ANTIOXIDANT & BRAIN-PROTECTIVE
Infusing molecular hydrogen into water has been shown to act by reducing the most toxic reactive oxygen species (ROS) which protects the cells from damage. A pilot study of 38 stroke patients showed that hydrogen water was safe and had a mild antioxidant effect.
Hydrogen water restored the natural growth of brain cells in mice. Since this also happens in people who overcome depression (with antidepressants or otherwise), hydrogen water has the potential for improving depression and other mood disorders.
BOOSTS SKIN HEALTH
Hydrogen water has been shown to help boost collagen production, reduce UV damage and act as an antioxidant in skin cells. This shows the potential of hydrogen water as a pleasant and safe way to reverse skin aging. The use of hydrogen water improved skin health in patients with skin redness and inflammation/pain.
ATHLETIC & MUSCLE PERFORMANCE
In an experiment with 10 young athletes (DB-CT), drinking hydrogen water reduced lactic acid build-up during heavy exercise and decreased muscle fatigue.Drinking 2 L of hydrogen water daily helped 8 cyclists power through sprints with more energy and less exhaustion in one small 2-week study.In a study on mice with a serious muscle-wasting disease (Duchenne muscular dystrophy), hydrogen water prevented abnormal body mass gain and increased the production of the antioxidant glutathione peroxidase. Hydrogen water could potentially improve muscular dystrophy in DMD patients.
