Colloidal platinum in hydrogen-rich water exhibits radical-scavenging activity and improves blood fluidity

In In vitro studies by CHESS

The ‘colloidal platinum’ stabilized with polyvinylpyrrolidone (Pt/PVP-colloid) was dispersed in hydrogen-rich water (HW; hydrogen concentration, 0.82 ppm; oxidation-reduction potential, -583 mV) or regular water (RW; <0.01 ppm, +218 mV). Authors evaluated the antioxidant activity of Pt/PVP-colloid in HW or RW on 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging and improvement of blood fluidity under 2,2′-azobis (2-amidinopropane) dihydrochloride (AAPH)-induced oxidative stress. When applied with …

Hydrogen-rich water intake may prevent lipid deposition in the rat aorta induced by periodontitis

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

Periodontitis has been causally linked to atherosclerosis, which is mediated by the oxidative stress. As hydrogen-rich water (HW) scavenges reactive oxygen species (ROS), authors hypothesized that HW could prevent lipid deposition induced by periodontitis in the aorta. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of HW on the initiation of atherosclerosis in a rat periodontitis model. Eighteen …
