Hydrogen-rich water has the highest antioxidant activity known to counteract free radicals.
One and a half liters of hydrogenated water corresponds to the antioxidant effect of consuming 40 carrots, 500 apples or 700 bananas.
Water consists of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms. Humans consider oxygen to be the most vital element, but hydrogen is at least as much. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in our body.
Water (Hydrogen) is the basis for all processes and cellular processes in our body.
Hydrogen is the lightest and smallest existing element and penetrates where other antioxidants can not, such as in neurons and cell nuclei. It is a very effective antioxidant in free radical degradation and reduces oxidative stress.
A pillar of life is oxidation. Oxygen reaction - already during the inhalation of oxygen, which we need for our metabolism, free radicals, the so-called oxygen radicals, are created. These oxygen radicals arise in our cells in the mitochondria (power plants of the cells).
The free radicals are molecules that lack electrons, which is why they extract these other molecules. This causes damage in various cell structures, such as human DNA.
Free radicals are thus compounds which possess one or more so-called unpaired electrons.
Most of the time, these free radicals are very reactive, meaning they are looking for electrons from other molecules.
The formation of free radicals is therefore a completely natural process.
But other factors, such as air pollution, UV radiation, unhealthy diet, inflammation, medication, smoking, etc., provide for "oxidative stress".
This so-called "oxidative stress" is associated with almost all diseases of civilization: allergies, atopic dermatitis, chronic inflammation, diabetes, hypertension, burnout, immunodeficiency, etc., resulting in premature aging.
HYDROGEN WATER AS ANTIOXIDANT
Many cells have lipid membranes (from fat). Hydrophilic compounds (water-but not fat-loving) can not penetrate the cell membrane of the mitochondria or the nucleus, and thus do not enter the DNA or the free radicals in the mitochondria or in the nucleus.
The brain has the blood-brain barrier to prevent bacteria and viruses from invading. But also positive things make access difficult or impossible.
Hydrogen can overcome all membranes and barriers because of the smallest molecule size and penetrates where other antioxidants can not, such as in neurons and cell nuclei.
Hydrogen only affects the free radicals (the body needs a few oxidants). It leaves behind its antioxidant effect, compared to other antioxidants, no residues.
Hydrogen increases our own defenses against the oxidation of free oxygen radicals. Hydrogen spreads and acts fastest in our organism.
