Free Radicals & Hydrogen Healthcare

Do you know Free Radicals?

  • Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons.
  • Free radicals are very unstable and react quickly with other compounds, trying to capture the needed electron to gain stability.
  • Generally, free radicals attack the nearest stable molecule, “stealing” its electron. When the “attacked” molecule loses its electron, it becomes a free radical itself, beginning a chain reaction. Once the process is started, it can cascade, finally resulting in the disruption of a living cell.
  • The oxygen absorbed during the breathing process is used in the process of producing energy, and 2 ~ 5% of the active oxygen is inevitably generated like car exhausts.



When do free radicals occur?

How do they affect human body?

90% cause of 36,000 types of human disease is free radicals

Beginning with Johns Hopkins University study in 1991, many studies have shown that free radicals affect 90% of human disease.

Hydrogen Molecules


International Journal of Clinical Medicine January, 2016

  • With 1,600 scientists worldwide studying molecular hydrogen, the current number of 600 published studies and reviews is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years.
  • At this time, the scientific community has indicated that molecular hydrogen may be beneficial in more than 170 diseases and for every organ in the human body.
Comprehensive Review Study on the Clinical Effects of Hydrogen:

How It Works

  • Hydrogen molecules (H2) protect cells from oxidative damage by neutralizing free radicals.
  • H2 scavenges the most harmful free radicals (hydroxyl radical) among active oxygens, converting it to water according to the reaction :

“It is not an overstatement to say that hydrogen’s impact on
Therapeutic and preventive medicine
could be enormous in the future.”

  • Increases antioxidant levels
  • Reduces recovery time after exercise
  • Neutralizes free radicals
  • Protects the DNA, RNA and proteins from oxidative stress
  • Supports cellular signaling
  • Triggers the activation of additional antioxidant enzymes ( glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, etc. )
  • Helps improve energy levels
