Hydrogen is a powerful antioxidant that can selectively neutralize hydroxyl radicals (·OH) and peroxynitrite (ONOO-) which can cause significant oxidative damage to our cells and speed up our body's aging process.
By reducing oxidative stress, hydrogen could potentially mitigate one of the major contributors to the aging process.
Chronic inflammation and excessive oxidative stress in our body have been linked to poor sleep quality. Hydrogen therapy can reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in our cells to promote better physiological conditions for sleep.
It is recommended for an individual to come for 3 consecutive sessions of hydrogen inhalation to see significant improvements to their sleep quality.
Hydrogen therapy, which often involves drinking hydrogen-infused water or breathing in hydrogen gas, is being studied for its potential to help athletes perform better and recover faster. The idea is that hydrogen can fight oxidative stress and inflammation, which are common after intense workouts, thereby reducing muscle soreness and speeding up recovery time.
Some scientists believe hydrogen might help the body's energy factories, the mitochondria, work better, which could lead to improved endurance. There are also hints that it could help with managing lactic acid build-up, a common issue during high-intensity exercise, and even help with better metabolism of fats and sugars. However, the evidence isn't solid yet, and more research is needed. For now, it's an interesting possibility that athletes are exploring to gain an edge in their training and performance.
In the early years, most of the studies uses lab hydrogen saline on mice, until the hydrogen inhalation device is invented. Today, most of the test on human is done with a machine that produces a mix of hydrogen(66%) and oxygen(33%), with a gas production rate of 3L/min.
To date, there are more than a thousand papers published about hydrogen gas with respect to general health and diseases. Below is a list of the research paper published related to respiratory challenges. This is not an exhaustive list. We try our best to update as regularly as possible.
