Hydrogen protects against nephrotoxicity and early tumor promotional events in rats

In Animal studies, Kidney by CHESS

The aim of this work was to test whether consumption with hydrogen-rich water (HW) alleviated renal injury and inhibited early tumor promotional events in Ferric nitrilotriacetate (Fe-NTA)-treated rats. Rats were injected with Fe-NTA solution (7.5mg Fe/kg body weight) intraperitoneally to induce renal injury and simultaneously treated with HW (1.3±0.2mg/l). We found that consumption with HW ameliorated Fe-NTA-induced renal injuries including …

Hydrogen-rich water improved liver function in patients with chronic hepatitis B

In Human studies, Inflammation by CHESS

This study investigated effects of hydrogen-rich water (HRW) on oxidative stress, liver function and HBV DNA in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB). Sixty patients with CHB were randomly assigned into routine treatment group or hydrogen treatment group in which patients received routine treatment alone or additional oral HRW (1200-1800 mL/day, twice daily), respectively, for 6 consecutive weeks. Serum oxidative …
