Hydrogen in a Nutshell

  1. Hydrogen gas is also known as Molecular gas, or H2
  2. It’s the smallest molecule in the world, so much so that it can even penetrate past our cell membrane into our mitochondria
  3. Hydrogen gas is very safe under 4.6% concentration
  4. Mitochondria is the engine of our cell. Much like our car engines produce toxic byproduct like carbon monoxide, the mitochondria produce a very toxic byproduct called hydroxyl radicals. Only hydrogen gas can react with hydroxyl radicals to keep them from harming our protein and DNA in our body
  5. Hydrogen gas used to protect astronauts from radiation 
  6. Hydrogen was first used for deep sea divers in the early 1940’s to prevent decompression sickness1. Over-inhalation did not cause any side effects
  7. When hydrogen gas reacts with hydroxyl radicals, the byproduct is water, thus making it a very safe element in our body
  8. Hydrogen gas is very natural to our body. Evolutionary theory states that hydrogen was what caused life to eventually happen 2. Hydrogen was the first element found in the universe, and therefore it’s the first element in the periodic table. If you think about it, without hydrogen, we won’t have water, as water is made of hydrogen gas and an oxygen atom (H2+O=H2O)
  9. To date, there have been over 1000 studies that suggest that hydrogen gas have therapeutic potential in over 170 different human and animal disease models
  10. Not everybody responds to hydrogen. Much like prescription medication and chemotherapy, some may respond better to hydrogen gas than others. However, unlike the conventional medical methods, hydrogen gas is not a synthetic substance and is therefore safe from any side effects occurring (exception for Type I diabetics as hydrogen gas may have an anti-glucose effect)
