Q: How does H2(molecylar hydrogen) work?H2 biological effects and possible mechanisms of action
H2(hydrogen) has selective anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic properties. Exogenous damage due to such factors as radiation induces excess cellular ROS production.
H2 penetrates biomembranes and effectively reaches cell nuclei. H2 selectively scavenges ·OH and ONOO- and thus prevents DNA damage.
H2 also downregulates the expression of pro-inflammatory and inflammatory cytokines.

Q: Why are we often tired?Q: Why are we often tired?
A: Because of excess free radicals in our bodies.
What are Free Radicals?
Free radicals are the natural waste products of energy production in our cells.
They are produced when mitochondria, the engines of our cells, are producing ATP (energy currency).
Like how a car engine produces carbon monoxide and other pollutants when it burns gasoline.
There are certain factors that increase the amount of free radical production inside the body.
- Natural Factors: Breathing, exercise, food digestion etc.
- Environmental Factors: Fine dust, chemicals, heavy metals, pollution, radiation, direct sunlight etc.
- Lifestyle Factors: Stress, smoking, drinking alcohol, excessive training, unhealthy diet etc.
Excess free radicals damage cells inside our bodies. Free radical damage is called “oxidative Stress” and it’s been linked to more than 90% of chronic health issues as well as aging.
