Breath hydrogen produced by ingestion of commercial hydrogen water

In Human studies, Metabolism by CHESS

This study compared how and to what extent ingestion of hydrogen water and milk increase breath hydrogen in adults. Five subjects without specific diseases, ingested distilled or hydrogen water and milk as a reference material that could increase breath hydrogen. Their end-alveolar breath hydrogen was measured. Ingestion of hydrogen water rapidly increased breath hydrogen to the maximal level of approximately …

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 …

Molecular hydrogen consumption in the human body during the inhalation of hydrogen gas

In Human studies, Metabolism by CHESS

Inhaling or ingesting hydrogen (H2) gas improves oxidative stress-induced damage in animal models and humans. It has been previously reported that H2 was consumed throughout the human body after the ingestion of H2-rich water and that the H2 consumption rate (VH2) was 1.0 ╬╝mol/min/m(2) body surface area. To confirm this result, authors evaluated VH2 during the inhalation of low levels …

Hydrogen-rich water improves lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes

In Human studies, Metabolism by CHESS

Oxidative stress is recognized widely as being associated with various disorders including diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. It is well established that hydrogen has a reducing action. We therefore investigated the effects of hydrogen-rich water intake on lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with either type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). We performed a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, …

Effectiveness of hydrogen rich water in subjects with potential metabolic syndrome

In Human studies, Metabolism by CHESS

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by cardiometabolic risk factors that include obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension and dyslipidemia. Oxidative stress is known to play a major role in the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome. The objective of this study was to examine the effectiveness of hydrogen rich water (1.5-2 L/day) in an open label, 8-week study on 20 subjects with potential metabolic syndrome. …
