Supplementation of hydrogen-rich water improves lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes or impaired glucose tolerance

Abstract Oxidative stress is recognized widely as being associated with various disorders including diabetes, hypertension, and atherosclerosis. It is well established that hydrogen has a reducing action. We, therefore, investigated the effects of hydrogen-rich water intake on lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with either type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) or impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). […]

Hydrogen-Rich Saline as an Innovative Therapy for Cataract: A Hypothesis

Cataract is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Increasing evidence indicates that oxidative stress is an important risk factor contributing to the development of cataract. Moreover, the enhancement of the antioxidant defense system may be benecial to prevent or delay the cataractogenesis. The term oxidative stress has been de ned as a disturbance in […]

A novel bioactive haemodialysis system using dissolved dihydrogen produced by water electrolysis: a clinical trial

Abstract Background. Chronic inflammation in haemodialysis (HD) patients indicates a poor prognosis. However, therapeutic approaches are limited. Hydrogen gas (H2) ameliorates oxidative and inflammatory injuries to organs in animal models. We developed an HD system using a dialysis solution with high levels of dissolved H2 and examined the clinical effects. Methods. Dialysis solution with H2 […]
