Hydrogen water therapy for inflammatory conditions.
Since its discovery as an antioxidant in 2007, multiple studies have shown numerous beneficial effects of molecular hydrogen. In chemistry molecular hydrogen is expressed as H2. Recent medical discoveries reveal it has a powerful ability to neutralise the most harmful free radicals peroxynitrite (ONOO-) and hydroxyl radicals (•OH)
How does molecular hydrogen help with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)?
How does this Work?
Quite simply: Molecular hydrogen has incredibly powerful antioxidant properties. What’s more, molecular hydrogen can permeate every tissue in the body, thus can get everywhere. Unlike supplemental antioxidants, it does not impair your body’s natural ability to produce other types of antioxidants.
People with RA have oxidative stress, caused by free radicals, which are unstable molecules. This is because they only contain one electron. As electrons need to be in pairs, free radicals often steal electrons from other cells. This action causes oxidation stress, and cells can get damaged or even die. This often leads to pain and inflammation,
Since molecular hydrogen (H2) contains two hydrogen atoms, it is able to donate one to free radicals. Free radicals are oxygen-containing molecules. Thus, when molecular hydrogen donates a hydrogen atom, the formula for water (H2O) is complete. Thus, molecular hydrogen neutralises free radicals by turning them into healthy and harmless water.
Additional investigations of the benefits of molecular hydrogen for RA patients are urgently needed, as molecular hydrogen therapy has tremendous potential, but is currently under-utilised and its benefits are not thoroughly explored.
Molecular hydrogen can permeate every tissue in the body. Making your own hydrogen-water is an incredibly safe and cost-effective therapy.
Hydrogen water has been found to improve skin conditions such as psoriasis and parapsoriasis en plaques.
Make your own hydrogen water with our selection of Hydrogen Water Generators!
To go with the portable generator, we recommend also purchasing an EcoTANKA (600ml or 800mL) with cap top lid. This means you can hydrogenate your water right in your drinking bottle – perfect for travelling or just being “out and about”.
NOTE: molecular hydrogen will pass through the walls of whatever container it is in. Drinking soon after generating is recommended (you can “recharge” it anytime), but after an hour there is likely no remaining dissolved hydrogen.
