Research studies

Below are several of 1000+ studies of the therapeutic benefits of hydrogen gas. Note that this does not mean that hydrogen gas can cure, heal or treat any of the following issues; However, based on emerging studies, the results are hopeful and more studies are still in progress with exciting findings. Click each finding to view various independent studies on the various topics.

Molecular hydrogen studies in general:

Therapeutic medical gas

Diverse animal and human disease models

Improving quality of life after after radiotherapy treatment

Alleviating free radical damage

Medical application of hydrogen gas in hematological issues


Growth suppression in cancer treatments (and alleviate side effects caused by chemotherapy)

Lung cancer (represses progression in lung cancer)

Colorectal cancer (improve prognosis via invigorating exhausted T cells)

T cells:

Improve cancer patients outcomes in general via T cells

Other issues:

Neurological/metabolic/inflammatory diseases

Gastric injury

Depression, anxiety, and traumatic brain injury


Kidney injury (in rats)

Asthma (in mice)

Lung injury (in rats)

Myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury (via Nrf2 pathway activation; in rats)

Brain injury (in mice)

Obesity & metabolism (in mice)

Radiation-induced heart damage (in rats)

Fatty liver disease (in mice)

Inflammation from exercise

Cardiovascular disorders

Type II Diabetes

Type II Diabetes (also obesity)

Type I Diabetes (in mice)

Multiple Sclerosis (in mice)

Autism (while there have been no direct studies linked to autism and H2 so far, some probable causes of autism may include altered ghrelin levels and damage to the blood brain barrier. H2 has shown to repair the blood-brain barrier and increase neuroprotective ghrelin secretion in mice)
