How hydrogen effects on the human body

– on its healthcare benefits –

Hydrogen has been attracting attention all over the world as a beneficial element for the human body.

This section provides basic information about hydrogen as a health-maintaining factor.
Those are such as “what is hydrogen” ,”what kind of effects it can have on the human body”,
and “what symptoms it can improve”.

As for more advanced / specialized information you can refer “Hydrogen Science” section.
On that page, we have more technical information which are accumulated through
joint development with various medical institutions and research institutes.
Therefore, please refer to that as well.

Now let’s start from the very basic questions.
What is Hydrogen?
Why it is good for human body?

Hydrogen is the smallest element in the universe

Hydrogen (H) has the atomic number 1.
It is the smallest element made up of one proton and one electron.
The smallest element in the universe, “hydrogen,” is the source of all elements.

Antioxidant effect of hydrogen

Hydrogen gas (H2) has an “antioxidant effect”. H2 combines with oxygen (O) to become water (H20).
Various body disorders, diseases, and aging are caused by “oxidation of cells”.
This is because the “reactive oxygen” created in the body damages and oxidizes cells.
Therefore, how to remove “active oxygen” from the body becomes a problem.
Hydroxyl radicals are extremely reactive radicals among active oxygen.
And it is believed that most of the biological damage caused by active oxygen is due to hydroxyl radicals.
Some active oxygen species are free radicals that are harmful to the human body, and other useful ones are not.
Hydrogen gas has the property of decomposing only harmful free radicals.
While on the other hand, other antioxidants such as Vitamin C will remove both useful and harmful ones.
Hydrogen (to be precise, hydrogen gas H2) has an antioxidant effect.
And it is bound to active oxygen (O) in the body to form water (H2O), which is then discharged outside the body as sweat or urine.

Hydrogen reaches the brain and spreads throughout the body

Hydrogen, being the smallest molecule  in the universe, reaches the brain and spreads throughout the body.
High molecule such as vitamins cannot cross blood brain barrier but the smaller hydrogen can.
This Hydrogen molecule diffuses through the brain, and prevent the brain from aging and oxidation.

Hydrogen has the following effects.

  • Antioxidant effect
  • Anti-inflammatory effect
  • Allergy control
  • Cell death suppression effect
  • Energy metabolism promoting effect
  • Circulation improvement effect
  • Lipid metabolism improving effect
  • Brain function improving effect
  • Promotes insulin secretion
  • Cancer growth/metastasis inhibitory effect

Therefore, effective against these symptoms and more!!

  • Recovery from Fatigue / Insomnia / Constipation / Headache
  • Cranial nerve disease (Dementia / Parkinson’s disease / Cerebral infarction)
  • Myocardial infarction / Arteriosclerosis / Asthma / Diabetes / Allergy control
  • Cancer prevention / treatment
How to absorb hydrogen effectively

By now, we all know that Hydrogen is good for our healthy life.
Now the question is how can we absorb hydrogen effectively in our daily life.
There are several methods depending on the purposes.
Please refer below and consider the best way for you to take Hydrogen most effectively.

1. Drinking Hydrogen Water

This is popular and easy way for people to intake hydrogen.
Yet you need to select good device to generate high concentration pure hydrogen water.
(Among our product line-up, we also have the product to generate varieties of hydrogen beverages,
such as tea and juice.)
Once you drink hydrogen water from your mouth, the hydrogen is absorbed from the intestines
and travels throughout the whole body with blood flow.
By drinking, body absorbs hydrogen slowly and it stays longer.

2. Inhaling Hydrogen Gas

If you inhale hydrogen gas, you can expect more immediate effect.
Hydrogen gas is absorbed from the lungs and spreads throughout the whole body.
Generally, hydrogen gas inhalation is understood to be more effective for lungs and brain compared
to drinking Hydrogen water.
And thus we see many cases of using our Hydrogen gas Inhaler for some kind of medical treatments
at hospitals and clinics.

Product development based on accurate measurement – GAS CHROMATGRAPHY

There are countless types of hydrogen water products in the market today.
Therefore, people have to check the performance of each machines and select the effective ones.
In order to obtain the antioxidant effect of hydrogen, it is necessary to select a product that generates highly concentrated hydrogen water.
However, it seems that not all products have accurately measured concentrations.
At exhibitions, you may see a simple performance to measure the concentration by changing the color of the test solution.
But unfortunately, these test solutions often react with elements other than hydrogen as well, so it is not always accurate.

For all our customers to drink genuine high-concentration hydrogen water, and in order to obtain accurate and objective measurements,
we outsource this measurement to an external organization JHyPA (Japan Molecular Hydrogen Promotion Association).
Doctors Man’s hydrogen water products are measured by Gas Chromatography measurement for accurate performance values.
