SCIENCE / RESEARCH / STUDIES
While scientists throughout the world continue to research the effects of molecular hydrogen, it is currently in its infancy in the field of medical research.however the vast amount of research carried out to date shows how beneficial H2 is for our overall health and quality of life.
More than 1,000 scientific articles from Japan, South Korea and the United States suggest that molecular hydrogen has therapeutic potential in over 170 human and animal disease models. According to recent scientific studies, Molecular Hydrogen can have a positive impact on many health problems.
H2 influences our brain and cognitive health, athletic performance and post exercise recovery. It helps in the ongoing activation of the body’s detoxification pathways, namely skin, lungs, colon, liver and kidneys.
Some exciting neurological research on hydrogen is also showing promise. The Japanese government has approved H2 inhalation as an advanced medicine for the treatment of post cardiac arrest syndrome, which will also have neurological benefits. Drinking hydrogen water (600 ml/day) for 4 weeks resulted in decreased sympathetic nerve activation at rest, improved mood, and reduced anxiety. This correlated well to an earlier study where Hydrogen Therapy was effective at increasing resilience to acute and chronic stress by regulating the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and inflammatory responses to stress. Subsequently, a study published in Frontier’s Journal of Behavioural Neuroscience provides evidence that oral ingestion of hydrogen water can reverse autistic-like behaviours (e.g. impaired social behaviour, memory impairment, inflammation induced by maternal exposure to toxins.)
Molecular hydrogen might be the next big thing in biomedicine, with studies and articles published in the past decade suggesting beneficial effects of this novel agent. However, collecting and interpreting unbiased data using evidence-based approach is a must to provide the best guidelines in making decisions about the use of hydrogen in health and disease ‘’ according to Professor Sergej M. Ostojic, MD, PhD, Molecular Hydrogen Studies.
Tyler W. LeBaron from the Molecular Hydrogen Institute (USA) states: ”Although the research is early, the 1000+ scientific articles suggest that H2 has therapeutic potential in over 170 different human and animal disease models, and in essentially every organ of the human body”.
Research carried out by H2 Clinic on a number of subjects over a two year period shows the therapeutic benefits of molecular hydrogen. Here are some examples:
