Antioxidants and free radicals

"In a healthy body a balance exists between the generation of radicals and the antioxidant enzymes that neutralise them.
Oxidative stress is the result of an imbalance between the production of ROS/RNS and the body’s ability to detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the resulting damage. 

Cells are protected against oxidative stress by an interacting network of antioxidant enzymes, which are 
- Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) (superoxide radical)
- Catalase (CAT) (hydrogen peroxide) and
- Glutathione Peroxidase (peroxide).

Did you know that Molecular Hydrogen (H2) targets free radicals?

Hydrogen scavenges the hydroxyl radical and increases the body’s natural antioxidant molecules. 
Also, due to its small size, it easily crosses cell membranes and has access to parts of the cell that other antioxidants are too large to reach.
Research based on over 350 scientific studies into the potential health benefits of molecular hydrogen has shown a number of conditions, especially those with a strong oxidative and inflammatory element in their progression, may be improved by the therapeutic use of Molecular Hydrogen.
These conditions include, but are not limited to:
  1. Metabolic Syndrome
  2. Cardiovascular health
  3. Obesity
  4. Fatigue

• Cognitive function
• Gastrointestinal Function including

– Liver detoxification capacity


– Pancreatitis
– IBD
• Chronic pain and inflammation
• Abnormal cell division
• Immune function"

When a person drinks hydrogenized water, particularly molecular hydrogen (H2),
H2 binds with O (oxygen=free radicals that cause oxidation) = H2O (water) in the body and is discharged as urine.

In theory, drinking hydrogenized water neutralizes free radicals, which are then flushed out from your body in the form of urine.

"Drink water coz you need to hydrate your body..."
