Molecular Hydrogen H2 Functions As An Extensive Protector Against Oxidative Stress.
Molecular hydrogen is a medical gas that can be dissolved in water or administered through drinking, inhalation and applied trans-dermally.
Hydrogen is able to cross the blood brain barrier, enter the mitochondria, and even has the ability to translocate to the nucleus under certain conditions, reports Dr. Brandon J Dixon in Medical Gas Research.
Because of it’s size, molecular hydrogen can do a lot of things larger molecules of known antioxidants cant. Once in theses ideal location of the cell, previous studies have shown that hydrogen exerts antioxidant, anti-apoptotic, anti-inflammation, and cytoprotective properties that are beneficial to the cell.
