every cell and mitochondria in your body. It reaches the brain and any damaged mitochondria, where in other cases other antioxidants are just bystanders.
Each day our bodies are battered with lots of free radicals as allergens, stress, viruses, bacteria, pollution and food additives to name a few. This is serious as about 90% of all our modern ailments are known to be associated with free radicals.
Our understanding of free radicals are essential and amongst them, the Hydroxyl radical is the most toxic and worst to attack our vital structures and our DNA, lipids, and proteins. As expected, it plays a major role in more than 70 diseases including cancer, blood vessel diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Heart Disease, Stroke, Diabetes, etc.
So it makes sense to treat the underlying condition and Medical Hydrogen Gas has been shown in Scientific research that it selectively neutralises the toxic free radicals such as Hydroxyl radical which is one of the most harmful.
Hydrogen is also a source of fuel , it has no toxic by product. It has 3 times more energy than petrol, so not only is this incredible gas is an antioxidant and fuels our cells. As of 2016, there are three models of hydrogen cars available in select markets: the Toyota Mirai , The Hyundai Nexo and The Honda Clarity
We store Hydrogen pooling in our liver. We depend on hydrogen, however, most people demonstrate being in a hydrogen deficit.
Approximately 62% of all the molecules in your body are hydrogen and the air we breathe contains only 0.0005%. In contrast, 24 % of our body’s molecules are oxygen and the air we breathe is 21% oxygen.
Hydrogen is a selective antioxidant meaning it only reacts with the harmful free radicals, like OH, but the beneficial free radicals as hydrogen peroxide and Nitric Oxide are spared.
Because Hydrogen Gas has selective capabilities between harmful and beneficial free radicals and how it creates homeostatic balance between free radicals and antioxidants. It has gain the status from many Doctors around the world as the best antioxidant, and one of the best ways to ease inflammation and oxidative stress.
