If you remember your Chemistry lessons, H2 is the smallest element in the world
As the smallest element, Hydrogen can access the deepest parts of the body (the mitochondrial cells) where other elements cannot reach.
Water is made up of H2 + O thus when you drink Hydrogen-rich water, H2 molecules will bond with + O (free radicals) = H2O (water), discharged as urine.
In other words, H2 has strong antioxidant properties.
Hydrogen is a selective antioxidant.
Prof. Shigeo Ohta (Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Nippon Medical School) first published about the therapeutic use of Hydrogen in Nature in 2007:
“Acute oxidative stress induced by ischemia-reperfusion or inflammation causes serious damage to tissues, and persistent oxidative stress is accepted as one of the causes of many common diseases including cancer.
We show here that hydrogen (H2) has potential as an antioxidant in preventive and therapeutic applications. We induced acute oxidative stress in cultured cells by three independent methods.”
Thus, H2 can be used as an effective antioxidant therapy; owing to its ability to rapidly diffuse across membranes, it can reach and react with cytotoxic ROS and thus protect against oxidative damage.”
H2 selectively reduced the hydroxyl radical, the most cytotoxic of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and effectively protected cells; however, H2 did not react with other ROS, which possess physiological roles.
We used an acute rat model in which oxidative stress damage was induced in the brain by focal ischemia and reperfusion. The inhalation of H2 gas markedly suppressed brain injury by buffering the effects of oxidative stress.
Prof. Ohta said, “After publishing a paper on the biological effects of molecular hydrogen in the Nature Medicine in 2007, I have been studying hydrogen. Through clinical tests, I’ve learned that hydrogen has a positive effect on heart disease, brain disease and diabetes.”
Hydrogen is difficult to preserve within the body but without it, cells get weak and deteriorate, then high acidity is produced in your system.
Thus Hydrogen also has a pH balancing effect on the body, not turning acid into alkaline at all, but balancing the equilibrium of the body whilst flushing out acidic toxins through sweat and urine.
What is IZUMIO?
IZUMIO is a beverage manufactured by dissolving a high concentration of hydrogen in mineral water.
Naturally Plus, a Japanese company, pioneered the production and sales of Hydrogenized water:
Hydrogen water for health problems
“The results of clinical trial showed that hydrogen water, which is functional water, reduces reactive oxygen species (ROS) that contribute to aging, and is effective in the treatment of diseases such as atopic dermatitis and dementia. When children with atopic dermatitis took hydrogen water bath , their condition improved in two months. Korea has entered a stage where elderly people drink hydrogen water,” said Lee Kyu-Jae, President of the Korean Water Society.
If you are looking for antioxidants, Hydrogen-rich water is the smallest antioxidant available.
