Research and 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:

  • Pain Relief: 53% average improvement in symptoms.

  • Arthritis: 60% average improvement in symptoms

  • Lung Health: 44% average improvement in symptoms

The study was carried out on 150 people:

  • The ages of these people ranged from 12 to 89
  • The average improvement in symptoms from clients overall was 44%
  • Overall from the results it seems that people benefit more from having more treatments within a short space of time.
  • The study was carried out on people with many different ailments.  Details are as follows:  General Pain, Arthritis, Chest and breathing issues, High Blood pressure, Cholesterol, Diabetes Type 1&2, Sinus complaints ,MS, Lymphedema, IBS, Hormonal Acne, Fibreomyalgia.
  • Overall it was found that the more treatments people received in a short period of time the more their symptoms improved rapidly.

For General Pain We recommend from the results that a person receive between 6 and 8 treatments to see good results. The Average figure is 44% on a study of  people receiving between 2 and 10 treatments. 14% – 100% improvement

For Arthritis We would recommend that a person have between 7 and 9 treatments to see maximum results. The average improvement seen here is 44% on a study of people receiving between 3 and 9 treatments. 13% – 100% improvement.

For chest problems and breathing issues I would recommend a minimum of 6 treatments. The average improvement here was seen to be 50% carried out on a study of people receiving between 3 and 6 treatments. 30%– 100% improvement

For Blood Pressure We also see great results from between 6 and 8 treatments. As we are not a medical practice we didn’t have the facility to monitor this but subjectively patients reported improvements in a positive direction.

For Cholesterol 34% average improvement in 2 to 7 treatments. These figures come from a study of people with 14%-70% improvement

For Diabetes we found an average of 35 % improvement. This was carried out on people receiving 3 to 4 treatments.

For Sinus complaints. We found 22% – 100% improvement from receiving 4 treatments.

For MS we found an overall wellbeing improvement of 63% after 6 treatments.

For Lymphedema our patients found a difference in symptoms between 33% and 43% and this was receiving 6 treatments.

For IBS we saw an improvement of 22% after just 3 treatments.

For Hormonal Acne we found 100 percent improvement in appearance and symptoms after 10 treatments.The results have continued to improve over time.

For Fibromyalgia we saw great results. Ranging from 50 to 100% improvement receiving 5 treatments.

H2 Clinic is affiliated with the European Institute of Molecular Hydrogen Therapy correlating research and clinical findings.
