Science of H2 MOLECULAR HYDROGEN WATER
H2 MOLECULAR HYDROGEN WATER
1)Hydrogen Water Treats Diabetes
A clinical trial in patients with type 2 diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance showed that drinking hydrogen water (900 mL) for 8 weeks decreased cholesterol, normalized glucose tolerance and improved insulin resistance in a majority of the treated patients [R].
2) Hydrogen Water May Treat Metabolic Acidosis
Metabolic acidosis is a condition characterized by an increase in blood acidity, which can be exacerbated with exercise. A study in healthy physically active males found that a daily intake of hydrogen-rich water for 14 days increased the pH of the blood before and after exercise with no side effects. The study concluded that drinking hydrogen water is safe and may have an alkalizing effect in the blood [R].
3) Hydrogen Water May Prevent Cancer
Heated hydrogen water was found to be an effective anti-tumor agent [R]. In human tongue and connective tissue cancer cells, hydrogen water suppressed tumor colony growth by reducing oxidative stress [R].
Hydrogen water also inhibited angiogenesis (blood vessel growth) in cultured human lung cancer cells [R].
4) Hydrogen Water Reduces Side Effects of Cancer Treatments
Drinking hydrogen water improved mortality and body weight loss caused by an anti-cancer drug, cisplatin, and reduced kidney toxicity in mice [R]. ,
In a study on patients receiving radiation therapy for malignant liver tumors, drinking hydrogen water (1.5 – 2 L/day) suppressed oxidative stress (as measured by elevation of total hydroperoxide levels) and prevented the loss of appetite [R].
5) Hydrogen Water Boosts Skin Health
Hydrogen water administered intravenously (into the vein) to patients with acute erythematous skin diseases caused the erythema (redness) and associated symptoms to significantly improve [R].
Bathing in hydrogen water for 3 months significantly improved wrinkles in the skin in a human study [R].
Hydrogen water also reduced human skin cell damage from ultraviolet (UV) rays [R].
6) Hydrogen Water Enhances Would Healing
Hydrogen water intake via tube feeding in elderly patients reduced the wound size of pressure ulcers and enhanced recovery [R].
7) Hydrogen Water Limits Damage of Transplant Organs
Hydrogen water in the form of a preservation solution reduced the damage of a variety of organs during transplantation [R].
