Hydrogen (H2) has antioxidant properties, but is more advanced and effective than an antioxidant.
Since hydrogen is the smallest element in the universe, it easily finds its way to all cells in the body. Because the body already uses hydrogen in some of the body’s processes, the product has absolute bioavailability. When you put an H2 tablet in a glass of water, a reaction takes place that creates hydrogen in the water in 90 seconds. You get a glass of hydrogen water with the highest concentration on the market.
What is H2?
Simply explained, hydrogen (H) is an element and H2 with two hydrogen atoms, also called hydrogen gas. Hydrogen is the most abundant substance in the universe. Hydrogen has the smallest molecular bond discovered and with this property, hydrogen-enriched water easily reaches cells and organs throughout the body, even past the blood barrier to the brain. The concept of molecular hydrogen is relatively new in Sweden, but in the USA and Japan, the intake of hydrogen-rich water has been studied for a long time with success and growing enthusiasm. The exciting thing about H2 is that it has antioxidant properties, but is more advanced and effective than a regular antioxidant. Hydrogen is like a homing missile that actively seeks out harmful hydroxyl radicals in the body and transforms them into water. In addition, H2 pushes other parts of the body’s most effective processes to achieve recovery, including glutathione, SOD and catalase. While H2 orchestrates SOD and important immune defense elements and acts as the strongest antioxidant, important processes are left alone, such as nitric oxide for endurance and blood flow or hydrogen peroxide in parts of the immune system against viruses and unwanted bacteria. An excess of common antioxidants cannot work selectively like H2.
What is a radical?
Radicals, also called free radicals, are atoms or molecules that are very aggressive as they lack an electron in the outermost range. Processes take place all the time in the body where free radicals are a residual product. They thus have an unpaired and free electron, which means that they like to react with other unpaired electrons and thus form new chemical compounds. An imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants is called oxidative stress. Free radicals can, among other things, break down cell walls. Oxidation in the body can be compared to the car rusting – but here it is the body that ages.
Why are antioxidants needed?
Antioxidants are needed to neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress. The name means “against oxidation” and unlike radicals, antioxidants have an excess of electrons. Thanks to this, they can share their electrons and the free radicals become stable. Hydroxyl radicals which are the most dangerous and harmful structures consist of two molecules with one hydrogen atom and one oxygen atom, when H2 reigns with these water is formed.
Hydrogen and energy
Mother Sun is powered by H2. She is quite old and will probably last quite a while longer. H2 is naturally occurring and everywhere around us. If we could manage H2 like the sun, we could drive a car all our lives on a few deciliters of fuel – or maybe live healthy for a long time. H2 is found on Earth in glacial rivers and other places with a pure and pristine environment. Of course, the body can already handle H2. A healthy microflora in the body’s intestinal system produces hydrogen with the help of dietary fiber. Molecular hydrogen is carried with the blood to the cells’ mitochondria, which are the human energy-producing units. Molecular hydrogen is likely the best way for the individual to create new energy and balance. In the United States, molecular hydrogen has also been successful with athletes and those active in sports. This when athletic performances were seen to increase in a short time. Probably a positive combination of mitochondrial activity, of H2 seeming to protect cretin levels and how hydrogen reduces inflammation.
