How Molecular Hydrogen heals our cells

How Molecular Hydrogen - Rich Water Protects and Heals our Cells

“As I explain molecular hydrogen and it’s amazing benefits to our cells, do keep in mind that most diseases begin at cellular level”.  Helen Coe

  • Molecular hydrogen – rich water is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals deep within the cell
  • Most disease is due to low levels of antioxidants and high levels of free radicals
  • Free radical or oxidative stress damages the cell’s normal structures. This causes cell death, mutation, or loss of its’ ability to function normally


  • Antioxidants are intimately involved in the prevention of cellular damage
  • Fruit and vegetables containing nutrients, vitamins ,minerals, and enzymes produce a substance known as an antioxidant
  • Research and science now recognize molecular hydrogen - rich water as the smallest and most effective antioxidant in the universe. It’s 100 times more effective than vitamin c




Why molecular hydrogen is more effective than regular antioxidants?

  • The smaller molecular size enables it to penetrate deeper into the cells mitochondria (the power house of the cell) where it takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy rich molecules for the cell
  • Note: It is now considered that molecular hydrogen may be the only antioxidant that is capable of reaching the mitochondria
  • Molecular hydrogen SELECTIVELY scavenges free radicals that cause cellular damage. It only destroys the damaging hydroxyl radicals
  • Regular antioxidants like vitamin c cannot selectively choose between the bad and good free radicals
  • Note: The body needs some non – damaging free radicals
  • When molecular hydrogen-rich water neutralizes the damaging free radicals it leaves water inside the cell. This has an added benefit of hydrating the cell even further
  • Regular antioxidants react differently by leaving a weakened electron

Molecular Hydrogen Foundation founder and executive director Tyler Le  Baron   says,

“This is not a conventional antioxidant in that it just indiscriminately scavenges all radicals”. 

A healthy cell is permeable, it allows nutrients in and waste out” “Nutrients in – waste out” – “The basis of all healing”



This diagram shows how regular antioxidants cannot penetrate the cells as easily as hydrogen.

Scientific researchers tell us that molecular hydrogen not only exerts antioxidant benefits to the cell, it also:

  • Prevents cell death (antiapoptotic)
  • Protects the cell (cytoprotection)
  • It has an anti-inflammatory effect
  • Molecular hydrogen also increases levels of Glutathione. Low levels of this antioxidant is linked to almost every disease. (See Pub. Med. for hundreds of articles published)

Molecular Hydrogen Foundation founder and executive director Tyler Le Baron says,

“Molecular hydrogen increases the levels of glutathione and other antioxidants if they are lower than they should be”.
