Molecular hydrogen (H₂) is a unique antioxidant with the potential to revolutionize the self-care industry. By boosting your intake of this ordinary element (made extraordinary through our availability technology), you can reap multiple benefits. In the body, H₂ molecular hydrogen eliminates only the most harmful free radicals, thereby reducing oxidative stress and allowing the body to maintain optimal functionality and achieve balance.

Due to its extremely small size and superb bioavailability, a hydrogen supplement easily and rapidly travels far and wide throughout the body. It’s able to cross cell membranes, penetrating well into the cytoplasm of your cells and mopping up rogue free radicals. H₂ is a molecular hydrogen antioxidant that also crosses the blood brain-barrier with ease, and accesses parts of the cell that other antioxidants are incapable of reaching.

At Vital Reaction, our H₂ supplement is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecule, which works rapidly to promote wellness and balance within the body, without adversely affecting cell signaling.

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.

Molecular Hydrogen Tablets and Inhalation Machines From Vital Reaction

Consumable H₂ molecular hydrogen from Vital Reaction affords you the opportunity to boost your supply of one of nature’s most versatile, potent antioxidants. It’s the natural way to combat inflammation and promote healthful balance.

Vital Reaction offers high-quality molecular hydrogen products, including tablets and hydrogen inhalers. Tablets can be dissolved in drinking water for a quick boost, as part of your daily health regimen. With Vital Reaction, you get the most hydrogen per serving of any product on the market.
