The Science Behind
Molecular Hydrogen

The Free Radical Theory of Aging

The Free Radical Theory of Aging holds that the damage free radicals do to our cells, particularly the oxidative stress that free radicals cause, is what causes our bodies to age. As we age, our internal defense system declines, allowing oxidative stress to accumulate and resulting in cell damage, disease and death.

Free Radicals
& Oxidative Stress

Free radicals are missing an electron and attack healthy cells in order to stabilize. Whether it is through essential metabolic processes within the body (mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, etc.) or from external sources (pollution, alcohol, heavy metals, pesticides, etc.), we're constantly exposed to free radicals.  The more this occurs, the more oxidative stress builds and harms our health.

Most Harmful Free Radicals: Hydroxyl Radical & Peroxynitrite

The hydroxyl radical and peroxynitrite are the most dangerous free radicals. Their need to steal an electron is so powerful they attack healthy DNA, protein and lipids. This causes irreversible damage to cells and an increase in health challenges and disease.

Molecular Hydrogen

An Emerging Therapeutic Medical Gas

 
Hydrogen is the simplest, smallest and most abundant element in the universe. It is one of only four elements present in every living organism, along with carbon, oxygen and nitrogen.  Hydrogen is made up of one electron and one proton.
Molecular hydrogen (H₂) consists of two hydrogen atoms bonded together as H-H. Molecular hydrogen is the primary form in which hydrogen is found. H₂ is a tasteless, odorless gas that is neutrally charged and highly bioavailable. Its therapeutic properties stem from its actions as an antioxidant mediator, anti-inflammatory and cell signaling molecule.

Molecular Hydrogen

Nature Medicine, 2007
Since 1975, over 800 peer-reviewed articles have been written demonstrating molecular hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ of the human body and in 170 different disease models. More studies are being conducted every day and we are learning about the endless ways we can benefit from this miracle molecule.

How H₂ Works

Size

Molecular hydrogen is the smallest molecule and the only antioxidant that can access the mitochondria and cell nucleus under certain conditions. Unlike conventional, larger antioxidants, H₂ passes the the cell membrane and begins exerting benefits immediately.

Selectivity

H₂ selectively targets only the most harmful free radicals without affecting useful free radicals that help maintain homeostasis. At times, common, non-selective antioxidants (Vitamin A, C, E, folic acid, etc.) can diminish the good free radicals that the body needs, thereby causing a potentially negative effect. H₂ does not.

Safe, Non-Toxic

Molecular hydrogen is 100% safe due to its only byproduct being water. You cannot overdose and are never exposed to toxins from molecular hydrogen.

Homeostasis

H₂ supports the body’s ability to maintain a condition of balance by neutralizing harmful free radicals and boosting the internal antioxidant system. This keeps oxidative stress low, supports homeostasis and decreases chance of disease.

  • Whether you feel healthy or not, molecular hydrogen is the secret to advancing health and human potential.


    Molecular hydrogen (H₂) is a unique antioxidant. H₂ eliminates only the most harmful free radicals, reduces oxidative stress and puts the body in balance.

    Due to its small size and bioavailability, it easily crosses cell membranes, the blood brain-barrier and accesses parts of the cell that other antioxidants are too large to reach. H₂ is the perfect antioxidant mediator, anti-inflammatory, and anti-apoptotic molecule without effecting cell signaling.
