Hydrogen is the
Ultimate Antioxidant

Hydrogen Science is “Really” the Science of
Longer Life and Better Quality of Life

Free Radicals Damage Our Molecules, Mitochondria, DNA, Cell Membranes, Etc. — Aging Us.

Hydrogen atoms stop that damage. They are reductants, or ANTI–OXIDANTS — They Work to Keep Us Younger, Longer. In other words, YOU NEED THEM!


Free Radicals Are The Silent, Ever-Present Destroyers Of Molecules, Cells and Life:


  • free_radicalScience has taught us that free radicals are molecules missing one or more electrons. They are either created inside one's body during metabolism or they enter as external toxins that a person has breathed, drunk, eaten or absorbed through the skin.
  • Once inside a person's body, free radicals do great and continuing damage unless they are neutralized.
  • For the above reason, free radicals need to be neutralized by receiving an electron from an anti-oxidant, which is a special kind of molecule that can give away an electron without, itself becoming a free radical (or, as in the case of Vitamin C and Vitamin E, without becoming an aggressive free-radical). Technically, an anti-oxidant REDuces the OXidant, which is why this process is sometimes called REDOX.
  • Hydrogen atoms are the simplest and most effective of all antioxidant molecules, and are readily able to neutralize free radicals.
  • hydrogen_plus_free_radical_equals_waterh2o_117hydrogen_atom1Active hydrogen, which is free hydrogen, IE, hydrogen not bonded to another atom,  consists of one proton and one electron, and the electron is easily given to an oxygen radical (one of the most common free radicals) or to other types of free radicals that may be missing an electron. In the former case, the Hydrogen atom combines with an oxygen free radical to make water which further hydrates the body, helping the body in virtually every way.
    • In other words, as hydrogen reduces free radicals, it does not, itself, become a free radical
    • and it also increases one's hydration, which is a WIN-WIN.
  • Because hydrogen is so small, hydrogen can go everywhere in the body, and penetrate all organs and tissues  to neutralize free radicals.




Aging is progressive cellular damage... and most often that damage is caused by unbalanced REDOX... meaning that there are too many free radicals in the body... or in other words there are more oxidizing actions (stripping electrons from healthy molecules) than reducing actions (adding electrons to molecules that are missing them)!

When discussing human health disorders (in general), Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi said, A single key mechanism of disease (and aging) that dominates all others is nothing but REDOX reaction. So that, if we can find a way to control it (the REDOX reaction), we can conquer the disorder. Water rich in atomic as well as molecular hydrogen should be an ultimate solution for it as far as my theory is concerned.”

Again, because Hydrogen is such a small atom, it easily penetrates all tissues and fluids of the body, whether brain tissue, mitochondria, bone or cellular cytoplasm, while other larger antioxidants do not have such a freedom, and are thus limited in their reach and scope of benefit. Thus, supplying hydrogen atoms to the body is just about the highest priority one should have in preserving health.

Scientists Have Been Learning About the Health Benefits of Hydrogen for Nearly a Century

— Scientists has been learning the importance of the hydrogen atom in human health over the past 80 years.

In 1937 - Dr. Györgyi reports that Hydrogen is at the root of energy creation

albertszentgyorgyiThe first scientist to talk about hydrogen was Dr. Szent-Györgyi who won the Nobel Prize for Vitamin C curing scurvy in 1937.

In his discovery he found that Hydrogen is the only fuel the body recognizes and describes the body's natural process of digesting carbohydrates to provide hydrogen in the making of ATP or energy for the body.

Says Dr. Györgyi, “the fact that our body really only knows one fuel, hydrogen. The foodstuff, carbohydrate, is essentially a packet of hydrogen, a hydrogen supplier, a hydrogen donor, and the main event during its combustion is the splitting off of hydrogen. So the combustion of hydrogen is the real energy-supplying reaction; To the elucidation of reaction (6), which seems so simple, I have devoted all my energy for the last fifteen years.”€ - Albert Szent-Györgyi, PhD


The Nobel Prize was awarded to Dr. Peter Mitchell in 1978 for his theory of hydrogen’s essentiality to chemiosmosis (mitochondrial energy).

dr_peter_mitchellAccording to this model of Dr. Peter Mitchell, Hydrogen is essential in the production of ATP in the mitochondria, the source of all energy in the cells, and therefore the body. This works through hydrogen dehydrogenase, a flavoprotein catalyzing the conversion of NAD+ to NADH by molecular hydrogen (H2); H2 + NAD  → H+ + NADH. Molecular hydrogen, H2, is very prevalent in our hydrogen-rich water as shown by research certificate from the Shiga Institute. This is the seminal work in cellular energy production also helps explain the energy on demand available from hydrogen-rich water.

What is the bottom line of this structure and function claim? Clearly, ATP production can be supported by the increased presence of molecular hydrogen, and this explains the consistently positive reports we receive from athletes attesting to dramatic increases in energy reserves.


Come forward to today and now thanks  to Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, MD cardiac surgeon has found a way to bring  hydrogen to the body that is inexpensive, portable and available to all.
