WHAT IS MOLECULAR HYDROGEN?
First off, when we talk about molecular hydrogen (H2), most people do not have the slightest idea of what we are talking about. Taking a step back to highlight the relevance of the topic at hand, we would like first talk about hydrogen as this is the best bet to understanding Molecular Hydrogen and its relevance to us today
Hydrogen is a chemical element on the periodic table with the symbol H with an atomic number 1 and standard atomic weight of 1.008. It is the lightest element on the periodic table as it is. But only when two hydrogen atoms bond together is when we have molecular hydrogen. A good example is when two hydrogen atoms bond with a single oxygen atom to form water
Hydrogen can do far more than we give it credit. Beyond our wildest imagination, we never knew that the lightest element on the periodic table could be the next big thing and the most prevalent molecule in the universe today especially when it come which is the background of the entire study. On scientific basis, hydrogen is very reactive and has a very high tendency to bond with another hydrogen atom almost immediately to form the molecular hydrogen (H2 gas).
Now as we know, hydrogen has a uniquely small size and mass and a neutral charge. These unique features give it the ability to easily penetrate the cell membrane as well as the blood brain barrier and even the cell nucleus where it repairs and protect DNA, enhancing mitochondrial health. This breakthrough has been staring us right in the face but with the improvement in the scientific methods and other form of healthcare development we are able adequately use this development to our advantage.
Interesting Facts about Hydrogen
- Hydrogen is odorless, colorless, and tasteless; in this way, it is imperceptible by human senses.
- About 10 percent of the heaviness of living life forms is hydrogen essentially in water, proteins and fats.
- Liquid hydrogen has the most minimal thickness of any fluid.
- Hydrogen is the main component that can exist without neutrons. Hydrogen’s most bountiful isotope has no neutrons.
- We owe the greater part of the vitality on our planet to hydrogen. The Sun’s atomic flames change over hydrogen to helium discharging a lot of vitality.
- In nature, H2 is created by microscopic organisms and green growth by means of anaerobic digestion. This may represent a portion of the H2 that is distinguished in our air despite the fact that it’s not at a sufficiently high fixation to have any kind of effect in our lives.
- For people, the microscopic organisms in your digestion tracts produce H2 as they age unabsorbed sugars. The H2 created in your digestion tracts is either breathed out by means of your breath or fart. Typically, the measure of Molecular Hydrogen created by the microorganisms in your gut isn’t sufficient to give observable restorative advantages.
- Hydrogen is highly flammable but will not ignite unless an oxidizer which is air and ignition source are present. One of the major reasons why it is the fuel of choice used by NASA for space exploration.
Molecular Hydrogen for Health
1. Activation power
Molecular hydrogen helps the body’s antioxidant system through an activation pattern which is selective, signaling specific cell pathways which in turn contribute to regulation of detoxification, antioxidant and cell small genes.
2. Cell Modulation
Molecular hydrogen has a greatly known ability to access the nucleus and the mitochondria, producing very unique cell-modulating effects which can affect health gene expressions, cell metabolism and cell signaling in a very positive way yielding anti-obesity (a well sought function), anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy and anti-aging effects, things which many individuals today spend a whole lot of money trying to achieve.
3. Anti-oxidant Power
Molecular hydrogen is a very powerful antioxidant. It is very powerful in the sense that it targets only the worst of free radicals in the body like hydroxyl free radical (OH). The simplicity attached to the elimination of this free radical when it comes to molecular hydrogen is astonishing and can never be over emphasized. In the diagram below you will how free radicals a major cause of oxidative stress can affect our bodies health.
Molecular hydrogen converts the most toxic free radicals into water without the slightest sight of any negative effect or by product.
