Molecular Hydrogen

Hydrogen (H) is the lightest and simplest element. Molecular hydrogen is the primary form in which hydrogen is found.

Two hydrogen atoms (H2) are covalently bounded together as H-H, forming molecular hydrogen or dihydrogen. The hydrogen molecule contains two protons and two electrons making it a neutrally-charged molecule.

Therapeutic Effects

Research on molecular hydrogen has more than 700 peer-reviewed articles, with more compelling research happening every day.

These publications demonstrate hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ in the human body and in 170 different human and animal disease models.

“The evolution of molecular hydrogen: a noteworthy potential therapy with clinical significance.”

“Hydrogen is extremely unique since it has the capability to act at the cellular level. Hydrogen is qualified to cross the blood-brain barrier, to enter the mitochondria, and even has the ability to translocate to the nucleus under certain conditions. Once in these ideal locations of the cell, previous studies have shown that hydrogen exerts antioxidant, anti-apoptotic, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective properties that are beneficial to the cell.”
