What is Hydrogen & Hydrogen Molecule (H2)?
Hydrogen is the chemical element with the symbol “H“ and atomic number 1. It has one proton and one atom and it is the most common element, making up to 75% of the mass of the entire universe. Hydrogen is the smallest, simplest element in the universe and it has a high level of bioavailability.
Two hydrogen atom join together to form a hydrogen molecule ( H2 ). Hydrogen molecule can rapidly diffuse deep into all the human body cells and mitochondria and easily pass through the blood brain barrier.

Why Hydrogen Molecule (H2) is so powerful?
Molecular Hydrogen ( H2 ) is an extraordinary antioxidant that selectively scavenges the most dangerous and destructive hydroxyl radicals which cause destructive effect on human body as it steals electrons from molecules in DNA, proteins, and fats, destabilizing them and setting off a chain of oxidative stress.
In 2007, the famous medical journal, “Nature Medicine” published an article “ Hydrogen acts as a therapeutic antioxidant by selectively reducing cytotoxic oxygen radicals” and it was stated that molecular hydrogen has therapeutic effect on human body.
Molecular Hydrogen removes harmful free radicals from the body by converting them into water. Molecular hydrogen readily gives electrons to hydroxyl radicals, stabilizes them and stops them in their tracks. It also reduces the toxicity of peroxynitrite, another destructive oxidant, and further boosts the body’s defenses by increasing production of natural antioxidants such as gluthathione, superoxide dismutase, and catalase.
H2 has beneficial effects on cell signaling and gene expression. It suppresses TNF-alpha and other proteins involved in inflammation and turns on mechanisms that protects against cell death. But because Hydrogen is selective, it does not scavenge essential redox signaling radicals that play a key role as cellular messengers.
Recent studies show that hydrogen water increases the production of a hormone called ghrelin. Secreted in the stomach, ghrelin is best known for stimulating appetite, boosting growth hormone release and it has protective effects in the brain, vascular system, liver, and elsewhere.
H2 are able to diffuse through cellular membranes, enter the mitochondria and nucleus of cells, cross the blood–brain barrier, and exert their positive effects in tissues and organs throughout the body.
H2 is not a foreign and alien substance to the body. In fact, after a fiber-rich meal, our gut bacteria produces a large amount of this hydrogen gas which diffuses into the blood and exerts many beneficial effects.
