One of the most dramatic and effective therapeutic modalities for targeting a spectrum of chronic, degenerative diseases – as well as potentially having a direct impact on quality of life/healthspan is now starting to gain some traction in North America.
Used for many years as a therapeutic intervention for serious health issues by the medical community in countries such as Japan, hydrogen therapy is now starting to gain attention in the naturopathic/integrative and functional medicine communities.
Just this past week I was contacted by two local clinics here in Vancouver inquiring about whether I had knowledge about H2 therapy (I do) – and whether I knew where to access a new patent pending H2 tablet product which is becoming very widely used in the U.S. (I do know the contacts for accessing this product).
Six months ago I had the good fortune to meet with one of the co-inventors of this new patent pending tablet technology, to learn more about the product and the research behind it – and as well I have been personally taking the product for some six months now.
So as I do with many interesting therapeutic modalities which may have an impact on disease processes and health, I took a deep dive into the literature to understand more about H2 therapy – and the published research is very impressive:
From an article from the website H2fx.com:
Research shows molecular hydrogen has the potential to exhibits these effects:
- Anti-Inflammatory Effects 13
- Smallest, most bioavailable molecule in existence 14
- Selective antioxidant 15
- Participates in Gene Expression 16
- Anti-Allergic Effects 17
- Anti-Cellular Death 18
- Anti-Aging 19
- Reduces aches and pains 20
- Protective to skin 21
- Cardioprotective 22
- Increases Metabolism 23
- Increases Body’s Antioxidants (Nrf2 activator) 24
- Decreases Muscle Fatigue 25
- Reduces Lactate Levels 26
- Anti-Diabetic Effects (type 1 and 2) Type 1, 27 Type 2, 28
- Anticancer 29
- Improves Cognitive Function 30
- Protects DNA & RNA 31
- Anti-Tumor Effects 32
- Cytotoxic Protection 33
- Neuroprotective 34
- Radiation Protection 35

Based on scientific studies/evidence, hydrogen gas therapy has the potential to benefit:
