Molecular hydrogen is two hydrogen atoms bonded together (H₂). It exists as a gas and is the smallest molecule in the universe, which allows it to rapidly diffuse deep into all of your cells and mitochondria, as well as pass through your blood-brain barrier.
Human, animal, and cell studies show that hydrogen exerts its beneficial effects via three primary methods.
- H₂ instantly converts the most toxic free radicals to water: H₂ + 2 OH = 2H₂O
- H₂ supports the homeostatic levels of our body's antioxidants (e.g. glutathione)
- H₂ has a beneficial effect on cell signaling, cell metabolism, and gene expression - offering important wellness benefits.
