Antioxidants such as vitamin C* are chemicals which can neutralize the oxidants. Oxidants are chemicals which cause damage to our tissues. These oxidants may result from environmental contamination.
Molecular hydrogen (H2) was once considered inactive in our cells. It has been found to be a powerful antioxidant with very few side effects. H2 enters tissues rapidly when taken by inhaling H2 gas, drinking H2 water, bathing in H2 bath salts, injecting H2-saline, or putting H2 eye drops into the eyes.
Benefits of H2 treatment include the following: Anti-inflammatory, antiallergic, antiapoptosis**, and increased energy metabolism.
CONCLUSION: “Owing to its great efficacy and lack of adverse effects, H2 has potential for clinical applications for many diseases.”
NOTES: *Antioxidants include vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, and selenium.
**Antiapoptosis refers to something that works against a cells natural tendency to destroy itself if it is injured or altered badly.
