Everyday we are exposed to cell-damaging free radicals.
Every single day we are exposed to the harmful effect of our environment. Pollution, sun exposure and various toxins from a broad range of sources damage our cells. Science is starting to understand the biology behind this damage.
One of the main reasons is caused by the molecules known as ‘free radicals'. Typically, molecules have two electrons to keep them stable.
The free radicals, however, only have one electron due to the harmful environmental impact, which makes them unstable and a contributing factor to the breakdown of our bodies.
The unstable free radical are always seeking to become stabilised by pulling in an additional electron from healthy molecules.
This process sets off a chain reaction and more molecules become imbalanced and thus unhealthy.
A damaging process known as oxidative stress. Persistent oxidative stress is one of the major causes of most lifestyle-related diseases, cancer and the ageing process
Antioxidants are substances that protect your cells from oxidative stress and inflammation by removing the harmful free radicals.
The amount of free radicals in the body must be in balance to maintain a good health.
Certain vitamins are known as antioxidants and are believed to counteract oxidative stress by reducing the formation of free radicals.
Nevertheless, vitamins and nutrients are linked to a limited therapeutic success. On the other hand, hydrogen(H2) has potential as a novel antioxidant in preventative and therapeutic applications.
Hydrogen(H2) readily gives up electrons to free radicals, which stabilizes them and stops them in their tracks.
Hydrogen(H2) shows not only effects against oxidative stress, but also various anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects.
Hydrogen(H2) holds advantages over other antioxidants because it is such a tiny molecule: it is able to penetrate cell membranes, and can easily enter deep into cell components, where other antioxidants are not able to reach.
Also, hydrogen (H2)boosts the body’s defenses by increasing production of natural antioxidants.
No adverse effects of consuming hydrogen(H2) exist.
The Effect of Hydrogen (H2)
The action of hydrogen is diverse, but the main action is antioxidant behaviour. It has a strong erasing power of active oxygen and selectively erases the most atrocious "hydroxyl radical(∙OH)" of the free radical family.
There is no substance that erases hydroxyl radicals more efficiently than hydrogen(H2).
Numerous effects besides antioxidant effects have been revealed in hydrogen(H2), Moreover, hydrogen(H2) exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and anti-apoptotic properties at the sub-cellular level.
Hydrogen(H2) is the smallest element in the world, and therefore permeable to penetrate any cell wall.
Hydrogen(H2) is delivered to and acts on peripheral cells as well as within the cells.
Hydrogen(H2) has characteristics of a therapeutic drug with higher mobility and cellular bioavailability than any other anti-oxidants/vitamins/nutrients. It protects DNA, RNA and proteins from oxidative stress, which is one of the major causes of most lifestyle-related diseases, such as cancer, diabetes and the ageing process. It triggers the activation of the body's endogenous antioxidant self defence system (SOD, GSH, CAT) to improve the regulation redox homeostasis. Also, it hydrates and rejuvenates on the cellular level and is ideal to be administered in iv drip injection. Over 1,000+ peer-reviewed articles demonstrate hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ of the human body and in 170 different human disease models.
Molecules that interact with free radicals terminating potentially harmful chain reactions before vital molecules are damaged.
Recent studies show that molecular hydrogen(H2) is a unique and effective antioxidant that neutralizes the dangerous hydroxyl radical (∙OH) without interfering with other free radicals required by the human body.
