Where are the free radicals?
Free radical is one of the main causes of aging and other severe diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, cancers, etc.
Free radicals can be found and generated in almost all activities involving oxygen. According to the Huntington's Outreach Project for Education at Stanford University, free-radical presents in our food, water, medications, and even the air. Some common sources include fried food, alcohol, tobacco, pesticides, air pollutants and UV light. (Szalay. J, 2016)
“Free radicals thus adversely alter lipids, proteins, and DNA and trigger a number of diseases” (Lobo et al., 2010)
“The free radicals induced oxidative stress has been reported to be involved in several diseased conditions such as diabetes mellitus, neurodegenerative disorders (Parkinson’s disease-PD, Alzheimer’s disease-AD and Multiple sclerosis-MS), cardiovascular diseases (atherosclerosis and hypertension), respiratory diseases (asthma), cataract development, rheumatoid arthritis and in various cancers (colorectal, prostate, breast, lung, bladder cancers).

How does hydrogen water work?
Hydrogen water helps pump the molecular hydrogen into our body, which will react to remove the oxidative, highly reactive free radicals to form water molecules. It is scientifically proven over the years to be a powerful antioxidant to alleviate signs of aging, reduce cancer risks and detox.

|Rouleau-Red blood cells were observed, which are stacks or aggregations of blood cells.||Rouleau-Red blood cells separated to become healthy normocytic blood cells.|
|This is the biological signal when the subject is under physical or mental stress, which may lead to elevated blood pressure, increased sedimentation rate, etc.||The red blood cell are now negatively charged to repel each other which signals a healthy state of blood, pumping smooth blood flow and reduced blood pressure.|
“Molecular hydrogen (H2) has potential as a “novel” antioxidant in preventive and therapeutic applications.”
“There are several methods to ingest or consume H2, including inhaling hydrogen gas, drinking H2-dissolved water (hydrogen water)…”. (Ohta, S. 2011)
“Since the publication of the first H2 paper in Nature Medicine in 2007, the biological effects of H2 have been confirmed by the publication of more than 38 diseases, physiological states and clinical tests in leading biological/medical journals, and several groups have started clinical examinations.” (Ohta, S. 2011)
“Moreover, H2 shows not only effects against oxidative stress, but also various anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects. H2 regulates various gene expressions and protein-phosphorylations, though the molecular mechanisms underlying the marked effects of very small amounts of H2 remain elusive.” (Ohta, S. 2011)
