Hydrogen-rich water decreases serum LDL-cholesterol levels and improves HDL function

In Metabolism by CHESS

Authors have found that hydrogen (dihydrogen; H2) has beneficial lipid-lowering effects in high-fat diet-fed Syrian golden hamsters. The objective of this study was to characterize the effects of H2-rich water (0.9-1.0 l/day) on the content, composition, and biological activities of serum lipoproteins on 20 patients with potential metabolic syndrome. Serum analysis showed that consumption of H2-rich water for 10 weeks …

A novel method of preserving cardiac grafts using a hydrogen-rich water bath

In In vitro studies by CHESS

Exogenously administered hydrogen exerts cytoprotective effects through anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-apoptotic mechanisms in various disease settings, including organ transplantation. Objective in this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a novel cold storage device equipped with a hydrogen-rich water bath. The study used an established rat heterotopic transplantation model. Syngeneic heart grafts from elderly donors (60- to 70-week-old Lewis rats) …
