Why do we add molecular hydrogen to water?
Our bodies develop free radicals (unstable molecules that are formed when atoms gain or lose electrons) due to stress, pollution, unhealthy diets and certain lifestyle choices. Excessive free radicals contribute to the breaking down of our DNA, ribonucleic acid and proteins, leading to cell damage and disease. Learning to neutralise and balance free radicals is key to reducing oxidative stress and maintaining good physical and mental health.
Hydrogen molecules are extremely light and small. This facilitates their rapid diffusion into the body. Once absorbed into the bloodstream, they can activate antioxidant enzymes and target the most harmful free radicals in our bodies, converting them into water. By penetrating the cell membrane and nucleus, molecular hydrogen can repair and protect our DNA, enhancing mitochondrial health. What’s more, molecular hydrogen is considered to be one of the safest antioxidants for our bodies because it leaves no by-products.
One of the easiest, most accessible and effective ways to consume molecular hydrogen is by drinking hydrogen-enriched water.
