Free radicals and oxidants are an unavoidable part of every day life, generated from both normal cell metabolism and external exposures such as pollution, cigarette smoke, radiation, medications, and chemical exposures. Accumulation of free radicals leads to oxidative stress, which contributes to chronic and degenerative illnesses. Many diseases are impacted adversely by free radicals, including autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, and cancer among others. Antioxidants can help counteract oxidative stress by neutralizing the free radicals and protecting cells.
Antioxidants can neutralize excess free radicals to protect cells from the toxic effects of free radicals. Molecular hydrogen can help counter oxidative stress. Benefits of molecular hydrogen have been demonstrated for over 60 disease models and human diseases, including type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, chronic kidney disease, radiation induced pathology, and brain stem infarction. While the exact molecular basis for the prominent effects is not fully understood, benefits have been demonstrated in oxidative stress mediated diseases.
Consumption of molecular hydrogen (H2) has been shown to have benefits for a variety of conditions, including autoimmune and inflammatory disease, diabetes, and musculoskeletal conditions.
