How Molecular Hydrogen Works

For most of medical history we thought hydrogen was just another inert gas with no real medical applications. All of that changed in 2007, when a group of researchers published their findings in the medical journal Nature showing that hydrogen is actually a unique and highly-effective antioxidant in the human body.

Since then, there have been over 1000 peer-reviewed studies showing that molecular hydrogen has applications for over 170 different disease processes.

How can there be so
many applications?

It has a lot to do with something called oxidative stress. In a nutshell, oxidative stress is a damaging process that occurs when the body has too many free radicals and not enough antioxidants to keep them in check.

Oxidative stress causes damage to the body’s cells, tissues, and proteins, which causes a wide range of illnesses. Molecular hydrogen (H2) is an antioxidant that reduces oxidative stress by uniquely targeting the most harmful free radicals. So it makes sense that the H2 supplement has applications in so many illnesses and conditions.

Where do free radicals come from?

Throughout our entire lives, our bodies are bombarded by free radicals. They often come from various environmental sources, such as air pollution, heavy metals, pesticides, tobacco smoke, alcohol, etc. However, they are also created through normal metabolic processes in the body.

Free radicals are highly-reactive molecules that attack healthy cells, proteins, and DNA in order to stabilize. The damage they cause to the body is irreversible, which is why preventative measures are preferred whenever possible.

Where do antioxidants come from?

When we’re young and healthy, our bodies are able to produce natural antioxidants to combat these free radicals and maintain balance. Unfortunately, as we age, our natural antioxidant production weakens. When antioxidant production can’t keep up, free radicals can start to wreak havoc on our bodies, even damaging our DNA.

In fact, the free radical theory of aging holds that damage from free radicals is the primary biochemical process that causes the aging process. As we age, our internal defense system declines, allowing oxidative stress to accumulate, resulting in cell damage, disease, and eventually death.

Why not just take antioxidants
as we age?

This idea makes sense based on everything we’ve just discussed. However, it turns out that research on antioxidants is really mixed. Sometimes they help and sometimes they make things worse.

This is because most antioxidants are like antibiotics. They’re not selective with what they target, and they’ll simply wipe out any free radicals they come into contact with. The thing is, just as with bacteria in our bodies, there are both good and bad free radicals. Some free radicals play important roles in our bodies, for immune system health and cellular communication.

What makes Molecular Hydrogen Unique?

Molecular hydrogen is unique in that it’s the only selective antioxidant — it only targets the bad players. Since molecular hydrogen is so stable, it only reacts with the most reactive free radicals, and leaves the less reactive, beneficial free radicals alone.

What’s more, molecular hydrogen is small, like reeeeeally small. It’s literally the smallest element in the universe. This means it can easily reach places most other antioxidants can’t. Hydrogen can even cross the blood–brain barrier and penetrate deeply into every cell in your body.

How does H2 create antioxidants?

Hydrogen is so small that it can diffuse right into your cell’s nucleus, where it works at the genetic level. Inside the cell nucleus, hydrogen binds to the part of the gene that codes for your body’s natural antioxidant defense pathways. It basically tells your cells to start pumping out more of your own natural antioxidants.

So not only does molecular hydrogen diffuse through your whole body combatting the very worst of the free radicals, it actually increases your natural production of other antioxidants. A win–win for your body!

Benefits of Hydrogen Therapy

The benefits of Molecular Hydrogen Therapy include:
  • Reduce inflammation and pain
  • Improve cognitive function and focus
  • Increase energy levels
  • Promote cellular health
  • Improve sleeping patterns
  • Support Healthy weight management
  • Have better skin health and tone
  • Hydrate at the cellular level
  • Boost internal antioxidant levels
  • Enhance athletic performance
  • Decrease recovery time
  • How do we get molecular hydrogen into the body?

    The main ways of consuming molecular hydrogen are by drinking hydrogen-infused water using tablets, or by inhaling hydrogen gas directly. Here at Vital Reaction, we have products to suit both applications.

    Vital Reaction H2 Tablets

    Our tablets will infuse in any non-carbonated beverage with millions of nanobubbles of hydrogen gas. Each tablet will produce up to 10 parts per million (ppm) H2 gas in 10 ounces of water. That’s hundreds of millions of times more hydrogen than would occur naturally.

    Our tablets are composed primarily of pure magnesium and malic acid. When you combine pure magnesium with water and an acidic catalyst, the resulting reaction cleaves the water molecules apart, releasing all of the stored H2 gas.

    Vegan, non-gmo, and third-party tested for purity and potency, our tablets produce up to 5 times as much H2 as any hydrogen water machine or pre-packaged hydrogen water product on the market.

    We are so confident that you’re going to love our hydrogen tablets that we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee — we guarantee you’ll feel better within 30 days of using our product or your money back. Not only that, we also offer free shipping for tablets sent anywhere in the USA.

    Vital Reaction H2 Inhalation Machines

    Our hydrogen inhalers use an electric current to split water molecules apart to create H2 gas for inhalation. One of the big differences between drinking hydrogen rich water and hydrogen inhalation therapy is the dosage. One hour on our clinical hydrogen inhalation machine is the equivalent of taking an entire bottle of our tablets. People typically start to notice benefits in as little as 20 minutes of hydrogen inhalation therapy.

    We carry small portable home inhaler units as well as larger, more powerful units appropriate for use in a clinical setting. Our inhalers are currently delivering hydrogen therapy in clinics across the US and around the globe.

    According to a study from the Journal of Medical Gas Research our inhalers are the safest hydrogen inhalation machines on the market, and the only machines with an internal governor designed to maintain safe concentrations of hydrogen gas.

    The Science Behind How H2 Therapy Works

    Size

    Hydrogen is the smallest molecule in the universe. It’s the only antioxidant that can access the mitochondria and cell nucleus. Unlike conventional, larger antioxidants, H₂ passes through the cell membrane, so it can provide its benefits immediately.

    Selectivity

    Molecular hydrogen selectively targets only the most harmful free radicals. They don’t affect the useful free radicals that help maintain balance in the body. At times, the common, non-selective antioxidants (Vitamin A, C, E, folic acid, etc.) can diminish the helpful free radicals that the body needs — while hydrogen does not.

    Homeostasis

    Molecular hydrogen supports the body’s ability to maintain a condition of balance. It neutralizes harmful free radicals and boosts the internal antioxidant system. This keeps oxidative stress low, supports homeostasis, and decreases chance of disease.

    Safety

    Since its only byproduct is water, molecular hydrogen is 100% safe. As a result, the benefits of molecular hydrogen tablets include zero exposure to toxins and zero chance of overdose.

    The Science Behind Hydrogen Therapy

    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

    “Molecular hydrogen acts as a therapeutic antioxidant by selectively reducing cytotoxic oxygen radicals”
    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 through molecular hydrogen therapy.

    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. When taken in gas form via a hydrogen therapy machine, benefits of the therapeutic properties of H2 are gained, including its actions as an antioxidant mediator, anti-inflammatory, and cell-signaling molecule.

    Free Radicals Cannot Be Eliminated — But They Can Be Limited

    Free radicals are generated naturally — and inevitably — deep within our cells. They are a natural byproduct of the fundamental processes that enable us to generate energy from the foods we consume. There’s a reason we say we are “burning calories.” This energy-generating process literally uses oxygen to “burn” the molecules obtained from the food we ingest for fuel.

    This process generates free radicals. In some instances, the immune system uses these highly reactive and potentially damaging molecules to attack foreign invaders and maintain robust immune function — so free radicals are not entirely negative.

    As always, though, balance is everything. Many lifestyle activities — ranging from inactivity, to consuming fried foods, to avoiding fresh fruits and vegetables, to breathing polluted air — can affect one’s balance of antioxidants and free radicals.
