Consumption of hydrogen water prevents atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E knockout mice

In Animal studies, Cardiovascular by CHESS

Oxidative stress is implicated in atherogenesis; however most clinical trials with dietary antioxidants failed to show marked success in preventing atherosclerotic diseases. Authors have found that hydrogen (dihydrogen; H(2)) acts as an effective antioxidant to reduce oxidative stress [I. Ohsawa, M. Ishikawa, K. Takahashi, M. Watanabe, K. Nishimaki, K. Yamagata, K. Katsura, Y. Katayama, S, Asoh, S. Ohta, Hydrogen acts …

Hydrogen gas reduces infarct size in the rat model of myocardial ischemia

In Animal studies, Cardiovascular by CHESS

Inhalation of hydrogen (H(2)) gas has been demonstrated to limit the infarct volume of brain and liver by reducing ischemia-reperfusion injury in rodents. When translated into clinical practice, this therapy must be most frequently applied in the treatment of patients with acute myocardial infarction, since angioplastic recanalization of infarct-related occluded coronary artery is routinely performed. Therefore, we investigate whether H(2) …
