Hydrogen-rich saline for eye diseases

In Review papers by CHESS

As an antioxidant, hydrogen-rich water has been widely studied in recent years. It is mild enough neither to disturb metabolic redox reactions nor to affect signaling reactive oxygen species. Therefore, there should be no or few adverse effects of H(2). Numerous studies in biology and medicine show that hydrogen-rich water has achieved good results in nervous system, digestive system, respiratory …

Hydrogen protects the neurons against lead-induced oxidative stress

In Animal studies, Nervous system by CHESS

Despite the well-known toxicity and the efforts to control its exposure, lead still has a serious health concern, particularly in young ages. Chelation therapy cannot correct the neurocognitive effects of chronic exposure. So, there is a requirement to test different protective agents for lead intoxication. Hydrogen-rich water (HRW) has gained attraction recently as an antioxidant. Four groups of rats received …

Hydrogen-rich saline can alleviate the acute kidney injury after severe burns

In Animal studies, Kidney by CHESS

The main aim of this study was to explore the influences of hydrogen-rich saline on acute kidney injury in severely burned rats and to analyze the related mechanism. Fifty-six Sprague Dawley rats were divided into sham injury group (n=8), burn group (n=24), and hydrogen-rich saline group (n=24) according to the random number table. Rats in sham injury group were treated …

Hydrogen-rich water ameliorates placental stress

In Animal studies, Other studies by CHESS

Dehydration is one of the intrauterine abnormalities that could lead to fetal growth retardation and to increase the risk of a variety of adult diseases later in life. This study were to determine the impact of hydrogen-rich water (HRW) supplementation on placental angiotensin II type 1 receptor and placental oxidative stress induced by water restriction. Pregnant Wistar rat were randomly …

Hydrogen reduces tendon adhesion and inflammatory response

In Animal studies, Muscle by CHESS

A rat model of tendon repair was established to investigate the effects of hydrogen water on tendon adhesion reduction. Thirty‐six Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into a normal saline (NS) group and a hydrogen water (HS) group according to the processing reagents after a tendon repairing operation. Pre‐ and postoperative superoxide dismutase (SOD), malondialdehyde (MDA), and glutathione (GSH) in …

Hydrogen-rich water prevents vascular aging of the aorta

In Animal studies, Cardiovascular by CHESS

The main cause of arteriosclerosis is atherosclerosis in the aorta. Atherosclerosis is recognized as a chronic inflammatory condition that begins with the dysfunction or activation of arterial endothelium. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and especially its oxidized form play a key role in endothelial dysfunction and atherogenesis. Recent studies showed that senescent cells are involved in the development and progression of atherosclerosis, …

Hydrogen-rich water improves cognitive impairment

In Animal studies, Nervous system by CHESS

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is characterised as a provoked inflammatory response and oxidative stress along with amyloid β peptide (Aβ) deposition and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain, and effective treatment is greatly needed. Molecular hydrogen, which has been proposed to be an antioxidant that selectively reduces reactive oxygen species, was found to exert beneficial effects in Aβ injection-induced cognitive dysfunction. However, …

Hydrogen-rich water and high-fat-diet nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

In Animal studies, Liver by CHESS

The aim of this study was to identify the effect of hydrogen-rich water (HRW) and electrolyzed-alkaline water (EAW) on high-fat-induced non-alcoholic fatty acid disease in mice. Mice were divided into four groups: (1) Regular diet (RD)/regular water (RW); (2) high-fat diet (HFD)/RW; (3) RD/EAW; and (4) HFD/EAW. Weight and body composition were measured. After twelve weeks, animals were sacrificed, and …

FoxO1 and neuroprotective effects of hydrogen in vascular dementia

In Animal studies, Nervous system by CHESS

Vascular dementia (VD) is a heterogeneous group of brain disorders in which cognitive impairment is attributed to cerebrovascular pathologies. Autophagy, a self-cannibalization mechanism, has been demonstrated to be involved in VD progression. Molecular hydrogen is known for its powerful anti-oxidative, anti-apoptotic, and anti-inflammatory activities, and it is also involved in autophagy. However, the effects of hydrogen on VD remain unclear. …

Hydrogen-rich water affects antioxidant activity and gut flora in soccer players

In Exercise, Human studies by CHESS

Expending a considerable amount of physical energy inevitably leads to fatigue during both training and competition in football. An increasing number of experimental findings have confirmed the relationship between the generation and clearance of free radicals, fatigue, and exercise injury. Recently, hydrogen was identified as a new selective antioxidant with potential beneficial applications in sports. The present study evaluated the …
