Hydrogen as a selective antioxidant: a review of clinical and experimental studies

In Review papers by CHESS

There is a clear need for more effective and safer antioxidants. Diatomic hydrogen (H(2)) was proposed as a novel antioxidant that selectively reduces levels of toxic reactive-oxygen species. Recently, many studies have …
