“Molecular hydrogen is protective against 6-hydroxydopamine-induced nigrostriatal degeneration in a rat model of Parkinson’s disease“.
Yuan Fu et al.
Hydrogen-rich water is a selective antioxidant that reduces hydroxyl radicals, but not the other reactive oxygen and nitrogen species… In Parkinson’s disease, mitochondrial dysfunction and the associated oxidative stress, are major causes of dopaminergic cell loss… “Our studies suggest that hydrogen water is likely able to retard the development and progression of Parkinson’s disease”.
“Hydrogen is neuroprotective against surgically induced brain injury“.
Jan M. Eckermann et al. Medical Gas Research, 2011. 1(1): p. 7.
Neurosurgical operations cause unavoidable damage to healthy brain tissues. Direct surgical injury as well as surgically induced oxidative stress contributes to the subsequent formation of brain edema. Therefore, we tested the neuroprotective effects of hydrogen (H2) in rats.
Hydrogen (2.9%) administered concurrently with surgery significantly decreased the formation of cerebral edema (p = 0.028) and improved neurobehavioral score (p = 0.022)…Hydrogen appears to be promising as an effective, yet inexpensive way to reduce cerebral edema caused by surgical procedures. Hydrogen has the potential to improve clinical outcome, decrease hospital stay, and reduce overall cost to patients and the health care system.
“Oral ‘hydrogen water’ induces neuroprotective ghrelin secretion in mice“.
Akio Matsumoto et al.
The study demonstrated that supplementation with hydrogen-rich water resulted in an increased production of the hormone ghrelin (which is a hormone of interest in relation to sleep, appetite, memory, depression and even cancer due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic potential).
Drinking hydrogen water and intermittent hydrogen gas exposure, but not lactulose or continuous hydrogen gas exposure, prevent 6-hydorxydopamine-induced Parkinson’s disease in rats.

Deuterium Depleted Water relating to brain function
“Deuterium content of water increases depression susceptibility: the potential role of a serotonin-related mechanism”
Tatyana Strekalova et al.
The study investigated the possible link between deuterium content of water and depression, both epidemiologically, and in a mouse model of chronic mild stress.
The study showed that deuterium depletion through the use of deuterium depleted water, decreased depression score, gave more restful sleep and sharpened wakefulness.
“Deuterium-depleted water has stimulating effects on long-term memory in rats”
Cristian Mladin et al.
Deuterium-depleted water (DDW) is a water which has a 6-7-fold less concentration of the naturally occurring deuterium (20-25ppm vs. 150ppm). While administrated for a longer period, it may reduce the concentration of deuterium throughout the body, thus activating cellular mechanisms which are depending on protons (channels, pumps, enzyme proteins). The aim of the present work was to study, for the first time in our knowledge, the possible influence of deuterium-depleted water (DDW) chronic administration in normal Wistar rats, as compared to a control group which received distilled water, on spatial working memory and the locomotor activity (as studied through Y-maze) or both short-term and long-term spatial memory (assed in radial 8 arms-maze task).
…we could speculate that the administration of DDW may generate an improvement of the reference memory, as an index of long-term memory. Thus, we can reach the conclusion that the change between the deuterium/hydrogen balance may have important consequences for the mechanisms that govern long-term memory, as showed here especially in the behavioral parameters from the eight-arm radial maze task.
