The health benefits of hydrogen water were first introduced to western medicine in 1975, whenScience published a study using hydrogen as a potential treatment for cancer, but hydrogen was used for healing long before this study was published. For millennia, people have journeyed to four sacred healing centers in the world: Lourdes in France, Tlacote in Mexico, Nadana in India, and Nordenauer in Germany to benefit from the miraculous effects of their natural spring waters. Thousands of people experienced relief from their ailments and many were even cured of diseases like leukemia, radiation poisoning, cancer, paralysis, visual impairments, skin diseases, polio and other issues that no doctor could treat. After extensive study, scientists found that the one unique element of all four locations was the high level of hydrogen gas in the water.
Free hydrogen gas is molecularly active, making it the perfect candidate to bond with the activated oxygen, or free radicals, that cause cell damage and contribute to aging and disease.
"Free radicals can cause damage to parts of cells such as proteins, DNA, and cell membranes by stealing their electrons through a process called oxidation. (This is why free radical damage is also called “oxidative damage.”) When free radicals oxidize important components of the cell, those components lose their ability to function normally, and the accumulation of such damage may cause the cell to die. Numerous studies indicate that increased production of free radicals causes or accelerates nerve cell injury and leads to disease." (source: Stamford.edu)
Elements and compounds that remove free radicals from the body are what modern health experts call “antioxidants.” Hydrogen is the smallest known atom, allowing it to pass into our bloodstream quickly, penetrate the mitochondria of our cells, and even pass through the blood-brain barrier, giving it unprecedented access to heal our bodies. The next smallest antioxidant molecule is Vitamin C, which is a whopping 176 times larger than hydrogen. This makes hydrogen one of the most powerful antioxidants known to man.
In the daily recommended serving of highly concentrated hydrogen water (2 Liters), you consume the same amount of antioxidants that are in the following amount of fruits and vegetables:
1,500 bananas 1,000 apples, 90 servings of spinach and 75 carrots.
The benefits of hydrogen water can be realized by everyone from young children, senior citizens, cancer patients, allergy sufferers and athletes, to someone who is simply health conscious and wishes to incorporate hydrogen water into their daily health routine. Below are some of the potential benefits of hydrogen water.*
