By optimizing your body’s natural balance between beneficial reactive oxygen species and production of antioxidants, you can help your body maintain a healthy balance for overall health.
Each H2-generating tablets provides molecular hydrogen gas to help you control oxidative stress, responding only when needed to help support organs, cells and genetic material.
Molecular hydrogen can help neutralize the damaging effects on your body from processed foods, sugar, alcohol, cigarette smoking, air pollution, environmental toxins, cell phone radiation, dirty electricity and electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Molecular hydrogen is one of the best ways to reduce oxidative stress in your body and prevent excess inflammation. Oxidative stress is one of the biggest factors that destroys human health and speeds up aging. Oxidation-reduction reactions are a natural process that happens constantly within your cells. Many factors can increase oxidative stress and the formation of free radicals in your body. Cell phone radiation, dirty electricity and EMFs can create excess free radicals in your body as well as :
You need a certain amount of free radicals for health as they serve as important signaling molecules, or messengers. One example of a beneficial free radical is nitric oxide, which promotes healthy blood flow and blood pressure. However, forming too many free radicals from eating a poor diet or being exposed to toxins or EMFs can harm you. Excess free radicals and the wrong types can damage your stem cells, mitochondria, cell membranes, proteins and DNA, and can hasten your body’s cellular aging.
Hydrogen plays an important role in improving the oxidative stress of your cells and helps bring everything back into homeostasis by effectively reducing excess oxidative stress.
One of the ways molecular hydrogen improves redox is through the production of antioxidants that your body normally make like glutathione. With healthy levels of oxidation, glutathione sufficiently protects your cells and helps keep oxidation in balance.
Antioxidants work by neutralizing free radicals that grab any convenient electrons they can find. When they indiscriminately rob electrons from stable molecules, they create unstable molecules that can lead to oxidative stress.
This can happen with athletes when they mega-dose with high levels of antioxidants on a regular basis. The antioxidants can negate many of the benefits of exercise training because they neutralize some of the beneficial biologically-signaling free radicals, even the ones that your body needs for proper functioning and healthy blood flow.
How Hydrogen Works Its Metabolic Magic to Support Your Health (quoted from Dr J Mercola’s website) :
“While hydrogen has long been recognized for its value in promoting health, the first major study was published in Nature Medicine -in 2007 and is only recently becoming known to Americans. Japanese researchers have been studying the potential of hydrogen for the last decade.
Hydrogen is very bioavailable and can make its way into every cell and tissue in your body.
Because hydrogen is the smallest molecule in the universe, it can easily penetrate every tissue in your body, including your brain and cellular parts like your mitochondria and nucleus.
With more than 1,200 peer-reviewed scientific publications on molecular hydrogen, researchers report that hydrogen may benefit every organ in your body. And it does this by targeting excess oxidation and supporting a healthy inflammatory response.
One of the most distinguishing features of H2 besides its particle size and bioavailability, is its selectivity as an antioxidant.
Glutathione levels decline with age. Molecular hydrogen gas signals your body to make more as needed. Glutathione is one of your body’s key internal antioxidants. Your levels can drop with poor nutrition, environmental toxins and stress.
Glutathione levels also decline with age.
One of the ways molecular hydrogen performs its metabolic magic is by activating the important Nrf2 pathway that signals your body to make its own antioxidants, including glutathione.
Nrf2 is a transcription factor that, when activated, goes into your cell’s nucleus and binds to the antioxidant response element in the DNA. It then signals your body to produce beneficial cell-protecting enzymes such as glutathione, superoxide dismutase catalase, glutathione peroxidase, phase II enzymes, heme-1 oxygenase and many others. This is the most ideal way to create the antioxidants your body requires so you can avoid too high of levels of damaging oxidative stress. Molecular hydrogen tells your body to make additional antioxidants only when excess oxidative stress is present.
